Coming soon from Sony: New wireless and wired headphones, an audiophile headphone amp, and a gold-plated digital audio player featuring a chassis machined from solid copper.

Granted, this was a controlled demonstration in a hotel suite and Sony provided the QC35s , but I came away impressed—and not just with the noise cancellation and musicality.

Sony s MDR-1000X boasts several innovative features that Bose s flagship headphones don t.

During the demo, Sony s team had me put on a pair of Bose s flagship headphones, with noise cancellation enabled, while they played some music on one of their high-end digital audio players.

The sound was the simulated noise of a jet engine as you d hear it from inside the aircraft s cabin, played on a large loudspeaker they d hidden in the room.

That was impressive, but Sony s next tricks were even better.
