It must be tough writing the PR on headphones. I mean what can you say about them really? Here is what I think about the CX 6 Travel from Sennheiser:
- They look great.
- They work on a plane as well as any other device you care to mention.
- They are adjustable to the size of your ear canal.
- As they are ear canal headphones they keep the noise out and they stop the sounds leaking out.
Now this is what the PR people have to say about them:
- The best Sennheiser sound has been combined with a high degree of passive attenuation in a compact size, guaranteeing your listening enjoyment on planes and trains without enduring chatty seat-mates, squeaky brakes or the din of a jet engine.
- The ear-canal headphone is outfitted with a 1/8″ jack for connection to mobile multimedia players and is perfectly mated with in-flight entertainment systems via the double mono adapter.
- Being a real globetrotter, the CX 6 Travel comes loaded with a double mono adapter, a cable clip, a hard-shell transport case and adapter rings in S, M and L. This means the CX 6 Travel can be perfectly customized to the anatomy of your auditory canal, keeping distracting noise at arm’s length.
“You can fit the CX 6 Travel in even the smallest of travel bags”, explained Eric Palonen, product manager for Sennheiser’s consumer electronics division. “It’s a genuine, high-end, ear-canal headphone with a powerful bass and detailed sound reproduction. For regular travelers, the CX 6 Travel is an ideal companion.”
Guess that is why I am not writing PR then. I have to say though that the Sennheiser headphones that I have got are really good, so if you are after something to keep that jet engine sound at bay then you could do a lot worse than take a look at these when they become available in March.
