Traveling the world may sound glamorous, and many moments are indeed. However let’s not pretend that there aren’t just as many moments where you begin questioning whether all the headaches are worth it!

With every year that passes it seems travel, especially international travel, is becoming more hectic and increasingly difficult to bear. From standing in lines that rival a Disney ride, to being seated beside passengers you wouldn’t wish upon your worst enemy, the physical act of travel is chaotic, and I lust over the experience of first class.

My favorite music / movie transports me away from my surroundings each time. However airline headphones don’t exactly block out the noise. My last flight I was seated in a row with not one, or even two, but three crying infants and a man which had to be going for a Guinness World Record of loudest snorer.

Already suffering from a headache I disobeyed the fasten seat belt sign as I made a quick grab of my headphones from the overhead luggage. After two or three minutes channeling my inner scout to untie a sequence of knots, I did find some reprieve, though had to wonder when Lorde had added young crying backup singers to her tracks.

Block Out the Noise

I long for the day when I win the lottery and can fly First Class indefinitely however I am somewhat reluctant to purchase the higher priced ticket for now in the fear I could never go back to the mortal cabin.

It’s amazing how far the little extras associated with First Class can go to providing you with a more enjoyable experience. And when you exit you get a glimpse of all those fancy additions they are given, like compression socks, slippers, pajamas, and those seemingly much more high tech headphones. Upon seeing them on my last flight I was jealous enough that I finally looked into replacing my free tangled mess given to me by the flight attendant.

I came across Sennheiser’s PXC 550 Wireless noise cancelling headphones. A German based company that specialises in premium audio products, there are headphones, and then there are these.

Sennheiser’s PXC 550 Wireless

Wireless headphones are tricky in that very rarely can you find a set that reproduces incredible sound while providing top of the line noise cancellation and long battery life. But this is exactly what Sennheiser achieves. Add extreme comfort and a lightweight design and you have a gold standard resting upon your ears.

The PXC 550 Wireless is truly a machine in it’s own right. A touch control panel is integrated into the earcups, which gives you complete control on the move. With the swipe of a finger, you have a convenient selection of settings, from volume control, to skipping a track, to taking a call.

An in terms of taking a call, the PXC 550 Wireless offers unrivaled speech clarity. It identifies and filters out all ambient noise and makes sure you will be perfectly understood at the other end of the line, no matter how busy your environment, or how many crying children in front of you!

And with a multiple microphone design feature, it allows you to hear your own voice so you’re not of those annoying people screaming into the phone or laptop in the airport lounge.

There are headphones, and then there are these.

Remarkable Battery Life

Being based in Australia, any international flight is a minimum of 8 hours. At least. So if I was investing in a top-of-the-line pair of headphones, it needed to have a remarkable battery life.

The PXC 550 Wireless is impressive, and seamlessly anticipates your needs by powering on as you unfold it, automatically pausing your track when you remove it, and switching off when you fold it away. So you don’t have to worry about forgetting to turn them off.

That said, with a battery which lasts up to 30 hours of continuous use, this means they outlast the longest of any international flight, and you can span the globe on a single charge without leaving your private audio lounge.

Sound Quality

I was amazed at the difference in sound quality offered and wondered how I ever got by listening on cheap headphones. I am still blown away by the NoiseGard adaptive noise cancellation as it is truly a surreal experience. It literally erases all outside noise to the point I cannot hear a thing even when nothing is being played.

Wearing these headphones creates your own aural space in even the most chaotic of environments: the louder the noise around you, the stronger it is cancelled, giving you the most comfortable listening experience.

It’s basically like comparing to a 60”+ 4K OLED TV to a small Soniq special from your local discount store. With over 70 years experience, I knew I was getting a trusted brand with Sennheiser, and a product that somehow managed to balance the best aspects of wireless headphones in harmony.

Block Out the Rest of the World

Wearing these headphones creates your own aural space

The Verdict

Although First Class flights may not be in my near future I now have a piece of it back in Economy. My Sennheiser headphones have become a carry on necessity for every trip, which is made easy by just how compact and lightweight they store away (the fold-flat collapsible frame enables it to discreetly fold away into the stylish, compact travel case).

They have also become part of my life when not traveling, a great way to drown out noisy neighbors, block out busy cafes when I go to write, and just whenever I want to transport myself away from stress.

