What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Sony MDR-1000X Bluetooth stereo headphone - Gray beige
  • At first glance they are very sturdy and well made
  • Comfortable to wear. Nicely built.
  • Before I bought it I had seen the review saying it's too small, but actually it's pretty nice fitting my head, and there is still space to get tighter or looser! So for most of the people the size is not a problem I think.
  • It was simply too tight and I was unable to make it fit comfortably. The band extension did not allow me to lower the "cans" enough to cover my ears properly
Bose QuietComfort 35 (Series II) Wireless Headphones, Noise Cancelling - Silver
  • Incredibly lightweight and comfortable
  • They are comfortable on my head, and I wear them sometimes for 6-8 hrs.
  • They are also comfortable & light weight. I have worn them for several hours & still were comfortable.
  • They feel super light. Whether they are or not for you is relative, but compared to the MDR-1000x, they are much lighter.
  • They seem cheaper. Not that they are, they are very well built, but I think in their striving for light weight they made them feel a bit cheaper.
  • I'm not yet used to keep it on my neck - too big for me, restricts my head movements

What customers say about "Features"
Sony MDR-1000X Bluetooth stereo headphone - Gray beige
  • I was also impressed by the noise cancelling. I often sleep with my headphones on and these did a fantastic job blocking noise and letting me doze.
  • Battery Life is amazing. I've charged it only a handful of times in the last year my guess would be 30 hrs of play time
  • Noise canceling, If you want to feel isolated from the world these headphones will do it
  • Being able to turn the noise canceling off is very nice
  • Aux Cable is very nice, but if you want to use the mic while it's plugged in not going to happen it doesn't work because of the type of Aux cord that comes with the headphones doesn't support a mic.
  • I've noticed other types of headphones have a better sound than the MDR-1000X while using Bluetooth
Bose QuietComfort 35 (Series II) Wireless Headphones, Noise Cancelling - Silver
  • Announces battery strength and paired devices when you turn them on
  • Microphone works very well for calls in both my home office and a very busy client site.
  • Has automatic sleep mode, so it's convenient if I forget it on my table turned on
  • Supports two devices. Works better than expected (no other headphones worked that well for me before)
  • Noice cancellation is perfect - all outside sounds are removed, but if I someone would talk loudly near by, I could hear it quietly.
  • Sound quality may not be up to far for some audiophiles (some reviewers have noted that Sony has better sound quality)
  • App does not remember what noice cancellation level I had set before (wanted to use it in a Low mode during 1st days, but now I got used to High mode).
  • Some small issues with switching between two devices. Got confused couple of times which device is being connected to, but overall it supports two devices best as from my experience with other devices.
