I don't want to start a holy war here, but what is the deal with you BOSE fanatics? I've been sitting here at my freelance gig with my QuietComfort 35 wireless loaded with Megadeth for about 20 minutes now while I attempt to listen to a 17 Meg mp3 from one directory on the ipod. 20 minutes. At home, with my Pioneer HDJ2000 listening to Radiohead, which by all standards should be a lot slower than Megadeth, the same operation would take about 2 minutes. If that.
In addition, during this jam session, Soundcloud will not work. And everything else has ground to a halt. Even Facebook is straining to keep up as I type this.
I won't bore you with the laundry list of other problems that I've encountered while working on various headphones, but suffice it to say there have been many, not the least of which is I've never seen headphones that run faster than the songs playing on them, despite counting double when you listen to mashups since you are getting two songs at once. My Sony Walkman with a Chromium Dioxide cassette plays Megadeth faster than these headphones. From a productivity standpoint, I don't get how people can claim that the BOSE headphones are superior interfaces.
BOSE addicts, flame me if you'd like, but I'd rather hear some intelligent reasons why anyone would choose to use QuietComfort over other faster, cheaper, more stable systems.
