Product Description

Amazon.ca Product Description

Wireless noise cancellation head phone.

From the Manufacturer

The ideal headphones for frequent fliers who want to be enveloped in their music rather than the drone of outside noise, the Bluetooth-enabled Sennheiser PXC 310 BT noise cancelling headphones provide a detailed sound image, while patented NoiseGard-2.0 technology minimizes background noise in trains or planes.

The PXC 310 BT combines all the advantages of travel headphones with the new apt-X Bluetooth codec--a sophisticated audio compression technology for true hi-fi quality when paired with a Sennheiser Bluetooth adapter (sold separately)--for wireless listening while on the move. It's compatible with countless Bluetooth enabled digital audio devices.

These closed mini headphones are embedded with NoiseGard 2.0 technology, which provides up to 90 percent active noise cancellation. They are also equipped with TalkThrough function, which is able to distinguish between background noise and speech, enabling you to continue your conversations with fellow travelers without removing the headphones.

When not in use, the PXC 310 BT can simply be folded away and stowed in the included carrying case. Convenient extras also help to make your journey more comfortable. To ensure that the lithium ion batteries for wireless use can be recharged anywhere in the world, the set includes a battery charger with adapters for a wide range of different countries.

Sennheiser's NoiseGard Technology

Sennheiser's NoiseGard 2.0 technology guarantees undisturbed music enjoyment and ensures that you have a relaxed journey. Irritating background noise is minimized by anti-noise, a technology that was initially developed for pilots and which has already been used successfully in the cockpits of major airlines for several decades.

And if you want to talk to the person sitting next to you, that's no problem either. The convenient TalkThrough function enables you to conduct a conversation without removing the headphones. At the push of a button, miniature microphones mounted on the outside of the headphones pick up the surrounding sounds while an electronic circuit filters out the voice of the person speaking to you and plays it clearly through the headphones.

What's in the Box

PXC 310 BT headphones, detachable audio cable (2.5 mm to 3.5 mm jack plug), in-flight audio adaptor (3.5 mm double mono jack), 1/4" (6.3 mm) audio adaptor, USB charging cable, multi-country wall charging adapter, rechargeable Lithium polymer battery (BA 370), carrying case

The sound quality of Sennheiser is the best for sure, and the noise cancelling option works reasonably.
The other good thing about this headphone is that you can still use it as a regular headphone when the battery dies.
It also has a talk option wich is really helpful when someone wanna talk to you

Easily The Best Bluetooth Headphones On The Market July 28 2010
By Dion Hinchcliffe - Published on Amazon.com
I've had a pair of Sennheiser PXC 310 Bluetooth headphones for a couple of weeks now. I've purchased many A2DP stereo Bluetooth headsets in the past and can say I'm a fair judge of the comparative sound and build quality as well how well they work as a useful headset.

Here are the pros and cons of this terrific piece of audio technology after using it nearly daily.

PROS:

- Very good build quality. Not as high as you might expect for the price but better than everyone else's except the top of the the line Sony BT headset.
- Nice big controls. Most headsets get this wrong and make the controls too tiny to adjust easily while biking or jogging.
- Amazing, truly mind-blowing sound. Extremely crisp, punchy bass and ultra clear high trebles. No other Bluetooth headset I've ever used sounds nearly as good. This is where the expense justifies itself alone in my opinion.
- Long battery life. This headset takes a listening and keeps on ticking. I recently ran it through an entire cross country flight. Can't be beat.
- USB charging. No need to pack another charger, this one has a mini-USB connector so you can use your laptop or existing USB charger.
- Talk through. A nice feature that allows you to talk easily without taking it off.
- A really good case. It's not a hard case, but it fits extremely well and has a useful accessories pocket.
- Folds down very small. Given that it's a full-sized headset, it's surprising how small it folds down to.

CONS:

- The Li-ion battery pack pulls out too easily. It's not a major problem but disconnecting it after charging often pulls out the whole battery. It's easily reinsertable but a device of this price should not have this kind of obvious mechanical flaw.
- Tiring on the ears after a few hours. This an ON the ear headset, not an OVER the ear and it grabs pretty tight if you have a larger head. Ear fatigue sets in after a couple of hours but is manageable.
- Active noise canceling doesn't seem very powerful. A huge attraction for those that care about audio quality is that it is noise cancelling, one of the few Bluetooth headsets to do so. It just doesn't seem to be very powerful, yet the sound quality is breathtaking even in a noisy plane so not sure this is really a big problem.
- The Bluetooth LED is big, bright, and blinky. You'll get stares if you wear it since it practically beacons its presence.

In short, I'd buy it again in a heartbeat and really hope they keep making these. Finally, the virtually perfect Bluetooth headset.

Very good noise canceling headphones. The bluetooth works well. Not the most comfortable headphones I've worn, though Dec 14 2011
By David Pearlman - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product
I collect headphones. Not intentionally, perhaps. But as my headphone box attests, I collect them. I head Sennheiser, Bose, Sony, JVC, Altec Lansing, Ultimate Ears, Grade, and many more. Some I like, some I hate. A few I gravitate toward repeatedly (like the Sennheiser HD600s for home listening, or the Bose QuietComfort IIs when flying, or the Ultimate Ears for the gym or mowing the yard).

