If you find yourself traveling a lot, yet not wanting to get headphones that will be hard to carry with you – Sennheiser CXC 700 is the best choice then.

They aren’t only compact and good looking, but they offer a great audio sound quality, will protect your ears from ambient noise & allow you to enjoy music in peace, and they’ll never make your ears hurt.

For the price they sell for, it’s a great deal for the value these headphones offer.

Sennheiser is one of the leading brands that is taking the in-ear headphones to another level.

With CXC 700, Sennheiser has taken travel headphones to another level by introducing ear-canal with a noise Gard digital technology to offer the best noise cancellation for in-ear headphones possible.

In this article, find out more about these in-ear headphones, and why exactly they’re a good choice for any traveler.

Design and Build Quality

Sennheiser CXC 700 look really modern and have a futuristic look which is combined with minimalistic yet stylish design.

In combination with a great design, these in-ear headphones feature a robust plastic which feels great in hands, and yet there’s also a sleek rubber material that feels like leather and just adds that premium feeling to the headphones itself.

Even though Sennheiser CXC 700 come in only one color which is black, I believe that’s the best color they could come in since it completes the whole design so well.

Once these headphones are in ears, they feel really lightweight and in my case, they fit so well. Even though they’re made for traveling, you could even run with these headphones and wouldn’t have them falling out.

They weigh about 9 ounces which is the reason they feel so light in ears. On the other hand, the cable is decently sized, so it’s not too long but it’s not too short.

Sound Quality and Features

Sennheiser CXC 700 in-ear headphones feature a very acoustic-based sound system for optimized audio performance. While this might not be ideal for someone who’s into music with a lot of basses, it’s ideal for people who are into acoustic sounds, chill music, and would want to take the advantage of these headphones as a communication device.

Thanks to the passive attenuation of ambient noise, along with Noise Gard digital noise cancellation, CXC 700 can cancel ambient sounds in 3 different modes.

That’s what makes these headphones perfect for flights, to cancel out the unwanted loud noises from the airplane engine, but they’re also very efficient in traffic, or just places where a crowd of people gathers.

What is in The Box?

Once you make your purchase and receive Sennheiser CXC 700 box, beside the headphones you’ll receive Sennheiser travel bag, 3 x silicone ear buds, and 3 x conversion adapters to connect these headphones to almost any device.
