Sennheiser PXC 450 NoiseGard

 

Sennheiser finally beats Bose's QuietComforts, but for an exorbitant price.

Excellent noise cancellation. Comfortable fit. Deep low end. Great audio performance. Passive mode for music listening only.

Very expensive. Quite large. Volume controls hard to use when in place.

Sennheiser PXC 450 NoiseGard HEADPHONES

 

The Sennheiser PXC450 are average headphones with good audio reproduction and decent build quality, but questionable design choices. Unfortunately, the noise isolation is severely lacking and is not recommended for use in noisy environments.

Decent leakage performance. ; Great audio reproduction.

Uncomfortable, Inner-earcup design. ; Slightly overpowered mids. ; Poor noise isolation.

Sennheiser PXC 450

 

Meet the Sennheiser PXC 450s, a set of mid-range active noise-cancelling over-ears that are not only super-comfortable, but block out a decent amount of outside noise. While they may not appeal to the most discerning audiophiles, they will absolutely...

The PXC 450s are a decent set of cans.

Sennheiser PXC 450

 

The Sennheiser PXC 450s are an all-around, decent set of active noise-cancelers.

At the end of the day, the PXC 450s are a decent set of cans.

Sennheiser PXC 450 Noise-Canceling Bluetooth headphones

 

The freedom of wireless on your longest journeys

Superb quality transmitted over Bluetooth. Complete noise-cancellation. These headphones are comfortable to wear

The headphones are on the large side, bordering on massive, which means they are a bit hard to carry around

The awesome PXC 450 returns with Bluetooth connectivity. Now you can enjoy superior quality Bluetooth streaming from your PXC 450 BT headphone set.

Review: Sennheiser PXC450 NoiseGard 2.0 Headphones

 

Sennheiser has gone in the opposite direction with its PXC450 Headphones ($450), which are billed as audiophile-grade noise-canceling headphones-a step beyond the QuietComfort 2, rather than below it. To justify the steep asking price, which is more...

I own a pair and paid less than the $349.00 that Bose sells the QC3s for. So they can be had for lower than list price if you are willing to spend a few minutes on the Web. In addition, they sound fantastic-have very transparent highs and mids with...

Sennheiser PXC450

 

With $799 you can buy a lot of things. It can get you 2663 soft serve MacDonald's ice cream cones for example, or 53 movie tickets. It also happens to...

Great clarity, crisp sound, nice mid and treble ranges, great noise cancelling

Bass is a little weak, expensive

Offering the best noise cancelling out of any pair of headphones we've heard, Sennheiser's PXC450 offer a great choice for frequent travellers; just make sure you can charge the hefty cost back to your company.

Sennheiser PXC 450 review

 

These former Award winners have now been beaten by the Bose QuietComfort 15s

Sound far better than most rivals ; snug, comfortable fit ; effective

Not cheap

Best noise-cancelling 'phones in Awards 2007, with a detailed, dynamic performance

Sennheiser PXC 450 review

 

It breaks our heart to think of all the engineering Sennheiser did on the talk-through button on the over-the-head PXC-450s, because it works pretty well. You're just never going to use it. No air hostess is ever going to believe that you can actually...
