Ergonomics and Function forgotten in what could have been a great product

Summering: I bought these headphones as they promised not only portability, but also a high quality of sound. As a PRODUCT DESIGNER I was very disappointed and returned them the following day. Why? 1. ERGONOMICS While excellently made they have forgotten all about ergonomics. After about 20 minutes of wearing them I had pain around my ears and on the side of my head. A symptom of many on ear headphones which are simply scaled down over ear headphones.
Utdrag: The Sennheiser’s PXC 250 NoiseGards, work well in noise-cancelling mode to block low-frequency background noise. I’ve tried them on in many settings, ranging from routine workouts at the gym, to rock concert performances.

Summering: Great headphones - really easy to fold up and put in a pocket, but I find mine brake after approx 8 months of use (I do use them everyday!). Perfect in the office for blocking out sound, or on the tube!
Summering: I cannot use in-ear headphones as my ears are too small. I have standard Sennheisers for home use but I like the noise cancelling ones for the train (and sometimes in the office!). My impression is that the build quality has improved over the years.
Utdrag: Не смотря на брендовость фирмы и блок шумоподавления, эти наушники сильно расстраивают и явно не стоят потраченных на них денег, у нас их собственно по этой причине и не завозят, что мало кто будет таскать с собой наушники + электронику с двумя акб + смарт или любой другой источник звука, в сумме это пол кило на теле, постоянно оттягиваемое проводами.
Summering: I've had these headphones for the last 3 years (just got round to reviewing them now) and they're in use 3 or 4 times for a couple of hours at a time a week and they've performed beautifully since I first got them back in May 2011. The noise cancelling unit works tremendously well wherever you are and especially on trains or planes allowing you to more-or-less forget where you are and just enjoy your audio. Sound quality is very good with a good bass and clear tone.
Summering: We now have two of these, bought three years apart. Both work beautifully and are always taken with us when we are flying as it changes a noisy place into a most enjoyable one. Easy to use and put away and as the first one is now more than three years old quite robust.
Moderately effective against noisy bodily functions

Summering: I bought a pair of these to try to make working in a noisy crowded office more tolerable. My conclusions so far: - Air conditioning noise, computer fan noise: very effective at screening out this low frequency noise. - Talking, shouting: partially effective at screening this out, particularly with co-workers with deep voices.
