Sennheiser CX 180 Street II In-Ear Headphone Review
The Sennheiser CX 180 Street II in-Ear Headphone is one of the best-selling audio gadgets in India. In fact, retailers claim that Sennheiser is already rationing supplies to them because of the demands across the country.
Despite facing competition from other high-quality audio products, Sennheiser CX 180 still manages to attract more customers. Apart from the price, what other features put on top of the list? Today we are going to discuss this and more about Sennheiser CX 180 Street II Headphone.
Bass is one of the main things that the manufacturers considered while coming up with this headphone. The boost in bass was basically done to appeal most of the bu, ers and it did the trick. Nonetheless, the bass and attack feature does not kill the overall sound quality. The highs and mids can still decent for an earphone of its price range.
Passive Noise Reduction
Are you searching for a pair of earphones that cancel the noise made by those around you? Sennheiser CX 180 is one of the best solutions to that since it reduces external sound by a significant percentage. The fact that it is an in-ear headphone makes it even more effective at what it does.
It has a frequency range of between 20 and 20,000 HZ, which is an ideal range for any standard headphone. As such, the speakers can perfectly play audio sounds with varying frequency values. However, remember that a wider frequency range does not necessarily mean better sound quality.
It has an average impedance of 16 ohms across all supported frequencies. This value is on par with some of the most expensive headsets in the market. As such, it is protected from “blow-outs” since it can withstand high currents without damaging important components.
What Do We like
Based on its features, Sennheiser CX 180 has proven to be the best headset within its price range. Considering the quality of its output, the total costs you will incur are worth the investment. If you are looking for a budget earphone, then this is your best option.
If you are a bass lover, you will like the sound output of this earphone. It sounds like a portable home theatre in your ear. The stereo output makes Sennheiser CX 180 the best headphone both when listening to music and when watching a movie.
To ensure that you enjoy your music to the fullest, you should always look for headphones that feel comfortable in your ears. Fortunately, Sennheiser CX 180 provides that comfort with perfectly fitting ear-tips. It comes with an extra pair of ear-tips in case the original ones are not the right size for your ear.
What We Don’t Like
Distortion at full volume
One downside of this earphone is the voice distortion that occurs once the volume is above 90%. Also, despite having one of the best bass outputs, some music genres like Hard Rock and Metallic do not sound great on them. I would recommend considering other options if you are a fan of such music.
The build quality of the connecting wire is not the best. It is thin such that it can easily break when pulled. You, therefore, need to handle it with care; other,wise you will be back at the store shopping for another pair after a few days. If you are one of those people who are always rough on their gadgets, then this earphone is not ideal for you.
The reason why some of us buy headsets is to make it easier while receiving calls. However, this earphone lacks that capability since it does not come with a built-in microphone and remote call receiver. As such, you will always have to unplug it whenever you want to make a call.
The Sennheiser CX 180 is a must-have for those looking for high-quality earphones at a budget price. But if you are looking for an alternate phone call receiver, then this is not for you. Lack of a microphone could be a disadvantage but sound quality and price attract more customers.
