Get these they sound much better and cost less.

However if you insist on getting beats get these:

u/SergeantStuck · 7 pointsr/Tipper

I've been using Beyerdynamics DT 770 Pro 80 ohm paired with a Fiio E10k DAC and the sound quality is incredible. You'd be under budget with this setup too and the E10k also has a bass boost switch if that's your thing ;)

That's more of a desktop setup, though my phone does drive the 770s pretty well. If you're looking for headphones for on the go listening, I'd recommend Sony's WH1000XM3, they're the best noise cancelling headphones I've ever owned.

u/chrisisthefish · 6 pointsr/GalaxyS9

You mention not wanting the ear bud type; I assume you also mean the in-ear ones? I have these TaoTronics branded ones which have a great bang for your buck and are comfortable.

On completely the other end of the spectrum, I recently got the Sony WH1000XM3 noise canceling over the ear headphones which are excellent. Super comfortable, great sound, and I like them better than the Bose QC35, though they are a lot of money.

u/I_may_be_at_work · 6 pointsr/sysadmin

I have these and they are pretty amazing. I tried the Bose QC35s as well, but they weren't as customizable.

A new version just came out and look pretty good.

u/SupaZT · 4 pointsr/LosAngeles

> The key to public transport is noise cancelling headphones.

And if you're wondering which ones to get....

u/jerseyguy195 · 3 pointsr/churning

These headphones have been a great purchase imo. The difference between noise cancelling on/off is night and day when testing on a plane. They're comfortable, lightweight-ish, and have excellent battery life. The bluetooth is quick to connect and they even include not only a hard shell carrying case but a 3.5mm cable to connect to device without bluetooth or nfc.

u/rwalle · 3 pointsr/Purdue

I am not kidding. If you know someone who has a pair, borrow it and try it on.

u/bananagrammick · 3 pointsr/Android

While I agree, they have had some good deals on them so far. The $500 off with a Samsung trade-in was probably my best chance but I'm pretty patient. I think there will be chances to own these phones for a decent amount less.

Second, the cost of flagships just seems to be creeping up. I don't think the OnePlus 6T will be $1000 or anywhere close but the more major players: Apple, Google, LG, and Samsung aren't far off.

Lastly, and by far the most important point for me. The cost of a phone with a headphone jack is Far cheaper than replacing my 3.5mm devices. I have a lot tied up in headphones and (c)IEMs, a couple sound suppression systems with only 3.5mm, and one car with an aux cable and no Bluetooth. The other side of Bluetooth headphones is the battery is going to wear out; something like the Sony WH-1000X is going to add significant cost if they have to be replaced every 3-5 years.

I realize very much that's not the position that everyone is in just the position I am in.

u/alinroc · 3 pointsr/cscareerquestions

> too lazy to Google the model name

Oh come on, WH1000XM3 is just so easy to remember and rolls off the tongue.

u/Bobby_Marks2 · 3 pointsr/Parenting

As someone intimately aware alcoholism and bipolar in parents and roommates - don't live with your mom.

Babies suck. Newborns shit at least a dozen times a day, only sleep for like 2-3 hours at a time at best, and cry because it's the only way they can communicate. It sucks. As a stay-at-home dad who raised two of them, I have a theory that all parents eventually abandon dealing with the poop smell, because we've grown so accustomed that we just don't smell it.

My solution to noise, for parents or anyone else in the house, is noise cancelling headphones and soft music. They start at about $30 on Amazon, and between noise-cancelling and listening to soft music through them, you will hardly hear the baby cry. Even regular headphones can do the trick, if they are the bulky around-the-ears type. And if you can pull together a couple hundred bucks, something like these headphones will change your life in more ways than one.

Alternatively, if you are looking to sleep and can't do that with headphones, you could look into soundproofing your room or building a box around the head of your bed. These are what you would use, although you'd definitely want to cover them with a cheap fabric of some kind as fiberglass is not fun to breathe or touch (Walmart is great for that, or you can use old towels/blankets). It's not a solution for everyone, but as someone who built an isolation room for sound recording I can say it works really well.

