So they are suitable for use in noisy environments without having to move to a secluded corner.

When the noise cancelling feature is turned on, steady-state, low-frequency noise is dropped by at least fifteen decibels (15dB) which the human ear recognizes as sound having dropped by half the surrounding noise.

The noise reduction unit makes use of two AAA batteries.

Apart from the noise cancelling feature which improves listening in noisy areas, the actual sound produced when listening with this headphone is excellent. The noise cancellation feature has little or no bearing on the quality of sound produced.

The frequency response of the Sennheiser PXC 250 range from ten Hertz to twenty one Kilohertz (10 Hz-21 KHz) which represents all manner of sound pitches from the deep bass sounds to the higher pitched soprano sounds.

Best price on the PXC 250


Many noise cancelling headphones do not guarantee sound quality as sound quality usually drops when the noise cancellation feature is turned on.

Technology is being developed everyday to address problems such as excessive background noise and a lot of headphones are incorporating this technology.

The Sennheiser PXC 250 headphone is one such headphone and though the bass quality is somewhat reduced when its noise cancellation feature is turned on, this is noticeable only by the most experienced audiophiles.

It still remains a good buy and adequately fulfils all the objectives set for it.
