The headphones sit on the ear in the region around the ear, on the skull, while the headphones rest on the cartilage of the ear. I find the noise cancelling headphones on ear much more comfortable for a long time because there is much less pressure on the ear.
Sony MDRZX110NC Noise Cancelling Headphones – The sleeves land on the earlobe and do not cover the entire lobe, but it is still a very good “seal”. However, it can burn a single AAA battery after proper use. I would recommend buying a spare battery pack (or rechargeable batteries). Maybe it’s in my unusually noisy environment, but I wish I had more range.
Bose Noise Cancelling Wireless Bluetooth Headphones 700 – Very well designed. It looks like a stainless steel blade and feels very solid. Without visible screws, without joints, very smooth.
• There is a soft-touch plastic on the device. It is a nice feeling and I have to believe they were like this to reduce weight.
• Setting up the speakers is easy. Just slide the headphones up or down as you like.
• The touch panel on the speaker is very fast. It wasn’t long before I knew how to use it, as Bose offers a simple design for using touch functions.
• The highlight of these headphones is the voice system. There are 8 individual microphones in this device. 6 are for noise cancellation and the last two are for your voice. I sat in my busy office (open floor plan) and started talking on the phone. This feature is excellent. Noise suppression blocks 80-90% of my surroundings, while everyone I talk to with these headphones had no idea that I was in the middle of my office during rush hour.
Boltune Bluetooth 5.0 Over Ear Wireless Headphones – Sound quality: great overall sound with great bass. I’m not an audiophile either, but I’m happy with the sound.
Comfort: It fits you well at first, but if you did it right, it’s really comfortable. The padding for the ears is excellent and prevents noise from escaping. You should see how long the filling lasts, but it appears to be a durable material.
Battery: Used for 2 days over the weekend, but did not need to be charged yet. It hasn’t been fully tested for up to 30 hours, but so far you’re satisfied with the grip of the battery. It also comes with a USB cable for charging and an audio cable.
Control: All controls around the earpiece are intuitive. Bluetooth pairing was easy to configure.
Bose QuietComfort 35 II Wireless Bluetooth Headphones – Excellent battery life: more than 20 hours with noise cancellation activated.
Great Sound: I am not an audiophile, but the sound is much better than any other earphone I have. It is on a level similar to an old pair of Sennheiser Momentum.
Excellent ANC: Airplanes and air conditioning (in the office) are considerably reduced. Only when you take them off will you notice how noisy the environment was.
Excellent Workmanship – Especially when touched, there’s a first-class feel that shows when you hold it the first time.
Exceptional comfort: I used it with great comfort on flights of more than 12 hours. I also have the Jabra Revo II and I cannot last more than 2 hours.
Beats Solo Pro Wireless Noise Cancelling On-Ear Headphones – Very soft pads. The band is not as tight as I expected: I think the shape and size of my head are very normal (for a man), mostly square, not wide. I think you could easily use this for a long time. ANC is on par with Bose QC35ii. It’s not as good as Sony XM3, but that’s why you don’t really buy these headphones. This is about headphones, not headphones. The ANC should be more than enough to drown out sounds in the gym.
Sony Noise Cancelling Headphones WHCH700N – Yes, it is made of plastic, but it looks very sexy. I have ordered a blue color. It is different from my Beyerdyamics, Pioneers and Sony MDR-1ADAC. The sound impressed me very, very clean, crisp and with good bass. However, the noise reduction function is not active … I have read many complaints here about the noise reduction function of this model. Let’s say it is moderate, in the 10-point system it makes 6 points, in the 5-point system it could make 3. The truth is that it mainly blocks background sounds such as groove or other sounds. But you will definitely hear the voices of children, people speak, etc. I can see that Sony is not using the best NC technology they have here, and that is logical.
COWIN E7 Active Noise Cancelling Headphones – Noise cancellation is pretty decent. It is not Bose quality, but it is strong enough to moisten a lawn mower, vacuum or grinder. Flight noise is almost completely muffled. As I mentioned before, it doesn’t take a lot of pressure to make it creak, but if it gets too annoying, I just turn off the NC. The sound quality is also quite good. Depending on the app / song I’m listening to, it can get EXTREMELY strong. So much so that I have to reject it, which says something because I listen to my music at full speed most of the time. The sound quality is slightly better when the NC is on, but slightly higher when the NC is off.
