Sennheiser MX W1 Wireless Headphones

 

I have lost quite a few headphones in Mumbai's crowded trains. Whenever I've been foolish enough to attempt getting in while listening to music, the cable's been pulled out by the surge of people. In such circumstances I've wondered if there's a...

The audio quality is good too, with a well-defined sound structure. The lows are pretty uniform, and aren't hampered by the rather clean highs. The frequency response is 19 - 20,000 Hz, while the impedance level is 32 ohms.

Sennheiser MX W1 Headphones Review - Intro

 

The Sennheiser MX W1 headphones are a set of wireless in-ears. They are the first pair of wireless in-ears we've reviewed. Since they use wireless technology, don't expect the best audio quality: sound has to be compressed in order to stream from your...

Wireless connectivity frees you from the strict constraints of cords. Portable. Lots of power adapters

Not particularly comfortable, not many customization options

The MX W1s seem to be more of a tech demo than an actual consumer item. It's the first marriage of Sennheiser and Kleer's wireless technology, and honestly, we can't see someone dropping $500 on these things. Not only do they look silly at best, but...

Sennheiser MX W1

 

Sennheiser's MX W1 earphones use Kleer wireless audio technology, blows away Bluetooth stereo, and cost a fortune.

Outstanding audio performance. Excellent wireless transmission. Well-packaged, good-looking components.

Prohibitively expensive. Low-end can suffer depending on the listener's ear shape.

The MX W1 earphones would have fared better on our rating scale if its price weren't sky-high. But we do appreciate that Sennheiser is incorporating Kleer's wireless audio technologywhich is vastly superior to Bluetoothinto a high-quality product.

The MX W1 headphones are a set of wireless in-ears from Sennheiser that are currently available for about $500. As a general rule, wireless technology means poor audio quality (the audio has to be compressed for wireless transferral); in-ear headphones...

Sennheiser MX W1 Wireless Headphones

 

Sennheiser has released its MX W1 Wireless Headphones, which means no more tangled cords for you - bonus!

The power of the MX W1 Wireless Headphones is Kleer. Kleer is Sennheiser’s audio transmission system with low latency and a crystal-clear signal without compression or shifting in your ear, so all you get is pure, uncompressed, full-bandwidth audio...

Instead of the usual Bluetooth connection, Sennheiser went the Kleer technology route with its CES 2008 debutant, the MX W1 wireless stereo earphones.

Mobile music is all very well, but wouldn't it be great to lose those tangled headphone wires? At last that dream becomes a reality in the shape of Sennheiser's brand-new headphone concept based on wireless audio technology from Kleer. This new...

Sennheiser MXW1

 

The chord-less MXW1 earphones transmit uncompressed audio over a robust 2.4GHz digital link to a transmitter that fits on your MP3 player with multi-receiver capabilities. It also has a dynamic transducer system and neodymium magnets to aid the audio,...

Cutting-edge wireless sound quality, and cheaper than hiring a band of musical leprechauns to follow you around, playing your favourite tunes on tiny fiddles… but only just. Sennheiser MXW1 is tagged with Sennheiser and headphones. Select a tag...

Phenomenal Sound, Whoosy Fit

 

This item has perhaps the best sound I\'ve heard in a set of earpieces, however, while I had them on, I felt that I couldn\'t move my head in fear of dropping the earpieces. I went to the Sennheiser website, and they acknowleged this very same issue,...
