Update: After sending the broken headphones back, Amazon refused to replace with another pair and refunded the purchase price. I assume these discounted units are excess stock and probably none of them carry manufacturer warranty or may not have passed MSFT quality controls in the first place. I will be ordering a pair direct from MSFT instead in order to guarantee a warranty.
I wore the latest set of headphones deliberately for several hours to test comfort and they were indeed very comfortable. The earpads do exclude a considerable amount of extraneous noise without active noise cancellation (ANC), which is a progressive adjustment. At the adjustment's lowest setting, ANC is off and external sounds are lightly amplified. This is useful if there's an interruption and easier than lifting an earpiece to listen.
The sound quality is excellent but with volume and noise cancelling at all settings, there's a very faint hiss from the internal electronics. Noise cancellation is not as effective as the Sony XM3's, but is not far behind. The great thing with these is that their Bluetooth pairing and connection is well behaved and very easy to use. I had Sony headphones and sent them back because their Bluetooth was difficult to connect and the headphones often announced they were connected but carried no sound from my recent model Samsung TV.
Another great positive for me is that their control app is Windows-based. I'm probably one of the few people left who don't bother much with mobile phones. I have one but can't connect to Wifi and can't access the Apple store, so Windows connectivity was a great plus for me. The app is really easy to use, too and there's a lot of helpful information on line that is so much easier to read than in a tiny text multilingual instruction booklet or a small screen. Also, all features remain active during USB charging and firmware updates are easy to apply via the USB charging lead when connected to a computer. The audio spectrum can also be adjusted via the online app, with presets for jazz, pop, classical, rock and flat. Personalised settings can be saved.
Volume and ANC are controlled by rotary controls on the periphery of the earpieces. This is very easy to get used to. Internal prompts from the headphones are in an English accent, not a nasal American one, thank goodness.
The on/off button is just about flush with the right earpiece's curve and could do with being a little more proud, like the only other pushbutton control - well, a short bar really, which is a mute control, apparently operative when using a phone or a portable music source. A long touch on either headphone leads to Cortana's voice offering to learn your voice so some of the headphones' commands can be voice controlled. Since this is mainly for use with a mobile phone or iPod (or similar) to control taking phone calls or playing music, I can't comment because I haven't the means to test it. Other touch controls are available for calls and music and fall into the same category for me.
The headphones don't fold up to fit into a small(ish) case but the earpieces swivel so they can fit into an 8 inch square carrying case. It's a bit big to lug about but its quality of manufacture is as high as that of the headphones.
I have been searching for headphones that would allow me to listen to a pocket portable radio whilst walking near to a busy roadway. These headphones turn on when a 3.5mm stereo jack is inserted into the socket and both volume and noise reduction are fully functional making them ideal for that purpose.
I'm very happy/delighted with my purchase. Dave L
-Dials very easy to use.
-very comfortable compared to beats studio 3
-wireless range ia very good.
-software Improvement . The feature to play/pause automatically is nice when it works properly. If i hit pause than i take the headphones off it play.. It doesn’t understand that it was paused already. And Sometimes when i put them on again it start playing but with no voice so i have to turn them off and on again to make it work but this happened really few times. But maybe that is because i use it with a bluetooth transmitter connected to my tv.
Noise Cancellation: (Surface Headphones == Sony 1000XM3) > Bose QC35II.
The quality of noise cancellation on the Surface and Sony is very close, both standing well above Bose's. I am not too sure why, but Bose's NC gives me a weird headache, and it is not just the QC35 line, but also their in-ear QC20. There are reports of this happening to many other Bose owners, so, personally, I cannot recommend the Bose for the noise cancelling. Both Sony's and Surface Headphones' active noise cancelling is amazing, and for someone who takes bus rides daily, it is a godsend.
Comfort: Surface > Bose > Sony
When looking at how they rest on your head/ears, the Surface headphones are easily the most comfortable due to its over-ear design. To me, the Sony 1000XM3 are not comfortable since the drivers put physical pressure on my ear's cartilage, so after 20 minutes of listening, my ears would start hurting, and that is because of the on-ear design, similar to the Bose QC35II. As a commuter, comfort was the most important factor when I decided to get the Surface headphones.
Sound Quality: Sony > Bose > Surface
Both Sony and Bose have years of research and development backing them up, so their products have industry standard sound quality, whereas, the Surface headphones are Microsoft's first attempt at making premium headphones. I am not an audiophile, but I can still clearly tell the differences. For example, compared to the Bose QCII, the Surface headphones lack in the mids and highs. Do not get me wrong, the Surface Headphones do sound good for its main functions are being wireless and noise cancelling.
- Quality noise cancelling .
- Surprisingly good to play games with, such as PUBG and Overwatch (when cabled, with NC on). I can actually hear footsteps much clearer, and it beats any of the fake "7.1 surround sound" gaming headphones by a milestone.
- Build quality is premium (soft touch material), way better than the Bose. They weigh a tiny bit more than Sony's and Bose's, but it's negligible.
