If you're looking for a solid noise cancelling headphones for a decent price, these are it. I tried the Bose QC35 wireless, and here's my comparison: the Bose blocks out almost all low pitch noises (ex.- airplane, washing machine, dryer, and roommate watching television). What the Bose doesn't block out fully are other people's talking loudly, unless you raise the volume up a bit higher. Now, the TaoTronics: These are the most closely comparable to the Bose in comfort and weight. The ANC is actually quite noticeable, and blocks out my washing machine and dryer sounds well. However, they didn't block out loud TV volume (which Bose does), at all unless you raise the volume quite a bit.
