PXC 550

3 April 2018
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.

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...

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

Great quality would recommend

9 January 2019
Sound is amazing no matter what you listen to love the bass. Headset itself takes a few hours to get used to and is now super comfortable, however sometimes if I don't position it right the tips of my ears can get a little red. Only downside is that if connecting via bluetooth or USB charging cable to a laptop, sound quality defaults to Hands Free Protocol, so lower quality sound, but there is a headphone jack included that allows for full sound. Better use for phone, not optimised for laptop.

Worth it

13 December 2018
This was my first foray into noise cancelling headphones. Totally life changing. Amazing. Bluetooth connects effortlessly to both my phone and laptop (at the same time!). Lasts for days without charging.
I got these on special and they are totally worth it.

Good with a minor issue

13 December 2018
Mostly a headset I enjoy using! only sometimes ( 1/10 times ) it randomly emits static sounds. not sure whether BT of my phone is shot or another external factor

Excellent, perfect for the avid listener!

13 December 2018
I've had these headphones for about a month now and I've had NO problems with them! They produce a solid, in-depth sound. I use them every day for hours on end and only have to charge them once a week! Could be annoying for some but it's no real hassle for me (Which is very good for wireless headphones!). Got them on a Pbtech sale and I don't think I'll ever need to replace them!

Great headphones, just one minor issue

13 December 2018
I had a great experience of using these headphones since last few weeks! Headphones have natural sound and great to hear crisp clear vocals. I'm blown away by the features this device offers, the feather touch controls, turn on/off system and much more.

Just one minor drawback, which can be annoying if the feature is turned on - SMART PAUSE! I don't know if someone else gas faced similar issue but when smart pause is turned on, for some reason when I'm on call the call goes on hold! Also occasionally when I lean my head forward, music pauses - which honestly can be annoying! So I've turned off the feature.
