The new line of sports performance headphones will be presented at the Sennheiser booth (#2333) and will be available for sale at the adidas merchandising booth (#1940). This exciting new line is comprised of various wearing styles from in-ear to neckband. Each of these models is highly regarded for their durability and exceptional sound quality; In January, the CX 680 in-ear sports performance headphone won the prestigious Innovations Award at the 2010 CES Convention in Las Vegas.
The Sennheiser/adidas sports performance headphones are ideal not only for marathons, but for the toughest training sessions. For example, their sturdy and hardwearing materials make the earphones insensitive to strong vibrations. They can also withstand cold and moisture: their fibre-reinforced cable still remains soft and flexible even at temperatures below freezing. A completely new protection system against moisture not only effectively repels sweat, but also protects the internal components of the earphones against rainwater. After a training session, the earphones can simply be rinsed off under the tap. In all of the models, powerful and robust dynamic Sennheiser engineered loudspeaker systems guarantee excellent, motivating and high quality sound. The volume can be adjusted at any time using the volume control integrated into the cable.
Sennheiser has been very successful with sports headphones in the consumer electronics market for many years. The Sennheiser/adidas sports performance headphones mark the beginning of a cooperation in which Sennheiser and adidas are combining the very best of the sports and audio worlds, bringing even greater focus on the sports market. The Sennheiser name is synonymous throughout the world with top-quality audio products, while adidas is one of the leading brands in the sporting goods sector.