I know money is hard to come by at that age, and I know these solutions aren't perfect. I'm sorry babies suck.

u/A62Okay · 2 pointsr/EDC

How do you like the WH1000's? Worth the $$?

u/DarkRomanticism · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Depending on how much you're willing to spend on headphones... These are amazing. I've never put on headphones so mind bogglingly noise cancelling in my life. Don't know if they qualify as sleek, but listening to music on them is incredible.

u/MaestroCleansing · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Duh, I forgot about that somehow.

Not sure of any wireless NC headphones with replacable batteries, honestly. The Bose QuietComfort 25 is a wired set and takes AAAs, which gives you close to 10 hours of use.

If you wanted to go the long-lifespan but non replacable route, the Sony WH-1000xm3 is a pretty decent (imo) Wireless NC set of headphones (around $349). Bose QC35 has Micro-Usb, so that's probably a no-go.

Amazon US link: Sony WH-1000xm3

I'm honestly not sure if anything exists right now with replacable batteries, noise cancelling, and USB-C for charging. Sure Samsung's Galaxy Buds technically have a replacable battery, but what about the noise cancelling?

It might be 2 or 3 years before this BIFL-grade item is finally released.

u/Kingfisher_ybw · 2 pointsr/belgium

Bose QC35 s have been the reference for a long while. But now I see more Sony's on the plane

I bought the predecessor XM2 when the XM3 came out, with a hefty discount, and I am super happy about them.

Before I had the AKG N60. Loved the sound. But they are on-ears, rather than over over-ears, so less noise cancelling, but more comfort and more compact. The sound was good (better than the Sony imho), but less happy with the build quality as the foam pad (simili) leather became undone. They've now updated them, so I assume they dealt with that issue?

Source: 6 flights a month. You never realised what a godsend noise cancelling is, until you see your neighbor with his hands over you ears, switch off the noise cancelling and find out there's a kid wailing in the seat in front.

u/billbishere · 2 pointsr/HeadphoneAdvice

sure.. no problem man. The 1000xm3 just came out it was 1000xm2 before that. You can probably pick up the xm2s for 300 maybe even 250. But for me the xm3 $50 premium is worth the difference for the new tech.

I used my fancy pants Sony wh1000mx3’s and it sounded pretty good. I figured the noise canceling would help the immersion...

Then I tried my cheap-o ear buds I use for my Nintendo Switch.

I prefer the $8 earbuds. Lol.

u/kmcdow · 2 pointsr/indieheads

I'm really enjoying my Sony headphones. BT, wireless, noise canceling for $350. They actually just released the newest model which has USB-C charging rather than micro USB, which is a great improvement.


u/Joe8222 · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I have this trond bluetooth adapter and the sony wh-1000xm3 and I don't have any audio delay and its perfect.

u/UnobtrusiveHippo · 2 pointsr/hsp

These headphones were a game changer for me: Sony Noise Cancelling Headphones WH1000XM3:

They are pricey but the second I put them on I knew it was worth it. Also great for traveling on planes and such.

They do really well at blocking out even most voices, especially if you have some music playing.

You could see if your company will buy you some but my guess is they will try to get away with something cheaper and/or it will take 2 months to process the request.

u/Schwibbles · 2 pointsr/headphones

What about XM3s at $298? Or the white version for $270.The XM3s are almost always on sale for $298 at this point. EDIT: At those prices I'd go XM3 over the QC35 II every time.

Unless you're not in the USA of course. I can't help you there.

u/anarchos · 1 pointr/sony

Shucks, you just missed out on a small sale on amazon canada! They were down to $402 (looks like only for ~1.5 days). Mine were delivered yesterday! Check out, you can paste in an amazon link and see the price history as well as set alerts for sales.

u/hotshot396 · 1 pointr/amazon

I've ordered the Sony WH1000XM3 and Amazon says they are temporarily out of stock. How long does this mean I have to wait? Have others experienced the same thing with these headphones? I think they are pretty new so that probably why they ran out. Here is the link:

u/SlipperyJim211 · 1 pointr/iphone

I have a pair of Sony WH-CH700N headphones which I picked up during Prime Day for $100. Their noise-cancellation is just decent, not stellar, but they're also much cheaper than Sony's flagship model. The sound is great, I have a full volume range, and the battery life is outstanding.

u/biggumsmcdee · 1 pointr/misophonia

Explain the issue to your boss and see if you can expense these:


If they say no, just buy some. its worth it.


