Bottom Line
The Sennheiser PXC 550-II are a high-value pair of active noise cancelling (ANC) headphones. Listeners in need of a lightweight, effective ANC solution should get these. The companion application could use some work, but it’s functional and allows access to firmware updates. Listeners who don’t need easy access to their voice assistant, and who don’t care for AAC support may want to save by getting the first-generation PXC 550. There’s a lot to love about the Sennheiser Momentum 3 Wireless
