Found 30th Jan 2015
I think this is a great deal. I bought these from Amazon.de last month for a tiny bit more but since found these even cheaper on .es!

Much much cheaper than in the UK, plus returns policy is the same.

Both colours available. I have the white ones.

Comes to €257.73 including delivery which at the time of posting converts to £197.97 according to google. Factor in a couple more pounds for dodgy exchange rates and whatever fees your card provider charges I suppose.

These are really really good for commuting as it cuts out almost all the droning from trains and stuff. Sound quality isn't quite as good as the B&W P5s in my opinion but that's only in a silent room. Otherwise these are far superior.

Top notch noise active noice cancelling! One of the best for travelling especially on a flight. The only downside is the sound quality is just average and a bit artificial. I won't consider this if I use it indoor, but for outdoor this really can't goes wrong.

Great price. Paid £8 more due to exchange rate from amazon.es a few weeks back after my pair of QC15's were stolen. Mine also happened to be delivered from Amazon's Dunfermline depot so would hope anyone else who buys has them delivered form a UK depot too.

These are great headphones - I picked up the £219 deal over Christmas and used them on a ton of flights in Jan15 and they were awesome. Using them also as every day headphones in the office as well as the mic for Skype calls etc and this works well as well.
Definitely worth grabbing IMHO

Shane no bluetooth

Don't know what to press lol don't want to click on Prime! How much is the delivery charge? Cheers in advance

Got some from es too. Great.

Although the in line remote does work with my iPod classis

Anyone else have this?

Amazing earphones

wish it was wireless.

Just purchased...no idea how but email confirmation saying £201.19. If these develop a fault what do I do? Never bought abroad before. Also to above comment my truesound in-ear headphones don't work on my classic 160GB

Just ordered @£201.19 anyone know what to do if they break?

I haven't used Amazon.es before but with Amazon.de, you return it in the same way as if you were in the UK. Just make sure you translate the website so you know which buttons to click.

Thanks B...I've got a bose outlet near me surely with proof of purchase they would take it on.

bose outlet wont be as cheap as this

bose have a new wireless range out

Heat - good price.
However, for an even better bargain consider the AKG 490NC - I bought a pair after trying out the Bose and could not tell much difference in sound quality and the Noise Cancellation was more or less the same. The AKG are almost half the price.

I am in contact with them, they tell me it "should" work. I have tried on two with no success. Although it works on my iphone so they are not faulty, torn on whether to return or not...

Love these headphones, they are the first thing I pack for a flight to kill off engine noise to a minimum, plus really help on the screaming kids and constant PA announcements!! They are a great fit too, ive worn them on 8-9 hour flights with no probs, when I first got them though I felt like my ears were having major problems as it almost puts more pressure on your ears (hope that makes sense) If you travel a lot (train or plane) these are amazing. Also putting them on ensures the person next to you wont talk to you!!! haha

I was wondering if anyone would recommend these or something else, for travelling on the underground tube system, it's hard to hear audio from my earbuds down there, and everyone seems to be wearing either these or beats. I don't plan to use them to fly, just commute to work.

Anyone tried the in ear noise cancelling headphones they do, Bose QC 20i's?

My Sony NC headphones are finally giving up the ghost after years of saving me from ambient noise, considering what to replace them with. Really like the thought of in ears as it means I could use them more often (won't wear cans out on the street/gym/etc and often leave them for short flights/Ryan Air/etc), but not sure if losing the physical isolation the cans offer will render them significantly less effective.

Been waiting for a deal on these - ordered, thanks a lot!

I use these for the tube and it's great. You hardly hear the tube once you're on it, and you can have the volume reasonably low and still hear the music clearly. It's a bit strange when you're on the platform and you can see the train coming but can't hear much of it.

Its £201.19 as you used Amazons own currency converter, your card wont be charged any fees. Depending on what card you use sometimes its cheaper to opt for paying in euros and let your card give you an exchange rate but fees may also apply.

If it breaks simply contact Amazon es, you can use English. They will pay for returns on faulty goods. You could also contact Bose and ask them if they will cover the warranty in the UK as I know SONOS do when buying from Amazon.es.

Hot. Good headphones, good price.

cheers will look into it

Great saving for some but £200 still seems like a lot to spend on headphones.

Just ordered these @ £212 due to delivery option, which is still an amazing deal.

As for warranty these come with a global warranty so its all good.

Unless its windy - somehow they manage to actually amplify the wind!

pibpob, the main reason I use these is for the noise cancel and the Goldring's are no where near as good for this.

I tried both the QC 25's and the QC 20i at the Bose Store in Regent Street just before Christmas.

I thought the sound quality of the QC 25 was very good for the size of them. However even though they were small, they were not particularly portable. At least not compared to the QC 20i whose noise cancellation works considerably better on my ears. It might be because I was wearing glasses but the QC 25 reduced the London traffic noise substantially but the QC 20i practically eliminated it, turning loud London buses and their diesel engines into electric vehicles. Apply some music and the effect feels like you're looking through a steady cam with your own soundtrack in your own personal music video. It's a strange effect.

I bought the QC 20i, although I'm concerned about the longevity of the wiring attached to the bottom of the power unit. It looks like it might fail a few years down the line.

But they're supremely portable and kill ambient noise and look discreet - which is exactly what I want them for. They also have the feature allowing you to turn the noise cancellation down essentially turning them into hearing aids - so you can hear even with them in. That's a strange experience too!

I hope this helps you with your decision.

edit: Sound quality - they're both really very good but not £200-300 good, just £50 good. But that's not why people buy them, they're ubiquitous on planes and trains for a very good reason

edit2: Awesome deal

Are they really not as good? If so I won't recommend them. I should seek out a pair of the Bose ones and compare.

I have the QC15s and I love them. is it worth upgrading to the 25s?

Euro QE .. here we go

Not really, no. They can work with a flat battery - but you really wouldn't want to do that as the sound quality is then abysmal. But I suppose abysmal is better than nothing? They look a bit better. I had the choice of either, the 25s being £30 more expensive - and I`m satisfied. I would feel that I wasted 200 notes if I "upgraded".

DON'T pay for the more expensive shipping option. Just go for the standard 3-5 day shipping. I ordered mine from Amazon.es on Tuesday pm, received the dispatch notice Wednesday am, with a delivery estimate of the Thursday, and BOOM, it did arrive on Thursday before lunch. Label says 24-hour delivery from the UK. Proof that if Amazon.co.uk has the stock, they dispatch it from the UK warehouse.

Amex charged me £199.xx after all the foreign transaction fees, etc. BARGAIN.

Thanks, I'm really tempted to get the 20i's now. I didn't realise the Bose store let you try the 20i's, assumed not as they are in ear. Think I'll pop in and give them a shot next time I'm passing.

Great price against retail, but even though the noise cancelling is excellent they are totally average headphones.

Senheisser and Definitive Technology are both bringing out wireless noise cancelling headphones soon, might be worth waiting

You're welcome. Yes, they'll let you try the 20i's as they had a tray with several unopened (presumed single-use) ear buds in them. Don't accept someone else's mankey earbuds! They're surprisingly comfortable.

I still have my doubts about longevity - clearly the lithium battery won't last long in ten years time and the wiring might give out. But other than that, they're better than the QC25's for what I want them for. I already have a pair of Sennheiser HD595's if I want headphones.
