Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"I love that the battery is rechargeable and lasts quite a while, but it failed to stay in and sometimes didn't charge properly."
_
"), a part of the battery enclosure caught on the insert housing so that the flimsy plastic part was outside the insert hole and the rest was inside; it didn't fit very snugly."
_
"* The buttons on the left earpiece to control the bluetooth, etc feel flimsy (as does the battery and its housing)."
_
"The battery is not fixed well in the nest, so when take off the micro-usb connector, keep it by other handPro:It worksSound quality is OK"
_
"I also love that the battery and ear pads are replaceable."
_
"Battery life is around 4 hours with noise cancelling turned on, but I have a spare battery which is easy to have on hand and the batteries charge super fast even via a computer USB port."
_
"Make sure to buy the extra battery separately to make these the best headphones you ever owned."
_
"Fortunately, Sennheiser made it easy to swap out battery packs ($25-35 ea)."

Bluetooth

Bluetooth:
"One, last thing--these bluetooth headphones do not pair well with non-Apple products."
_
"Looks ok but i have some problems on Bluetooth music got cut everytime that i got my cel on my pocket wich is a pain just works when you have it in your hand not my kind of headphones"
_
"I was looking for a pair of over-the-ear noise canceling Bluetooth headphones to replace a Sony headset that broke after a few years of ownership, and I was sold by the description of the features on the MM550-X."
_
"These by far are the worst headset in the Bluetooth noise canceling territory."
_
"The worst sounding Bluetooth I've experienced is a Rocketfish behind the head-band model."
_
"* I tried to get Bluetooth to work, but was never able to (with a Macbook Air) - It required a code but my software didn't accept any code."
_
"I don't understand why; I have two pair of the Sennheiser MM 100 bluetooth headphones and they pair easily."
_
"Nice Bluetooth headphones but please upgrade the volume."
_
"I read for a while about some other users trying to force usage of the apt-X codec over the bluetooth protocol, but am pretty sure this is their own folly since it's an old (1980's) proprietary codec."
_
"My headphones use the SBC codec by default, which seems to be the bluetooth special interest group recommendation, and they sound awesome."
_
"There are plenty of Bluetooth headsets in the market and I was looking for the best and sennheiser MM-550 matches my interests."

Music

Music:
"Looks ok but i have some problems on Bluetooth music got cut everytime that i got my cel on my pocket wich is a pain just works when you have it in your hand not my kind of headphones"
_
"Actually seems to degrade music."

_
"(Both closed headphones).I'm not a heavy bass lover, but I require a balanced amount of it to enjoy the type of music I listen to."

Noise

Noise:
"Comfortable fit around the earsOnly con is that the noise cancelling is good, but not as great as the Bose QuietComforts (probably because the Bose's have larger physical cover over ears)"
_
"While out of the box, its not the best at noise cancellation for those of you who have experienced anything greater these high-end Sennheiser MM 550-X are s comfortable, great-sounding pair of wireless Bluetooth headphones, but on the recent prices you might want to compare to this pair of Sennheiser's here: http: amzn."
_
"The noise canceling feature was horrible and even at max volume with it on, I could still hear people around me having normal conversations."
_
"The noise canceling is not that effective when compared to Bose phones."
_
"The noise cancel feature is super weak."
_
"These by far are the worst headset in the Bluetooth noise canceling territory."
_
"Noise cancelling is very good, and while many compare it to Bose and say that it comes up short, I would say that for me, it has worked well enough when I have needed it."
_
"I had a set of PXC-250s that were wonderful at noise cancellation and cost less."
_
"Battery life is around 4 hours with noise cancelling turned on, but I have a spare battery which is easy to have on hand and the batteries charge super fast even via a computer USB port."
_
"This is a good time to play Pink and White noises.2."
_
"I needed a new pair of noise cancelling headphones after the Able Planet ones I had used for several years broke."

Quality

Quality:

_
"The sound quality was not as good as my $5 skullcandy earbuds."
_
"Build quality was cheap and flimsy, the style makes them look like $15 Sony."
_
"I am picky when it comes to audio quality, having high end headphones from Shure (SE530), Sennheiser (HD650) and Denon (AH-D2000) so I would not settle for something without exceptional audio quality."
_
"The audio quality is good."
_
"At least Sennheiser redeemed it's bad product quality with an outstanding service quality."
_
"Audio quality is great, delivers decent bass for beat-heavy tracks, and also has solid treble range to catch detailed melodic and vocal tracks.4."

_
"I don't feel that it has good quality sound specially for its price and its brand name"
