Sennheiser PXC 550-II Wireless, NoiseGard Adaptive Noise Cancelling, Bluetooth Headphone

 

Sennheiser, like arch-rival Bose, is renowned for its knowledge in noise-cancelling headphones and we’re big fans of the initial PXC 550 Wireless, which we granted our leading distinction of 5 stars 3 years back. Here we have the follow-up to that original and popular design, the Sennheiser PXC-550 II, revealed at IFA 2019. The silver trim of the originals has actually gone, the MkIIs having a darker matt surface, and yet there’s some remarkable brand-new tech underneath the hood.

A triple microphone variety assists make sure speech clearness when giving voice commands or taking calls in loud environments, states Sennheiser. A redesigned mobile phone app enables the user to change the level of noise-cancelling depending upon the environment they are in. A folding style, light-weight products and compact travel case make the Sennheiser PXC-550 II perfect for users.

Other improvements are Bluetooth 5.0, assistance for aptXTM Low Latency playback to keep audio and video in sync, a brand-new Voice Assistant button for accessing Siri, Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant and an Anti-Wind noise-cancellation settings.

For added benefit, the Sennheiser PXC-550 II headphones immediately switch on and link through Bluetooth when they are unfolded. That is really cool. And a touchpad on the actual earcup permits the user to change volume, play, pause or switch tracks, or to accept calls with a single touch.

Like B&W’s PXs and some other competitors, the brand-new PXCs have what Sennheiser calls ‘smart pause’. In other words, this stops briefly the music when you take the headphones off, and restarts it when you put them back on. Not innovative to be honest, but really helpful.

Battery life in the Sennheiser PXC-550 II is a decent 20 hours with Bluetooth and sound cancellation turned on, or approximately 30 hours when utilizing a wired connection with ANC on. Sound quality is truly mesmerising, as with the previous model. You won’t be disappointed in that regard. However, if you would like to consider other alternatives, you can check out our range of reviewed wireless headphones.

Summary

So there you have it. The biggest difference by far is going from Bluetooth 4.2 to 5. If you’re an Apple user, this will bring you a very noticeable increase in sound quality. And if you’ve had any trouble with latency using the PXC 550, the II should alleviate that with AptX Low Latency comparability. Sound quality is top-notch and these would make for fantastic headphones.
