Plantronics are clearly attempting a premium feel with the gift like unfolding box. Unfortunately the graphic lining the box which I think is water droplets just looks messy.
The hard carry case I got with the 2 se model is a great sturdy zip up plastic affair with soft lining and mesh pockets inside, the headphone cups twist forward to lie flat in the case.
The USB and 3.5mm cables are quite short and don't have the premium feel for example of the Jabra Revo equivalents
Day to day use
Pairing and connecting is simple and fast. Slightly annoying that the voice prompts clip at the end of the recording. The headphones are large even when compared to other active noise cancelling (ANC) headphones such as the Bose quiet comfort Q35. I understand some of this is to provide passive noise shielding but they still feel like they could be trimmed down a little. However, they are comfortable to wear with soft padding on the headband.
The active noise cancelling works great on the street and blocks out chatter and car noise really well. Travelling on the underground and on the bus you still hear the low engine rumble however, you still hear music clearly including punchy bass and clear high frequencies even at half-volume, which is way better than my previous Jabra Revo non-ANC headphones which I had to crank up to maximum in these environments. I especially notice this when listening to podcasts which tend to be mixed quieter than music and are easily legible at half-volume. The 'open mic' feature works eerily well and allows you to hear the outside environment with the headphones still on for example when crossing a road.
The slide-off auto-pause feature generally worked well, though I found it accidentally triggered a couple of times in high winds and when doing movement in the gym. I quickly got used to adjusting the volume using the left ear cup although I occasionally accidentally triggered track skips as the skip and pause controls are not so well demarcated by touch alone.
Although I have had many bluetooth headphones before these were my first ANC ones which was the the main attraction. On this front they deliver the goods and mean I am able to enjoy music and podcasts whilst travelling without cranking the volume to compensate for noisy surroundings. Whilst they feel slightly bulky and not inspiringly styled I am happy to pay this price for the sound quality, wearing comfort and shielding provided.
I initially checked out the qc35 and found it did not come close to the sound quality of my qc15s - yes I am very fussy!
I then looked at the beoplay H9 and Bowers & Wilkins PX - both looked stunning especially the B&Ws. I ended up ordering the B&Ws but had to return them immediately as I found them to be quite heavy and not very comfortable to wear - the headband rubbed against my bald head unfortunately - they are beautifully made however I must confess.
I then turned to youtube and came across these little beauties which are almost half the price of the cans mentioned above.
True they are a little base heavy but that can easily be dealt with by a downloadable equalizer app. The sound quality is exceptional across the range and my music tastes vary from led zeppelin to Mozart !
Needless to say I am delighted with my purchase and as far as I am concerned they are the best value out there whether you want noise cancelling or standard headphones.
UPDATE SEPTEMBER 5 2018
Sorry to report that they are no longer fit for purpose. An intrusive crackling noise (static) when used at above average volume levels. My bose wired headphones still work great so not the end of the world I guess but still very disappointing. Too late for a refund!
The sound quality while a bit bass heavy is superb - I've never spent over £60 on a set of headphones but I listen to a lot of music and they are comfortably the best I've heard. I haven't tried the bose quiet comforts or the sony's but i cant see much that would justify spending £100+ in this department.
The bluetooth is generally excellent - connection is seamless and all the controls work well. I've noticed the occasional jitter when going through a few walls/longer distances and when two devices are connected but the range is also very impressive. Switching between two devices can get annoying and they can interfere with each other but these aren't big issues. Big sell for me was being able to just get up and walk about without the wires/phone and I was proved right here. Even just lying down not having wires everywhere is a big plus.
The battery life is immense - charges in no time and lasts for ages. Haven't tried any of its competitors but all the review mags say this is a huge selling point over its rivals.
The design/comfort was the reason i returned the original pro's and these are clearly vastly improved in both departments - 50g lighter, more compact and much better looking. If i wear them for a few hours my ears can get a bit sore and beady (probably not helped by my massive head) but again I wouldn't call it a problem.
Noise cancelling - these are often sold as being 'rivals' to the Bose and Sony as premium noise cancelling wireless headphones, but I think in all honestly in this one department this might be a bit of a stretch. It does block out some noise, particularly on the lower end, but its far from being 100%, and the padding seems to do half the work. Don't get me wrong - it 'works' and is still a useful extra feature to have, especially in busy/noisy environments - just don't think its on the same level or even just off the bose/sony because its clearly still a peg below. Think it may only be an issue for some people but I sometimes found the noise cancelling put some extra pressure on my ears as well, kind of like they were being 'sucked in.' Read the occasional review of these that have said something similar so don't think it is just me.
- There is a tiny bit of noise leakage but you can only hear it at top volumes/ when someone is within reach of you. I wear these at my university library with the volume reguarly around the 80% mark and have never had any issues.
In most respects these are excellent - superb in most departments and without any major flaws, they are clearly a solid alternative to its more expensive rivals, particularly if you are on more of a budget. That said, I was a bit underwhelmed with the noise cancelling and there is definitely room for a bit of tweaking here and there. While good value at £220 they aren't 'cheap' by any stretch, so didnt feel i could give them full marks. Big thumbs up on the whole though - would 100% get them again given the choice.
