Sennheiser PXC 250

 

The ultralight Sennheiser PXC 250 mini-headphones are exceptionally comfortable, but their undersize soft-ring ear pads may require some fiddling to seal properly. Our test unit's noise cancellation capabilities were excellent. Sound quality was in a...

Sennheiser PXC 250

 

Very comfortable; compact, foldable design; excellent high-frequency detail; taut, powerful bass; highly effective noise-canceling circuitry; storage case included; two-year warranty.

Battery pack is cumbersome.

Highly effective noise-canceling circuitry mated with detailed sound and a comfortable fit--what's not to like?

Sennheiser PXC 250 Noise-canceling Headphones

 

Noise-free listening for unhindered audio

The active noise-cancellation offered through these headphones help to keep out external noise as you listen to your audio. The sound quality provided by these headphones is also quite good, with clarity in treble, bass and mid ranges

The noise-canceling ability of these headphones is quite limited and will not work that well when the environment features noises from a varied spectrum of frequencies

Active noise-cancellation is the forte of this pair of headphones, and it does well in this respect to cut out all ambient noise from the environment as you enjoy your favorite audio. Couple this with great sound quality, and you have a great audio...

Sennheiser Noiseguard PXC250 Headphones

 

This is a less expensive audiophilically-acceptable product for use on the move. Our reviewer described the sound as "nothing short of superb, with plenty of bass, a fine relatively out-of-head spatial effect and absolute freedom from treble nasties."...

Sennheiser PXC250 review

 

Sennheiser's PXC250 headphones offer a lighter construction than the others here. The narrow headband and on-ear design may not have been in vogue since the mid-80s, but they do have advantages when it comes to travel.
