Sennheiser CX Plus Special Edition, True Wireless headphones with active noise reduction

Sennheiser presents the new CX Plus Special Edition Active Noise Canceling True Wireless Headphones. While these are fundamentally strictly identical to the Sennheiser CX Plus model marketed last September, they are evolving in form.

Thus, the surface of the True Wireless Sennheiser CX Plus Special Edition earphones feature a matte black surface, and not shiny like on the CX Plus, which gives them an even more exclusive look. For the rest, they are still wireless headphones integrating Active Noise Cancellation technology and the Transparent Hearing function to reconnect to its environment when necessary.
