    + Great battery life
    + Comfortable (But get warm, especially if you have them when you exercise)
    + Foldable
    + Good Noise Canceling that can be gradually increased through the app.
    + Enough roomy enough to have earplugs / in-ear headphones inside the covers for extra sound attenuation. However, have the right small ears. ;)

    +/- Touch panels. about once out of 10 you don't get it to work the way you want. It also happens that you happen to be spinning at the panel when you talk and then you end the call. In general, however, the panel is quite comfortable and intuitive to use.

    - Snap flatter sound compared to BOSE's counterparts.
    - The beard gets stuck in the black, flat surfaces on the outside of the headphones if you remove them and let them hang around your neck in a closed (flat) position. No problem if you leave them in the folded-up position, but then they become snugly clumsy to have hanging around your neck.

    After using the PXC 550 for a few months and then getting to test the BOSE Quiet Comfort II, it seems to be more spacious BOSE's in terms of both base and intermediate registers. However, both are really good.

    Accustomed to more premium handsets (B&W PX7, M&D MW65 etc.) and having them alongside them is not advisable, extremely plastic in comparison.

    However, I imagine that they otherwise deliver well within the price range.

    Sound: good.
    NC: Really good.
    Comfortable: yes, even if you have them for a long time.
    Quality: thought it was good for 2.5 years.

    Suddenly one day, however, they could not be turned on. It clicks as usual, but they are completely dead. The guarantee is over so clearly and now they lie and scrap.

    Will buy new, because I'm addicted to the handsets, but this time it will not be Sennheiser.

    I have been using this headset for about a year and am very pleased. The sound is good, the touch controls work well, it looks good and it takes up relatively little space when folded. I have two other noise canceling headsets that I'm not so happy with. The PXC 550 turns on these two with said touch control, how it sits on your head and that it is actually possible to turn off the noise cancellation.

    Be dissatisfied at first, when the sound would have a "crackling" sound, which fortunately has ended. The NFC paddle is on the left side while the touch is on the right side.
    The sound is okay, owns a few hd599, and say that most "normal" would not be able to hear the difference between the hd599'n and pxc 550'n all in all, what's "sacrifice" here, it's the audio cancellation you want Bose 35II is a better choice but with poorer audio quality

    I would recommend these to those who take a lot of buses, the sound cancellation works perfectly and removing most of the motor sounds with music do not you hear people (depends on how much you have the music)

    A headphone that is good for the heart for me, who has defects (and many)

    The sound itself is not so much to complain about, A nice representation with a very neutral sound image, with the snap to the sharp direction (but never so much that it hurts or gets shouty), Also has very good quality to the sound with an extreme sound, even good stereo separation and soundstage to be closed headphones

    Comfort is all that shared. Some fit these perfectly, but for others with larger ears, these are rather "on-ear" which these are not meant for.
    There is also a plastic grid over the element inside the earphone that can cut against the ear if you have the misfortune, which makes them a horrible experience for some. Fortunately, I did not experience any of it but many do, and many complain (Sennheiser should release an update of these soon I think)
    They are also very warm around the ears. For cold climates you do not have to wear a hat but in warm climates it becomes sticky, disgusting and generally uncomfortable with them. They would have chosen better pillows

    The functions have the same history. Something I still do not understand is which button quake that got the idea that you would start the earphone with turning the handset together? for it must be the stupidest thing I know with them
    You cannot possibly use these passively with cable without the unit being running, it will always be running even if you drive with cable.
    The major disadvantage of this is that the earphone actively lowers the volume. If you plug these into an exotic amplifier and screw up the volume, the headphones will not hang, they will only lower it. If this is an EU regulation or bad software then it bothers me so incredibly.

