The outward appearance is that you are talking to yourself with one hand on the left ear muff and suddenly experiencing a sense of joy at seemingly nothing. I found this to be super simple and had no issues with Siri hearing or understanding what I asked of her to do. This feature is really great, very good integration with Google with this button. I allowed full access, and the assistant works really well. From the sounds of everything I listened to, the comfort, the noise cancelation, and even the carrying case.
The padding on the ear cups is very nice and seems to wear well. They cancel noise so effectively that taking them off after wearing them a while makes you ultrasensitive to noise; you are suddenly able to hear even the small noises around you. This way, you can switch from your iPad to your iPhone to take a call automatically. Works in wired mode with included cord if battery dies. All the Siri commands that work on your iPhone work via this button so no worries here. Sony definitely offers more bass with their headphones but that comes at a cost of the highs.
Simply add a Walmart Protection Plan to your order and checkout as usual. Previous 1000X had a problem with phone call where you cannot hear yourself so you end up shouting. I went with the triple-black model and they almost look like a dark navy, they're also matte and don't show fingerprints nearly as bad as glossy headphones from the competition. Bose products are pretty simple to use as far as buttons go. It is very intuitive and easy. So you can keep the music—or the quiet—going all day long. I bought these headphones and regretted the decision the moment I started listening.
No matter how noisy the world around you is, it's just you and your music. At that time, I was rocking the Sony 1000X Wireless Noise Cancelling headphones and I never thought I would find a better, more comfortable pair of headphones.

Especially impressive was when I missed hearing a medium-sized U-Haul truck driving into my street close to my driveway. There are a couple smaller features I liked better on the Bose changing what device you are connected to on the Bose was easier , but without a doubt, Sony has more customizablity, and the sound is just plain superior to the Bose. And if the battery should run out, just plug in as normal with the included cable to keep the music playing. My only disappointment with these headphones came during the unboxing. When the air handler kicks in there is a lot of extra noise that I wanted to get rid of and these headphones did just that. Alexa could not bring up songs or playlists in Apple Music and I don't want to switch to inferior music services like Amazon Music or Spotify.
These are great for the office too if you want to block out any noisy coworkers. For most of the route there is really little need for noise canceling but the Bose headphones were still an excellent way to listen to music playing at a comfortable level over Bluetooth from my phone. And now they are optimized for Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant. I didn't even really look at the instructions. The ability to connect them via cable is handy and the only small downside is my ears get a bit hot for long sessions of wearing these.

When you want to take your music anywhere, you need headphones built to keep up. Settings for the headphones include connections to different devices, the level of noise cancellation, and updating the firmware. Want to know the battery level? One thing I noticed was that the actual speaker on the inside of the ear cup seems to be angled toward your ear. I was able to listen to music for several hours barely aware they were on me. And this is the way I like it as a professional who commutes on the train and wouldn't want a funky looking headphone with gaudy design and colors attracting attention. A big plus for me is the carry case that comes with it, making it easier to store away. The headband extends easily and the materials used to build it feels very solid.
But even with glasses I don't have a problem besides warm ears wearing these headphones for a long period of time. If you exceed the allowance, your services may be restricted or terminated. Browse your current library, stream your favourite music services or explore new playlists with one simple connection. Normally, you would need to crank up the music to drown out your surroundings.

Overall, the headphones are incredibly lightweight. You can also adjust the level of noise cancellation between three levels to better fit your environment. The list goes on and on and you don't need to glance at your smart phone. I would buy another pair if I didn't already own two. All the other pieces are tucked away inside. With Bose, you can connect two devices at the same time. And remember, sharing is caring.
What it really adds though, is the ability to ask for anything and have Google do it. I've not had the chance to use these on a plane yet like I did with the Sony's but with noise canceling turned up to high I can almost not hear anything else around me so I'm assuming they will work just as well if not better for travel. It is realistic to describe the range as being the room the user is in and the adjacent room. Maybe the headphone cannot tell the battery level precisely. Once they are fully charged, the battery indicator light will turn green.
