Product Description

Product Description

The mark II on-ear collapsible mini headphones are equipped with NoiseGard technolgy to cancel droning, fatiguing airplane or bus noise. They are also equipped with an in line volume control.

From the Manufacturer

Highly portable, the Sennheiser PXC 250 II noise cancelling headphones allow you to take off and then lose yourself completely when flying. Thanks to high-performing neodymium magnets, the PXC 250-II delivers a powerful, detailed sound with a wide frequency response, plus it's equipped with NoiseGard to screen out intrusive ambient noise.

NoiseGard technology cancels up to 80 percent of droning, fatiguing airplane or bus cabin noise without added bulk or size. They are also equipped with a convenient in-line volume control which enables you to adjust playback volume even when the music player is stowed.

They offer a closed, supra-aural design that provides for excellent passive attenuation of ambient noise. The newly-improved battery pack requires only a single AAA alkaline battery, and it lasts up to 50 hours--more than enough for a flight from Tokyo to New York (even taking delays into account).

Sennheiser PXC 250 II

Suitable for all types of modern music, it provides detailed sound reproduction with a slight emphasis on the bass. Other features include a steel-reinforced headband for high durability and included carrying case.

The sound very good.
On my most recent pair, the left channel stopped working within six months of purchase.
Good noise canceling.

This is my second pair of these lightweight noise-canceling headphones, which should tell you how much I liked the first set. I use them for travel, especially long plane rides to and from Europe.

PROS: (1) Light weight and portability. When I travel, minimizing weight and space is very important, and these featherweight headphones are perfect for those of us who find ear buds annoying. I wore them for 9 straight hours on a flight back from France and they never hurt my ears or felt heavy. By contrast, when I've worn the Bose on transatlantic flights (American Airlines loans you a set if you fly business class), I can't go more than about 3 hours before they start to feel uncomfortable. (2) Low price -- less than half the cost of the price-controlled Bose. (3) They work just fine (only without the noise canceling) if the battery dies. (4) The new ones have a small volume control on the battery compartment which I found very helpful on a long flight.

CONS: Their light weight makes them a bit delicate. They must be folded and unfolded with care -- don't get them for your teenaged son. If he sits on them, they can break. My son has a pair of Panasonic noise-canceling ear buds that work almost as well as the Sennheisers and he has been unable to break them (yet).

MATTER OF PERSONAL PREFERENCE: They don't cancel as much noise as the Bose. Personally, I find the Bose a bit eerie because they cut you off from all ambient sound, which is not the way one normally listens to music. I prefer the Sennheiser because, when I am waiting for my plane, I can usually still hear the announcement that the gate has changed or they are beginning boarding.

At half the price of the Bose on ear headphones there is no good reason that I can imagine for buying anything but the Sennheisers. Aside from being much more friendly to the wallet, here's why you should get these:

- Sound reproduction is excellent
- They continue playback after the battery dies, unlike the Bose headphones
- Lightweight and compact
- Noise cancelling is excellent

This is my second set of Sennheisers. I bought the PXC 250 set in 2007 and have now upgraded to the PXC 250-II after managing to leave the first set somewhere in an airport. I travel about 100,000 miles a year and these have been a godsend both for listening to music and surviving my plane flights without headache and stress.

This is my third Sennheiser headphone set (lost one). The first two were the 250 model which requires two batteries rather than the one required by the 250 II model. I cannot tell any difference in the noise cancelling feature between the two models. They both do a good job, although not quite as good as the more expensive, well-known brands. But they do well and they are better on the other features -- compactness, particularly. The 250 II has a volume control feature on the smaller battery compartment, which is handy. Either model works in a quiet environment without the noise cancellation turned on, a big plus compared to those other brands that don't. The combination of price, design and effectiveness in cancelling noise will keep me from ever spending twice the amount on other sets that may be slightly better on noise cancellation, but not as good on all other features. By the way, I use the headphones mostly for airline travel, of which I do a lot.

I purchased the Sennheiser PXC 250 II's on a trip to Europe. I own Bose but I like to pack light. I have traveled to China, Europe, and across the US this year. With limits on baggage, carting extra stuff is no longer convenient. You can't really compare these to Bose because they are geared to be portable where the Bose are only marginally so. With the case the Sennheisers are about 1/3rd the volume of the Bose.
Since the Sennheisers do not completely enclose the ear, they do not provide full noise cancellation. This can be a positive if you actually want to hear some of the important announcements. You find yourself turning up the volume to compensate, though. This high volume over extended periods can be detrimental -- so you need to be aware of the volume. If you take a lot of prop commuter flights, pack the Bose. If you are on newer, quieter equipment the Sennheisers are fine.
I found the music quality to be excellent and I could adjust my player to add a bit more bass. I am not an audio expert so it comes down to what I like. I like the sound of the Sennheisers. I also own a pair of in-ear Sony's and the Sennheiser PMX 80 Sport II's. The Sony's do not always stay in position but the sound is good when they do. The Sennheiser 80's are great for my morning walks and very durable. The sound is OK but they are rain resistant and do not move around -- a plus.
All in all, the Sennheiser PXC 250 II's are a good value and provide portability, marginal noise cancellation, and excellent sound. I would really give them a 4-1/2 out of five because they come very close to being the perfect travelling headphones.
