Product Overview

Sennheiser CC 550 Corded Headset

The Sennheiser CC 550 corded headset is an ultra noise cancelling headset designed to be used with your desk phone, smart phone, or computer (each requires the correct connector cable). The CC 550 is a padded binaural over the head wearing style, It has a rotatable microphone for left or right hand side wear, and extra large ear cups (51mm) for the ultimate coverage.

All corded headsets come with a brand specific QD (quick disconnect) connection and require a same brand adapter cable to make them compatible with your phone. These range in price from $26 upwards. Many of these cables look the same but are different inside, so if you’re not 100% sure which you need, give us a call and our staff will gladly check for you.

The Good

The Sennheiser CC550 offers an ultra noise cancelling microphone for blocking out background noise in extra loud environments such as warehouses, or offices with staff sitting in close proximity. It has a flexible microphone boom for perfect placement and an ultra comfortable headband with padding and independent side adjustment ensuring comfort all day long. The extra large ear cushions are perfect for those with larger ears or wanting complete ear coverage (NB they don’t enclose the ear but are the largest ear cushions available in headset world.)  In the box, you’ll also get a carry bag & clothing clip plus coloured ID clips which help differentiate between headsets if several people have the same headset.  There’s also both leatherette and acoustic foam ear cushions included which will save you on buying spares.  Top tip; pick up some spare headband cushions when you purchase the headset to save yourself the hassle and extra postage costs in a few months time.

Sennheiser’s patented Activeguard technology protects the user’s hearing from sudden loud noises which can cause acoustic shock.  Sennheiser’s 60+ years of expertise & experience in high end professional audio has been ploughed into their headsets and has created the new benchmark in headsets and this is the top of their corded range.  The CC 550 comes with the peace of mind of Sennheiser’s 2 year manufacturer’s warranty.

The Not So Good

The CC550 isn’t a wideband headset but does come in a wideband (IP) version if you’re looking to use it for VOIP.  Other than that the negatives are really more to do with the issues inherent to corded headsets....

As with any corded headset  you are tethered to your phone via a cable, this can be frustrating when wires lie across your desk and get in the way of papers or drop down and get crushed & tangled under chair wheels. If your work requires that you get up from your desk (whether on a call or not) you’ll need to unclip the headset or take it off each time & reclip / put it back on when you return.  If you do this alot it can get super-annoying so a wireless headset could save you time, hassle (and hair!).

If you don’t have a headset port on your phone, a corded headset will take the place of your handset. If you still want to use the handset you can pick up a switch to allow you to swap between the two.

As we’ve mentioned, corded headsets need connector cables, so don’t forget to factor in those costs when budgeting. If you have a phone that is difficult to match for compatibility you may have to look at an amplifier. An amp, while providing superior call control (with mute and volume controls) and sound quality, will push up the price to about the same as a wireless headset (which  have an amp built in), no brainer – if you need an amp, get a wireless headset!

Binaural headsets aren’t for everyone.  Receptionists can look a little unapproachable with both ears covered and those who interact regularly with colleagues may find it annoying to remove the headset (or move the earcup) all the time.  BUT if you spend a large part of your day on the phone, these are the safest option for your hearing.

The Verdict

The Sennheiser CC 550 is the perfect solution for those working in a noisy environment and want the ultimate in comfort and ear coverage.

Other headsets to consider before buying

If you have smaller ears or don’t want the XL fit, the CC 540 has large ear cups and the CC 520 has regular sized, all with the other excellent features of the CC 550. The CC 520 and CC 550 are available in wideband versions; CC 520 IP and CC 550 IP.  If you don’t need the ultra noise cancelling microphone, the SC 230 & binaural SC 260 are both excellent headsets.

Another factor to consider is the extra productivity that can be gained from the freedom to walk away from your desk while on a call. It is worth checking out the Jabra Pro 920 which is a great entry level wireless option for only a small amount extra. If you want to stick with Sennheiser then the DW Pro 1, is their magnificent wireless option, which also has an ultra noise cancelling microphone. If you think 2 ears are better than one, the DW Pro 2 is your best choice.

Customer Reviews

  • Ease of Setup
  • Value for Money
  • Ease of Use


The first reason I purchased this headset was so that I could hear my clients more clearly and so they could hear me more clearly. The second reason was so that I could eliminate the sound of the office around me over the clients’ voice. I didn’t want to have to strain to hear my clients.

PROs
• Volume can be much louder than other headsets
• Duel earpieces
• Sturdy headset, not flimsy or fragile
• Powerful microphone (Clients can hear things I say very clearly)

CONs
• Clients get feedback from the sound coming out of the ear cups. I have the volume on just above medium and they can hear themselves over the phone no matter how far I move the Mic away from the ear cups. This is a massive issue as clients are always complaining that they can hear themselves back through the phone and that they find this unsettling. The only way I can address this issue is by reducing the volume, and then I have trouble hearing the client.
• My ears are very small and the ‘extra-large ear cups’ only just covers them. I hear a lot of the noise around my workspace over the client speaking on the phone and I find myself straining to hear what my clients are saying. The overview said that they’re the largest ear cushions available in headset world, but my colleague uses the Plantronics HW301N Corded Headset and the ear pieces have the same width. Although, the Plantronics ear piece is much more comfortable. Without using the extra foam ear cups supplied I found the cushions on the ear cups to be quiet hard after hours of use.

Unfortunately, the headset doesn’t do the job for me.
