"Good, but niggly UI things could be better"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

These are definitely a premium product: you're getting what you're paying for. But as a premium product, they don't quite have some things right. For a start, it's crazy that you can't wireless while charging. I can only think that this is due to electrical/noise issues, but who wants to plug _two_ cables in to charge- Then there's ambient noise enablement. Great feature, but too hard to turn on. The time when you want this is when someone walks up to you. You don't want to be cupping your hand like a goofball while talking to them, and you don't want to wait seconds while the sweet voice tells you “Ambient sound enabled”. This should be a single tap on the touch-UI. But – the noise reduction is great, and the comfort is high, so that's the main thing.

These over-ear headphones feature 40mm drivers and advanced noise cancellation that adapts to your actions and can be personalized to meet your needs.

The battery can stream music with noise cancellation on for up to 30 hours and recharges in approximately four via the included micro-USB cable. The 1000XM2's earcups fold for storage in the included carry case. An airline adapter is also included.
