That being said German aces itself in technology, a good company from Germany that successfully presented the blend of build quality, excellent audio performance and price factor. Sennheiser is a well-established player in the audio accessories market, and here we are with newly launched in-ear earphones, Sennheiser CX 3.00.
Stylish, comfortable, and sound that is crispy enough, Sennheiser CX 3.00 offers a complete package at relatively affordable price.
To start with packaging in the box you get a carry case, made in such a way to keep earphones tangle and damage free. It includes a spare set of soft earpiece tips, and they come in four different sizes, XS, S, M, and L. Also, you will be having a safety usage guide for damage prevention.
Headsets look elegant, and we tested the white color version. It comes in Red & black and black only color options too. However, regarding looks, they are far away from the instantly recognizable iconic look of beats earphone. With 1.2m long cable it weighs around mere 12gms.
This time, Sennheiser has decided to opt for the one with a slight angle from straight ones, and this results in comfort, sound quality and how well they fit.
The earphone is entirely made of plastic but doesn’t look cheap at all. Cable is not completely flat but helps in preventing tangles. In earpiece has silver Sennheiser logo on the outside and is equipped with a basis L-shaped 3.5mm audio jack.
Though there is still debate over whether a straight or L-shaped plug going, you may get tough time to pull it out from your phone in case you are using it with jelly cover. Cable lengths for both the ear are identical and has a small sliding wiggle for adjusting cable’s length up to your chin.
Also, it offers the two-year warranty, which is like the bonus for its users. So I won’t mind stuffing these into my jeans pocket and bag’s pocket. Looking at the price, build quality is very well and seems durable. However, it lacks microphone that is an essential and must have feature for phone users.
Perfectly angled nozzle just disappear in my ears and makes it super comfortable even for a long time use and you can wear them almost indefinitely due to perfect fit and light weight nature of these earphones. Given the size options of earpiece you get to choose the size according to your comfort zone but standard medium size ear tip fits in effortlessly with utterly comfort seal. Also, they don’t bother if you sleep/resting on pillow wearing them.
As aforesaid, earphones has great hit and grip. Consequently, you get impressive noise isolation. Bass is something you will get plenty of here, and it was on little higher side for me.
I used CX 3.00 with both Android and iOS devices, and CX 3.00 played them effortlessly, with a smooth sound signature. Audio is expressive, loud, enough treble to make your music more enjoyable but subtle details are lost due to excessive bass. The company claims frequency response 17Hz-21kHz which makes it a dynamic and bass-driven earphone.
