Today we’re going to be looking at some of the most popular $400 ANC headphones out there right now. We’ve got the Bose NC 700’s, the Sennheiser Momentum 3’s, and the Bowers and Wilkins PX7. All three of the headphones are very different from one another, and depending on your needs is one going to be better than the other. So let's see which ones right for you.
The new Bowers and Wilkins PX7’s are a refined version of the Bowers and Wilkins PX… B and W’s first pair of ANC headphones. And just like before, I think these headphones sound great and over all I really like their build quality. But when it comes to everything else like active noise cancelation and fit… these headphones still need some work. Now im not saying that you shouldn’t get these headphones period. I just don’t think these headphones are for everyone. But they will make a very specific type of person very happy.
The new skullcandy Crusher ANC are just a whole lot of fun. And if you’re considering getting these headphones you’re mainly concerned about their bass cause it truly is insane. But due to their price point and new features… a lot of people want to know how these headphones compare to the Sony 1000XM3 and Bose NC 700. Specifically their active noise cancellation.
If you’re a bass head you have two great options to choose from right now. Theres the Brand new Skullcandy Crusher ANC’s which have better performance and more features than the Skullcandy Crusher 360’s and there’s also the Sony XB900N which are just overall a great pair of Mid Range ANC headphones that also happen to have a lot of bass. You can’t go wrong with either one of these, but depending on your needs one is better than the other.
The new Skullcandy Crusher ANC’s are perhaps the most fun headphones ever… and I think that if you have last year’s Crusher 360’s I do think its worth upgrading. But even though the Crusher ANC’s are more versatile than the Crusher 360’s, they do have their quirks. Quirks that just aren’t acceptable for a pair of $320 ANC headphones.
The new sennheiser momentum 3 have been packed with a whole bunch of new features to help them stay competitive in todays super competitive ANC headphone market. Although I do enjoy these headphones, they aren’t for everyone. But today we’re going to see how the Sennheiser Momentum 3’s stack up to today’s big boys, the Sony 1000XM3’s and the Bose NC 700’s… cause there are somethings about the momentum 3’s that I prefer over these other headphones.
The new Sennheiser Momentum 3’s have been packed with a whole bunch of new features to help them stay competitive with some of the most popular ANC headphones out there right now. And personally I really like how these headphones sound and I really like their build quality. These headphones do have some quirks, but they also have some very unique features to them that may appeal to Android user audiophiles that just refuse to give up their audio jacks… especially for those who may have just upgraded to the note 10.
Sony has a very robust headphone line up. And personally I think that as of early September 2019 the Sony 1000XM3’s are best premium ANC headphones on the market and I also think the Sony XB900N’s are the best Mid tier ANC headphones on the market. But today we’re going to be comparing the Sony XB700’s to the Sony WH-CH700N.
