The PX200 is essentially a sealed version (closed cans) of the PX100.

This depends on the size and shape of your ears. Due to the small size of the cans, it is very hard to get a good seal if you have larger ears. If you can get a proper seal then the SQ will be about the same as the PX100.

Go to headphone.com and you can compare the PX100 and 200 and a lot of other phones.

So It is not any better than the PX100...
Is it worth for the taking? Remembering the price?

if you think they will fit your ears, and you would prefer better noise isolation then, yeah go for it. If not, then stick with the PX100.


FWIW, I tried some px100's and wasn't particularly impressed. Although the bass was good and the highs passable, the mids sounded muted and flat to my ears. Thats all IMHO though, everyones ears are different and i know people who are very happy with the px100s.

If it fits your ears and if you want isolation, then yes. However, make sure you can achieve a proper seal or else it will sound worst.

With the PX100 and PortaPro, yes- I have both and prefer the PX100. However, I haven't auditioned the PX200- I have only read reviews of it from reliable sources.

I have owned the px100 in the past. Both my sons have the pxc150 noise cancelling phones. These are based on a px200 closed back headphone but also have a noise guard module in the headphone lead. So with the noise guard switched out they should sound the same as the px200.

Generally an open back phone will have better soundstaging than a closed back phone. Closed back phones can suffer from internal sound waves setting up odd harmonics, maybe a slight tendency to boom at the bottom end.

However, we all enjoy using the pxc150, they are nicely balanced and being supraaural and not circumaural, a tight seal is not needed to get the best sound. We also use open backed Grado and Sennheiser phones as well as very closed back studio type monitor phones.

If you can get the px200 for a better price than the px100, I would do so. They will be of more use outside and on planes and trains.
