Specifications, design and comfort
The Sennheiser CX180 is an in-ear canalphone-style headset, and has a frequency response range of 20-20,000Hz. It also has an impedance rating of 16Ohms and a sensitivity of 110dB. The headset does not have an in-line microphone and remote, and has a standard 1.2m cable. The sales package includes three sets of ear-tips in different sizes.
On the design front, the Sennheiser CX180 is simple and functional. Made entirely of plastic, the earphones have a glossy finish on the front and a dull finish on the back, which has been designed in such a way that it’s possible to grip each earphone between your finger and thumb for insertion and removal. It’s also incredibly light and comfortable, which ensures ease of use over long periods. The only flaw is the cable, which is thin, tangle-prone, and extremely susceptible to cable noise.
