On-trend wireless headphones with a sound pedigree

Our customers have loved Sennheiser headphones for years, and neckband-style Bluetooth earbuds are currently a top trend. Sennheiser's HD 1 In-ear Wireless combines these two popular choices into one great set of portable headphones. The sturdy neckband stabilizes the earbuds so that they feel light and secure as you move around. And music plays wirelessly from your phone.  

Looks good on the go

Part of Sennheiser's fashion-conscious HD 1 product line, these headphones feature some nice design touches. The neckband is covered with handsome, ultra-soft stitched leather. It's subtle and elegant-looking, balanced against the flashier, mirrored-chrome earpieces.   

Stay in control

The design isn't just about good looks — there's some neat functionality, too. If you get a phone call, the neckband will actually vibrate to alert you. You can answer it through the headphones' built-in mic. There are controls for music and phone calls right on the neckband, so you should rarely have to fish your phone out of your bag or pocket. 

Energetic sound, rich in detail

Since these are Sennheiser headphones, you know sound quality was a top priority, too. Powerful dynamic drivers dish out lively sound that's nicely balanced. Each earbud features an acoustic "tunnel" made of stainless steel that carries the sound from the driver directly into your ear canal.

Comfortable ear tips that stay in place

Soft, flexible ear tips are included. You can choose from four different sizes, so you should be able to find the right fit. They help keep the headphones securely in place while keeping external sound out.

Great sound, a few drawbacks

Chris from South Dennis, MA on 3/18/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Overall these have great sound, unfortunately they just didn't fit my ears well, and I was slightly disappointed by the build quality. I think that they are a very good product, but ultimately weren't right for me.

Pros: Sound quality

Cons: Ear fit, build quality seemed fragile.

Dave from Towaco, NJ on 3/4/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these earbuds to use in an open space office. I wanted to be able to take phone calls/web meetings from my computer or listen to music and be connected to my personal Cellphone. I wanted at least 10 hours battery life. The specs for these are perfect! Pros: Battery life 10 hours! I got at least that! Connects well to two devices! Great features on the collar: Mute, volume, skip etc.. Great mic for phone calls; Can connect via USB to make connection and voice better if needed. I think this could be an issue with my computer not up to the Bluetooth v4.1 spec :( Cons: Depending on the machine you connect with, I noticed for music the earbuds could lack proper bass for me. I used the Capture app (not very good) to adjust the EQ... It was better but not as good as my bose SoundSport. (Problem with the Bose SoundSport was the poor mic)

So glad I purchased these

Cookie from New York, NY on 1/30/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Didn't know what to expect since I've never used something like this before, but the Sennheiser HD 1 in-ear wireless Bluetooth is FANTASTIC. Wanted something to watch TV without disturbing anyone. But now I don't want to watch tv without it as the sound is so much better than I could have ever imagined. Superior quality, light weight and extremely comfortable. Also, Crutchfield tech support was very helpful in assisting me to me pair it with my TV.

Pros:

Cons:

Love these!

Grover from Greenwood, SC on 12/17/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I like the fact that the electronics and battery are in the collar because this makes the earbuds very lightweight and comfortable. More important though, the sound from these is terrific! As has been mentioned, getting the right size ear adapters to fit your ears is crucial to getting the best sound. A bit pricey, but the superior quality is evident starting when you take them out of the box and really realized when you hear them. They block out almost all external sound/noise.

Pros: great quality and design

Cons: a bit pricey

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Sound is awesome and the quality is what you would expect from Sennheiser. I wear them all day working ,I also wear them at the gym they seem to stay in place, they are very comfortable. Pros: Great sound, great quality and design

Pros: Great sound, battery life, easy to use

Cons: If the length of wire can be adjusted or retractable will be perfect.

Love them

James from Tulsa, OK on 12/5/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I love it. Fits my needs almost perfectly. Only thing missing is that it does not have an external audio jack to connect directly through a wire to a device (like some airplane monitors). There is a Sony pair that has that feature, but it runs ~$300.

Pros:

Cons:

Great Product! Great Price!

Overview: The Sennheiser HD 1 (M2 IEBT) in-ear neckband wireless headphones are lightweight and comfortable, and have a soft leather neckband. The ear buds are the same as the HD 1 passive in-ear headphone with their durable metal construction. The custom-machined stainless steel acoustic pipe gives you high-performance audio reproduction with rich, detailed sound. The HD 1 in-ear wireless headphones feature Bluetooth with NFC one-touch pairing, and come with a USB charging cable, and a semi-hard zippered storage case.

Design: The HD 1 in-ear wireless headphones are equipped with high-performance dynamic drivers, housed in an ergonomic ear bud that is angled at 15°. The neckband is made of luxurious, ultra-soft sheepskin nappa leather, and comfortably rests at the base of your neck. The ear buds are attached to the neckband by 9" wires.

