This is an excellent point to make! Bose has always been good about allowing their users to just hang out with the ANC turned on for as long as you’d like, even with no music playing.
I’m not someone that often has to do that, as I don’t do a lot of plane travel, but it is a nice bonus feature to have.
I’m sort of amazed that Sony still hasn’t updated the 1000X to allow users to adjust the auto shut-off, with how feature-rich those headphones are otherwise.
Thank you for the reading and for the comment!
