The PXC 550 is one of Sennheiser’s top-of-the-line models of headsets geared for business travelers and boasting the best noise cancellation with NoiseGard. You’ll instantly be able to tune out unwanted ambient sound as soon as you pop these on whether you’re in flight, in transit, or in the midst of a busy neighborhood.

While Sennheiser claims the PXC 550 can last up to 30 hours on a single charge, our review suggests that 20 hours is more realistic when you’re tuned in wirelessly with active-noise canceling employed. Either way, you’ll have enough juice for a whole day and on the off chance that ‘s not enough, you can opt for a passive listening experience with the provision of an audio cable and port.
