I doubt they are going to do anything with the headphones portion at all. Like many have speculated, I believe they are more interested in the streaming service.

The Bose ones are clearly the best out there in terms of the noise canceling process/sound. I have a decent pair from Able Planet or whatever that were like $90, but if you want to listen to your music on the go with great sound (rather than having to crank them to the nth or hear a lot of outside noise), then Bose's $300 pair are probably the right way to go.
Sound isolating >>>> noise cancelling

By a fair bit IMO

Yeah, noise canceling actually affects the waveform itself. Sound isolation doesn't introduce any artifacts and blocks out noise naturally. Sound isolation >>>>>>

One method that also seems to work really well is making a small incision on your ear's foreskin, about 1mm from your eardrum. I tried this method and noticed that bass levels are much higher.

So what you're saying is, if you're on the fence regarding headphone preference,
self mutilation is the way to go

I agree, everyone should circumcise their ears. The gods of music will not admit you into their rock heaven if you don't undergo the proper ordinances (ear circumcision, head-banging baptism, attending a weekly organized skanking, etc.) while alive on Earth.
