HUKD isn’t about one brand v the other. It’s about the price of the specific item - and this ain’t bad.

Having said that, my experience is that the Bose are Better than Sony overall. The tiny difference in NC performance is outweighed by dual device connectivity, increased comfort and more useful user tailoring via the app.

Have Bose stopped making/selling the qc25?


I think they stopped making them, my leather cups came loose got a full refund as no replacement was available. Got 700 they v good but pricey but the benefits v QC 25 was well worth it.
If we're running comparison, I would rather know how the B&W PX7 fare against Bose / Sony. They look awesome and the regular P7 sounded awesome too.

Check out reviews on Amazon and headfi.org

Apparently the PX7 looks great, sound good, but are uncomfortable for extended listening and have flaws.

These Bose suck as they don't even have AptX, let alone AptX-LL - so audio will be out of synch when watching movies etc.

So no good for watching films and shows on the train for example - which I imagine is a standard use case for these, being ANC headphones, and traditionally for travel.

Bose haven't kept up with the times.

Sony, Sennheiser and B&O will be superior. The former two are comparable in price.

I'd probably wait for a hopefully more comfortable revision to the PX7. I do like what B&W do, even though I've never owned any of their products.

Also the new Sennheiser Momentums are out.

I was impressed by the sound quality of the original Momentum Wireless.

Much did you pay for the 700's?


I got from U S at half price, employee discount, have a friend who works with them

What headphones would you personally recommend that have AptX, AptX-LL and also ANC? I'm looking to move away from my QC35's to something with those codecs, but that also has ANC for commuting and when on flights.

I use the Definitive Technology Symphony 1s which have that, as well as USB passthrough (you can listen using the inbuilt DAC via a USB connection) not that I use that feature to be honest.

Battery life isn't great though. Not the most comfortable or portable - although I do wear them most of the day most days.

And the ANC won't be as good.

They were lower than £150 at one point on Amazon

Now discontinued. But they may come back in stock. You can try eBay too.

amazon.co.uk/Def…3I/

They're one of the only options for me as I have large ears.

The Sony's don't work for me, the earcups are too small.

The Bose QC25 and so I assume QC35 as well were the most comfortable, but audio wasn't great, and they felt and looked cheap, and lack AptX I believe.

I was impressed by the Sennheiser Momentum Wireless, although the earcups were too small for me for extended listening.

The new Sennheiser Momentum have just come out:
amazon.co.uk/Sen…V9/

Tech specs here too:
en-uk.sennheiser.com/mom…ess

Bluetooth 5

They look like they may have larger earcups

I found their customer service excellent.

You can buy all spare parts (at least you could for the Momentum Wireless)

These support AptX HD for better than CD quality sound.

And support AptX-LL too.
whathifi.com/rev…ess

With over ear ANC headphones none seem to offer everything. Some lack codecs, some lack bluetooth multi point, etc.
I'd want both.

£100 off rrp? As long I remember rrp is £349.
Saying that i have been waiting for these to come down. Not a sort of person who likes to pay too much for a item.
Great pair though
Will wait till they come £250 or bellow

Was RRP not £399?! Oh dear, apologies.
I paid this price at Dixon’s at the airport, I upgraded from the Bose QC 35. Good deal

Says who? if a brand offers more and is cheaper, or the same price... it makes this less of a deal.

Anyway, no mention of the main reason for the headphones? the sound quality that comes with the noise cancelling. The Bose badly lack in that respect for me, then again have never liked the Bose sound, they are on a par with Beats and the like, the Sony drivers have a larger frequency response which means you hear more of the audio track. The Bose cut off in the low and high range.

These particular ones are also fugly, sack the designer.

We all have our own opinion though....before buying these or the Sony, go listen to them both for yourself is my advice for people looking for some.

Give this man a cookie. Finally some sense being spoken instead the utter drivel you usually get on these posts comparing another brand and consequently voting a deal down because they own something different.

The dual simultaneous connection of the Bose is the ovveridding factor for me. I can have my phone and tablet connected and answer incoming or make outgoing calls without any faff whilst watching my Netflix. Can't do that with the Sony even if they did sound a bit better and have slightly better NC

What does the temperature mean on a deal? The temperature indicates the opinion of the community on a deal: each member can give a positive vote ("hot") or negative (“cold") and their votes add up to give a higher or lower temperature. A deal with a high temperature is therefore acclaimed by the community: good value for money, best price for a given service, interesting offer. This temperature is subjective and indicative: you can often find an interesting deal for yourself even if the community did not rate it well, and vice versa. Remember, if you’re voting on someones deal it’s common courtesy to leave a polite comment, especially if you voted negatively.

From the horse's mouth.

Would "best price for a given service" not back up my point though? Its the best price for that product/service?

Would you vote cold on a half price Ferrari becuase the functionality is done a lot cheaper on a Renault Clio?

I just think arguing about what is the best product in that range is counter productive on a deal site as ultimately it is subjective. In this case I've tried both the Sony and the Bose and prefer the latter. That opinion is of course subjective so I would never expect anyone with a differing opinion to be wrong - therefore, saving £40 off RRP of this product should make this a good deal.

Firstly, comparing the Bose to the Sony isn't like comparing a Ferrari to a Renualt Clio

More like a BMW with an Audi

They're in the same segement and price range really.

To extend the analogy, the B&O H9 would be a segment up - such as a Porsche. They cost quite a bit more

Secondly, while plenty of stuff is subjective, the discussion can be useful.

I find some member's comments on goods really helpful, and to make an informed decision about whether I want to buy something.

See my comments regarding the Bose. For £40 more you can buy the Sennheiser which will likely have better sound quality, supports AptX HD and AptX-LL, and also supports bluetooth multi-point, unlike the Sony.

Personally it's what I'd buy, as the Bose won't be any good for watching media (the audio will be out of synch), and they likely won't sound as good.

Support or lack of support of codecs isn't subjective.

And being made aware of other models (many may not have been aware of the new Sennheisers) is also useful.

Also, comments regarding other alternatives does not mean that person voted cold.

I haven't voted on the deal.

It does meet my criteria that it seems to be the best price - but I don't see it as a great deal as returns could be a hassle with it being Amazon Germany, and if I were to spend £309 on headphones - spending £350 doesn't make much of a difference - I'm not going to feel that £41 in the long run, but will notice the difference in the headphones every day.

It's not a massive saving, and there are arguably much better options out there.

I'd go for the Sennheiser Momentums myself. But I need to see if they'll fit my ears.
