As someone with an above-average head size and ear size, I had to return these headphones as they were quite constrictive. Sound quality was decent for $100, even better for $80 I'm sure. Not a big fan of the white noise for NC, but probably just a personal preference. TU

I really appreciate the link, but I meant more info on the upcoming sale. I'm not finding anything online about them going to be $130 and it would help me in making some decisions if I had more information, like if that's a 100% sure thing they'll be that price and when that sale will start etc.

Sam's Club will have them for that price on their one-day sale tomorrow (Saturday), and Costco will have them for the same price but I don't remember the date.

How much does having something like LDAC/AptX/AAC really matter for audio(music)? Asking for an iPhone user, would that be a deal killer for this?
AAC vs aptx etc...
Iphones only support AAC (or just standard bluetooth audio). APTx and such is not supported. Is it a dealbreaker? probably not but if I was spending much more than I'd personally like to see AAC support.

I think I saw a review a while back comparing AAC and standard Bluetooth, AAC can do a better job of retaining high frequency audio content (above 14khz etc) so a good set of headphones/speakers could benefit from it. You could buy a headset with support for AAC but have speakers/electronics that otherwise won't do a good job reproducing the additional detail.


Bluetooth:
I see these are Bluetooth 4.0 as well, that should be fine. We're starting to see Bluetooth 5.0 devices but for headphones you won't gain much from that other than possible extended range. 5.0 is supposed to allow for lower power usage as well but that may not apply to devices that need to stream audio. Finally, there aren't any audio specific enhancements (yet at least) related to the new BT standard. AAC (which can be supported by all current Bluetooth standards) is probably the only thing that MAY give you a more full range audio signal.


What feature is essential?
A good return policy is probably the best feature :-)

I think these are good for the cost but sams club and costco will have sony wh900 on sale soon at $130 and they have better reviews.. these have good noise cancellation than the sony wh900 but the latter has better touch controls and feedback..
I got the Beats Solo3 from Target today for $130, is Sony better?

Got these headphones from Amazon on Primeday. I had a Bose 700 at the time as well. I paid 90$ for these and 400$ for the Bose. The Bose NC easily outclasses this, but the NC on 4.50 is a no slouch either. The Bose could bring down the noise level to 49dB in a room that was ~90dB (was running wall unit AC at full blast). The HD4.50 could bring down the noise to 52dB. I measured the noise using a quick and cheap method (mics on my earpods, measuring noise on an app on iPhone). The build feels cheaper than Bose and when I turn on the HD4.50 the voice that announces Power on/off made it sound like a cheap Chinese pair. I personally found the value/$ to be high on the HD4.50 and returned the Bose. Traveled to Hawaii and Asia with these and they did not need a recharge over the ~22 hour trip. They cut noise down well in an airplane and were decently comfortable.

As I said in the other thread, personally I'd avoid these. I found them to be super uncomfortable - the headband padding is near non-existent, the stock earpads have small openings, and the clamping force is high.

I tried swapping out earpads and adding more headband padding which helped slightly, but still had discomfort due to the clamping force, so I got rid of them and picked up a WH-H900N off eBay for $75 or so. Significantly more comfortable and better ANC to boot.

Do you or anyone know else know if the higher-end bluetooth codecs like LDAC and aptX HD are mainly useful just for lossless audio source like flac? Or would they also make a difference in better sound quality even for mp3 sources? From my Moto Z2 using VLC, I tried playing the same song from mp3 (320kbps) and flac files over LDAC to my bluetooth headphones (which support LDAC) and I could not hear a difference between them.

I own these and used them for a year before upgrading to the Sony 1000xm3. The noise canceling on the senheisers are very minimal but it's there. There are also very tight fitting and the ear cups are small so keep that in mind. If you have the extra money go for either the Sony or bose, otherwise this is a decent pair of entry level ANC headphones.

When I started looking into this a couple months back I didn't realize what a rabbit hole BT audio had become Smilie

May want to check the above website and maybe even reach out to them if you have specific questions as they seem to know what they're talking about.

Good luck!

The Sony 900 is very heavy. You better buy a new neck first

Btw, the difference I see with these and the ones posted yesterday is that these are all black. The other ones are black and red.
