LocalFound 24th Apr 2016
Been after some of these for a while, popped into the Clearance bargains store in Stanley and found these some are Refurbished but some are brand new.

Thought £139.00 was a great price for these selling at £200

i know its a local place so not sure if its any good for anyone they had about 10/15 pairs

Isn't the Bose site in the outlet near Ashford, Kent, operated by Bose.
I think Clearance Bargains (stores) are Argos clearance shops?

Your right, my mistake
I tried on a set of these, the noise cancelling is incredible!
I have a pair of these and they are great. The noise cancellation is superb. Well worth the money. Worth the original price.

Does that noise include the awful rendition of 'music' that these things purport to portray?
good noise cancelling, but lousy sound
Too bad thr in-ear variant, QC20, aren't as cheap, £269.95 -> £229.95:

Agreed about the sound output, but that's just the drawback to tweaking the external sound against the music output. I find these great on the train and in the office - I can have my white noise generator at half volume as opposed to full volume, with zero effect with my older earbuds. Really happy with the silicone in-ear vs this deal's on-ear baking my ears.

You should possibly stick to the £9.95 headphones...
Thanks for the heads up, I was thinking of going for this but a bit concerned by the reviews stating the right hand headphone (that folds up) fails easily! & not sure how receptive Argos Clearance would be to get it sorted...

they have a 12 month warranty with the receipt, Argos clearance are good at sorting things out in the past, also i know a few people who haven't had this issue so i assume its complaints shout the loudest...
Bose give a two year warranty as long as the Seller is an authorised Bose retailer. Excellent price. I had no problems when a former pair had slight problem and they sent me a new pair straight away on advanced product replacement with the price held against my creditcard.
Sorry is this Stanley West Yorkshire, or Co Durham please?
These are awesome, wear them all day in the office for 8+ hours to cover colleagues chatting, phone calls and whatsover
This argos clearance isnt a deal its store specific voted cold

I've always been told that noise cancelling headphones only really cancel out more of the 'droning' sound of background noises e.g. aircraft noise. Do they completely cancel out chatting etc (and even without music playing)?
Finally tried mine out on a plane the other week. They are incredible. The roar of the plane just completely disappears and you can watch a film perfectly.

You don't realise how loud a plane is until you take them off again - it's deafening!

I think you might find he thinks the ones from Poundland are better value.

​Of course, you could buy 139 pairs from Pound land for this price! oO

spending over £80 on speaker is bonkers IMO

Just tested and you lost the bet.

I win so should I PM you my address so you can send me a pair of these Bose now?

For my use (listening to speech, radio etc) my Apple Earpods that came free with an iPod sound clearer and nicer than this.
This is an excellent deal if you can get it given the retail price at Bose is £249.95

Bore off and feel free to enjoy all the background noise you like.
Anyone checked the Walsall store for these?
Does anyone else feel pressure on their ears when listening to them in a quiet environment? does it take a little getting used to?

ordered for £200 from Sonic Direct, got the iphone version by mistake. The middle key works for skipping tracks, pausing but I can't adjust the volume. Android cable is £21 from Bose but I can live with it.

Sound quality is superior to anything I've tried. I've wanted a predecessor to this since I was 18....15 years ago when I tried them at an airport. Was blown away then and I'm blown away now.

If you like singing to yourself it becomes a very eerie feeling that you're in a horror film and your voice has been taken away. It's great at keeping the kid's noise muted, I can now relax while my house is turned upside down. Admittedly it works better with background noise when you're not playing music, but once the music comes on any talking isn't noticeable.
