Great sound but...

Sound was excellent. Battery life was good. Bluetooth was terrible. It kept losing connection. The longer I had it the worse it got having to repair it multiple times a day. PB sorted it out well though.
Oh and the noise canceling ability is pretty damn average

Great quality would recommend

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

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

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!

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!

Sennheiser PXC 550

Major Points:

Build Quality:
Good, very durable, very moldable. Exceptionally soft ear pads and very, very, very light weight. deceptively light for the size. Quality is top notch. You can wear all day without any type of ear fatigue. It is amazing for someone like me who gets annoyed with ear phones after a while. These, i don't.

Music Sound:
Very good. Very clear, gets decently loud (though not deafeningly loud). If you have hearing loss you're not going to think these are super loud. But the sound is super clear and balanced. It's loud enough. Trust me. Base is great, mids are great. it almost deliberately doesn't get super loud to...view more

Good buy!

After 1 week of use:

Pros:
- Feels premium
- Costs cheaper than other competitors
- Sounds Good. Key point to remember: PLEASE tune the EQ as per your preference using the CapTune app. It makes a lot of difference! The time you will spend in doing that will be directly proportional to the sound quality.
- No complaints with the battery. I use it in office for calls and music. Have not run out of it ever. I did charge it couple of times. Never felt "OMG battery is draining!"
- Light on the ear and head

Cons:
- the plastic and the leather on the ear cups are prone to finger prints. Keep good cleaning agents handy.
- ears feel warm ...view more

Great product

I got these headphones a couple of weeks ago and they've done what I needed which was to be able to play video on my PC and switch to mobile when calls come in. They do have low level white noise which can be a little annoying and sometimes it takes a while to switch back to the PC once a call is ended so I manually remind it, I suspect most of that is me needing to spend some time working out software settings though.
