What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Sony WH-1000XM2 Over Ear Wireless Bluetooth Headphones with Case - Gold
  • They are comfy to wear for hours, maybe 5-6, then my ears got a little sensitive.
  • Light weight and definitely more comfortable for long periods
  • They are comfortable, good weight, biuld quality
  • Comfort is great, sound is good, bulky and weight is decent.
Beats Studio 3 Wireless Headphones - Matte Black
  • Extremely comfortable. The ear pads are plush and conform around your ear. I can wear them for hours with zero fatigue.
  • Durability: Headband is metal with solid hinges. They feel sturdy.
  • The headphones (the part that you actually put over your ears) are far too small, both in circumference and depth.

What customers say about "Features"
Sony WH-1000XM2 Over Ear Wireless Bluetooth Headphones with Case - Gold
  • The ability to control the songlist by “swiping” on the earpad is phenomenal. It is SO much easier than trying to push tiny buttons on your earphones
  • The ability to quickly turn off the sound canceling by cupping your hand over the earpad is very useful.
  • They fold much much flatter than my Bose for storage and come with a nice flat zippered case.
  • The Connect App was easy to install and is actually useful, you can toggle how much noise canceling you want and how much you want to hear what is going on in your surroundings.
  • The battery does actually last about 30 hours, I set a timer every time I put them on, used the noise canceling and they lasted about 25 hours on one charge and 27 and 29 hours for the other two
  • Cannot control with the swipe when on the cord.
  • When they are charging you cannot use them.
  • They do feel hot to wear after a while. Not comfortable on hot days. Bose may be a better fit there.
  • These cans do tend to get hot and are not quite as comfortable as Bose for longer duration's
Beats Studio 3 Wireless Headphones - Matte Black
  • Battery life: Insane, lasts me for 3 days (avg listening 6-8 hours) before needing to recharge. They recharge to 100% very quickly
  • Incredible sound. The bass is punchy, filled with depth. Mids and highs sound great as well. While they don't have a truely "flat response", they sound excellent.
  • Bluetooth range: this is the crazy part, I can leave these on one end of my gym and walk about 130 feet away and get full signal even through two. walls.
  • Overall excellent sound quality. I’ve owned Bose and Panasonic noise-canceling headphones in the past, and these are definitely the best in this area.
  • Excellent battery life at approximately 22 hours, although I didn’t get to actually test this out.
  • Bass is much lower than the Bose QC
  • Sometimes my ears get hot
