The ones from first direct offer are different. I opened An account,told me deliver would be up to 30 day’s from ordering...that was 36 day’s ago,and still nothing.
I prefer the non-noise cancelling Bose headphones myself. They are lighter and I find the noise cancelling range add a small but noticeable hiss in the background (although I haven't tried the QC35's, so maybe these are better?). I've had the AE2i and Soundtrue wired headphones and now Bose have these which seem to be the same but with Bluetooth and a much higher price tag. I'm sure these could come down a bit more in price. These are cheaper on amazon.de (181.99 euros - roughly £160-165).
I think you are right, the ones offered by First Direct are the the On ear and not over ear. I've tried the on ear ones at the shop and then are not bad at all, quite comfy, but if it's noise cancellation you want then you need the QC35's. Not sure about these tho.
I might be wrong but the headphones offered by first direct don't seem to be the same? They are on-ear headphones and these are around ear headphones?
Thanks OP. I've opened a first direct account. Just needs to have an average of £1k in there until the headphones come through.
