    Im loving the noise cancellation for work and on the bus.
    The bus has to be one of the worst environments with the noisy engine, everything flexing and shaking. Sony cancels out most of this.

    I quite like using the ambient modes too at work, so you can adjust the headphones to pick up voices but cancel out other frequencies. The touch gestures are a nice feature too.

    I do notice the infamous creaking sound people were going on about in reviews too.
    Its not a major issue for me though.

    What I did wish Sony would of done better is have a UC capable device and a noise cancelling mic..
    would be an all round winner for work and listening to music

    for Music, they dont compare to my HD800's, but they do get the job done!

    Koss PortaPro. Love those cans!
    Lifetime warranty as well. Literally the only portables you will ever need to buy.
    Agreed, Koss Porta Pros for the price are hard to beat alternatively the DT770s are a good choice for a bit more coin

    QC35 v MDR1000X

    Is there any retailer that will let you try these out for a week, and let you return the pair you don't want? I have no problem paying up front for both. I have annoyingly big ears - 9cm height 6 cm width. BFG, Dumbo, Quark pick one every other ****er has.
    I'm in desperate need for headphones for long haul flights.

    Thought I'd chime in, bought the 1000X from Noels a couple weeks ago for $485, loving the performance of them. Being an Android user, APT-X was a must for me, which the Bose didn't support.

    On the other hand, supposedly Bose are coming out with a new model (mentioned in some leak)

    With the WH1000X not far from release will the MDR's get a price drop? Nearly copped them on the weekend but resisted.

    What time was that? I was there at 3pm just before watching American Made(quiet enjoyable jaunt with Tom Cruise) They had the grey for $399, black for $499. I asked why I couldn't get the black for $399, the abrupt salesman said no way its black piss off. And something about Auckland not allowing it. FU then.

    Popped in around midday went to all the tech retailers to try them , no one had any on display. The kid at Noel Leemings told me the 550s had the same drivers as the 1000xs so try those exactly the same except no noise cancelling.... yeah righto bud, I'll catch you later.

    As for me I like rotating ear cushions provide an ideal fit, very comfortable for transport etc. For example that I found - Dr. Dre Power Beats2 Wireless Headphones SR. And price is not so big.

    Anyone who recommends "Beats" headphones should be beaten...

    This!

    On a semi-related note though, I picked up some Skullcandy Method Wireless sports earphones for $70 the other week and they are excellent for the gym and running!

    If you can get past the foldable side of things then the DT770 is best in its class really. Try Computerlounge or other sound stores.

    The sennheiser HD25 is a great low profile option too. Not foldable, but close in it's compact-ness.

    Get the higher end HD-25 if you go that way though.

    Still rate them? Currently looking for some, and these look to be one of the better sounding cans for the money (on special currently).

    Nevermind, YOLO'd.
