I don’t have one device that uses usb-c. So in this case Bose wins. All other nose devices are overpriced and sound bad. Bose aviation pilot headsets rock too.

I tried the Sony's and man, I was blown away by the sound. For reference, I use the ATH-LS200 on a daily. Not the best, but definitely better than average. I was very impressed by how the Sony retains a wide sound stage, though a bit heavy on the bass. The noise cancelling is definitely the best feature though.

I still don't care and wear my mmx 300 in public. I know I look like a douche but I don't care because they sound great and the physical noise damping is great. also in my opinion there is no headphone more comfortable than beyerdynamic. Very good ear pressure and awesome padding. Only drawback would be that they are not wireless.

You've entirely missed the garniture capabilities. For some it's important to be able to use the headset for conferences - how easy is to mute the microphone and to know if you actually put it on mute?

BOSE a highly overrated company that manufactures inferrior audio components that fail to compete with equipment in a pricerange that undercuts many Bose products. A speaker corp considered highly of by average consumers who have never compared bose to anything other than their $50 radio. No Highs, No lows, Must be bose. Let the hate begin 😂
CoasterFreak 4 घंटे पहले
+First Name Last Name totally understandable. Noise cancelling is great and I have experienced bose noise cancelling myself and compared to most its far superior. But again for it lacks sound quality compared to other high end earphones.

One of the primary features of headphones like these is the noise cancelling. Show me a better headphone that can do that passively. I agree the sound stage of Bose isn't great, but the pairs here aren't focused on only sound reproduction. Active noise cancelling is expensive, and is a great feature. That's the purpose of these headphones. They're not Sennheiser 598s or 800s with a preamp. They're meant to isolate screaming babies on an airplane.

I`s rank Bose as the winner any day, never had a bad Bose product, and if they match in price also, all in all you will get a higher quality product in my opinion (worked as a sound and video instalator for many years). BUT why is there no talk about the battery life on the units? Which one lasts the longest of the four? If you have a long flight that is importent information I would say. And also what does usb-c fast charging help out with if you can only use batteri banks you bring along on the trip and such? Do you even get batteribanks with usb-c pluggs? Well I digress, I am sticking to my Bose for now, with the Sony on a close second for sound quality alone =)

I'm hesitating even watching this video because Linus simply isn't an audiophile. Sennheiser, Audio Technica, Audeze, and a few other top dogs will always reign supreme, because they care about sound quality.

Beats are the headphone equivalent of overpriced celebrity beauty products. They have a pretty package, but that's about it. They're so cheaply made that you'd be better off buying literally anything else. The only reason beats cost so much, and the only reason they sell is because they have Dr. Drey on them. Same with Britney Spears perfume, Kylie Jenner lipstick, and Kat von Dee eye shadow. It's literally no different than the cheap shit you get at Walgreens. You're paying for a name.

The biggest win for me personally, is that I work on a commercial fishing boat, where we will be wearing headphones for 16 hours a day for 90 straight days, and in the really harsh environment, only the 2nd gen and newer beats hold up to the heavy amounts of salt water in the air. The longest other brands of headphones have lasted in these conditions were about 50 days where as beats just don't seem to be influenced by the rough conditions.

@linus stuff that you missed on the Sony: Put palm over right earcup to let sound leak (useful during conversations), ambient noise cancelling, ATM regulator, 30 hour battery life (got 29 in real life), EQ and other settings from the app. Also, both the Bose and Sonys have Google Assistant AND Alexa. Also, Bose and Beats don't support many audio codecs, Sony exclusively supports LDAC.

I’ve been vouching for the Bose QCs ever since I bought a pair of the first QC gen 2 years ago. Bose IMO is the king of sound devices. The noise cancelling is amazing too, I use them almost every day and even to sleep. 100 out of 10

I have both the Sony's and Bose - get the Bose. They're almost identical, but the big thing for me is the Bose can connect to 2 devices at once, and they seem to remember connected devices better. I go from my phone, to my PC, to my laptop, and the Sony's you have to turn off or disconnect the headphones from each device, then manually connect it to the device you want to use, where as the Bose can much easily switch between 2 devices. This is a huge feature I've grown to really like. If you're only going to be using it on one device mainly, then go with either the Bose or the Sony's, whichever one is cheaper or on sale. They're really about the same.

