Sony WH-1000XM3 Hands-On

So far the BOSE Quietcomfort 25 were the ANC headphones of my choice. Unfortunately a loose contact crept in: after 5 years of use time for a new model. I chose the Sony WH-1000XM3, which, according to other tests, are currently among the best active-noise-canceling headphones. As alternatives the BOSE QC35II and the Beyerdynamic Lagoon ANC Explorer were available - I wanted to get away from BOSE, ...

Teufel Move BT: sporty music via Bluetooth

Those looking for headphones for sporting activities will sooner or later end up with various Bluetooth in-ear models: The Berlin company Teufel is sending their model "Move BT" into the race, which I tried out once. Purpose: primarily on a rowing machine (Concept2), which generates resistance through a windmill. Side effect of this brake: an even noise, which prevents the use of normal loudspeakers during training (unless you want to reach sound levels, ...

BOSE QuietComfort 25 Ears-On

If you want to have peace and quiet in the office or on the road, you should look for headphones with active noise suppression: BOSE has a very interesting offer in its portfolio with the QuietComfort 25. This field report should make a possible purchase decision easier, but is of course not a professional test. The BOSE SoundTrue Around-Ear headphones already keep ambient noise away from the ear quite well - with the QuietComfort 25 this works even better. The ...

Comparison: Bose SoundTrue, MMX 300, Ultrasone Pro 450

Since I'm still very happy with my Beyerdynamic MMX 300 (home) and also the much cheaper Ultrasone Pro 450 (office), now with the Bose SoundTrue Around-Ear headphones, another possibility for comparison has arisen. All three headphones have a slightly different target group: the MMX 300, as a headset with a microphone, is most likely to appeal to audiophile gamers, while the Ultrasone Pro 450 are available at a third of the price.
