Audio headphones recommendations

Does anyone have a pair of noise cancellation headphones? The Bose Quiet Comfort 35 II are quite popular, but Amazon sells some cheap Cowin ones. But I have started to look at the Sony WH-1000mx3. I am pretty decided on the Sony ones, but it sounds like the WH-1000mx4 are coming soon. Just wondering if anyone had researched it or have some and what they would recommend?

What do you need those for?

Well just wanted a nice quality pair of headphones for use with gaming, and listen to music the way it's suppose to be listened to with nice sound quality. I have tried the Bose QC 35 II out on demo before and was blown away and the Sony's are suppose to be even better with NC and sound quality.

My journey into sound...

 

Alas I was once a wee student lost in the art of sound. I came upon a great master named @Davidc that taught me the way. So I originally started out looking for a pair of Bluetooth headphones, then i stepped up my price some, then I started watching Youtube videos and reviews. I really had my heart set on the Sony Wh-1000mx3s, but with the Sony Wh-1000mx4's coming out in a week (that they finally announced) I was going to wait. But then I kept reading and watching videos on the Nuralphones and just had to try them. They also released their Nuraloops just recently as well. They had a deal if you buy both you get a discount along with a discount code I found online it dropped it down. So I ordered them both.

 

First Impressions:

Prepare to be probed! No seriously they have these little probes that stick in your ear. Last night I switched to some smaller tips that made it more comfortable for me as well. You put them on. they make a good seal and the phone app runs you through a hearing test and customizes the sound just for your own hearing. With the latest G2 update that they came out with they added noise cancellation which is amazing. Better than the Bose I tried. Noise cancellation is no gimmick. The clarity is amazing as well. perfectly clear when a song plays. Even if you turn the audio down low, combined with the active noise cancellation everything is perfectly clear. It makes you want to listen to everything and breathes new life into your music. The bass is amazing, you can play with their immersion setting which makes you feel like you are on a concert floor. There is no on/off switch, you just pick them up and put them on and they turn on and when you take them off they go into sleep mode. I think the battery life is 20 hours. Charging to full is 3 hours. The Nuraloops are amazing as well, opened and tried them last night, went through the same setup. I can't believe the bass that can come out the them either, I did not expect that. There is plenty more to talk about with both about the haptic feedback buttons etc. But I'll let you watch Youtube videos if you want more information. So far I am pleased.

Odd looking contraptions. Over the ear earbuds. Being an audiophile is an expensive hobby, but then you'd be looking at super spendy wired headphones w/ equally or more expensive amps if going for pure sound quality from headphones

And that brings me to what came in the mail today...

Along with 2 sets of IEM headphones...? This thing is a beast and can drive top end headphones as well.

Well I was all set to return my Nuraphones, then I put them on last night to reset them (there is no one/off button) it know when you put them off/on. Then I thought I will listen one last time before resetting. Dam, I am still blown away for how good they sound, so I think I am just going to keep them now.

The audiophile buddy I mentioned previously had some FiiO stuff a while back. Pretty sure that was all ebay'ed off to pay for the newer bigger better stuff

There is some expensive stuff out there that's for sure. I see why people get addicted to it.

Well I received my new headphones today that everyone raves about the Koss Porta Pros. Now everyone online raves about these for the price. They are a throwback to the old 80's style. Since Amazon had them on sale for the Prime days, and they have been sitting in my cart for month I decided to try them out. They are way smaller than I expected, but they do fold up really neat, and for people that wear glasses like myself there is an indent that make them very comfortable. But lets talk about the sound, well everyone online was right. I don't think you could find a better sounding pair of headphones for this price, and I am blown away with the amount of base they produce though such a tiny pair of headphones. I originally had the intent of sending them back, but nope they are keepers for the price.
