    Jeez the WH-1000XM3's retail at $599 at the Sony store but Lemmings had them on special at $388. Worth every cent of that.

    If you buy the considerably more expensive Sennheiser wireless heaphones , supposedly they work considerably better
    yes, probably.
    I bought mine overseas. Not that expensive there, but I did research models first and chose one people gave good reviews.
    Rather just brand alone.

    Agreed, the Momentums are fantastic!

    Thanks for the headsup Ken you are quite correct 360 sound is very good but in all honesty probably wasted on me I have quite some hearing loss due to being too close to things going bang back in the day.

    Yes, no matter how good it is, it can't block out the ringing in the ears. Motor trade and working in an intense machine operating area. Never thought of hearing loss in those days.

    I share your ringing Ken. Caused by years of working in noisy communications office. Ear protection was never ever suggested, at least they are onto it these days.

    Wouldn't be feeling so bad about it if it had been caused by sex, drugs and rock 'n roll
