Sennheiser announced the PXC 360 BT headphones and the MM 550 TRAVEL headset which are both Bluetooth-enabled and equipped with NoiseGard-2.0 to shield against external noise. With Sennheiser's acoustics and SRS WOW HD SurroundSound technology you're guarantee a journey into a very special world of sound.
Sennheiser's active noise-cancelling system lets you simply 'switch off' annoying noise from aircraft engines and trains. At the push of a button, NoiseGard-2.0 technology minimises low-frequency background noise. The active noise-cancelling effect of the two travel headphones is supported by a high level of passive attenuation: the closed design, large circumaural ear cups and the use of noise-attenuating materials successfully keep out high-frequency noise. As a result the sound level is reduced by up to 23 dB. At the same time, the TalkThrough function allows you to conduct a conversation with your neighbour or the cabin crew whenever you like without removing the headphones.
PXC 360 BT Bluetooth Wireless Headphones
Whether you are using a mobile phone, MP3 player, computer or PDA — the Bluetooth interface of the PXC 360 BT and the MM 550 can connect with a wide range of portable video and audio devices. Thanks to apt-X codec technology, Bluetooth A2DP connectivity enables wireless streaming of excellent-quality digital audio with minimal delay. Powerful Neodymium magnets and Sennheiser's Duofol diaphragms ensure detailed, lifelike sound reproduction in a frequency range of 15 to 22,000 Hertz. And the special SRS WOW HD feature immerses you in a fascinating world of sound: SurroundSound spatially expands the sound image to provide an intensive sound experience with powerful bass.
For those occasions when it is not possible to use Bluetooth on some airlines, the headphone set includes an audio cable and an adapter for use with in-flight entertainment systems — all you need for perfect relaxation above the clouds.
MM550 Adds Microphone Enabling Bluetooth Calling
Travelling almost inevitably means making phone calls. The MM 550 TRAVEL not only enables you listen to music without being disturbed, it also lets you make phone calls no matter how much background noise there is. The NoiseGard function reduces the level of background noise during telephone calls, thus improving intelligibility.
A control unit integrated into the ear cup allows you to conveniently take incoming phone calls. A simple push of a button is enough to establish the connection. And the AVRCP Bluetooth protocol allows you not only to regulate the volume on the MM 550 and PXC 360 BT but also to select individual tracks. The Bluetooth, SurroundSound and NoiseGard functions can also be directly activated at the ear cups — taking you into a different world at the push of a button.
The PXC 360 BT and the MM 550 TRAVEL will be delivered to Sennheiser sales partners from July.
