So I got the much hyped, brand new Bose QuietComfort 20i’s. Does a fair job cutting out external noises, but comes at the cost of sound quality. Basically – doesn’t sound as good as even my $30 SoundMagic e10’s.
(BTW, it sounds even worse when not using the noise-cancelling feature)
For $300 I was expecting a little more in terms of SQ. Not to mention they give me a weird feeling in my ears. Pressure from the noise-canceling device???
So for the money I was thinking about returning these and getting a nice, noise-isolating pair instead.
Sennheiser Momentums looks mighty appealing.
Klipsch Image x7i’s also look pretty groovy. (Ceramic too!)
Of course, one has to face the fact of external noises coming in.
So my question is for the Momentum and Klipsch owners: Are these phones pretty decent at keeping outside noises at bay???
