Anyone see a model number so can compare on Amazon and check reviews?
Was waiting for that too.  :D

Bluetooth earbuds vary greatly in quality.

It will have the same issue, the problem is the lag caused by the chip sending the reverse sound wave. Some people cannot handle active noise cancellation. The 25s may have a bit less white noise, but if it is as extreme as getting him nauseous, active noise cancelling is not for you.

Earbuds bother me, over ear cups don't.

I wore them on a flight and it was actually much better.

I'm the opposite. I can't wear cups while wearing glasses for too long.

  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Wow!
This is their statement. "Update June 26, 2015: Some people are contending that the above teardown is based on knockoffs. I contacted the design firm behind the original Beats at the time of publication, but I received no response. Iíve reached out to Apple/Beats on this matter, and Iím investigating with our in-house pair of Beats Studio headphones. If we definitely learn that these headphones are knockoffs, Iíll update."


It would be interesting to see another teardown now to see if there is a difference

I bought Logitech UE 4000 for $15 http://www.dansdeals.com/archives/54883
I love them. The sound is amazing! I truly don't understand why they were ever discounted so much.

Now I bought Bose SoundTrue Headphones On-Ear Style for $60 http://www.dansdeals.com/archives/78687

Is there anyone that can help me decide if the Bose is a major upgrade over the Logitech?

Or I should flip the Bose for a small profit?
