    Default Over the head, wired head set with microphone for Note 3

    Hi all,

    I would like to go "wired" instead of Bluetooth. Wondering what you are using?


    Thx

    I have the V-moda M-100 but they are $300 dollars and music quality was a priority over microphone though it does have 1... I love V-moda and the build quality and maybe the LP which is around $100-130 or so is a decent choice ( really bass heavy) or the brand new XS which is on the ear for $200

    I like the BOSE Q15, they sound great to ME. I've tried a lot of headphones over the years and these are good for ME. Everyones ears are different and like different sounds, IMO BOSE allows you to hear ALL the music.

    I would always go wired. Can bluetooth really compare? I don't know. I have high bit rate files.

    Via my Note 3 on AC.

    Active noise cancellation headphones while for you might be good headphones with active noise cancellation will never have the best sound for the price ....long story short version why is the stuff that makes it active noise cancellation effects sound quality ( this is also not scientific)

    In store yes ...using my own music player. They are the best active noise cancellation headphones but I prefer noise quality over noise cancellation. I'm not saying you liking it is a bad choice but just informing people in general active noise cancellation headphones wouldn't sound as good as ones with like passive noise cancellation in the same price range

    Yeah OK....Compared to V-Moda I suppose. BOSE has been a standard in the audio business for a while....I guess because people think their products sound...oh I don't know...Maybe ...GREAT

    I don't buy Bose and I require great sounding products

    People buy beats because they think it sounds "great" ...while I would buy Bose way before beats and they aren't terrible you can find better for the same price

    My highly biased unsubstantiated opinion is that Beats by Dr Dre!! LOL have been a young generation style icon adopted by HP that have no actual history in audio. I may actually like them, though not when I tried 2 models in store with their mp3 music.

    Bose is a bigger annoyance for me. I have heard their surround systems a few years ago with the little speakers. They can impress initially because of their size and again are ok for movies.
    But that Bose Wave 3 sided radio / dab/ cd/ ipod player in black or white with slats, that has been more or less the same for 20 years I really don't get.
    I have spent time with them house sitting in 2 houses. Over priced 'Emporers new Clothes' rubbish people buy to impress.
    I wish I had the money to try out their real audio, they must have great expertise.
    I can certainly accept their headphones could be excellent.
    Noise cancellation affecting sonic performance sounds logical, but may not affect the sound in practice, especially if there is no external noise to cancel. *(Though I forget how they work)

    I have always been biased against Bose with their dsigner stores, because they seem aimed at people who want an expensive name. Maybe they will read this and give me freebies.

    I am currently an open back Grado man.

    Active noise cancellation in no scientific reasoning but is true is the headphones has mics the listen to outside noise and basically takes that and counters it with the opposite frequency (something like that) to cancel out that noise. Bose Qc15 is one of the best and is probably the Best active noise cancellation headphones in the market and if you need active noise cancellation for a plane ride or noisy house then i would suggest those over other brands that use active noise cancellation like Beats Studios (solely based on active noise cancellation) to name another one . The electronics that make the active noise cancellation will affect the sound quality. The Bose Qc15 and even their other products like IE2 aren't "bad" products but if your looking for the most bang for your buck for pure sound quality $299.99 for the Qc15 sound quality a bit to much. I would value the QC15 on pure sound quality around $200

    I am a newbie on all this stuff, with that said, I got these.
    Sony MDR 1RBT MK2.

    Our Note 3 has apt-X the Sony has apt-X. Plus I can go wired and get Hi Res Audio. The apt-x Bluetooth playing hi bit audio files is killer.

    Again, I am a newbie

    I use my old iPhone earbuds with my note 3. Surprisingly the sound is very good.
