So let's talk headphones... first - these are not the kind of headphones we would use in a studio setting. In the studio, we use wired headphones with no charging and no connecting, etc... we just need them to work right then. No ifs, ands or buts. So a GREAT MANY of us use SONY MDR-7506 Professionals or the Sony MDR-V6 Professionals or some variant - pretty much the same headphone, just upgraded. They sound incredible and can survive being put on (grabbed) and taken off (slung), 10+ times per hour, 4-6 hours per day, 5-7 days per week, etc... and they last five plus years with that kind of abuse.
Sony is almost the only brand I see consistently in the studios. Occasionally someone will have some exotic that they prefer, but Sony is the workhorse for the industry the past 20-25 years now.
Why am I telling you this? Because Sony knows how to make a great headphone.
So.. is the Sony WH1000XM2 Premium Noise Cancelling Wireless headphone a great headphone? I think so. Here's a list of why I think so:
1. They sound great. Not quite as good as my MDR-7506's to my ear, but close. EVEN with noise cancelling turned on - which USUALLY decreases sound quality. These get it right. I can't tell enough difference for me to choose to turn sound cancelling off. Usually I would give up the noise cancellation for better quality. I can't hear the difference to make it worth turning it off with these - they are that good.
2. And they ARE good at noise cancelling. I've read up on the technology and I'm pretty sure there are elves and fairies in the headphones. It is amazing.
3. They are easy to use. The entire headphone cup is a touch screen interface. Well, not screen, but touch. You swipe and you don't have to find a specific spot - just touch, swipe, tap and you are good to go. It just works.
4. Battery charge life. They charge fast, 70 minutes of charge in just a few minutes and dozens of hours on a full charge. Easy to charge and use.
5. VOICE PROMPTS. I hate putting on a set of blu-tooth wireless headphones and guessing what the blinking lights mean, or what setting I am on - these headphones talk you through the process. It is so much better.
6. Looks, this is low on the list for me, but they look great.
If I am going for perfection, I'll probably get out my MDR-7506's but in the car, or a noisy space, or when I don't want wires or when I want easy to use controls, these are the way to go. Very well done Sony!
The touchpad is not a new feature but it is worth mentioning since Bose does not have this feature. Swipe up or down to control the volume. Swipe right or left to change the music. It is very intuitive and easy. You can even press long to activate Siri. Double tap to stop music or take a phone call.
Also, you can cup the right ear and disable the noise canceling and listen to others.
You can check the battery level by the home screen of a smartphone. I have only seen even numbers such as 100%, 70%, and 50% (then I would charge so I have not seen low numbers because of the reason). Maybe the headphone cannot tell the battery level precisely.
Bluetooth connection is great. I can leave my phone and go to next room without breaking the connection. Switching the devices is not easy though. With Bose, you can connect two devices at the same time. However, with 1000XM2, you need to disconnect one device to use other device.
To switch the device (updated)
1. Go to setting. Bluetooth, then disconnect WH-1000XM2.
2. Go to the other device, hit setting, Bluetooth, then click to connect.
If you don't want to touch the device connected currently but wans to switch the device (for example, 1000XM2 is connected to iPad that is in your bag and you don't want to pull it out), you can
1. Turn off the 1000XM2
2. Turn on and keep pressing power button to activate bluetooth pairing.
3. Go to your device you want to connect. Hit setting, bluetooth, then connect to 1000XM2.
Honestly, I don't mind doing this but I wish we could connect two iOS devices at the same time.
Sony and Bose are both excellent noise cancelling (NC) headphones. While QC35 cannot turn off the NC, 1000XM2 can turn of NC. Previous 1000X had a problem with phone call where you cannot hear yourself (so you end up shouting). Sony has fixed this problem and now 1000XM2 let you hear your voice easily with voice focus mode. Making phone call is much easier now.
#Sony headphone connect app
This app allows you to change the setting of NC based on your activity. You can pre-set the level of NC + voice focus according to your activity (rest, walking, running, and transportation). For frequent fliers, it can adjust the pressure too. You can also change where the sound comes from. For example, you can set as if the sound comes from your back.
When I was using 1000XM2 in the office, I used voice focus mode. It was very interesting experience because I did not hear any noise from construction etc but I heard my coworkers voice. Voice is picked up from the mic so it is an interesting experience.
It honestly looks fantastic. I usually pick the black color but I tried gold at this time. The case of headphone had two-tone color (gold in the middle). It looks great. Please look at attached pictures as it tells you more how nice it looks. The headphone has hinges so you can actually make it very small and put it into the case.
I cannot speak too much about the sound because I am not a professional musician. However, in my opinion, it sounds absolutely nice. It sounds even better than Bose QC35 but it is just my opinion. With the connect app, you can also change the sound effect such as Arena, Club, Outdoor Stage, and Concert Hall. It is subjective so you might want to try it before you buy, but I am very much satisfied.
This is where BOSE QC35 (quiet comfort) comes into play. WH 1000XM2 is comfortable but I feel my ears are hot after using this for 1 hour. The pad is touching my ears with 1000XM2 whereas QC35 has deeper ear pad. QC35 is much more comfortable for me.
I know cracking was the problem with 1000X. So far, it has been OK but I will definitely give updates after using several months (hope nothing will happen). It looks very sturdy and does not make the clicking sound when I open the headphone.
So which one you should buy? I am very happy with 1000XM2 because it has many features and long battery life (30 hours!). However, you may want to try it on before you buy because BOSE is more comfortable.
