Sennheiser has just introduced a slew of new headphones and headsets, including the company's first consumer ear-canal headphones, the CX 300 (seen at right). Sennheiser's aiming these squarly at the iPod and other portable media player market, hoping to find users a little dissatisfied with the pre-packaged options (and really, who isn't?). Look for them to be available this month at a list price of $49.95. Also announced is the considerably more expensive BW900 Bluetooth headset, retailing for a hefty $329.95. For that price you get some of Sennheiser's trademark "Adaptive Intelligence", which promises sound quality that is "dramatically superior" for both you and the person you're talking to. Sennheiser also says you should get clear reception up to 300 feet from the host device and the hot-swap battery lets you change a battery without losing a connection. Lastly, the company has brought out a trio of more convetional phones, the DJ-styled Sennheiser HD 205, which weigh just 7.3 ounces and retail for $59.95, and the open-back models, HD415 and HD435, running $59.95 and $69.95 respectively.
