Still great download speeds for me. Averaging about 6MB/s on the 720p file. Thanks!

Those Sennheisers seems so much cooler than the bose.

 

@Slick You should consider a Linus SeemsGood emote for your Twitch channel from the still at 5:00 xD too perfect.

My download of the 720p file only took ~15 seconds at a constant speed of 6.8 Mbps.

LMG : With the way you've setup everything, you could easily integrate a video player using videojs. The file format you are currently using are supported. You could also add multiple streaming resolution on the player. There is only one little thing to change on the way the content is distributed with the file download controller so you could scroll through the video without having a 403 error. My test on a local integration works great. If you need some dev volunteering, I would be glad to help!

BTW, nice video :)

Hey, was it intentional to speed up the sound (and it becoming a bit high-pitched) at around 7:08-7:18?

 

On the topic: I really like how the PXC550 looks, but the padding on the headband... my neck will be sweaty in no time with that =/ Sad that bose's ANC implementation harms dem bases too much =(

Anyway, thanks for the video. I was looking to pick up some NC headphones soon, so it was on point :3

6-7MB/s is good enough for meh...my internet connection is only 7.5MB/s~ anyway (was 9.5MB/s) so I'm basically getting my max bandwidth anyway :P

I have the QC25s that my work bought, they are amazing.  Would be interesting to try the QC35s or the PXC 550s

The Playstation VR Video had a 1080p (H.265) and it was only around 270MB to download....this one at 720p is much larger. 

Is 720p (H.264) better than 1080p(H.265)? I know they are different codecs, I am just wondering which one is better.

That's probably because they encoded the 720p at a higher bitrate compared to the h265 1080p video resulting in similar sizes and "better" quality with the 720p (although h265 at a lower bit rate should look as good as a higher bitrate h254 :P)

Just to keep you guys updated.

Again got decent download speed, started from 7 megs but steadied to around 4 mb/s after a while, overall I think its good. Allthough I am nowhere near downloading these during the "peak hours" (when the video goes live)

Phew. I only bought a pair of qc35's this week. I'm glad after watching this video I made the right choice. In saying that I was in a video meeting yesterday, and there was someone using a microphone for an hour (near my desk) giving the work place I work at updates etc, I barely heard it. People clapping, nope couldn't hear that either.

Any chance you could send the filesize in the header so my browser can show download progress ?

I support this. My download speed was 3,5 MB/s which is fine. I own a a pair of Monster purity pro wireless headphones with ANC. Their sound quality is good but the earcups are too narrow for my head which results in pain after long use. So probably would choose Bose's from these two in this video.
