I purchased 4 different major brand noise canceling headphones to try out at my office (it is really loud in my workplace). Bose, by far, had the best noice cancelation, but the worse overall flat sound quality. I purchased the Bose anyway because the NC was what I needed most. So, I’d say if you don’t need NC then I’d avoid them.
I too am comparing multiple top-end earbuds. But I’ve found the sound to be the best from Bose with the deepest base (like a subwoofer), excellent soundstage, and live performance-like presence. I suggest ensuring you have a good seal with the right sized tips, otherwise it will sound flat.
