Sennheiser PXC 550 Wireless NoiseGard Adaptive Noise Cancelling : Top quality and full of useful features

These headphones are perfect. I had my eye on them for a long time and went for it. The sound is amazing and doesn’t bleed to badly at mid volume. They are comfortable but be aware as per usual with over/on ears if you wear glasses they will dig in over time. Batter is really good and charges quickly and the case it comes with fits it perfectly along with all the cables. Perfect for long journeys or commutes with the adaptive noise cancelling.

Best sound quality and 90% liking for noise cancelling. Easy to connect and enjoying the multi device bluetooth connectivity. Material over the ears are feels very soft and comfy, some time i wear it around most of the time in day(max: straight 11 hours few times) with a single issue. Feels joy on ears and on head too.

Sound quality is very nice, especially with anc on. I bought these pair of headphones for work, anc by itself isn’t much helping in the office, you still can hear a lot of sounds, but if you turn on some music , you will be able to work even if somebody yelling near you. These headphones are not designed for the outdoor, wind blows in the microphone and you hear a lot of noise. :)exists some troubles with bluetooth pairing sometimes with my windows laptop and android smartphone. Very stylish and comfortable you will get a lot of attention.

Umph, mixed feelings about this one. The sounds is great, if the machine it is coming from it is giving it enough juice. Even with an amp, this will not sound louder due to its own amp used for the anc. Would recommend you try this in a store somewhere before making the purchase. Bt sound quality is not yet where i would like it to me. Im going to stick to wired for a while.

Many positive things about these headphones. Great noise cancelling (and for me the biggest thing is that they can still be worn outside in windy weather, unlike the bose versions which i had to send back because the mildest breeze affected the noise cancelling mikes). They work as wired headphones even when the battery is flat (unlike bose). The wireless capability is also good. If you aren’t a music expert, i doubt you would notice the quality of the sound, in any case, i like the ability to change the sound effects depending on whether you are listening to music or speech. The phone call capability is excellent, sound is clear and there are no problems with the caller hearing you even when in a noisy environment. However, there are little niggles. The ability to control from the right ear piece is good but is fiddly and overly sensitive – i would have preferred the ability to turn it on and off. The bluetooth hasn’t worked with my pc laptop at work or mac at home (unlike the bose i tried before). These are small things i suppose, but at this price, you really want your headphones to be amazing.

Excellent sound – i have paired these to a bluetooth adaptor called avantree 4. With other bluetooth adapters (blitzwolf) i was getting great coverage but it was making the headphone mic turn on which was bad for gaming / general use. With this bluetooth adapter for the pxc 550 it works perfect and i can use these with my pc no problem.

The right hand earcup has a touch command which is intuitive and useful. The sound quality is only average, compared to higher quality products such as master & dynamic headsets. On a long flight i left this sennheiser unit running for around 8 hours, and felt really dizzy afterwards which i never experience although i fly often. I attribute this potentially to the bluetooth waves not being all that healthy. I have switched to using a cable version instead and avoid any long-term health risks.

Impressed with the sound of these. 0 phones so thought i’d try these for use on planes & trains. They pair easily and are reasonably simple to use but what impresses me is the sound. I was expecting the noise cancelling element to degrade the sound but these have plenty of punch & the detail is impressive.

  • sound is okay but not high quality, overall features are good
  • Great pair of headphone but.
  • Perfect

Really wanted to like these but the volume even at max is just too low , i’ve tried the 3 main contenders and rate the sony 1000xm2 the best. Similar quality sound but more volume and a touch more low end. Just started my return and will be getting the xm2.

So these headphones are great, they are super comfortable even after hours of wearing them. The sound quality is great, not as good as my audio technica ath-m50x, but for a wireless pair of earphones they are the best i’ve heard. Battery life is incredibly impressive, i charge them around once a week and use them every day at both work and the travel to and from. The only small downside is the noise cancellation, comparing it to the sony wh-1000xm3 its not as good and does let in some more sound, but it really isn’t anything to complain about. Overall, the best wireless headphones i’ve owned, would recommend.

These headphones have a great build quality and packed with features which makes them great for this pricehowever, my problem was that i hear a hissing sound from when anc is on (more like a distant waterfall) even when the music is playing. The higher the volume the higher the sound. I have described the issue to sennheiser uk support and they replied saying that the hissing sound should disappear when music is being played. They have recommended me sending them the headphones for an examination. These are my second pair of headphones which i have returned. Quite a shame because i liked their design and build quality.

Overall, i’m very happy with these headphones. The sound quality is great and isn’t affected when activating the noise cancellation. They are lightweight, without feeling cheap and are comfortable to use for long periods. The only issue i’ve had was people couldn’t hear me on a call when out doors in strong wind, but that would have been the same without a headset.

The heaphones are fine – noise cancelling as expected and easy to use. There are some nice new features, like the ‘double-tap’ to hear surrounding noise. However, i personally prefer the sennheiser btnc 4. 50 for the following reason:1) noice cancelling about as good (as far as i can tell)2) the band is thicker on the pxc 550 and therefore is causing some literal headaches for me – even when stretched to the largest size3) touch controls are finicky and slightly annoyingeverything else is fine – seller fulfiled on time and was well packaged.

Was choosing between the latest bose and beats at first, then learnt that beats just price for the brand and not really high quality inside, bose are high quality but they look like dinosaurs, so this was a good alternative – and gosh how right i was. Great sound, and you can adjust it freely which is great and i believe unlike bose or others; look nice, lots of features and settings you can choose from, convenient on the head and you turn them on and off simply but turning the ear covering part.

Thanks for the opportunity to have this brand here. I recommend it to any fans who holds the sound quality and design.

Everything is good but it feels little heavy on my head after few hrs of use. If you looking for comfort then go for bose. I was using bose before and i never felt any pain, was super comfortable.

  • sound is okay but not high quality, overall features are good
  • Great pair of headphone but.
  • Perfect

Sennheiser PXC 550 Wireless NoiseGard Adaptive Noise Cancelling, Bluetooth Headphone with Touch Sensitive Control and 30-Hour Battery Life – Black

I’ve never had any headphones with such complex tech, but simple to usethis is my third investment in a set of headphones (2nd set from sennheiser)my first pair were v-moda crossfade, and they were in the previous generation of headphones (with noise cancellation permanently)but these are the future with everything – sound (not as much bass as i’m used to, fyi – that’s me being snappy) , features and looks, with the swipe panel on the right ear cup for play, pause, skip etc. My only thing that i expected, were that noise cancellation would work without music playing. I’m being a bit critical, but even when music is on the quite side the n-c is exceptionalrecommended over anything on the market right now.
