See my review of the Nokia on Amazon. In short - don't buy it. It's build quality is very poor. Am looking to buy the Sennheiser myself now.

Nokia BH-905

Go for Nokia BH-905 which is now available for < $150.00. I had Bose QC15 but wanted a bluetooth. I went for Nokia BH-905i but returned it after it developed noise in one ear piece. Now I have Sennheiser MM-450 and Nokia BH-905. To be honest neither MM-450 nor BH-905i are that good as to justify their price tag. between the two I found Sennheiser very easy to fold, lighter and what i really like about it is that it even fits into pant pockets. I also found it more comfortable.
Unfortunately, noise cancelling in both is ordinary, no comparison to Bose, for example.

I am happy with Nokia BH-905 because there is not much difference between 905 and 905i, except in the price. Rather I found 905 noise canceling a notch better than its later incarnation, possibly because of extra padding.

Hello Wadood
I was curious your thoughts on which headphone (Sennheiser MM-450 or Nokia BH-905) has better microphone. I am torn between the two but have no way to test either. Please feel free to email me directly as i am not sure if i will be notified of response. Thanks for your prompt response

Bose QC15 and Nokia -BH905i

I have Bose QC15 and Nokia -BH905i
Sound quality is pretty much the same
BH feel softer on the ears, Bose does not feel as comfortable with this ugly big speakers.
When you run on a treadmill Bose sucks big time because of the cable moving in front of you. With BH 905i I don't have that problem.
Also is much easier to travel with BH-905I, You don't have to look for that ugly long cable getting stuck on a doorknob or someone's seat.
Be careful for fake Nokia BH 905 On eBay
Always look for genuine
The fake ones cost $50-$90
The genuine cost 200-350
I've paid for mine
Bose QC15 $400. *** ( I regret this)
Nokia BH905 $250. ********
Hope this helps.
Thanks
