Thumbs up Sound Quality of the Stiletto... nice :)

Almost a week with my Stiletto now. The sound quality is simple amazing compared to my S50. I've been traveling with the Stiletto this week using my Bose QC3 headphones. The sound quality is very close to my trusty iPod's. When compared to my S50 it is much superior IMO.

Not to knock my S50 which has been acting perfectly since February (4th unit) it just the Stiletto out of the box is a better product. My first 3 S50 had me cursing a lot...... The Stiletto turns on and shuts off and performs very nicely.

Not sure if the sound quality is any different. I think they are very similar in that regard but it could be my ears. Overall MUCH better unit though.

How you like those Bose headphones? I'm looking for a new pair of headphones. Only thing about those I don't like is the price. Are they worth it?

Have you tried the QC2's? I was thinking I might like the over the ear design better but not sure.

I didn't notice much of a sound difference in my S50 compared to my Stiletto with standard ear buds until I listened through the Bose 3s.

I was actually surpised with the "on the ear". I looked at the 2's first. I fly every week and ears buds just didn't knock the noise for me. The 3's do a fine job of drowning out the noise, very comfortable you almost forget they are there. Plus they are much smaller and the case fits better in my laptop bag.

The only problem is every flight someone pokes me in the arm to ask me about them. LMAO Selectively I have let people try them out and they are amazed once you turn them on.... no more Jet engine noise. The bass is great too. Bose offers 6 - 12 months interest free. I tried them out for 30 days and kept them.

I have a friend that produces music that has very high end headphones. He too was amazing by the sound, amazing bass. He actually said they had probably the best deep bass of any headphones he has ever used.
