Comfortable & Brilliant

20 August 2019
I've had these Sennheisers for a couple weeks and am so glad I chose them! Picked them as they're the lightest on the market, have top sound quality and can be connected to two devices at once which I use while gaming.

Pros:
Lightest wireless ANCs I found make these super comfy for wearing for a long time, and doesn't clamp too hard.
Sound quality top class with different EQ modes easily accessible on headset and via app.
touch controls on the ear cup easy to use
great noise cancelling performance
great battery life

Cons:
not the best looking
micro-usb rather than type-c charger
can be expensive, though PB sorted me out a good d...

Had these headphones for about 3 weeks now -> as much as I would love to rave about them - I have noticed a couple of downsides.

I expected the battery life to be a bit better.
Have the occasional stutter while listening to music, loses sound for a couple of seconds

Sound is good
Noise cancelling is good - nice having the option of different settings
Comfortable

Almost perfect

24 June 2019
I've been using these for a few weeks now and they're fantastic. The sound is very clean and they are comfortable for long listening sessions. The Bluetooth connectivity with my Android phone has been near flawless. I've also used them with the supplied cable connected to my laptop and they sound great there as well.

The noise cancelling is very good. I don't have much to compare it to but it makes my train ride very peaceful and effectively cuts out the office noises at work.

My only complaint is that the touch controls are a bit hard to reliably activate - I can get pause and resume pretty well but skipping tracks seems to be difficul...

Very good sound and noise cancellation
Do get a little warm / hot on ears after using for some time - but I suppose is trade off for noise cancelling
thanks

Great sound, just a little soft

16 March 2019
Great comfort, great ANC, great sound quality. However you just need to crank the volume a little compared to other headphones. Tried all of them, Bose QC35, Sony MDRs and these. These Sennheisers are still my favourite

PXC 550

These headphones are awesome with advanced technology. Very good sound quality.
Only thing I dislike about these headphones is the touch technology for Play, Pause, Next etc. if you touch it accidentally or tilt your head and your shoulder touches the touch pad, they pause the music.

27 July 2017
I have used this product for a month, after seeking and comparing with other wireless headphones with active noise cancelling (ANC) feature. I am satisfied with this product.

Pros:
1. Sennheiser PXC 550 gives an excellent sound with the crystal sound technology; the mid and high frequencies are nice.
2. The soundstage is wide and close to the momentum series.
3. The bass is present and tight enough but is not too punchy.
4. Bluetooth 4.2 and APTX technologies give excellent connectivity and sound. I never get a problem to pair it with 2 devices simultaneously (iPhone and PC).
5. The swipe technology also gives quick and better acce...

A great pair of headphones for the price

10 January 2020
As my title suggests these headphones are great for the price. Whilst you'd be have to pay a lot more for headphones that may give you better noise reduction, these were able to reduce most of the annoying droning of the aircraft. I have recently been on 4 international long haul flights and they were comfortable and battery lasted the distance easily. Maybe I have too sensitive hearing or expected complete silence... maybe I should just stuff my ears with earplugs for complete noise reduction, however these were great to suppress the typical noises onboard and I was able to enjoy all the audio clearly and hear every note without cranking up...

Super convenient headset

28 November 2019
I've bought my PXC 550 a few months back, and its super effective in noise cancellation. Also, it is very comfortable to wear as well. One drawback I've noticed is when the headset is connected to two devices over Bluetooth and working in an environment with few other Bluetooth devices, it dropped the audio quality and had some noise.