I am usually one to recommend cheaper alternatives when it comes to gadgets and tech but what Sennheiser offers is so beyond what any cheap alternative can offer. Sometimes there is no alternative to First Class, and in terms of the best escape money can buy, besides travel itself, these headphones are the next best thing!

    • Its hard not to become addicted, they have such an incredible product range! Drowning out commuters and noisy workmates would definitely work with these … good luck!

  6. The only sound that really needs blocking out is snoring, otherwise it’s loosing yourself in the music, taking you away from the world for a little bit and imagining you are on that beach…and about to travel somewhere exciting..

    • Haha I do agree with you there :D! Amazing the power music has to transport us 🙂

  7. My husband would do a backflip over these ! We travel a fair bit and he does in particular , back and forth from Sydney to Cuba . Now that is a LONG trip and these would be invaluable! Thanks for the opportunity to win these , fingers crossed xx

    • Sounds like your time! Good luck in the sweepstakes 🙂

  9. These look awesome Meg. Kelli used to have a noise cancelling pair of headphones. God-send for flying. Especially long haul flights. Because those experiences can be maddening when you have a noisy baby or folks onboard who play music out loud, or other silly stuff like that.

    • Yep, definitely feel you on the inflight experience being maddening – I’m so thankful for companies like Sennheiser for coming to the rescue! Their headphones really are a god-send 🙂

    • Absolutely – half the time it’s noise from other passengers which is why I can’t get to sleep in transit – it’s been an absolutely life saver having something which blocks out the noise.

      Good luck in the giveaway!

  17. I would love to block out the neighbours upstairs 😀 always putting the dishwasher on at midnight haha

      Good luck in the sweepstakes!

  25. You have a great flow of writing, loved it

  61. Noise cancelling headphones are lifechanging! I steal my mother’s pair all the time, hard to fly without em now.

    • Agree with you! It’s one of those things that after you discover them you wonder where they’ve been all your life!

  62. Perfect for travelling with. I’m not a nervous flyer at all but I do find that constant noise hour after hour puts me on edge – would love to block it out without blasting up the volume.

    • It just gets too much. These are great for really being able to calm the anxiety and block everything out. As you said, without having to blast the volume and burst your eardrums!

      Best travel accessory I’ve got!

  63. I think the comment on the multiple microphone design feature it allows you to hear your own voice while taking a call so you’re not those annoying people screaming into the phone is incorrect.
    I have this headphone and when I take a incoming call and talk I can’t hear my own voice at all. Am I missing something?

    • Hi Patrick, I’ll check into this further for you as I can hear myself while taking calls, though now that you’ve raised the question, I’m not 100% on whether it’s coming through the headphones themselves, or if it’s more of a “blocks everything else out except for my voice” effect.

      There’s definitely a multiple mic system there, as it lists the feature on the website, and in other reviews I read, so I might pull out the manual and see if we should be activating something specific.

      Will let you know if I find anything 🙂

  64. Great review ! These seem perfect for long haul flights!!

    • Thanks Neha! They really are perfect for the long haul. Good luck with the giveaway!

  65. I would like to block out the noise from the lawn mowers, weedeater and other outdoor tools and just to enjoy the music

    • Agree with you there! Love the brand 🙂

  69. I good headphones

  71. Awesome giveaway, finally something very useful for travel- and audio junkies :D!!

    • Thanks Matthias! Good luck!

  72. I’ve spent way too much on low-quality, high-marketing brands. I’m looking for a great pair to block out all the engine noise on planes and this review is opening my eyes!

    • It’s very easy to fall into that trap of spending less on low quality, but in the end you wind up spending more in the long run, by continually having to replace them. Quality may come with a higher price tag, but you only have to pay for it once!

      Glad the review was helpful 🙂

  73. To be honest, I can live with a normal headphone, but wanna hear how these expensive ones sound..

    • Good luck in the giveaway!

  74. Good luck in the giveaway! I use the HD 700’s for my gaming, these would be great for everything else.

    • Sweetest set I’ve found! Good luck in the giveaway 🙂

  78. I want to use these to block out the noise of barking dogs and my family yelling.

    • Totally get that! Good luck in the sweepstakes!

    • Ah yes I know them well! Good luck in the sweepstakes!

  88. The noise that I would like to block on my headset is the static sound and the noise surrounded me.

    Thank you very much for amazing review, it’s very helpful for music lovers specially to the Sennheiser fanatic like me, you give me an idea to learn the best headphone.

