Three new models on top of WH-1000XM2

https://www.whathifi.com/sony/wh-1000xm2/review

WI-1000X, neckband one.



WF-1000X


Apple Airpod killer? I think so.

Tested the wi -1000x and was really impressed by it, however the high res made most of my music sounded too unnatural, overwhelming bass, highs too piercing. I settled for Sennheiser momentum 2 in ear Bluetooth

I just got sennheiser momentum wireless 2.0 over-the-ear headphone during the IT show.
To pair it up with my PC which does not has any BT, i bought a Bluetooth Dongle. However it turns out that the bluetooth dongle cannot pair up with the headphone. (It is working fine pairing to my mobile phone.)

This coul be due to the fact that
1) the BT dongle/adapter might be a pure receiver, might not have transmitter function.
2) the BT dongle does not support the required BT profile such A2DP, HSP, HFP AVRCP and DIP.

Anybody has any ideas how to make things work with my newly bought BT dongle ?

If not, has anyone here bought a BT dongle which works with wireless headphone ?? (Particularly Sennheiser Momentum Wireless 2.0)

Many thanks guy !

Go to aliexpress buy Bluetooth csr dongle for around 3sgd. I bought from there and works perfectly fine with my momentum in ear wireless.

High resolution means compatibility for 24/96KHZ files.
I think you are referring to the DSHEE HX engine which
upscale non High res/HD to HD format.

Yes I think that's the more accurate term. Haven't heard the headphones yet

How does the Sony 1000x ANC works? It blocked out noise but when someone is very close to me, I can hear the other party's voice. I can hear the sound of I snap my fingers. Other than that it blocked out all noise.

Is this correct?

Plantronics BackBeat Pro 2

Anyone has this headphones?
Plantronics BackBeat Pro 2

how is it after a while / few months of use?

I see the general complain is the Noise Cancelling is not that effective.
Please share your experience.

Hi,
I have been using this unit since Jan this year.
Let's call it PBP2 for short.

It was more than $200 cheaper than Bose QC 35 when I bought it.
The other 2 competitors will be Sony MDR-1000x and Sennheisser PXC 550; I only saw these 2 units around Mar or Apr but they were being retailed at around $550 and $590 respectively..

In term of Noise Cancelling, I will say it will lose out to the above 3 units. Sound wise, I will prefer the PB2 to that of Bose. if compares with PXC 550, PB2 might lose out abit in term of the mid-range; I had only tested the 1000x once.. so cant really make a good judgement call on its audio quality. But do note the PB2 can be abit boomy which some pple may not like it. At the end of the day, different pple have different taste or audio preference.

My playback device is either the Iphone 7+ or an ipad. Very happy with the audio quality and as for the Noise cancelling.... I will say it is ranked below the above 3 units but acceptable when used onboard an plane.... then again it is all about how much you are willing to spend on such gadget.

Just my 2 cts worth of comments.

Cheers !

Wow! Thanks for this. I'll now look for a unit I can test.
I already tried the qc 35 but the sound was a bit soft for me.

I found bnew PBP2 being sold in Bugis for 259, 319 for the SE version with 2 years warranty.

My main usage will be for mrt commute on my Samsung phone

Plantronics builds looks solid. I hope it does not have that headband issue like what Sony has.

Am looking forward to the Sony WF 1000x! Seems promising. Anyone else waiting for it?
