Sennheiser PXC 550
Next time you're flying, on the train or blowing leaves with your new leaf blower, cocoon yourself in a pair of wireless, noise-cancelling headphones like the top-of-the-range Sennheiser PXC 550. Noise-cancelling headphones use technology that cleverly neutralise ambient sound waves so that all you hear in the headphones is the sound of music and not the surrounding hum and hubbub of what's around you. In fact, with noise cancelling switched on, you don’t even have to listen to music to enjoy the tranquil silence they provide.
The collapsible PXC 550s are Bluetooth equipped and run for up to 30 hours on a single charge. These cans are not only supremely comfortable and ideal for long-haul flights but they sound truly sensational and come with arguably the most effective noise-cancelling tech on the market. They’re also equipped with touch-sensitive ear cups that provide track skipping and volume adjustment, plus a cable for airlines that don’t allow Bluetooth devices. An essential piece of travel kit.
