The PXC 350 is a circumaural high-end travel headphone set with NoiseGard Advance technology for active attenuation of ambient noise.

The PXC 350 enables an unprecedented sound experience for people on the move, thanks to its adaptive baffle damping in combination with the patented Duofol diaphragms, which prevent unwanted partial oscillation and thus guarantee a highly natural, lifelike sound quality.

NoiseGard is an active noise compensation system which Sennheiser originally developed for use by pilots, who have to rely on good sound quality and efficient protection against ambient noise even in high-noise environments. NoiseGard actively compensates the noise, based on the physics principle of sound and counter-sound.

The PXC 350 features the NoiseGard Advance technology. This technology is a further development of the filter functions used in the original NoiseGard system, and enables even better active attenuation of ambient noise of up to 85%. It is of course also possible to use these headphones passively, i.e. without NoiseGard and without batteries.

The PXC 350 is foldable and is supplied complete with a practical transport case, 2 AAA batteries and audio adaptors (double mono and 6.3mm). Volume control integrated in the single-sided cable, which is detachable and replaceable, ensure maximum convenience for the user.

I tried a pair of these and I must say their performance was not good. Bose beat these by a long way. There is sometimes a set that you get from play.com made by goldring (NS1000) and they seemed to be better. Every now and then you see vouchers for these at a few pence short of £50 and they are well worth the money.

Seem to out of stock at the moment but have a look round.

Mmmmmmmmmmm, does "circumaural" mean they go round your ears?

OK, I'll see your opinion and I'll raise you.

I've been using these cans now for over a year in an office environment and for this price you will not get anything to touch them for comfort, quality and isolation. I also own the Goldring NS1000's and there is no comparison. I find the Goldrings uncomfortable, tight, hot and the sound quality doesn't begin to approach these. To my ears they sound like a £50 pair of headphones rather than £100. The wife is very happy with the smaller Goldrings, but I can't get on with them.

As for these Noise cancelling cans... well I have just left my pair at the mother-in-laws and I'm already missing them as she's got to post them to me. I've even phoned local hi-fi suppliers to see if they've got a pair of the PXC-450's as it's a good enough reason to upgrade.

On the down side the sound isn't amazing when the battery runs out, but at least you can still use them when there is no access to batteries (flight anyone?) and there is a noticeable hiss when the noise cancelling is activated. I consider myself to be very picky about my gear quality and even this doesn't put me off. I thought it would, but once the music starts you don't even notice it. And hey, there has to be some trade-off from shutting the world out.

I bought my pair for £120 and I still consider them a good investment. If I wasn't thinking about upgrading then I'd consider buying another pair of these at this price just for backup.

Oh and if you could point me in the direction of the nearest equivalent BOSE to these at this price, I'd be interested.
