That is, until now.
With the introduction of the hi-res audio capable MDR-1000x, Sony has jockeyed into contention, knocking the Bose QC35 off their pedestal as the undisputed king. Certainly, the Bose QC35 are still a strong offering, with slightly superior noise cancelling and overall comfort in comparison to the Sony MDR-1000x, but the Sony cans’ superior sound quality, advanced features and controls, serious comfort, and competitive noise cancelling make them a better overall choice, if a slightly more expensive one.
In our video, we pit the Bose QC35 against the Sony MDR-1000x in a side-by-side battle, showing off some of the key differences, and discussing why Sony’s premium LDAC technology makes such a big difference in sound quality, whether used with or without noise cancelling, and whether wired or wireless.
