Beats suck. I bought 3 for my kids all needed to be returned. Those inferior headphone should be sold at dollar tree. The price tag does not match the quality. They just look good. Wish I never spent all that money.

Anyone with an ear for music can hear how bad beats are. The treble distorts at high volmes and bass is overdone. They went way down hill after monster stopped making them. Theyve always been for the trendy rather than having a quality product. U can pretty good sound cool looking customizable headphones like vmoda for half the price

Yeah, no, sound quality is the biggest part of the decision for me. The Bose sound like... well, Bose. And that's not a good thing in the world of high quality audio. But the noise cancellation is indeed the best with the Bose.

the beats are sold for the community. For example; white family buys it for their spoiled kid, kid brings them to school, black kid robs him, black kid gets them stolen by older brother, older brother shows them off, father steals them from oldest son and then pawns them for crack. Crafty consumer buys them from pawn shop and the cycle starts again.

Your video about the Xbox Adaptive Controller was the first of yours I saw. You've really got it going for you man, keep up the great work. The way you guys approached this here is fantastic. A person can really make a sound decision after seeing this video. Hats off to both of you.

For me it's redundant because they're wireless. They lose, that said, I'd go for some passive Bose if my presonus died. Also, equalisers can level all of these he they have the range but lack in areas

something notable and odd is that the Sonys have an extra gesture which i didn't really see anywhere in the instructions that you get with it, if you put three fingers or your palm on the gesture panel it enables ambient temporarily like a pass-through button. Also if you don't link the headphone specifically for google assistant and just as an audio device you can press and hold on the gesture panel for google assistant instead of loosing the mode button. (I'm assuming this is how it would be since that's how I've setup mine previously and didn't link the google assistant and that button didn't do anything but change modes but i was using a Sony phone so it might work different)(also I'm not a Sony buff or anything I've just coincidentally got a lot of Sony stuff)

Beats have always been trashy, they relied on marketing for people to associate them with a premium product. They are not anywhere near the worth of their cost much less their insane markup.

My brother recently bought the sony ones and ive been using the bose for years now the bose are really only a tick stronger in nc and the sony seem to be a tick stronger in music quality also the sony have softer cussions id really recommend making a buying desicion on wether you want real buttons or not, ill go with sony next i really like the touch control, what they didnt mention is that you can pause the sony and activate ambient noise when covering the touchcup with your hand if you need to talk someone quicklu or have to listen to something, music or whatever will continue when you remove your hand from the cup. Also i use the bose every day several hours and they last around a week and the sony also have around 30h uptime i think.

I have had my Bose for I believe over 5 years now. They aren't even Bluetooth and require AAA batteries, but I love them. They are still my go-to for taking on the airplane and even daily gaming. They are extremely comfortable and sound great. It will be hard to consider buying a different brand now unless the price was a decent amount cheaper. Definitely a solid purchase. Also I have replaced the ear pads 2 times so far, but the headphones still work like new!

Stop fucking belittling beats. They are the best. I don’t want those cheap ass other head phones. Beats are the only way to go. I bet you didn’t even have them turned on. Did you see the light on? Maybe it’s because you didn’t have an iPhone and they are the best phone.

Flew questions you didn't answers: what's the battery life from full to 0? What is the charging time? how they works with computers(some gives problems with windows and don't work well, or at all)? wich one is the loudest in volume (both in noisy and non noisy enviroment)? At max how earable from outside is what you are listening to(i mean i don't want other people hear thta i'm listening to an audiobut or my shity music)? I think all thees are question thta averyone (at least like me) would ask . . . Great video by the way . . . and sub to Pewdiepie!

The average consumer doesn't care about how high of a bitrate their headphones support. If they buy these, it's mainly for the noise cancelling and decent audio quality.
