Let’s face it. When we put on earphones and hit the gym or go for a run, we don’t need the best sound quality, but a secure and comfortable fit instead. That is what the Sennheiser CX Sport is all about.

These dashing bluetooth wireless earphones are made for active people who run, go to the gym or play sports. That’s why the earphones are super lightweight at 15g, and are sweat and splash resistant to endure your buckets of sweat during CrossFit sessions. The best part of it all is the ergonomic fins that keep the earbud comfortably secure.
The CX Sport fits everyone – it comes with three fin sizes and four sizes of ear adapters (XS, S, M, L). The tight but comfortable fit also helps you block out ambient noise so you can pay 110% attention to your workout or sport.
Another awesome feature of the Sennheiser CX Sport is its multi-connection capability that lets you pair the earphones via Bluetooth 4.2 with two devices at the same time so you and your gym buddy can slay those reps in sync. With Qualcomm apt-X and apt-X Low Latency compatibility to boot, you’re guaranteed uncompromised Hi-Fi sound without tangled cables.
The six-hour battery life might not sound impressive, but that can last you for up to three full gym sessions and you can quickly charge it via USB in only ten minutes for an extra hour of playback. Charging the earphones fully only takes 90 minutes.
As with many sporty headphones and earphones, the Sennheiser CX Sport is visually striking, boasting dashing yellow fins and a pearlescent logo on the back of each aluminium housing.
If you play music directly from your phone’s music library or Tidal, you should download CapTune from the App Store or Google Play, Sennheiser’s dedicated smartphone app. The app lets you customise playback with a detailed EQ control module to suit your listening preference. As great as this sounds, we wish CapTune works with the more commonly-used Apple Music and Spotify.
