Design

Both the Sennheiser PXC 250-IIs and the Beyerdynamic DTX 300 ps are slick looking sets of on-ear headphones. Both are super light, and both have similar structures, but the Beyerdynamic DTX 300 ps can fold up into a much smaller unit than the Sennheisers can.

Frequency Response

As you can see from the comparison charts below, the Sennheiser PXC 250-IIs provide a much more even, adequately loud frequency response. It also seems to have its channels more in-sync.

Distortion

Though neither set of cans had an appreciable amount of distortion, if you want to split hairs the Sennheisers had less.

Tracking

Though neither set of headphones were perfect with their tracking, the PXC 250-IIs have a more even response.

Isolation

Given that the PXC 250-IIs have an active noise cancellation unit and closed metal backing to each speaker, it's natural that they're better at isolating you from the world by a longshot.

Comfort

Both of these headphones are super-comfortable over a long period of time, even if it takes a little while to adjust. You really can't go wrong with either one here.

Verdict

If sound quality and isolation are important to you, you may want to consider picking up the Sennheiser PXC 250-IIs instead of the Beyerdynamic DTX 300 ps, as they just blow them away in these areas. However, if this isn't worth the extra cash to you, the Beyerdynamic DTX 300 ps offer comfort, portability and affordability that isn't matched by the Sennheiser PXC 250-IIs.
