Sennheiser, who despite tough competition and the introduction of approximately 18 new headphone brands into the Australian market in 2010 is still showing their competition how premium headphones should be made.
The #1 selling headphone brand in Australia Sennheiser whose products are distributed by Syntec, has used the CES Show in Las Vegas to introduce several new models which will be on sale in Australia later this year.
Among the new models introduced are the Sennheiser MM 550 Travel headphones which come with
NoiseGard 2.0 noise-cancelling technology that is used to block out unwanted sounds.

These headphones also come with a TalkThrough feature that activates a built-in microphone so that you can talk to the person next to you without taking off your headphones.
The new models are also wireless and have stereo Bluetooth, which means you can use the buttons on the earpieces to control your music or even take calls if you have them paired with a smart phone.
One of the new features is called SRS Wow HD, which Sennheiser claims deliver “wider, taller sound.”
The German Company has also introduced new CXC 700 ear-canal headphones that incorporate their new NoiseGard digital system technology.
The CXC 700 headphones features three digital pre-sets tweaked in such a way they enable a quiet, pristine listening experience regardless of their external environment.
Like other Sennheiser travel headphones, this model too will act as a traditional headphone once its batteries run out.
The company claimed that the NoiseGard/digital system is the next evolution of its patented NoiseGard technology, providing users with built-in pre-sets designed to cancel out specific ranges of frequencies, such as that of engine noise, an air conditioner or the din of an airport.
Any one of the three noise-cancelling profiles can be selected to adapt NoiseGard to the current surroundings. In one mode, the headphone absorbs low-frequency noise in particular (100 to 400 Hertz), such as engine noise from trains, buses or small passenger planes. In the second mode, noises in the medium frequency range (400 to 3,000 Hertz) caused from systems such as air-conditioning are cancelled. Mode 3 has a particularly wide frequency range (100 to 3,000 Hertz), and combines the noise-cancelling effect in the medium and low-frequency ranges. This allows noises from airports, railway stations or underground stations to be effectively suppressed. Users can choose these modes accordingly based on the location they are in.
