For this money, youd be better off with the BOSE QC35's hands down.

looking at several reviews there appears to be design issues with the headband/ hinge area prone to cracking...

these are better than bose qc35,I have pair amazing and 95% of reviews also would agree

Sony has now acknowledged the hinge issue and is taking action. As said above most expert reviews say that these are better than the QC35's for sound and possibly even NC. The Bose are favoured for comfort though.

True, Ive read all the reviews - but remember a lot of them are paid reviews (some of them painfully so, as they are litered with further links and references to the entire Sony suite of offerings!)

So ive been going on human reviews (i.e. the people in my office) and they all swear by the QC35s.

However, as of 12 minutes ago, I have some of these ordered and arriving soon - so im going to conduct my own review

good to know - is there any way to identify the revised model?

I'm actually not sure if it has been revised yet. Ive read they are offering replacements for any headphones that have been affected. I'd imagine the next step is to tweak the design to stop the issue entirely.

Mine have been absolutely fine but do you have a link to where replacements have been discussed (just in case), please?

I got these based on my own comparison with QC35's and it was a close call. The sound quality is better on the Sony, better mid-range. NC at the airport was similar and comfort similar. I liked the beige colour, so went for them.

I use mine on 12 hour flights and they are really comfortable. Battery is amazing and I get 20+ hours, but I've never flattened them (best not to). Charge time is long, but can easily be planned for an overnight charge.

Not had any BT drop out and can pair with multiple devices. Only annoying thing is to use the NC function without music, BT must be paired or cable connected or NC turns off.

The only reason I can think of to go for Bose is the name, bit of snobbery. It's like Android and iOS argument.

expired - back up to over £300 again
