Nope..None of those headphones have noise cancelling, only noise isolating. The Carcharias are semi-open headphones, so they won't be as good as blocking out noise as the SB Arenas.

If you can grab the Arenas for 70$, by all means

Thanks Jack! I appreciate your help loads, I haven't gotten as much help from any other community I've turned to! I'll be picking up the SB Arenas ASAP

Thanks for all the help guys!

One thing I wish the PC350s could do is sound the way they should out of the box. Modding them does void the excellent Sennheiser warranty, which is a big minus in my books.

Plus at almost double the price of Carcharias/SB Arena, I don't think the OP really wants to pay that much

Yea, I don't regret getting the SB Arena. $140 is a bit heavy on my wallet, for audio purposes. I don't doubt the Senn's would've sounded great with a bit of drillin' and dampening, though.
