    This keeps me awake at night - why?

    With the 700s the ANC mic seems to be under the plate but what the hack is going on here? I have never seen anything like that, how is that possible and why are they doing that? looks crazy. There must be a good reason behind this. these are the quiet comfort 25 I think:

    Bose Sport Earbuds

    I've been using for the last four years the Soundsport Wireless, and then the Soundsport Frees; the first earned my loyalty thanks to their durability and fairly neutral, open sound signature with a really good handle of timbre -- the latter reinforced it thanks to their even cleaner...

    QC 35 - Low volume

    I recently sold my Sony 1000 M3s as whilst they sounded good (after some EQ tweaks) and had excellent Noise Cancelling, I found them uncomfortable and more specifically they cooked my ears. The QC35s *mk iis) are so comfortable, the sound out of the box is pretty decent but my one bug-bear is...

    I'd rather have the Bose Soundsport over the Westone wireless...

    Before you light those torches and sharpen those pitchforks, hear me out. I have the W40. The sound on these are AMAZING. At least when I used the cable. But I kept getting tired of apple's lightning-to-3.5mm adapter failing for whatever reason (went through a few of them. Thankfully, Apple's...

    Bose QuietComfort 35 II still a good choice?

    Hello all, I'm a long time Bose QuietComfort 15 user and was wondering if it's still a good choice to upgrade to the 35 II? Where I live it's currently on sale (€299 vs €379) and it's tempting to buy it. I've been following the noise cancellation headphones space sporadically but I understand...

    Hi! So are the Bose QuietComfort 35 headphones isolated well? I mean if I listen to music in really high volumes(like max level or close to max) will the people standing close to me be able to hear the music? I mean like if someone is right next to me will they be able to hear it and how much...

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    Hi all, Haven't posted much as I've been pretty happy with the Senn IE80s over the last couple of years. But I'm getting a bit fed up with having to replace the cable every 8-12 months. The IE80s are fantastic sound-wise, and I have custom-moulded sleeves which give a wonderful fit and great...

    Bose QC35 vs Beyer DT 770 Pro 32 ohms

    Hey folks.   I got a DT 770 Pro 32 ohms here with me for over an year but wanted to go wireless. It seems these Bose headphones are the most recommended ever.   Comfort wise, I'd imagine a tie. DT 770 are super comfy but one of Bose's main selling points seems to be that as well.   What...
