[Best Buy] Sennheiser MOMENTUM 2 Over-Ear Headphones $260

I was thinking about the Bose QC35 from the Bose outlet but I want to be able to easily turn off the noise cancelling.

Edit: Sold and shipped by Best Buy and don't forget Rakuten cash back.
Edit 2: Noise cancellation is always active when they are on, in case someone is looking for a set where NC can be turned off.

wow this is a very good deal on one of the better BT full size cans. not as good as the bose nor sony for ANC but def in the game as for as SQ.

that said, this means it's likely V3 is coming soon

The 3rd one is out already. Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Cold Sweat New one looks chunkier.

lols is that what it is! shows how much I'm out of the totl bt stuff. I'm betting the V3 is much closer to the $400-500 mark though.

fwiw, these days I'm rockin a cheap on neck Umidigi Ubeats for $29 & while not moving about, a Senn PX100 II also @$30 on clearance at my local chapters. kinda done spending large on highend BT cans.

Yep. I went to Best Buy to hear what the 2s sounded like. The display were 3s but the shelves had 2s. Could be confusing for people who aren't familiar with the 2 models. Just for the fun of it, I paired some of the different headphones (top Bose and Sony) with my cellphone and gave a listen. It certainly didn't sound quite as nice as their plugged in demos.

Just an fyi, QC35 II feature a Google Assistant/alexa physical button that can be programmed using the app to modify (or turn off) the NC.

I did some AB testing with these and the Sony's for audio quality (ANC wasn't a big selling point for me) and these were noticeably better IMO.

Out of the box, the sonys have bass that may need to be eqed a couple of notches down before they start sounding decent.

That would exasperate my biggest issue with the Sony's, namely they struggled a bit with bass bleed with heavily distorted music. Either way, if ANC is not a chief focus, I think the Sennheiser's are just better.

I’ve had a pair of these for years, would like to point out that they also come with a 3.5mm cable and you’re also able to use these via USB connection as well. ANC isn’t as good as the other two but that it still does an awesome with ambient and plane noises.

They also work wirelessly while charging, which I find is a rarity for BT headphones.

PXC550 is their best offer, I use it when I need hardcore audio quality otherwise Sony XM3 (900 is similar but ANC is not top) is for easy listening mostly.

Haven't use the 900s but I thought the M2s sounded better than the 1000s FWIW. Pretty sure they're just trying to clear out old stock at this point, which is why they're so cheap.

Agreed on the sound quality, also checked out the Sennheiser PXc550 and the Sonys - for pure sound quality, I kept the Senns and got rid of the Sonys.

Wait for BF. These are junk BT 4.0. New ones are BT 5
Codecs also suck no AptX, which the 900Ns have btw.

None of those are significant reasons not to buy a pair of headphones, especially when there is no way the new version will be anywhere near this price on BF.
