The Sennheiser HD 350BT headphones offer strong overall sound quality and are particularly impressive for music and TV/video experiences due to their dynamic drivers and support for AAC and AptX Low Latency codecs, which ensure high-quality audio and reduced lag. They feature good comfort and very good build quality, with convenient built-in controls. However, they aren't ideal for exercise due to their over-ear form and only fair portability. While they provide very good noise isolation, they lack active noise cancelling, which might be important if you're looking to use them in particularly noisy environments or for air travel. Additionally, they are not sweatproof or dustproof, and they do not come with wireless charging, which could be considered downsides depending on your needs. Their battery life is robust at 33 hours, making them suitable for extended use without frequent recharges. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Battery Life:
5.0
The Battery Life rating is based on hours of typical, actual usage.
Gaming:
4.7
The Sennheiser HD 350BT headphones are considered excellent for gaming due to their support for the low-latency AptX codec, which minimizes audio delay, and their very good microphone quality that ensures clear communication with other players. Their closed-back design and good soundstage also help create an immersive gaming experience.
TV & Video:
4.7
The Sennheiser HD 350BT headphones are excellent for TV and video watching primarily because of their superior overall sound quality and support for aptX Low Latency, which significantly reduces audio delay, ensuring the audio and video stay in sync. Additionally, their good soundstage and imaging score contribute to an immersive viewing experience by providing a sense of space and directional cues in the audio content.
Air Travel:
4.7
This score evaluates the product for use on airplanes and other similar kinds of travel. It takes into account noise reduction and portability, including case shape, case size, and weight. It also incorporates the battery life of the product, long-haul comfort, noise reduction (both active and passive), and sound quality. We generally consider wireless products to be more suitable for air travel.
Podcasts & Audiobooks:
4.5
This score evaluates the product when used solely to listen to podcasts or audiobooks. It takes into account sound quality and sound signature, to be able to keep voices clear and intelligible. It also considers battery life, when available, and comfort.
Calls:
4.2
This evaluates the product when used solely to make and receive calls. It takes into account how well the products are able to clearly reproduce the human voice, the quality of the integrated microphones and the battery life, when available, to be able to use them for longer sessions or conferences.
Music:
4.0
The Sennheiser HD 350BT headphones are praised for their excellent overall sound quality, benefitting from their closed over-ear design which offers a more intimate and isolated listening experience. Although they lack virtual surround, their dynamic drivers and support for the AptX Low Latency codec ensure a rich and responsive audio performance, particularly favorable for music lovers who value sound accuracy and delay-free wireless listening.
Exercise:
3.3
This score evaluates the product when used for exercise and physical activity. It mainly takes into account comfort, whether or not the products are sweatproof and how secure are the earbuds or headphones while wearing them. We also consider products with wireless capabilities to be more suitable for this particular scenario
