Summary: I bought Sennheiser PXC 450 after years of replacing parts on the Bose. Bose materials are as cheap as you can find on any sound canceling headphones. For such a premium price you'd think they could provide a cord better than a $19.95 pair of cheap headphones. Don't waste your money.
Excerpt: Expensive for what it is. The sound is fine, but the headset feels like an echo chamber - plugs up my ears. Feels like when you are in a plane and your ears close up - but happens everytime I wore - no matter where, on ground, sofa, etc. Did not like that feeling at all. Headset is large and even set at the smallest setting, would fall backwards. Not comfortable at all. For the price, returned.
Summary: I wanted Bose headphones for a while but didn't get them because of the price. My father and brother surprised me for my birthday. I was surprised that they were nothing like I expected. Felt great, looked great, but the noise wasn't canceled at all. I could listen to music and hear everything around me. The main reason I wanted these was for being able to cancel out noise and thats the only thing it didn't do for me. I'm returning them tomorrow.
Summary: A Set of Sennheiser 380 Pro's give you 32dB of Noise Filtering plus a huge 8Hz to 27KHz Response - yes they are bulkier, but also flat-pack, are much more comfortable, and BLOW these things Away if you crank up the Bas or anything for that matter! But that is the difference between Professional Studio 'phones vs mass-market 'phones! Yet the 380's can be had for less than the Bose! For me it is a simple choice.
Summary: Jeg er ikke sikker på om det er hodetelefonene generelt som er dårlig eller om det bare er meg som har vært uheldig med mitt par. Men jeg opplever disse som egentlig ikke så veldig bra. De er dyre og man forventer det beste. lydkanseleringen viste jeg på forhånd var det beste på markedet pga at jeg tidligere har testet dem. Men mine suser når bare lydkanseleringen er på. En annen ting er at bassen er elendig dårlig. den skurrer.
