abunda_amazon_reviews I was looking for wireless headphones for my work and seriously considered Sony 1000X vs. Bose QC 35. While I was watching so many reviews, I found Sony just updated the 1000X, so I jumped into WH 1000XM2! I tried on both 1000XM2 and Bose QC 35 and honestly think that both are great headphones. Sony 1000XM2 has more features and longer battery life so I am very content with my purchase. #Features The touchpad is not a new feature but it is worth mentioning since Bose does not have this feature. Swipe up or down to control the volume. Swipe right or left to change the music. It is very intuitive and easy. You can even press long to activate Siri. Double tap to stop music or take a phone call. Also, you can cup the right ear and disable the noise canceling and listen to others. You can check the battery level by the home screen of a smartphone. I have only seen even numbers such as 100%, 70%, and 50% (then I would charge so I have not seen low numbers because of the reason). Maybe the headphone cannot tell the battery level precisely. #Bluetooth connection Bluetooth connection is great. I can leave my phone and go to next room without breaking the connection. Switching the devices is not easy though. With Bose, you can connect two devices at the same time. However, with 1000XM2, you need to disconnect one device to use other device. To switch the device (updated) 1. Go to setting. Bluetooth, then disconnect WH-1000XM2. 2. Go to the other device, hit setting, Bluetooth, then click to connect. If you don't want to touch the device connected currently but wans to switch the device (for example, 1000XM2 is connected to iPad that is in your bag and you don't want to pull it out), you can 1. Turn off the 1000XM2 2. Turn on and keep pressing power button to activate bluetooth pairing. 3. Go to your device you want to connect. Hit setting, bluetooth, then connect to 1000XM2. Honestly, I don't mind doing this but I wish we could connect two iOS devices at the same time. #Noise canceling Sony and Bose are both excellent noise cancelling (NC) headphones. While QC35 cannot turn off the NC, 1000XM2 can turn of NC. Previous 1000X had a problem with phone call where you cannot hear yourself (so you end up shouting). Sony has fixed this problem and now 1000XM2 let you hear your voice easily with voice focus mode. Making phone call is much easier now. #Sony headphone connect app This app allows you to change the setting of NC based on your activity. You can pre-set the level of NC + voice focus according to your activity (rest, walking, running, and transportation). For frequent fliers, it can adjust the pressure too. You can also change where the sound comes from. For example, you can set as if the sound comes from your back. When I was using 1000XM2 in the office, I used voice focus mode. It was very interesting experience because I did not hear any noise from construction etc but I heard my coworkers voice. Voice is picked up from the mic so it is an interesting experience. #Gorgeous look It honestly looks fantastic. I usually pick the black color but I tried gold at this time. The case of headphone had two-tone color (gold in the middle). It looks great. Please look at attached pictures as it tells you more how nice it looks. The headphone has hinges so you can actually make it very small and put it into the case. #Sound I cannot speak too much about the sound because I am not a professional musician. However, in my opinion, it sounds absolutely nice. It sounds even better than Bose QC35 but it is just my opinion. With the connect app, you can also change the sound effect such as Arena, Club, Outdoor Stage, and Concert Hall. It is subjective so you might want to try it before you buy, but I am very much satisfied. #Comfort This is where BOSE QC35 (quiet comfort) comes into play. WH 1000XM2 is comfortable but I feel my ears are hot after using this for 1 hour. The pad is touching my ears with 1000XM2 whereas QC35 has deeper ear pad. QC35 is much more comfortable for me. #Sturdy design I know cracking was the problem with 1000X. So far, it has been OK but I will definitely give updates after using several months (hope nothing will happen). It looks very sturdy and does not make the clicking sound when I open the headphone. So which one you should buy? I am very happy with 1000XM2 because it has many features and long battery life (30 hours!). However, you may want to try it on before you buy because BOSE is more comfortable.;;Reviewed in the United States on September 18, 2017;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;The best wireless headphone in 2017;;Tet;;;These sound great noise cancelling now better than bose.

There was no damage, no mistreatment, no stress, they worked fine just the headband is broken. These aren’t my first headphones with Sony, I had a pair of earbuds that lasted almost 15 years. The only reason I don’t still use them is because I ran over those in my office chair. I was split between these and Bose, I researched for weeks and thought I already have Sony where can I go wrong. Apparently this has been going on for a while with the headband according to the reviews so I purchased the SquareTrade warranty as back up. Nope, was told the same thing they do not cover accidental damage and sent me to the link to cancel the warranty. Even though I explained, they are defective. I’m not asking for a brand new pair just that these be repaired. Hopefully I can superglue them together, if all else fails duck tape. Sony will not be getting anymore of my money. Stay far, far, far away from these headphones.

