Also how comfy is the WH1000xM3? Could you see wearing it for a 15.5 hour flight for example?
I could never wear the Bose QCs for more than 10 minutes, since it gives me the "pressure" sensation. From my brief experience listening to them (in a relatively quiet store), I prefer Sony's sound signature.

For my relatively large head, the WH1000XM3 is very comfortable. I've spent an entire day listening to music in them last weekend, so I can wear it through a 15 hour long haul. It does get a little warm over time though.

Switching devices with the headphone isn't too difficult, so it's a non-issue for me. It might be a deal breaker for some people, but probably not a high priority feature for most people.
