General Description

The PXC 450 is a premium around-the-ear travel headphone set featuring Sennheiser’s exclusive NoiseGard 2.0 active noise compensation system, which effectively reduces up to 90% of ambient noise. The extremely comfortable headphones offer audiophile-grade sound combined with a foldable construction for maximum enjoyment and convenient storage.

The innovative new TalkThrough function allows the user to communicate with neighbors without taking off the headphones. Unwanted background noise, such as the roar of the airplane engines, is filtered out so that only the neighbor’s voice is passed on through the headphones at top quality.

Just one AAA battery is all it takes for up to 16 hours of serene enjoyment. The PXC 450 also functions as a passive headset when used without batteries, so audio always works.

What the experts are saying:

"If you're a big dog you need this PXC 450" - Ernie Sims, Philadelphia Eagles

comment on above for robert and any others7/19/2011
 comment on "roberts" review... unfortunately you probably won’t be able to fix that as your sitting on a ride on lawnmower..where the sound is transfered through your body....which is not what these headphones block (they block sound through the air)... I personally don’t have these headphones but would like them....was just explaining why that is the case... so if your gonna be sitting on something that is loud, to not kill your ears maybe just use these or equivilant as earmuffs.....

Thankful for These7/17/2011
 I purchased these for my husband for his birthday. He is an Iraq War vet who suffered a tramatic brain injury in combat. This injury has left him with severe noise intolerance along with many other issues that require him to avoid noise. HE LOVES these headphones. He asked me how much they cost, when I told him, he said they were worth every penny. He said he would have paid twice the price. We would recommend these to anyone looking for noise canceling headphones!
