Why would I want 35 headphones?
No headphones should ever cost this much in my opinion

John Lewis Peterborough has some of the black ones for £224 ... Open box but may be of interest to someone
Why anyone in the right mind would buy bose is beyond my comprehension. Paying over £100 for Bose headphones is just ridiculous but paying over £300 is absolutley insane. The reason why you by headphones is for the sound quality, Harman Kardon, Bang & Olufsen and Bowers & Wilkins offer sound quality that Bose can only dream of. Bowers and Wilkins P7 headphones are similar priced but have much better sound quality that really enhances the sound in a much more detailed and natural way. The highs, mids and low frequencies are perfectly balanced to produce sound the way the artists intended them to be and each detail in the song can be heard. A headphone amplifier is a great way to step it up a notch too. Bose on the other hand is a complete disappointment and people buy it for the brand, it's for amatures who haven't a clue what audiophile level of sound is.
The Sony 1000mk2 were sounding better when I compared them. I have the QC25 at home and the 15. The Sony sound great. I am looking to try the B&W wireless ANC ones when I get a chance

I think people buy them for the ANC too. I personally also found the Bose more comfortable than the P7 which was important to me when wearing for hours at a time travelling.

But agree there is better sounding headphones for the money if that is your sole priority.

Even so there are better noise cancelling headphones and you can always buy after market foam cushion pads for the ears if they are an issue

People are buying Bose and Sony just for the noise cancelling cause it seems to be so cool not to hear the underground noise or the engines when flying. Other than that, a pair of 80-100£ senheirsers delivers the same sound quality.

Beg to differ, gents. I have bought and tried some premium headphones like Shure, and found my Bose QC35’s to be a fantastic buy. Clear and crisp sound, bass not too heavy or overbearing. The design is light and comfortable, not to mention the inside of the cup is angled correctly to align with the ear itself. And, the noise cancellation is spot on. I am yet to see another pair of headphones get all that right in one package to be fair. Yea, price is off putting for some, but if you can’t justify the price or afford them, you’re obviously not looking at the right price point or being realistic, and ultimately the quality of the experience you get will be reduced also.

Not too sure £300 is a ‘deal’

Each brand and product has it's merits. In terms of this type of product, the ANC of the Bose offering is far better than anything by those other brands. Nothing even comes close apart from the newer Sony 1000. Sure, if you're not buying them for use out of the house then the PX's sound better, but they're not fit for purpose IMO. I own or have owned speakers and headphones by all of those brands. All prices being equal I recommend Bose for travel/out of the house, B&W at home if you must have Bluetooth, and if you can live with wired then Sennheiser sound far better than all aforementioned brands.

For portability, fit, noise cancelling, comfort, and weight these stand head and shoulders above anything from those 3 brands. They sound very good as well, maybe not the best sound for the price, but that's not the only factor to consider.

What would you recommend? I've tried many and there aren't IMO any better available.

The Sony’s are probably better at ANC, but I don’t think many more are unless you can enlighten me? And maybe i’m in a minority, but I don’t think I’d drop £300 on headphones only to be flipping around some after market items to make them more comfortable when there are alternatives that already do that job

It actually means you don’t need the volume as loud which is nicer on the old ears, and nicer for the people sitting sitting around you depending on leakage (which the Bose aren’t the best at, but if the ANC helps keep the volume down the better).

But I’m sure your ‘cool’ comment was bait rather than a lack of knowledge around ANC

Passive NC works ok for 90% of people I would say. I partly agree with your comment, but it is like saying that people buy iPhones cause screen quality is good for "old eyes"
I bought them for sleeping 💤 in, they are very comfy. I have tried everything to combat a snoring partner, ear plugs plus these work like a charm, sometimes on a bad night I even put a little background music to completely muffle any snoring activity, yes expensive, but worth every penny for a sound sleep.
I really didn't want to spend more than £150 on NC headphones, but after disappointed AKG N60 NC performance, I figured I would have to spend more.
My key requirements where good NC and the ability to pair a tablet and phone and switch between them seamlessly as possible.
After much research and in store testing, only the BOSE could provide what I wanted. Sure, the NC was marginally better with the Sony, but the multiple device support was not as well implemented. The senheisser pcx-550 was hopelessly inadequate in this respect.
The QC35 was money well spent for me. I can connect my tablet and phone at the same time. I can be watching a video and if I get a call, the video pauses and I can answer the call. Once the call finishes I can go back to my video. And the NC on my tube and train commute is more than good enough.
