Sennheiser responds to Bose wireless assault

by • July 4, 2016 • No Comments

Last month, Bose introduced Bluetooth wireless to its top drawer active noise cancellation innovation for the astounding, Momentum-beating QuietComfort 35 over-ear headphones. Sennheiser has returned the power assist with a pair of noise-canceling wireless cans created for extended use – the PXC 550 Wireless headphones.

  • Sennheiser says which ear-shaped ergonomic design should result in
  • The headphones fold flat to be stowed away in the provided travel case between trips
  • The headphones sport touch controls on the earcup for playback and bringing calls
  • Sennheiser is promising crystal clear call-bringing thanks to a three microphone array

The PXC 550 Wireless over-ears step into the shoes of the aging, but yet highly-regarded, PXC 450 noise-canceling headphones and are aimed directly at the business traveler.

Leading Sennheiser’s performance charge is a battery life between charges of up to 30 hours (significantly additional than the QC35s), yet which is definitely most likely to dip a bit when the NoiseGard hybrid adaptive noise cancellation circuitry is engaged. Even so, the company does say which users should be able-bodied to “travel of London to Hong Kong and back on a single charge.” Charging time is 3 hours.

In our experience, Sennheiser headphones generally donate in the sound high end department, but if users are not keen on the four presets on the market-bodied, the listening experience can be personalized with the assist of a companion mobile app for iOS and Android called CapTune.

Frequency response is reported as 17 Hz to 23 kHz, total harmonic distortion is less than 0.5 percent (1 kHz, 100 dB) and SPL is 110 dB.

“Supreme comfort” comes courtesy of ear-shaped ergonomics, and the headphones fold flat to be stowed away in the provided travel case between trips. The PXC 550s tip the scales at 227 g (8 oz).

Elsewhere, the headphones sport touch controls on the earcup for playback and bringing calls, with Sennheiser promising crystal clear call-bringing thanks to a three microphone array, and NFC device pairing. The wireless tech is bang up date, coming in the shape of Bluetooth 4.2 with aptX assist. Playback can in addition be instantly paused when the headphones are removed.

The Sennheiser PXC 550 Wireless headphones can be on the market-bodied later this month for US$399.
