What are the Sennheiser PXC 550?
The Sennheiser PXC 550 are wireless headphones with active noise cancellation, and go up against the Bose QC35 we reviewed and loved recently.
A high price means they fall short of leaping into pole position among wireless noise cancellation, but they're a major improvement over Sennheiser s previous models in terms of both style and sound.
Where Sennheiser used to embrace a tech-heavy style, with buttons clearly sitting across the ear cups, the PXC 550 look far simpler.
A full inch of padding, soft synthetic leather covers and cups that don't cramp your ears make these primed for all-day use or, fairly likely, an ultra-long flight.
They re very Bose QC35-like in this respect, although Bose tries even harder to get you to notice how comfortable its headphones are the very first second you put them on, with an even softer feel.
