[Amazon.ca] Sennheiser PXC 550 Wireless Headphone $189.99

Best buy and Amazon were both selling these for 259.99 but with the lightning deal it's down to 189.99 on Amazon. Don't forget to use Rakuten or GCR for cashback!

Edit:
Thought I'd share my impression on this headphone. I tried them a few days ago at Best Buy alongside the wh-1000xm3. The fit was a bit tighter than the Sony's but felt somewhat more secure on my head. The sound signature on the PXC 550 was noticeably brighter and more neutral, but the trebles can be a tiny bit harsh at times. The wh-1000xm3 on the other hand was a little too bassy for me but can easily be fixed by adjusting the eq. Don't know if best buy burn in the demo units though so take it with a grain of salt.

Deal is 16% claimed, not even close to dead.

Weird. Shows $259 for me. Any chance the deal disappears once you have purchased the item?

Edit: It appears once you have purchased the lightning deal, the sale price disappears. Once I signed out of Amazon the deal was there. Sorry Op.

How do these compare to other headphones? I just started looking for BT headsets the other day in this price range, How does this stack up to the competition and how much of a deal is this?

I was going to order some Refurb Bose QC35 for $250 but this seems to be a better deal. Anybody know what amazon’s return policy on headphones?

The sound range is more neutral than the bass heavier 4.40/4.50.

Touch controls. ANC.

Note that I believe that the soundstage app no longer exists.

These are not meant for hooking up to the TV and there will be audio latency.

Works fine for YouTube though.

I believe this is the cheapest price it's gotten on Amazon.

I got those ones last black Friday for $129 deal, but these ones are a better deal as they compete against the best Bose and Sony headphones with a lot of fancy features.

How do these compare to QC35? Rting says the Bose are better, any experiences? Worth paying $60 more for the Bose?

I think it's mostly the ANC is better on bose. I think its better than any other headphone so that's usually why they score higher.
