Based on using the bose-x for 8 years and the Zulu only briefly, I think they are probably comparable in performance, but the bose-x definitely wins on long flights. The other day I did a 7:10 nonstop flight and felt absolutely no discomfort from the Bose. Their price is obscene IMHO but for some totally weird reason nobody has yet made anything as good and as comfy.

The bluetooth feature is IMHO of questionable value, because the scope for listening to music in the air is limited - in any real flying scenario there is too much radio activity. I would not spend any money on it - unless one wants to use a bluetooth equipped satellite phone when airborne.
