Top sound meets top design: elegant earphones from Sennheiser for high-quality music enjoyment on the move
The CX 980, MX 980 and OMX 980 earphones from Sennheiser will appeal to music fans not only with their top-quality sound but also with their elegant design. High-grade metal and a finely crafted finish provide these high-end earphones with a touch of class.
“Electronic devices for mobile applications have to meet increasingly demanding requirements – and that also applies to headphones. They are expected to provide top-quality sound on the move and at the same time have an excellent finish quality," explained Maurice Quarré, head of Product Management Consumer at Sennheiser. “The CX 980, MX 980 and OMX 980 combine these demands in an excellent manner." Dynamic loudspeaker systems with powerful Neodymium magnets guarantee a lifelike sound image with a highly detailed resolution. Fine metal elements and a coolly elegant design give the earphones a luxurious appearance.

Even more wearing comfort : the OMX 980
Detailed, balanced sound of the same high quality is provided by the OMX 980. The special feature of this model is its particularly secure fit and its additional wearing comfort. Flexible earhooks ensure that the OMX 980 adapts perfectly to the size and shape of the ear. High-quality metal components provide additional stability for the clever design.
Great attention has also been paid to the small extras of the new earphones. In all three models, the volume can be adjusted easily and conveniently by a volume control integrated into the cable. A small but particularly useful innovation is the variable jack plug. It can be fitted either straight or at a 90-degree angle to ensure optimum connection of the headphones to an audio source. A metal clip with a matching design allows the headphones to be attached to the user’s clothing. Useful travelling accessories such as an aircraft adapter and an elegant carrying pouch put the finishing touches to these highly attractive earphones.
