Found 27th Feb
Looks like a good deal if you want Bose and you want noise cancelling and you want wireless/bluetooth. Trustpilot (for what it's worth) rates this shop highly.

I'm considering these so interested if anyone thinks there's a better set of noise cancelling, bluetooth headphones out there! Please share if you do!

I'm intrigued by the idea of a security feature. Maybe there's money to be made in inventing an aftermarket chinstrap?

Stuck between these and the 1000XM2's - hot price!
Oh you’ve kicked a hornet’s nest with that question.... Stand back and watch the melee..
hot from me
Go and listen to them somewhere like John Lewis. Noise cancelling headphones are great for flying etc but I find them a bit harsh for normal listening. These do have a great sound though but thought the buttons were a bit cheap for a premium product. Still giving heat for the price

Had the QC35s and got the sonys on offer. Have since sold the Bose. I much preferred the sound on the Sony. I think the Bose sound too flat
Hmmm....nice price but their lack of information on non uk mainland deliveries makes me very suspicious. There are not many companies who make you email them for a delivery quote for NI delivery. Either they aren’t very big or they don’t want to advertise that they intend to charge us ‘non mainlanders’ something extortionate.

I was too, try out both in a John Lewis or curry’s, I ended up with the Sony’s in the end as they sounded better to my ears
I own 1000mx2 the sound is a lot deeper then BOSE

I've also wondered this. I doubt the scumbags who nick phones realise the value of these headphones.
And no, there is no security feature on them.
Got these for £211 last time the ebay 20% offer was on
Check our the wind issue if you plan on using them outside. I have the Sony 1000abn and outside they are rubbish.

Nice headphones, I am personally very impressed with the sound quality. For some reason they give me a headache after a little while of wearing them, which I wish I could fix because everything else about them is brilliant.

Better with an iPhone, due to AAC support.

Does the 1000xm2 link to two devices like the Bose does?

When outside in the wind, turn off noise cancelling.

I have these, they are great. I would recommend them over the sony alternative. You can turn the noise cancelling off and run them without battery when turned off/ flat, also using a cable is an option, not just bluetooth. 10/10

I think the Bose have better ANC and the Sonys have a richer sound. Personally, if they were the same price I would opt for the Sonys but I wouldn't think anybody foolish for choosing the Bose. They are definitely the Ronaldo and Messi of noise cancelling headphones.
I tried the 25's last week and couldn't tell the difference to the 35......except they were cheaper
The Bose have amazing noise cancellation. I fly a lot and have used these on planes a dozen times in the last few months. Engine noise simply melts away when they’re turned on.
These are great, great headphones. I tried them against the Sony ones, I preferred the build quality of these personally. I literally use them everyday. If they're not playing music, they're answer calls. They also really come in to their own when on the plane too.

Can't recommend them enough.

Not the same product. The one on Amazon for 279 is the 1st gen. This deal is for the second gen, the QC 35 II

Did you notice a thin chord on the 25s connecting them to the player?

1000MX2 has better sound quality. I chose WI-1000X, it’s more convenient for daily user.

£269 for a set of headphones? Wonder what the markup is on that? I can't believe people would pay that kind of money for a set of headphones,

It’s worth double the price for noise cancelling on a plane/train. I hesitate to say on a bus too as who actually uses a bus? Awful sweat boxes.
WH-1000XM2 is the better headphone. Has a warm sound. Good detailed bass with good treble, the mids are only slightly recessed but not too much to be a bother. I bought mine in Canada whilst it was on sale for $400 CAD which is approximately £230. The Bose there would have cost £270
Only downside for me is WH-1000Xm2 makes my head warmer than other headphones I have used, so watch out for warmer weather use. It is superb in comfort though.

There is an estimated delivery charge calculator in the basket section, so they actually have more than what most websites offer (£12 to IOM)
Has anyone auditioned Sony v Bose on the London Underground care to wade in on the debate? I use an old pair of bose qc15s for 2 hours a day for morning and evening commute on the central line, at least on the odd occasions it’s not been suspended, and they’ve been fantastic, but keen to upgrade my iPhone soon and therefore need to go wireless (thanks apple). Music sound quality not that important as I tend to just watch tv shows - it’s the NC mainly plus any thoughts on comfort (my old Bose are super comfy), thanks all
could just keep what you got and use the lightning to female jack adapter that comes with newer phones.

You're right, sorry I was going solely on the information in their FAQ section which asks you to contact them before placing your order. I didn't get as far as adding the item to the basket after seeing that. Thanks
There exists such a thing?? You sir/madam are a genius! I’ll just do that then. Thanks very much.(highfive)

I work in Cannon Street and commute daily, plus go to various meetings.

I tried the Bose QC35s, and owned the Sony MDR 1000X before now buying the WH1000MK2 from Amazon.de for around 228 quid.

The MDR 1000s in my opinion are on par with Bose QC35, and the WH's easily beat them. I can hear very very little if anything with no music/audio at all, and with even low volume audio it's all gone.

I also happen to have a partner living abroad temporarily and so fly alot too, and the WH's are superb at pressure cancellation, particularly if you use the app to customise the feel for the pressure around you (very easy to do, literally one push of a button)

I would say WH1000MK2 all day mate, just much the better headphone for everything, except perhaps a tiny, tiny bit of comfort sacrifice although they are far from uncomfortable. I mean, cmon, Sony is the grandfather of music, go with the pros.

I know they’re more expensive, but can anyone on here comment on how the B&W PX stack up against these Bose and the Sony’s please? Been considering which to go for, for quite a while now and still unsure!
To anyone considering these. Only buy if you need the noise cancelling feature otherwise its just a pair of overpriced headphones

The lack of wire in the QC35s is a positive difference especially when you are using them frequently. That is worth the additional cost for a lot of people (including me) for ‘quality of life’ purposes!

What about a thin wire cable that attaches them to your phone
