Sennheiser has announced the launch of a brand new premium headset, the CX 890i. Bringing together renowned Sennheiser technology, innovative materials and revolutionary design, the new CX 890i ear-canal headset features a glass-like finish with metal detailing to create a distinctive, minimalistic style. The headset comes in two colour variants – black and white – with a matching cable for each colour. To make sure that the headphones are ready for use at any time, they have been fitted with a 3.5mm stereo jack, and the nominal impedance has been reduced for optimum connection to mobile players. "The new Sennheiser CX 890i earphones are a perfect combination of top-quality sound and sophisticated design," explained Dominic Feeney Product Manager at Sennheiser UK. "They deliver sound to the renowned Sennheiser quality standards. High-performance dynamic transducers produce a true-to-nature sound with a highly detailed resolution. "The glassy material creates an unusually smooth surface and domed appearance. Ear adapters in various sizes and fitting colours are also provided with the headset." But it doesn't just stop with good looks. The CX 890i combines the signature Sennheiser sound with a frequency response between 17 and 23,000 hertz, plus an integrated smart remote control and microphone – especially for iPad, iPhone and iPod users. This can be used not only to adjust the volume and select tracks, but also to take phone calls and activate the voice control or personal assistant features. Simultaneously, outstanding passive noise attenuation guarantees undisturbed listening whatever your environment. The new CX 890i earphones are available from September through selected Sennheiser sales partners including Dixon and HMV at an RRP of £119.99.
