PC 350 headset
Whether battling evil aliens or fighting guerilla warfare, a fraction of a frame separates winners from the rest. Hearing and being heard can make or break a game.
The new PC 350 headset from Sennheiser Communications adds a never before experienced dimension of reality to gaming with the most accurate sound positioning and sound quality available on the market. Sound perception is so precise you literally feel like you’re in the game.
A circum aural, closed type headset, the PC 350 shuts out disturbing noises from your environment. That combined with the special shaping of the frequency response improves your ability to detect where a sound comes from. This helps significantly increase your reaction time, giving you a built in advantage over the competition.
Ear Canal earphones
Your enjoyment of sound when you’re out and about can often be spoilt by distracting ambient noise and poor bass reproduction. This is the reason why more and more music enthusiasts are turning to ear canal headphones. They don’t just screen you from external noise, they also sound great thanks to their position in the ear canal. Audio specialist Sennheiser is now launching five new ear canal headphones to go alongside its successful CX 300 model. Their full sound and fantastic colours make them an experience both your ears and eyes will enjoy.
The new products are the CX 400, CX 500, CX 55 Street and CX 95 Style ear canal headphones, as well as the CXL 400 lanyard earphones supplementing Sennheiser’s Classic, Street and Style ranges. Their easily exchangeable adapter rings ensure that all the models are a perfect fit for your ear canal and the newly developed cords are evenless sensitive to handling noise.
The Classic line: the very best sound and practical features too
The CX 400 gives the listener an extremely balanced sound. Its short cord makes this ear canal headphone perfect for mobile phones and MP3players with remote controls or microphones. The 1m extension cable is used if you want to keep the player in your trouser pocket. It comes with a practical pouch, a cord take-in device, ear adapters anda cable clip.
The CXL 400 lanyard version with its strap for a mobile phone or MP3 player doesn’t just sound fantastic, it’s very safe too: the safety catch opens if too much strain is placed on it, releasing the lanyard from your neck. Both the CXL 400 and CX 400 come in high gloss black, high gloss white, high gloss silver, Bordeaux red and aqua, with a pouch and ear adapters.
The CX 500 is the new top-of-the-range model in the Classic line and comes in high gloss black, high gloss white and titanium. It stands out for having a wider frequency response and special ear adapters, which give the ear canal phones an even better fit. It comes with a pouch, cable clip, cord take-in device and volume adjuster on the cord.
