SmartHouse - - SOUND -

When you are jump­ing on and off planes as much as I do there is one piece of kit that is crit­i­cal: noise can­celling head­phones.

Sennheiser mar­ried noise can­celling and Blue­tooth for the first time in its award-win­ning Mo­men­tum 2.0 Wire­less head­phones. With the PXC550 they have taken noise can­celling to a new level while im­prov­ing the sound out­put and func­tion­al­ity.

In fact there are sev­eral things to like about the PX550’s, for one I like the head­band which is ba­nana-shaped with two cups on ei­ther end that fit snug­gly over the ears. If you fall asleep with th­ese head­phones on you are not go­ing to wake up with sore ears. Su­pe­rior in sev­eral ways to the Bose Qui­etCom­fort head­phones, the PXC 550’s are just 227g in weight.

Sound-wise th­ese head­phones can be eas­ily ac­ti­vated by a switch above the Blue­tooth pair­ing but­ton which is on the right side of the head­phones along with a touch sen­si­tive pad. All you have to do to change tracks or vol­ume is stroke the head­phones. Very neat!
