I was about to buy some Bose noise cancelling headphones then noticed there was a new model available. I was wondering if the newer model offered anything more than the older one for decreased sound tolerance? Id appreciate any advice or comments anyone has. Th

The two Im referring to are

Older model Bose 35 (series 1)

Newer model Bose 35 (series 2)

Thanks a lot

Hi Supernoodles
I have bose quiet comfort 20, the ear buds that are older
And bose 35 II the head phones.
- when I was doing my research on bose equipment, I saw that the older ear buds 20’s has a much longer battery life.
-I think you have to try them all, I did for a couple of days each.
-I actually need both because my sound tolerance is so low.
-I also use silicone that you can mold yourself sold at a local rite aid pharmacy.
Hope it helps!

anyone have any advice on this one: we are having a difficult time finding a home to move to, everything here in CA seems to be near busy streets. I know if you wear earplugs outside it just makes you more sensitive to noise but what about the earphones that people use and maybe put some white noise in there to listen to so it's not silent "noise." Any suggestions on that theory and what products to consider?

I use the Bose HEARphones. Pricey, but full control to each ear. A full month and it's changed my life. It has a phone app control and I have a pink noise app for T. I can let in a little world at a time with these, and work my way up.  I bought a pair and before they arrived my work gave me a pair for Christmas. Spares are still in the sealed box.
