Sennheiser are launching a wireless earphone with a difference. Many people find it difficult to clearly understand conversations in noisy environments, such as in a busy restaurant or on a loud street. Conversation Clear Plus earbuds feature advanced speech enhancement technology that’s claimed to let your conversation take centre stage in every interaction.

Utilising Sonova chip technology, conversations and calls are enhanced thanks to the Sennheiser Automatic Scene Detection feature, which analyses the noise level of a user’s environment and matches the speech enhancement level to their surroundings.

Integrated into the compact and modern earbuds, Automatic Scene Detection ensures the clearest speech in challenging environments, be it in person or on the phone. In concert with Active Noise Cancellation, Conversation Clear Plus works dynamically to block distracting noises and improve the clarity of conversations for every level of background noise.

Conversation Clear Plus claims to let you choose how much background noise you want to hear. Active Noise Cancellation blocks out distractions, while the Ambient Awareness mode enables more connection with the outside environment when desired.

Set-up and operation
With step-by-step guidance in the companion app, getting started with Conversation Clear Plus is said to be easy. In combination with the Conversation Clear Plus app, the earbuds deliver “an intuitive, hassle-free user experience for tailoring listening preferences”.

Dedicated settings for three different listening scenarios make personalising the audio experience effortless. The ‘Relax’ listening scenario lets sound enthusiasts customise the amount of background noise they want to block, while the ‘Communication’ and ‘Streaming’ scenarios automatically adjust settings for the best performance and clarity during conversations and while streaming content, respectively.

Connecting is via integrated true wireless technology which will pair with any Bluetooth-enabled device. Claiming excellent comfort with its ergonomic design, the Conversation Clear Plus earbuds feature a nine-hour battery life so that they are charged and ready for whenever they are needed. The charging case offers another 27 hours of usage time.

The Sennheiser Conversation Clear Plus will be available for pre-order on January 5, 2023, and on sale on January 20 with an MSRP of £749.
