If you’re in the market for a set of headphones with a built-in microphone so that you can use it for music and talking, you’re in luck as Sennheiser has announced two new sets of wireless headphones at MWC. They are the MM 550 and MM 450-X, both of which are apparently targeted at the audiophile crowd, and will be utilizing Apt-X file compression technology whose algorithm compresses files four times faster than before, thereby improving performance, or so they claim.

Both headphones will also sport NoiseGard 2.0 technology, which reportedly will be able to cancel out up to 90% of background noise. Both headphones will also feature a push-to-talk external microphone, and it seems that if the device they’re paired with does not support Apt-X, the audio will be reverted to standard Bluetooth audio quality instead. The MM 550 will be the higher end of the two and will come with SRS WOW HD that will help boost the bass and create a surround sound effect.

The Sennheiser MM 550 and MM 450-X are expected to be made available in March this year, but unfortunately no word on pricing just yet.
