Sennheiser PXC 550 review

 

Great sound quality, but at what cost?

Great sounding ; On/off control well implemented ; aptX connectivity.

Unresponsive touch controls ; No battery notification ; Noise cancellation could be better.

The Sennheiser PXC 550s manage to achieve that full-bodied Sennheiser sound we've come to expect, but some of their other features leave a little to be desired. The PXC 550's greatest strength is their sound. Other wireless noise-cancelling headphones...

Sennheiser PXC 550 Wireless review

 

Sennheiser strikes a blow with these talented wireless noise-cancellers...

Pleasing transparency for the price ; Top timing ; Clear and dynamic sound ; Smart, minimalist design ; Effective noise-cancellation

Slightly rich bass ; In-house competition

Sennheiser offers talented wireless noise-cancellers at an even more attractive price point

Sennheiser PXC 550

 

The Sennheiser PXC 550 are wireless headphones with active noise cancellation, and go up against the Bose QC35 we reviewed and loved recently. This pair is a little more expensive at £329, but also offers a slightly more serious sound.

The Sennheiser PXC 550 are a set of high-quality active noise cancellation headphones with a boat-load of features – but they come at a price.

Sennheiser PXC 550 Wireless Headphone Review - FunkyKit

 

Today, with a big thanks to Sennheiser, we will be taking a good look at the PXC 550. It's a given that over-ear headphones normally produce some stunning sounds, but when manufacturers start to produce these headphones that are portable for travel, a...

Even though the PXC 550 is still quite stylish, it is not to the point that you are more worried about how good they look sitting on your head more than the practicalities of them. The PXC 550 is just so versatile in its design, from its folding away...

Sennheiser PXC-550 Wireless Headphones Review

 

Sennheiser enters the wireless noise cancelling headphones game and invites us to travel business class with the new PXC-550.

Clear, accurate and detailed sound ; Excellent Bluetooth implementation ; Comfortable and well built

Some volume limits ; Noise cancelling less effective used on its own ; Quite Pricey

Having so recently felt that the Bose QC35 represents the best option for the long distance traveller, the Sennheiser throws a mild spanner in those works. The does the same things as the Bose and if you intend to board that long haul flight and listen...

Sennheiser PXC 550 review

 

With top-notch sound and whisper-soft noise cancelling, the Sennheiser PXC 550 puts Bose on notice.

With impressive sound performance, a sleek and comfy design, and Sennheiser’s best noise cancellation yet, the new PXC 550 are primed to be your next set of travel cans.

Sennheiser PXC 550 Wireless review

 

When it comes to headphones, one tends to associate Bose with the "business traveler" demographic. But Sennheiser's making a pitch to that segment of the market with its new PXC 550 Wireless , a "premium" over-ear Bluetooth headphone that also features...

The Sennheiser PXC 550 Wireless is very comfortable, relatively lightweight over-ear wireless headphone that sounds very good and features impressive noise-cancellation technology. It has touch controls and delivers excellent performance as a headset....

It's pricier than the Bose; while the sound quality is excellent for Bluetooth, it's lacking that little bit of extra sparkle and definition (Sennheiser's own Momentum II Wireless sounds better).

While it doesn't quite eclipse the less-expensive Bose, the Sennheiser PXC 550 Wireless headphone is comfortable and feature packed, and performs very well.

Sennheiser PXC 550 Wireless

 

The Sennheiser PXC 550 headphones deliver excellent Bluetooth audio and noise cancellation in a feature-packed—if occasionally problematic—design.

Powerful, adjustable audio performance with rich bass depth and bright highs. Excellent noise cancellation circuitry. Includes a detachable audio cable for passive listening. Exceptionally comfortable.

Control pad is easy to misfire in certain modes. Possible to accidentally power the headphones up or down because of swiveling earcup controls. Digital signal processing is not for purists.

Conclusions Most headphones that offer Bluetooth audio and noise cancellation end up being solid Bluetooth headphones with lousy-to-decent noise cancellation. But Bose changed this trend recently with the excellent QuietComfort 35 , and we are also...
