noise-cancelling review and headphones comparison of bose quietcomfort 15 and sennheiser 310 bt

 

Consumers looking for a high-performance pair of on- or over-ear noise-canceling headphones in the $300 price range should consider the Bose QuietComfort 15 and the Sennheiser PXC 310BT. Known for sound quality and noise reduction, both of these headphones omit phone controls, instead emphasizing sound quality and comfort.

Key Similarities

  • Price (roughly)
  • Strong Brand Reputations for Audio Quality
  • In-ear Noise Reduction electronics

 

Key Differences

  • Styling (over-ear, on-ear)
  • Battery (type & endurance)
  • Sennheiser works with noise-reduction off
  • Sennheiser is wireless, sporting Bluetooth connectivity
  • Bose comes with ½ ft. longer cable (55-inch verse 49-inch)
  • Sennheiser: Much smaller, more portable (4.2 oz. verse 7.4 oz)
  • Different Sensitivities
  • Bose better overall sound quality

    Hi Peter,Funny you should mtienon the Sennheiser HD 650. I absolutely LOVE them. I haven't bought them yet, but the minute I get the spare change to fork over for them, I will!To tell you the truth, I do like them better than Bose (and that's saying a lot since I'm a big fan of Bose) but the 650 s cost about $150 more than the Bose and I am a strict believer in the law of diminishing returns. So, for the incremental benefit to sound quality you have to pay a lot more money. Personally, for me it's not worth it but my headphones aren't for work or anything just for personal use.

    I use them (audio-technica quiet point) when I work at coffeeshops. When you put them on, you can aclulaty hear the noise recede with a hiss. It is surprising. However, it works to filter out concussive, deep noises and background roar the best. The odd result is that voices aclulaty become clearer in the coffesshop. That's fine when I'm in a conversation but I'd like phones that block out all levels of noise, as in, complete, monastic silence. That would be productive.
