Description

With the Sennheiser PXC 550-II, you don't have to turn up the music in a noisy environment. The headphones have noise canceling, which muffles ambient noise and white noise. Thanks to the aptX Bluetooth profile, you can stream music in higher quality than with the standard A2DP bluetooth profile. AptX also ensures a more stable connection with your playback device.

Sound according to expert

The Sennheiser PXC 550-II are right for you if you're looking for headphones that make music sound the way the artist intended it to be. The low and mid tones are rarely or never emphasized. These tones aren't pushed to the background either. This keeps the sound reproduction true to nature. The headphones have an equalizer. This allows you to adjust the sound to your own taste, so that it always meets your expectations.

    The PXC 550-II meets my expectations. With a matte black finish, I think this model looks sleeker than its predecessor, the PXC 550. The sound quality is superb and the active noise canceling is very good. I bought this to listen to music undisturbed during work. They are very comfortable and light, allowing me to wear them all day with ease. I also occasionally use these headphones for gaming, thanks to the included cable you can plug them into your Playstation 4 controller. With online games I now hear much better from which side an enemy is coming, for example. The only downside: unfortunately you still have to charge with a standard micro-USB instead of USB-C.

    • comfortable ear cushions
    • adjustability
    • sound quality
    • bluetooth protocol aptx HD/LL
    • battery life

    I was looking for headphones that I could use for multiple purposes, listen to music on a smartphone, watch movies on PC and TV and possibly make a phone call or zoom meeting. The sennheiser pxc 550 II meets this perfectly.

    Decisive for the sennheiser pxc 550 II is that it can also be connected wired (usb) to a PC, then it charges and you can still use it. In addition, the different bluetooth protocols such as aptx HD and aptx LL are very pleasant.

    • Clear sound
    • Comfortable on your head
    • bat. Lasts a long time. I use it 24/7

    It is worth more than €280 max. headset, but quality and all is there for sure! Highly recommended!

    great sound
    • European product
    • super sound and damping
    • BT pairing didn't go straight
    • Not to wear all day

    Pairing BlueTooth didn't go well with the PC. Battery lasts a long time. I mainly use this for conf calls. I wouldn't be able to wear the headphones all day.

    Good basic model for home use
    • Comfortable
    • Easy to connect and switch devices
    • Beautiful design
    • Clear and easy instructions
    • Ambient noise at phone is amplified
    • Pain in ears after a while
    • Low ambient sounds with noise canceling sound quite intense

    It is a good basic model for noise canceling headphones for a fairly affordable price. Noise canceling could be better and with a telephone, ambient noise is experienced as loud for the other person, so it is more suitable for work at home, for example.

    Couldn't find a better one in this price range
    • Easy operation, touch control
    • Compact to store
    • Perfect sound
    • Comfortable fit
    • App is not really an addition
    • No USB-C cable

    Just a good product, Sennheiser, then you don't have to look long for something better in this class.

    Great headphones, nice sound and good noise canceling.
    • Sound quality is good
    • Customizable via app
    • Noise canceling works very well
    • Excellent Bluetooth range
    • No passthrough audio during playback
    • Mic is not particularly good
    • No custom EQ in the app, just presets.

    I work in a data center myself and this headset is really great. Sound quality, after some tweaking, is great. Noise canceling works very well, in strong winds it sometimes comes through. (Which makes sense if the wind blows directly on the microphone)

    You can get a bit warmer ears because of the closed judgments. No problems personally.

    good sound, good noise cancelling, comfortable
    • Good sound
    • Simple bluetooth pairing
    • Lightweight
    • Good wearing comfort
    • Noise canceling works well
    • Bluetooth button hard to find and small

    Very nice headphones with very good sound and good noise canceling.
    Light and good wearing comfort.
    Bluetooth pairing is easy, but sometimes it doesn't work right away. Bluetooth button (on/off) is small and hard to find, but you probably don't need it.

    If you care about sound quality, the best for this price.
    • Sound with NC almost the same as without NC
    • Light construction and large shells
    • Touch control responds as expected
    • Light construction gives a not solid impression
    • There is better NC in this price range
    • Also need a data grabbing app for 100% functionality

    These are literally the only headphones with NC under $500 that sound a bit neutral. I'm not the biggest fan of the "Sennheiser" sound, but compared to eg Sony who does all kinds of tricks (absurd bass boost and dynamic compression!) to get the best NC this is a relief.
    Just a little less NC and a little less solid feel.
