    i had both bose and last year sony .But sony feels more better than bose especially for noise cancelling

    It's baffling that Sony and Bose continued with Micro-USB this year. After getting used to the quality and convenience of USB-C, I'll never buy a Micro-USB product ever again. It sucks.

    I purchased the old model and ended up returning them. The sound quality and noise canceling were amazing. My problem was with the overall sound level. They simply weren't loud enough for me. I tried them with an S8, Note 8 and iPhone 7 Plus and they simply didn't play loud enough for me. I have a pair of Jaybird X3's and they have plenty of volume regardless of the device. I'm not suggesting that the X3's sound quality is comparable but again the overall volume is louder. Am I alone in my experience with this or are my ears just bad?

    You definitely should've wiped them, they seem greasy, the cushios and the band, ahhhh…

    I just bought sony wf 1000x. It's super good.

    Could you compare them to the Audio Technica dsr7bt which come in the same price range?

  • November 5, 2017 at 9:27 pm

    I have purchased these and feel that the quality and aesthetic is simply amazing. The ambiant sound feature is superb when in class or around others. The noise cancellation is a step ahead Bose and with more features it's definitely worth the money.

    I love the MDR-1000X and loving how Sony has made 1000Xm2 🎧 even more beyond compare

  • November 6, 2017 at 9:21 am

    Damn, i only just copped last year's model a month ago. Any major differences?

  • November 10, 2017 at 4:16 pm

    Why not mention Aptx HD and LDAC? Over LDAC and FLAC/DSD source files the music reproduction is amazing.

    I currently own mdr1000x and sony has released wh1000XM2. BUT your review says wh1000 MK2, WHAT IS MK2? DOES IT EVEN EXIST? If yes what's the difference between them? O.o

    Do you call this review? I think this is just another paid advertisement…

    You kinda look like the hipster version of Theon Greyjoy from Game of Thrones

    What is the model of the headphone stand used in the video?

  • January 20, 2018 at 9:42 pm

    No proper multipoint bluetooth simultaneous connection to 2 devices. Would go with QC35 (connects up to 8 simultaneously) if i had to choose again because of this feature. With the Sony's you need to manual disconnect on your BT device, to switch to another BT device very manual, it is little better with android phones with NFC tap to dis/reconnect not so with non NFC devices such as laptops, iPhones, mac etc.

    My original 1000x got a crack on the right side of the headband and many other people have had the same cracking in the exact same spot. I just exchanged them at best buy for the new m2 model with best buy's paid warranty, and I'm still worried that these new ones will eventually have the same defect.

    Does anybody know how to stop that god awful light indicator flashing non-stop??

  • May 28, 2018 at 1:11 pm

    Would these work for an office environment for taking Skype calls ?

  • May 29, 2018 at 11:06 pm

    Are these hot on the ears? I need this while commuting

  • July 15, 2018 at 5:33 pm

    I ordered this but I mean 200$ ahhhhhh it's so much I feel guilty maybe I should return them? I mean who cares about noise anyways

  • July 21, 2018 at 9:11 pm

    I'm listening to this on these headphone. I feel like all these reviews hype it up so much. THESE ARE NOT HEADPHONES FOR AUDIOPHILES. You can buy a 100 pound pair of non noise cancelling headphones with same sound quality (of course without the touch pad). I just got them today so I haven't tested it fully but for me it's not worth the price. My ears just arent sophisticated enough to notice a huge difference

    Yo, shave your beard, and get some better looking glasses.
