Splendid product! Everything is spot on and met my expectations, from sound to build quality. The ANC is wonderful, very little static noise and highly effective in blocking surrounding sounds. Yeah its true that human voices could still be heard, but its expected since ANC blocks most low frequency sounds. Overall worth it, would definitely recommend
I had a pair of Bose QC35's and I loved them. Super comfortable, good noise cancellation and pretty good sound. I read that these Sony's are better in every way. A tall order ... that the Sony's more than live up to.
The noise cancelling is amazing. Sound quality blows the Bose out of the water. Nice and comfy too, and better battery life. Very, very happy.
About the only negative is they don't do multi device pairing like the Bose does; you can only be connected to one music source at a time.
I love these headphones. Sound quality is very good, across a range of genres, from classical to trance. They are comfortable, even for long stretches, and the noise cancellation is.....amazing. As is the battery life. The only things I don't like are: 1) The app is average. Features like EQ and other sound enhancements are advertised but you cannot use these if you want to maximize sound quality (vs. stable connection). Strange and this is not explained in the user manual. 2) You can only pair to one device at a time. Annoying as they are, these headphones still deserve a solid 5-star rating.
Fantastic headphones, easy navigation, very good noise cancellation. I tried them all, these have the best NC. However, they can get warm around the ears, Bose 35II have better circulation/feel. USB-C plug is a plus and very fast charging. Biggest downside: only connects to one device, Bose can stay connected to phone (for calls) while listening to another source.
Reviewers label these the 'Bose killers' and with good reason - Sony have finally built a piece of kit with better noise cancelling than the QCs. And the sound quality blows them away.
So comfortable, great fit on the head, I can wear them all day. Noise cancelling is extraordinary - to the point where you take them off and are shocked by how noisy everything is. Don't take my word for it - read the reviews. WHATHIFI gave them the award for best headphones.
After two weeks of use, including a lengthy international trip involving several flights, I'm very pleased with the purchase. Noise cancelling is excellent and sound quality is more than sufficient for my tastes. When I compared the Bose QC to the Sony's side-by-side, the noise cancelling on the Sony was without doubt superior.
Like many others was torn between Bose QC and these. Went for the Sony’s. Got a great price on amazon although slights more than the boses. Everything fabulous - sound, comfort, operability. You won’t be disappointed and will feel more of an audiophile, less of a mai stream conformist. Do it!
