If you prioritize comfort, top-notch active noise canceling for air travel, and wireless convenience, the Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones are a great choice; they excel at blocking out ambient noise and have a long battery life ideal for extended use. On the other hand, if you prefer in-ear monitors with a cable, don't require active noise canceling, and are looking for a more balanced and authentic audio reproduction for critical listening, the Moondrop Blessing 2 could be a better fit, although they're not as versatile for calls or TV watching due to poorer microphone quality and no wireless option. Consider where you'll use them most and if you need features like virtual surround sound, wireless charging, or sweatproofing, which the Bose offers but the Moondrop does not. Give Feedback

Christian Thomas | January 2024
"The Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones are a credible step up from previous Bose ANC headphones, and they're built to hang tough with the competition for years into the future. No waterproofing is a bit of a letdown, but these headphones have the technical chops to make most quite happy."

Sebastian Taboada | March 2021
"After having the opportunity to finally listen to them myself, I think I can kind of begin to understand why this set in particular has garnered so much hype and praise over the past year, since its release. It’s a truly delightful IEM to listen to, with an outstanding tonal balance that I think most listeners will enjoy, and solid all-around technical performance at a great price."
