Sennheiser MX686G overview

  • 1Description

Intended for Android mobile devices, the Sennheiser MX 686G SPORTS In-Ear Headphones are designed to be durable and resistant to sweat, which makes them suitable for active on-the-go lifestyles and working out at the gym. The headphones deliver a full range frequency response of 18 to 20,000 Hz into a 30 ohm load. They feature an inline remote control with an omnidirectional microphone for managing media and making calls on most smartphones (including Android, Windows Mobile, and Blackberry). The Para-aramid-reinforced cable offers strength and durability with an oval design that helps reduce both tangles and cable noise.

    Sennheiser MX686G reviews

    MX 686G SPORTS In-Ear Headphones (Android) is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Couldn't get them back in the box fast enough Yikes. I had high hopes for these - designed for sports/sweat, fins to keep the buds in place, a flat cord and cord clip to help with cord noise, and an Android remote WITH working volume buttons. Seemed like the perfect purchase for me. Unfortunately, these sounded terrible. Whether it was heavy metal or classic rock, it sounded like my 320Kbps MP3s were at 64. Everything sounded like it was under water. Horrible sound, and too much bass on softer tracks like Eagles songs. I expected more from Sennheiser. While I'm now having issues with the right bud on my Audio Technica CKX5is, they sound much, much better at a comparable price point. Also, despite claiming the remote works with Android phones, including LG, the center 'play' button did not work with my LG G2. So no play, skip tracks, or voice assistant features would work. The volume buttons worked fine - I wish more manufacturers adopted those buttons for Android devices, but it's useless if I can't also play songs from the remote.
