Then what is so different in between Sennheiser HD1 In-Ear vs CX 7.00BT which can make purchases ?
Yes, so coming to the last section making a call on buying one of them, nothing is much difference with only few grams of weight difference (see table above)
So the major difference is in the styling of two headphones,
HD1 in-ear features soft stitched sheepskin nappa leather neckband offering all-day listening comfort. Now this is where the style comes into picture, persons who likes to have stitch pattern seen as a style quotient may choose these ones.
Another difference is again in the ear-tip style, I have specifically highlighted the same in the picture at the beginning of this post, Shape of CX 7.0BT is like a barrel whereas HD1 in-ear shapes similar to a dumbbell !
CX 7.0BT has rectangular logo at the end of earbuds, as against round shape for the HD1 in-ear.
So call is yours, my opinion is look at the style and buy any one of them.
