Sennheiser PXC 450 NoiseGard 2.0

 

Sennheiser proves that sound quality doesn't have to suffer with active noise cancelling.

Sennheiser PXC 450 review

 

These former Award winners have now been beaten by the Bose QuietComfort 15s

Sound far better than most rivals ; snug, comfortable fit ; effective

Not cheap

Best noise-cancelling 'phones in Awards 2007, with a detailed, dynamic performance

Sennheiser PXC 450 review

 

It breaks our heart to think of all the engineering Sennheiser did on the talk-through button on the over-the-head PXC-450s, because it works pretty well. You're just never going to use it. No air hostess is ever going to believe that you can actually...

Sennheiser PXC 450 noise cancelling headphones

 

Large and encapsulating, the new PXC 450 noise cancelling headphones build massively on the previous set we've reviewed from Sennheiser. As if the company had heard everything we had to say, the PXC 450 has a stack of new features and improvements over...

Runs on a single AAA battery, noise cancelling very good, talk button

Very big

We were very impressed with the new headphones from Sennheiser in our brief look and now getting a chance to look and listen further in a number of different situations we are happy to report back that the PXC 450s are very good. In our initial test,...

Sennheiser PXC 450 - FIRST LOOK

 

Attempting to unseat Bose in the noise cancelling arena, Sennhensier has launched a new pair on noise cancelling headphones called - the PXC 450. But can the new set beat the Bose Quiet Noise 3? We were given a brief play to find out. Large and...

Runs on a single AA battery, noise cancelling very good, talk button

Very big

It might have been a brief look, but from what we heard, we are very impressed with the new headphones from Sennheiser. The only grumble we have in the lack of ability to detach the headphone cable, something that we've found really useful with the...

Sennheiser PXC450 review

 

Enjoy the quiet life with Sennheiser's latest noise-cancelling headphones

In passive mode, sound is genuinely hi-fi ; 'NoiseGard’ cancelling of unwanted background noise is very significant

Hiss level is not inaudible ; Some coloration in the midrange ; Require an extension cable for home use

As far as we’re aware, this is currently as good as it gets for making the most of listening in planes, trains and automobiles and is a fitting match to the best of today’s portable music players.

Sennheiser PXC-450

 

After the first few hours, these Sennheisers more than justify the high price. Excellent!

Awesome noise-cancelling technology. Usual superb Sennheiser sonic performance

Expensive. Low-end grunt is slightly lacking

Sennheiser PXC-450

 

The Sennheiser PXC-450s are folding, noise-cancelling circumaural (around the ear) headphones with NoiseGard 2.0 technology and a TalkThrough switch. Comes with two adaptors (6.3mm and airline) and uses one AAA battery. Weighs 240g. The good Transform...

Save your money on flight upgrades and spend it on these Sennheisers instead. Whether you’re watching a movie, listening to music or just want some peace and quiet to work (or kip), they’re simply the best in-flight accessory money can buy. Sennheiser...

Sennheiser PXC 450

 

Sennheiser developed its NoiseGard noise-cancelling technology to protect airline pilots from engine noise, and the PXC 450 'phones do a really good job of cutting out background noise. You can hear the noise around you drop dramatically as soon as you...

Extremely clear sound reproduction, powerful noise-cancellation features

Expensive, relatively limited volume, miserly set of accessories

Sennheiser PXC450

 

With $799 you can buy a lot of things. It can get you 2663 soft serve MacDonald's ice cream cones for example, or 53 movie tickets. It also happens to...

Great clarity, crisp sound, nice mid and treble ranges, great noise cancelling

Bass is a little weak, expensive

Offering the best noise cancelling out of any pair of headphones we've heard, Sennheiser's PXC450 offer a great choice for frequent travellers; just make sure you can charge the hefty cost back to your company.