- Touch control on the sides, which makes it hands-free. Also, the dials for volume (on the right) and NC (on the left) are really smooth and easy to adjust.
- Fast charging, so you can sneak in a couple hours of battery with ~15 minutes of charging (as long as you have a fast charger).
- USB type-C
- If you run out of battery, they still function as normal headphones with the 3.5mm jack cable (with NC off).
- Voice assistant (Cortana, Siri, Google Voice) if you are into that.
- It has voice prompts, such as telling you battery life when turning it on. Also, it will pause your music when you take them off.
- Phone calls sound clear.
- Battery life (about 12 hours) is much shorter than the competitors. This is due to the voice assistant being on "stand-by" the whole time, which drains the battery. Microsoft is working on an firmware update to let you choose to have it turned off, but I don't think they will reach Sony's monstrous 30-hour battery.
- Sound quality is worse than Bose's and Sony's. You can try to tune it differently in the EQ, but they will still lack.
I like them a lot and I would recommend them to people interested in buying wireless, noise cancelling headphones at this price range. My primary use is with my iPhone, so as far as streaming over Spotify, to me they sound great.
My original comments still true: except for the quality of design and workmanship....Very comfortable, excellent controls....especiallybvolume and noise cancellation!
Bose QC35 best sound quality
Surface failed to work with iPhone X and iPad Pro
Soundlink isn’t noise cancelling
All three have microphones that amplify ALL VOICES IN THE ROOM – fail
Turns out the Jabra 370 really is the best for office communications, but not for taming noisy office.
Our company just moved to a new open office design. That means no walls, no offices, all open space with desks, work stations and huddle areas. I had an office until we moved and was going from speakerphone to headphones. We are a global company thus video conferencing and VOIP con calls are constant on Zoom, Skype, WebEx etc.
I already have a Bluetooth wireless headset Jabra 370, it is “on the ear” with a boom microphone, I thought an “around the ear” would help better with the new noisy office. The Jabra 370 uses a USB transmitter and is pretty much tied to desktops/laptops.
Now, about my special circumstances, I have a hearing disability and wear a hearing aid and Cochlear Implant. For this review what that means is that I hear from things that sit on my ear rather then inside my ear and because I already have the hearing aids cannot wear an ear bud arrangement. I am an IT professional.
This review is of all three subject headsets:
1) Noise Cancellation for Other Party – (FAIL) that is, when on a call what does the other side hear? And here all three failed, on calls the other parties could hear voices from all across the office because the microphone arrays would pick up every voice in the room. For the QC35 weirdly it was only when I was speaking – deathly silent when I wasn’t, but the moment I began to speak all the other voices in the room came through loud and clear, very distracting to the folks on other end of the call, at one point they could hear a conversation 35 feet away very clearly that I couldn't hear because of the headset
2) Noise Cancellation for Wearer– The Soundlink is not noise cancelling (I thought all Bose were) and therefore, it cannot work in a noisy open office environment, the Bose QC35 did the best job of noise cancellation, the Surface okay
But about noise cancellation – Bose is made for like a plane non-voice noisy environment, in an open office where the “noise” is other people talking on phones or in groups, the Bose actually makes the problem WORSE by amplifying surrounding voices
3) Call Quality – all three had good call quality on Win10 bluetooth, but the Surface had terrible quality for other party on the iPhone X and iPad, the other end and con calls could not hear me like I was in a tunnel
4) Pairing - All three headsets paired easily with my Win10 Lenovo corporate laptop, Win10 Surface Book 2 personal laptop, iPad Pro and iPhone X
5) No boom microphone – all three use a microphone array in the ear cup rather than boom microphone, my voice was clear on all three, but other side said QC35 was best sound
But note other voices are picked up as well
6) Surround the ear – all three styles are designed to fit around the ear entirely instead of on or in the ear, I was worried about discomfort based upon other reviews and the Surface has small ear cups, but all fit well over my (somewhat) oversized Obama type ears. The Bose were the most comfortable, in a warm office I can tell the Surface would have a sweat issue
7) Sound clarity – all three had very good voice sound clarity, but the Bose QC35 did so with less volume turned up, volume of 8 – 10 for others while volume of 5 on Bose QC35 to hear the same thing
8) Interoperability – all three operated fine on all manner of video, voip, UCaaS and web calls
9) Multi-device – in theory all three are supposed to connect to both phone and computer for dual inputs, I guess to hear music and then take a call or conversation, in reality that is horrible because my VOIP calls were constantly interrupted by the alerts and messages from my phone, the headset was constantly switching back and forth, and once, my iPhone randomly began playing music during a VOIP con call
10) Digital Aid/Cochlear – all three work fine with digital hearing and BTE hearing aids, and Advanced Bionics Cochlear implant
11) Sound Quality – my focus was on voice clarity not music, all three have excellent sound quality, The QC35 the best, then the Surface and then the Soundlink, the volume on the QC35 did not have to go as high to get the same results as the other two
