Thanks for these. But in your comparison chart you wrote that both Q30 and Q35 have 2 mics for phone calls, yet it should be 2 and 4, respectively, as far as I know… Because Q35 supposedly has 2 mics on each ear cup.
I double-checked the product page now that is available, and it states that the Q35 has “2 microphones with AI-enhanced uplink noise reduction”. I guess there could be more microphones used for noise cancellation for what you hear, but it looks like only 2 microphones are utilized for phone calls (for what the caller hears).
I tried this test again spinning the headphones around a full 360. When the headphones are facing away from my mouth (and the headband is facing my mouth), my voice was still somewhat filtered, but not as strongly as when my voice was coming from the left and right.
Wearing the headphones backwards (left cup on my right ear) also causes my voice to be filtered significantly, so there seems to be a “sweet spot” that, when worn properly, does a good job of focusing on your voice and muffling out other noises in the room.
Like most headphones and even Jabra headsets I’ve used, it will still pick up some sounds in front of my face, such a typing on a keyboard.
I did another test by placing a Bluetooth speaker in front of me on my desk playing music at a medium volume. While I could still hear the music in my test recording, the microphones seemed to at least reduce the volume of the music somewhat compared to my voice.
