A while ago I posted here about getting either quietcontrol 30’s or quietcomfort 35ii’s.
Honestly I kinda wish I would have gone with the controls as somebody suggested. I feel they would have lasted longer. Now I’m back again on here because the QC35ii’s have…deteriorated. Kind of hard to explain what happened but the “leather” that held the foam in kind of burst open. So now the foam is still sitting inside that pleather, but…just not as it should be. If anybody wants to see what happened so bad they want a picture, let me know and I’m sure I can do that. Nothing I did was the result of any negligence on my part. The seams just failed at about the same time on both sides, though one happened a little before the other.
So yeah needless to say, although they still work they hardly feel like a sweet $300 pair like they should. Not sure how much longer I really feel like wearing them anymore. One question is, does anybody think they can be repaired? I mean it is just an external pad problem, not like an internal electronics problem. Although, the active noise cancelling has been making crackling noises from time to time.
All this said, they’ve had their upsides. They have a nice long 20 hour battery time which is great for me since I can just about use all 20 hours some days when I put off sleeping for a few more hours than usual. It’s hard to get through a full charge in one day, in fact I don’t think I’ve ever done it. You only run into trouble if you forget to charge it, but it does charge pretty fast.
So that begs the question: Is there a pair of headphones out there that has all the things the QC35ii’s have except with added durability? I use my headphones absolutely all day every day. They’d need to be practically bulletproof. And I’m not going to like giving up the fact that they’re wireless and have a 20 hour battery life. So I guess I shouldn’t even knock this pair too much because they still have a lot going for them. If I could get them fixed that would probably be the best thing. But I don’t know anything about that. Who do I go to for that? Best Buy or a seamstress? I honestly couldn’t tell you either way!
