I own these and would NOT recommend version 1. I had no problem with this product for over a year. Comfort is nice and noise cancelling was great, but bose has a recurring problem with updates messing up the ANC and I have yet to get mine fixed and will probably never. The newer updates causes white noise and ANC is crap and there was a way to rollback to older firmwares before that would fix it, but bose decided to remove the downgrades to previous two firmwares only which does not fix the cause.

The only way I would recommend this is if you don't update the firmware when you receive the product...but you might as well get the QC35 II. you could check the bose forum where many people with QC 35 I who have the same problem.

I've owned version 1 for over two years and have updated to multiple new firmware versions along the way and am running the newest firmware currently and have no issues...it's either a hit or miss issue with a very small number of QC35 1 batches or a user error/user abuse/wear and tear of the ear pads which created the problems. Bose even had users send them in that were complaining and most tested just fine, the issue being with a very small percentage of these and related to not taking good care of the headphones is not worth a recommendation of not buying these amazing headphones at a great price point...btw I'm not affiliated with Bose in any way and have no attachment to this post just an unbiased statement of the researched facts.

For anyone wondering about these against the Sony 1000XM2 the QC35's are more comfortable but the 1000XM2's have better audio (barely) and noise cancellation (much better). I recommend trying on a pair of each at a Best Buy and just seeing which you prefer.

Isn't there a warranty problem if you buy from Rakuten's merchant?

Are you sure about noise cancelation on Sony? I just moved to Bose and it's better on flights. Let's say better baby noise cancelation three rows down on trans Atlantic flights

Agreed, yet I would add deeper sounding base, better bluetooth connection, range, and warranty with Sony as well.

I tossed and turned over this decision for months. I tried them out at BB as well. The Boses were definitely more comfortable, and most reviews talk about the Sonys getting warm/hot around the ears at the hour mark. I do like watching movies etc and this is an issue.

Additionally, the Sonys have long been plagued with the headband snapping. The v2 is supposed to be better, but it seems they haven't fully fixed the issue yet.

I had read about the NC being about the same - I wasn't aware that the Sonys were miles better?

I thought so too, but then read that you can customize the button for other purposes e.g. varying the level of NC (a common issue vs the Sonys).