Edit: Just read your other post, these are blue tooth and have a mic/ connect to phone. If they don't work with your work phone system, find some that do.

u/KentAllard002 · 1 pointr/NoStupidQuestions

Not beats, but a good deal for a good headset.

u/MJDTA · 1 pointr/bapcsalescanada

I want the Sony WH1000XM3 headphones. They're on for $350 right now on amazon. Do I pull the trigger? How much do they normally go on sale for? I haven't really followed them much before right now so not sure the typical sale price.

Edit: Looks like they're $350 on Sony's site and at Best Buy.

u/syneofeternity · 1 pointr/HeadphoneAdvice

My buddy is talking to me about them and said that the Sennheiser is good for vocals. Mid and high range frequency. Is that good for gaming / music?

Between the Beyerdynamic 770, 990, 598 Cs, 599 SE, which one would you choose?

I can also get these

u/crispyfrybits · 1 pointr/bapcsalescanada

If you can stretch it a bit further the Sony WH1000XM3 are on sale for $350 in most places this BF. I got this for myself a few days ago at this price, specifically for the noise cancelling, and they have become my main driver. They have bluetooth built in and tend to sound a touch warmer with some extra bass compared to something like Bose who is more neutral.

u/AeroRespawn · 1 pointr/blackfriday

Stupid question but I need to make sure that this and this are the same items being sold new, just that one of them has a free power bank bundled with them?

u/DairToBe · 1 pointr/headphones

If you look at the Product Detail Page ( ) for the XM3 on Amazon, you get lots of matches:

  • Qn1 Processor
  • Smart Listening
  • Sense Engine
  • 30 Hours Battery Life
  • Bluetooth NFC
  • Carrying Case

    The second product image is even the same.

    Congrats on the XM3's ;)
u/SmiteIke · 1 pointr/ToolBand

I bought a pair of Audio Technica ATH-M50xyears ago and still love them. I think they’re a great starting point for people who want to get into higher end headphones without breaking the bank (~$140) and want something you can just plug into your computer/phone headphone jack and get reasonably good sound.

I think the real sweet spot for price/performance starts at $400-$500. Audio quality is determined by the weakest link in your audio chain e.g. you can have a really nice pair of headphones that don’t end up sounding that great because your laptop or phone has a low quality DAC/headphone amp.

What I bought/recommend after spending dozens of hours doing research on /r/headphones and /r/audiophile is:

Schiit Modi 3 ($99) - This is the Digital Analog Converter or DAC. This converts digital music stored as 1s and 0s into an analog sound wave we can hear.

Schiit Magni 3 ($99) - This is a headphone amp that takes the analog sound wave from the DAC and amplifies it to your desired volume.

Sennheiser HD6xx ($220) - These are a stunningly good deal for headphones. They are a version of Sennheisers legendary HD600/HD650 series of studio monitors made in partnership with MassDrop for $120 less than a regular pair of HD650s on Amazon.

This is a really respectible setup for $420. All the components are very popular entry-level audiophile components and I’m sure there are thousands of people with this exact setup.

It’s important to note that this is not a portable setup at all and has to be plugged into a wall to work. This doesnt do much good if you do most of your listening on the go while traveling/commuting. I think you the Sony WH-1000MX3you said you tried are the best bang for your buck if you want wireless headphones to use with your phone on the go. I do not own these (yet) but plan to buy them next time I have a long flight, and I think they are currently the best noise-cancelling headphones on the market.

