that is the XB300 model, which is a step down from this one (hence cheaper).

You can get free delivery to a tesco store as well.

I have them on order, should be picking them up on Wednesday night.

I bought them for gaimng and movies and music all on my PC. Not the kind of cans I would wear out an about. Meant to be super-comfortable, will report back on quality of sound.

Out of stock now.

ok, have been using these for over a week now.

They are very comfortable, but do get hot after long usage.
Cable is very short!, I have my PC right next to me and the cable barely has enough slack. I'd say about 1m long. There are no bundled extras (apart from a cloth carry bag).

Sound is very good, although can sound very echoey when listening to speech. Have adjusted eq settings to what internet search suggested and made an improvement.

For the price they are great, but I think if I had the choice I would spend more and buy something else.
