I have some experience with good quality headphones - having extensively used Shure 530PTH in ear headphones, Dr Dre Studios and others over the years. My experience with these is without the optional USB dongle.
Sound Quality - Good bass and Treble response. Not as punchy as Shures or Dr Dre monster Beats - but good travel set. Comes with a minijack lead if you want to use wires - the sound quality to my ear is identical. There is a USB dongle optional extra that may improve sound quality when paired with an iphone/ipod dongle.
Construction - Sturdy - Durable - Much more so than the Dr Dre Monster Beats. Excellent build
Bluetooth - Easy pairing. iPhone 3GS and 3G users note - without the optional USB dongle you cant control tracks with the headphones. But can control volume. I believe that this is a limitation of Apple's implementation of bluetooth but it does make it frustrating to use them in that to change tracks, playlists you have to still use the iPhone.
Call-handling - no complaints at either end - the microphone seems to work fine.
Noise Cancelling - Uses the second generation of Sennheiser's noise cancelling technology - Noiseguard 2. Also seen in the PXC450s over hear Sennheisers (which I find too bulky and unwieldy). Noise cancelling is frankly not as good as the Bose QC 15 phones nor the QC 3s which are similarly on-ear. Nor is it on a par with the Sony 500NCDs. Its ok. It does limit the ambient noise of say a jet engine or airconditioner at work. It doesnt handle noise like that of a metro/tube station. Its better than the Dres.Read more ›
Before we do anything we have to do some charging up. We can use the USB connection provided either your computer or the supplied USB mains adaptor can give us the power from the mains. A full charge will give you enough juice to last for at least 8 hours and up to 20 - depending on the mode you are using. The mains adaptor has all the attachments to work with sockets around the world.
In their least remarkable mode you can connect up these headphones with their supplied wire and connect them to an ipod, a stereo system, an in-flight entertainment system or whatever else you have lying about. Adaptors to make this easier are supplied. Sound quality is good from a firm bass right up to the high end - my definition of a good set of headphones is that they should frequently surprise you at some new detail of music you thought you already knew; these do.The fit is comfortable enough to wear for hours at a time and they don't leak excessive amounts of music out or outside noise in. These are not subtle little devices which nobody will notice you are wearing - but equally they are not giants that make you look like an audiophile from 1975: you look like somebody who loves music but still cares about looks.Read more ›
I just wanted to post that if you are using these for general commute (bus and train) then the extra cost (currently £100) of having the mm450 with NoiseGard 2.0 compared to the mm 400 without, is not worth it. I have not tried them on a plane where I suppose the noise to be blocked is a consistent rumble but again I wouldn't expect to see any vast improvement.
On a positive note, I'm using the mm 450s with my iphone 3GS and it surprisingly DOES control track skip, even though the manual says it doesn't, so hang fire on purchasing the BTD 300i.
On a negative note :), the manual doesn't include all the functionality. Had to google how to use Voice Control (press the bluetooth button briefly).
Today my PXC-250 headset is completely worn down, so I went shopping again. After a lot on consideration and quite a bit of research, I went back to Sennheiser, and bought the MM-450.
This headset offers a lot of the choices and options I missed on my old headset, but let's begin from the unwrapping.
The build quality feels excellent. Nicely done, comfy soft (replaceable) ear pads, hinges feels firm and precise, buttons clicks enough to feel them, but not enough to make to much noise. The battery compartment is the only thing that has caused me any kind of problem: The lock is very tight, and it's a bit tricky to take out the battery, if needed. (Taking out the battery is ONLY needed if you want to replace the battery, or charge it outside the headphones!)
I had some worries about the headset size. I have a fairly large head, and I usually need a large headband. One review said that this is a bit smaller than other headsets, and indeed it is. When I pull out the headband to its highest position, it just fits me perfectly (length of headband from ear cup centre to centre, fully extended is about 38 cm). The headband is also quite tight. This may take a little getting used to, since the headphones are pressing quite firmly against the ears. The reason for this tightness is probably to ensure a tight fit to the ears, to further insulate from surrounding noise.Read more ›
