Hopefully they can finally match the Sony 1000X series, I think the B&O 700 came out ahead in a few areas over the XM4 but the ANC on the is 2nd to none, my XM3s are amazing, but I've used someone elses XM4s and the cups are even better and more comfortable.

I forget that my PC is on when I put them on, zero fan hum. They were great for blocking out the PS4 Pro hurricane as well, not an issue with PS5 now thankfully.

I've read so much on these, but it all amounts to unfortunately these aren't worth the high pricetag, some lucid reviewers even say go with the Penrose X for better value per dollar.

Their frequency responses aren't super impressive for the price point unfortunately.
