Sennheiser PXC 550 - £202.29 Refurbished @ Sennheiser Outlet

Found 4th Aug 2017
Use code SENNUK15 to get a further 15% off some already heavily reduced prices. I've ordered a pair of PXC 550's for just over 200 quid. Refurbished I know but I have bought from the outlet before and my HD700's arrived in immaculate condition.
Sennheiser also honour the 2 year warranty on these, so no worries in that respect.

good price
A well reviewed headphone that are considered the smart buy over the Bose noise cancelling sets. Pretty much the premier choice for a travel headphone, and an excellent price if Sennheiser offer 2 year warranty.

I don't think these phones come with a bluetooth sender?
Is this right?
Not useful in aircraft for direct connection. It's easy enough to buy a sender for £15-20 pounds of course.
Good prices though

I think they do, but then I'm not 100% sure what this would be needed for



To connect to the inflight movie!
If they do, it's not shown on any of the pictures AFAICS

Oh ok, I can see what you're getting at now. All ok using the cable. Do any sets come with sender?

EDIT: Isn't just a bluetooth receiver that's needs to be plugged into the armrest. There's this and as far as I can tell bluetooth/wireless acceptance is different with each airline. Some have their IFE with bluetooth/wifi capability

Sorry, does it come with a cable as well?
I know there's that two point connector, but usually anyway one of those two works ok. Anyway I've got an adapter. I last flew about 6 months ago. I usually fly economy, long haul, not on a package airline. I've never heard of bluetooth being available from the seats. There was wi-fi for phones, laptops etc for the Internet. It is evolving

From the Sennheiser web page for this model:
"The PXC 550 comes with: cable with inline remote control, carry case, USB cable, IFE adapters, quick setup and safety guide."

So airplane adapter included, 3.5mm cable included. Same setup as my Sony MDR-1000Xes which I've been loving since they turned up. It's nice to get peace and quiet in the city.

Have them. LOVE THEM! Come with cable which is a decent length so you should be able to plug into anything that you need to, on planes etc. The difference they make when travelling on public transport is a sanity saver. Also you can pair to phone and tablet/iPod/laptop via Bluetooth at the same time ... I've only tried two devices at the time, but may be able to have more. This price is amazing, my sister has been considering a pair after paying with mine.
Who pays over £200 quid for a pair of head phones?

Apple bought a head phone Company , because there is a lot of profit in them . That is why Apple did away with head phone sockets on some of their products hoping the iDiots would buy their accessories.

I always remember my physics master at school going through the signal generators range asking the class to put their hands down when they could not hear the sound . Even then it was remarkable the difference in children's hearing from person to person.

He finished the lecture by saying by the time mo9st people can afford to buy expensive Hi Fi they don't realise their hearing has diminished and they cannot hear any difference to justify buying expensive gear!

If we're just talking about speakers strapped to your head, sure, expensive headphones may not always make sense. If we're talking about extra features like active noise canceling, which is not cheap tech to include if you do it well, then spending more money can be justified.
Received mine this afternoon. Pristine condition. Very happy indeed with this deal. Appreciate they're not for everyone but a £130 saving is a hot deal in my eyes.

On the strength of the condition of yours, I've just bought them. There's an awful lot of info out there on this set, mostly very positive. I agree with you, a really good deal which of course was never going to be appriciated by some. There nothing close to the deal you posted. Thanks for posting this

Whilst the value of a pair of headphones or any product is not directly proportional to the price paid, simply because expensive things are sold in lesser quantities than cheaper things, and some products, in particular hi-fi products have for many years been sold on the basis of hearsay and pseudo 'scientific' mumbo jumbo, sennheisers to me offer good value for money. I now have four sets in various price ranges. Yes, my hearing range will have diminished but what I can hear sounds very clean and undistorted even at uncomfortably high sound levels.
These phones are not just simple wired phones, they are wireless if required (with over a 20 hour battery life) or they can be directly connected and charged via USB. What is also often overlooked when people complain about the price, as they often do here, is that they are also active noise cancelling. A good noise cancelling phone set eliminates a lot of extraneous noise on flights, trains etc, so you don't need to have them at such a high level. There is also a free 'ap' which will allow you to taylor the frequency response to your requirements.
The only thing I would say about these phones is that the earpads are quite tight on my ears, unlike my other sennheiser phones so if you have big ears you may find them uncomfortable!
They are back in stock now and the discount code still works.
