Its latest offering of headphones and earbuds are the best the brand has ever made — and perfect for someone on your holiday gifting list. From the music obsessive to the constant traveler or even the gym junky, these genuinely stunning devices have the makings of a perfect holiday gift. From noise-canceling to wirelessly connected, the new generation of Sennheiser headphones are a cut above. Sennheiser’s line up has a lot of different features to offer, so here is our breakdown of the headphones you should be considering this holiday season and what sets them apart — maybe you should put a pair on your own list.
PXC 550 II
These are the perfect upgrade for your travel headphones — and they can go even further. The adaptive noise cancellation means they adjust automatically based on the ambient noise around you. The PXC 550 II can also last up to 30 hours depending on how you use them — with that charge, you can fly from London to Hong Kong and back again. To keep your flight as smooth as possible, you also have a single button on the headphones to access your smartphone’s AI helper.
With an intuitive design and superior sound, these headphones will keep your music flowing. With soft ear-pads and headband crafted from genuine leather to ensure exceptional comfort and auto smart pause — you will never miss a beat no matter how long you are listening. They also come easy to pair right of the box — and who needs instuctions when they come equipped with an easy to understand three-button interface.
Momentum True Wireless
Uncompromised sound performance, state-of-the-art technology and refined design all come together in these premium earbuds that will change the way you listen to music on the go or at the office. The transparent hearing keeps you aware of your surroundings while the simple touch controls on the earbuds make them simple to control without taking out your device. The Momentum True Wireless have four hours of battery life, but with the sleek charging case, you can get another 12 hours before plugging in.
