    Take a look at the Bose site. They should have firmware notes
    Ahhh, not sure if you saw my post or not, but after I updated my QC 35's I posted the results.

    I'm at home now and after I get cleaned up, I'll update my QC-35 headset. Thanks again for the tip, Spencerdl.

    I use both the AirPods and the Bose QC25. I wanted the QC35, but I can’t justify the price just yet.

    I have:

    B&W P5
    Sony WH-H900N
    AirPods
    Yamaha model I forget
    Some old Koss

    The Sony's are new and so far are making me happy and believing you don't have to buy Bose for good noise cancelling.

    The B&W are not active noise cancelling but very nice neutral sound, superb build, and just nice items.

    As for AirPods.... Isn't there a rule that says you just need to shut up and buy them if you have an iPhone?

    The only change I’ve made in this regard from my previous post in August 2017 is that I’ve added a pair of Jabra Elite 65t wireless earbuds. I now use them at the office because they’re discreet and phone calls sound great with them.

    I'd have to say I don't like that rule. I upgraded my list to BeatX. Finally broke down and went wireless though I still have my Thinksound buds and the dongle for when I don't need wireless convenience. The BeatsX give me the W1 functionality of the airpods but I don't have to worry I'm going to lose one or both buds and they fit my ears a lot better. Especially after replacing the tips with some nice Comply foam tips.

    The Beats are very good and maybe I should have qualified my comment with how good the AirPods are for phone calls and overall versatile use.

    I returned the Beats because the basic design makes you hear too much of yourself in a phone conversation and blocks out too much ambient sound for the use at work. The AirPods with the EarBuddyz or similar got me advantages of the BeatsX and AirPods. If it was all about workouts and sealing out the rest of the world I might have kept the Beats.

    A lot of people I know who do the same work I do, who do sales, and other jobs seem to love the AirPods as I do where they're as much a primo telecom device as they are for music and podcasts.

    I wanted wireless headphones but didn't want to break the bank. So when I saw these on Thrifter earlier this year, I bought a pair, and have been very pleased with them.

    At the moment, a pair of Zero Audio carbo Tenores, they are good enough and better than most that I have tried, I like them a lot and will not spend a lot of money to listen to ultra compressed streamed music, so these are fine at about £35 ish !

    There are great bargains our there and some non-Apple Jaybirds we have are good. The Sony ANC set I got proves Bose no longer rules in that category. Something that tells me a lot about AirPods is seeing associates not prone to spend or have tech toys love them so much. I see others in work like mine and our vendors who must collaborate a lot go for them. They're no doubt premium price items but wow are they nice.

    I'd really have liked to do something like airpods after seeing a lot of Android co-workers with the wireless Android versions of things like that, but based on how horribly the wired earpods fit me, I just couldn't do it. Even if they didn't fall out I still think they wouldn't sit properly and I'd have sound issues all the time. I know the BeatsX isn't perfect in replicating all the W1 functionality but they're definitely more advanced than standard bluetooth headphones so I'll take it. I never make phone calls with headphones (intentionally at least i.e. would only be if someone called me while they were on). I generally only put headphones on specifically to listen to music, movies, etc. Now, having said all that, I've never actually tried a pair of airpods. I'm assuming you can't just try them on at an apple store (hygiene issues?) but I could be wrong.

    The items in the graphic I posted earlier solve the occasional fit problem I have. For me they can fall out of one ear but not the other. Having tried the Beats cousins of AirPods I can say the seal made them good for music but not for calls, comfort and general utility in the work day.

    I use buds for phone calls so I can type well and address privacy plus courtesy all at once. I realize that can be a non-issue for the work many do.

    I swear by my Audio Technica M50x’s! They’re a great price for the audio quality and have good durability and longevity to boot. They can get uncomfortable after a few hours, but if you aren’t listening to music (or at least with over-ear headphones) 24/7, you should be good to go.

    I have the M40x and they sound downright awesome. If I want comfort and noise cancellation with a very good sound, I’ll quickly reach for my Bose QC-25, but when I want to hear everything possible in a song, I reach for my Audio-Technica M40x.

    I have several for different purposes.
    Air pods for just listening to music doing nothing, or reading, or just walking around the neighborhood.
    Bose SoundSport Free for the gym.
    Trekz Titanium bone conduction for riding my bike on a trail. Road riding, I don’t listen to anything.
    Skullcandy Crushers for when I want to block everything out.
    EarPods if I forget to charge any of them. Especially the Bose.
    BlueTiger Elite for taking calls while driving. Absolutely eliminates all background noise for who I’m talking to while driving a tractor trailer. Try to do it as little as possible, but, sometimes dispatch needs updates.

    Bower & Wilkins PX for travel / commute since they have ANC and sound great
    Master & Dynamic MW07 for the same thing really depends on my mood if I want big headphones or not.
    v-moda Bassfit for the gym
