ANC is on par with Bose QC35ii. Not as good as Sony XM3, but that’s not really why you buy these headphones. These are out and about headphones — not lounging around headphones. ANC should be more than enough to drown out the gym noises.
Sound quality is on par with any other headphone in this price range. Very good, well balanced.
If these were $60, I'd consider them great, but for $300, they really don't live up to the expectation. I haven't yet decided if I like them enough to keep them, but I wouldn't really recommend them over something even as cheap as the Sony XB-400s since the sound quality is on a somewhat similar level, and the bass, comfort, and passive noise isolation on the XB-400s are all much better. The active noise cancellation and "Transparency" on Solo Pro are nice, but... probably not worth it on these ones.
I'm most likely returning these primarily on the comfort issues. If I position them *just right* I can handle wearing them for about two hours, but that's it. They're just too painful to wear compared to everything else I own, and with the Bose QuietComfort 35 II being similarly priced, these just don't make much sense to me.
