Sennheiser PXC 550

No reviews
Verdict: 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.

Sennheiser PXC 550

4.8
Verdict: Sennheiser threw down the gauntlet to Bose with their recently released PXC 550 Wireless Headphones. The Bose QC35 are often cited as the industry leading noise cancelling wireless headphones. We put the PXC 550 through its paces to tell you if Sennheiser have knocked Bose off the perch. [...]
Pros: High build quality Excellent bass-focused sound User-friendly control scheme Customisable EQ and noise isolation
Cons: Pricey Can't use EQ or customisation outside of CapTune media player

Sennheiser PXC 550 Noise Canceling Bluetooth Headphones

No reviews
Verdict: In terms of fit and finish; materials build quality; accessorization; and styling, I find the Sennheiser PXC 550 at least a nine out of ten. This is an extremely well thought out and executed design. Comfort is very good...an eight.

Sennheiser PXC 550 Wireless Headphones

4.0
Verdict: Wirelessheadphones received a big boost last year when Apple removed the 3.5mm socket from their iPhones, however while Headphones have a big advantage sound wise over earbuds they also have a large size disadvantage so a small Wireless Headphone set has a ready-made market.

Sennheiser PXC 550 Noise-Cancelling Headphones: Australian Review

No reviews
Verdict: One Christmas morning in 1989, I opened a big present, bigger than me. It was the Nintendo Entertainment System, complete with PowerPad and Zapper. Nearly three decades later, I unboxed a futuristic block of aluminium: an NES clone called the Analogue Nt.

Sennheiser PXC 550

Noise cancelling headphones really do help to relieve the stress from travel and help you to communicate with your friends,...

Sennheiser PXC 550 Wireless review

Sennheiser PXC 550 Wireless

4.0
Verdict: The list of excellent wireless headphones that also provide stellar noise cancellation is a short one, but things are turning around. Earlier this summer, Bose introduced its first wireless QuietComfort option, the QuietComfort 35 .
Pros: 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
Cons: 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

Verdict: Looking around the business class cabins on any aeroplane, it's clear that for many travellers wanting traditional big-brand quality headphones , it has to be either Bose or Sennheiser. On one recent British Airways flight, I counted five Bose to four Sennheiser.

Pros: Compact, portable design, Sharp and detailed sound quality
Cons: Midrange can be a touch harsh, Touch control is finicky

Sennheiser PXC550 Bluetooth headphones

No reviews
Verdict: I have to say that the Bluetooth issue is annoying as heck, especially that I use Google Assistant a lot. I'm still hopeful that this could be fixed by a firmware update. Sennheiser PXC550 is my ‘take it with me' choice to work, Premiere Pro CC editing, and PlayStation gaming.

Sennheiser PXC 550

No reviews
Verdict: At $399, you have better options in the price range. In my experience both the Bose QC35 and the Sony MDR-1000X cancel noise better than the Sennheiser, and I personally find in-ear monitors like the NuForce HEM8 to block out noise better than any fancy noise cancelling circuitry anyway.

Sennheiser PXC 550

Verdict: Shure, Bose and Sony rule the top-tier segment in the audio market, and so does Sennheiser. And when you think of noise-cancellation headphones, Bose, naturally comes to mind.

Sennheiser PXC 550 Wireless

5.0
Verdict: That's more of a statement than a criticism, though. While certainly rich, it errs just on the right side of overstated, and is careful not to slow rhythms or weigh down dynamics.Balance still favours the low-end through the wire, albeit there's a noticeable leg-up in refinement.It's not massive,...
Pros: Pleasing transparency for the price, Top timing, Clear and dynamic sound, Smart, minimalist design, Effective noise-cancellation
Cons: Slightly rich bass, In-house competition

Sennheiser PXC 550 review: Bose QC35 has competition

4.0
Verdict: Sennheiser PXC 550 is a wireless headset with adaptive noise cancellation at Rs 29,990
Pros: On the right earcup, there are two buttons. One that lets you choose two degrees of noise cancellation and another lets you toggle between effect modes. The first one is a bit hard to figure out unless you have the drone of a jet engine to drain out.
Cons: This may be the only headphone I have seen with the cable going into the right ear cup. Thankfully, this is a wireless set

Sennheiser PXC 550

4.0

Pros: Great sound quality, Immense features roster, Effective, customisable noise cancellation
Cons: ANC bettered by Bose, Expensive, Very slight hardness to mids

Sennheiser PXC 550

SENNHEISER PXC 550 BT NC Wireless Bluetooth Noise-Cancelling Headphones - Black

4.5
Verdict: 
Pros: Connectivity and app were solid
Cons: Difficult. In bluetooth terms they're ok. But in comparison to wired headphones half the price the sound quality is truly awful. That's more a fault of bluetooth technology being far from ready to handle quality audio than it is these particular headphones.

Excellent audio and noise cancelling

5.0
Verdict: Excellent audio and noise cancelling create a product I'm glad I bought. Compared to two other sets of noise-cancelling headphones I have owned, these are superior in both noise cancelling and audio quality. The over-ear design creates more bulk than my first, on-air Sennheiser headphones.
Pros: Noise-Cancelling Degree, Quality Audio, Nice Features, Comparative Price
Cons: Some time to learn controls

Better than Bose & Sony

5.0
Verdict: Tested these against the Bose QC 35 and Sony MDX's. Both good headphones but the Sennheiser's trump the Sony's for sound quailty and surprisingly, they offer better noise cancelling than the market leader in Bose. Battery life is exceptional and the CapTune app is phenomenal. Highly recommended!!!
