Excerpt: When your music’s blaring, and suddenly there’s someone who wish to talk to you, there is this button on one side of the headphone which enables you to switch it to “mic” mood. That means you could hear what the person is saying, and won’t go “WHAT??” After that person has finished talking, you could then go back to your music listening by adjusting the volume buttons, which you could also flick to high or low, depending on you.
Summary: I got these as an early Christmas present and wore them for the first time on a 14 hour flight from Australia to Argentina, the comfort factor was exceptional I never took them off and even slept in them, the noise reduction provided made the flight so much more comfortable.
Pros: Excellent sound quality and good comfortable over the ear fit.
Summary: Every time I flew I used these headphones on the flight to listen to music, watch films etc. to pass the time but never for just 'noise cancelling'. I am really pleased with the quality of sound. However, I recently did a red-eye flight and wanted to sleep, so I unplugged the lead and switched on the headphones and used them for just noise-cancelling and I was amazed at how good they were.
Pros: 1. They work really well., 2. The position of the headband allows you to lay back without knocking them off your ears.
Summary: I got these specifically to filter out office noise listening to streams through my computer, as I'm a programmer in a farm of 6x6 cubes (about 25) with a lot of distracting noise. They accomplish that task well, and I am very happy with the sound quality. I specifically wanted an 'around-the-ear' model, and these aren't noticeably heavy at all; I wear them all day.
Pros: Comfortable, Convenient, Easy to use, Good Bass, Great Sound
Summary: I currently have two pairs of Sennheiser headphones in addition to the PXC-450s, one of which is an "on-the-ears" PXC-250 with the noise cancellation feature. I have been impressed with the quality of Sennheiser headphones, overall, and have not strongly considered other brands except Sennheiser and Bose. I was looking for a really good over-the-ears set, and it was between the PXC-450s and the Bose QC-15s. I like some Bose products (i.e.
Summary: I am a frequent business traveler and have used the QC2 for several years as well as QC3 on several international flights where AA provides them free. I ordered the PXC when my QC2's broke. They do work better than the Bose at noise cancellation, especially in blocking background talking (which the Bose is poor at) and have handy features like the bypass to use when listening to flight announcements or ordering a Jack & Coke!

Summary: Great Build Quality - Strong joints, tough sturdy plastics, good passive noise reduction, excellent active noise reduction
Sound - Boxed in feel without active noise reduction, sound somewhat thins out with active noise reduction (esp. low freq), active sound processing bypass switch is not perfect (clicking sound with battery in and active noise reduction off- workaround is to take the battery out)
Comfort - EXCELLENT, 9 oz never felt so light
Accessories - All I...
Beyond my expectations, does everything it claims, recommended.

Summary: Overall a very good product well made and attractive, very comfortable to wear for extended periods of time, sounds excellent and the noise cancelation works really well, also like the talk through function which I surprisingly used a lot, had it on a recent 4 hour plane trip with screaming kids around and it cancelled around 80% of the noise.
Summary: The price I paid : 350Euro around £300 Sennheiser, that's the name I think of when someone happens to mention headphones. Synonymous with quality of production but most importantly quality of sound. These are an older pair of headphones I have these around Four years now. They are without a doubt the best pair of headphones I have ever owned and they should be for the price. But as I've said before what you pay for something isn't always a grantee of quality.
Excerpt: These are the first jumbo sized headphones that I have ever bought. Previously I have had to replace the in-ear headphones every 4 months. This is because I tend to listen to my music at a fairly high level, and after a short time, they begin to produce a hissing sound when the base is high. However with these headphones I have been pleasently suprised. So far the sound quality has not changed.
