Sums it up pretty well. I have to say I like them both and it's nice to be able to choose in the mornings :)
Dovice, 27 Nov 2016Thanks for review Roy, I was hoping someone would post a comparison between the Sony and Bose.... moreYou are welcome Dovice!
I live in New York and my office is at times square. You can imagine the droning noise. I completely agree with your feedback about NC headphones.
As you mentioned, I felt the same regarding the built quality. I found Sony is better. For example, all the screws are exposed on Bose but you can only see the hinges on Sony. Also the headband is metal unlike bose. The earcups are covered with leather but the qc35 is aluminum built.
I would suggest you to try both at least for couple days and then make the decision.
Anonymous, 27 Nov 2016Bluetooth = Brain tumor do your research in internet.Phones have radio line (4G/3G/2G), Bluetooth, NFC and Wi-Fi, that's a lot more than just Bluetooth, man.
Claudiu.Lucian, 27 Nov 2016if Sony is overpriced, then Apple is what? the God of overpriced?!Sony mobiles are overpriced like apple and you know that. At least apple has a unique o.s., not bloody android like sony. All sony products were very expansive and overpriced
Roy, 27 Nov 2016I tried QC35 and MDR 1000x both before making the decision. Sound quality sony is way better. ... moreThanks for review Roy, I was hoping someone would post a comparison between the Sony and Bose. I have owned two pairs of Bose QC15s (classic, still good today really), and loved them SO much, but sold them after we moved from our noisy office.
I like the ability to control playback and volume easily from the Sony and assume the build quality is slightly better? The Bose were a bit plasticy. I do plan to try both in John Lewis (UK) anyway to make a final call. I always get more work done when I have noise cancelling headphones on, the brain likes serenity! :)
To anyone reading this who has never experience noise cancellation, it is THE best investment you will ever make if you need silence as part of your work, or like a good nap when you travel. You'll be three times as productive and they will pay for themselves! Never mind the other benefits such as being able to sleep in aircraft, trains etc. (Be warned, don't miss your station when the announcement comes on! I did once and ended up in Staines at midnight instead of Reading! Funny, init!

If u observe, almost everything about Sony including PlayStation home screen, PlayStation adverts and virtually every Sony product and packaging has blue colour on then. There's no problem or issue with all xperia screen, its simply a conscious decision by there engineers and personally I love the blue stint rather than warm colours/picture. This is what true fan means.

I'll have to save towards getting these. they look great and are future proof.
400 $ for the muddy, bloated and quiet sound of Sony ?? Oh no !!! Beats Studio 2 Wireless forever !!!
xeroxxxxxxxxx, 27 Nov 2016"with phone start to ditching audio jack"
what ? name me 10 phone ditching audio jackI don't think its a mass movement for now, but if the obsession with thinness continues, we will start seeing it from other manufacturers. For now, the Oppo R5, Moto Z, HTC Bolt all have no headphone jacks.
Also, being a thinness issue, it may be the feature flagship Android phones will tout.
Aa, 27 Nov 2016Goes better with Sony XZ... LDAC. Forget IPhone. Sony Xperia XZ is truly great phone, but I can't understand why they prefere blue white balance at screen and camera, normal white balance or a bit warm looks a lot better and lively.
xeroxxxxxxxxx, 27 Nov 2016"with phone start to ditching audio jack" what ? name me 10 phone ditching audio jackApple has ditched 3.5mm jack+Apple has 30% of the Market=wireless is the future
This headphone is excellent. Unfortunately it isn't as comfortable as the Bose QC35 to wear for long periods

AJ_74, 27 Nov 2016Here's the part of the review I found the most informative:
"And I can say from experience,... moreYou even quoted the part "based on experience.."
Did you ever stop to think, that means the reviewer has a black iPhone? So it means that he likes how the headphones goes with HIS iPhone.
