I went to Bestbuy and connected my iPhone via Bluetooth to both headphones. I went back and forth between both with the same songs and I think I do like the sound of the Sony’s more. The bass was better and it has a warmer sound. When I went back to the Bose it sounded thin in comparison. The Bose does however have a little more clarity. The ANC was better on the WH-1000MX2 as well. Now I need to decide if I am going to return my QC35 ii for the WH-1000MX2.
Yes I tried 3rd party EQ but I didn’t like the sounds. It sounded better as is. I ended up returning mine for the Sony. It just has a better sound. It’s too bad because I really like the comfort of the QC35. The Sony is comfortably too but not as much as the Bose
