Honestly - with the QC35 refurbs for <200, its a no brainer to spend a bit more, just for the comfort.peakingduck wrote: ↑ I know we don't have a time machine but these were $75 at London drugs when it was 50% off certain electronics on Cyber Monday.
I had these headphones before getting a pair of QC35. Pretty good set of headphones if you can't shell out the cash for QC35/Sony X3's. The noise cancelling isn't up to par but the sound quality is really good.
They are a little uncomfortable and you can't wear them for long hours. If you have big ears or wear glasses might be a no go.

Never used the H10's but if you want them for flights do yourself a favour and get the Bose QC35 refirbs for $190. I know its a bit more money, but man those are super comfortable and amazing on flights. I can fall asleep wearing them on 9 hour flights and wake up with no ear pain/uncomfort.

Im gonna sound like a shill - but my qc35s have lasted longer than ANY pair of headphones i've had - at almost 4 years. I wear them when studying, and during finals sometimes like 12 hours a day. When you think about how much longer you can wear them for, the cost per hour is a LOT lower for a higher degree of comfort and superior ANC.Ecsta wrote: ↑ Never used the H10's but if you want them for flights do yourself a favour and get the Bose QC35 refirbs for $190.

I bought these Plantronics for my dad to use and i played around with them and audio quality is great and they have tons of settings, but not at good ANC as the Bose (especially for droning noises where the Bose is king).

You can buy ear cups on Ebay.major153 wrote: ↑ I got these a year ago. They're pretty decent in sound quality, noise cancelling is fair.
My only two complaints are
1) the extension cable is for sound only, no mic input such as with Bose. So if power dies, you can't use them for calls.
2) the ear cup is soft and comfortable but they shredded apart in about 1.5 years. I raised it with Plantronics, they told me that's expected wear and tear. Little bit disappointed with the build quality and customer service.
Any suggestions on repairing the ear cups? I have older cheaper gaming headset that held up better than the BackBeat PRO 2?

I agree, although a limited few (comparatively speaking) have a Bose store locally that allowed such a deal.PilotInTraining wrote: ↑ Honestly - with the QC35 refurbs for <200, its a no brainer to spend a bit more, just for the comfort.

Unless u wanna go wired, I wouldn't write these BBpros so quick. Sure, these are def not the last word in resolution high definition & will lose out to the Sony XM2/3 (&or equivalent) but thats only if your upstream components are equivalent as well includ. high(er) bitrate material. Being an owner of the Sonys & these BBpros (both v1&2), I'd say its better to get these BBs for low bitrate YT/Spotify streams.
