Which consumer law exactly specifies a 2 year period? After 6 months it's up to you to prove a fault was there when purchased...
John Lewis are excellent in this regard imo, they don't ask many questions and is a very easy and quick process to get a refund or exchange. I've dealt with many a company who have not been as accommodating despite 'UK consumer law'.
Probably sit on them within a day

They have them on the trial stands in JL when it’s open. I wasn’t impressed with the quality. As mentioned outdoors in sunshine only so pointless most of the time. I have lots of better looking sunglasses and all my earphones sound better than these.

Or I’d leave them somewhere haha
I suppose they're ok, providing it's sunny when you want to listen to music
Great for around the house
Snap them up at this price. Worth every penny.

I think it's EU consumer law, most UK companies have always done their best to hide these rights from their customers.
Tried these last year on a trial stand. Audio was ok’ish but the quality of the frame and lenses was appalling. Didn’t seem very well finished. Wouldn’t give £10 for that part of it.

Nice idea, badly executed. Voting cold.
Reviews were mixed for these
Tried these in Curry's PC World, They're surprisingly very good for what they are. An odd sensation but one I actually liked. These are perfect if you do a lot of Cycling and currently I'm getting into that with the current situation being as it is. If you were to go for these I'd strongly urge to ditch the stock lenses and get the Mirror/Rose Polarised Lenses that Bose do and they dramatically make them look a lot more nicer.

However I'm still officially waiting for them to dip below the £130 mark for me to bite on them. After all they're a nice to have but no where near essential enough to warrant the current price tag.

It’s not two year you’re right. It’s 6 years. Yes you’re also right bout proving the fault was Pre existing but every time ive has to use it, mentioning UKCL has changed CS view and approach and resulted accordingly.

JL are well known for often making it awkward for claiming on their guarantees. Lots of examples on lots of deals here.

I’m not say they would look to screw you over but they have done to lots of people. They are the amazing store they used to me and id prefer my chances with Amazon personally
Can't believe there is a market for these...
I like them, I did purchase on an impulse 😜 officially no lenses available for prescription but just got some transitions made at my local independent opticians I use.

They have a mic also so I find them great to use for work calls at times, build quality is fair but the sound is pretty decent for what they are. One con for me is in a busy environment they don’t really get much audio to you in my experience but equally could be my hearing - such as a busy road.

id recommend testing them before purchase and have a use case in mind.

There's a big difference between a guarantee offered in advance from a company well known for its excellent customer service, and one from a company who's given you one because you've recited some law to them.......

Yes there is. There’s also a big difference between a company offering a 2 year guarantee and finding out its a pile of dung when you come to claim.

Like I said do a bit of reading up and see how many have been let down by JL
Much like badpoet I got mine fitted with prescription transition lenses at a small opticians (Seen in Manchester) and have been wearing them daily. They look a little goofy when clear but it's more than worth it for the functionality. They're great as an out-and-about pair of headphones that you always have with you. I also use them for phone calls because they can remain paired to your phone but idle for something like 12 hours. It's far comfier to use the Frames for that than any other headphones that cover or block your ears. Audio quality improved recently as some update happened and enabled AAC instead of just SBC audio.
Seems a very niche product imo. Surely, for similar money you could pair sunglasses and separate wireless earphones of your choice and achieve better results?

It's an EU directive, not an EU law. It's not meant to be followed directly.
I'd look like blind fella wearing sunglasses around all day indoor and out doors lol
Just want to point out that the frame design is a timeless design and these look great with prescription lenses in them. Push the boat out and get some translation or extra active lenses for the best of both worlds.

I live in Denmark, it's law here and in most European countries.

Yeah but it's domestic law in several countries, not EU law. To be honest I don't know why the UK haven't implemented it properly, the main points of EU directives are supposed to become domestic law.
