5.0 out of 5 stars I think it would be good if Amazon had bothered to supply it, 2 Mar 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sennheiser PXC 310 BT Closed Mini Headphones (NoiseGard 2.0 Technology,Talk Through Function,Bluetooth 2.1 Wireless Transmission) (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
The PXC 310 BT is one of a family of high end portable headphones from Sennheiser, very comfortable, excellent sound quality which bring out the music from your iPod. There's a variety of models, with the options of NoiseGuard and Bluetooth. Both are worth having, the Noiseguard counters ambient noise and actually helps protect your hearing because you don't then need to have the music turned up so loud. Then there's Bluetooth which allows cordless connection to your iPod Touch or iPhone (running the latest software) and I found it effortless to connect to both.

Beyond the PXC 310 BT there's the MM 450 which includes, in addition, microphones so that you can use it as a cordless headset to make and receive calls on your iPhone, neat to be able to listen to music and then take an incoming call.

The headphones come with the accessories (charger, cables, case) you'd expect and all works well. The compromise of very lightweight headphones is that they don't appear especially robust and I think they will need to be treated with care, not the sort of thing you can toss into a weekend bag without a second's thought.

In the end, I first ordered the PXC 310 BT from Amazon Marketplace and the delivery was a total shambles; I'm still waiting for a refund after being sent the wrong item, then offered a partial refund to keep it, then asked to choose an alternative product, then told they could not supply. In the end, I bought the MM 450 from another vendor which arrived next day. Most of the time, Amazon get things right; when things go wrong, they are paralysed into inaction.

Hi, I read on a review that when using the wire instead of the bluetooth, you cannot use the built-in mic on the headphone. Instead you need to hold your mobile phone to your mouth for talking. Could you please confirm this assuming you are notified with this comment. Thanks alot.
