What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Sennheiser PXC 550 Wireless NoiseGard Adaptive Noise Cancelling, Bluetooth Headphone with Touch Sensitive Control
  • Exceptionally soft ear pads and very, very, very light weight. Deceptively light for the size.
  • Noise cancellation is great, functions are great, and they are ridiculously lightweight. Very comfortable too!
  • They are lightweight and the design is also fantastic.
  • Overall the best headphones I've found. Lightweight, and Iove the adjustable band.
  • They are comfortable to wear, and relatively light weight. I highly recommend these if sound quality is important to you.
Sony WH-1000XM2 Premium Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones
  • Not heavy at all, for being a full size over ear.
  • The metal bar and size adjuster are very solid but do not make the headphones too heavy.
  • The materials used are pretty comfy and they fold into a smaller size for travel.
  • They're easily adjustable for head size and fold flat to lay on your neck when not in use.
  • The headphones themselves are a bit on the heavy size, but even after a few prolonged listening sessions the weight didn't bother me that much.

What customers say about "Features"
Sennheiser PXC 550 Wireless NoiseGard Adaptive Noise Cancelling, Bluetooth Headphone with Touch Sensitive Control
  • Bluetooth connects easily and quickly. The range isn't insane but, not bad.
  • The connection to my phone, Chromebook, and laptop PC was quick and easy. The sound was rather good, but definitely not great.
  • They connect to two devices, so I can listen to music on my PC at work and take a call on my cell phone without having to do anything, it just works.
  • It works at least twice as well, and covers a much greater frequency range than reduced by the Cowins.
  • PXC 550 Drops the Bluetooth connection even with my cell phone right next to it.
Sony WH-1000XM2 Premium Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones
  • These Headphones are unbelievably good. I use them mostly for bluetooth on my TV when everyone is asleep. The noice canceling feature is unreal.
  • Sound for music with bluetooth on my phone sounds amazing.
  • Sore and for that reason I returned them. This could just be a personal problem which is why I rated them 4 stars. The Bluetooth distance is really good and sound quality is pretty good as well.
  • Sound quality is great and the technology that Sony uses to change the range of noise control depending on whether you're walking, sitting, or commuting is amazing.
  • The NFC function ia nice so you just get it close enough and the earphones automatically connect.
