Sennheiser PXC 250-II overview

  • 1Description

The PXC 250-II on-ear headphones from Sennheiser are a terrific travel companion, offering high-quality audio and noise cancellation in a small and lightweight package. The headphones use neodymium magnets and Duofol diaphragms to create audiophile-quality sound, bringing out all of the details in your music.

Sennheiser's NoiseGard technology reduces ambient sounds by up to 80%, letting you focus on your music instead of your environment. The NoiseGard controls have been reduced in size by 50% for better handling and convenience. The NoiseGard technology operates for up to 50 hours on a single AAA battery. If desired, you can also use the headphones battery-free in passive mode without the NoiseGard enabled. An in-line volume control makes it easy to make volume adjustments on the fly.

The headphones have a lightweight, foldable design, making it easy to bring them anywhere. The adjustable headband is metal-reinforced for strength and cushioned for long-lasting comfort. Soft on-ear cushions prevent fatigue and also help to block out ambient noise. The headphones have a standard 3.5mm plug and an airplane adapter plug for connecting to in-flight entertainment systems. A carrying case is also included for convenience.

    Sennheiser PXC 250-II reviews

    PXC 250-II On-Ear Noise Cancellation Headphones is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 39.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have already reccommended this product These headphones are amazing. When I tried these headphones I was sitting on a rather noisy train. I put them on and sat there and was a little dissapointed, they just felt like normal headphones. Then I realised there was an on/off switch, and when I turned it on, wow the train noise basically dissapeared, and even the annoying loud people over the eisle became a quiet murmour. Definately a must for the frequent traveller. These headphones exceeded my expectations and I have recommeded them to plenty of other people. The packaging is great, the whole kit folts up to a size only a little larger then a wallet.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Older is better, in this case. I had the 2007 version of this product and used it a bunch. Unfortunately, after a 6am flight, I left it on a plane. I loved these headphones so much, I immediately bought what I thought was a replacement pair. I got them and realized that they had changed things. They don't sound as good, they have much more plastic in them and the earpieces are not as comfortable. I have never been a Bose person, but I am wondering if their product might be better. I am very disappointed that Sennheiser has skimped on this product. I have used their products for decades and feel a bit betrayed by the cheap feel of these. OH well... I guess the world is going down the tubes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, great size My original Sennheiser headphones were destroyed by the gears in a fully reclinable airline seat, so I had to buy another noise-canceling unit. I chose Sennheiser again after testing Bose, Sony, and many others. Reasons: sound quality and noise cancelation capability are excellent, the compact size makes traveling with Sennheiser easier than with competitive models, and the price is right. No headphone is 100% perfect, but Sennheiser comes the closest in my estimation.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good headphones I also own the first generation PXC 250 for over 8 years. I bought these for me so that I can give my young son the older ones for our upcoming trip to Disney. I use these almost exclusively on plane flights and the compact design and quality of the audio is well worth the price. These are a good replacement for them. Same if not better noise cancelling technology. It only needs one battery as opposed to 2 for the oringal. And the volume control on the battery compartment is a nice addition. For the price and travel-friendliness of the package, it was a good purchase.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product! I bought a couple of pairs of these headphones primarily for a long haul flight. They were really comfortable, have great sound quality and do a good job of suppressing the engine drone, making flying far more enjoyable. My girlfriend wears them while sleeping even without music playing they do a good job of cutting out background noise. The folding design and included carry case mean they dont take up too much luggage space. I wouldn't travel without them now. Highly recommended!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well Just came off an international flight. It's the first time that I was able to hear a movie without blasting the volume. Works well on NYC transit system for noise reduction. Nice sound and reasonably priced compared to others. Don't expect total isolation from ambient sound. I like to hear what's going on around me.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Professional Headphone Use I'm a professional cinematographer who is committed to monitoring the scratch track or clean tracks coming into the camera from the sound recordist. I need a lightweight set of headphones that will not get tangled-up in the shoulder-mounted cinema camera. These headphones have the classic Sennheiser sound quality with an adjustable inline volume control, which is handier than adjusting the volume on the camera. I also appreciate the midpoint cord 'clip' that allows me to snap the cord to clothing and keep it away from the camera. I own the classic over-the-ear Sony headphones, but the curly cord is a nightmare for camerawork... it keeps getting caught-up on the camera etc. I would say that these Sennheisers are great for general monitoring. Also- the Noise canceling works well. Because they are on-ear and not over-the-ear, they are not as good for total immersion monitoring (that's the sound recordist's job), but I've always heard what I needed to hear in terms of RC hits or static. I've used them now for about three months. They are good, solid, reliable, lightweight headphones.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from PXC 250 II Sennheiser These headphones effectively block extraneous engine noise while on board aircraft as well as cancel machine noises such as landscape gasoline or electric equipment. The long cord is easily tucked into a pocket or backpack while in use and the ear pads fit well without being restrictive. The lightweight carry case is sturdy yet compact making them a wise choice for the frequent traveler. Be advised to carefully fold the headphones as they are stowed into the case. Since the cord is long, winding it around the head gear might become an issue.
