Get relief from the din of travel with Sennheiser's PXC 450 noise compensation headphones. These around-the-ear headphones use active noise cancellation technology to reduce external sounds, such as airplane engine roar, so you can listen to your music at lower and safer volume levels. Tiny microphones built into the earcups pick up the sounds of your environment. Advanced circuitry then creates a signal that "cancels out" much of this external noise without affecting the sound of your music or movie soundtrack. A convenient "TalkThrough" button lets you carry on a conversation such as responding to a flight attendant without removing your headphones.
Generously padded earcups and headband lets you wear the headphones comfortably hours on end great for extended trips. The PXC 450s fold together for compact storage and fit into the provided soft belt pouch for convenient travel.
From the review Sennheiser PXC 450 headphones: Quiet and comfortable even at work
"It wasn't until I put [the PXC 450s] on that I became aware of just how much office noise I had gotten used to. They also performed well as headphones, delivering my music with a full, detailed sound. And the PXC 450s were so comfortable I sometimes forgot I was wearing headphones until I realized I could barely hear my coworker. Thank heavens for that talk button!"
