Sennheiser Noise Cancelling Headphones - PXC450

The PXC 450 is a circumaural high-end travel headphone set with NoiseGard™ 2.0 technology and TalkThrough function for the best possible attenuation of ambient noise.

The PXC 450 enables an unprecedented sound experience for people on the move, thanks to its adaptive baffle damping in combination with the patented Duofol diaphragms, which prevent unwanted partial oscillation and thus guarantee a highly natural, lifelike sound quality.

NoiseGard™ is an active noise compensation system which Sennheiser originally developed for use by pilots, who have to rely on good sound quality and efficient protection against ambient noise even in high-noise environments. NoiseGard™ actively compensates the noise, based on the physics principle of sound and counter-sound.

NoiseGard™ 2.0 has perfected the NoiseGard™ principle thanks to the use of optimised circuitry design and even more efficient processors. It also uses better quality microphones, which enable more sophisticated pick-up of unwanted noise. Specially developed filter algorithms enable improved active noise compensation of up to 90% (23 dB). It is of course also possible to use these headphones passively, i.e. without NoiseGard™ and without batteries.

Users of a PXC 450 who wish to communicate with their neighbours can do so without taking off the headphones: when the TalkThrough function is activated, professional quality microphones mounted on the outside of the headphones pick up all acoustic signals in the immediate vicinity. Unwanted background noise, such as the sound of the engines on a plane, is filtered out electronically to a great extent, so that only the neighbour’s voice is passed on through the headphones into the user’s ear in top audio quality.

The PXC 450 is foldable and is supplied complete with practical transport case, 2 AAA batteries and audio adaptors (double mono and 6.3mm). Volume control integrated in the headphones and a single-sided detachable and replaceable cable ensure maximum convenience for the user.

          Comments about Sennheiser Noise Cancelling Headphones:

          Extremely comfortable over-the-head full ear headphones. If you dislike ear-plug type headphones as much as I (uncomfortable, hard to fit, etc.), these headphones are for you.

          While the PXC450 may seem to be on the pricey side, just remember they are Sennheiser and with Sennheiser, you always get what you pay for.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Arrived as promised, excellent packaging, and no complaints.

            Comments about Sennheiser Noise Cancelling Headphones:

            Extremely comfortable and excellent sound quality with good noise cancellation on Transatlantic flights. Folds up fairly compactly but you need a sizable pocket to carry them unless you want to pack them in the accessory carrying case in hand luggage. One AAA battery keeps noise cancellation effective from USA to Holland and back. Just.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Delivery was remarkably prompt and I got the phones the same day the company alerted me on email that they had been shipped, which was the day after I ordered them on-line. Fabulous service.

                I now noticed how much ambient noise there is during my daily travel. I love how with the headphones fellow commuters do not disturb me and others conversations on mobiles are blocked.
