Product Expert headphones

With the Sennheiser PXC 550 Wireless, you can listen to your favorite music. Via Bluetooth, you can stream music wirelessly from your smartphone or tablet. There's no cable in the way and you have a lot of freedom of movement. Thanks to active noise canceling, ambient noise is muffled. The headphones last up to 30 hours, so you can listen to music continuously for hours on end. Thanks to the soft leather ear cushions and the ergonomic over-ear design, you can wear the headphones for a long time.

"Wonderful"

By André Klepinine on 12 June 2019

  • Pros:
    great sound
  • Pros:
    love that you can toggle controls using only the headphones
  • Pros:
    very comfortable

Nice design, look cool walking down the street. More importantly, sound quality is very good - love that you can switch between noise cancelling and "listening to the outside world" mode, with just a finger gesture on the headphones itself. Finger gestures are also great when scrolling through music and adjusting volume, although fellow bus passengers thought I had some strange OCD going on with my hands continually swiping something non-existent next to my ear. I didn't care though as had my favourite album on full volume.

Would buy again in a heartbeat.
