A recent trend with most audio accessory and smartphone makers is to launch affordable truly wireless earphones and while Sennheiser does have it in its portfolio, the award-winning truly wireless device is not exactly cheap. However, that’s not the case with their recently introduced wireless in-ear earphones. Today, we take a look at the CX 150BT.
The CX 150BT has a minimalistic design and despite the glossy black finish, the earphones look good. However, the wire that connects both ends of the earbuds is underwhelming. Nevertheless, the CX 150BT comes with in-line controls that consist of a power/action button and volume +/- keys. The keys are well-spaced out and are big enough to avoid accidental presses. The same three buttons can also be used to skip or fast forward a song, accept/reject or mute a call, and so on. Adjacent to the controls is the USB Type-C port that can be used for charging. While the CX 150BT has a decent build quality, it doesn’t come with an IP rating to know its actual water and dust resistance but it’s safe to assume the CX 150BT can last your sweaty workout! In terms of fit, the buds are small that fit in nicely and offer good sound isolation. Sennheiser also offers XS/S/M/L ear tips for a perfect fit. That said, considering CX 150BT’s travel-friendly design and weight, we dislike the fact that it does not come with a travel pouch. Also, there’s no magnetic clasp at the rear-end of the buds that can automatically turn off the device when not in use, thus saving battery life.
