    I actually have a little respect for the brand because they pick a celebrity to endorse their product. I have the Sony MW-1000s and the Jabra Elite 85h and personally I like the Sony's a bit more but the Jabra has better phone functionality and for the bug head guys the Sony is more comfy.

            “Ok”, “good” and “fine” should never be how you describe the sound on something that’s $500
            Yea of course there’s $1000+ headphones that sound much better but if I want ok, good and fine I’ll just buy some $30 headphones.

              So for $500 they give you a trash bag to carry them in 🙄

                Got the mh30 for almost 4 years now, they and the cable still look and work like in day 1
                Awesome quality 👍🏻
                Why are they so expensive? The look and feel like they will last your whole lifetime... And I am pretty sure they will

                      I mean the bose 700's are 400 dollars. And I'm assuming these sound even better. And I'm a bose fan.

                        The carry case is disappointing for such an expensive pair of headphones.. No protection at all.

                              With the MW65's - you have to let them burn in for around 18-20 hours of normal listening before they REALLY start to shine, the drivers are insanely high quality. The noise cancelling might not quite be on par with the latest, but they solidly perform as well as my older QC35's. Trading plastic and neodymium drivers (cheap) for lambskin leather, anodized aluminum, and beryllium drivers (Spoke with a rep, they use pure vapor-deposited beryllium drivers, costs $250 to manufacture the drivers alone for these.) is well worth the $150 price difference over Bose/Sonys offerings if you care more about sound quality and driver performance. With noise cancelling high and your music over 50% you won't be able to hear ANYTHING at all anyways, the passive isolation is very good.

                                  3:30 A guy is testing his headphones' audio quality using wireless connection and a fucking phone, is this a joke?
                                  Get a PC with audio card will you. This is ridiculous.
