The frame is compact and collapsible for easy storage in the included case, while the headband and earcups are densely padded with leather-covered memory foam for extreme comfort. Its overall profile may have become bulkier than before, but it’s definitely a leap ahead in terms of wearability and portability.
This popular pair of Sennheiser cans is outfitted with a hybrid active noise cancellation called NoiseGard. This feature uses four exterior microphones to virtually block out any unwanted ambient sound. There’s also the VoiceMax, a technology consisting of dual omnidirectional microphones that eliminate external noise for perfect speech intelligibility. Even in noisy environments, these headphones can produce dramatically enhanced sound quality for music and clearer voice input for calls.
