Sennheiser recently teamed up with Mercedes, announcing a deal to supply DaimlerChrysler with rear-seat entertainment headphones for the Mercedes Benz S- and E-Class automobiles. Designated as the PX 200 Mercedes Benz Headphones, the units will be sold as an accessory for the optional DVD Rear-Seat Entertainment (RSE) systems.

Modifications to the ultralightweight PX 200 include an in-line volume control, "Mercedes Benz" and "Sennheiser" logos on the headband and a soft-pouch carrying case.

This is the second business deal struck by Sennheiser with an automobile manufacturer. The company also supplies a slightly modified version of the collapsible PXC 250 headphones with proprietary NoiseGard™ active noise compensation to Volkswagen for use with its RSE Package in the new Phaeton Sedan and Touareg Sport Utility Vehicle.
