Worth the wait and cost to get the latest version PXC 250-II,
This review is from: Sennheiser PXC 250-II Foldable Closed-Back Stereo Mini On-Ear Headphones with Noiseguard Active Noise Cancellation (Electronics)
I debated whether to get the original version of these very lightweight headphones but was glad I waited untill these became available and do not regret paying more than what the older version is now selling for. They are well made and very comfortable in use and fold beautifully (after a short learning curve) into a robust carrying pouch which can also carry a small I Pod or similar. The thin cable irritates some people, but I found it easy to extract from the pouch and stuff back in. The new, smaller battery case and control pod is not at all a nuisance - clips easily on your shirt or just dangles with hardly any weight. Sound quality and range is good for most music styles (I have broad tastes) and the noise cancelling very effective if not complete - but then you wouldn't expect total isolation with small over the ear phones. I used them on a long haul flight to Cuba - did the job perfectly - hardly noticed them on my head!
