Sennheiser has this week unveiled two new headphone sets at the Mobile World Congress 2012 show, the Sennheiser MM 550 and MM 450-X. Both headphones are equipped with Sennheiser’s Apt-X file compression technology, which now compresses audio four times faster than on previous version of the headphones.
As well as the Apt-X both headphones are also equipped with NoiseGard 2.0 technology, which has been designed and added by Sennheiser to cancel up to 90% of surrounding background noise whilst in use.
The Sennheiser MM 550 headphones will also be equipped with SRS WOW HD technology boosting the bass and creating a surround sound effect. However this technology will make the MM 550 headset a little more pricey than the MM 450-x.
Both headphones will also feature a push-to-talk external microphones, and when paired with devices that do not support Apt-X technology, the audio will revert back to standard Bluetooth audio quality instead, say Sennheiser.
Both new set of headphones the Sennheiser MM 550 and MM 450-X will be arriving in stores sometime during next month. But unfortunately no information on pricing has been released as yet by Sennheiser, but as soon as it is we will keep you updated as always.
