The PXC 550 wireless headphones combine noise cancellation, Bluetooth connectivity, and signature Sennheiser sound. These over-the-ear headphones are incredibly comfortable and fold up neatly. They're designed to meet the needs of frequent travelers, and are equally impressive at home or in the office.
The PXC 550s sound clear and detailed, making long listening sessions enjoyable without being fatiguing. The soft ear pads and light weight design also provide all day comfort.
Wires can be a hassle when you're travelling, so the PXC 550s use built-in Bluetooth with aptX for high-quality music streaming. The extra long battery life provides up to 20 hours of wireless use with noise cancellation. The headphones' clever folding design also adds extra convenience - just click the earcups into the listening position to turn them on and fold them flat to power down.
Sennheiser's NoiseGuard technology adjusts the level of noise-cancellation to your environment. You can go from a long flight to a crowded airport terminal without skipping a beat. If you want to quickly listen for announcements or hear what's happening around you, just tap the earcup twice and the "talk through" feature picks up external sounds. The right earcup's touch controls also let you answer calls, skip songs, and adjust the volume. Sennheiser's free Captune app adds even more functionality - you can manually adjust the level of noise cancellation or tune the sound to your preferences.
Whether you're traveling or at home, the Sennheiser PXC 550s are an excellent choice. If you have any questions about these or other headphones, just give us a call.
