Review - Sennheiser HD 4.5 BTNC (Bluetooth / Noise-cancelling) Headphones

Posted by Headphones Canada on

This review of the Sennheiser HD 4.5 BTNC was done over a 30 day period with office, air travel and walking involved (not that much walking if we're honest...). Sennheiser are not new to the wireless Bluetooth noise-cancelling headphones scene. Their early models like the PXC 250 (and then PXC 250-II) are legendary and the PXC 550 sit at the higher end of their wireless ANC offering.

Westone UM Pro 20 Review - Headphones Canada

We often have people asking us for demonstrations and reviews to show the different between the Westone UM Pro 20 and UM Pro 30. We’ve always spoken highly of the UM Pro 30’s as a great balance with 3 BA drivers, so reviewing the UM Pro 20’s has always been on the list. We’ve been listening to the UM Pro 20’s for a couple of weeks and have tested them on the Vancouver Skytrain, flights to Toronto,...
