H2H ROUND-2: Sound Quality

H2H USER SCORE
View Official Scorecard

In the $300 price range, sound quality expectations are quite high for both of these headphones. The performance of both pairs is strong, though the sound from Bose QuietComfort 15 headphones is a bit more textured overall. The Bose QC15s carry deeper bass and more treble extension, though muddy mid tones. Sennheiser’s sound comparably lacks bass texture and produces minimal treble depth.

Sensitivity wise, the Bose QuietComfort 15 headphones generate a stronger, more consistent sound at very low volumes, while the Sennheiser 310BT headphones place more emphasis on its medium sensitivities.

H2H Performance Snapshot:


Bose QuietComfort 15

  • Bass: strong depth, definition
  • Mids: smooth but slightly muddy
  • Treble: recessed, limited extension

     

Sennheiser PXC 310BT

  • Bass: lacks shape, limited texture
  • Mids: soft, with less definition
  • Treble: limited extension

    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.
