Sony WH-1000XM2 (2017) vs Sennheiser Urbanite XL Wireless (2015)

Analysis:

While the Sony WH-1000XM2 (2017) makes for a fairly good Noise-Cancelling Headphone for people with a $270 budget, we weren't able to find enough data on the Sennheiser Urbanite XL Wireless (2015) to come to any reliable conclusions.

In either case, we suggest that you look at some other options at the $270 and $160 budget ranges before committing to one of these.

If you'd nonetheless like to learn more about the Sony WH-1000XM2 (2017) and Sennheiser Urbanite XL Wireless (2015), however, we wrote a summary of what we know about them:

The reviewers at HomeTheaterReview.com have featured the Sony WH-1000XM2 (2017) in their Sony WH-1000XM2 Wireless Noise-Cancelling Headphones Reviewed roundup. However, it fell short of making it to the top of their list.

Taking a look at the Sennheiser Urbanite XL Wireless (2015), we found that it hasn't managed to perform well enough to earn a spot in any Noise-Cancelling Headphone roundups done by sources that conduct their own, high-quality, hands-on testing. That alone makes it difficult to recommend.

When we thoroughly analyzed their review scores, we learned that all of the sources that tested both Noise-Cancelling Headphones, including Digitaltrends, preferred the Sony WH-1000XM2 (2017) over the Sennheiser Urbanite XL Wireless (2015).

We also took a look at which sources they managed to impress the most. The Sony WH-1000XM2 (2017) was liked best by Digitaltrends, which gave it a score of 10, while the Sennheiser Urbanite XL Wireless (2015) got its highest, 8, score from Digitaltrends.

Lastly, we averaged out all of the reviews scores that we could find on these two products and compared them to other Noise-Cancelling Headphones on the market. We learned that both of them performed far better than most of their competitors - the overall review average earned by Noise-Cancelling Headphones being 7.6 out of 10, whereas the Sony WH-1000XM2 (2017) and Sennheiser Urbanite XL Wireless (2015) managed averages of 9.5 and 8.0 points, respectively.

Due to the difference in their prices, however, it's important to keep in mind that a direct Sony WH-1000XM2 (2017) vs. Sennheiser Urbanite XL Wireless (2015) comparison might not be entirely fair - some sources don't take value for money into account when assigning their scores and therefore have a tendency to rate more premium products better.
