For me is Sony MDR-1000x the most wanted headphones...

I've never used the Sony's before so I cannot vouch for their noise-cancelling capability but they are the exact same price as the Bose QC35's and seem to get good reviews so if we could get a drop with a good price, I'd be willing to give them a go. Hard to beat the Bose reputation and sound quality though.

I had not heard about the Sony. I wish they had been tested more thoroughly in the Wirecutter tests (they get one brief mention way down the article).

The Sony's have been reviewed by numerous people, sites and tech youtube channels. They get just as high marks in noise cancelling and higher than the QC35 by many. The sound is in particular with the QC35 as well by many reviews as well. Sound is obviously subjective. So try them both and see which you prefer. The Sony and QC35 are probably the two best out right now. Youtube has many reviews where they pit the two against each other. Good luck

I'd love to try both of them, in parallell, while travelling on an airplane. I have a terrible tinnitus when travelling by plane so the noice cancelling effociency is more important than the other "nice to have" feaatures..:

Try buying them both from amazon at the same time. Then send back the one you don't like. Or send both back for that matter. Such a hassle free way to compare two similar products

I have tinnitus all the time :-(
I am sadly part of the 15% of the population that has that syndrome on a permanent basis. On some days it's perfectly OK and barely audible, and on some others, boy-oh-boy. Plus I travel lots of time per year for the job.... By plane! So definitely the fates are not smiling on me on that front.
Noise cancelling definitively helps while traveling; I use an older Bose QC3 pair of headphones and even that is a godsend. Would love to upgrade however as it's showing its age...
Thanks to @Bluetoothguy also, I will seriously consider the Sony.

Thanks for the great info!!! I will now consider the Sony when I upgrade (see my reply to @peji70 below).
However right now I'm considering the 'wired' version of the Bose headphones, AKA QC25, just because they take regular AAA batteries. I always prefer user replaceable batteries to internal ones, which can't be changed when they start losing charge holding capability.
Yes it's wired, but it's not a show stopper for me, and there is always this: https://www.amazon.com/Wireless-Bluetooth-Adapter-QuietComfort-Headphones/dp/B01MTQGY69

The Sony's come with a cord of your battery dies. Simply plug them in and yourself good to go. You can keep the cord in the case for when you need them.

Good to know, but what I mean is, I prefer AAA because after a couple of years, internal batteries start losing the ability to hold long charges, and you either change your equipment altogether, or you have to start surgery on your equipment if you want to change the battery (you have to open the equipment, sometimes un-solder stuff, etc.). That is, if you find an OEM replacement internal battery.
The battery on my QC3 is starting to lose its wind, and Bose replacement batteries are frikking expensive. There are clone batteries, but they have bad reviews.
It's same as smartphones, I'll never understand why they switched to internal batteries to save a couple of millimeters. Or, rather, yes I know; it's called planned obsolescence I guess.
