ANC headset; how to choose

Hi, I'm trying to choose an ANC headset from a limited selection, and I have no prior experience regarding. I can watch reviews and whatnot, but what are the main points I should consider before I make my decision. These are for "study" purposes, so I can concentrate without getting distracted. Yes, I have thought about getting actual earmuffs, but where's the fun in that.

There are really only two (commonly recommended) brands when it comes to ANC: Bose and Sony.


Sony's Options:

- WH-1000XM3 (Over-ear headphones)

- WF-1000XM3 (Earbuds)


Bose's Options:

- QC35 II (Over-ear headphones)

- Bose 700 (newer version of the QC35s)


Beyond deciding between earbuds and headphones, it really comes down to which pair has the features you want. Most reviews seem to find only minor differences between the various pairs, so final decision really comes down to the person.


Note that almost all of these headphones are near the $300 mark, but that they can often be found cheaper refurbished.