    The ANC is not horrible, it does a good job. but it is not comfortable. Feel a bit like you should land with an airplane, Press against the ears if you are above. These were also my first ANC headphones so had no great expectations. In this case, Sony's flagship is significantly better with the ANC

    Battery life is good, actually very good and (Höll) Long. But now after 2 years, the disadvantages begin to emerge. The battery life is now not good anymore, can cope with 1 day or 2 days max while before so they could stay for almost a week on 1 charge

    Not only that, but now it's almost impossible to load them. Every time you try to charge the headphones, they will be charged in maybe 5 seconds, then they will stop charging completely. So it takes a long time to plug in and out with the cable several times until the earpiece finally loads clearly. incredibly disturbing, Which is also one of the reasons why these headphones will soon be replaced, but of which I do not know

    All in all, they get 8/10 at this team. Good earphone, Actually very good at what it can. But Sennheiser should pull in the collar and stop dropping headphones for 600,000 SEK and take one to try their wireless children and update them with new name, design and fix all the defects and errors they have had

    Sennheiser delivers a fantastic tight-fitting nap that sits wonderfully on. The sound is balanced and plays well in all registers. Through the app you see battery life and can handle the noise reduction, a small minus that you can only adjust the music that is on the device, but no major concern as Spotify has built-in EQ.
    Cheaper and better than, for example, Bose QC, recommended!

    Have owned them for 6-7 months and are generally very satisfied. Neutral and easy listening sound. Plenty of details in higher records. The base is firm and precise. Have compared these with my Bose QC30 in various situations. In the airplane, Bose wins, but in all other contexts, these Sennheiser lurks offer a better experience. The sound quality is at the top.

    The comfort is relatively good, and the handset is very light.

    Unfortunately, there are sometimes problems when I have both computer and phone connected at the same time. It happens that one unit "blocks" the other, so it is completely silent when trying to play something. This I have not experienced with other lurks.

    Otherwise nothing essential to complain about.

    bought these last week after some testing and fell for the good sound but i had to return them because the comfort was lousy for me. The robes were too small for my ears and pressed the same with the jumper that pressed against the head in a difficult way. However, it was a shame when I appreciated the sound, the functionality and the design.

    + Sound at music and movies. Good balance and clarity in the hands.
    + Good sound on the phone also, plus that the noise reduction is lowered / switched off during phone calls.
    + Design, stylish in short, unobtrusive.
    + The functionality, like the touch controls on the side of the handset, is smart

    - Comfort, they do not fit us with men's size on head and ears but are better suited for small ears :)

    I had to return mine when the comfort is A and O, they sit poorly so it does not help if they are otherwise good.

    I bought a pair of Bose QC35 II instead and they sit better.

    Neutral noise would I say, good enough to reveal differences between different mixes.

    + Sound quality
    + Range
    + Touch control works better than expected
    + NC works really well. Turns the sound off the dishwasher when standing next to, and almost even the sound from the hood, even though it has a few decimeters from the nose
    + Replaceable pillows

    - The building quality is OK, but they feel a bit fragile
    "It will get a little hot after long sessions, but it's a bit of a nature with closed naps. You can choose between isolating ambient noise or better ventilation for your ears.

    Good sound, good NC but very fragile.
    Works really well, but do not drop them absolutely in the floor. The joint between the arc (which is of metal) and the headboard itself is made of thin _plast_. It's like a match (!) Thick and 2 matches wide and really goes for nothing.
    I accidentally threw them into the floor from about 1 meter and they broke straight off. Had I known that there was a thin plastic piece between the metal bow and the hoods I would never have bought the naps. I have other similar naps (not NCs), both heavier and lighter, which I lost in the floor safely 50-100 times each and it has never happened anything at all (not the same as building quality).
    I'm in on my other pair of kids. At first, the "pairing button" stopped functioning so I could not pair them with new devices via bluetooth. The other pair broke the bow. I have glued and taped with silver tape. Only use them when I fly.

    + The sound
    + App
    + Comfort
    + Accessories (cords and connectors included)
    + NC
    + Less vigilance than Bose and Sony (imho).

    "Building quality is an epic box at places where it must be top notch.
    - You get really sweaty around your ears because of the material that lies against the ear.

    Can not recommend anyone to buy these. Very bad of Sennheiser who otherwise makes really good fools to have this poor building quality when they are so expensive.
    Building quality draws down the rating that would otherwise be 8/10.

    The following can be said about them:
    * They are easy
    * They are Pleasant (assuming you do not have too big ears)
    * They last forever without charge (the 30-hour statement seems to be voting)
    * You get by plane adapter as well as usb and stereo jack cables.
    * You can connect multiple sources at the same time.
    * You can start or stop the music without opening the phone.
    * NFC
    etc.

    In other words, the functionality is excellent.

