I wish my headphones didn't have a base station that had to be plugged into the wall and my phone :( they sound great but are the opposite of noise cancelling meaning no t even noise blocking

I love Apple products however I can't argue about Beats quality. They could do sooooo much better. They just look and sound nice (not as shitty as they before) and that's just it.

Apple bought Beats so why in gods name are they complete shit? My Razer Kracken headset works and sounds better than Beats for 1/3 of the cost . There are so many options that are better than most but they are right Sony and Bose are the best high end with Sennheiser being 3rd and somewhere between 3 and 10th is Jbl .

Personally, I've never found headphones that are as comfortable as Bose. I've tried those Sony at best buy and they were close to Bose in comfort, but the foam felt a bit harsher and they didn't seem to fit around my ears as nicely as either the QC35 or even my old AE2Ws. Also, the plastic creaked a lot and I could hear it. The cheap creaking is, in my opinion, an unforgivable sin in a $300+ pair of headphones.

I'm a music producer and use Audio Technica M50X. I've used my friends Beats when I was showing him some tricks to working in a Digital Audio Workstation and I asked how much he paid for them. The low end frequencies are bad, and there is too much colorization on the high end Hz range which causes a slight audio hiss. In other words, they are expensive and when it comes to music are pretty bad. Music isn't supposed to sound like they do on Beats, it is literally altering the original song to a point where it sounds wrong, at least to a trained audio/music engineer. Just, no.

I would like to understand more about Beats having this bad reputation. I particularly don't like Beats because they are expensive and aren't that durable to everyday use. My favorite brand of headphone are JBL and Bose, but I have had a Marshall headphone that where great!!!! My doubt is about that bad reputation about beats having a bad sound quality, is that for real? I see a lot of DJ's using Beats phones...

Just to add to their review. I have TMJ disorder and I bought 2 sony´s, one for my wife and one for me. After using mine for about a month (with long periods of use) my TMJ started complaining. So I changed mine for bose´s and my TMJ is happier now. By the way... I love both of them, but my TMJ chose bose for me.

Beats were popular because of dumb consumers who believed in Dre. I've tried on Beats before in the beginnig at Best Buy, and found them to be pure crap. The Internet did a tear down on one of Dre's Beat headphone, and they revealed that Beats were just pure crap quality compared to Sony and Bose. Dre Beats crap quality material should be selling those for about $40. The marketing and leveraging Dre's fame helpt put that $40 crap headphone in the $350 range. I've tried Bose and Sony and they are comparably good and waaaaaaaaay better quality than Dre's Beats. People who buy Beats are just Dumb Suckers. Period. For the same kind of quality in Dre's Beats, you could buy a Generic Chinese branded headphone for about $80 - $100 which is worth the price. Beat are overpriced lemon. You got suckered and you got burned for overpaying those crap headphones. If you want REAL quality, Bose and Sony are your best ones.

Noise cancelling wise Sony and Bose are both great. I have both of the headphones. But if you are on an airplane and start eating, you might find Bose a better pair of headphones when chewing, at least to me. Bose headphones stick to ears better when eating. Also, if you wear both headphones for around 14-15 hours of flight, you might find Bose better because Sony headphones make your ears uncomfortable and a bit aching. Just personal tests. And with current pricing, Bose is now usually around 300, and Sony does not cut a cent. So Bose will be the choice for now.

1.7K Apple users are bitter about this video, the Microsoft users probably are long past caring - Sony and Bose, well I feel Bose wins in audio detail, comfort and noise cancelling, I also like the physical buttons. Sony though has more bass and a high level of tech especially in the supporting app. If you are a technologist go for the sony, a musical aficionado go for the Bose. For me the Bose still has it where it counts and just shades top prize.
