German audio brand Sennheiser on Wednesday launched its new headphones ‘PXC 550-II’ for Rs 29,990 in India. The new headphones, available from today, are Sennheiser’s challenger to Sony WH-1000XM3 and Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700. These headphones are designed to offer intuitive experience to those who travel frequently. The headphones come with adaptive noise cancellation to seamlessly adjust the suppression of the ambient noise.

“PXC 550-II is built to offer the best in class audio for both music and calls. This headset has been created to provide an unrivalled experience of sound quality and wireless freedom to its consumers on the go,” Kapil Gulati, Director, Consumer Segment, Sennheiser Electronics India, said in a statement. “The PXC 550-II is the right blend of superior comfort, style, elegance, and sound output. This extraordinary headset is going to revolutionize the way we experience sound as well as ambient noise and will be taking the audio experience to the next level,” he added.

The PXC 550-II has adaptive noise cancellation with its Anti-Wind ANC setting. The PXC 550-II Wireless comes with Bluetooth 5.0 compatibility and AAC codec support for superior wireless listening, while a new Voice Assistant button provides one-touch access to voice assistants such as Siri, Google Assistant, and Amazon Alexa.

The PXC 550-II Wireless also features a triple microphone array that makes it easy to stay connected. The Bluetooth headphone has a touchpad on the right earcup to adjust volume, play, pause or skip tracks, or to accept calls.

The headphones automatically turn on and connect via Bluetooth as they are unfolded. Similarly, the Smart Pause feature senses when the listener takes off the PXC 550-II Wireless and automatically pauses the audio.

It features a Voice Assistant button that offers one-touch access to voice assistants such as Siri, Google Assistant, and Amazon Alexa. Users can also tailor the sound setting using Sennheiser’s Smart Control app.

The headphones offer up to 20 hours of battery life with it connected via Bluetooth and ANC switched on, and up to 30 hours when using ANC and a wired connection.

The competition in the true wireless headphones market has become intense. While Sony had been the benchmark, the Sennheiser PXC 550-II wants to challenge both Sony and Samsung. The Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 is available for Rs 34,500. The Sony WH-1000XM3 is priced at Rs 29,990. This is in the same ballpark as other models, which makes it competitive. This comes while Sennheiser also sells Momentum 3 wireless for Rs 34,990.
