Sound Quality

Samsung Galaxy Buds Live

(1/3)

With three total beamforming mics — two on the exterior and one inside — the Galaxy Buds Live have performed just fine during my Zoom meetings and voice calls. Samsung says they also have a “voice pickup unit” in the hardware for improved speech detection. You can use either bud independently while the other is charging in the case.

Comfort

Samsung Galaxy Buds Live

(1/1)

TBH, the Galaxy Buds Live are the what I use most often day-to-day. They're reliable, comfortable, and good enough for casual listening.

Sennheiser PXC 550-II

(1/1)

Granted, I don't talk often on the phone, so I'm less likely to experience this, anyway, but I'd imagine the same exact issue would cause accidental pausing of music, etc., which I haven't had an issue with. Cons: The only cons I can think of are: 1) As mentioned in Comfort: The headphones press slightly too firmly on the sides of my head. This could also potentially be a Pro, so I'm reluctant to call it a con

Bluetooth Connectivity

Samsung Galaxy Buds Live

(1/1)

The new Galaxy Buds Live would be a good option, a little over budget at retailers but there are loads going on ebay because they were a free promotion item with the Note 20 Ultra

Sennheiser PXC 550-II

(1/1)

No fast charge features from the knowledge of mine, and it takes approximately one and a half hours from zero to total charge.Bluetooth PerformanceI am only able to speak for Android users as I don’t encounter some visual/audio lag from watching YouTube videos on the phone of mine or perhaps on some other streaming apps.Disturbances while listening was near to one and I might put the telephone of mine a great 5 meters away and connection will still be present.Smart Connect AppWith the Smart Connect App, one may set the equalizer and download some program posts on the headset

Fit

Samsung Galaxy Buds Live

(1/1)

If you’re worried about bass, don’t be. So long as they’re in your ears right, the Buds Live can kick out plenty of oomph on the bottom end. These sound excellent and just what I’d hoped for considering the $170 price.

Sennheiser PXC 550-II

(1/1)

Sometimes it feels like the padding is brushing my ears in a way that bothers me. These also heat up my ears in a way that neither the Sonys or B&O headphones do. I was really disappointed in these, comfort-wise. I can wear my B&O headphones for longer, with fewer issues, than these and my main motivation for purchasing these was the comfort

Noise Cancellation

Samsung Galaxy Buds Live

(1/2)

If you buy the Galaxy Buds Live because of the advertised noise canceling, you’ll be sorely underwhelmed and disappointed.

Sennheiser PXC 550-II

(1/3)

Moreover; they also have a wearing detector, touch control, voice assistant. The PXC 550 ii has a good battery, the Sennheiser claimed can be 30 hours, and it can work really nearly 30 hours. However; the Sennheiser PXC 550 ii comes at not cheap price, so if the price is not your issue, I would like you just try.Sennheiser PXC 550 iiNoiseGard Adaptive Noise Canceling Headphones, Great sound quality, Smart pause autopilot, 30 hours of playtime, One touch to access voice assistance (Google, Alexa, and Siri)Sennheiser, such as arch-rival Bose, is recognized for the knowledge of its in the noise-canceling headset and we are huge fans of the first PXC 550 Wireless, which we granted our top distinction of five stars three years back

Durability

Samsung Galaxy Buds Live

(1/1)

i grew up in the 1970's and 1980's. i have had and worn more earphone types through the nearly 50 years than i can even count! these are by far the best i have ever owned and worn! the sound is dynamic! i love the ability to noise cancel! most inner ear earphones hurt my ears after 15 or 20 min of wearing them i can leave these in for hours without pain or discomfort!

Sennheiser PXC 550-II

(1/1)

I have had these for several months and at the same time owned Sony WH-1000XM4. After extensive time using each including air travel here is what I came to realize: 1. Sound Quality is greater than Active Noise Cancelling. No one should suffer poor sound from ANC
