Sennheiser is known for doing affordable earbuds consistently well. Now, with plenty of consumer headphones going wireless, the company has revealed the CX 6.00BT, a new set of budget Bluetooth in-ear headphones.

Priced at just $99.95 (€99), the company says the earphones deliver “clear, detailed sound with an enhanced bass response.” They’re extremely light, weighing 14g, and the two earbuds are connected by a cable you can toss around your neck. The earphones have the ability to pair with up to two devices simultaneously — so you can switch between your computer and your phone for example.

There’s an integrated microphone with noise cancellation, support for three-way calling, and voice prompts that notify you of the headphones’ battery status. The battery lasts six hours and features fast-charging via USB, capable of adding two hours of battery life in just ten minutes. It only takes 1.5 hours for the headphones to become fully charged. The buds are also compatible with Qualcomm AptX Low Latency which keeps sounds and music from videos and games in sync with what’s happening on screen.

The headphones are $99 and are the same price as my colleague Vlad Savov’s favorite budget earphones, the Beyerdynamic Byron BT. Sennheiser’s CX 6.00BT will be available from January and are currently being showcased at CES 2018.
