Die Ohrmuscheln sind leider sehr klein. Ich habe etwa mittelgroße Ohren und mir haben die Kopfhörer nicht wirklich gepasst. Ich habe beim tragen zwar keine Schmerzen gehabt, aber irgendwie haben die Kopfhörer ein konstantes Gefühl des Unwohlseins ausgelöst.
Der Klang der Kopfhörer ist gut, aber die neuen Momentum 3 von Sennheiser haben meiner Meinsung nach einen besseren Sound. In der Standerdeinstellung sind die PXC 550-II jedoch etwas ausgewogener. Für Hip-Hop und Rock ist der Klang sehr gut. Für Techno oder andere basslastige Musik würde ich eher zu den Momentum greifen, weil weniger mit dem EQ nachgebessert werden muss.
Ebenfalls hat mir gar nicht gefallen, dass die Kopfhörer bei der Verwendung über PC und aktivierten Mikrofon in eine Art Telefonie-Modus gehen. Bei diesem Modus wird das Audio Signal extrem komprimiert und hört sich wirklich fürchterlich an. Ich vermute diese Funktion ist dafür gedacht, dass bei Bluetooth die Bandbreite für das gleichzeitige Übertragen von Musik und Sprache nicht ausreicht. Da die Bandbreite von USB jedoch viel höher ist, macht diese Funktion bei der PC-Verbindung gar keinen Sinn und schränkt den Anwendungsumfang (zB als Gamer-Headset) enorm ein.
Das ANC ist wirklich sehr gut. Subjektiv sogar besser als bei den Momentum 3.
Alles in allem habe ich die Kopfhörer schweren Herzens wegen dem schlechten Tragekomfort wieder zurück geschickt.
PS: Die Amazon-Vine Bewertungen sind meist totaler Unfug, weil für die Tester das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis keine Rolle spielt.
The noise cancellation is just not on the level of Bose QCs or NC 700 , and the sound is not as good as on the Bose or on Sony 1000XM3. I don't get a seal around my ears (possibly because I wear glasses, but the headphones couldn't answer the question, why pick this over the alternatives?
I also had issues pairing with more than one device, and then whilst connected to the one phone, I could listen to music, but when I received a phone call, the headphones couldn't pick it up. Poor tbh, which is a shame because I really wanted to like them.
I was looking forward to the updated model of the pxc 550 which I very much enjoyed wearing. Unfortunately on receipt the hinges on the headphones seemed to creak and made worse when wearing glasses, had to return in the end as the creaking sound overpowered the music! Also seems more plasticky than the previous editions. Save yourself over a hundred pounds and buy the original Model
I really wanted to like these as I've been searching for months for the right headset. I've bought and return many ear buds and I've come to the conclusion ear buds are not for me. So these have good specs and great reviews, so I went for them.
Firstly, sound quality is good. If you only want them for music then you'll probably be happy, but I need more from my headphones. I'm not an audiophile so won't talk about highs/lows bass etc but they were good enough for me.
What is important for me though is call quality, and this is where I had problems. Even though this has three mics, I was told I sounded like I was in a tunnel so this was a bit of an issue. However I decided it wasn't a big issue. Next though I was trying to make a call via my phone and the Bluetooth kept on disconnecting, this was more of an issue. Finally while on calls the headset dropped out and so I had to revert to just my phone.
A final point on noise cancellation, I can't say it was anything special so was a bit disappointed. It does an OK of blocking out some background noise but I expected more - maybe my expectations where too high though!
So if you only listen to music then they're fine. But if use them calls then I suspect you'll be disappointed.
Really difficult to know what overall rating to give these headphones! They're a mixed bag, and whether they're a good choice really depends on your priorities.
Starting with the best features, then moving to the more disappointing...
1) The excellent
Put simply: voice quality. This was the priority for me (like so many of us in 2020/1 who want the best possible experience on phone and video calls). I researched extensively and was surprised how many manufacturers (and reviewers) don't treat voice quality as a priority. When you listen specifically to microphone samples (try the DHRME channel on YouTube), you realise how many 'highly rated' headphones have a microphone that simply is not fit for purpose.
These Sennheisers are excellent in that respect. Everyone I talk to can hear me very clearly, and vice versa. As long as you have access to a Windows PC, you can also adjust the level of "side tone", i.e. how much of your voice is fed back into the earphones. (Without this, it's a bit disconcerting not to be able to properly hear your own voice while you talk.) A shame though that you can't do this from a phone or a Linux device - the only way to do it is by connecting a USB cable to a Windows device.
2) The decent
The active noise cancellation is not bad. It acceptably cuts out annoying noise in my environment, although it isn't the noisiest. There definitely are headphones on the market with better ANC, but as I say, this comes at the cost of poor voice quality. (If I was buying now though, I might check out the Sony XM4s again with their newest firmware which seems to have improved voice quality.)
