Everyone has different preferences and priorities, so to make choosing easier we have attempted to give a frank review of the products. Let's start with the Sennheiser HD 598 SR Open-Back. Are you an audiophile that only wants the very best when you listen to music? Then you’re going to love these open-back design headphones. They’re over-ear headphones with open back, and the sound quality is exceptional.
Next let's have a look at the Sennheiser PXC 550 Wireless. Next up is a pair of headphones specially designed for business travelers. They are foldable, which makes them easy to bring with you wherever you go.
The sound is natural and balanced and the headphones are wired because in this case, Bluetooth would just compromise the sound too much. The headphones use so-called E.A.R. technology, which stands for ‘Ergonomic Acoustic Refinement’, which channels the sound directly into your ears. This is supposed to give you a “more ‘in room’ like listening experience”.
These noise-cancelling headphones have Bluetooth so that you don’t have to be constantly annoyed by a cord, and they offer up to 30 hours battery life on a single charge, which is remarkable!