I get 20+ hours battery life and can’t hear the plane takeoff with the qc35 at 50% volume. Bose invented noise cancellation and has lead the field since it started. Supremely comfortable, regular firmware updates, and solid performance and reliability for 2 years and hundreds of hours in flight. I even sleep with them on in beds sometimes if I can hear neighbours in hotels...The only thing i dislike is you cannot charge and listen at the same time. That being said, 15 minutes charge gets you 2 hours play time.

Y'all never mentioned that the Sony headphones have the ability to turn off the noise cancelling by putting your hand over the right side. And you can adjust the pressure profile to fit your specific person in the app because they know everyone is different and different things affect pressure and noise cancelling

Linus's request for USB Type C connectors on everything reminded me of something I heard recently in discussions about the upcoming Raspberry Pi 4. Apparently they'll be sticking with Micro B for the power connector because Type C isn't designed for rugged applications like what some folks will be using a Pi for. If so, I feel like some headphones that cost several hundred bucks might be a case where Micro B would be preferable. But is it really true? Would a Micro B connector be inadvisable for certain applications where Type C might fail?

Personally I pick up beats headphones and throw up over myself screaming "HOW CAN A NORMAL HUMAN BEING PUT UP WITH THIS SHIT", then I realize they can't, they just feel so bad about spending so much money on completely shit headphones that they can't admit to anyone, even themselves, that buying beats was a bad idea.

No mention of battery life, no mention of connectivity (several devices at ones etc.), no mention of EQ settings, no real show casing of all controls. For a 17 min long video, especially, this lacks in so many ways; real thin. This format could have made this so much better, but its way to thin.

i used to use the stock akg pods that came with my galaxy s8+ when i worked (Lawn care/landscape) i wanted an over hear headset for comfort as well as try to drown out alot of the noise from the mowers as well as a better sound. I went with cowin e7 pros because they were cheap and had pretty good reviews. a great headset although not so durable but we're rough on everything so not surprised. my only complaint is there seems to be some interference in the noise cancellation switch as dust and debris accumulated but if i just dont use it the interference goes away

Been considering those Sony headphones for a while. This video has helped validate my choice in dream headphones. They may not have won anything here but I've tried them at Best Buy, and seeing that the rest of the options really chalks up to personal preference gives me confidence in buying.

buying beats solo3 is the best thing i've ever done, have them at work (idustrial painter) works so Fucking good, noise cancelling at the big rumbles is fantastic and the comfort is out of this world, they slay beats to hard here and guarantee that 90% of the guys in the comments havent tried them on and fully used them. Edit: Also they have a phenomenal battery life.

I have bought the old Bose QC 25 and I must say that the noise cancelation is really amazing. BUT: the sound is honestly nothing to write home about, especially for that price. I have expected so much more from them since everyone seems to hype Bose headphones. I mean they sound okay-ish but nothing more. If you compare them to better headphones like my AKG K702 then it's a difference like day and night. Even my Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro sound just so much better and they are made to be portable as well. The Bose QC 25 just lack clarity and especially in the high frequency range they really lack detail. They have loud bass but honestly for my taste it is just way too much. So you are left with deafening low end and okay-ish mids and pretty poor highs.

I listen to music and watch movies and shows with my headphones so I don't bother room mates. Long term wearablility is number 1 for me, then storability/device compatability. The Sonys feel like winners, noise cancellation is a great bonus for flights or noisy roomate nights

Unlikely that no one sees this, but try Plantronics RIG800HD (I presume HX anything will do!) wireless and use optical output to skip the default audio interface -> get the signal to the headphone DAC. They sound like $1k+ headphones being $100 headphones while the most comfortable wireless headphones you'll ever wear. Absolutely ridiculous value. And no - I do not have anything to do with the company. Just a friendly tip that completely jaw dropped me after testing dozens of pairs.
