Based on what I've read, the QC35 just works. If you prioritise comfort, easy pairing of devices and call quality, Bose would be your pick. If you prioritise sound quality and you're willing to take the chance that your headphones won't come with the creaky headband, then go for the 1000x. I ordered the Sonys.

If it's just features, any brand can probably live up to the spec sheet.

The real question is how does it stack up in real life.

Mainstream Nakamichi audio gear haven't really seen much love or recommendations - aside from the value for money.

I first stumbled upon the MDR-1000X on tech channels on YouTube introducing it and also comparing it to the QC35. To be honest , before watching any of those videos I dont even know either of them exist. not really a audiophile , used to think that my classmate who spends $400 on headset as out of his mind
After numerous comparisons mostly implying that the Sony is really something that is worth recommending + Qoo10 having fantastic promo that is why I pulled the trigger. Also thanks to people in this forum contributing too.

Do you guys know if there is a headband problem that some people is experiencing?? widespread??

I own both and after months of use, I prefer QC35.
Don't get me wrong, 1000X is really good, but the comfort and noise cancelling of QC35 is top notch. I even tested both in a 9hr flight 1000X gave me discomfort in jaw line but QC35 I can wear it all throughout the flight.



1000X also got the wobbly like sound distortion when you are walking which the QC35 doesnt have, maybe it is due to the noice cancelling implementation. Luckily mine doesn't suffer the cracked headband issue. In terms of sound quality, yes I would agree that 1000X is a tad better than QC35 but not that much.

First impressions:

looks and design: pretty nice and light , clamping force is just nice and not too tight. heats up a little after wearing for awhile but still quite comfortable (used to wearing headsets by now).

music and noise cancelling: My first impression of the noise cancellation was WOW, My first pair of noise cancelling headset and its seriously AMAZING. music is nice and clear and balance.

The gestures controls are straight forward and easy too use too!

However currently facing a strange issue , anyone of you guys has like static noise on the right side of the headset? similar to wind blowing sound?? normal??

also something I am not so sure is , lets say I am using my desktop/phone plug into my headset via 3.5mm jack will it still need battery to listen or does the battery life strictly used for wireless?
