Agree with that lol. I think I will eventually add the H9i to my collection
The ANC is certainly not better on the Bose than the Sony.
ANC isn’t the best on the H9i. Bose are best for ANC. Depends on what you want from the headphones. I sacrificed ANC for the best sound quality. I agree that Sony build quality wasn’t near as good as H9i. Bose was ok. H9i are a work of art in my opinion.
I got the Sony and the Bose. Sony looks and feels rather cheap tbh! Saying that it sounds better than the Bose. H9i is on my list for a while. Tested it at the airport. Sounds great. Not so sure about their noise cancelling.
John Lewis offer the same price for certain colours :)
