SENNHEISER MM 550-X $499.95

Business Traveler (USA) - - TECH SAVVY -

The com­bi­na­tion of wire­less op­er­a­tion and ac­tive noise re­duc­tion is a ma­jor sell­ing point for th­ese high-end cans, as is the built-in bat­tery (recharge­able over USB) and its weight (just over 6 oz.). Sound-wise, Sennheiser has done a great job – if your mu­sic source has the new Blue­tooth apt-X codec, you’ll get even bet­ter wire­less sound. Noise-can­cel­ing is ac­ti­vated by a but­ton on the right earcup – it works par­tic­u­larly well with low fre­quen­cies.

PROS Talk-through switch lets you hear ex­ter­nal noise

CONS There are few de­vices that can take ad­van­tage of the Blue­tooth apt-X fea­ture
