Sennheiser CX275S is the 'NOKIA 3310' of headsets. A 2+ year review.
on 24 January 2017
I have owned this headset for more than 2 years. Music and podcast playback is much better than smartphone-bundled or cheaper retail headsets out there. The boosted lows for this little headset are spectacular. The microphone picks up the voice well in a noisy environment and is one of the reasons why more than 90% of my phone calls for the past couple of years were made using it.
Sennheiser CX275S was my daily go-to headset and started showing signs of wearing out well into the second year of use. This is about 2-3 times longer than usual considering I have used it for hours daily (including wearing it under a motorcycle helmet). I was out of the country when it finally broke and I contacted the local Sennheiser warranty department since it had 1 month of warranty left. After I filled in an quick online form and sent in my worn-out headset, Sennheiser sent me a new one for free!
Summary: This is an excellent headset for podcasts, music and phone calls. The microphone works well in noisy environments. Its durability combined with excellent warranty service from Sennheiser makes it an outstanding value for money.
