The Sennheiser M2 Wireless Over-the-Ear Headphones, even at $499, are not only the best Bluetooth headphones you can buy, they are also the best for the price. They offer a combination of sound and comfort that other Bluetooth headphones can't provide. Sennheiser is rapidly becoming a popular name for headphones, almost as popular as Bose or Beats by Dr. Dre. The M2 Wireless are actually better than any Bluetooth headphones from either of these companies.
The Sennheiser M2 Wireless were originally released in March of 2015 and most people who bought them had to return them because of a problem with the wireless signal fading in and out. Sennheiser recalled them and it took more than six months to put them back on the marketplace. The wait was certainly worth it.
The M2 Wireless have a folding design for portability and ear cups so soft that you feel no pressure whatsoever. You can work out with the M2 Wireless for two hours without feeling the need to take them off. Previous Sennheiser over-the-ear headphones had cups that were too small and somewhat uncomfortable. Sennheiser definitely listened to the feedback from customers and used it to create a perfectly designed headset.
More than any pair of headphones, The Sennheiser M2 Wireless need to be used for at least a couple hours before the sound reaches its full potential. For example, right out of the box, the bass didn't seem to have enough kick. But things changed later in the day. That said, the Over-the-Ear version still could use slightly more bass like the M2 Wireless On-Ear version, which some say has too much bass.
The middle and higher ranges of sound are spectacular for wireless and -- at times -- don't differentiate from the sound of some wired headphones. The M2 Wireless have AptX technology, which supposedly improves the sound quality with AptX-enabled devices such as Samsung's Galaxy S and Note series smartphones. However, the headphones sound better on the iPhone 6s, which doesn't have AptX, than the Galaxy Note 5 or Galaxy S6.
Then there is the noise cancellation, which is quite good -- almost as good as it is on the Bose QuietComfort 25 wired headphones. They are perfect for taking on a flight or even sleeping with, although you have to sleep with your head in a tilted position. Unlike other noise-cancellation headphones, the noise cancellation doesn't have any "hiss" or degrade the sound quality one single bit.
There are some audiophiles our there who say they would never buy wireless headphones because of the poor sound quality. While Bluetooth audio has its limits, Sennheiser does its best to overcome these limits and provides consumers with a fantastic product that costs a lot, but is worth every penny. The Sennheiser M2 Wireless headphones prove that Bluetooth audio is finally ready for prime time.