    Meeeen, why not full score? The treble is actually surprisingly weak. You have certain equalizer presets you can play with, but the problem never disappears. In fact, the Audio Technicass ATH M50 has far better sound and costs less than half. Of course, they do not have all of the features mentioned above. But the difference in sound quality is so great that even I heard it, I'm not an audio file.

    In other words, you pay for the functionality, ie NFC and Bluetooth, as well as excellent battery life. However, sound quality is not available.

    You might think that the problem is bluetooth. I also tested with cables, jack as well as USB, if the sound was better on cable or not good to say, but there is no doubt that my colleague ATH M50 was superior better anyway.

    If you can afford to have both so by all means, have these in addition to some decent on cable, but if this with cable is not a big deal for you, get some traditional headphones, the sound is better. Not to mention that the price is much lower.

    I have these napkins at work and as far as noise and noise reduction are concerned they are good at it but they are not very well-being, they are quickly hot on the ears and the function that they turn off by turning a cover is a design gimmick that is very bad in practice . It's good that as the headset is pairing both with computer and mobile at the same time, never got a phone call while I had Skype / Hangouts conversation running so I do not really know how they react.

    I had at home Bose Quiet Comfort 35, Plantronics BackBeat Pro (Sennheiser Momentum M2, Sennheiser PXC 500 and Sony MDR-1000X at the same time to compare. Bose is so good that I had bought home just them, I had been so pleased that I had kept them. So I'm glad I did not do that side by side, so Sony won quite easily.

    Bose was more beautiful to wear, but Sony was good two just a little snap after. Boses construction where the diaphragms are angled inside the hoods is what made them snap more beautiful, feels like the ear does not touch the napkins at all and thus neither gets sore or hot. On all other points, though, Sony thought I was best or in any case shared, so overall it was not a hard choice.

    Sony had the nicest sound image (at least unplayed), and then I was not looking for unscrambled reference songs without a comfortable sound image that works for many genres and is not hard to listen for 15 hours on a long long flight. They also had the best noise reduction and most / best features. Just the function of folding your hand over one handset to temporarily switch from active noise reduction to speech amplification could bring the decision down now that I know how useful it is.

    Really nice and balanced sound, nice design, good blueprint, good touch to pause, answer et.c with. Should I say something negative, it's relatively short headband, app that only supports Tidal and not Spotify, as well as unnecessarily stuffy box with padding, which you still throw directly. A cannon product by the way. 👍

    Sick happy with these Really good sound, good bass, the touch panel on the side works out of expectation, poor battery life, good quality and breathability. Sitting very nice they do too. NC works really well. Tested both bose 35 2 and Sony x1000. Bose is best on NC and Sony has a bit broader bass. The Pxc 550 won me because of better sound, good looking and even more affordable. Very pleased!

    My hope was that I could use these without an equalizer, but the bass is too weak for my taste. What I had understood, these had a built-in EQ, but that statement is not correct. There are 3 different EQ modes built-in: Club, Movie and Speech, but none of these have any major effect on the sound. In the app, there is an equalizer, but this only works if you listen to music directly through the app - and the app does not support for example. Spotify, without just TIDAL and MP3 files stored directly on the phone. Noise Canceling works well to remove low frequencies (eg engine noise) but does not filter out other frequencies (eg voices).

    In summary: These are not for you who like a really deep bass, but if you're looking for realistic audio reproduction with a lot of details, these are more than approved.

    Looked for a pair of noice canceling bluetooth headphones. Although music via bluetooth is not really a great experience, I'm still right in terms of sound quality. Pretty soon, the choice was to stand between Bose QuietComfort 35 II, Sony MDR-1000X and Sennheiser PXC 550.

    Three cannonbreak cheeks, but my choice became Sennheiser. Why?
    + Best sound
    + Comfortable (not as comfortable as Bose, but still)
    + Sufficient sound attenuation (again, not quite as good as Bose)
    + Lowest price

    I have used the napkins for just over a month now and have not found anything negative to write about them.

    Is very sensitive when it comes to sound and wants the best.
    Took more different headphones before I decided. Between these Bose QC 35II and BO H9, Mediamarkt was kind enough and let me test all three.

    The choice was on the PXC 550. The main reason was that a sound via Blutooth was a class better on these than the other two. Bass, middle register and treble, only better. With the app provided by Sennheiser, you can set the sound just the way you want it. Also works with hat on wintertime.

