I had purchased Bluedio headphones, but they turned out to be rather useless. They

  • are usually noisy (scratchy)
  • don't pair reliably, I am left 10-20 minutes at the start of the meetings trying to get them working.

My plug in ones work fine every time, so the hardware on my PC is ok.

I am looking for over ear wireless (BLE), chargeable headphones

  • I use them for online meetings only,
  • NOT for gaming, and NOT for listening to music
  • Price point about $200 (Sony ones are $500 around here!!).
  • For Windows 10 PC and Windows 11 laptop
  • I dont want in the ear or on the ear ones as I have hearing aids and glasses

I bought the Sony Mk3 and Bose 700, and ended up returning the Sony. Both were very similar and had excellent noise canceling. They came out with the Mk4 shortly thereafter that had all the features that I chose the Bose for.

I have been using my Bose 700 5 days a week for 2 years and the battery life has dropped from 21 hours to 16 hours per charge. I have had to replace the ear cups twice, but otherwise they look brand new despite what I have put them through.


I ended up buying a Sony WHC720NB, over ear headphones. It was a balance between cost and clarity/battery life.

Usage Feedback

After using them, I made a good choice. The sound is a little hissy only if I turn on the Noise Cancelling. I don't need NC anyway, I prefer to hear things around me as well. They are miles better than what I had before.

They also pair seamlessly with my Samsung TV. Once paired, if I turn on the headphones close to the TV, the TV pops up a question and asks if I want to use the headphones. I click on Yes and it streams to teh headphones. When I switch off teh headphones, the TV goes back to using its speker.
