I bought a pair, thanks, I love my current one and technically don't need a new one, but why not!

QC45=QC35II with transparency mode button, I wonder what else is better? I imagine they won’t have the punch of my wife’s Sony’s and will sound similar to my 700’s signature Bose, with the ultimate comfort of my kid’s QC35 (inherited from me). My older kid’s Beats in the top corner I do not recommend for sound quality. I think later on I’d like these, the older keeps stealing my 700’s, and the Sony’s are a bit fatiguing to me for long comfort listening.

If only I didn’t get uncomfortable wearing these types of headphones for more than half an hour (sweating / warmer ears). The QC35 was great, hopefully this will improve in sound quality and the microphone background noise cancellation (that was my second issue, everyone could hear my background very clearly).

Got a refurbished 35-I 2-3 years ago, using them daily for remote working. Will absolutely purchase another pair when those are done. It really worth the price of admission, moreover if you don't mind getting a refurbished unit for half the price.

Bose claims the QC45 has the improved mid-range cancellation over the QC35, so hopefully it regains its title as having the best ANC implementation.

Thanks for sharing. Been rather disappointed with the build quality of the NC 700 so may just pick these up once the MKBHD review is out.

Love my QC35s I got refurbed, used them daily for work Teams calls.

Tempted to get these with a PSP discount, since I know I will use them a lot.

But I think bluetooth audio on windows just doesn't allow any better audio quality. Whenever using a headset on windows for both transmitting and receiving, the audio quality is terrible due to the ancient windows bluetooth protocols. Pretty sure these won't improve this, even if they are bluetooth 5.1.

More info:

Even though have bluetooth 5 on my PC, yet windows still doesn't use it to transmit high quality mic and sound at the same time [tried with several bluetooth 5 headsets].

Good deal for a headset that just came out, better order soon as Source usually does not allow Bose products for PSP. Can't believe they are cheaper than the Bose 700 :lol:

Looks like Source already removed it off PSP. Wow, faster than i thought:

I believe this happened before with QC35 (that's how I got mine when they came out) but it slipped my mind that they fixed the PSP applying to pre-orders within days.

We can always try again with QC-55 or when the 800 comes out :lol:

FYI, I had pre-ordered this from The Source back in Sept 1, and I have yet to get this order...Pretty certain I was pretty early to pre-order, not sure if they EVER got any stock.

Talking to their customer reps on the phone, and am being told that it now may get cancelled. No sorries, no comp, nothing, sigh.

Anybody ever got their orders from QuietComfort 45 from The Source?
