Sennheiser CX 400BT True Wireless – for those of you who think Momentum is too expensive

The completely wireless earbuds CX 400BT True Wireless will provide much of the same quality as the Momentum siblings, but at a lower price.

The very best wireless earbuds on the market – according to myself – are Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2. Excellent sound quality, tailored operation and EQ function to adjust the sound, as well as long playing time of 7 hours in the earplugs themselves. 20 hours extra playing time with the charging case. And also with active noise reduction, which comes in handy. But the price of over 3,000 kroner is a deterrent for many. Which is why Sennheiser is now launching the cheaper – but almost as good according to the manufacturer – CX 400BT True Wireless.

CX 400BT True Wireless – functions

Sennheiser lets almost all the technology from the more expensive Momentum siblings drip onto the cheaper model. User-adjustable control buttons, active noise reduction, voice control for those who like it, and support for better audio over Bluetooth with aptX and AAC audio codecs.

The 7mm large speaker elements are also the same as in the more expensive Momentum model.

Bluetooth 5.1 ensures the best range and connectivity to two devices simultaneously.

We already have a pair on their way to review.

Headphones for music lovers

They look the same, but the sound of the latest Sennheiser headphones is better than ever.

A dream for both studio and pleasure

The MM-500 has been developed by and for studio engineers, to reveal the full substance of a recording. Something that also provides pure enjoyment for "ordinary people".

Even more utopian?

Focal has updated the uncompromising Utopia headphones. But is it really possible to improve them even further?

A different kind of Sound Blaster

The Creative Sound Blaster X5 isn't just a sound card for the gaming community. It's also a nice little DAC, even if it does have a few oddities.

Goddamn, that's a lot of power.

Burson's most powerful headphone amp is damn good, and with as much power as you could want. And it's got subwoofer output!