The best wireless headphone in 2017
I was looking for wireless headphones for my work and seriously considered Sony 1000X vs. Bose QC 35. While I was watching so many reviews, I found Sony just updated the 1000X, so I jumped into WH 1000XM2! I tried on both 1000XM2 and Bose QC 35 and honestly think that both are great headphones. Sony 1000XM2 has more features and longer battery life so I am very content with my purchase. #Features The touchpad is not a new feature but it is worth mentioning since Bose does not have this feature. Swipe up or down to control the volume. Swipe right or left to change the music. It is very intuitive and easy. You can even press long to activate Siri. Double tap to stop music or take a phone call. Also, you can cup the right ear and disable the noise canceling and listen to others. You can check the battery level by the home screen of a smartphone. I have only seen even numbers such as 100%, 70%, and 50% (then I would charge so I have not seen low numbers because of the reason). Maybe the headphone cannot tell the battery level precisely. #Bluetooth connection Bluetooth connection is great. I can leave my phone and go to next room without breaking the connection. Switching the devices is not easy though. With Bose, you can connect two devices at the same time. However, with 1000XM2, you need to disconnect one device to use other device. To switch the device (updated) 1. Go to setting. Bluetooth, then disconnect WH-1000XM2. 2. Go to the other device, hit setting, Bluetooth, then click to connect. If you don't want to touch the device connected currently but wans to switch the device (for example, 1000XM2 is connected to iPad that is in your bag and you don't want to pull it out), you can 1. Turn off the 1000XM2 2. Turn on and keep pressing power button to activate bluetooth pairing. 3. Go to your device you want to connect. Hit setting, bluetooth, then connect to 1000XM2. Honestly, I don't mind doing this but I wish we could connect two iOS devices at the same time. #Noise canceling Sony and Bose are both excellent noise cancelling (NC) headphones. While QC35 cannot turn off the NC, 1000XM2 can turn of NC. Previous 1000X had a problem with phone call where you cannot hear yourself (so you end up shouting). Sony has fixed this problem and now 1000XM2 let you hear your voice easily with voice focus mode. Making phone call is much easier now. #Sony headphone connect app This app allows you to change the setting of NC based on your activity. You can pre-set the level of NC + voice focus according to your activity (rest, walking, running, and transportation). For frequent fliers, it can adjust the pressure too. You can also change where the sound comes from. For example, you can set as if the sound comes from your back. When I was using 1000XM2 in the office, I used voice focus mode. It was very interesting experience because I did not hear any noise from construction etc but I heard my coworkers voice. Voice is picked up from the mic so it is an interesting experience. #Gorgeous look It honestly looks fantastic. I usually pick the black color but I tried gold at this time. The case of headphone had two-tone color (gold in the middle). It looks great. Please look at attached pictures as it tells you more how nice it looks. The headphone has hinges so you can actually make it very small and put it into the case. #Sound I cannot speak too much about the sound because I am not a professional musician. However, in my opinion, it sounds absolutely nice. It sounds even better than Bose QC35 but it is just my opinion. With the connect app, you can also change the sound effect such as Arena, Club, Outdoor Stage, and Concert Hall. It is subjective so you might want to try it before you buy, but I am very much satisfied. #Comfort This is where BOSE QC35 (quiet comfort) comes into play. WH 1000XM2 is comfortable but I feel my ears are hot after using this for 1 hour. The pad is touching my ears with 1000XM2 whereas QC35 has deeper ear pad. QC35 is much more comfortable for me. #Sturdy design I know cracking was the problem with 1000X. So far, it has been OK but I will definitely give updates after using several months (hope nothing will happen). It looks very sturdy and does not make the clicking sound when I open the headphone. So which one you should buy? I am very happy with 1000XM2 because it has many features and long battery life (30 hours!). However, you may want to try it on before you buy because BOSE is more comfortable.

These sound great noise cancelling now better than bose
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. 1/18/2018 I just want to add something for amazon it would be alot better to see reviews from people that pay not a bunch of reviews from people that receive the product for free. I have been noticing alot more vine reviews and they are always high because duh they are receiving a free product this is a shady practice in my opinion. I want a real review of someone that is willing to come off 400.00 of their hard earned money then give a review.

the sound and noise cancelling is very good. Broken headband from regular use (CHEAP PLASTIC)
I have to say the sound and noise cancelling of this is pretty awesome. Unfortunatley that's moot because after a month and a half of regular use the side of the headband cracked. Rendering it useless. Looked online and saw there are MANY people with the same problem and concerns. Someone from Sony even left a comment under a review on Amazon saying the issue has been looked at and "measures had been taken". Contacted Sony about a repair / replace and was told that wouldn't happen. Even though it's their defective product. They are the ones who chose to use cheap plastic on 400 dollar headphones, I'm the one paying for it. I'm never buying Sony again.

Bad
Just a great pair of headphones with a superb sound quality. Well done Sony. Update: well yes great sound quality, but after 5 months, same problem as previous model, mine got broken as usual at the headband.According to Sony, this is "physical damage".. Now I took good care of them and put them always in the original case... Omg Sony... What a disaster. Exactly today I was considering to pre-order the new camera Sony A73.... Well I might think twice after this treatment.

Amazon I recommend you removed these from the site!
Purchased these $300 headphones in November 2017, it’s currently July 2018 and the headband is broken! I contacted Sony and was told they don’t cover accidental damage. Explained I unfolded the headphones from the case and went to place them on my head when the snap that holds the midsection of the cushion fell off. There was no damage, no mistreatment, no stress, they worked fine just the headband is broken. These aren’t my first headphones with Sony, I had a pair of earbuds that lasted almost 15 years. The only reason I don’t still use them is because I ran over those in my office chair. I was split between these and Bose, I researched for weeks and thought I already have Sony where can I go wrong. Apparently this has been going on for a while with the headband according to the reviews so I purchased the SquareTrade warranty as back up. Nope, was told the same thing they do not cover accidental damage and sent me to the link to cancel the warranty. Even though I explained, they are defective. I’m not asking for a brand new pair just that these be repaired. Hopefully I can superglue them together, if all else fails duck tape. Sony will not be getting anymore of my money. Stay far, far, far away from these headphones. I’ll have to save up for the Bose.

Amazing, but...
Easily the best sounding bluetooth wireless in the price range. However, they just aren't as comfortable as Bose QuietComfort which is a huge bummer. My ears fatigue from the pressure and if headphones aren't comfortable, you don't wear them. It won't matter if they sound better than other headphones. I can wear my Bose all day. I can wear my Sony's for about two to three hours before my ears tire from the pressure and uncomfortable ear pads. You will have to decide what's more important to you: comfort or best sound.
