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...

"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...

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.

Small size, nice case, very good at cancelling out the ambient noise of an aircraft (engine noise becomes a low, background hum)

Very uncomfortable after about an hour of wear - my ears became sore and very hot after a relatively short time. Battery compartment is unwieldy and cord control is non-existent (makes it tough to get the whole thing back into the case)

"Good Noise-cancellation, very uncomfortable to wear."

 

Bought these for a long flight and, having spent $150, was very disappointed. I have a small head and these headphones still felt like they were tightly clamped on. The noise-cancellation is very good, but fairly useless if you can't wear the...

"everything great except wiring is annoying"

 

very comfortable, very portable, sound quality and noise reduction is really good. I would say better than Bose if it weren't for the external noise canceling console.

sound quality comfort and noise reduction are superb, very compact folds fits into a small case, good to go.

the external noise canceling console creates annoying wiring.
