Confirmed as working, traded in some old iPhone headphones and for 159.00. Had to convince the manager that they matched sonicdirect, but a trip to customer services sorted that.

Thanks op.
You can also price match via web sales, just email the link to the product that you want them to match. can take 24-48 hours, so might not be worth risking if the match you are seeking is time limited, but usually works no problem.

Loks like Sonic Direct's price is now 199 white, and 214 black, but out of stock.
Iv had QC25 & Soundlink around ear headphones and neither compares to Sony high res headphones for sound quality
they do accept earbuds?
They accepted my earbuds yes.
Op where is the trade in offer?
Are you sure this will work online? It reduces the price paid to £229 when you add the promotion code for the trade in. Will JL not just refund £30 in that case? BTW they emailed me back within an hour to confirm that they will price match online

While I agree, Bose generally produce decent sounding headphones that are nowhere near the best at their respective price points, the selling point of Bose is their combination of high quality ANC without comprimising good quality sound (their passive pairs are a waste of time though). Their ANC tech is undeniably at the top of the pile, and they're one of the few brands able to implement it in a way that doesn't wreck the sound quality of the headphones themselves. For 90% of people I don't recommend Bose, but for people spending large amounts of time on planes or on the tubeo people who would rather listen at more moderate volumes while out and about without the distraction of ambient noise, or people who just wamt to block out asmuch exterior noise as possible without going to IEMs, the QC25 absolutely sit near the top of the pile.

Have these - as mentioned, you do not buy these for their sound quality, you buy because they are excellent at noise cancellation. One thing to be aware of is that you can buy 2 versions of these - one comes with a cable that works with android/samsung/windows phones the other comes with a ipod/ipad cable. If you buy the wrong one, you will find that the in-line cable controls may not work.

I have to use the tube but the tubeo sounds much better...
Amazing deal if you can get it. I have the Bose QC15's and they are amazing, so light and comfortable you forget they are on. And the NC is superb too. I understand the QC25 are even better in this regard.



Headphones are £169.99 here and if JL price match you should pay £40 less with the trade in

Just been thinking about this offer. The terms state : The offer is only available if the customer agrees to dispose of an old pair of headphones he or she already owns by entering the promotional code, and bringing their old pair of headphones to the Audio department next time they visit a John Lewis store. Now as I rarely visit a JL store, it might be a while before I take my cheap pair of headphones to them to trade in. In the meantime, they have deducted the £40 from the original purchase price. What would happen if I didn't take them in for a year or two??
Apologies the above price should be £189,99

Refurbished - not new and they don't have physical stores

Great price for these. I am always on the look out for Bose deals across the Amazon euro network! Camel is always a good shout for alerts! I'm after the new Bluetooth version for anything under 160! Let me know!

Totally, 100%, in fact it is actively encouraged by police. I was pulled over and given £100 in Ann Summers vouchers by the police because my headphones looked "awesome", the officers words, not mine.
Best noise cancelling headphone you can get for travelling.
But if you are looking for best sound quality, look elsewhere like B&O H8/7/6, Sennheiser momentum 2 wireless etc...
Great in the office to silence the hum of the AC and people chattering, you can listen to something very quietly while you work. They still pass through the sound of voices around you so you're not totally isolated.
Anyone know if these any good for sudden unpredictable noises like bangs etc. or just good for continuous noise, engine/fan/AC? Google seems to have mixed answers on this
these are over ear rather than on ear aren't they?

​I wondered this also....
also it says on the JL website...

"the retailer you're reporting has a high-street shop, and is not online only. (we don't match online-only or mail order businesses such as Amazon, ASOS or AO.com)"

so surely this wouldn't work?

The way active noise cancelling headphones work is that they essentially measure the frequencies of outside sounds and overlay a signal at an inverted frequency, thus cancelling out some degree of noise. Given that there is inevitably going to have to be delay as all this processing is done and the frequency produced, active voice cancelling obviously works best at counteracting continuous noise. It can reduce the audibility of sudden loud noises but it's very unlikely to cancel it out fully, so probably not you if you're after a serene experience at a gun range or fireworks display!

I work in the Unified communications sector. Recently I purchased in as an executive option a headset, called the plantronics UC focus. If you're using UC applications esp Skype for business. I'd say take a look at this option. Wireless with ANC and obstructed range of 2m unobstructed 30m. More business savvy and great in open plan offices. One of the execs who is trailing it for me has also commented on how it makes so much of a difference with his tinnitus. Of course I asked him to make use of mynoise.net/ to mask the high frequency of the ringing. But for a noisy floor to me it makes so much of a change.

Also energizer lithium batteries would be my go tos to power the anc on these cans. Higher amperage than present rechargeable and last a long time when not in use.
Excellent deal. I paid 240 for mine last week at the bose clearance outlet. I wish I had waited now.
Try Plantronics BackBeat Pro before buy this. Far better headphones for less money In my opinion. Bose quality it's not the same as they were before :-/

Which Sony did you have use?
Best phones for long haul flights without a doubt.

In the house etc, there are better for the money, but they come into their own on a plane or bus (or kids karate class, where mine get most use)
