Have the over-ear WH-100XM2 and I love them. They do get a little warm on my ears after a long flight, and they take up a bit of room in my luggage...

Anyone have the new in-ear WF-1000XM3 and can compare to the headphones?

I got WF 1000XM3 and Sony WH 1000XM3, NC is better on over ear, but the in ear are great, i dont like to walk around in airport with over the ear but the in ear no problem, actually i never use the over ear anymore, love the in ear, easy to sleep with them on plane, i use iphone, never had problem connection with bluetooth.

I use Parrot Zik 3. The sound quality is amazing. I could compare it with Bose 35. Noise cancelling is almost the same, sound quality - I liked Parrot more because of mobile application, you may really adjust the sound as you like. Parrot is a little bit cheaper on ebay.

I use Parrot Zik 3 and quite happy with them. I could compare it with Bose 35. Noise cancelling level almost the same, but the sound quality is better in the Parrot. ALso Parrot is a little bit cheaper on the eBay.

Interesting. My pair came with a hard case. Similar to what Bose provides. I was pleasantly surprised as I thought they came with a soft bag.

The ones available on Amazon.com are "renewed" but the ones off the Treasure Truck were new. I double checked.

This is the product link for the one off the Treasure Truck: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07574TYWW/

Bowers and Wilkins replaced the PX and has released two new headphones, the PX5 ($299) and the PX7 ($399).

Right. They were available on the Amazon Treasure Truck for $229 not on Amazon.com for that price. When I check my "orders" on my account, it links to the new B&W PX set. Not the "renewed" set.
