Bose QuietComfort 35 : Perfect but encourages people to touch you

I have had the sony wh 1000xm2 headphones for the last year and they are amazing. My only issue with them is that with extended use, they would begin to hurt my ears. I decided to get another pair of headphones and heard very good things about the comfort with the bose so decided to give them a go. Having them for the last few days, i can confidently say that they are noticeably lighter and more comfortable than the sony’s. They sound great, a little less full than the sony but the comfort makes up for it. You can’t go wrong with either model and probably comes down to your individual needs. If you need comfort, then it’s easily the bose. If you love a full sound with deep bass then you will love the sony. Bottom line is you can’t go wrong with either modelupdate – they are amazing for phone calls. When i would use the sony, people would complain that the calls were always breaking up.

I took the plunge and went for these and got them for 229, i was pleased to see they cane with a travel case. . I’m not one for wearing this type of headset, i have the bose in ear headphones but found they don’t quite cut the world out for noise cancelling. . This new set did the job, but the old ears get really hot, so i found myself taking them off every now and then to let my ears cool down and let the air get to them. . Making phone calls worked great, one thing though, when i took them out of the case for the first time it took me a while how to get them back in, so take a picture of them first in the case. 229 is still overpriced though. Be good if they had a button to play on loudspeaker mode so if you felt like it you could leave them on the desk to play.

These headphones are very comfortable and the sound quality is great. However, i don’t give them 5 stars because there is a problem with the bluetooth signal, i don’t know why there is a lag with the sound. I can notice this when i am watching a movie or using the headphones with an electric guitar amplifier. The sound just takes a bit longer and its quite annoying, especially if you are playing an instrument. This is quite disappointing and i didn’t expect a bug of this kind from a brand like bose. I have checked online and i am not the only one with this issue.

Noise cancelling is quite amazing. I’ve never tried phase cancelling headphones before and it’s remarkable. They’re comfortable, light and work really well with google. A bit pricey but they are pretty good.

So i was going to buy the b&o h9i. I think the h9i still sound better imo but got these in the xmas sale for £260 and the h9i’s are £399. For £260 im very happy with these. The first pari arrived and there was a little distortion in the right can. I went through the amazon refund policy and voila, next day later, faulty ones picked up and new ones delivered. Amazing service from amazon there. Very light, very plasticy though. Noise cancelling is amazing though. Sound is better when noise cancelling is turned off. When turned on, bass seems hyped and some high mids are notched out. But after a minute or so, you forget about it. I’ve got a number of cans and these are very good imo. Not audeze level but for yomping around london, they’re awesome.

I’ve been on the fence about noise cancelling headphones for years. Many years of too much drum & bass means i’m going quite deaf and i also have tinnitus so i can’t hear or rather appreciate silence anyway. If anything i need the sort of background noise a harrier jump jet will provide during a hover to stop me being driven (further) insane. So, motivated by a tone deaf colleague who frequently seems to whistle just the right note to leave me feeling like i’ve just tried to clean my ear out with a rotary tool i decided to give it a go. Powered up but not playing any audio is a bit like wearing my granddad’s old industrial ear defenders. That alone is just weird, like having your head in a nearly sound proof bubble but no different to the defenders or ear plugs without the feeling you have a newspaper rammed into your ear hole. I don’t have to turn the volume up to the levels that gave me the tinnitus / partial deafness in the first place. There is still some sound leakage (and wind noise is amplified) but close your eyes and all the office irritants just go away. Which is actually the worst thing about them. Everyone has that colleague that doesn’t understand the internationally accepted code of conduct that wearing headphones means i dont want to hear what you had for lunch or watched on tv last night. Now these people will start touching you to get your attention to tell you these things.

I have had the liberty of owning both headphones. The bose qc35 series 2 and the brand new sony wh-1000xm3. I have used both for walking, aeroplane travel, travel on the underground in london and and general stuff like walking and around the house. The sony’s – greatly improves over the series 2 version of the headphones. They are a right fitting headphone, very loud and impressive base. You can fiddle with the base, treble and noise cancellation until your hearts content as it’s all adjustable via the app. The best thing about these is the noise cancellation. It is the market leader and has overtaken the bose in this area. They are comfortable and made to high standards. You can even adjust the noise cancellation at different altitudes such as in the aeroplane and this works well.

Bought as a gift for myself, recently got an iphone 8 and needed wireless so decided to go all out. The noise cancellation is superb and the sound quality is flawless. You can wear these for hours and forget you’re wearing them. Battery life and charge times are also highlights, i only need to charge once every few days at most and they seem to be full within an hour.Hopefully will last a long time to make the investment worthwhile.

Really impressed with the noise cancelling, if that’s what you’re looking for then these are the best. I have had other noise cancelling ones in the past, but these are amazing. I’m slightly nervous about the way the band bends and worried about breaking them. It might be the case that they feel delicate, but are actually quite durable, time will tell. I’m happy with the sound quality and the battery life is very good, although there’s 1 disappointing thing. That you don’t appear to be able to charge and listen to them at the same time, which is odd.

Boy number 2 wanted these headphones as his main present from santa this christmas. And santa delivered because he was on the good boy list due to him doing so well at school. Sadly though, he can no longer hear me. I shout him to tell him that i have lovingly prepared a delicious meal for him to eat but get no reply because he cannot hear me. I have resorted to sending him text messages with suitable emojis to let him know that dinner is read. My current favourite of the fire emoji and the dog face – can you guess what dinner was that night?boy number 2 thinks they are great, the headphones and the hot dogs.
