Sennheiser PXC-300 review: Sennheiser PXC-300

 

Sennheiser PXC 300 Sennheiser's PXC 300 noise-canceling headphones boast the latest refinement of the brand's NoiseGard Advance hushing technology. The travel-friendly 'phones also offer featherweight comfort, fold flat for easy storage in the supplied...

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...

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

Foldable, very comfortable, good quality sound, noise reduction

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

Sennheiser PXC 300 review

 

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

Sennheiser PXC-300

 

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

Battery pack VERY awkward

 

It's easy to forget to turn the unit off which allows the batteries to drain. Although the batteries seem to last pretty well under normal use, I find myself having to constantly replace them because I forgot to turn the unit off. An automatic shutoff...

Good sound quality, comfortable, decent noise cancellation (not B*se quality but it wasn't $300 either)

Extremely awkward battery pack. I purchased this headset for use at work with my desktop computer. My computer sits on the floor under my desk and the cable is too short to use the headset comfortably ; The battery pack (two AAA) is about 40" (102cm)...

SENNHEISER PXC 300 3.5mm/ 6.3mm Connector Supra-aural Active Noise Cancelling Headphone

 

This product exceeded my expectations! Worth the price.

very comfortable for long periods of use, compact size for travel, works well at reducing engine noise on transatlantic flight when seated over wing (doesn't eliminate all noise, but makes it very tolerable), good at blocking voices and construction...

exterior battery/cancelling unit sometimes a little awkward, but the resulting performance is worth this minor inconvenience

Great headphones

 

Great for trips or sitting at your computer. I might not want to cruise around the city with it, as the external case might get in the way, but you'll probably have a backpack if your using your ipod/mp3 player.

Great Sound. Very Comfortable. Very Portable, ie they fold up. Noise cancellation also amplifies the signal. Helps make ipod a little louder. Also comes with 1/8th inch adapter and airplane adapter, which comes in handy

Comfortable, Compact, & Sound Great

 

I have some noise isolating ear buds from Shure which work great. These are much more comfortable to wear for long periods of time (long flights). I just used these on the plane and they worked very well. The noise canceling takes the engine noise down...

Compact size compared to rival products. Nice case. Includes adapter for airplanes that still use the dual prong plugs. Very comfortable
