Any one with any experience think these are worth the extra £45?

They are amazing I have them... Don't need a battery to use unlike other one... They are a life saver on a flight esp if there is a screaming baby near u as u won't hear it! I completely forget I'm flying when I'm watching a movie!

Better looking than qc15 for sure.

Bass is stronger in qc15, but everything else qc25 is slightly better. Certainly more comfortable

Best for travelling! But sound quality is just okay. If u travel a lot this is highly recommended. If u use it at home, they are much better choice

I travel a lot and appreciate the NC feature but I don't think I want a compromised sound, not at this price any way.

Excellent price - normally around £260 and you don't often get big discounts on these...

im also struggling with this, which ones to get QC15 or QC25 £45 difference??

No heavenly sound? No way!

I am preferring the style of the 25 and the battery less working but with reduced bass and £45 premium????

The music is average at best for the price but for noise cancelling there excellent.

Don't forget it is still working after the battery dies so this is a plus feature.

The NC is slightly better, SQ is slightly nicer in mid & treble, bit more details.

If u travel a lot the Top notch NC does helps you to listen more compare to any other headphones.

American Airlines had the 15's with a tablet and I did think the volume was low but I put it down to the tablet being restricted??

I listen to a lot of metal so the 25's being bass light is putting me off a little.

25s are far better for noise cancelling and noise bleed. I couldn't live with the 15s and returned them but bought the 25s on holiday (cost me just under £200) and love them

Awesome headphones, I travel and work in a noisy office when on site this allows me to go into my own world.

Worth every penny in my eyes and I paid full price

Went for the QC15 for £170 in the end, don't feel the extra £45 justifies the QC25 imo

Bought these a couple of months back and I think they sound amazing especially with poweramp app on my htc. Noise cancelling is top notch too. Sorry never had the qc15 so can't compare

Think i will go for the 25s

Just put a JL price match in, worth a try.

Now then which colour to choose?

in terms of sound quality these or Bowers & Wilkins P5 Series 2?

Depends on your use but if for regular travelling the extra 45 quid is a no brainer. 25s so much better IMO

Smaller form factor, better sound, better noise cancelling, better electronics and work without battery (in emergency), compared to QC15.

Basically, yes, worth the extra.








REVIEW:
Bose has somehow managed to improve upon awesome. ...The proof is in the silence. In a head-to-head sound-off, the QC 25's ANC was quieter than the QuietComfort 15s and blocked out more background noise. The QC 25s immediately rendered my colleagues' conversations virtually mute. I could still make out remnants of sentences when I switched to the QC 15s.

The biggest difference between ANC on the QC 25s and the QC 15s is what I like to call the vacuum effect. Wearing the QC 15s can feel like you're on an airplane preparing for ascent or descent. It's not painful, but the pressure can be disconcerting. I didn't feel any of that with QC 25s; there was only serene silence.


If you read on, the QC25 also offer improved sound quality.

Thanks, mind is now made up

JL wont price match

"Therefore, on this occasion I regret that I cannot match the price offered by Exceptional AV as they trade under a different store name to their website. If you would like to view more information about Never Knowingly Undersold and our pricing you can do so on our website."

BS if you ask me!

Black QC25 are now an extra £50.

Was just about to decide between these and QC15s, too.


Thomann has slightly more expensive with 3 years thomann warranty free delivery.
thomann.de/gb/…htm

Cheers. Looked amazon.de before.
Total incl delivery from Amazon is Rechnungssumme: GBP 228.61
Would prefer Thomann with 3 years warranty for the same price. And yes e-Glob is slightly cheaper.

£204.99 … £204.99 herehttp://www.eglobalcentral.co.uk/bose-quietcomfort-25-acoustic-noise-cancelling-headphone-black-en.html


If they get shipped from outside the EU, then you'll have duty and VAT to pay and there may be issues with the warranty so Amazon DE might be the safer option....or Thomann (ordered from them before without any problems)

I got the QC25 for £208, after exchange fees from my card co, from Amazon Spain about 3 weeks ago.

Great timing - was thinking of grabbing these in the US when I go in a few weeks but for this price (£215) I can use them on the flight over as well.
How to decide where to get them from!

OK, order from Exceptional - thanks again OP!

I went for the QC20i

They are in-ear, so better for people with glasses. Also much easier to fall a sleep on a plane/train.

I have these (QC25). Used them for several transatlantic flights. I wouldn't travel without them now. Superb.

I had the P5 series 2 and exchanged them at JL for these. P5 have much better sound, but they are headphones with different uses. I use mine primarily commuting so the QC25 made more sense for the noise cancelling.

If you're using them at home, P5's any day of the week,

Am I missing something here.
They're adding £50 on if you want black headphones. That makes them near enough the same price if I was to get them at JL.
