Sennheiser to ship new noise-cancelling headphones

New Sennheiser headphones

Sennheiser's new PXC 450 headphones use an over-the-ear design and the company's NoiseGard 2.0 technology (powered by two AAA batteries) to effectively eliminate outside sound. The headphones can operate for up to 16 hours with or without noise cancelling, as the speakers are driven by a separate battery, and wearers can hit the "TalkThrough" button to allow external audio via microphones. All controls are located in a cluster on a single earpiece, and using the power switch will fade audio in and out. The headphones will ship to the UK latest this month for 300 ($595), and come with a travel case, as well as adapters for airplanes and 6.3mm jacks. [via Tech Digest]
