Sennheiser has launched the latest additions to their CX and Momentum lineup, as well as the newest Urbanite and Urbanite XL line of headphones. All of these come in an “I” or “G” version specially designed for Apple iPhone or Samsung Galaxy smartphones.
CX In-Ear Headphones
A total of four CX in-ears have been debuted: the CX 1.00 and CX 2.00 (which the company dubbed as good), and the CX 3.00 and CX 5.00 (dubbed as better).
“The New CX range distils Sennheiser’s leadership in headphones into lightweight, portable designs that offer great value, with incredible performance,” said Christian Ern, director of product management consumer of Sennheiser Communications. “Quality portable audio is becoming increasingly universal – particularly with the impressive market development of smartphones and tablets. Expectations are shifting, and people are expecting more from their music. Building on Sennheiser’s seven decades of experience in delivering excellent sound, the CX series anticipates this demand. The needs of mobile users are met through quality headsets with integrated mics and inline remotes for both Apple and Samsung Galaxy devices. There’s no need [to] compromise with the music you love.”
The CX 1.00 and CX 2.00 are both fitted with Sennheiser’s signature acoustics, offering you excellent value in a simple yet stylish form. Both deliver excellent overall sound quality and impressive bass, with the only difference being the inline 3-button remote with integrated mic on the CX 2.00’s cable. Both sets come in black or white.
“We have created an all new acoustic design built around a new driver technology that ensures excellent clarity across the frequency range. Particular attention has been paid to high frequencies for a smooth, accurate reproduction without any of the harshness that afflicts lesser ear canal headphones. At the same time all CX headphones serve up powerful yet clearly defined bass that brings music to life while still maintaining great clarity in the mids. With the new CX models, we have raised the bar for ear canal headphones across the range.”
The CX 1.00 sells for PHP 2,259 and the CX 2.00 is tagged at PHP 2,790, with both sets shipping with four sizes of ear sleeves. Meanwhile, the CX 3.00 and CX 5.00 will be packaged with a hard carry case and will be released in Asia soon.
This in-ear is the newest addition to the Momentum range of over-ear and on-ear headphones. Made from high quality materials, it features a form factor that delivers the familiar Momentum sound experience.
“Answering the needs of those who refuse to make compromises, the Momentum headphone series represents the ultimate fusion of style and substance,” said Charles Cha, product manager at Sennheiser Consumer Electronics. “We are now excited to announce a new member of the family, the Momentum In-Ear, which brings the same level of passion and innovation to ear-canal phones, delivering the ultimate portable Momentum experience.”

“Sennheiser Urbanite headphones are for the generation of millennials who know more and demand more. They love their tunes heavy and love to look good, but are smart consumers who won’t compromise on quality. They want bass but want it done right. The Sennheiser Urbanite is answering these demands,” said Tim Voelker, director sales and marketing consumer at Sennheiser Communications A/S. “We’re bringing something fresh and new that will finally meet the expectations of this tough audience, and will be building the buzz for the Urbanite range through an exciting social media campaign this autumn under the headline ‘Let your ears be loved’.”
