    Active Noise Cancelling headphones

    Recently I got myself a pair of Sony MH1000XM3.
    Holy smokes! what took me so long to get one?
    Noise Cancelling headphones are the best.

    I have the mk2 version.
    Had them on today in London on trains and coaches. Fantastic things, even just turned on, noise cancelling, without anything playing through them

    Iíve had them since the mark I came out since I fly at least once a year on a 11-13 hour flight to UK from HK and back. They are brilliant.

    I also have the B&O E8 (first version) which are very good wireless earphones. Wireless is the way to go for convenience nowadays, though I love my shure se846 earphones.

    You can get a Bluetooth adapter for those Shures, just detach the cable and put the new one on

    I have it but still prefer the cable for sound quality.

    I used to use noise cancelling headphones phones but now use noise isolating earbuds when I fly because theyíre a lot easier to wear (I donít get so hot)

    I've got the Mk2 version also and I love them for all the travel that I do. I'm on at least 4 planes a month and these save me from all the noise pollution that comes with regular travel.

    The sound is great too. I would prefer them to have a bit warmer sound.

    Interesting. Iíve got the Bose 35 and was wondering if the Sony were better.

    On a plane once a week usually so mine get used a lot.

    Re: Active Noise Cancelling headphones

    I got some Bose QC20s which I use to travel and I have to say by and large they are the best noise cancelling I have tested out of others. I used to have the over the ear noise cancelling, however the comfort of the Bose for longer trips is worth it.

    I ended up returning the Bose NC 700 and picked up the Sony WH-1000XM3. They are hands down more suited to my music and listening preferences. The noise cancelling is also marginally better.

    So far I love them and these are not getting returned.

    Couple of things that I prefer:
    1. The sound is warmer and they have more bass at lower volume levels. I had to listen to the Bose at uncomfortable volume levels to get the same bass response.
    2. The EQ in the app is nice to have to tune the sound to my liking, depending on my mood and the situation. Bose doesn't have an EQ.
    3. They fit my head a little better and I found myself constant adjusting the Bose to optimize the soundstage.
    4. I really like the ability to fold these up into a smaller package to fit into my brief case. The Bose did not allow me to fold them.

    Couple of things I don't like:
    1. The touch controls aren't as good as the Bose. It's not even close. With the Sony I try to increase the volume and accidentally skip a track. The Bose were perfect.
    2. The lack of noise cancelling adjustment. The ability to turn down the NC on the Bose was a nice feature.
    3. Battery life was slightly better with my usage on the Bose. I'm nit-picking here as they are very close.
