Seems to be about the lowest it's been since I purchased my set about a year ago.

Very pleased with my set and couldn't be happier. Noise cancellation is very good but I have not owned the top of the line Sony or Bose sets for comparison. My comparison point is with the $100 or less sets to include the corwin model from Amazon and the Plantronics set.

Any idea how these would do for wireless PC gaming? Thinking about picking something up to replace my old wired Sennheiser PC 360 set.

Thanks OP! I had a boss who was a huge Sennheiser fan that let me borrow his PXC 550s for coding. After leaving that job I've wanted a set of my own. Finally pulled the trigger on a set. Will come in handy for my international travel for vacation!

The next version are coming out in October. The reviews themselves have been pretty lackluster so I'm wonder if it won't be that big of a difference in quality. Don't think the new ones at $350 will be $150 better in quality so I'm probably pulling the trigger on these for coding. I've tested the Sony and Bose so we'll see how they stack up

I've been using this since Christmas 2017. It works well and the touch pad on the right ear muff lets you control volume and skip or repeat songs without pulling out your phone. It also has a few other touch features that I don't use.

There's also an equalizer that you can customize through your an app.

Battery life is pretty good and I only have to charge it once a week or every couple of weeks.

They are very comfortable to wear, not heavy with very soft leather and plush padding.

Are these worth $70 more to return my Audio-Technica ATH-M50xBTs for?

if memory serves the headset changes audio channel/quality when using mic, so it's not ideal for VOIP gaming

I had these and used them to commute and for conference calls. I have used all the headphones out there as daily drivers except for the QC35. The mic on the Senns is probably the best out there, the sound once tuned using the app is very good. The noise-canceling is good but not near that of the Sonys or Bose and would even rank the Surface just above these. I would save your money and get the renewed version for less. The touch controls on the Senns, Sony and Surface is a great feature and one that I can't live without. Senns, in my opinion, have the best touch controls out of all of them and most intuitive.
From my experience, the noise-canceling ranked would be
Sony
Bose
Microsoft
Senn
Panasonic
than a large drop off
Ankers and Soundcore and the rest of the cheap ones.

Mic performance
Senns
Panasonic
Surface
Sony
Bose

Sound
They are all subjective and configurable based on the app. I do believe having a tunable app is very important as many out of the box sound muddy.

Touch Controls
Senns
Sony
Microsoft
Bose and Panasonic

Sorry for the long post, I take the train every day and just recently sold my Senns and I'm going back to the Sony. I have the Surface right now but will be returning them and for a few dollars more you might as well get the Sony. Only pay the premium if sound canceling is your number one priority.

There are so many detailed reviews already written, it's best to head to YouTube or Google and just search.

Still overpriced considering you can get QC35 for just 30 bucks more.

Bose bit these are different, these are RF not BLE so less lag. Good for watching TV.
