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?
The static noise you hear is when music is playing or when no music is playing? It is fairly normal to hear very faint noise when you switch on the noise-cancelling mode but the noise should not be loud. The noise should not be bothering or irritating. If the noise is loud then this could be a problem.

Battery is used when you power on the headphone. When you plug in using the wire, you can either not power on the headphone or you can power on the headphone. Not power on the headphone means you cannot use the noise cancelling mode. So when you plug in the wire, you can either use the headphone like regular headphones without noise cancelling or power on the headphone and activate the noise cancelling mode.

Honestly feel that the noise cancellation on the 1000x is better than QC35! But sound wise, Bose will be better.

It depends on whether you need the noise cancelling. If you do travel overseas often or you are constantly in a noisy environment, the 1000x will be better if you do not mind about sound!

Sound wise can't tell the difference since I'm not audiophiles, but if you travel a lot QC35 is your best friend

For those who don't mind buying the MDR 1000, go to amazon now
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...790_em_1p_0_im
(It is selling at $229.99) No import/gst. Free shipping.
Approximately SGD$320. (Only the black colour one)

*Not a referral link.
Just bought my Bose QC35. Its really good. However, amazon just sent me an update on the price drop.
