Summary: My wife lost her first set travelling to Florida, she thinks someone lifted them from her bag which was open on the seat for 30 seconds. But, one should not wrongly accuse. She did not even want to try my Bose QC2's,she wanted the Sennheiser's back! I bought her a new set. She loves them.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact Design, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality, Improved carry case
Summary: These noise canceling headphones are perfect for me. When riding the light rail train, I can still hear the announcements while listening to music on my blackberry at a comfortable volume, the sound quality is excellent and the built in volume control is a great feature. They fit comfortably over my glasses and earrings. I am very satisfied with this product. I love the compact size and carry case but the fold up design seems a bit delicate.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact Design, Easy To Use, Excellent value, Great Sound Quality
Summary: Amazon Verified Purchase ( What's this? ) This review is from: Sennheiser PXC 250 II Noise Cancelling Headphone (Electronics) This is my third Sennheiser headphone set (lost one). The first two were the 250 model which requires two batteries rather than the one required by the 250 II model. I cannot tell any difference in the noise cancelling feature between the two models. They both do a good job, although not quite as good as the more expensive, well-known brands.

Summary: This review is from: Sennheiser PXC 250-II Noise-canceling headphones with in-line volume control At half the price of the Bose on ear headphones there is no good reason that I can imagine for buying anything but the Sennheisers. Aside from being much more friendly to the wallet, here's why you should get these: - Sound reproduction is excellent - They continue playback after the battery dies, unlike the Bose headphones - Lightweight and compact - Noise cancelling is...
Summary: Most noise-cancelling, over-the-ear headphones are far too heavy or too hot for me. On the other hand, I don't like the feeling of earbuds and I know they are not good for your hearing. These headphones combine a better noise-cancelling and higher quality sound than earbuds with a light, comfortable headset that can be easily tucked into my purse without weighing me down or taking up space, for a reasonable price.
Summary: work well on Jets but not great on smaller prop planes like a Twin Otter or Beech 1900 they actually make the noise worse. Other than that they fold up nice and have a good case. The sound quality if you just use them around the house etc. is good. They fit not too bad but you have to adjust to keep them in the "right spot". Nice volume control. Overall I regret that I didn't just spend the extra and got the Bose over ear ones.
Summary: I did a lot of research before I choose these headphones and I am regretting buying them. Should have spent the extra money and got the ear bud style. They do help drown out airplane noise but but no means do they take it away. The sound quality is good but as the unit is quite compact the ear pads just fit on the ear so if they move the sound quality is reduced.
Summary: Really happy with them on my first 5 hour set of flights to the west coast. Took out almost all of the native cabin noise and drone from the plane. Allows you to listen at an enjoyable level and not have to crank the volume on the source. They fold up nice and compact, and are easy to shove in a bag or carry-on. The in line controller (volume & on/of) is a bit bulky, but it keeps the headphones themselves slimmer and lighter which I appreciate.
