Dainty Coolness

Jessica L., Newegg
5 March 2009
  • Summary: My boyfriend is a DJ and owns studio quality headphones and I let him test the product for me. I think they are pretty good but the power of these comes from the noise canceling stick.
  • Pros: Amazingly lightweight! Clip on the sound canceler seems very sturdy. The sound cancellation was able to cancel out the noise of the highway in the distance at my apartment. I like the stick. It was a good way for me not to run over the cables with my computer chair. I just connected it to my pock...
  • Cons: So I looked at the picture and I didn't realize that the ear muffs were so small! It's fine because the head set seems pretty flexible, and the muffs are leather-like and comfortable, like two little pillows. *The Big Issue* It went mono! The right ear piece played no sound until I turned on the ...

The Active Noise Canceling Worked Well

K L., Newegg
30 November 2008
  • Summary: The cord seemed a bit flimsy thus questionable on its durability. The head set cord can be shorten by about 10”, and still leave enough for the wearer to move freely. This shorter length can rid the worry of getting tangle, plus not being an obstruction.
  • Pros: Took a 3 hour flight with it on and had experienced the most pleasant audio from the sound source, and none of the noise from the surrounding environment. It's light weight and comfortable designed truly made it worthwhile to own.
  • Cons: The controller having a tubular dimension of 5.25' & 0.875' can be cumbersome.

beware of the huge noise canceling module

Xian W., Newegg
20 November 2008
  • Summary: Got this thing for free with a combo deal with the HD280. well, can't argue too much too for free stuff. As a side note, the NC is actually better than RCA full size ones I tried before.
  • Pros: -Noise canceling is pretty good for its size, took out most of my fan noise -Sound quality at mid-range very good
  • Cons: -The NC unit is HUGE, originally I wanted to use this for my MP3 player. That thing is 3 three times the size of my MP3 player -Annoying muffling sound with NC on -NC actually does worse job than the passive isolation on my HD280 -Base is pretty not strong enough, I can hardly hear the drums

Good headphones at a gret price

John K., Newegg
8 November 2008
  • Summary: Hoping to use them with my refurbed Sansa e280 I just ordered from NewEgg last week.
  • Pros: For the money (utilized the $25 trade-in rebate), they are a good set of headphones.
  • Cons: None so far.

Excellent Value

Lorin R., Newegg
17 October 2008
  • Pros: These headphones are very comfortable (I don't wear headphones unless I have to, I don't care for them), lightweight, sound great and do in fact cancel background noise. When my office mate gets on the phone, out come the Sennheisers.
  • Cons: None to speak of. They do use batteries, but I don't know what the battery life will be.

I like them

Adam L., Newegg
30 September 2008
  • Summary: Would buy at a discounted price but would move to the PCX 300 because of quality of material issues.
  • Pros: -Good sound when playing music -Cancels noise adequately for a entry level buyer -Good price for people who just need the essentials and function
  • Cons: -Big NoiseGard connecting device a bit clunky -Material of earbuds will not last wear and tear of extensive use -No case for fragile headset

Very good quality per price

Nick Z., Newegg
19 August 2008
  • Pros: Sound quality is better than many headphones in its price range. Noise canceling works pretty well, perfect for busy office environment.
  • Cons: Noise canceling pen is somewhat cumbersome, frequently being pulled off of the edge of my desk when I turn to my second PC.

User Review

Christopher T., Newegg
21 May 2007
  • Summary: I was quite impressed with the sound quality of this product. I had read that noise canceling phones usually had inferior audio performance when compared to non-canceling phones, but that's not the case here. The only real caveat is the hiss produced when noise canceling is active.
  • Pros: Above average sound quality. Reasonable price. Same noise canceling technology as pricier Sennheiser models. Fairly comfortable.
  • Cons: Unwieldy pen shaped noise canceling module hangs off of the phones. Audible hiss introduced when NC turned on.

Auriculares con cancelacion de sonido activo.

LALO1925, MercadoLibre
15 December 2011
  • Conclusion: Es un auricular muy bueno, como todo los productos Senheiser. Para quien nunca utilizo el sistema de cancelacion activa y posee un oido muy sensible, no es recomendable. Sin embargo con un poco de costumbre, un reproductor con un nivel de salida de audio considerablemente bueno (alto) podes escuchar...
  • Pros: cancela el sonido ambiente de nivel constante externo., son comodos al oido, buenos materiales de constuccion
  • Cons: Incrementan los graves, posee el dispositivo activo externo algo incomdo para transportar libremente., puede generar incomodidades al oido sensible., Su impedancia es alta por lo que el nivel de audio debe ser significante.
