Shure AONIC 40 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones is actually the first Shure product that I owned. As the number 40 in the product name suggests, AONIC 40 has a 40 mm dynamic driver which makes it in the same range as the Sony WH-1000XM4 Headphones and Apple AirPod Max.
AONIC 40 is Shure’s mid-range wireless noise-cancelling headphones. They have another higher-end which is the AONIC 50.

My birthday present came early. My brother got me a very generous birthday present, the
Apple AirPods Max. It retails for S$849 and is available in five colors, Space Grey, Silver, Green, Blue, and Pink.
My brother got me the Blue flagship color. He ordered on 19th February 2021, and the delivery estimate was 6 to 7 weeks, which makes it around 7th to 13th April 2021. He didn’t expect the shipment to be just one week as I received it on 26th February 2021. Maybe someone canceled their order, and they have stock.

I was waiting for the rumored Apple AirPods Studio to be announced as I intended to get it. But after Apple announces the AirPods Max, I went ahead and bought the
Sony WH-1000XM4 Headphones instead.
At S$849, AirPods Max is not targeted at regular consumers. I am not an audiophile by any extent, so I would not spend that much money on headphones.

I am currently using the
Bose QuietComfort 15 (QC15), and it is no doubt the best active noise cancellation (ACN) headphones in the market. It is extremely useful especially when you are on a plane.
Bose QuietComfort 35 (QC35) is the updated model to Bose QC25 and Bose QC25 is the updated model to Bose QC15. What makes Bose QC35 stands out over Bose QC25 is the wireless capability. Bose QC35 – Box Front
