Say ‘goodbye’ to the frustrations of cable tangle when you are travelling and already have too much to carry! Now you can relax, listen to music or take a phone call at the touch of a button even when in noisy environments such as airplanes or trains. The closed ear-piece design combined with Sennheiser NoiseGard active noise-cancellation ensures that outside noise is effectively reduced by up to 90%. There is also a handy ‘TalkThrough’ button for clear conversations without removing the headset. What’s more while delivering fantastic sound with any Bluetooth audio device, it also features the CD quality apt-X codec to deliver CD quality audio with any apt-X audio devices.
The MM 550-X was designed as a larger full-size headset for supreme comfort and for those with larger ear shapes. You can now experience excellent audio without having the inconvenience of becoming tangled up with your rucksack or when you need to answer your phone. The ear cups are sealed to block out distracting noise and prevent noise leaking out to interrupt others. And there’s even more - you don’t have to take off the headset to talk to the flight attendant or fellow passengers, the MM 550-X TRAVEL also features a new one-touch ‘Talk Through’ button so you can order your drink without struggling to remove the headset!
* Functions are phone and computer dependent
If you hold down the Bluetooth button when connected to an iPhone it activates the Voice Control so you can even select your tracks by name!

To hear the full audio potential from your computer or audio device with a USB socket, Sennheiser recommends using the BTD 500 USB (a USB dongle accessory), to ensure the source is apt-X enabled
