About the Product
Sony’s WH-1000XM2 premium noise-canceling headphones let you completely immerse yourself in your music anytime, anywhere. Bluetooth and NFC technology offer wireless freedom, while industry-leading noise cancellation blocks out background noise. We enhance your listening experience even further by adjusting the sound for atmospheric pressure and small but significant factors like your face shape, hairstyle and glasses.
These headphones are the product of more than 40 years of noise cancelling obsession. So how did Bose make its best even better? Now, you can adjust the level of noise cancellation on the QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II. Block out the world around you. Or let in some of your surroundings. You decide.

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.
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 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
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.
