£40 delivery to Northern Ireland. What a joke
Just for those on the fence about the bose vs sony, I tried both and spent nearly two hours in Dixons trying them both, constantly swapping between the two! Probably looked like a bit of a prat to be fair...

The Sonys are amazing, sound quality and ANC are superb. The feature to just place your hand on the ear cup to pause the music and let outside sound in is simply genius.

However, I went for the Bose. Sound quality is also superb, and ANC is fantastic... I could barely tell the difference although I think the Sonys were ever so marginally better.

What sold me on the bose was that the inside of the ear cups are angled, which means the tips of your ears don't touch anything, whereas the Sonys are flat like most ear cups, so my ears, especially the tips, were touching the inside of the cups. Only very slightly, but it did make a difference, for me anyway, and I have small ears! My ears got a bit hot, and were less comfortable even after short periods.

The bose is also a bit lighter, the travel case is a bit more compact, and you won't have to put up with the worry about the dreaded issue of the band developing a crack.

I think anyone comparing the two would be more than happy with either set though. I almost went for the Sonys because of the touch feature, it was a tough decision.

This is a cracking price... Wish I'd waited!

No Google button though.
Second that - not cheap but the best noise cancelling I've ever experienced and can't do without mine for travelling or relaxing in an aural cocoon! Heat
Good price and great headphones. I bought these just before a 10 hour flight and couldn't believe how well the noise cancelling worked.

Although with the new model out, maybe we can expect lower prices in the coming weeks?

Reduced because the QC35 II are out now. I've got a set of the new ones and they are amazing!

Just google assistant
Crap sound quality though.. would opt for the Sony personally.
Sony’s seem to have issues with plastic on them breaking

No issues with mine and they've been on 6 long haul fights. Best sound quality by far. Bose are quality pieces of kit mind.
I always liked bose q.v. 35 but the Sony’s are on a different level ...
Heat for the deal. Was going to get a pair of these until I read the reviews stating that although the sound is good they pale compared to sony or sennheiser. Was going to get the sony but they DO have build issues. Opted for AKG in the end but a part of me really wanted these Bose and still does!
Bought a couple of tellies from RGB in Loughton back in the day, including my last CRT a 28 inch Sony and first ever flat panel a 32 inch 'HD ready'' Panasonic around 12 years ago so I'd have it ready for Sky HD and Germany 2006 the following year.

Very fond memories of a decent retailer back then, alas they're Euronics now shame

Which sony model?
These are great at ANC but don't even come close to the 1000x for sound quality and even better ANC and feature set.

Sounds like if you haven't got an android phone the new model is pointless.

Going to try these and the Sony's next week and if it's close I'll get the most comfortable pair and judging by the reviews that's the Bose.

Deffo, and if you care for audio quality over everything else, P7 Wireless are the way to go (£300 price range).
Cheers Guys

These are magic. You can use them wired too.

Apt-X sounds great tbh depending on the wireless headphone used.
But Bose got much better warranty
Wouldn't recommend at all, sound quality is mediocre. Bought the audio teknica ones
Don't forget beats studio 3 out soon also. Just bought the new version of these though.
ANC is crap, I have them and they don't block much out at all. You'll still hear people talking, you'll still hear cars and machinery.... only seems to block out low pitched drones. The sound quality is also just okay... nothing special and the highs really hurt the ears, they are so harsh.

I would not recommend them and you hear the Plastic creek with is annoying. I'd also say stay away from the Sony's as they are so uncomfortable, if you want to wear the headphones for hours at a time... the Sony's just aren't an option.

I'm interested in trying the new Beats, I loved the feel of the Studio Wireless 2's, but the ANC sucked worse than the bose and the audio wasn't anything special either.
Must. Resist...
Guys, for those of you who are comparing these Bose headphones to the Sony mdr 1000x model may be pleased to know that the 1000x have been redesigned and updated to an even newer model the WH-1000XM2. They have just been released by Sony and going off the initial reviews, they are fairly hard to beat. They are on amazon roughly the same price as the 1000x (£325) , for those that are interested !
As said above. seems like there might be issues with voices being too loud, i.e. not as good as qc20

community.bose.com/t5/…388

I've got qc20 which are lovely.
Bad for audiobooks in quiet areas. I could hear the noise cancelling noise whilst listening in my room. But is so good whilst walking in loud areas though.
I've got a pair and they are awesome. Ideal for commuters
Bought these from Amazon.de and was charged £263 after £ to € conversion. Cancelled the order this morning and bought these instead - £4 cheaper and from the UK. It was a toss up between these and the MDR1000X's, but went for these because I'll primarily use them for work; that means I'll be using them 8 hours+ a day so for me comfort is more important than sound quality and ANC.
I have these and use them every day. My favourite bit of audio tech by a long way. Very comfortable, great sound, great noise cancelling. My very own portable audio oasis.

I bought a pair of the new Sony M2 in the US last week and they are stunning. I extensively trialled both the 1000X and these Bose in a Best Buy out there, using my own audio sources (just Spotify on my phone) and found the Sony better in every way....and the M2s are even better still, so personally I'd get them, but £60 is a big of a difference in price, and the Bose are still good value.

30 hour battery life on the new M2s too, nearly double the 1000x.

38 comments in and no-one has done the classic (boring) Bose = Buy Other Sound Equipment. This is a first.
I love my QC35's and the Google Assistant on the Mk.2's does nothing for me. Heat.
