    How does this compare to mx3 and QC35?

    •  

      According to review, it' supposed to have a little weaker NC but better sound quality.

      •  

        Not as good as XM3s in any category for mine but I would say better SQ than the Bose (after making adjustments via CapTunes app which adds another pre-set option to your liking) but again Bose I would say is better in all other categories.

        •  

          Fair enough! Guess I'll stick to getting a bose or Sony.

          Sennheiser needs to catch up!

            @TightAssDrake: For $20-30 extra QC35 IIs or the XM3s would be the way to go imho. Should serve you well for many years to come (XM3s comfortably better than the Bose overall for mine but if you'll often be connecting to 2 devices at a time or making phone calls then Bose would serve your needs better).

            @TightAssDrake: Huh? Their Momentum line knocks both the Sony and Bose headphones out of the park in sound quality.

      I own the PXC 550 and used to own the QC35, but I gave the QC35 to my partner because I couldn't get myself to like them. Admittedly, the QC35 did come from a rubbish bin, so it was no financial loss to me…

      I tend to use my headphones for listening to music around the office rather than for NC on a plane or bus, so NC isn't a deal breaker for me. I would say that the QC35 was marginally better for NC than the PXC 550. The PXC 550 does a good job at NC: I've taken many flights since buying them in late 2017 and I cannot stand engine noise without the PXC 550 on.

      The only reason I gave away my QC35 was because I hated its sound profile. They were far too flat for my liking, plus I don't remember being able to find a way to change it on the headphones. On the other hand, the PXC 550s have a customisable EQ on the headphones themselves. The default EQ settings are too flat and dull for me, so I've adjusted it to suit my tastes.

      The one great thing about the QC35 is that it is so much more comfortable than the PXC 550. I feel as though my head is in a vice grip when I wear the PXC550, plus sometimes the top of my head gets sore from prolonged usage. On the other hand, the headband and earcups of the QC35 are definitely much more comfortable.

      I've only tried the MX3 in my local JB Hi-Fi once, so I cannot really do a fair comparison of all three…

    it's great, at this price.

    •  

      For $20-30 extra should be able to buy QC35 IIs or the XM3s nowadays. That would be the better option imo.

    I've got them, not sure about the Sony but I would buy the Bose this time as these PXC550 are quite uncomfortable, normal size ears, normal head size. My wife feels the same she would rather use the ones the airlines provide on long haul flights.

    However I still make the effort as they look much better than the Bose haha

    I feel comparing sound quality of bose, sony & sennheiser etc. is too subjective. They are all great in their own ways.
    You should try all and see what suits your taste best.

    •  

      Yea you wouldn't be choosing NC cans for sound quality. Overall they are all decent. Some are more comfortable and some have better anc.

  •  

    There is a new one.

  •  

    These are really good sounding headphones.

  •  

    I have these and the gesture controls on the right ear are handy. I got the qc35ii for the mrs but haven’t used them before as I’m happy with the sound and comfort of the 550’s

  •  

    Both the QC35ii & WH-1000XM3 are like 70-100$ more.

    This seems like an awesome price. Might bite the bullet.

    $288 does not include the case though!!!!!
