I seen these the other day and thought it was a great deal at £29.99.

That's a wonderful price!!!

Are they really worth nearly 20 notes?

Only problem is where can I find one in London?

1 pound notes were phased out in 1984. it is only four notes.

Maybe in England but not in Scotland

I stand corrected.

hmm noise canceling. seems like a good deal :thumbsup:

I got a pair of these a year or so back off a deal in Amazon (think they were about £29).

They work really well on planes and also comes with that 2 pin adaptor that some planes use to stop you nicking their ****** headphones.

Great quality sound as with most sony headphones too.

Only south of the border, we still have to put up with them in Scotland! But we get £100's well so we have 6 notes.

Good deal - and many thanks to the contributor. Just got a pair from Sainsburys in Camberley this morning - they'd only put them on sale yesterday and they're flying out according to the assistant I talked to - only 5 sets left on the shelf.

I'd only been looking at a set of these yesterday. I've got a pair of Sennheiser PXC-250 on-ear headphones which work very well but needed another pair so that both the wife and I could benefit from noise canceling for a flight to NZ in June. I thought I'd have to resort to an old cheap pair of Philips noise canceling headphones I have which are only a little better than useless after looking around for in-ear ones, seeing this Sony model and thinking, still a bit pricey, then this appears on UKHD!!

Just to say, it's noise reducing rather than noise canceling, and best suited for constant noise like on aircraft - it does not work with human conversation etc. You do not realise how much less wearing it is with them on until you turn them off and get a wave of aircraft noise hitting you! It also means you can listen to the in-flight entertainment at a lot lower volume as you don't have to overcome background noise.

Also, you get what you pay for. My original pair of Philips headphones did help slightly, but the Sennheiser headphones are a league ahead. I hope the Sony are at least somewhere in between!! At £20 they're an excellent deal.

I live in the valley's of Wales, we used pound notes here. Sheep were ruled out as currency.... they were not practical, could never get 20 in my wallet! :whistling:

Another alternative is Sennheiser cx-300. I got them for £6 inc from Ebay (are also available for £9 from Amazon stores). Excellent ear canal noise cancelling earphones. They sell them at PCWorld for £40.

You need to compare like with like - Sennheiser cx-300 are NOT noise canceling, they are noise isolating, ie they use the construction of the ear piece to block out outside noise. Noise canceling headphones use "ta microphone, placed near the ear, and electronic circuitry which generates an "antinoise" sound wave with the opposite polarity of the sound wave arriving at the microphone. This results in destructive interference, which cancels out the noise within the enclosed volume of the headphone." (from Wikipedia).

I owned one of these before. The noise cancelling isn't great at all and it already stated to cancel 10db only. Try the senheiser or the altec lansing. they are much more effective.

great price, thanks, heat added

not bad for the money but you get noise from the cables moving around

Ive bought these previously from Amazon. I bought 2. Not bad headphones at all, great sound, but the noise cancelling isnt brilliant. They also hiss sometimes. I personally wouldnt buy these again ever.

Both of these stopped working after a while. One of the ear peices goes or stops working. I advise to google the model number and youll see accounts from people from all over the world with the same problem. Senheiser cx300 or creative ep-630 are decent enough.

Have to say that I don't think noise cancelling headphones are worth it. I've had three different makes and models, and they never seems to be as good as you would hope. Noise reduction might be a better description if you ask me. My shure e2c's are far better IMHO, and are less hassle. These were around £30 a short while back, but can see any at this price at the moment sadly.

About 20 left at the WARREN HEATH Sainos in IPSWICH.
£19.99 from £59.99 to confirm.
Bargain.
Need 1 AAA battery too btw.
Also, they are on the end of an aisle with the other sale electrical items.

Just picked up a pair at Winchmore Hill - loads left.

Nearly all fakes on ebay

There were loads in the stoke store, so im considering getting a pair for when i go to canada in the summer. but they really do get mixed reviews!!!:?

I am not usually one for complaining about stuff on this site, but after picking up a pair and having a test - conclusion - complete rubbish (unless I have picked up a duff set.). They are soooo tinny, no bass, and as for the noise reduction - err what noise reduction. Tested them by sticking my head next to a dishwasher while it was in full cycle - not a bit of difference with the NR switched on/off. In fact, the dishwasher gave off more bass than these. Anyway, enough of the rant, I think i'll stick with the apple headphones - these are going straight back.

Picked up a set of these today, got a few flights this and next month and my £99 archos to watch. I have a set of normal sennheiser earphones (bud type) that work brilliantly so will compare them.

Bargain anyway, heat and rep added

can you take them back if your not happy with them?

sianlouisa;1869859

Well, I would class these as faulty as they do not do what they claim (maybe they were faulty). Anyway - I unpackaged carefully as I was a little skeptical - return as unwanted.

LOL ok

I have several pairs of these and they seem to work OK and only £7.99:

]http//sv…352

I just bought these from Leices Fosse Pk Sainsburys, only 2 left! they seem ok, there is some hiss but good bass and clarity not bad for £20. Cheers

There are about 20 pairs left on the shelf in Cobham, Surrey (9pm Friday). Lots left and they afre hidden on the end of the electrical isle.

Well I've just used these on three long flights and I'm impressed. They killed off the sound of the engines and I was able to listen to my ipod with the sound at a reasonable level. I also watched my archos and again the sound was great.

One small complaint, the volume on everything was lower than it is on any other headphones.To be fair it was never too low for me not to be able to hear it.

On one flight it surprised me how loud the background noise had been when I took them off.

Well worth the £19.99

Yeah,

Have to agree, used these on a short uk flight and they did actually cut out about 70% of the background groan/hum of the engines.

We where sat right at the propeller so got the vibrations and lots of background noise but the headphones did an excellent job. Was always a bit skeptical of noise cancelling headphones but they are great for flights.

Would also agree that the sound is a little lower than “normal” but nothing really to worry about.
Next move are the Bose headphones. Just need a lottery win to buy them

Great buy and rep added.
