If anyone here is wondering which one to get, go for Sony. I have had both of them for a long time and Sony is clearly better. Get Sony (I have no affiliation with Sony, I just want you to have the best experience)

I think the Beats brand definitely just caught up with then you are literally just buying a brand apple thinks we don't need effort on the Beats headphones becuase apple thinks peopla are going to buy it just because of the brand "beats"

@mikldude I’ve never had any problems with mine. Also the ratchet sound that is in linus’s headphones is a one off thing because mine doesn’t do it.

According to some the mic performance on the sonys is pretty average ,and apparently they can have some latency issues , like many wireless headphones , and that did not even get a mention in this video .

They made a slight mistake in this video. If you are using the google assistant button on the Sonys you still have a feature for pausing noise cancelling. You cup your right ear and noise cancelling turns off

I have those exact Sony headphones. They’re the best headphones I’ve bought in a long long time. The noise cancelling is amazing and the audio quality is great. Plus they have their own app with full control over how extreme the noise cancelling is your EQ and stuff.

beats are also really fragile, mines broke 3 times along the plastic bands above the earpiece, i fixed them with steel plates and black epoxy
HackanHacker Hace 11 días
seriously there package when they send there product to stores is better than there own product xD like you can trow the fucking box containing 4 beats and never .. like never they will break xD and no other xompagnie make good package like that for product with higher price/value and quality, in addition of that, returnable product( not beats) no!, even if i sold products and was paid for it, i never did recommend beats to someone xD (not saying is bad) just by my own electronic/gadget knowledge. but i know they are not that good and you can obviously have better for less. yeah i was a poor seller for the shop i was working for selling, it is not for me xD, i prefer help people find a good and durable solution for there needs!

Beats are cool until the padding starts peeling off and the plastic starts cracking and the screws start coming off and ultimately you have to use tape to hold it together but even that does work and now you’re stuck with them because you spent hundreds of dollars.

The amount of people that rock beats headphones because they look flashy is quite tragic. They still absolutely suck but they're still popular for that reason alone.

Well I used the Beats Studio 3 Wireless for over a year now. But I can say that this thing is only good, if you wanna feal that you got robbed. It's structure and build quality isnt the greatest to. It feels so cheap and it breaks easily (my plastic covers broke by only a little impact to) Just dont buy it if you guys wanna use it for a long time.

i got some beats studio 3's on prime day for a really good deal and they didn't wow me, and the pictures didn't show the charging port but it said 2020 model so i assumed it would naturally have type c.......wrong, and the part where he says "they're a mix between over ear and on ear" is correct, they were so uncomfortable, crushed my right ear, the noise cancelation struggled to mute out my fan and leaked a lot of noise through which gave me a migraine, i've since returned them for a full refund, or at the price i got them for and bought the discounted XM3s, and i'm very very impressed with sony and that type c makes charging my turtle beach stealth 700 gen 2(wow thats a ridiculously long name.) and the XM3s easier cause now i only need 1 type c cable to charge them.

Haven't watched the video yet but yes they suck. Overpriced garbage. Currently listening with my wireless beats with wire attached because one day it just stopped working wirelessly. And yes I've tried every combination of button presses and combos I could find from their website and the every other source. I've taken to calling them dead beats by Dre. Or I guess Apple now.

Actually doing it blind would matter, your brain interfers a lot with listening. If you like a certain brand better, your brain will make it sound better... There's actually a funny experiment done. They "hooked" up a tube amplifier and a solid state one to a switch. The switch did nothing but most people said the tube amplifier sounded better..

Joonas Hace un mes
A big mistake was not testing the microphone I have older sony's and they apparently still don't give half a shit about microphone quality and actually use the nc microphone for the calls. It sounds terrible. oh yeah, the no low battery warning is also a bitch. They just say please recharge the headset and turn off. leaving you absolutely fuming.
Azaril Hace un mes
Ive had a pair of plantronics backbeat pro 2's, and damn, those things were lovely, the only reason I gave them up was cause the foam padding started to tear and due do the way I had to wear them at work(I could only have one side on at a time) they made my head sweat much more than I was comfortable with. I now have a pair of seinheiser qwc wireless 2's and now that I'm allowed to wear both sides at the same time, these are everything I have wanted and then some, they can't cancel out every bit of noise at work, but then again, Im a package loader at ups, so nothing can cancel out everything, plus that would probably be dangerous.

One thing not mentioned here, battery life. I have a pair of Beats Studio 2s and Bose QC 35s and the Bose’s battery life is fucking unreal. I can go about 3 weeks of daily use before having to charge them again. The beats need to be charge about every 2-3 uses.

Bro thats what I am telling to people they are like ohh beats are shit and all that I am also kinda of a sony fan because my last pair was my sonys MDR ZX220bt and my beats solo 3s sounds way better, it is more louder,more bass, better insterment separatesion, better clarity and also better battery and design and build quality

how good is the sony headset on PC? Like the overall sound quality and noise cancellation? I want to use it for gaming but I don't care about the mic or mic quality as I won't use it. Can someone give me an honest view on it? Also does wired or wireless on the sony headset make any difference in terms of sound quality. I'm just really trying to find a high quality sounding headset.
