slimline, great sound quality, foldable.

If you are listening to music through apple earphones then you are mugging yourself off

B&W is not for everyone. Hurts on my ears after an hour or so.

Still love my sennheiser hd-25, sound might not be to everyones liking but they seem indestructable

Same, thinking about getting a pair of Bose QC 35 II on black friday, just for noise cancellling ability

I’m after some in ear Bluetooth for the gym. Ones that stay in your ears no matter what, decent sound quality and are small

Any recommendations?

this is a great alternative if you have an already decent set of non-wireless headphone/iem that you want to use wirelessly. doesn't really take care the cabling inconvenience but it detached your pair from the phone. sounds great too.

Is that a DAC in your pocket or are you just pleased to see me?

Soyboys Laughing out loud

I picked up some Bowers & Wilkin PX earlier this year and love'em. Read a lot of reviews/comparisons of the M3, QC, and PX before I pulled the trigger and the tl;dr is: Sony M3 best for noise-cancelling and Bowers PX best for sound.

BW PX also have some AirPod-like features - when you put them on they start playing automatically; if you lift one ear cup or take them off completely the audio/video automatically pauses; if you leave them off they will automatically turn off, etc. Before buying thought it was all a bit gimmicky but it's actually super convenient.
