Travel with superior audio
The new PXC 550-II Wireless is upgraded with Bluetooth 5.0 compatibility and support for the high-quality AAC codec. Alongside aptXTM support, these enhancements help to deliver uncompromised Sennheiser sound quality. Music and movies can be enjoyed with outstanding clarity, balance and dynamics, while support for aptXTM Low Latency ensures audio stays in perfect sync with onscreen media. And no matter where a journey takes the listener, the headphones’ active noise cancellation seamlessly adapts to ambient noise levels to provide the exact level of suppression needed – even in challenging outdoor environments, thanks to a new Anti-Wind ANC setting.

The PXC 550-II Wireless also features a triple microphone array that makes it easy to stay connected while on the move: Sennheiser’s expertise in microphone technology ensures unrivalled speech clarity when giving voice commands or making calls – even in busy locations.

Enjoy a smarter, connected experience
The PXC 550-II Wireless has been designed to anticipate the user’s needs and to make every interaction utterly intuitive: Take control via a touch pad on the right earcup to adjust volume, play, pause or skip tracks, or to accept calls at a touch. The headphones automatically turn on and connect via Bluetooth as they are unfolded. Similarly, the Smart Pause feature senses when the listener takes off the PXC 550-II Wireless and automatically pauses the audio – resuming without missing a beat when put back on.

The app also allows the user to adjust noise cancellation and keep the headphones up to date with the latest firmware.

Engineered for more comfortable journey
With up to 20 hours of battery life with headphones connected via Bluetooth and ANC switched on, and up to 30 hours when using ANC and a wired connection, the PXC 550-II Wireless can travel the world on a single charge. To ensure comfort during long trips, the advanced ergonomic design includes a padded synthetic leather headband, and rotating earcups that make it easy to achieve a perfect fit. Premium, lightweight materials such as the brushed black stainless steel used on the robust hinges and sliders prevent fatigue when wearing – and also help make the PXC 550-II Wireless effortlessly portable. With a fold-flat design and a compact travel case created to slip into a bag or airline seat back, it’s the perfect companion for travelling in style.

The PXC 550-II Wireless will be available from October for £299 (MSRP).
