I demoed the MDR-1000X and QC35 again today and ended up with the QC35. The SONY sounded better and the ANC is also more effective. However, for my needs the QC35 is adequate when it comes to SQ and ANC. I just like the design, comfort and simplicity more. Plus the MDR-1000X is more expensive than the QC35 here in Denmark. I got a pretty good deal on the QC35. Paid $350. Retail is $450 for the QC35 and $475 for the MDR-1000X.
