From the Manufacturer
Highly portable, the Sennheiser PXC 250 II noise cancelling headphones allow you to take off and then lose yourself completely when flying. Thanks to high-performing neodymium magnets, the PXC 250-II delivers a powerful, detailed sound with a wide frequency response, plus it's equipped with NoiseGard to screen out intrusive ambient noise.
NoiseGard technology cancels up to 80 percent of droning, fatiguing airplane or bus cabin noise without added bulk or size. They are also equipped with a convenient in-line volume control which enables you to adjust playback volume even when the music player is stowed.
They offer a closed, supra-aural design that provides for excellent passive attenuation of ambient noise. The newly-improved battery pack requires only a single AAA alkaline battery, and it lasts up to 50 hours--more than enough for a flight from Tokyo to New York (even taking delays into account).
Suitable for all types of modern music, it provides detailed sound reproduction with a slight emphasis on the bass. Other features include a steel-reinforced headband for high durability and included carrying case.

PROS: (1) Light weight and portability. When I travel, minimizing weight and space is very important, and these featherweight headphones are perfect for those of us who find ear buds annoying. I wore them for 9 straight hours on a flight back from France and they never hurt my ears or felt heavy. By contrast, when I've worn the Bose on transatlantic flights (American Airlines loans you a set if you fly business class), I can't go more than about 3 hours before they start to feel uncomfortable. (2) Low price -- less than half the cost of the price-controlled Bose. (3) They work just fine (only without the noise canceling) if the battery dies. (4) The new ones have a small volume control on the battery compartment which I found very helpful on a long flight.
CONS: Their light weight makes them a bit delicate. They must be folded and unfolded with care -- don't get them for your teenaged son. If he sits on them, they can break. My son has a pair of Panasonic noise-canceling ear buds that work almost as well as the Sennheisers and he has been unable to break them (yet).
MATTER OF PERSONAL PREFERENCE: They don't cancel as much noise as the Bose. Personally, I find the Bose a bit eerie because they cut you off from all ambient sound, which is not the way one normally listens to music. I prefer the Sennheiser because, when I am waiting for my plane, I can usually still hear the announcement that the gate has changed or they are beginning boarding. I guess if you want a "home theater" experience with huge bass sounds swirling around while Vin Diesel blows stuff up, get the Bose. If you listen to music, get the Sennheiser.
I give it 5 stars for portability and technology, and 4 stars for music quality (bass a bit thin) and its slightly flimsy construction, but they won't let me post a 4 1/2 star rating.
Whats new with the Sennheiser 250 II:
Smaller battery compartment: The New 250 II only needs one Battery verses two on the older models, which were a big draw back because they made the battery compartment big and heavy.
They also added a volume control to the NC control which is located on the stereo cable.
Also the stereo cable which entered and exited on the same side of the control box has been changed to opposite ends. I just clip box on my shirt and forget its there. Especially since I'm sitting for the whole flight.
Sound quality is very good. you will be able to watch TV, listen to music and block out engine noise (Plane, Car or Train)
You don't have to blast the volume to hear.
You will never fly without NC headphones again.
Light and comfortable.
Just be careful when you put them a way and do not store headphones with Battery inside. I First brought the PC100 6 years ago and they still work great and my kids have been using them. I just make sure I set them up and put them away.
On the old 100 and 250 and 300 the battery compartment/control box was too big. But I'm happy to say on the new 250 II this issue has been greatly improve.
I've owned 3 pairs of these now over the better part of a decade (At least one of them was a PXC 250 - I though). They sound great and they work very well, but there are 2 issues.
1 - while music quality is much better than the Bose noise cancelling headphones line, noise cancelling is much worse.
2 - the battery brick in the middle of the cable is a serious design flaw. It's heavy, awkward to use and always seems to get in the way.
On the flip side, if you can live with those drawbacks, which I can:
1 - it has an analog volume dial, which is a very nice feature.
2 - the sound is really clear and for an office environment, the noise cancelling is more than sufficient for your co-workers to resort to a nerf gun to get your attention.
If you're willing to spend more, the MM series are better designed, more compact, battery operated and have the same audio quality. I recommend those over these if your budget allows.
