BOSE has excellent headphones it's too bad they're boring in color... they don't have the cool factor APPLE has on Beats but then again Beats don't have that clarity Bose has... if only Bose made cool color looking looking headphones then they would be aesthetically pleasing and they would sell more... boring black ? Yawn
Actually you can turn off the noise cancellation while using them wirelessly, just download the bose app then you have a bunch of extra settings and three levels of noise cancellation! (high, low and off -> high is default). You can also turn off features like naming the devices when they connect, as well as telling the battery percentage out loud (if you need the info it's in the app)
He also didn't mention that they connect to multiple devices at the same time, which is cool when you have your phone by your computer at work for most of the day. Just pause whichever device is master and play something on slave and it will takeover, no need to disconnect anything
Audio technica are obviously better when it comes to sound quality.
Bose is better in branding and noise cancellation.
Audio tech for me, I have them, mind blowing.
Depends on you after all, what you look for in a headphone.
Hi Marques, thanks for this video! I wonder if the Beats studio wireless with the W1 chip could make them a better choice for iPhone users because of the connecting/handling (despite the downsides compared to the GC35). What's your take on that?
the crushers are really for bass heads they tend to get really tight around the medial Temporalis, the highs get washed out depending on how you want to control the bass as for the Sony ones, these have some really big ear cups, bass sounds a little muffled, the highs get washed out and mids are still pretty solid, In conclusion it's really you're own personal decision it's a pick and choose😉.
Headband cracked for anyone? I know many companies purposely make headsets weak as planned obsolescence. Knowing it I have been reluctant to buy one with a headband. I own apple airbuds and they are great.
Anyone know how long the sale will last? The QC25's have been $100 off for $179 at best buy and on sale through amazon. Is this going to be the new price for these headphones or will the price go back up?

I own these pairs and I just wanted to say that you CAN use Bluetooth without the noise cancellation, you just need to download the app where you can adjust between High, Low, and Off noise cancellation!
i had never tried noice cancellation so i had high expectations. i went to a bose store to try one out and it underwhelmed when i could hear outside sound with noise cancellation on. the sales lady told me it won't prevent hearing all sounds like people speaking or music--more engines and planes. over $300 and still not silent? overpaying. they are one of the most comfortable headphones though. that's bose's best feature imo.
Hi man, I'm new in this and I've been seeing your videos, you're awesome and I think your reviews help us all to understand a lot about tech. I would like to ask for your help, I'm looking for the best and cheapest headphones, what would you recommend? Thanks
There is a suggestion, although the video is quite old :D Test of the QC35 II and the Sony WH XM2 and a comparison :) That'd be amazing ;) I know there are a lot of those out there. But MKBHD is simply the best :D so pls ;)
Watching this on the Bose QC 35 series 2.... I didn’t try the Sony’s on but tried the Beats at an Apple store.. for me I didn’t like the extra grip, and too much base... another thing this video didn’t mention is that you can use the Bose as a passive headphone (ie wired without charge). You can use beats wired but they have to be charged all the time ! Big difference ! I feel some cabin pressure with the Bose sometimes that’s why I leave it either of or low. Since I don’t use google assist, I made that button to toggle between high , low and off ANC
