That was a really good video, one of my favourites as of late. The dynamic between you two, the editing, and the comparisons within the review were really useful. I laughed a lot (I usually smirk at most). The "overall" joke was really funny, hahahaha.

I've tried all except the Surface headphones. I would pick up the Bose in an instant. The Sonys are great as well, but the comfort isn't quite there for me and I can't say fast charging USB C is a top priority on headphones for me. The Beats are in no way trash, they're just worse.

No 3.5mm headphone output on headphones = No buy! How the fuck do they expect me to plug it into my laptop? With a fucking dongle permanently attached? Ridiculous. I got my fucking MOUSE on the right of my laptop, i dont need a 4cm dongle sticking out onto my mouse mat bumping into my hand all the time. "Caveman tech" yeah sure, my 32gb ram 1070gtx laptop is "caveman" xD Only retarded phone manufacturers remove headphone jacks to sell proprietary overpriced garbage earbuds, has nothing to do with caveman or not.

To increase decrease the sound on the Sony, you stroke up or down on the side of the ear cup. To hear ambient sound, you place your palm against the ear cup. It's a good UI

As far as I know, the Bose can connect to multiple devices at once seamlessly, while the Sony is limited in that realm. That is a major drawback for Sony, IMHO.

Basically the difference between Bose and Sony here is comfort. I don't like the ear cups on the Sony ones, so I prefer Bose becasue they're way softer and more comfortable. If you like the Sony ear cups, do those. Also like he said, the Sony ones put a lot of weight on the top of the head and that feels uncomfortable for me, so I would buy Bose.

Everyone hates on beats but at the end of the day everyone got em. I have the bose QC35 and the Studio 3. Beats are way louder and have way better bass. Now noise canceling is dogshit on the beats and flawless on the bose. Now look-wise, the beats look the slickest on anyone’s head, they ain’t bulky like the bose which look like you’re entering in a fuckin NASA spaceship they don’t look good. But if u don’t give a fuck about how they look, then get the bose. Sony blows btw don’t waste your time and those retarded ass fuckin Microsoft headphones cmon. Stick with Bose or beats.

i have Corsair VOID's, for €70,- and i like them wide soundstage, clear high's, ok lows, 7.1 dolby. included mic, also not bad, but not the best ever. no fold, but cups do swivel. absolutely over ear, so they do rest on *my* head, and can fall off *my* head, but comfy to wear basicly all day, unless you really do like 18 hours non-stop. wireless as well, good battery life, even after a year or in my case almost 2. if you need a good headphones for around 70 to a 100 or so, go for these.

They suck because they're overly expensive. You can buy 40-50mm drivered studio monitors starting at $70, crank up the bass a touch ( they can handle it ) and they'll sound pretty much exactly like these overpriced all style, no substance headphones, perhaps better.

You should really try out the Bang & Olufsen H9i, Bowers Wilkins PX and Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 Wireless. All of them are fairly close to the Sony 1000XM3 and Bose QC35ii. Espacially the B&W PX is very good. There are a lot of reasons to buy them instead of the Bose or the Sony headphones.
