    Before you spend £$ 350 on one of these, just try a pair of Audio Technica ATH M50x BT's. For 1/2 the price they sound 90% as good for 90% of people. For audiophiles they might be preferable. For less than £$ 100 try Sennheiser HD280Pro's with an MPOW Mk2/TaoTronics Bluetooth receiver. You'll be surprised how good they sound...even without noise cancelling tech.

    You need someone with glasses to try these on and test them thoroughly for 6 hours without removing them. Glasses push into the side of your head when you're wearing over ear headphones so the ultimate comfort test is to have someone with glasses try them on

    Always had beats I was quite the snob when it came to headphones. Warranty was good. That’s it. I got amazon August ep650 for like $70 and everything about them is good. I still make people try them (5years later no issues and used heavily) and people are blown away of how the6 sound. They leak sound so not meant for a flight etc but ya. Fuck 5e top brands like beats and Sony.

  • PHeMoX

    It makes perfect sense Bose and Sony are better. Beats is an insanely popular C brand really. By the way, it's false to suggest 'cheap sounding' headphones always overstate the bass. It's also half about how people prefer a sound that's heavier on bass contrary to heavier on high frequencies. Think the camera saturation in Samsung smartphones, versus a more bland saturation in something maybe more life-life. Thing is, photos with a slight oversaturation tend to look better. At the end of the day, people are stupid buying Beats headphones if it is about literal audio quality. They're some of the most mediocre out there. Total waste of $350 for something you probably shouldn't pay more than $99 for.

    Apple is not the king of anything. Their iPods had some of the SHITTIEST buttons and controls EVER. The Apple Watch has controls that basically don't really work at all. And the iPhone is mostly all about the touch screen control anyway. Not to hate on Apple, but COME ON Linus, that brand is all about aesthetics and not nearly as much about control or we would have seen more customisation functionalities and 'smarter features' years ago.

    I have used many headphones and currently own Sony, Bose and Beats. And I usually grab beats. It’s amazing how hateful people are. And how they go on about “fanboys” if you like beats. What if you like Bose? You a Bose fanboy? Truthfully it seem that the blind conviction isn’t for beats here but against them. So would that be a hateboy?

    Something you guys really missed out on is the terrible quality of the microphone on Sony headset. A lot of users are having problems. My pair sounds worse than the 9 USD in ear buds when speaking to other people. Some have returned theirs and gotten slightly better ones. The first call i made with them I got the question "are you calling from the bathroom or something I can hardly hear you". Good noise cancelling our not. To me that almost makes them unusable for me.

    This is the best way to review headphones 🎧
    Comparing to at least two other headphones 🎧
    I bought them because they were on the list of an audiophile headphone article of what’s best, i was going to get the Sennheiser HD600 but i wanted to be able to use my phone and blast the crap out of my music and have volume I find hard to bare sometimes.

    whats to consider with the bose and the sony is though, that bose does not support as many audio codecs

    its okay if youre using ios / macos because it supports aac but if youre on windows its going to sound worse

    sonys do support aptx and aptx hd (and ldac but i dont know much about that one) which will make your music sound quite better compared to sbc (which the bose will use if youre on a windows computer, not sure if android works with aac)

    and yes, you do notice the difference between aac and sbc

    I had the Bose for like 2 weeks then they broke for no reason and bose refused to repaired them so i bought the Beats for 180€ and they clearly don’t sound as good but, the noise canceling on the bose is very unatural, i don’t like it in the street but i haven’t tried it yet in an airplane. Also the bose hurt on the top of my head a lot when wearing them for more than 30 minutes. My favorite pair of headphone i got thought are the Parrot Zik 3 which i believe you can’t get them out of Europe so you may have never heard of them, but they are amazing. If the battery die you can still use them passively with the Jack. They sound better than the bose fore sure and they let you customise the sound signature in an app and customise the noise reduction which to me is way better than the bose. Sadly i’ve been using mine intensively for 3 years now and the cushion are completely destroyed and you can’t easily swap them which is stupid.

    I have owned 2 sets of the Bose headphones. Admittedly, they were the wired version, so I can't complain too much about the failure of the leads into the headset. However, both pair failed structurally after less than 1 year. The plastic used in their construction became brittle and broke. Not the head band portion but the "c" shaped bit that attaches to the over the ear phone/speaker part. (Sorry, don't know the term). Hope they've fixed this. Won't spend another $200+ dollars on these again.

    Did they miss something on the Sony headphones unless it's a different model...with the a $300+ model I tried, you could simply hold your hand over the left headphone to temporarily turn the noise cancellation off if someone is trying to talk to you. Super nice feature in my opinion.

    Also on the Sony I think if you hold the noise cancelling button it calibrates to the noise around you. So if you are on a plane and calibrate it should do a better job of blocking it out. I did not see them do that before the test.

  • Nick Young
    Nick Young 17 часов назад

    Did he say that the Bose are the only ones with an on off switch? I have the older Sony model (the v2) and it has a button right under the other controls that turn them off after about 1 second press. Did they remove that on the V3?

    If I'm spending $350 on a pair of headphones and the sound sucks, you better believe I'm going to complain. I don't buy headphones for a fashion accessory, I buy them because I want to listen to music, you dingus. They'd better sound good. That said, I agree--I'd have either the Sony or the Bose in this arrangement (though i do really like the MS' interface. Shame the audio quality stinks)

    TH3REDSP1R1T 19 часов назад

    The gym i use to go to on a daily basis, a lot of people used beats headphones, Im like, what the fuck. Why you buying this overpriced crap?
    Beats is only successful due to the name of Dr. Dre, plus they spend more on marketing than anything else or almost, since they do that you'll see ads all over for beats which makes people think "oh they must be popular" which leads to a sale. I hardly see ads for a pair of Sony headphones, sometimes a pair of Bose, but when Beats was starting to get it's name out they were all over the god damn place. Beats overall worth is at least $100 or less, otherwise, Sony or Bose they both kick ass.
