The feature I like the most is that the battery is rechargeable utilizing the same mico usb cords most cellphones have now.

I also have the px-100,pxc-250,pxc-300. The PXC-310 is nicely built. They are bigger than the other pxc models and sit on the ear. Because of this you get better noise cancellation than the other models. They also come in a case that is just a tiny bit bigger than the case of the pxc-250 and 300. On the plus side, the noise cancellation is built into the earphones rather than an external piece as in the 250 and 300. It also has a volume control built into the earphones. The sound is good with good bass and highs. That being said, when you turn the noise cancellation on, you lose some bass. This was also the case with the pxc-300 but not the 250. However, the 310 still puts out more bass than any of the previous models. The talk through function is handy when someone is speaking to you. All you have to do is press the button on the earphone and it shuts off the music so you can hear via a built in microphone. However, it sounds as though you are under water. It has a very hollow sound, but it is a nice feature. Once again, these earphones, like its predecessors do not play as loud as other headphones but is more than sufficient. Another nice feature is that the earphones still work without the noise cancellation turned on. To be honest, the earphones sound better with the noise cancellation turned off. If you are in a quiet environment, this would be the way to go. All in all they are comfortable,good sounding and nicely built. By the way, i had and returned the Bose QC3. To my ears the 310 are much better sounding.

I ordered these phones for air travel, to decide between them and the Sennheiser PXC-350s, also noise canceling phones. The 310s sound very good, but the richness of the sound can't compare to the larger 350s, which, unlike the on-the-ear 310s, totally cover your ears. The smaller size of the folding 310s may be a plus for travelers, but the phones also appear to be far less substantial than the 350s. I went for the less expensive, more durable and better sounding 350s, and will put up with stares from fellow passengers who are thinking that I must be a member of the Science Club from the size of my phones. The 450s sounded pretty much identical to the 350s- to me, not worth the extra $100.

I purchased the PXC 310 headphones from Amazon.com and have had a few days to play with them. I haven't had the opportunity to travel with them so this review is based on general home use. The sound quality is exceptional when you consider that these headphones are in the mid price range. I noted a number of reviews talked about the volume, but unless you are the kind of person that wants your eardrums blown out, I find the volume range to be fine. The bass is not heavy, but I tested it for all genres of music (Rock, Jazz, etc.) and found it within an acceptable range for me. I agree with other comments that note that the quality of the sound is actually enhanced with the NoiseGard feature turned on. The convenient way the headphones fold up and store are also a big plus. I tested the noise cancellation feature around the house with various noise producing devices such as kitchen exhaust fans etc. and my opinion is that the Sennheiser claim that these headphones eliminate 90% of ambient noise is in my opinion overstated. Obviously this is not a technical review, but I figure that most listeners will be dealing with similar ambient noise distractions that I do day to day. I would guess that the actual noise elimination is more like 50% and as noted by other commenters, this feature will not minimize voices. You can still hear talking/TV in the background. What it does however is eliminate the annoying constant humming type noises so perhaps on a plane is where it shines. I haven't tested the high end Bose noise cancellation headphones because I wasn't willing to pay the price, but out of curiosity, I may do that now to see how much noise they eliminate compared to the PXC 310. Now to the issue with the flashing LED light that doesn't go away.Read more ›

I've owned various Sennheiser headphones for almost twenty years and these are the only ones I do not love. They are adequate. The sound quality is okay and I like how compact they are when folded down in their travel bag. But there are three significant drawbacks to these headphones: the annoying blinking red X, active noise cancellation that does not live up to Sennheiser's claims and the TalkThrough function is simply unusable in most noisy situations.

First, the annoying blinking red X. Seriously, who thought this was a good design idea? This is a large blinking red light that is meant to indicate that you can't hear. When you use the TalkThrough function the light turns to green which is to let the people around you that they can be heard. I am pretty sure these aren't universal symbols so they are useless. There are reports that you can turn off the red blinking light, but no, you can not! Not on this model. I got confirmation of this from a curt Product Manager at Sennheiser at the Sennheiser booth at MacWorld/iWorld 2012. Nothing will make you look more like a cyborg freak (sorry Lobot) on a night flight then a flashing red light coming out of the side of your head. Seriously flawed design.

I have used these on five different types/sizes of planes, sitting in various sections of those planes, on the very noisy San Francisco BART and in a room with a loud air purifier. The claim of Sennheiser NoiseGard 2.0 technology providing up to 90% active noise cancellation may be true in some environment in their lab. There may be scenarios in which it can reach "up to 90%" but that is not my experience. I estimate that it is generally in the 60%-70% range. Not awesome, but adequate. It is way better than not using them, that is for sure.