Comfort is pretty good. You might feel a bit warm after extended use, but not really sore, even with glasses.
Battery life is good - no problem using them all day. The charging port is Micro USB rather than USB-C: an issue which motivates some people to a burning fervour, but not me.
3) The bad
The headphones can connect to two devices at once, but Sennheiser has really messed up the implementation of this. Rather than mixing the sound between the two devices, it tries to actively switch, something which is jarring and slow. Let's say you're listening to music on your phone, and your PC makes a ping sound when an email sound comes in. My cheap Taotronics headphones handled this fine: you simply hear the ping over the top of the music, which goes on playing.
So surely this will work just fine on the far more expensive Sennheisers, right? Wrong. What, in fact, happens in this scenario? The music stops. The ping sound is played. 10-15 seconds pass in silence. And finally the music starts again. It's maddening. So you'll either end up disabling most of the sounds on Windows, or just keeping the headphones connected to one device at once.
With that off my chest, I'm still overall not unhappy I bought these - but I would recommend them only if your #1 requirement is call quality.
Everything is decent, sound quality is way crispier than sony xm4s that's for sure, nothing seems muiffled, however, it does seem a bit quiet with the default preset, but after messing with it it turns out fine.
ANC is alright, nothing too special, but good enough to isolate enough noise.
Bluetooth connectivity is annoying, at first it doesn't connect properly to the PC and you have to hold the effect control button to pair it to the PC, which even then takes a while, but afterwards it's fine to reconnect.
Comfort is also decent but the clamping force is slightly annoying but the low weight evens it out and so it won't really hurt after hours of use, just a bit rough on the jaw at first.
Didn't have these long before returning. Quality felt good, however connectivity issues from the start. Taken several issues to pair with phone using Bluetooth, however I regularly use some wireless Sony and Huawei earphones without issue. Wired headphone mode useless did not work with either xperia 1 ii, huawei p30 or p10 so no good if you want low latency for games, normal headphones work fine with all three.
queste cuffie li sto usando da circa 2 settimane. PREGI: suono è veramente cristallino, di altissima qualità. sia alti sia bassi. il design è particolare, non troppo appariscente (se siete una persona a qui non piace fare lo sborrone in giro queste cuffie sono perfette per voi), molto comode non stancano orecchi, padiglioni spaziosi, cuscinetti molto morbidi, piacevole al tocco la plastica gommata. DIFETTI: SOFTWARE PESSIMO!!! app pessima, scomoda per usare, povera, lenta. la SMART PAUSE dimenticatevela! non funziona, o meglio funziona in modo errato, mette in pausa il brano appena muovete la testa, il brano parte si ferma parte si ferma noooo da disattivare subito! le istruzioni (solo in inglese) molto poco chiare, sintetiche, e sto parlando di istruzioni scaricate dal sito. appena collego (con tantissima fatica) le cuffie al mio PC si blocca tutto. non scherzo e non esagero. in conclusione - secondo me queste cuffie dovrebbero costare intorno 100€ non di piu! il software (al di la della app) dovrebbe essere assolutamente rivisto!!! mi manca veramente "poco così" per chiedere il rimborso! anche perche li ho pagate ben 320€ !!! sconsigliatissimo, a finche non costeranno 100€ P.S. assistenza in Italia è pari a zero. ho mandato la e mail al centro sennheiser una settimana fa per risolvere il problema del smart pause non mi hanno mai risposto!
While they are good headphones, I'm not too impressed by how loud they are, you can install an app to play with settings, but tbh the app isn't great. Also the twist to turn on and off feature is one of the most infuriating things I've dealt with.
Ich möchte betonen, dass ich hier keinerlei Werbung betreibe. Einst möchte ich lediglich klar stellen, dass meine bisherigen Bluetooth-Kopfhörer einen eindeutig besseren und hochwertigeren Eindruck machen und ich mit diesen im Vergleich viel zufriedener bin.
- ANC ist nicht so gut, wie mit dem Sony Modell, das muss man ganz klar sagen. - Klangqualität ist gut wenn auch gegenüber meinen bisherigen Kopfhörern keine Offenbarung, dennoch klar besser mit soliden Bässen und Höhen. - Tragekomfort ist gut, Passt mir knapp. Habe schon recht große Ohren. Nichts für sehr große Ohren. da ist die Bose NC700 nochmal ein Stück besser, vor allem im Komfort. - Sprachqualität ist sehr gut. Das ist bis jetzt der beste Kopfhörer mit der Sprachqualität neben der Bose NC700 - Kein USB-C aber dafür ein Micro USB Anschluss hahahaha - Kopfhörer hat aptx Low Latency !!! - Relativ geringe Lautstärke - ist dass normal und so gewollt ?
Fazit: Die Sennheiser PXC 550-II gehen definitiv zurück. Preis-Leistungsverhältnis ist übertrieben hoch. In der Preisklasse bzw. darunter gibt es bessere Kopfhörer
