Posted 24th Nov 2019Available: Scotland (Edinburgh)

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Closest I can find is £250 on Amazon but I saw these and picked them up for £20 less

2 years manufacturer warranty as standard.

NOTE: This was in Edinburgh airport however it may be in many others, and Curry's themselves may do a price match on this. If you find anything out about this or even get a successful price match, let me know and this will be updated.

My plan is to leave them boxed and if I find them cheaper on Black Friday, I will return these to my Local Curry's/PC World

Doesn't duty free mean the 20% VAT is taken off,if so then surely the £20 saving should have been nearer to £50,but hey ho suppose Dixon's were happy making £30 and op was happy with a £20 saving.

Nick Trend, Telegraph Travel chief consumer editor, said: “The point about duty free, which people tend to forget, is that the retailer is not obliged to pass on the savings to the customer. Normally it pitches prices just below high street levels and, because no taxes and duty are payable, it enjoys a much higher profit margin.

"Essentially it is airport shops who benefit from duty-free status far more than their customers. As a result, it is perfectly possible to find special offers on the high street which are cheaper than airport 'duty-free' shops. It's time for more transparency so that consumers can see what is really happening to prices at the airport

So I gota fly to Edinburgh airport 😰
Well, I found this in Edinburgh, however it will most likely be in many other airports, and you may even be able to get Curry's to so a price match, as Dixon's is part of them

Yes that's what I'm aiming for so leaving it boxed until after Black Friday. This is just in case it doesn't drop below £250

Wow that's ridiculous


You'll also find with a lot of items (not just curry's) they change the model numbers ever so slightly usually by 1 letter or number so they don't have to price match each other. I used to work for curry's hence how I know this

Yeah makes sense, Really interesting 👌 not much we can do about it though is there? 😬
277 euros on amazon.it ...if interested
Anyone got any idea on whether they will be cheaper for Black Friday??
Luton airport had them for £219 on Wednesday, should have picked them up!

Yup... somebody will have.
Best affordable ANC headphones on the market in my opinion. Specially if you live in London and commute on the tube, it will save you from deafening!!!!!

No guess not,mind a tourist could have paid full price ant any Dixon's etc then claimed the 20% VAT back at airport,so hope BF prices go sub £200 for you locally,in which case Dixon's will be getting a return for a refund
Anyone know how much better these are than the XB900N’s? I was, sadly, quite unimpressed with those so looking for replacement.

Thanks

I actually posted that exact deal from DWI when it was first around £210 however it got taken down because apparently DWI aren't a UK company or something, which I understand- but why is this one still up?

Yep leaving them sealed just in case because after waiting a month or so, I'll happily wait another week for a sub 200 price

I listened to both in store and these definitely have far superior ANC along with better build quality (and I assume better audio, of course I didn't get a side by side test with similar music) but then again it is a premium price tag and these headphones do not disappoint

That’s great to know - thanks - it was the ANC I was disappointed with on the 900’s so maybe I’ll take a trip to try these out.

VAT is taken off only when travelling outside the EU.
Same deal also available in Dixons Travel in Heathrow terminal 5. Bought them this week whilst there for my son's Christmas present and similar to the original poster, leaving them wrapped and will return to Dixons if I can get them cheaper by Christmas.
I have them sat in my shelf and I'm so tempted to open them now for the week ahead but I'm holding back in the hopes of a better deal too.
