Sennheisers Latest Headsets


Sennheiser has updated its two closed-cup headsets, the passive-attenuation HME 110 and the active-noise-canceling HMEC 450. Revised ear cups provide passive noise attenuation and the company says the lightweight, extra-soft leather-look ear pads and their comfortably padded headband ensure optimum wearing comfort even on long flights.

Both units include high-quality, noise-compensated microphones on flexible booms, and both headsets are set up for stereo or mono use. The HMEC 450 includes the BP-4 battery pack with auto-shutoff feature, but it is connected through a three-pin DIN connector so that the headset can be hardwired into your airplane.

Sennheiser claims a total noise cancellation of 40dB for the HMEC 450. List prices are $249 for the HME 110 and $799 for the HMEC 450. Sennheiser products are widely distributed. On the company’s web site  at  you will find a rebate form for $25 off the purchase price of any Sennheiser headset.
