Sennheiser PXC450

The Sennheiser PXC450 is a closed, dynamic, ear-enclosing stereo headset with newest-generation active noise compensation (NoiseGard 2.0) for use, for example, with inflight entertainment systems. Passive and active tone suppression together enable brilliant music enjoyment even in noisy environments. The Sennheiser PXC450 noise cancelling headphones also include Sennheiser's innovative TalkThrough technology allowing direct communication with your environment, even while wearing headphones.

The Sennheiser PXC 450 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.

NoiseGardTM 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. NoiseGardTM actively compensates the noise, based on the physics principle of sound and counter-sound.

NoiseGardTM 2.0 has perfected the NoiseGardTM principle thanks to the use of optimised circuitry design and even more efficient processors. It also uses better quality microphones, which enable more sophisticated pick-up of unwanted noise. Specially developed filter algorithms enable improved active noise compensation of up to 90% (23 dB). It is of course also possible to use these headphones passively, i.e. without NoiseGardTM and without batteries.

Users of the Sennheiser PXC450 headphones who wish to communicate with their neighbours can do so without taking off the headphones: when the TalkThrough function is activated, professional quality microphones mounted on the outside of the headphones pick up all acoustic signals in the immediate vicinity. Unwanted background noise, such as the sound of the engines on a plane, is filtered out electronically to a great extent, so that only the neighbour's voice is passed on through the headphones into the user's ear in top audio quality.

The Sennheiser PXC450 is foldable and is supplied complete with practical transport case, 2 AAA batteries and audio adaptors (double mono and 6.3mm). Volume control integrated in the headphones and a single-sided detachable and replaceable cable ensure maximum convenience for the user.
