Daaaaaaaaaaaamn. You gots yourself way too much money to burn.

It's better spent on cans and personal audio than drink & drugs - you have something to show for your monies rather than a pickled liver and a bad habit to feed wink.gif

Too right, my friend.

 

At least I can play with my headphones the next day after buying them :D

I like the Zik a lot for what it is. I'd have a pair myself if they weren't so big. The sound is about on par or a little better than the QC15, but they have a lot of cool tech added in for not much more.

First time I experienced the n/c on the Bose Quietcomfort 15's was in an Apple store with a display set for people to try for themselves - they had the n/c function already turned on and I'd read reviews prior, all raving about how amazing these cans n/c function was which recommended trying them for the n/c by itself, without any music, to get the full effect, and wow, they weren't kidding - as soon as you put these cans on your head, it's like the world goes into mute.

I stood for about 10 mins in the store just putting them on and taking them off to marvel at the immense contrast of the noise from the store being muted then back to normal when taking them off again, and if you leave them on for a couple of mins then take them off, you realise just how noisy the white noise of a busy store in a mall actually is, it sounded deafeningly loud such was the contrast.

I'd recommend anyone to check these cans out as I did if you have an Apple or any other store that has a demo set out to try for yourself, and I guarantee you will be impressed if not amazed.

The n/c on beats cans is non existent in comparison - the Bose QC15 really do give you the true sense of muting the world around you at the slide of a switch cool.gif

Respect to Bose technicians for producing such awesome n/c, they must be wizards or something biggrin.gif

Bose engineers are effing incredible at what they do. The speakers themselves are... not bad. But IMO people buy them for travel and are probably looking less for "critical listening" than they are "peaceful listening". In light of that, you aren't gonna top QC, and I too have stood there like an idiot putting them on and taking them off in amazement.

Yea, I've always been impressed, they even have nc in-ears, but I didn't like em since they barely isolated and the nc brought them up to what good isolation is.

One fantastic product from Bose is the SoundLink Mini:

 

 

Bluetooth speaker, seven hours battery life, yada yada yada.

 

Importantly, you wouldn't believe the sound from this thing..

 

I've never really liked Bose, but was blown away by it.

Audio Technica ANC9s do an excellent job of noise cancellation with 3 settings.  They sound better than the Bose QCs and are much better made.  Also you can still listen to music if the battery dies.

I've never heard this speaker before, but thanks for he recommend, I'll certainly keep an eye out for any store with a demo model to check out smily_headphones1.gif

By the pic it looks pretty conveniently compact with small footprint.

Ya. It's all aluminium, too.

Beats are okay, but highly overrated. And cheaply made for the most part.

Beats are okay, but highly over criticised. And pretty well made for the most part. Particularly the beats pro and mixr models which could possibly survive a zombie apocalypse ...wink.gif



Mike unboxes the new black colour pro's - infinite black is the new black & Mike summarises this unboxing for me with one word - "wow" biggrin.gif
Though I still prefer my original Monster Beats Detox, I've had for years now, sourced from an authorised beats retailer to ensure no fake bakes cool.gif
Beats should definitely release the pro's in the same kingfisher blue they do with the beats 2.0 studio's aka Eminem Studio's.

Abit less bass, but very great Improvements on clarity. You guys should check it out tongue.gif

I can't be the first one to ask this, but why are there TWO beats-bashing threads going on at the same time? Isn't one redundant enough?

 

I think the two threads should be consolidated.
