Sennheiser PXC 250-II review

 

The noise-cancelling Sennheiser PXC 250-II are dainty which makes them great for the commute

Highly portable ; compact design ; good detail

Unequal dynamics ; noise-cancelling average

Sleek, compact and portable, but uneven dynamics take away the fun

Sennheiser PXC 250-II review

 

It's an irony that the most expensive phones in the entire round-up are also the smallest in form factor. With lightly padded speakers around 2.5cm in diameter and a headband under a centimetre wide, Sennheiser's PXC 250-IIs are fully portable travel...

If portability were our main concern, these would be the phones we’d choose. They’re very lightweight and unobtrusive, with delightful styling. And the sound they generate is terrific, too: that’s in no small part thanks to the active noise-cancelling...

Sennheiser PXC 250-II review

 

The PXC 250-II is an update to an old Expert Reviews favourite. As with the original PXC 250, the PXC 250-II are a lightweight pair of folding on-ear headphones, supplied with a soft pouch and aeroplane adaptor and backed by a two-year warranty. The...

Excellent sound quality, highly effective noise cancelling and a light, comfortable design easily justify the high price.

Sennheiser PXC 250-II

 

For $260, Sennheiser's PXC 250-II is a good pair of noise-canceling headphones, but if you can afford them, more expensive pairs like Bose's QuietComfort 3, deliver much better performance.

Effective noise cancellation. Can be used in passive, non-noise canceling mode. Solid audio performance at moderate volume levels.

Distorts at higher volume levels on bass-heavy tracks. Large noise cancellation/battery compartment on cable. Runs on a standard (not rechargeable) AA battery.

Sennheiser PXC 250 II HEADPHONES

 

The Sennheiser PXC 250 II are compact, lightweight on-ear headphones that have great audio reproduction and don't leak much sound. Unfortunately, they feel very flimsy and the small, poorly padded ear cups are uncomfortable and let a lot of ambient...

Great audio reproduction. ; Minimal leakage. ; Compact, lightweight design.

Poor isolation. ; Flimsy build. ; Uncomfortable.

Sennheiser PXC 250-II

 

Fold up a bit better than their predecessors, but otherwise remain the same

Great frequency response, low distortion; Lightweight, comfortable design

Isolate poorly, active cancellation or not; In-line controls seem poorly designed

PXC 250-IIThe PXC 250-IIs are a great set of portable headphones. They’re comfortable, not much heavier than a pair of sunglasses, and offer excellent audio quality for $150. Their main downside is their design isn’t always conducive to portability....

Sennheiser PXC 250-II Travel Headphones

 

Are these headphones as good as the claims or is Sennheiser relying on reputation?

Do you prefer on-ear headphones or in-ear buds? Sennheiser, the German uber-brand, is well-known for its pro and consumer audio products, as well as for its breathtaking (and expensive) Neumann microphones. Now, the company has updated its...

Consumer review (argos.co.uk)

A sound purchase.

 

" Comfortable. Kept me oblivious to screaming kids and whiney passengers on flights I have taken with these on so far. Only four stars as there's not much bass kick to them but tinny they are not ! Comfortable. Quality. Purchase. "
