Instructions for use
The PXC 350 headphones
The PXC 350 are closed, dynamic, circumaural stereo
headphones with NoiseGard Advance active noise
compensation technology, designed for use with e.g.
in-flight entertainment systems. Passive and active
noise reduction enable you to enjoy music even in
noisy environments.

NoiseGard Advance
The NoiseGard Advance active noise compensation
system is based on the principle of cancelling out
sound using “anti-sound” (phase-inverted sound).
Tiny microphones pick up low-frequency ambient
noise (up to 1 kHz) near the ear. The NoiseGard
Advance electronics use this noise to generate a
sound wave which is the exact opposite (IE: at the
same level but polarity reversed – 180° out-ofphase), the effect being that the polarity reversed
signal cancels most of the outside noise.
Additional features
y Outstanding sound quality due to patented
adaptive baffle damping and Duofol diaphragms
y Optimum protection against ambient noise due to
NoiseGard Advance active noise compensation
y Great for travel: comfortable, rugged and foldable
headphone construction with single-sided cable
y Designed for use with in-flight entertainment
systems and audio, video and game consoles
y Without the detachable audio cable, the headphones can be used as passive hearing protectors
