Thanks to Wheresmylaptop on the deal hotukdeals.com/dea…716 that I found these on Amazon. They're more or less the same headphones but now with Bluetooth 4.1 so can go completely wireless for an extra £16, and can buy via Amazon.

bought the wired ones for the kids last year and suitably impressed with reducing plane engine noise sufficiently for them to enjoy their programmes. Not up to the standard of my QC35 but decent given the price paid. Just be aware of a slight lag on these bluetooth ones that can make audio/video slightly out of sink. Haven't found a way to correct this

If it's offline video you can sync the audio slower. I think sometimes with the right app you can do it via stream too, but it's fiddly.
I read somewhere that these are similar in sound to Bose but with a small price tag. could anyone confirm this please

How good is the noise cancelling and sound quality for the money? As you say wouldn't expect Bose quality, but for nearly a tenth of the price these are quite tempting. I wouldn't be using them for commuting, more for listening in the garden and drowning out noisy neighbours :-D

Saw some reviews on YouTube which convinced me to get them e.g. youtu.be/LJn…zhg
Mine are arriving tomorrow, so I'll update then.

​You've probably heard that from the deaf community.

Though I'm not a fan of Bose but you should probably give more credit to Bose engineering.

It probably sound similar to Beats however...

Edit: from understanding what costs goes into wireless, you would expect to pay double what a wired set sound like in terms of quality (that's if they don't cut any corners and dont add any mark up on marketing).
On the cutting corners and marketing front, you will need to read reviews of the people who have used it and know what they're talking about.

Eg I recently bought those anker Bluetooth headphones, and indeed they do sound like a sub £10-15 pair of wired headphones (decent budget ones like Xiaomi). But it doesn't really compare to the next bracket up. Unless of course one can't tell (or care) about the differences. Which again is perfectly acceptable.

I've been using it for a few hours now, and I'm very impressed. I like how it shows the battery status on the phone's notifications, my other Bluetooth headset didn't do that. Noise cancelling is excellent. If you don't listen to music and just use noise cancelling, you do hear a very faint white noise, also in low music volumes, but after a while it's not noticeable. I've used it on the tube, train, and bus, and right next to an air conditioner, it blocked out around 80 - 90% of it, which is great as I like to listen to my music in low volume. It also blocks out about 70% of of voices, which is a plus in the office. Comfort wise is about 9/10, very soft, light, and not too tight.
Thanks for the detailed review Big_L. I've ordered them too for delivery tomorrow - going away on holiday next week so for £40 I think they're worth a punt!
Mine arrived yesterday.
Only had time for a quick test last night, but first impressions were very good. The sound quality was better than I was expecting for £40; sounded a lot better than the £80 Sony bluetooth headphones that I've had for a couple of years. Didn't really get chance to test the noise cancelling, but I could notice the difference with it on and off. I'll try that a bit more at the weekend.
They felt comfortable enough, but a longer period wearing them will test the comfort more.
One question - I don't get the battery status on my android phone (Oneplus 3). What phone/phones are you seeing it on? Not a massive thing, but would be handy to have it.

I'm using an LG G3, and the status of the headphones are at the top.

I'm actually returning my headphones today as I noticed a half / 1 second delay when watching videos that matth5182 mentioned, which is a bit irritating for me.
