These new Sennheiser headphones are getting pretty crazy. Touch panel ear pieces, collapsing designs, and wireless connectivity round up some of the features on new models debuting at CES this week.
The company is out to utilize the latest wireless technologies and advanced designs, updating their MOMENTUM line and launching an all new SPORTS headphone. There's plenty to drool over, just keep in mind only the sports model is water resistant.
Sennheiser's next MOMENTUM
The launch of Sennheiser’s MOMENTUM line feature the same kind of design and performance with noise cancellation, but now you can get both the on-ear and over-ear wirelessly. And for even better travel practicality, they now have folding headband designs.
The new URBANITE XL WIRELESS is more or less the marvel of the bunch. It’s geared towards deep bass, clear trebels, and classy technology. This design features a touch panel on the right ear cup that allows you to control volume, playback music, and make calls (via optional inline mic) by tapping and sliding your finder. Also wireless, it can pair with up to eight devices.

Sennheiser is also making strides in wireless audio for the home as well. Their new RS line sets to deliver interference-free sound and highly reliable connectivity with excellent range. There are four models in the RS line, each geared for different experiences. The RS 165 adds bass boost, the RS 175 gives you virtual surround and dynamic bass for home entertainment, and the RS 185 offers manual input level control with a unique open design. The RS 195 has an even more refined purpose however. It can help address specific hearing needs with dedicated modes to increase speech intelligibility and more.
The most flexible line though is their new SPORTS headphone range. Destined to be found on the most active people, this line is made to move with you and resist wind and water. The design is based on the latest scientific research into the impact of extreme movement on sound quality, comfort and fit. The MX and PMX 686 models feature open acoustics built for outdoor sports and running, while the CX and OCX 686 models serve the indoors, and can help block out noisy gym grunts during your workout.
