    Decent

    These headphones are decent but the bass is a little over powering for my taste, even with bass booster off. The noise cancelling isn't up to the par with Bose but still does a good job. I got these for a deal which is the only reason I bought them. Sadly, I'll be returning them due to the bass issue. If you like bass, these are for you, just not my cup of tea.

    Uncomfortable

    Unless you have squirrel ears, this headphone will be uncomfortable. How the heck did they design a headphone that clamps On the ears? I have a special app where I can need to wear headphones for 8 hours. This device fails. The sound is great, noise cancelation suffers unless you have rodent ears. Tested and compared to the Bose 35....not even close. Buy the Bose unless you like your ears pressed flat :) or your listening time is less than 2 hours.

    Good headphones for music

    Overall the sound quality you get from these is quite good. The noise cancellation feature, howvever, is not so good. The Bluetooth pairing can give some trouble when setting up first time but otherwise works fine. The on/off button location often gets in the way when trying to adjust the headphone over your head, turning your power off, so it can be a bit irritating

    My 1st expensive headphone purchase and I have to say I was surprised that the sound quality was almost the same as my cheap AKG earphones. Even the noise cancellation was not that great, I could still hear sounds when I turned it on. It has BASS control which is great but I didn't really need that. Anyways, it maybe a good headphone for someone else but definitely not me.

    Don't know if it's just my headphones but there's absolutely no difference whether the noise cancelling is ON or OFF. You just hear everything around, voices, cars, footseps. Music sounds completely distorted on a plane. The + : long lasting battery, powerful bass. I'm planning on purchasing a different model that would ACTUALLY be noise cancelling.

    Somewhat mixed on performance

    The bass is very heavy and noise cancelling is very active when using as a bluetooth device. Once you connect the auxiliary cord, the bass is not as heavy and the sound is distorted. It also has a preset built in where you feel as if you're listening to music in a concert hall. It's great for listening to music via bluetooth, not so well when connected via auxiliary cord.

    These headphones have great built quality, design and base. Sound quality is great! However, I bought them for noise canceling feature on the budget. Unfortunately, I had to return them and exchange for Soney MDR 1000x. These headphones had zero noise canceling. Buy them for sound and base but not for NC. MDR1000x are 1000% better and on par with Bose QC35 when it comes to NC.

    Odd shape, Bose wins

    You cannot be charging these while listening. Maybe safety concern but I was disappointed. I bought Bose qc25 as well and our family all tried both Sony and Bose during overseas flight. Sony noise cancellation sorta worked, but not nearly as well as Bose. For dollars we decided to keep this model - liked wireless Bluetooth but has some quirks.

    Headphones are ok, but not for an audiophile. Bass levels are excellent, but mids and highs suffer because of it. The headphones are abnormally bulky and stick out creating an awkward feel. Noise cancelling feature is excellent though and works as advertised.

    Good Headphones But Uncomfortable

    I had these headphones for about a week and while they certainly delivered in sound quality they're uncomfortable. The XB950N1s are perfect if you love bass but felt like a vice was clamping down on my head. They're very heavy and put a lot of pressure on my head and jaw.

    They sounded really nice with deep rich base the controls were top notch and very easy to operate and the battery life was phenomenal. But I ended up returning them because they hurt my head after a while and my ears got very hot. This may just be my particular issues as we are all built a little bit different.

    I don't know if my head is too small but the headphones would not stay on my head. I bought them to use the noise cancelling during flights. The noise cancelling works great but the headphones won't stay on my head. If I move my head so do my headphones. I had to return.

    Sound Better The Looks & Fit

    The sound was ok but I ended up returning them since the looks were clunky and fit was bulky. While they were a great deal and value, I ended up returning them and spending about $50 more for the Sony WH-H900N Bluetooth Noise Canceling headphones.

    I purchased these when they were on sale, therefore, they were a good buy for the price. They have decent sound with great noise cancelation. Not too sure how I feel about the extra bass function. At the regular retail price of $250, there are other premium brands not far from that price point.

    I bought a pair of these after leaving my Bose headphones at home on a trip. I found the sound to be good, but the noise suppression is not near as good as the Bose. I experienced a little difficulty getting the Bluetooth to connect, it may be because I have a first generation iPad.

    Not bad at the doorbuster price

    Ok, these can't compete with the $350 Bose bluetooth noise cancelling set, but for the $120 doorbuster price, they are ok. They are a bit small around the ears, the high frequencies are a bit muddy, and the noise cancelling is only fair, but for the price they were a good deal.

    The sound is great but if you work long hours and wanna have your music on this is not for you. I ended up returning them and getting the WH-1000X M3 thaw come with even better skiing and a 30 hope battery

    Pads are thick noise canceling seems ok. Bought on sale for teenage son he has no complaint. At time he uses pods because of the size . Battery life seems good. At sale price under 150$ I'd say they are worth it

    I bought these because they were noise cancelling....but it doesn't do a great job. Yes it cuts some ambient sounds out, but nothing like BOSE.... I'd save the money and just buy the bluetooth versions of these, and the additional cost isnt worth it.
