Best Bang for your Buck!
22 January 2018
I am a 65 yr old audiophile and have spent the past 2 months finding a replacement for my bose qc15.
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!
