These earphones were launched massive 3 years ago, and from that time, these earphones are managed to be in the list of top 10 earphones under 1000 rupees which are a very big factor describing it’s quality.

I am using Sennheiser CX 180 street II earphones from past 6 months And today I am sharing my full experience and review. As I am a music lover, you can expect detailed information about these earphones. So, let’s start.

Sennheiser CX 180 Review – Really Powerful?

So friends, let’s get into our review. I divided my review into 3 parts:-

  • First one is – Physical overview
  • Second is – Comfortability and durability
  • Third one – Audio quality test


Sennheiser CX 180 street II review- Physical overview

Firstly, let’s talk about it’s in the box contents. When we open a box, firstly, we will get warranty details. Below that, we can see our main set of an earphone and along with that, we will get 2 extra set of earbuds, one set for small ears and one for large ears. A medium set will be attached along with earphones itself.

Going to physical details, the first thing I will think about it is- these are really a sports earphones. Stylish, compact and lightweight. Design which is created on earpieces are really unique and on the outer part, there will be a rubber kind of feel which creates a strong grip.

At the top, we will get earpieces itself, which are made up of high-quality plastic material and contains 2 color variants. Color Combination which they used is awesome. then we can see a very thin rounded wire buy have a rubberized touch on outer side which helps to leave it very flexible. And at the bottom side of earphones, there is a 3.5 mm headphone jack which is 90 degrees angled. This is a positive point because L shape 3.5 mm jack helps to fit best in pockets.


Sennheiser cx180 review- Comfortability and durability


Well, in comfortability department, I have to say that these earphones completely steals the show. CX180 earphones are really lightweight. After plugging in for more than 30 minutes, I forgot that I am using earphones as I can’t feel the weight. The wire is thin, and it is a rounded wire [not a flat cable], these earphones can be tangled easily. Normally, I have to untangle it every time before using them. Here, Sennheiser can’t make up nicely.

In terms of durability, here Sennheiser CX 180 street II earphones left behind, and the main reason behind this is- wire. Yes, the wire used in this is made p of high-quality material, but are very thin. One day, my earphones stuck in a door and little-stretched up. After then, When I check earphones, the cable got a cut and left earpiece stopped working. I have to say that if you re going to buy most durable earphones, then Sennheiser CX 180 street II may not be the right choice for you.


Sennheiser CX 180 Review – Audio quality test

Here, we came to the most important factor of any earphones- the audio quality. Audio quality matters a lot when we want to purchase anything in Audio instruments and accessories department. If anything does not have a good audio quality, then the real value of those earphones will be decreased up to some extent.

As it is a very important factor, we divided it further into three parts:-

  • Bass quality
  • Low, mids and highs
  • Noise Cancellation

Sennheiser CX 180 bass quality

In terms of bass, I can say that the bass produced and provided by these earphones are sufficient. Not too low, not too high. Yes, if you are party songs or EDM lover, then I must say that Sennheiser CX 180 Bass will not impress you too much as it will not have that punchy bass. It is adequate, but not that great I can say. If you are a bass lover, then I will recommend you to go for Boat Bassheads 225 earphones.

Lows, mids, and Highs

Here, Sennheiser CX 180 tops the list. All three things lows, mids, and highs are perfect! You can hear the background voice as well as every string. The audio clarity in these earphones is awesome. If you usually listen to some romantic, sad or vocal songs, then these earphones are perfect for you. Treble is perfect and it will not give pain to your ears.

Noise cancellation

Noise cancellation is nice with these earphones. When you listen to music a medium volume, you will not get disturbed by any external sound or noise. Earpieces will set in your ears perfectly and earbuds flexibility helps to pack your ears in an efficient way.


Sennheiser CX 180 review – My Final Verdict

I am using it for past 6 months as a daily driver. So, after sharing my complete experience and doing a complete Sennheiser CX 180 Street II review, there s my verdict:-

  • If you want an earphone which is compact, stylish and provides you clear sound, then yes, you must go for these earphones.
  • But if you want earphones which should be durable and use it for more than 1 year, as well as want a high bass, then there are many other options available in the market for you my friend, and one of them is Boat bassheads 225.

The only drawback I found in these earphones is that very thin wire. The wire can be tangled easily and screwed up your overall audio experience. But other than that, especially in an audio quality department, it performed very well which make it a nice deal.

Well, as Sennheiser CX 180 price is only 799rs. [12$], I can say that you will surely check out these earphones.
