Personally I think sony is killing it right now when it comes to their ANC headphones. Its been almost a year and the 1000XM3’s are still my favorite and most recommended pair of Premium ANC Headphones. And it looks like Sony is on track to dominate the mid range ANC headphones space with their New XB900N’s. So if you’re thinking about pick up a pair of sony headphones, here are the key differences between the 1000XM3’s and XB900N’s.
Over the last few months, the Sony 1000XM3 have been the go to ANC headphones for most people. Now the Bose QC35’s are still a decent pair of headphones because of their superior build quality and comfort over the 1000XM3’s… But over all the 1000XM3’s still came out on top because of their added features and better performance. But now, we have the all new Bose NC 700’s… Let's see if Bose is able to reclaim their crown from Sony.
The New Sony XB900N’s are an exciting pair of headphones cause they’re Sony’s newest mid range ANC headphones that have essentially combined the XB950N1’s and the H.ear On 2’s into one. Obviously Sony is holding these headphones back a little bit so that they don’t eat into their 1000XM3’s or 1000XM4’s sales but given their price point and performance I really like these headphones.
The new Bose noise canceling headphones 700’s aka the NC 700’s are finally here. Now even though there is a lot of hype around these headphones they aren’t replacing the Bose QC35’s… they’re more of a higher tier variant. Now over all these are a decent pair of ANC headphones, but there are somethings I would have done differently.
Since summer’s here, a lot of people might be looking into getting a speaker. But if you’re looking into getting a speaker to mainly use at your next cook out or entertain guests with… then you’ll probably be better off with a 360 degree speaker cause you’ll be able to blanket to a large area with music with out having to blast the volume. So today we’re going to look at 3 of my favorite multi-directional speakers. Theres the brand new Marshall Stockwell 2, the UE Megaboom 3, and the JBL Pulse 3.
At first glance, the new Wonderboom 2 doesn't look all that different from the original Wonderboom... But if you look a little closer, you'll see that Ultimate ears has refined and improved their compact and ultra portable Bluetooth speaker in all the right places.
Marshall’s new Stockwell 2 speaker is all new for Summer 2019… but this isn’t just a slight hardware refresh from the original Stockwell. The Stockwell 2 is now a multi directional speaker that shoots out your music out the front and out the back of the speaker. Making this speaker a great option if you’re someone who likes to entertain a lot of guests on a regular.
Bose just announced their new Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700, the successor to the Bose QC35 Series II. Here are my initial thoughts of the new Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 and are they going to be able to over take the Sony 1000XM3's? Also bose gave us a first look at their new truly wireless earbuds the Bose Earbuds 500 and Bose Noise Cancelling Earbuds 700.
