SENNHEISER CX 6.00BT

Design & Construction

The Sennheiser CX 6.00BT is successor to the CX 7.00BT, neckband style in-ear headphone. Gone is the stiff neckband, you now get the signature black and blue wire that can be shortened to fit. On the left side of the neckband there is the (Top-Bottom): the Vol + button, the Multi-function button, Vol - button and the LED status indicator. The Multi-function button will allow users to power on/off the device and skip forward/back with a double press and triple press. A single press will allow for answering/ending a call or play/pause. The left side inline remote bears the Sennheiser logo while the right bears the 'SENNHEISER' words. Pressing once on the power button allows users to check the battery life of the device when no audio is playing. The Micro-USB port lies on the left inline remote under a flap. I tested the mic on these to take calls and it proves to work well. The caller on the other end didn't know I had used the mic on these to communicate. There are also different size of buds for one to find the best fit. When having the earbuds around your neck, you won't notice that due to its light weight. Having a range of colours will allow consumers to express themselves, but sadly, Sennheiser only sell these in black with blue accents. This doesn't give consumers of the mass population a chance to express themselves. The earbuds themselves bear the Sennheiser logo in chrome while the wires are black in colour. There isn't a magnetic buds feature to keep the buds neat on your body when you are not using them. Hence, they do hang down awkwardly on your upper body. 

Sound Quality

If you love a clear sound signature, then look no further. From my in-house test, the drivers do a great job in reproducing the mids and highs clearly. The bass can be a little thin at times but it does give a satisfying thump in your ear. There are small port underside each earbuds which I believe to be the bass ports. This helps enhance the quality of the bass. It works well with all genres but for tracks that has a lot of deep bass, it will only satisfy bass lovers at about 90% volume.

Connectivity & Portability

It connects via Bluetooth Ver 4.2 and fitted with AptX Audio Codec; meant for providing clearer wireless transmission. NFC is not available for this model but Bluetooth pairing was still dead simple. It comes with a hard carry case which helps to protect it from unwanted scratches. Its battery life rates at a maximum of 6 hours but charges up fully in 1.5 hours.
