Tour**


Behold: the Sennheiser PXC 250-IIs.

These headphones are very light, very portable on-ear headphones that can fold up to be even more portable, as shown here:

The headphones have an in-line volume control that also doubles as an on/off switch for its active noise cancellation feature.

And here is what the headphones look like on a photorealistic human head, the part of which is played by our head and torso simulator, HATS.

In the box you'll also find a case and an airplane adaptor.

 

**Durability**     (*6.65**)*


The PXC 250-IIs seem to be very well made, but we're not so sure how that will translate into durability. The headphones are very thin, which typically means they're more fragile than larger headphones. Additionally, the cord guards aren't going to protect the cable very much.

 

 

**Aesthetics**     (*7.00**)*


The PXC 250-IIs look very well designed. Typically smaller headphones tend to look plasticky or cheap, but the PXC 250-IIs definitely don't fall into that trap.
