Sennheiser PXC 450 rated Best Noise Cancelling Headphone

Well I said “Potentially crushing the BOSE QuietComfort headphones like a bug” when I first posted about the Sennheiser PXC and I wasn’t far off the mark.

This October What HiFi? have given the Sennheiser PXC 450 “Cloak of Silence” headphones the 2007 award for ‘Best Noise Cancelling Headphone’. Sennheiser are delighted but, of course, were confident that their product was the best before us journalists even got our greasy paws on one.

The PXC 450 retail for about £300, but a little bit of searching can get the price a few beer-rounds under this mark.
