Yup that is the ambient noise cancelling option, you can choose to let people's voice through or block all sound, all of them can do that. Very niffty option especially on the train, plane, subway, work etc...
Thanks, I didn't know that.

I have QC35ii, wh1000xm2, and now a pair of the b&W px on the way. Will be able to share some opinion on how the px compare soon.

I have the Sony MDR1000X and use them every time i fly, which is quite often. They are simply amazing and better then the BOSE QC25/35 in my opinion. Better sound and a bit louder too. Definitely worth the investment if you fly often i have sat directly next to screaming kids and heard absolutely nothing. PURE BLISS.....
+1, got the same and they're great at NC, video and tunes. Had Bose QC II before that.

A bit late to this party, but I just got a pair of PSB M4U2 and they are sublime.

From a sound quality point of view these are the best I've heard, and not by a small margin either.
I find them extremely comfortable too.

Haven't tested the ANC "in the field" yet, but seems to be reasonably good.
