Sennheiser launches PXC 480 wired travel headphones
Audio specialist Sennheiser introduces the PXC 480 – a high-performance wired travel headphone. Sharing the essence of the recently launched PXC 550 Wireless, the PXC 480 offers supreme noise cancellation, excellent comfort and superior battery performance.
Whether short hop or long haul, the PXC 480 is the perfect travel companion. Featuring NoiseGardTM hybrid active noise cancellation and a truly impressive battery life of up to 50 hours, the headphones provide comfortable, uninterrupted listening for any journey.
“Our new PXC 480 has been shaped around the needs of the discerning business traveller who demands a noise-cancelling headset that does not compromise on performance, style or features,” said Dr. Christian Ern, Head of Portfolio Management Select at Sennheiser. “Whether you want to focus on work, enjoy a movie or escape into music, it delivers an upgraded travel experience. The PXC 480 brings the essence of our PXC 550 Wireless to the wired realm.”
The new travel headphones offer supreme flexibility and ease of use: When not listening to music, the PXC 480’s NoiseGardTM can also be used to create an oasis of calm whenever needed, simply by detaching the cable. There is also a TalkThrough feature that makes it easy to hear and talk to others without removing the headphone – ideal to hear announcements or speak to fellow travellers.
For the business traveller on the move, the PXC 480 can be used as a headset for staying connected: It features an inline smart remote and high-quality microphone that makes it convenient to use for clear phone calls.
Sleek design and class-leading ergonomics
Crafted from high-quality materials, the elegant PXC 480 is built to be at home in the premium environment of business class, while also being tough enough for a life on the go. It offers supreme comfort thanks to its minimal weight and its earpads that have been designed in accordance with Sennheiser’s dedicated research into the ergonomics of the human ear.
The fold-flat, collapsible design of the PXC 480 makes it easy to discretely store in the supplied travel case. The headphones also come with a USB cable and IFE adaptors.
Sennheiser’s new PXC 480 will be available from November 2016.
