I have the Sony’s and I find the sound on Bose too flat for the music I listen to.

The top of the band looks a little funny with that U shape but other than that they look great! excited to try them out when available

700 if you have use on any calls or have larger or pointy ears. The ear cups are shaped better and more comfortable. Sony otherwise. Both great sets overall. Have used both.

I really like my Sony’s and didn’t feel like I would get any more value in the Bose for the price difference.

I have bose 700s and they're ok. I don't see what the hype is all about. I bet the Sony ones are fine too. If sony ones are cheaper just get those.

Sony’s are excellent

I just got the QuietComfort2 from Bose. The 700s didn’t seem like they were enough of a move forward to justify the price difference They are comfortable and the noise cancelling is pretty good - but as others have said, the music sounds kind of flat

I’m with you on the sound. A friend has the Sony’s and that are markedly better for audio quality at the same price point roughly.

I've tried both and I think it comes down to what you value in your sound. Sonys are definitely better at bass. It makes everything sound very exciting, so for movies/video games, I'd go with these. Bose on the other hand, is more balanced, so if you're using them mostly for music, they might be the better choice.

Discussion post: I feel almost all consulting firms are the same. Mbb, big 4 etc. if you are paid enough there is probably less wlb. If there is good wlb there is not much money.
