VMX_200_new_intro

Sennheiser’s VMX 200, beautiful design, but honestly lacks quite a lot of features. I received the VMX 200 a few days ago and I have been playing around with it since, testing it on every single call I receive and send. Call quality is absolutely phenomenally amazing and yes, I need to admit, that’s the main selling feature. But what about all of the other features that the VMX 200 is missing.

I need to say that the VMX 200’s packaging is the worst packaging I have ever seen which is really sad for a top brand such as Sennheiser. Sennheiser’s packaging is usually top of the line but this packaging looked like something from a $20 Walmart product that no one buys. I had to rip the entire packaging just to get to the product. The other thing that’s missing, a carrying case. Consumers want a carrying case for this, something really small, tough and simple so you won’t lose the product and you’ll keep it free from dust.

The VMX 200 sits amazingly well in your ear, it’s really comfortable. Battery life is insanely good.

In terms of the features, there aren’t any premium features. There is no A2DP, or 3rd party apps that you can install on it like some of its competitors such as Jawbone or BlueAnt. I really expected more premium features, but again, the call quality is far superior than any other Bluetooth headset I have ever tested.

Sennheiser, I hope you are listening. Roll out a new model with these new features and PLEASE improve your packaging and maybe even a fancier charger.  If the audio quality wasn’t as superb, I’d honestly give it a 2/5 rating, but given the SUPERB audio quality, I’ll give it this rating:

{rating}

Improve your packaging, add some more features and throw in a carrying case and this will be bumped to a 5/5 easily.
