My Beats X headphones broke (again) and having been through two previous pairs I decided it was time for a change. I know two people who have had problems as well with multiple units and despite the decent sound and practicality of the Apple chip inside the reliability appears to be an issue.
I wear headphones a lot, if you worked where I did you would understand why, and there are features I need above all else-
- A decent fit for working out
- Excellent sound quality
- Noise isolation (especially at work)
- Decent connectivity and decent battery life
After some researche I popped £82 down for the Sennheiser CX 6.00BT In-Ears and have been more than surprised by the performance. The sound quality is some distance above the Beats and the noise isolation is excellent.
Throw in an extremely comfortable wear and so far peerless connectivity, and I am sold on the offering for a better price than the Beats. Seems that jumping away from the Apple system can be beneficial in some circumstances. The AirPods are way off the radar for me until they offer noise isolation, better sound quality and, yes it’s true, a wire between the headphones themselves.
