Clearly: the VMX 100 does not look like a classic headset – edgy and innovative, so the shell-shaped mobile companion can be described. The bracket is disproportionately wide and some deterrent in the first moment.

But has it once set up the VMX 100, one learns quickly to appreciate the design – the rubberized strap gives a secure and stable hold the headset. Also the speaker briefly ensures distrust, because he is put in the ear canal, but kept at a distance.

But also here you will be taught: the headset makes himself comfortable to wear for hours, without having the ear deaf feels – in terms of comfort, the Sennheiser is a genuine Primus.

Ball joint for individual needs

The equipment leaves nothing to be desired: the travel kit 3 in 1 version, the manufacturer packs a practical case and car charger and a USB for on the go. In addition, the VMX 100 with a supple ball joint, which allows the ideal positioning of the microphone arm shines.

The headset was sweating in the laboratory: with an average of 70 hours of stand by mode is still acceptable, but flawed compared to endurance Regent as about the Sony Ericsson HBH-PV740 (circa 1000 hours).

The practice test certifies the VMX 100 ensures good intelligibility with potential for improvement in terms of sound quality.
