I tried these headphones and the Bose QC35II and I have to say Microsoft did an incredible job. The dials are awesome, they’re comfortable. I like the fact when you turn them on it tells you how many hours left in the battery.

Review: Jack Sparrow

I’ve had these for about a week now, and I gotta say I’m totally in love. I’m amazed by the noise cancellation because I bought them despite everyone telling me they weren’t going to work for the purpose I was buying them for–i.e. my loud, noisy upstairs neighbors with their toddler who literally does laps for hours on the hardwood floors.

Although it doesn’t take away 100% of their noise, I would say there’s a good 80% reduction such that I definitely don’t have to blast my music in order to sleep (my ear drums are very thankful), and after so long I can actually have the audacity to sleep-in on the weekends.

Review: Donald Armstead

So these are pretty big step up for me. I generally buy headphones in the $100 range and I can definitely tell the difference in overall build quality as well as sound. I somewhat like the twist to turn on feature but I worry it won’t last as some reviewers have said. The touch controls work great for volume and skip but not so well for play/pause. The over-ear fit and comfort are fantastic for me. I have pretty big ears and have no issues.

Review: Scott Kaiser

I was skeptical about the PX because I read great reviews everywhere but Amazon. I’ve owned the P5 and P7 as well as the B&O H8 and H9 as well as some Bose cans.

When I first received these they sounded very plain with the bass being extremely pale, however, the sound stage was phenomenal. I was ready to return these but kept forgetting to bring the box to the post office for about a week and boy I’m glad I didn’t.

Review: Jeff

Consider this a 4.5 star review. These are some pretty excellent headphones for the price, and I was pleasantly surprised when I received mine – they’re a bit better than I expected in almost every way. They do have a couple of minor flaws – one of which seems not so minor to some people – and the sound quality isn’t *quite* as good as the best headphones on the market. That said, the best headphones can run hundreds of dollars, and these are less than a single Franklin.

Review: LuckyDirt

In my opinion, these are the best value for money in NC Bluetooth. Good sound, good features, and very comfortable. The NC isn’t groundbreaking, but it’s not ear fatigue inducing either. The app gives you some cool features. The carrying case is well made. Plus, they’re not as expensive as the comparable models I tried. Only con I can see is the color is much bluer than the photos (closer to a sky blue than grey). Guess I’ll be keeping these. Highly recommended.


7. Bose QuietComfort 25 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones for Apple devices

QuietComfort 25 headphones are engineered to sound better, be more comfortable and easier to take with you. Put them on, and suddenly everything changes.

No matter how noisy the world is, it’s just you and your music—or simply peace and quiet.

Review: Nicole Mitchell

When I received the product it was amazing, sounded just as I expected. Within a couple months the left side of the headphones started giving trouble and eventually stopped working. When I contacted Bose they sent me a replacement but within a month the same problem occurred. When I contacted them and informed them about the issue they said that there was nothing they could do. I am very disappointed by the quality assurance and their customer service. I will not recommend anyone buy this product or any of their others.

I have a long commute to and from work every day via car, train, bus, and walking. I was looking for a set of headphones that would allow me to focus more on the music and podcast I’d be listening to while also saving my ears from being thrashed by being forced to max out the volume on my phone to get sufficient sound.

Review: Allen

These sound great noise cancelling now better than bose. The sound out of these headphones blows bose out of the water also. Good app for the headphones. You have to have them adjusted just right to be comfortable for long periods but once you find that sweet spot can wear for hours and hours and the sound is awesome out of the headphones. Hard to find replacement pads though.

Review: Edward A Creskoff

The AKG N700NC may be used wireless via Bluetooth or with a line. The provided line has a mic and may be used with a smartphone headphone jack. The package also comes with a USB to micro-USB charging cable, an aeroplane headphone jack adapter, and a travel case. There is an app that may be downloaded to Apple and Android devices. The app is helpful as it provides dynamic assignment of a function button on the headphone, permits EQ customization, and toggles on/off an auto-off feature.

Review: Daniel S

As someone who owns Bose noise cancelling headphones, these new headphones have blown me away. The noise cancelling is a noticeable step up from the QC 35 I currently. It’s light (a tad heavier than the Bose), comfortable (I usually can’t stand having most headphones on for a long time as my ears tend to get sore – no issues 3 hours in with this pair), and have a sound quality that blows the Bose or any other noise cancelling headphones I’ve tried out of the water. Being able to cup the right headphone to pause the noise cancelling to listen to people talking to you without taking off the headphone is a pretty cool feature.
