Sennheiser MX W1
Sennheiser is separating itself from the relative glut of wireless earphones today with the introduction of the MX W1, a new set it claims produce audio far cleaner than most models. Instead of using Bluetooth, which both requires a compressed sound and is susceptible to cordless phones and Wi-Fi, the technology uses a special digital broadcast system developed by Cupertino, California-based Kleer. The improvement provides both more faithful audio and better battery life, Sennheiser says. Compared to Bluetooth, the MX W1's technology consumes between five and ten times less power.