I can't really defend my collection. I am not sure I can even explain it, except to say that (with the possible exception of the Sennheisers) I'm always wondering if there's something better out there...

Anyway, I got a pair of these Sennheiser PXC-310 phones to test. Now, I own a previous model in this series, the Sennheiser PXC-250. Those are small and quite comfortable, and the sound is very good. But the noise cancellation is so-so (owing the small earpads and on-ear design).

By comparison, these PXC-310 phones have bigger earpads. They are still ON ear (not over the ear, like the Bose), but ON ear. The fact that they are bigger results in better noise cancelation than the PXC-250s. BUT, and this is a BIG but, the fact that they're bigger and they're ON ear means that with extended listening they start to bother me. It's not terrible, and for an hour or two, I'm fine. But eventually, I find that bigger muff on-ear design starts to give me a headache. I don't get that with the over-the-ear Bose (my go-to phones for airplane listening, meaning they stay on for hours), nor with, for example the Sennheiser HD600s (also over the ear).

On the other hand, the sound quality of these headphones is better than the Bose: More neutral, and, in contrast to the pains induced by the physical construction, less fatiguing for anything approaching serious listening.

The Bose also don't offer bluetooth connectivity. I found the bluetooth on these worked well. I own a previous pair of bluetooth headphones, the JBL Reference 610 phones. These work as well as those, and I like the sound of these better. I also like the aesthetics of these better. Until I obtained these, the JBLs were my headphones of choice for bluetooth listening. Now they're in "the box" and these Sennheisers are my choice when bluetooth is being used.

If you're asking whether bluetooth is worthwhile...Don't think of it as a way to work at your computer or near your bluetooth enable ipod without a cord. Think of it as a way to walk around your house with a good sounding set of headphones talking to your PC or mp3 player in another room. Once you start using them this way, you'll love them...

Overall, these are very good headphones. I am very happy with the sound, especially for so-called travel headphones: Neutral, and not fatiguing. Much better than heavily hyped (and expensive) competitors such as Bose. The active noise cancellation is good. It isn't as good as over the ear headphones, which combine active noise cancellation with the noise isolation that type of design offers. On the other hand, these look a lot less massive (and nerdy) than many headphones with that design. My main complaints would be that the on the ear design can be uncomfortable for very extended listening (although an hour or so is fine), and that the price is fairly high. But try them yourself. If they're comfortable for you, you can't go wrong with these.

310BT Review April 18 2011
By Damir - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Headphones are great, there could be some improvement to the battery compartment but overall they're well built and offer good sound quality. If they could be had for $250, that would be even better.

Fast shipping from BestPriceAudio, would buy from again.

UPDATE:

Well, it's been about a year since I bought these and used them daily. About 3 months ago the battery stopped charging. I plug it in and nothing happens, Sennheiser refused to fix it because they don't cover batteries even if there was a manufacturing defect. On top of that, they refuse to honor their 2 year warranty unless you purchase their products from an authorized seller, I bought mine from BestPriceAudioVideo.com over Amazon.

I ended up buying 2 new batteries and everything went fine until this morning when I tried turning the headphones on. Nothing! Nada!

So, now I have a 300 dollar paperweight.

I can't believe this, these headphones retail for 500 bucks, yet can't stand normal use for a year.

Great headphones June 11 2010
By VidMan - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Headphones are a very nice pair with excellent sound. Overall balanced sound in bass, mids and highs. Connection to bluetooth is effortless. Used on laptop via a Sennheiser BD300USB and on LG Touch via bluetooth. All controls are accessible. Also used on Ipod Touch 3G. Controls did not work and Ipod bluetooth had static and wander when placed in pants pocket so I purchased Sennheiser BD300i transmitter for Ipods. This solved all problems with strong reception, full control and sound actually improved. The BD300i also gave me full controls from my Nokia BH905 bluetooth headphones. These phones are lighter and more portable than the Nokia 905s. Very good purchase. I do have to admit they are like many have said, a little tight. I have carefully bent them open more slightly, but after a couple of hours they begin to feel like a vise on your head.

Opinion from a Non Techie March 20 2012
By RM - Published on Amazon.com
If your looking for a review that will go on endlessly about tech details and bass versus treble, look elsewhere for a review. However, if you want to know how an ordinary, not overly critical person feels about this product, you might like my review. First of all, I was very fortunate to get these headphones as a gift, so I didn't have to pay the admittedly high price (though Amazon's price is quite good). Second, I hate earbuds. They never fit right, always hurt, and I never get good sound quality. On a plane, you may as well give up and stare at the seat in front of you. I wanted headphones that were small enough for travel, that didn't have to go in my ears and had noise cancellation as an option. I really like these headphones. They aren't heavy and adjust well to my head. The bluetooth feature is awesome and works great. I find I use the noise cancellation pretty much all the time because it makes the sound much richer. All in all, I like these very much and recommend them highly.
