First let me say, I really would appreciate it if everyone would refrain from any unnecessary Bose bashing. If you haven't THOROUGHLY listened to the QC15s and atleast one of the other candidates, please keep your opinions to yourself. I'm looking for experienced, constructive opinions only.
Ok, I have owned the Blue Limited Edition QC15s for a few months now. In summary, I love them! They are extremely comfortable, portable, have amazing noise canceling, a deep soundstage, and sound really good for my uses; they just sound natural to my ears. I listen to mostly music with acoustical instruments (Gospel, Jazz, Funk, etc.) because I'm a drummer. I'll occasionally listen to some hiphop and r&b. I also do a great deal of immersive gaming (Shooters and Sports games). The QC15s are suprisingly really good with games.
So you may be wondering if you like them so much, why are you considering switching? In short, curiosity. Since I purchased these, all 3 of these headphones have been released. Unfortunately where I live there is no way to demo the others. So this is where you all come in.
How do these new headphones stack up against the QC15s? Please keep in mind my uses. Also, ANC is not a necessity for me. I honestly just look at it as a bonus if I'm ever in a noisy environment. It does add to immersive gaming though.
