Sennheiser PXC-300

 

At first glance, the Sennheiser PXC 300s looks like upscale Walkman-style headphones; closer examination reveals them to have an impressively durable design. The earpieces are approximately 1.75 inches in diameter, so they can't completely cover your...

Very comfortable on-ear headphones; highly effective noise-canceling circuitry; lightweight design; folds for compact storage; sturdy travel pouch; two-year warranty.

Maximum volume is somewhat limited compared with other headphones.

Sennheiser's featherweight noise-canceling headphones are supercomfy and produce sound quality approaching that of some full-size models.

Sennheiser PXC 300 Noise-canceling Headphones

 

Cancels out ambient nose for the best listening experience

The active noise-canceling feature provided by these headphones removes all environmental noise. The sound quality provided by the headphones is quite good, with superior definition of bass

It is hard to increase the volume of these headphones as much as you would like. These headphones are quite expensive when compared to similar models on the market. A slight hiss from the equipment is audible when there is a low amount of external noise

As with all Sennheiser headphones, this model is aimed at giving consumers the best there is. Thanks to advanced active noise-cancellation and superior audio quality, the Sennheiser PXC 300 provides the greatest solution that any discerning audio...

Sennheiser PXC 300 headphones Review and Prices

 

The market for noise-canceling headphones was once dominated by a single company, but over the past few years, other manufacturers have caused a stir in that monopoly by producing exceptional products of their own. One stellar example is Sennheiser's...

Sennheiser PXC 300 noise cancelling headphones review

 

Sennheiser believes it has a cheaper alternative to those who want to cancel out noise and can't stretch to the price of highly impressive Bose QuietComfort 2 or 3, but can the headphone company do it with the PXC 300? We take a closer look. Lighter...

Foldable design, compact, light, sound good

Battery tube, cable gets in the way

The Sennheiser PXC 300 headphones look like a good deal offering a performance almost as good as the Bose headphones at half the price, however the package is let down by a poor design and cumbersome wires

The Sennheiser PXC 300 is a foldable set of noise-cancelling headphones with excellent sound quality, but a lack of bass and a chunky battery pack det...

Foldable, very comfortable, good quality sound, noise reduction

Ears become hot after prolonged use, lacks bass, battery pack bulky and heavy

An excellent choice for those who like the noise reduction feature, but the bulky battery pack is a major disadvantage.

Sennheiser's folding PXC 300 headphones have a separate noise cancellation unit attached to their cable, which takes two AAA batteries.

Very comfortable on-ear headphones ; Highly effective noise-cancelling circuitry ; Lightweight design ; Folds for compact storage ; Sturdy travel pouch ; Two-year warranty

Maximum volume is somewhat limited compared with other headphones

We compared the Sennheiser PXC 300s with one of our favourite NC models, AKG's K28 NCs (£91). The Sennheiser's sound was clearly more detailed with superior bass definition, but the AKG produced more bass and could play a lot louder than the PXC 300s....

It packs almost the same performance as the Bose QuietComfort 2 in a much smaller package and at about half the price.

Great noise cancelling ; Foldable design ; Good sound quality

Cumbersome battery pack ; Tendency to amplify ambient noise

Good sound quality, light and very portable

CNET claims that the phones have "an impressively durable design." I don't know what that is based on, maybe that is how they *appear* but my own experience is different

"Pretty goood but not durable"

 

I've gone through two sets of these in this series, the last being the high-end model. Both eventually failed because the hardware just doesn't hold up. After the first one broke (basically, the wire connector slowly came apart, so first one channel...
