I have had a lot of headphones and these things sound amazing un-wired and wired. The price is not out of line with other high-end headphones and you can pay $1k, $2k and up for high quality headphones. I don't understand why people b***ch so much about this product. If you don't like them, just buy a pair of headphones in the checkout line at the grocery store.
Every. Single. Thread. they come out of the woodwork demanding that Apple build a ******** version and sell it for $200 or whatever. Look, I get it, people are too cheap to buy them. I'm too cheap to buy a lot of nice things. But you don't see me whinging about the fact that those things exist.

I've worn mine for easily 2,000-3,000 hours at this point throughout most of the pandemic and beyond for music, video calls, TV, travelling and at home, and they've been amazing for all of it. The noise cancellation shuts out everything, and the transparency mode sounds so natural you forget you're wearing headphones. The solid metal earcups look as good as they did on day 1 and the controls and headband hardware are as silky smooth as ever. I got 8 hours use out of 50% battery the other day, which isn't bad for them being nearly 2 years old and in daily use. I paid full-ass retail price for them the minute they came out, and the $250 or so they cost beyond a pair of plastic Sonys or Bose has LONG been forgotten.

My 80 year old mother needs constant attention. I wear these sitting 5 feet from her and her super loud tv and can conduct meetings without anyone being bothered. Sure you can offer up other competing products but for me this thing is a life saver. Best piece of tech I own. You guys ever get sick of bitching?

Bring it down to $349 including tax and shipping and I will buy it.
Well said. And while we're at it, bring BMWs down to $25K all inclusive and I will buy one.
