My brother picked them out (I paid for them), I directed him to this thread, I don't know if he actually browsed this site or did his research elsewhere and came to the same conclusion.

Had my XM4s for a few weeks. Of course, the price was absurd. But I upgraded from an inferior pair that a friend gifted me.

Chief boons:
Despite their size the fit is light, snug and unobtrusive.
Noise cancelling is impresive (though it's by no stretch outside noise-proof regardless of app setting).

Chief cons:
Battery life is not extensive (will require daily charging for extensive use).
Lightweight, non-folding design requires case when not in use.

Course, I got the 2 year warranty. I'm hard on all my devices. If these go 6 months without falling apart in some manner I'll be impressed.

Is there anything that is completely noise-proof? *unsure*

Nothing more tragic than a man who cannot hear. Wouldn't wish it on anyone.

I picked up a nice set of Bluetooth speakers to compliment the wireless headphones, they were unbelievably heavy but I managed to get them set up, Edifier S350DB





Now I have quality wireless audio both ways, much better (and heavier) speakers than the cheesy Logitech speakers I was using, so yay...