    The sound +
    Battery +
    + Easy to set
    + Nice fools against the ears and head
    + The sound again

    -Underly complicated to switch on and off
    -Easy easy pause music when you want to raise sound or change song with touch on right ear cover.

    Overall: Best I Own! Better sound than the Bose and AKG I had before. And again: best sound quality in the class via Blutooth.

    First to the packaging:
    When opened, it feels very exclusive. The padding is the best i way. If you throw the box from a high house, the product will be ready.

    I bought the headphones yesterday and have listened for about 15 hours of music uninterrupted except when I slept a few hours. The battery is very good. The range is about 50m through three 45cm thick walls from a macbook pro.

    I chose between bose qc 35 II, this and momentum. I realized quite quickly that the momentum's higher sound quality will be destroyed by my relieving sound as I rarely listen in quiet environments.

    Bose qc 35 II had much poorer sound quality on both songs, but above all the bass when I listened to my favorite techno. Additionally, the noise canceling (NC) function is annoying when it is pushing and pressing. The PXC 550 does not suffer from this at all.

    The NC function I have tested in an old saab that lacks a half exhaust pipe and has holes in the manifold. It mulls and sounds so you become deaf. To overcome that noise, it requires at least 1 12 "JBL bass box with a powerful finish. When the chair shakes, you no longer hear the car. Then you understand how it sounds. With the NC on the PXC 550, almost all engine noise disappears, you hear a cozy sound As some music easily robs, all muller disappears.

    Sound quality is almost always good. However, some techno songs are denied but otherwise everything sounds amazing.

    The features are great, nothing to complain about, everything works clockwise with my MB pro, samsung lur, samsung smarttv and desktop computer. Additionally, being able to connect to two devices at the same time is perfect, otherwise you will never hear anyone ringing or knocking on the door. (Has digital ring clock connected with wifi to audio system)

    Everything with these tricks is good, I am very pleased. If you get to the bad pages then I can only complain about the noise level. I who are a little injured by the car and various other engines over the years have to drive the naps at 80% to hear and 90% are right. My threaded old naps play higher but it's not the whole world.

    Additionally, I added that I spent 3 days and a total of 6 hours in different stores before I could decide which of all wireless NC headphones was the best. With a budget of 4000 kr and have tested everything from 800kr-5500 kr, I thought these were the best.

    First bought Sony Wh1000m2, which became supershelf, but was not entirely satisfied with them for a couple of reasons.
    If you prefer to listen to metal of different kinds, I can strongly recommend these instead.

    The comfort 9/10 e suverän, weighs less than the competitors and is comfortable over the ears, however, gets warmer and sweatier to wear after a couple of hours than the Sonylur.

    Bluetooth is 10/10 fast connection to iphone7 when turned on (turn on and off by turning in / out the naps)

    The sound 9/10
    Clear sound with good bass, airier and wider sound image than Sony Wh1000m2, hence I chose these instead
    Feels crispier and livelier, the only downside to sonys is that they may be scary some tones at max volume when the treble is higher.

    Cruel battery life, up to 30h

    Advantage of completely turning off NC will also get richer sound without active NC. In addition, the battery stays in the off position.

    Should you buy napkins for the NC function, wh1000m2 is wiser (maybe best in class) but for my part, it was less important for the sound quality to be higher prio.

    Fewer features than wh1000m2 but most missing there, I do not need anyway, nothing I miss.

    Inferior slide / touch function on the side of the right handset to swap song, pause, fastspoil, raise volume on them than on wh1000m2

    The app is not as good as wh1000m2 to iphone and the equalizer does not work for spotify, but there are other audio enhancements

    One major disadvantage for me with wh1000m2 is a slightly uncomfortable feeling, kind of a pressure in your ears like on an aircraft created by the active NC
    I do not experience this problem with these!

    They are also better and more stable when moving.

    Do you listen mainly to australian and classical music, wh1000m2 is more varied, a fuller and warmer sound, as said, these are better for hard rock

    In addition, they are currently 1500: - cheaper than sonys

    Do they like it sharply. Not as good Noise Reduction as Bose, but like they do not totally shut out all other sounds that Bose does. Love to turn them off easily by turning the covers inwards. Big plus also for touch control for audio and song change. Perfect commuter headphones. Recommended. Took them on a drive on the 2490 Web Hall. Works fine with multiple devices. Voice info and the app are well lull-lull, but you can talk about it.

