DealNews is a website which reports on good deals found online (their tongue-in-cheek slogan is “How to go broke saving money”). And in today's update, they mentioned that SelectRebate offers Sennheiser’s PXC-250 noise-canceling headphones for $93. A press release on Sennheiser’s website gives this description:
With excellent sound reproduction and the active noise compensation system NoiseGard™, which can be switched on whenever it is needed, the dynamic closed PXC 250 tops the range of Sennheiser mini-headphones. Soft ring ear pads ensure a high level of comfort without unpleasant pressure. The extremely thin, ultra-lightweight voice coil is a guarantee for high efficiency and generous volume, both for low-impedance portable players and for high-impedance inflight entertainment systems. A special adapter is included for use on planes. […]
Considering that I have some airline trips coming up (for Thanksgiving and Christmas), the built-in noise-canceling appealed to me. And, $93 was also a good price — the lowest on PriceGrabber is $130. So, I ordered a pair :). Interestingly enough, the DealNews entry mentioned free shipping through a coupon code, but that must have already expired since it didn’t work for me. Even so, ground shipping was only $5.
