Testing the Sennheiser 660 MS - Can I finally travel with just one headset?

For years now, I have traveled with two headsets . I always have my trusted Bose headset in order to shut out unwanted noise, and comfortably listen to music or watch something on my mobile device. Bose is in my opinion the best headset on the market for this very reason. However, the Bose headset is really bad when it comes to speech in modern collaboration tools like Teams. And since I do a lot of meetings on the road, I always bring a second headset for that purpose.

I was hoping the Plantronics 8200 UC would solve my problem, and for two years it has been my preferred office and UC headset. The Call quality, the ANC and the music quality was really impressing. The music part can never compare to a headset like Bose, but it was close enough. However, the 8200 is quite big and bulky. This makes it slightly uncomfortable to use when traveling.

Enter the Sennheiser MB 660 MS. PeBeCom have generously given me a device to test, and I can honestly say I am impressed. The quality of voice is at par with the 8200, and the music quality is even better due to the different modes you can easily switch between. I have to say I think the noise cancellation is a bit better in the 8200, but where the 8200 is big and bulky the 660 is smaller, lighter and it fits my head a lot better.

With the 660 I have finally found one headset I can use for travelling and voice/video calls. My backpack just got a bit lighter, and I have one less device to pull out of the bag at security. I will probably still use my Bose on long haul flights and personal trips, but this is when I only care about the music and I don't want to work :)
