You've travelled a lot, in every class, but nothing really compares to the experience of travelling with a pair of Sennheisers as your noise cancelling headphones.

Upgrade Your Journey

The soundtrack to your journey just got richer and more immersive. The PXC 550 Wireless was developed by the leader in audio that has been continuously setting trends in this industry for over 70 years: Sennheiser. So, there is no compromising on the sound: deep, crisp, authentic and powerful at any volume. With its exceptionally high-quality performance, the PXC 550 Wireless makes your favourite album or movie come alive.

Your Own Audio Lounge

The world can be a noisy place. With the PXC 550 Wireless you can just shut the door on it. Featuring Sennheiser’s NoiseGard Hybrid adaptive noise cancelling it creates your own aural space in even the most chaotic of environments: The louder the noise around you, the stronger it is cancelled, giving you the most comfortable listening experience. While the PXC 550 Wireless’s extraordinary battery life of up to 30 hours of continuous use means you can span the globe on a single charge without leaving your private audio lounge.

Freedom of Movement

Both travelling and music feel best when you can move freely. The PXC 550 Wireless lets you do just that. Instead of a cable it features some of the finest and best-sounding solutions in high-tech transmission connecting the headset featuring and Near Field Communication (NFC) enabled pairing the PXC 550 Wireless with the respective mobile device is every bit as fun as listening to it. Still, the PXC 550 Wireless can also be used with a cable that is included.

Intuitively Control

The PXC 550 Wireless offers unrivalled speech clarity for personal and business calls. Identifying and filtering out all ambient noise it makes sure you will be perfectly understood at the other end of the line, no matter how busy your environment. To operate your communication centre, touch-sensitive trackpads are located on the earcups. Thus, controlling your sounds feels natural and intuitive.

Shape of Comfort

One of the most lightweight headsets in the industry the PXC 550 Wireless is designed for the longest of listening sessions and packaged for ultra portability. To guarantee the best fit possible, we have measured hundreds of ears and designed the headset accordingly with the overall size, the special shape of the earpads, and the headband’s architecture. The fold-flat collapsible frame enables it to discreetly fold away into the stylish, compact travel case. Superior comfort and class-leading design: the best of both worlds.

Smart Features

Integrated into the earcups, the touch sensitive trackpad gives complete control on the move, from volume control to skipping a track to taking a call - all with the swipe of a finger. The PXC 550 Wireless has a built-in limiter that avoids sudden and extreme sound level peaks, e.g. when you are connected to an in-flight entertainment system that is also used for crew announcements.

The PXC 550 Wireless is fully compatible with CapTune, Sennheiser's premium quality music player and powerful sound tuning app to perfectly adjust the feel of your music to your personal preference. The headphones seamlessly anticipate your needs by powering on as you unfold, automatically pausing your track when you remove it and switching off when you fold it away.


The PXC 550 comes is supplied with inline remote control,carry case, USB cable, IFE adapters, quick setup and safety guide

Press Reviews

  • 'Sennheiser offers talented wireless noise-cancellers at an even more attractive price point... Pleasing transparency for the price, top timing, clear and dynamic sound, smart, minimalist design and effective noise-cancellation.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine Sep 2016)

  • 'Despite all the technology crammed into the cups, they are surprisingly trim. Their tastefully classic matte black finish looks thoroughly suited to sit atop the head of Sennheiser’s target audience, presumably City AM or Financial Times readers.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine Sep 2016)

  • 'The presentation is fair and proportionate, the ambient instrumentals sounding solid and rounded, but never without energy or bite. The drivers dig deep when the majestic underlying bass comes in.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine Sep 2016)

  • 'The thick leather pads hug your ears – snug, not too oppressive – and do a good job blocking out external noise. That level of isolation – the ‘alone time’ promised by manufacturers – is taken further by two levels of NoiseGard Hybrid active noise-cancellation, the same technology featured in the Momentums... Thanks to the Sennheiser’s roomy, open soundstage and dependable footing, the presentation is arranged and orderly; each note hits the mark within a presentation that sounds naturally, almost effortlessly, together.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine Sep 2016)

  • 'While certainly rich, it errs just on the right side of overstated, and is careful not to slow rhythms or weigh down dynamics. Balance still favours the low-end through the wire, albeit there’s a noticeable leg-up in refinement. It’s not massive, though, and that’s only further testament to the maturity of the Sennheiser’s wireless performance. We’ve said that before.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine Sep 2016)
