  • 1Description

Intended for Android mobile devices, the Sennheiser CX 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 20 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. The headphones feature SteriTouch antimicrobial ear adapters in three internchangeable sizes (S/M/L) to provide a sealed in-ear design for improved blocking of outside noise. They also come with a cable clip for attaching to clothing as well as a convenient storage pouch.

    Sennheiser CX686G reviews

    CX 686G SPORTS In-Ear Headphones (Android) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor quality strain relief To sum it up, it is a good IEM for active individuals. I use it when I'm jogging. It fits snug and the adjustable stabilizer helps tremendously. However, one major issue; strain relief. Mine failed twice already; 1st time less than six month from new; and second time, slightly over a year. Same exact symptom; it fails right where the straing relief end on the 3.5mm connector. It seems that the designer overlooked the fact that that's the archilles heel for this ear phone. Not sure why they don't fix this issue. I've made comment on the manufacturer website but even after a year later, still received the one that had the same problem. Until this issue is addressed, I cannot recommend it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from You don't need to buy something more expensive.... I am a big heavy metal fan and I really enjoy when I listen the perfect combination between highs and lows. I am very happy with this headphones, since they are honest with the sound. The sound is crystal clear and I don't need more than that. Also, they are very comfortable for running and since they are very well designed and the microphone is 'transparent' regard to sound quality, which is great. The volumen control is soft and precise. No complaints so far.
