    Bose are considered cheap when compared to Sennheisers. Note quite in the same league. Where Sennheisers are high end, Bose might be considered upper low end at best.
    Eh I would agree but look at Head-fi.org and the Bose QC line be it the 15 or 25 and I assume the 35 will be the best ANC headphones on the market according to them. Sound isn't terrible but the comfort of their headphones and the unmatched ANC makes it well worth $350. Sound alone though ? No but the package it delivers I can argue it could*.

    * I didn't spend a dime on my QC35 so it is what it is but I would probably gladly put down $350 for them if I had to. The comfort and ANC is a big positive for them.

    Wait... You don't use a portable dac/amp on your phone? Blasphemy!

    Why should they? I don't ATM and i am fine with it ...ill forsake quality for portability and comfort. That is why i am using the bose QC 35 and Jaybird X2. Both are bluetooth and are comfortable to wear. Most if not all headphones bought at Bestbuy ( Or plug in whatever store you choose) won't need an amp and can be powered easily by the phone. As far as the DAC goes you probably won't get much better sound out of those same headphones .... perhaps the V-Moda M-100, Sennhiessier and etc but not the skullcandy and etc.

    I love my Apple EarPods as well, but after 2 years studying in the city and travelling lots I decided to search for a noise cancelling headphone. Just got a Bose qc35 for my return to school this year. So far it's doing a good job at being comfy and noise cancelling. Looking forward to making lots of history with it.

    I tried them, but they are not the best BT headphones. Because the best BT headphones are Audio-technica WS99BT. Trust me. You just need to replace ear pads for slightly bigger to fit the ears inside.

    I use the Velodyne vPulse because my kind of music is laced with heavy bass. I also use the GRAINAUDIO IEHP 01. Fantastic earphones. I dare say the latter sound much better than the former.

    That's one of those what's best for you might not be the best for the other person comments. Like Gain vs Tide, Dunkin Donuts vs Starbucks, BMW vs Mercedes, Apple vs Android...the list goes on and on. Be happy and enjoy your Headphones by Audio-Technica.

    I use a Sony, my suggestion is always go for wireless headphones and accessories as its not in direct connection to the system and circuitry. Headphones, Mic, mouse, etc. if wet due to spills and other accidents may short circuit or damage the main system, if humid may affect performance. Thanks.

    Meh they Suck IMHO. I got the QC35 for free but would still buy them because A) the most comfortable pair of headphones out of the box B) they are active noise cancellation headphones and C) fantastic customer service.

    I have a pair of solo beats, which have pretty good sound but they're not as comfortable as I thought they would be!

    Well my almost three years old LG Tones wasn't cutting it anymore especially since I picked up my BOSE QC 35's, and I needed some great sounding earbuds while out and about so I picked up a pair of BOSE Soundsport Pulse and WOW. BOSE definitely got it right. I was a little concerned about the length of the battery so I also picked up the BOSE Soundsport charging case. I'm very happy with my purchase....

    I'm not worried about the stinky dongle thingy anymore...LOL

    For portable I use Thinksound TS02's https://store.thinksound.com/product...ate-msrp-99-99 now of course with the iPhone 7+ headphone adapter. Hoping someone comes out with a nice portable DSP that works with the lightning port. I've read about workarounds with a camera kit cable and such but eh. When I'm serious about listening it's at home with my Beyerdynamic DT-880's in the 250ohm flavor. https://www.amazon.com/Beyerdynamic-...mUvbUpU2853648

    According to the specifications the BOSE Soundsport Pulse gets five hours of battery use, so I decided to get the BOSE Soundsport charging case which gives you an additional eighteen hours. That will be enough...LOL

    It has a battery built in. KOOL

    I'm now using my Apple AirPods. Totally happy with them.

    I still have my BOSE Soundsport Pulse, but there collecting dust on my dresser at the moment since purchasing my AirPods. My BOSE QC 35's still get use for those get away from everyone moments.