Bluetooth 4.1: With Bluetooth 4.1, the HD 1 in-ear wireless headphones give you freedom from cables. They are compatible with Qualcomm apt-X and AAC codec support for high-fidelity sound. Supported profiles include A2DP, AVRCP, HSP, and HFP. NFC One-touch pairing lets you immediately connect to your compatible Android devices. You can even pair up to two devices at once. When you don't want to go wireless, you can connect the HD 1 in-ear wireless to your computer via USB and listen to your music while the battery charges. (On-board controls do not function when the headphones are plugged in via USB.)

Ear Sleeves: The HD 1 in-ear wireless headphones come with four sizes of silicone ear sleeves (XS, S, M, L) to assure you'll find the perfect fit.

Remote/Microphone: The HD 1 in-ear wireless headphones has on-board controls and a microphone on the neckband. The 3-button remote lets you control volume, music playback (play, pause, play next song, play previous song), and phone functions (accept call, end call, reject call, voice control). The built-in omni-directional microphone lets you carry on your phone conversations with clarity. The headphones provide voice notification of the pairing status and low-battery warnings. The neckband also offers vibration alerts for incoming calls.

Battery: The headphones are equipped with a built-in Lithium-Polymer battery (170mAh) to give you a full 10 hours of playback from a 1.5 hour charge. The battery charges via the supplied Micro USB cable.

I really needed an earbud with better performance than my current in ear model. [ Christopher  Mar 05, 2018 ]
Recommendation of staff and it looks like a quality product at the going price. [ John  Nov 18, 2017 ]
QUALITY AND BUILD [ Michael  Sep 14, 2017 ]
I saw a review of the product in the Minneapolis StarTribune newspaper. I knew that Crutchfield was an authorized dealer of Sennheiser products. I have purchased many audio products through Crutchfield as they stand behind all products they sell. [ Sheryl  Jul 29, 2017 ]
Reputation of Sennheiser [ CARLOS  Jun 14, 2017 ]
Sennheiser...I've owned several headphones by this brand...currently have the M2 wireless...there's nothing better on the market (durable, quality finish, dynamic sound). So...when the HD 1 in ear wireless headsets were announced....decided to purchase them without hesitation. [ TWIN  May 13, 2017 ]
Always had great luck with all Sennheiser products. [ JAMES L.  Apr 22, 2017 ]
Sennheiser has great sound quality and the look of this neckband is awesome. [ Richard  Apr 09, 2017 ]
Like the Company everything I have got from them have exceeded my expectations [ James  Apr 03, 2017 ]

5 questions already asked

I do not know, I don't own any apple products, but the instruction sheet it says it will work with apple phones [ James  Jan 29, 2018 ]
Yes, it should work with the latest generation of Apple TV [ Jaime  Jan 29, 2018 ]
I don't know. I don't have App,e TV. [ Theodore  Jan 28, 2018 ]
I don't have Apple TV. But, i cannot imagine why they would not as long as the output device you are connecting to, amp, laptop etc has bluetooth. I use them primarily with my iPhone and MacBook Air. if all you have is Apple TV and a TV set then the TV set would have to have Bluetooth on the output. You should ask Crutchfield for assistance on that point if you are not sure. [ Lorin  Jan 28, 2018 ]
Not a clue. I don't have apple tv. They should work with any Bluetooth device. So they should connect to the tv or current audio source not the Apple TV player. [ Jesse  Jan 28, 2018 ]
I don't think so, unless the Apple TV has Bluetooth [ CLARENCE  Jan 28, 2018 ]
I am not sure as I don't have an apple TV, but it works great with my ipad and my android phone. The sound quality is amazing and they are easy to pair. I actually got my wife a pair of the Sennheiser HD1 M2 IEBT which are smaller, but the same sound quality. Actually, listening to them right now. I have gravitated towards them as they are lighter. The battery life isn't as good as the pair you are looking at because they are smaller, so that would be one drawback. They feel great in my ears and use them to workout without any issues. Probably a little more than you wanted to know, but hope this helps. [ Todd  Jan 28, 2018 ]
Yes and the earphones are great in every endeavor [ Charles  Jan 28, 2018 ]
I was not aware of that, and i did not retain he manual. However, I tired using the usb provided with the earbuds for charging and yes, it sounds pretty amazing. Just have to select USB output in your settings. At least that was the case on Mac Book Air. [ Lorin  Jul 30, 2017 ]
It's almost as good as the active noise cancellation headphones if you wear the right size earbuds. I have bose noise cancelling headphones but the sennheiser HD1 sounds much better. [ Maryrose  Jun 23, 2017 ]
Yes they are and I was caught in a sudden downpour with no ill effect. I really like these [ Charles  Jun 03, 2017 ]
Yes, you can wirelessly pair the HD 1 headphones to your iPad for audio playback. If you would like to discuss further, you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. Hope that helps! [ Larry  Apr 19, 2017 ]  Staff
