        I'm surprised you never mention the Sennheiser Momentum Wireless, although they are at version 3.0 and in the same price range. Did you try them, do you plan on reviewing them?

            I’m wanting to buy a great pair of noise canceling headphones. I’ve ruled out the Sony’s cause they’re uncomfortable and I want headphones that connect to more than one device. So should I get the 700s or the QC35IIs? The music app has been updated many times since launch 4 months ago, but I’m still not 100% sure.

                Video flow sequence of priority

                1) Audio quality = music + phone conversation
                2) comfort level. Nos of hours
                3) connectivity issues
                4) everything else

                That's the way I like it.
                Cos if a device fails 1 to 3 then 4th onwards is un necessary. Unfortunately most ppl start at level 4.

                    Bose 700: The King is Back! Whole video talks about how great they are...

                    Then says he STILL likes the sony's better, but is glad some competition showed up!

                    Also most tech reviewers say Sony STILL has better ANC.

                        I'm not an audio engineer, just a simple musician that records a couple of things quite frequent (to validate if a song is OK, my personal progress on an instrument and so on). I need headphones that ARE flat-sounding because I want to know how my kick drum sounds and any boosting will provide me misleading image of my sound. Flat sound - one of key selling points for me.

                                                      I've owned the Sony XM3's for almost a year and did my own Bose 700 comparison with a friend. No thanks! I'll stick with my Sony!! Hands down better and better app to alter your EQ based on the music you play. Bose doesn't want you messing with "their" sound signature, F that! Bose are not worth the coin they are asking for after they copied Sony's touch technology! To each their own but I love my Sony XM3's!!!

They want to extend this from 10 minutes to 1 hour, which is still unsatisfactory, and which they still have not done yet anyways. This is Terrible

I mean it sort of can if (they are BOTH android and 1 device, like phone, turns off sound) BUT at least the older bose can connect to 2 devices AT ONCE AND if the audio turns off on one and on on the other IT WILL FLAWLESSLY SWITCH!!! This is something the sony STILL CANNOT DO WTF!

                                                                                          The wh 400s 1000xm3 wtf are THOSE names??? They are fucking rubbish!!
                                                                                          Secondly! Those earphones look MEGA sexy!! They are so much more beautiful than any other earphones on the market (mostly) and FAR SURPASS Sony's, bose and even JBL or Beats!
                                                                                          I would sooo buy them!! The only reason i won't is because they don't have enough of a warm bass boosted sound to them!! That's a major let down for me and just kill it.
                                                                                          I thought bose is supposed to create more of a base with their music?? That's bloody rubbish!
                                                                                          And also I'm not keen on their app for their control. It's very lack luster!

                                                                                          Otherwise they are a beautiful, innovative and ground pushing headphones!!

                                                                                            I'm actually kinda disappointed in this review Marques, these headphones have a serious flaw. They have a motionless auto off "feature". If you fall asleep on a plane and arent moving, after 10 mins the headphones will turn off. There is no way to turn this feature off and despite customers complaining for months on end Bose apparently has done nothing to fix it, hinting that this is a hardware issue. If they could just update the firmware they would of done it months ago but because Bose has been silent everybody is thinking that the engineers hardwired it to turn off without motion. In summary they cant be used while sleeping or on long plane rides. Pretty big con never mentioned.
