Price of Beats is lower by $100 compared to Bose!
I am big fan of Bose although people do consider other options such as Beats playing in market for the reasons of cost mainly. When you talk of noise cancelling wireless headphones, Beats Studio Wireless & Bose QC35 are the top sellers as on now. Since the price of Beats is lower by $100 compared to Bose, it is evident that we compare them for the Specs & Performance at once to get which one is good to buy ?
Prestige Symbol vs Quality? Who Wins?
Everyone knows that Beats has gr8 marketing strategy in place and using celebrities they have made a point to feel that wearing Dr Dre Beats is a prestige symbol ! but nevertheless Bose itself is a brand and one looking at you wearing Bose need not tell your status and liking for Quality .. these are my views of course !
So coming to the comparison, I have prepared simple chart showing the positives against each other, colored in Green & Orange for quick differentiation, hope you will like it.
