Model: CX 475
Sennhesier is a house hold name everyone is familiar with where personal audio is concerned, be it for portable audio device and phones or microphones and headsets for use with computers or production facilities and even aviation. Today we’ll be focusing on something a bit more down to Earth in the shape of the CX475 earphones.
The CX475 are budget earphones aiming to get into as many ears as possible with their lowly price-tag. Although official RRP is in the region of £40, they can be had for a bargain price of £20 pretty much everywhere. For your £20 you get the bare minimum, although it’s clear these are aimed as a back-up pair of headphones or as someone’s first foray into the branded earphone market.
- Frequency Response: 17-23,000 Hz
- Impedance: 16 Ohms
- Sensitivity: 120dB
- Cable length: 1.2m
- Warranty: 2 years
So for £20 there really isn’t much wrong with the package on a first look. You get two years warranty from a reputable brand and tech specs that are as expected for this end of the market. In addition to the earphones themselves, there are also three sets of inter-changeable earbuds for different sized ear canals.
Let’s have a look at the CX475 itself and does the £20 cost shine through?
