Sennheiser Earphones: Music to the Ears
| by Laiq Qureshi
Premium audio brand Sennheiser has evidently come to realize that India is a big market, and you can now look forward to seeing its products in stores across the country. Though sales is currently limited to Class A cities, the company is all set to invest money to increase visibility in smaller cities as well.
I have to admit the visibility hasn’t been great so far. Currently, I have seen only 'Imagine' (the Apple stores) stocking Sennheiser in Mumbai, but the company claims this was only the first step. The next step, they say, would be to establish outlets in major malls and hypermarkets.
If you're interested in MP3 players and PMPs, Sennheiser's new line of Sports and Style earphones is worth a look. I called some in for review, and here are my observations.
What I like about this product is that it exudes a sturdy build quality. The finish of the 90 VC will make you want to grab one for yourself. One problem I have had with clip-ons is that they add unnecessary stain on your ears, making it unbearable after a while. This may be true only for certain ears (mine, certainly) but the lightweight OMX 90 VC is easy on the ears – in every way.
Another feature that grabbed my attention was the simple volume control mechanism: just pull the cylindrical black pen-like structure and it reduces the volume, so you don’t need to go at your MP3 player every time you need to talk to someone.
Those looking for a cheaper option could try the Cresyn in-ear earphones, which retail for about Rs 1,000.