    Very pleased with my headphones. Have listened for about 10 hours in total since I got them home. The battery life is good, the sound is clockwise. Good in all registers. The base is right, just like all Sennheiser products. If you want a lot of bass, you can go to someone else, if you want good sound in all modes, choose these.

    Noisegard also works very well, they shut out most of the sound around you. There is nothing to complain about there.

    Touch pad: one on the right ear also works very well. Raises and lowers the volume easily, similar to song changes.

    Building quality is good. They feel sturdy and not plastic at all. Good material choice that gives a sense of high quality. They look bigger in the picture than they are in reality. Very nice and smooth. The storage bag you bring is perfect for the trip when you want to store your naps in the bag.

    The fit is good, beautiful ear cushions. If you have big ears like me, it may be on the verge that the headphones go over your ears. At worst, they may lie slightly on any part of the ear if you have large ears. However, it does not matter to me, the sound is good and they are good anyway. The best part is if you can test the napkins before buying to see if you think fit fits you. As many reviews write, it may get hot after one hour.

    Final word: Very pleased with the headphones overlay. The sound is very good for being bluetooth headphones. Good in all records, with just a lot of bass. The microphone works perfectly well when talking. The fit is good and they fit well on the head. May get hot on your ears after an hour. I who have an iPhone 7 and are tired of sharing charger for headphones and headphones will never go back to the cord again. Blåland is incredibly convenient, but then the sound will not get worse. These fools deliver when it comes to the sound.

    Highly recommend these if you are looking for wireless fools in this price range.

    A disappointment!
    Do not waste money on these.
    I'm now completely saved by Sony MDR 1000x ... Absolutely amazing tricks simply.

    Do you have discerning ears? Then beware of these tricks as they disstar at slightly higher volumes and at frequencies around the upper midrange / treble.

    There is a clear signal, but a disappointment, since the volume can not be increased significantly before they start delivering unpleasant sound at the upper middle register / treble.
    Not recommended for music enjoyment. I got tired after about half an hour.
    Have tried to adjust the sound via AppTune without any satisfactory result.
    Purchased these as an upgrade from the Philips SHB9850NC, but I think that has been a nerve reduction, especially with regard to sound reproduction, where the Philips SHB9850NC performs an excellent job at higher and lower volume volumes, but also has excellent Noise canceling. And for almost one third of what these Sennheiser cost!
    The quality sense is very good and is comfortable to wear.
    The source of sound I used is Tidal HiFi via Bluetooth with aptX support.
    Right now I'm just shaking my head over that these fools have actually been the best in the test in the magazine "HiFi and music" No. 11 years 16. This is a mystery to me.
    Gets only 2 stars from me. Sharpening Sennheiser!

    Have not had time to listen to them completely yet, but already "out of box" so it is better sound quality than my last Momentum v1, very much more bass which can be interpreted as both good and bad. Easy to pair via Bluetooth. Got hold of them at a lower price than what we've just now making them much more affordable. Comfy as hell haha. But yes, do not want to add this sum to headphones so you do not want to have quality simply ... Just keep them screaming robust quality.
    The only negative is that Apple is not compliant with their hi-fi codec, but it's Apple's problem, not Sennheiser.

    Superb soundstage (which can be adjusted as you want in the app) and very good sound. You hear clear all the instruments of not only the right - left without the depth, height, and around, you hear details you never heard before (Momentum 2 cable is only slightly better sound but these have much better soundstage as it is fun to listen to) . Can be connected to two drive at the same time so you can play on your computer and answer the phone (the device whose sound activated last heard). Battery lasts 30 hours, the volume of calls is very good in both directions. Good range and fast connectivity and the latest Bluetooth. NC is good (Sony, and Bose is a little better but not much) firm pillows are already making good passive insulation so it is not extreme contrast with the NC. They are a bit hot and place of ears are ok but could have been a little larger (typical Sennheiser). Wireless should raise the volume more, with cable, they play much stronger, but the quality of both is almost evenly (very good bt). Ladas via micro USB and you can listen to music through the same cable for charging with your computer.
