Summary
Do you struggle to follow conversations in a crowded restaurant or large gathering? Sennheiser’s Conversation Clear Plus is designed to help you hear everything so you don't miss a word. It's a low-profile earbud equipped with advanced active noise cancellation, designed to reduce background noise and focus on the voices near you. Its included app has three listening modes that allow you to tailor the type of noise cancellation and clarity from your smartphone or tablet. And, as a true wireless ANC bud, Conversation Clear Plus also offers active noise cancellation, Bluetooth streaming, and phone calls.

We've all been there. A busy restaurant overwhelmed by chatter, a crowded reception blanketed in elevated ambient noise, and the impossible task of following every word of a conversation. Sennheiser's answer to the problem is a wearable called Conversation Clear Plus. This earbud-style listening device leans on a processing chip manufactured by a big player in the hearing aid industry, artfully wrapping conversational clarity into a package that also delivers traditional earbud functionality.

In this review, we reveal the results of extensive, months-long testing where Conversation Clear Plus was used in bars, restaurants, airplanes... even packed sporting events. We also talk about its call quality, noise cancellation capabilities, and music playback prowess.

Watch and see if Conversation Clear Plus is a fit for you!

LOL... yup. Same boat.

I actually used these this past weekend in a restaurant/bar across the street from Fenway Park in Boston. It was packed and crazy loud. Popped them... could clearly understand everyone at our large table. They're very cool devices!

I wouldn't mind having something like this, but some that are not so big. They don't have to be hidden, just a little smaller. There is probably something out there, but I haven't taken the time to look around.

There might be... I didn't find anything. And I totally get what you're saying. Their bulk makes them just a little awkward, appearance-wise. Inevitably, you have to explain what you're wearing to people who don't know.