    • Always nice to connect with another Sennheiser fanatic Ariel! Glad you enjoyed the post – and good luck in the sweepstakes!

  89. I would love to win these headphones. The ones I use are many years old and don’t do the trick on all the buses, planes, and trains we take in our travels. I especially could’ve used them last night in our sleeper bus here in Vietnam with all the incessant honking! Thanks for hosting the contest!

    • Thanks for entering Corey! Good luck in the giveaway, and hope you’re having a fabulous time in Vietnam (besides the incessant honking!)

  90. I won’t travel without my noise-canceling head phones. I’ve never tried Sennheiser sounds like I need to. Thanks for the recommendation Meg!

    • If you’re looking for great noise cancelling headphones definitely look into Sennheiser – you’ll never need another brand again, they’re incredible 🙂

  91. Till recently on flights I would just make do with the airline headphones till the time I got a chance to use noise cancelling ones and it was like a whole new world. However, traveling with kids my last pair was snatched by the little one and now is sadly no more. Sennheiser is a brand I am aware of and respect, they really do understand sound. This looks really cool.

    • It was like that for me too – one of those things where the first time you try noise cancelling, you wonder where the technology has been all your life!

      Sorry to hear that your pair fell victim to the toddler, they’re so cute though it’s hard to get mad at them right! 😀

      Good luck in the giveaway, hopefully we can line up a new pair from Sennheiser for you 🙂

  92. My home is very noisy from TV, video games, kids playing and music. It can be difficult to get into a good book reading.

    • Good luck in the giveaway!

    • You’re most welcome 🙂 Good luck!

    • Good luck in the giveaway!

  97. Thank you for this awesome giveaway and this little beast is look like one of the best in the brand.

    • Noise cancelling headphones sound exactly what you need! Good luck in the giveaway 🙂

  99. Outdoor environment noise, there are is a delivery site outside my home and all the trucks sounds like war machines, barely can focus even when closing both the windows and the shutters. Some sweet music with these would make me far more productive every day

    You can’t go wrong with those headphones from Sennheiser but (almost) first class travelling is not for everyone…
    Congratulations for the upgrade and thanks for the opportunity.
    Won’t you cross the fingers for me too?
    Cheers.

    • Thanks Joao – we’ll keep our fingers crossed for you!

  111. Thank you for your honest review! I’m a university student and I often find myself in busy areas of the university, trying to study. Noise cancelling headphones would be perfect for playing instrumental music and blocking out chatter while I study.

    • You’re welcome Jessica, glad you found it helpful 🙂 Good luck in the giveaway – noise cancelling headphones will definitely come in handy to block out the chatter in the study hall 🙂

  112. Wow! Great description! These sound like a must-have!

    • Thanks Liz! Good luck in the sweepstakes 🙂

  113. At the moment I’d say the most unwanted noise is the construction noise. It can be really disruptive sometimes.

    • I can understand that – how annoying for you! I hope it stops soon.

  114. my sister voice, she is constantly singing and i hate it, no she is not bad singer nor is her voice bad, but i am sick of listening it whole day, every day for last 10 years

    • Haha sounds like our house 😀 … except I’m the sister singing!!! Good luck in the comp!

    • The draw is random, so we don’t have control over who wins, but wish you the best of luck!

  115. This is a great giveaway, thank

    • Thanks Arie – good luck!

  116. Thank, like this giveaway

  117. says you can tweet every day but it always says tweet 10 hours later and i can never tweet wahhha

    • Hi Carol, after you hit tweet, check your twitter feed for me and see if it has actually gone out, sometimes it sends without you realizing it’s actually gone out. Otherwise you could try and clear the cache in your internet browser (clear the history and tick the box to clear cache) This holds a memory of your internet usage so sometimes it can catch and glitch. But clearing it restores everything to normal.

      Hope that works to gain you a few extra entries! 🙂

  118. That was a great review and The Sennheiser PXC 550 Wireless Headphones look (and I’m sure sounds) amazing! I’ve always dreamed of owning noise cancelling headphones and the Sennheiser would be the perfect pair. If I won, I would block out all the noisy boys in my Boy Scout troop lol!

    Thank you for the sweet giveaway and good luck to all!! 😀

    • Thanks Alexander! Haha I went through Scouts here in Australia, so I know how noisy meetings can get! Good luck! 🙂

  119. I dont want to hear any type of noise from outside. I want to feel away from the world when attached with music.

    • These will definitely help with that! Good luck!

