As the name suggests, the all-new Sennheiser CX Plus are beefed-up versions of the Sennheiser CX True Wireless, which launched four months ago. The big difference is the introduction of active noise cancellation (or ‘ANC’ for short) in the new pair.
The total battery life is 24 hours (including charging up from the carry case), which equals the standard AirPods and Sony XM4.
There’s the same TrueResponse transducer, as found in the original CX. We found the CX a little lacking in detail compared to the class leaders at their price point, so hopefully the Plus are more competitive on that front.

Sennheiser CX Plus
Here is yet another entrant into the rather crowded true wireless earbuds space. Budge up everybody, the Sennheiser CX Plus are coming through.
This partners with a mode called Transparent Hearing, which is basically like the transparency mode as seen on other true wireless earbuds (like the AirPods Pro). It lets in outside sounds, so you can hear your surroundings and have a chat without taking the earbuds out. (The Sony WF-1000XM4 have a similar feature too.)
