The 360 comes with a metal reinforced extendible headband and looks quite sturdy. The soft, leather padded ear cups are foldable to a full 90 degrees and fit snugly inside the carrying case. The PXC 360 BT weighs about 180 grams and is a little heavier than it looks. However, they are comfortable to wear, even for long durations. The battery is located on the left ear cup and is removable/replaceable. The right ear cup holds all the controls as well as the the audio jack. The buttons for toggling Active Noise Cancelling (ANC) and Bluetooth are located at the bottom of the right ear cup while that for SRS-WOW HD is located under the "reduce volume" button. The controls are intuitive but take a while to get used to. The button at the center controls Play/Pause as well as the master control to turn the headphones on and off. The ANC button controls TalkThrough and ANC. There's also a Braille symbol for `L' embossed on top of the left ear cup.
Quite frankly, to fully appreciate the sound quality of the PXC 360 BT, you'll need an external sound card or a headphone amplifier as the integrated sound card on your PC or notebook is probably not good enough to exploit the 360. The 360 reproduces music really well. All my previous headphones used to sound like they passed all the audio through a static equalizer before passing it to the ear cups, so I'm glad I can finally hear music the way it is. Although it does a really good job at reproducing the mids and highs, what really caught my attention was the quality of bass. It'll knock your socks off. I mostly listen to hard rock and heavy metal where good bass is a necessity and the 360 doesn't fail to deliver. For a regular user, I would say that the maximum volume is adequate.Read more ›
This headset appears to have it all: around the ear acoustic seal, wired or bluetooth operation, active noise reduction, rechargeable battery and stereo enhancement. They're delivered with a zipper case, a couple of audio adapters, an AC adapter, a USB cable, and all manner of international power plugs.
The headphones seem to be generally well-made and I expect them to last for some while. The ear cups are usually the component that wears out the fastest but I haven't had these long enough to judge that aspect.
The audio cable which connects the headset to the source in wired mode seems very flimsy and fragile and I don't think it will last; and as it's a micro stereo plug to mini stereo plug design, you'll have to go to a specialty store such as Radio Shack for a replacement.
Sound reproduction quality seems fairly good, although perhaps a bit shy on the bass. The headphones certainly are good enough to demonstrate the limitations of the MP3 format; you'll feel a certain "emptiness" in the upper ranges which cannot be blamed on the headphones. With good source material, the headphones perform fully on the upper end. Yet, overall, there is some lack of shimmer and transparency even with good sources; I'm not quite sure why, but you'll notice.
The active noise reduction disappointed a little. Most of the noise reduction comes from the over-the-ear fit, which does a good job at isolating the listening environment.Read more ›
Basically, this headset is a noise-cancelling headset (like the famous Bose ones) that has some fancy extra features. Keep in mind that noise-cancelling simply means that ambient, background noise (like the engines on an airplane) is blocked out....these headsets will NOT block out a screaming child next to you on an airplane (for that you'll need to cut off your ears), although they will dull the roar a tad.
Now I also happen to own a Bose Quiet Comfort 15 which retails for $300, so I'll compare the two headsets for you here. Both the Bose and this headset are noise-cancelling which is powered by battery. The Bose takes a single AAA battery that you install in the earpiece, while this headset has a built-in battery that you recharge via any of the plug-in adapters they include (there's one for every country included) or via a USB port on your computer. The Bose battery lasts about 25 hours of usage while this headset holds a charge of 11 hours or so.
Both headsets come with a little cable that you can plug into your MP3 player, portable DVD player, your computer, etc to listen to whatever. Both have exceptional sound quality. This headset advertises SRS WOW HD (whatever that means), but it sounds the same as the Bose....both of them are exceptional.
This headset also comes with a few extra features including Bluetooth technology which, when connected with any Bluetooth device you might have, allows you to listen wirelessly. Nice touch!Read more ›

Nice headphones but the BT (blue-tooth) is a PIA. You will find that once the headphones are paired, often times there is no sound. I refuse to buy anything bluetooth anymore. Read morePublished on June 19, 2014 by Ace Cool