There are lots of good options out there, although I’d avoid the trendy brands like Bose and especially Beats.

u/TheProfessorMaddux · 1 pointr/barstoolsports

I bought the Sony WH1000XM3 before my flight to Thailand and it was 100% worth the money. Comparable with the Bose Quiet Comfort, don't think you can go wrong with either.

u/drakthorian0294 · 1 pointr/HeadphoneAdvice

Your best bet would be Sennheiser PXC550(250$ and can be folded up if neccesary) or Sony wh-1000M3(350$ but has the best sound quality of the noise cancelling headphones on the market in that price range. They aren't as portable though)

u/flumeremix · 1 pointr/HeadphoneAdvice

Sounds like the Beats left a dry taste in your mouth.

If your looking at the 350$ price range why not go for the Sony WH1000XM3.

If you can get a good deal on them they are better sounding def last you longer.

u/pseudodit · 1 pointr/autism

It depends how he obliterated them ... rough on them/cheap quality, or a bit of both.

My approach would be to get him some comfy earmuffs, and get yourself some really nice noise cancelling headphones.

Then let him start using your headphones, if he can demonstrate he can take care of them. As time goes by he will use them more and more, while you technically maintain ownership.

Sneaky ... absolutely. It will also reduce the risk of him of damaging it/wear as you can recall them when he doesn't really need it or is playing up.

Unfortunately unless you want to pay big money for a top performer (e.g. Sony XM3s ) then you really need to try them on, as the comfort level / performance varies wildly.

u/stonecats · 1 pointr/headphones

has anyone seen a noname/offbrand near equivalent to
Sony WH1000XM3
my kid wants one, we can't afford it, yadda yadda yadda.
my budget incl tax&ship is $100 (not $300 sony cost)

u/ElegantBiscuit · 1 pointr/unpopularopinion

Even though beats is owned by Apple, I still don't like them and Ill probably never buy them. I highly recommend the ones I mentioned in my post (Amazon link), but the new Bose ones are just as good, and Ive heard good things about the Microsoft equivalent. Ive seen reviews of people literally twisting the headphones out and pulling the headband straight. Ive had no problems other than in weather below 32F, but turning them off an on again fixes it. Amazon has a good return policy so I really recommend you at least try them out, or in store at a Best Buy.

u/BenLReddit · 1 pointr/HeadphoneAdvice

I love Sony headphones, they work really well and sound great. My brother owns a pair of hyperx cloud headphones and prefer to play games with the Sony headphones over his hyperx. If you want to spend a bit (300$) more get the WH1000XM3:

I absolutely love these and I sort of fell in love with noise canceling after I got them! They are very versatile (this is the best selling point imo) and sound quality is really good. I haven't had a problem with the fit/feel but it might be a change from you're hyprex. It is also great to have if you travel and don't want to listen to train/plane noises. It even cuts the AC to more or less nothing.

People also like this slightly cheaper (200$) model, but I have no personal experience with it:

u/Kierou · 1 pointr/dubai

built-in amps options

  • skullcandy crushers for almost 2yrs now. the listening experience is crazy because of the built-in amp w/bass slider, great battery life as well. great for gym and entertainment. biggest downsides are; they break easily, get uncomf after a while. it gets even more insane with an external amp

  • qc35s is good for flights, noise cancelling removes that annoying engine noise, great sound quality as well and very flexible as well. around 20hr playtime but charges fast.

  • sony cheaper alternative to qc

    other mentions (didn't try them, but was rec)

  • 630vb

  • [sonywh] (

    some other decent options that work better with an amp

  • beyerdynamic nice sound

    overall i recommend qc35, clear sound, wireless and nice noise cancelling option.


    >Also came across earstudio es100 could be the "fine balance"

    seems like a really good option, decent price.
u/NateY3K · 1 pointr/mildlyinfuriating

I thoroughly enjoy them. Recently I was on an 8 hour flight and these had great noise cancellation and didn’t feel tight around my ears. Highly recommend. There’s a few tech channels that have reviewed the headphones.

That wasn't my point, I meant that good audio is expensive. For example: these bluetooth wireless headphones
