any fatigue over long hours listening? some earphones do clamp a bit tightly onto the ears creating discomfort over time.
IMHO, this sony headset is comfortable to wear as compare to Beats Studio Wireless. I feel the Sony NC is better than Bose QC35. The NC of Bose QC35, I have a feel like listening under the water when there is no sound.

Thanks! while considering a headphone for the desktop proper, get this highly recommended one first.. it's going to be versatile for desktop use, travel and also for my wife when i need to sleep and she wants to continue the Dramas..

Does the Sony have that vacuum-like feel like the Bose have?

Well 480 without 1 year warranty( i suppose) is an offset of 50-80 dollars and buying locally let you do throughout check to give you a peace of mind ?
Thus I will go for local sets given those considerations

Update - went to Bangkok today with my mdr1000x.. and wow it is so much better than Monster Beats studio 2.0 wireless .. totally worth the price 👍🏿👍🏿
The comfort, clarity and stage sound is off the charts .. 🙀

Quick review from my 1st long haul flight. (13hrs)

1. Sound quality - personally, it's almost perfect!! Definitely better than Bose & the NC is much more natural with less "vacuum" effect. Luv it max!!

2. Comfort - to be very honest, I miss my Bose...for its light weight & the soft comfy cushion..especially after having the headphone >2hrs

I got my MDR-1000x from stereo thru their Qoo10 store, with the $100 coupon & 15% shop discount, it was a deal I couldn't reject..lol

Overall, still happy with my purchase so far, as for the comfort part, think most ppl won't feel it unless u're like me, like to zzz with my headphone during long haul flight...^_^

Anyone has tried sony LDAC technology with the MDR1000s? Would it be worth the investment? What is the cheapest available device with LDAC?

Yes, tried with Sony Walkman, most of the sony walkman will have the LDAC. Latest model A35.. think someone is selling.. previous model A25.. think Courts got promotion now. Sound quality wise, is still depend on your source music. sound sure better than normal BT, but can't really differential from through Aptx. But if using LDAC at 990kb.. prepare to get interference if you on the move.
