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 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 Wireless 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: Say no to noise, say yes to music


Great sound quality goes hand in hand with portable design – the PXC 550 hold their own in 2018 despite the stiff competition

Compact, portable design ; Sharp and detailed sound quality

Midrange can be a touch harsh ; Touch control is finicky

For many, though, the most attractive aspect of the PXC 550 will be the price. The intervening months since its release have seen the PXC 550 receive some welcome discounts, so you can now find it on sale for around £250. With both Bose and B&W’s...

The PXC 550 ticks every box for the demanding headphone user. Cable-free operation comes in the shape of aptX Bluetooth, there's noise-cancelling tech to drown out any outside interference and operation couldn't be easier thanks to the smart control...

Review: Sennheiser PXC-550 Bluetooth headphones


The age of wireless headphones are upon us. While many sports in-ear headphones and general use models like the Apple Airpods, are ideal for short term casual use. Sennheiser's PXC-550 Wireless headphones are designed for travelling. These are...

Sennheiser’s PXC-550 Wireless headphones exemplify the best mix of sound, noise cancelling technology and app-based tuning and control plus the best battery life of any premium wireless headset in this class.

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...