  120. Oh what a blessing it would be to just hear what you want to hear,,, awesome !!!

  121. Every time I research best Headphones I read about this brand, sadly too expensive for me, maybe this will help, I have a good brand but they are not comfortable, this brand is well known for comfortable headphones.

    • Yes, Sennheiser makes a very comfortable headphone – one of the best I’ve found to date. Good luck in the giveaway 🙂

  122. I think these are the headphones I’ve been looking for. The ability to block out the background noise when I am commuting would be amazing.

    • I can highly recommend them, they’re fantastic! Good luck in the sweepstakes!

  123. Definitely want to block out the airplane rumble.

    • It does help with that! Good luck int he giveaway 🙂

  124. I’m a “B” Team Mum, I want to block out the kids and get lost in the music like I used to

    • I babysit quite often, can definitely understand wanting to block out the kids every now and then! Good luck in the sweepstakes 🙂

  125. I could use these to block out people’s noisy children and conversation. I am not chatty at all when I am flying. I just want to listen to my music and tune out everything else.

    • I’m the same – these will definitely cut out the people around you chatting away! Good luck in the giveaway 🙂

  126. Great review! A bit pricey, but I want this! Hopefully I’ll get it free when I win. 😉 Good luck to everyone! Thanks for the chance!

  130. Awesome headphones! Thanks for the chance to win.

  131. What noise do I most want to block out??? All political shows AND Donald Trump’s voice. My Dad watches/listens to politics 8-10 hours a day. At FULL volume. I kid you not. It makes it impossible to study (I’m in my final year of college)…and I don’t know how you feel, but the sound of Trump’s voice makes me feel nauseous. I’ll abstain from writing about my opinion of him, but you can guess how I feel. I would be *SO* happy if I won, because I could study in peace and quiet.

    • OMG me too! Haha although I have control over the remote in my house, so I’m not forced to listen to him. I roll my eyes everytime he speaks. Actually, every time he comes on TV!!

      Good luck in the sweepstakes!

    • LOL! It’s *SO* nice to know you feel the same way! I swear I feel jealous of people from other countries right now…because at least they don’t have Donald Trump as their leader! And what’s crazy is other countries…on the outside looking in…see what’s going on here is absolutely crazy…but there’s that 30% who wouldn’t care if Donald Trump shot someone in the middle of the street. Believe me, I am *SO* looking forward to the day I am on my own and have complete and total control of the remote! 😉

    • My husband is from America, though we chose Australia, and I’m so glad that we did. What’s going on in the States is insane!

    • Agreed. I see and hear what’s going on around me and am dumbstruck at the absurdity of it all. Good on you and your husband for choosing Australia. If I had a second chance, I think I might do the same. Years ago when I was on vacation there, a lovely couple offered to sponsor me. I would not turn that offer down a second time. 🙂

  132. I seldom fly (weak arms), so I would love to cancel the steady drone of bus engines or train cars on my commutes / travels.

  133. not sure you got my previous comment: I would love to cancel out the steady drone sounds of buses and trains on my commutes and travels.

    • Yep, got both 🙂 Good luck!

    • Always annoying! Good luck!

  134. The noise I was to block is the static cracking one it can be hard to hear

    • Absolutely – and the nice thing about high quality headphones is the sound quality is pure – so no static 🙂 Good luck int he sweepstakes!

  135. I would love to stop the noise on planes when I travel! 😀

    • These are great for flying and blocking out the noise of the plane – helps you sleep a lot better because of that too 🙂 Good luck in the giveaway!

  136. My family watching tv or listening to music on such a high volume

    • These will definitely fix that! Good luck in the giveaway 🙂

  137. Snoring, the noise that needs to be blocked the most.

    • Totally agree! Although I think I’m the one out of myself and my husband who snores actually lol! Good luck in the sweepstakes!

  138. When traveling, it’s the crying kid or the dude who is THE LOUD TALKER. Those folks…

    • Yep, totally agree! For that reason I don’t think I could ever travel without these! Good luck in the giveaway 🙂

  139. I would love to block out other people talking, and the background noise that it creates.

    • Good plan! Good luck in the giveaway!

  140. I’d love to use these phones to block out the noise of the TV when my dad’s watching it, he’s hard of hearing and has to make it painfully loud

    • I was watching TV with my grandparents a few months back and it was the same – you feel for them, but so loud!!
