From deals on office chairs to bargains on headphones! This time, we’re heading over to Amazon.ca where they are selling a set of Sennheiser headphones at a superb price. The Sennheiser PXC 250 II Collapsible Noise-Cancelling Headphones have an original price tag of $279.99… that’s pretty high and I don’t think you or I would actually pay that. But, they’re on offer and you can grab these headphones for only $98 with free shipping right now.
The price of these particular headphones on Amazon does seem to fluctuate up and down quite a bit. I’ve seen them drop to $98 before but it wasn’t for long. They did drop to $95 back in April, but that was quite a while ago. $98 is a really sweet price point for this item.
When reading the spec on these Sennheiser headphones, the first bullet point made me smile:
Neodymium magnets and Duofol diaphragms for audiophile grade performance.
I had to go out of my way and google what these things meant! Well, Wikipedia helpfully tells me that:
A neodymium magnet is the most widely used type of rare-earth magnet, is a permanent magnet made from an alloy of neodymium, iron and boron to form the Nd2Fe14B tetragonal crystalline structure.
Whoop for science! Apparently it’s pretty common for these to be used in headphones and loudspeakers, as well as a wealth of other appliances, such as your power steering! But I know you are curious, what about the Duofol diaphragms?
DuoFol diaphragm provides a wide sound stage with ultra-fast response and rest times.
Now, aren’t we more enlightened?
Regardless of the technology, these sound like a great price on a super quality set of headphones from Sennheiser.
When I first saw the image of these Sennheiser headphones, I thought they looked very flimsy. I think that’s probably not true though – they’re compact because they are collapsible. These headphones would be absolutely ideal for travelling and heading through airports, etc. Not to mention the noise-cancelling effect when travelling through a busy airport!
