CES 2010 Show - Top quality sound, excellent wearing comfort and insensitivity towards external influences such as water, sweat and cold. These are the features that characterize the new range of sports earphones from Sennheiser and Adidas. These two companies are launching their new cooperation with a total of four earphone models that have been specially designed for sports applications. In all of the models, powerful and robust dynamic loudspeaker systems guarantee excellent, motivating sound. The volume can be adjusted using the volume control integrated into the cable. Their sturdy and hard-wearing materials mean that the earphones are insensitive to vibration and even the toughest use.

The fiber-reinforced cables still remain flexible at temperatures as low as minus 10 degrees. These true sports companions are also unaffected by external influences: a completely new protection system against moisture not only effectively repels sweat but also protects the internal components of the earphones against rain water. After a workout, the earphones can simply be rinsed off under the tap. For the Sennheiser MX 680 stereo earphones, Sennheiser's patent-pending EarFin holding system ensures, that the ear pieces fit securely and comfortably in the ear. A simple twist fixes the innovative “fin” to the outer ear. Ear adapters and various fin sizes are included to make sure that the earphones fit any ear size.

The premium-quality Sennheiser CX 680 ear canal earphones are also fitted with the new EarFin system and come with various ear adapters. The ear canal phones fit securely and comfortably and are ideal for sportsmen and women who want to concentrate on their music while working out: the ear pieces offer excellent insulation against external noise. Adjustable ear clips and a special ear fitting system with three different adapters ensure that the Sennheiser OMX 680 also fits securely during even the most gruelling training sessions. The ear clips are made of a flexible material and offer optimum wearing comfort.

The Sennheiser PMX 680 guarantees a particularly secure fit with its sturdy and ergonomically designed neck band. The single-sided cable also offers plenty of freedom of movement while jogging or working out. An additional feature is the reflective strip on the neck band for extra safety in the dark. The new sports headphones will be dispatched to Sennheiser sales partners and adidas Sport Performance stores from January 2010.

Sennheiser earphone accessories
Each Sennheiser earphone model comes with tried-and-tested accessories. An extension cable allows the standard-length cable to be extended at any time - depending on whether the audio source is in a trouser pocket or clipped to the arm. To ensure that the cable never gets in the way during the most energetic workouts, it can be fixed to the clothing by a handy cable clip. When the training session is over, the sports earphones can simply be packed away in the carrying pouch provided.
