The clear winner here is the Bose QC35.
* When the Bose QC35 noise cancellation activates, it sounds like you are in a totally soundproofed room – it has a blissful sound deadening effect. The Sennheiser M2 noise cancellation deadens sound to a lesser degree, resulting in what sounds like very faint white noise (you don't hear this, however, when playing music)
* Both pairs of headphones let you hear people talking to you if they are close to you. While the speech sounds muffled in both cases, it is slightly louder with the Sennheiser
* Inside the home, the Bose more effectively cancels out noises from my washing machine, tumble dryer and coffee bean grinder than the Sennheiser
* On the street, the Bose more effectively cancels out noise from traffic than the Sennheiser. Neither pair of headphones can cancel the noise from loud exhausts of motorcycles and certain cars
* On the street, I get quite a lot of wind noise from the Sennheiser. I get almost zero wind noise from the Bose
* On flights, the Bose more effectively cancels out the noise from the aircraft's engines and environmental systems by a large margin. The noise cancellation on the Bose seems to be aimed squarely at frequent fliers and it works very well
* Both pairs of headphones include noise cancellation on their inbuilt microphones. The Sennheiser mic is slightly more effective at cancelling out ambient noise than the Bose
I'm not an audiophile, so this is an entirely subjective comparison but I would say the Sennheiser jogs past the Bose by a small margin across the board and a slightly larger margin when it comes to vocals. Both provide what I consider to be very good quality sound considering the active noise cancellation but I would the say the Sennheiser provides better audio quality, certainly for music
* With noise cancellation active, the Sennheiser headphones appear to have a slightly brighter and rounder sound across different types of music (blues, jazz, rock, classical, opera, electronica and old school metal), whereas the Bose sounds slightly flatter
* Both pairs of headphones use a single button on the right earpiece to control volume, skipping forward and back, pause and play
* The Bose can be paired with up to 4 devices at any one time. You toggle a switch on the right earpiece to connect to each device and the headphones tell you which device you're connecting to
* The Sennheiser can be paired with up to 8 devices at any one time and there is no button to toggle between devices since it automatically connects to all devices to which it is paired and where Bluetooth is turned on. If you're playing music through device 1 and then start playing music through device 2, the headphones switch to device 2 (as long as both devices are connected to the headphones and Bluetooth is turned on for both devices)
* Both pairs of headphones hand calls over Bluetooth (tested on iPhone 6) and both use a single button on the right earpiece to control phone call functions
Fit and comfort:
While both pairs of headphones are super comfortable over long periods (have used them both for up to 12 hours at a time), the Bose provide a better fit for me (small head, relatively narrow face). It's possible that someone with a bigger or different shaped head may find the Sennheiser more comfortable.
* The ear cups on both pairs of headphones are oval in shape and big enough to fit over the ears without touching them. They are soft and very comfortable on both pairs of headphones
* Because of the oval in shape, they are comfortable when leaning back against a seat back or pillow
* The Bose earpieces fit against my head at a better angle than the Sennheiser, so feel more comfortable and provide a lovely, close fit and a better seal
* The headband on the Bose has soft padding, whereas the headband on the Sennheiser is covered only by thick leather. Surprisingly, after about 4 hours, I can feel pressure from the Bose headband and my scalp feels slightly sensitive under the headband. I've never felt any discomfort from the Sennheiser headband
* The Bose are lighter than the Sennheiser, which adds to the comfort level
Build and use:
I haven't owned either pair of headphones long enough to talk about longevity but both appear to be well constructed
* Overall, the Bose has a much neater and more compact design and shape, whereas the Sennheiser stick out from your head more
* Adjusting fit on both pairs of headphones is easy but the Bose has a neater mechanism that disappears inside the headband, whereas the Sennheiser earpieces are attached to flat metal bits and slide up and down them for fit. If you have a small head like me, these metal pieces stick out below the bottom edge of the earpieces
* The Bose has larger, sturdier buttons, making them easier to use. They are also positioned perfectly, so are easier to find. Whereas the Sennheiser buttons are smaller and feel slightly flimsy and have a little more play. The Sennheiser buttons aren't quite in the perfect position and my fingers search for them sometimes
I got into headphones a lot more about 5-6 years ago. I appreciated Bowers & Wilkins a lot more back then. They do make excellent sounding headphones BUT THEY HURT. Many people reviewed that they were comfy but I found my jaws hurt. I had headaches when I wore the P5s. Sounded great but I didn't want to wear them. Wore the P3's. I gave up on sound for comfort. Except they hurt too.
Clearly I have a sensitive head. I changed to Bose - which spends a lot on research and development in making comfy headphones. Some argue sound isn't great - I think they sound good. But not like my old Bowers and Wilkins. I currently have the Bose Soundlink AE2. Comfy not bad. My husband has the QC35. Much better actually. Comfier and sound better. Expensive though.
I got the Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 Wireless Around Ear for my husband. He loves everything about the QC35 EXCEPT the sound (he likes more bass). He did not like these. So I decided to try them before returning. Just to check it out for a day before I return them.
Wow, these are great. I thought I would return them because I knew they wouldn't be comfy. The Bose QC35 are comfier but after a few days these are very comfy. My test is how I feel when I get to work or home after my 45 min commute. In term's of comfort here's the list (top being more comfy):
1. Bose QC35
2. Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 Around Ear Wireless
3. Bose Soundlink AE2 (these could be tied with number 2 but not sure)
(Other's I've owned are not wireless so not including here).
In terms of Sound I'd rank them:
1. Momentum 2.0 Wireless - deeper bass, richer sound than any of the two below. And more detailed sound.
2. Bose QC35 - great / excellent but not as good as the momentum's.
3. Soundlink AE2 - lacking in bass, but not bad.
The reason my husband didn't like this is because the Captune app's equaliser does not work on Spotify. I think this is actually an omission if you like to change your music. Personally I don't care, I don't use it. But some do and for those, this may be important to know. The equaliser does work on music on your phone however (on their app which automatically places those songs in their app). I have heard some say that the "effects" work all over but I have not found that. However, I could just be using it incorrectly. As I said earlier, I don't care about this feature so haven't messed around with it a lot. I do believe these sound fantastic however.
In terms of Noise Cancelling there's no contest. The QC35 are MUCH better. That being said, I don't mind these for commutes. In fact, it quiets the world rather than shuts it, which is better for commuting (safer) in my opinion. However if you're a frequent air traveller I would opt for the QC35's. In fact I own a pair of QC20i's (wired in ear) and I'm definitely not getting rid of those. They are excellent for air travel and the momentum's just won't cut it. For commuting, brilliant though. One other thing to note, is the pressure. I don't feel dizzy with these. I felt dizzy with QC15s. I felt dizzy with Parrot Zik's. I feel less dizzy with QC20i's and less with QC35s. With the Momentum's I barely feel it. I did for about 15 min the first day but since then, I feel no nauseous feeling (it's wrong to say I felt nauseous at all, I didn't. I did with QC15s though).
If these were priced at £329, I'd have given these a five star. But they aren't. Just like every other headphone, you give a little, you get a little. There will be some sacrifices. But for £379 you want a winner in all areas. These are a winner in sound and comfort and a great winner. These are not a winner in noise cancelling. For me they are a keeper I think. I will be selling my AE2's and replacing it with these.
