    Good reviews, thanks OP.

    Great drop in price - these were the "freebie" they including with the older "flagship" Sammy phones. They said its value was $400. Good joke

    • +5 votes

      They all have high RRP. The biggest joke is AirPods Max for $899 & no 3.5mm cable + airplane adaptor or standard USB-C charging.

        I got one for free when I bought my Note 10+, I have to say I would never have bought it even for $99, when I use it to watch movies on Youtube, the coversation is not that clear. Super inflated RRP and not that great compared to my Bose.

      You got it free with phone does not mean its bad. Sony also gives the 1000xm3 and xm4s free with the xperia phones in the markets it sells

      •  

        Correction, I did not use the words "its bad", I used the words "not that great" mainly for the inflated RRP. Any company that puts such a high price tag on any headphones, whether they were offered for free or not at the beginning must justify that price tag.

    Any idea this is the Mark 2 or the first version?

    ANC for 99? Really?

    • +6 votes

      I've got a pair, whilst it's not a Sony or Bose level of ANC it does take out a lot of background noise and hum, pretty good on the bus for instance. You'd certainly struggle to find anything better even close to $99.

          Not wireless, tho.

          Sorry, should have stated that as well, great sound quality, agreed - very happy with that aspect, just decent ANC though.

    I considered these when looking for budget anc last week when they where 109.
    Take a look at the reviews on the akg website.
    Not glowing reviews for after service.

    The main reason I didn't go with these was Bluetooth 4.2.

    I got the taotronics 085s for 67 in another deal and I am very happy with them

            @picket23: Image shows silver colour which was only old model black for newer. BT4.1 is older model BT 4.2 for newer. What they have in stock no idea

              @Kamppinator: These are first gen:
              Bluetooth v4.1

              •  

                @congo: Are you going off what is written on a website or physically looking at a purchased pair? First Gen only had Micro USB but my pair have USB C and I picked those up yesterday.

      Yep USB C on mine

      •  

        Can confirm also on mine (confirmed by partner who picked it up but awaiting to use them this weekend), USB-C and when I called to put a pair away they said it was the M2 model.

    Reviews are hit and missed.
    Mainly due to connection issues.

    I have stopped using my XM4 due to WFH and less likely to need ANC.

    Instead, I have gotten a few pairs of good open back cans and DAC/Amp. The audio quality is night and day.

      What do you have?

        Done the same thing more it less. Hd598se + Fiio e10k. I find the combination to be more comfortable, less fatiguing and better sounding compared to closed back headphones.

      • +2 votes

        I’ve got three open back headphones, the list is the purchase in right order.

        1) BT 990 Pro 250 Ohm
        2) Sennheiser HD700
        3) Hifiman Sundara

        DAC/Amp - Schitt Modius & Magnius

        Open backs are great for home use or long hours due to:

        1) Airy and not as hot when wearing for long hours
        2) The sound stage is massive, feels like you’re listening to speakers in the room rather than headphones
        3) I can hear if my wife is calling me (most important)

      Since WFH, I bought the XM3 to actively drown out the wife's noise.

    •  

      Agreed with you there on the sq, but I have kids and I love my ANC.

      Gonna get an iPad and AirPods Max the first discount I see at JB

    Original price $499 was for the MC2 model that was free with preorder of the Galaxy Note 10 series.

    •  

      You can get the M2 version around $140. M2 version is slightly better.

  •  

    I got the mc2 version if these and also the Sony Wh1000m3 and the Sony are a level better when it comes to noise cancelling, sound, app and comfort. But for $99 these will be hard to beat when the Sony usually go for 250 at cheapest

    Wondering…..What is different between Noise Cancelling Headphones and normal headphones? I have a normal headphone and it is good enough. I need to try the NC headphone at Hifi.

    • +3 votes

      Essentially the microphone array in these headphones is used to observe outside noise and creates a wave that is exactly out of phase, so it cancels the unwanted noise out, similar to how two equal waves colliding into each in the ocean would canel each other out.

      In practical terms it tends to be limited to sounds below 1000Hz in frequency, and only for regularly repeating noises (hum, drills sounds, engines, etc), but headphone earcups tend to reduce sounds over 2000Hz by around 20-40 dB anyway (the higher the pitch, the more it gets blocked by the headphone materials).

      Over time ANC will become better through machine learning (AI), but for now most mainstream products do a fairly limited version, maybe as much as 25 dB off the bass (below 200-250Hz) and maybe 25 dB off the mids (below 2000Hz), as is the case by the Sony XM4s.

      That being said, between the bluetooth and the ANC, the raw audio quality is much reduced (hence the need for machine learning down the line, to clean up the audio).

        I understand a bit… That's why many people complained when I take a call with a bluetooth headphone, earphone or bluetooth car audio. Thanks.

    I was able to order click and collect from Haymarket so definitely a chance to still pick these up.
