I'm not being sarcastic at all. I don't get a break of seal in general use from walking around with these at all and pressing on the pads doesn't help identify breaks in te seal but does cause air to pull/push through the pads. The material used may be partly to blame for the added audibility of the air flow or it may be due to the mics and ANC but it is not a real life scenario so is not something I think tells us anything about the real life usage.Under what...
Some more reviews http://nerdtechy.com/sony-mdr1000x-review https://www.dailystar.co.uk/tech/news/548274/Sony-MDR-1000X-review-noise-cancelling-wireless-headphones-perfect-accessory-iPhone/amp Regards tonality and walking I don't have many, if any, issues and if there are then it's 99% certain I'll be in an environment where outside noise plays its own part. Similarly with testing tracks at full volume etc - if you are never going to listen to the headphones at full...
Slightly more negative view and the only person I've ever read who prefers the Bose sound signature http://uk.pcmag.com/headphones-reviews/84835/review/sony-mdr-1000x I'd also hazard a guess that they may not have really experimented with the NC Optimiser as in my experience, and others, it definitely makes a difference and if it's something 'purists' should be worried about I'd politely suggest they wouldn't be in the market for an ANC/BT headphone in the first place...
I mowed the lawn with them on the other day and walked around the house a lot and haven't experienced any issues with the seal - I expect it was just a physical fit issue in that instance.   Regards pricing I know that someone bought from Dixons Travel Edinburgh for £270 so significantly cheaper. I admit I'm a bit peeved having paid full price - especially as I am traveling soon and could go to the store in the airport but when I got these it wasn't clear that it was an...
They've been available on the Sony site for a little while (a week or so) - that is what triggered me to ring around but when I did no shops had stock but were expecting shipment in the next week or two so I would still recommend ringing around as delivery times might be faster with an in-shop purchase vs. online.   Best of luck
I think I got lucky but I got mine direct from a Sony Store last week (Friday). It was the only pair they had in the store room and they had no main stock for the shop or pre-order customers but were expecting it in sometime this week I bought from Harrow - the other local(ish) shops didn't have any in yet so the best I could suggest would be to ring around a couple O.
Yup, the bit of the article that talks about a dip in quality specifically mentions it is when the battery runs out and there is no amplification or NC
I find it hard to disagree with the review - I need to use the telephone more in tricky conditions but everything else mentioned tallies with my experience so far - very pleased with mine despite not having directly compared them to others
I conducted a short wireless call today with my wife who was using a car kit. I asked her later on what she thought of the audio quality and apparently she couldn't tell any difference between my use of the headphone and a normal call. Only a single test but early indications are positive
If I already owned the QC35 I don't think I'd even consider changing unless you could off load the Bose for close to purchase. The Sony have some extra features but if there is a big £/$ difference to change and comfort is paramount I doubt the upgrade (if there is one) would be worth it. Regards the pleather ear pads - the Sony are very nice but I'd be surprised if, over time, they didn't go the same way as every pleather pad I've ever seen. Not sure if they are...
