Pros Lightweight, good soundExcellent sound quality, field-leading noise cancellation, comforatbleGreat sound quality, good noise cancellation, comfortable, built-in Google AssistantGreat sound quality, great noise cancellationGreat sound quality, great noise cancellation, comfortable, user friendly features
Cons Expensive, especially considering their relative performanceExpensiveExpensiveExpensive, touch sensitive controls can take a little getting used toExpensive, both sound quality and noise cancellation fall just short of being the best in the field
Bottom Line Not bad if you like the styling, but you can get better sound quality, noise isolation, and comfort elsewhere for the same priceThe clear choice for those that place a premium on sound quality and noise isolationPerfect for audiophiles that want the best possible sound and good noise cancellationA great choice for those that want high end sound and noise cancellationThough not the absolute best noise cancelling phones on the market, these puppies come close
