Bose® QuietComfort® 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones £165 Amazon Spain

It it said that these are the best noise cancelling, in-ear headphones on the market. Considering the Amazon UK price is £259.95, the price of just under £165 including delivery (a saving of £95) is superb!
I've tried these and the noise cancelling effect is similar to turning down the volume of all the background noise you don't wish to hear to level 1.
You can also get the iPhone variant for the same price.

How did you get to that price?

€219 = approx. £161 (according to xe.com at least)

I bought mine a week or so ago from Amazon.de for £188 as the Spanish site was more expensive.
Worth checking both .de and .es to see who is cheapest at the time.

Seen these in Wetherfield poundland last weekend. X

I would want to spend that much on headphones, as I'll probably break them at somepoint LOL. HOT Deal anyhow.

Ah ha. It's worth noting that the 20 are for Android and the 20i are for iPhone and they are currently €239

I keep looking at these but just can't justify spending that kind of money for something I wouldn't use that much. I tried them as well and the sound is incredible.

how does delivery work? is it free.

Yes. I've just gone through the process and it comes out as:

£171.71 with 3-5 day delivery
£181.71 with 1-2 day delivery.

But if you pay in euros then

€223,66 (£165.02 XE conversion) and
€236,45 (£174.45) respectively

and then you'd have to see what exchange rate your bank used on the day

Had the originals from bose UK and the wires rubber casing eroded away after year - can't replace and bose won't cover - got klipsch

Cold for bose

I just selected the free delivery and they arrived 2-3 days later on a Saturday morning.

Sorry guys, the price has gone up from 217.98 Euros to 239.91 (Which is still only £177.38 + a couple of pounds delivery)
Now I've tried these properly at home, I have to say that they are frighteningly good! After charging them up, plugging them in to me head, my first test was to switch on our very loud old Dyson. After activating the noise cancellation feature, the Dyson which I stood directly over, went from sounding like... well a noisy Dyson, to nothing more than a PC fan. I later put them on while I was in bed and this was the clincher. With the noise cancellation switched on my wife who was laying down next to me and I kid you not was almost totally muted. I did not realise she was talking to me until I received a series of sharp pokes to the rib cage. Selective hearing technology has arrived!

Here's my original confirmation at the lower price.

Hi guys. Was blown away when I tried my mates QC15s. Now Im flying fairly often for work, I've decided I fancy a pair of these (maybe the QC25s have slightly better NC but I can sleep more comfortably with in-ear/earbuds).

My question is - as a UK resident, is the warranty procedure any different as a result of ordering from Spain? My only concern over buying headphones this expensive is that they have a good warranty (and maybe even insurance).

Thanks!

If you're travelling frequently check to see whether or not your travel insurance would provide cover for loss or damage to the headphones.

At the moment I just use the multi trip insurance that comes with my bank account:

They seem to have a nice clause:

What is not covered.
2. Loss, theft of or damage to Valuables or Your passport left Unattended at any time (including in a vehicle or in the custody of carriers) unless deposited in a hotel safe, safety deposit box or
left in Your locked accommodation.

Might need to look for new insurance

Hmmm - I better check my policy too!

I'm interested in buying a pair of these, is there any additional taxes you have to pay when buying from amazon.es or de? anyone had any problems with delivery or Item damage? Not usually fussed about purchasing stuff but If I'm paying a high price for a product I need some assurances Any help would be much appreciated.

No there would be no import tax that price there is it all in. Only choice now is use your Credit cards crappy exchange rate or amazon's crappy exchange rate
