The 25's will continue to work with a flat battery too, it's only the noise cancelling that will stop.

I got a set of 25's for christmas, if you're on the fence, buy them. They're outstanding.
If anyone is interested both the 25 and 35 are on clearance at QVCUK. The 25 is £169 and the 35 is £259, plus you also get 3 easy payments and free P&P.

Also - if you just fancy some peace and quiet (you don’t have to listen to music ) just put them on and flick the ‘noise cancelling’ switch, ( you can also unplug the cable ) instant bliss.

The 35's are wireless for a start.

35s V1 are bluetooth, wireless (but you can wire the headphones with the wire provided) and noise cancelling.
35s V2 exactly the same but with voice assisstance.

Will the 35’s not work on a flat battery with the lead plugged in then

So the 35s will work with the lead plugged in, like a normal pair of ear/headphones, regardless if the battery is flat. The purpose of the battery is to have the noise cancelling aspect, of course, if this is flat the noise cancelling will not work.
With many phones now removing the headphone port, I wonder if I’ll regret buying these when I next upgrade.

These phones usually come with an adapter.

Also, look at the Airmod bluetooth adaptor if you want to make the QC25s bluetooth.

£70 for the adapter, may as well buy a pair of QC35s
Are the 25 II's better and worth the extra ?

My opinion is the 35s are slightly better. The 25s are good but the wire isn't long for me but don't get me wrong they are still good and produce good sound quality.
They're showing £169.

Android version is 159
Serious question, I usually spend no more than £30 to £50 ish on a set of headphones, is the sound quality through these significantly better than a pair of Sony's to justify the price hike. Or am I comparing apples and oranges...?

Generally you'd be purchasing these more for the noise cancelling feature than sound quality. Hope that helps.

You pay for what you get with headphones generally, I bought a paid of £100 Audio-Technica ATH-M50X, and the sound difference was very noticeable compared with cheap ones. Expensive ones often come with a lead that disconnects, so no need to bin the whole unit if the lead breaks. I didn't bother with noise cancelling as I use them at home.
Had these for a few years. They are absolutely excellent on an aeroplane, the noise cancelling is brilliant. Heat.

If you have a John Lewis or Bose etc shop nearby i would say pop in and give them a whirl. Nobody can hear what you do, you may love them or wonder why the price is so high and walk out happy with your cheaper alternatives. Ive had two pairs of Beats and found them overpriced heaps with no better sound than alterntives a third of their price. I'm waiting on a price drop on the QC35 as the sound and noise cancelling was fantastic when i tried them, sadly the QC25 are no good for me as being tall and using cabled headphones is a receipe for destruction.

Can't speak for the 25s but I've had QC2s, the model before the model before these, and they still work great I've promised myself as soon as they break I'll treat myself to new wireless ones but they keep going. A good thing about these things is that when the ear pads wear out or the cable gets a bit crackly you can very easily replace them. cheaper headphones never seen to last very long.
still on QC1
I'd get these if they had a nice fancy dock to sit them on. But they don't, and I hate leads!!
Forgive me for my ignorance - it's not my intention.. however these are £169 at Currys, surely this isn't THAT much of a deal? Unless I'm missing something.

I'm looking for a new pair of headphones but in no rush to purchase - surely this price isn't worth biting at for someone in my position?
Just remember they don't use AptX so there's a bit of delay which makes them less well suited for games and movies. I got myself a Bowers and Wilkins px for the slightly reduced delay. These sound great though!

The wire isn’t long for you? You could get a longer wire... would that change your opinion?

Thanks for all the responses.

My local JL is Kingston, will certainly give some of the more premium brands a try. I do like the sound of a modular design and admit that with price I pay the quality of the parts is not the best.

Got both now, so dodged that problem quite easily lol
Have the QC20 as prefer more discret but have tried the cans as well. Bose always seem a bit 'warm' musically so they're not an audiophile number one. You buy these for the NC which is very good - plane or train you have your own muted world. It's not silent so don't expect 100% NC some always get through.
If anyone is interested both the 25 and 35 are on clearance at QVCUK. The 25 is £169 and the 35 is £259, plus you also get 3 easy payments and free P&P.

Headphones will work with any phone with a headphone jack, but Apple/Android refers to the controls on the cable. Controls on Apple cable won't work with Android phone. Never been an issue for me.

Agree - these really come into their own on a flight. Makes flying Ryanair almost bearable.

With iPhones you get a jack adaptor anyway just cos the jack has been removed you can still use normal headphones plugged into it. Comes free with the phone
