Now is also available in INVORY colour for £219 on amazon. I was waiting for this deal for long time as only black was in this great price before. I've tried to add separate post but hot uk team deleted it and redirected to this post.
With sony 1000 the problem is after ON noise cancelling they losing audio quality and people including me felt pain in ears as during diving
Yeah great price though. Loved these headphones but the earpads are too small for me. Larger than the Sennheiser PXC 550 and Sonys though I believe. These sound great, have a real punchy and crisp bass and sound. And a very luxurious and lightweight build. The headband is hard though. And some had issues with the control position, average ANC, etc. On HeadFi people seem to love the Sonys Dunno, think I'll wait for a successor to the B&W PX - although not sure if they fit me well - not tried them. Most aren't suitable for large ears.
Same price at John Lewis if anyone would prefer to test them before buying. Maybe there is a new model coming soon since they reduced the price. This one I think is 3 years old now.
PXC 550 for noise cancelling/travelling, these if you favour better sound, is what I concluded from the millions of reviews I've watched/read recently. All subjective, though. Try before you buy is your best bet. I'd go with these if I wasn't skint.
