Found 12th Sep 2014
The brand new Bose QC25 arrives in the UK on 15th September. I have been holding off on the QC15s and comparing against the PSB M4U2's (sound quality and no battery to listen to music)....

Now the QC25s are here - better design / sound and can work without battery all for the same price as the old QC15s. Currys though have a code for 15% off headphones bringing them down to £229.46 including free delivery. That's £40.49 off the list price of the brand new set.

I know this isn't for everyone, as they are expensive - but if like me you travel a lot then the Noise Cancellation on an airplane is a godsend!

Use code HEADPHONES15UNI122R at checkout to get the reduced price.

EDIT: New Code.
EDIT2: New Code again! Thanks jamo9000

I'm a sucker for BOSE headphones too. By the looks of the heat though a lot of people are not. Still thanks for posting heat added im buying them

Sound wise they will never match the high quality non NC headphones - you really want these for *the* best NC available...

Good find!

I only buy Bose products if I can buy them without the normal Bose UK Rip-Off price premium.

Bose QuietComfort 25: US list price = $299.95
Equivalent UK price = £184.37
Add on roughly 25% for import duty and VAT to find the price they should be in the UK = £230.46.

So the Currys' code counteracts the Bose Rip-Off pricing!

Thanks for doing the maths - yes I do often have a nose when I'm in the US - but it's always Airports and the BestBuy vending machines are price hiked too....

Brilliant find

Really good deal, I just ordered these. Thanks OP!

just tried this voucher code but doesn't seem to be working - I guess this has expired now?

Original Poster

Yep - just tried; "Sorry, that offer has now ended."

Joy!!

I've done some digging online and found that there is a new code for the same discount. The new code is HEADPHONES15UNI120Y - I've just ordered my QC25's from Currys website with this and it worked a treat.

I fly a lot with work and saw the QC15's for £230 in duty free just last week so to be getting the new QC25's for the same price with free delivery is a top result!

Updated post to reflect!

Thanks

I would say my 15's are one of the bet items I have ever brought, the noise cancellation is 2nd to non. I cannot reccomend them and thus the new version highly enough.

I agree, paid £230 for Qc15 a couple of years ago and love them. Although I was upset when I saw them for £145 in Comet during the closing down sale!

For anyone wishing they could afford these headphones but unable to shell out £230, take a look at the following:

http://www.7dayshop.com/products/7dayshop-headphones-active-noise-cancelling-headphones-with-aeroplane-kit-and-travel-case-7DAYADHF

They are a rip off of the bose QC15 and you will be astounded at how good they are for the money, they started out at under £20 but are now being sold for around £30. One guy in my office bought a pair and now 5 people have them, they appear to have ripped of the Bose engineering and are charging a Chinese price!

Hmm where are all the 'why spend £100s on headphones when £10 pair will do' or similar clueless posts and cold votes?

At that price point I will take your word for it. I've just ordered a pair of these.

..Don't be rude

Have some heat. Bose are expensive, but quality. Remember the old saying "you get what you pay for"
I have never been disappointed with Bose products.

If anyone is wanting noise cancelling that's IMO just as good, but for a 1/3 of the price look at the goldring ns1000's

Used them for 4 years now with no issues. Excellent on the plane, excellent at work (I work nights)

What I found useful was locating a factory outlet and they were doing QC20 for USD 199.99. The warranty terms are the same or at least that's what I was told in the store. I bought them and confirmed with Bose store in Westfield London about the warranty and they said as long as I had the reciept the warranty terms are as usual.

Just saying... If in US, have some time, locate a factory outlet

Picked these up a couple of weeks ago in the US for $300 and they're pretty damned good. I thought I'd got a bargain myself, this is a good price for anyone that can't do thst. They've only been available in the UK for just over a week, so you're getting the very latest tech.

I'd been looking at the QC15s but they'd got a lot of criticism for being fragile, Bose has certainly listened to that by replacing plastic parts with metal, they've also improved the lead. You can also now actually use them when the battery is dead. I managed to watch a few films on the flight home and almost forgot I was on a plane.

If you need decent audio and excellent noise cancelling then look no further.

Where did you bring them to? If you buy something, you have bought it. If you bring something somewhere, you brought it.

Just too big for me as I need something to fit in my laptop bag.I considered buying the in-ear version but I'm worried about the build quality of such things (I fly weekly so it's always in and out my bag) as I've gone through five pairs of headphones this year so far!

Not saying this is cold, but these are ridiculously priced. Check out the reviews on Head-Fi.org and youll see why. Rip off Merchants, go to Amazon and get yourself a pair of Audio Technica ATH M-50s for £80, reduced down at the moment.

£200 sound, for £80. Also none of that active noise cancellation crap that significantly damages sound quality, just passive used with well designed earmuffs and pressure from the design of the aluminium headband.

Jaycar pro monitor headphones from oz. Not active noise canceling but v similar design and only one tenth the price.

They fold into a supplied case about the size of a "..for dummies" book.

Considered the Goldrings NS1000. They get excellent reviews by what hifi and are only about £70 from Amazon but reviews on Amazon put me off them. Almost got the QC25 last week in the local Bose store and been looking for a deal - had decided to buying in duty free or the US but that would have been over £200 if you include US sales tax. Buying them here means it doesn't eat into your duty free allowance and I can wear on the plane over.

Top deal - thanks OP and thanks Robbostation for the code. Ordered and heated.....:D

Passive usually = Uncomfortable.
I have some Shure in ear ones. Awesome sound, but the noise inhibiting buds get all waxy and can be uncomfortable after a while.

Link please for the ATH M-50s!!!

been eyeing these up for a while now, but will take my chances and try to get an even cheaper set from the bose outlet in orlando when i go next week...

I bought QC25 from Currys last week for £229. Have tested both 15 & 25. For me 25 is better in all areas apart from bass. So I see no point to get a QC15 now.

But I refunded the QC25 yesterday. Don't get me wrong, it is a very good pair, it just it doesn't suit my needs as I have a bigger head size than average people so I don't feel that comfortable to use it as it generate too much hotspots for my ears areas and head area after wearing it a while. But though the noise cancellation is really good, it blocks nearly every low frequency noise to give you a very silence environments so you get to hear more. But the sound quality for me is just good but not great, when you compare to other headphone on other similar/cheaper price range. Eg. Senheiser Momentum over ear, Audio Technical M50X, ANC9

Thanks, will take note for future! Often my trips are the usual airport/office/restaurant/hotel routine!

Heat added - I have the qc15s and for planes there's nothing better! Their only flaw was stopping working when the battery was done, but as these fix that, I'm tempted to go for them! Anyone have both qc15 and these and can compare? Worth the upgrade?

As for the price it wasn't an easy option for most people to spend more than 200 on a pair of headphone. But you are talking about this brand - Bose, their stuffs are always pricey. But if this gives you a lot of values (comfort,light,noise cancellation) that other brands that couldn't give you, I think it is worth for it especially you have £40 off from the normal price and this pair just being released earlier this month.

Directly compare to M50 might not be fair, because QC25 is noise cancellation headphone and very light weight, the other one is a bit bulky but though gives you very good sound quality and value for money.It is like driving a Bentley and Audi A5, both are nicer cars but obviously different price range...

See your point, but what I am arguing is active noise cancellation simply isnt needed for most and is ridiculous to tag on such a premium price for the feature. Okay for the size difference, I wont argue that.

For me, sound quality is paramount. The ATH M-50s produce better all round sound (if the Slightest bit bass heavy), for 1/3rd the price. As I said, check out headfi.org, the most well respected headphone review website for Audiophiles, you will find many people saying the same thing.
