    No mention of tax invoice, I suspect they wont give one?

    • +5 votes

      Yep they give a full tax invoice with the original amount before the coupon was applied ($452.50).

      •  

        Great, thanks

  • +3 votes

    Perfect - thanks OP! Exactly 60 days before I fly so after Cashrewards and TRS they come down to just under $317.

    •  

      Does this mean you can't open then until you leave?

      • +1 vote

        It's fine to open and use whatever you're claiming the GST back on - you just need to be carrying it with you when you leave.

      Was waiting for the obligatory $250 QC35 comment..

  • +1 vote

    Really did not need a pair. I'm going overseas soon and don't want to have to listen to babies, the plane, or my brother.

    •  

      You might still hear babies, but the engine drone will be muted, meaning you can hear the sound from movies or your audio player.
      And you'll be about $33 better off after collecting TRS

    Props to videopro, they never bump the prices of qc35 during these Ebay promos and they sell hundreds of the things! If only other Ebay stores followed their lead

    •  

      True. There few other stores who do not bump the prices. I don't understand few people defending such price jacking stores that these stores bear the cost of sales when the invoice we receive is always for the full amount.

      • +1 vote

        That's because i think eBay or Paypal pays the difference. The seller always gets the full payment. If the seller is price jacking before the eBay coupon discount sale then it's a blatant money grab.

    Perhaps a silly question.
    I did see these come with a cable for a wired connection. Do they also come with the adaptor for use in airplanes with their stupid proprietary connections?

    • +3 votes

      Yes they do.

    •  

      I wouldnt put such expensive cans into an airplane socket, some of the voltages are crazy in those jacks.

    the new update on the phone is great
    you can now choose noise cancelling levels ( off , mid and max) while using wireless mode

    •  

      Whoah, that's awesome. Are you experiencing any issue with the noise cancelling etc.? I'm still too scared to update from the stock software.

      • +2 votes

        Nvm, the update is awesome + works perfectly. Glad Bose finally pushed this feature through.

        • +2 votes

          Being able to adjust the noise cancelling level also helps with the feeling of pressure many users experience

  •  

    I used these on a return flight last week and it makes such a difference to the flying experience.

    especially when we had to get off the plane and walk down the stairs to the tarmac, I didn't realise the engines were making so much noise until I took them off.

    •  

      If there is an emergency announcement, you will miss it..

      • +1 vote

        Doesn't cancel out voices. Though they do sound muffled or distant. I use these on the train daily and i can still make out the announcements with the headphones on and listening to music. Then again i dont have the volume up that high. Never needed too as the noise cancelling feature in these cans does a great job.

        I have 3 pairs from the $250 deal and forgot where I put them.

  •  

    Recommendation on colour please. Silver or Black? I'm thinking Silver might show dirt more

    • +2 votes

      Do you have more grey or black underwear?

      •  

        Black

        • +13 votes

          I'd recommend the Black one then.

          You're welcome

      •  

        Another is black or grey hair. You can then camouflage so it's both noise cancelling and theft cancelling

    •  

      They both look awesome. Go silver if you want something other than a generic pair of cans on your head.

    •  

      Black as the colour comes off the silver one and looks worn quicker.

  •  

    Slightly related - but how much would a very rarely used paid of QC25s go for? Interested in upgrading to the 35s.

    •  

      Interestingly, Choice rates the quality of the 25 higher than the 35, seems based mainly on listening quality with NC on.

      •  

        I read somewhere that you can't turn off the BT function on QC35 when using a wire. Just for that reason I bought QC25 instead. Listening lossless musics from DAC player using QC25 is super awesome! Not from a BT though, it sounded a bit flat.

        Don't sell those QC25 yet. There is a BT adapter made specially for QC25 called AirMod. I have one, great product but can't expect long battery life.

        •  

          Oh wow this looks cool. I didn't know about this!

        • +3 votes

          As soon as you plug the cable in it turns BT off on the QC35. If you were meaning Noise cancelling you can now turn that off via the app. With the both 25 and 35 if you turn the power off you can still use them with the cable, but you also lose the equaliser meaning sound quality drops.

    I really want to get these but they might ruin my hair.

    •  

      Then just hold it in your hand everytime you want to use. Put your volume on max so you can hear the music

    As someone who suffers from tinnitus, I could never wear these. I actually enjoy the drone of the jet engines on a plane.

  •  

    Yes, I'm going to make the obligatory comment about comparisons to the MDR-1000X. In a perfect world if these two were the same price - $350 - what would be the better buy?

    •  

      tried both.. sony wins in term on sound quality, much louder and crispier … but lose or on almost all other for me (NC, comfort..) So it all depends on ur preferences..

    • +1 vote

      The Sony is a bit like sticking your head into a vice grip

      •  

        So a no go on the Sony?

        • +1 vote

          Personal preference on fitting. JB Hifi have both on display to try on, I would recommend trying them both to see which suits you better.

          My personally I would choose the Sonys if both were at the same price point.

        •  

          @KiddieKid: Yeah, I'll head into a store tomorrow and give them a try. I've been leaning towards the Sonys to will make a decision by lunchtime tomorrow.

        • -3 votes

          @Slave1: One extra point to consider is the battery.
          Sonys are rechargeable where as the QC35 are AAA battery driven.

          If your are forgetful with charging it maybe easier just to carry a spare AAA in the case and not have to worry about battery levels.

        •  

          @KiddieKid:

          QC25 is the one that runs 1x AAA. QC35 has internal battery only. It is possible to replace it but requires some hacking.

        •  

          @KiddieKid: Really? I was pretty sure they both are Lithium Ion powered now?

        •  

          @KiddieKid: qc35 has an inbuilt battery. You might be talking about the qc25.

        •  

          @xoom: Ahh yes I was mistaken.

        •  

          @Slave1: Yes, sorry I was mistaken.

    •  

      Personally liked the way the Sony sounded more (on the demo tracks at JB anyway, couldn't play my own) but Bose was way more comfortable and happy enough with the sound. Apple stores should have the Bose on display with no tether, able to play your own music etc. which was nice to try before buying.

    •  

      Does anyone know if the cracking issue still common?
      https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/309028

      •  

        My colleagues sony headphones cracked also. Took it back to jbhifi who sent it back to sony. Been there for at least 2 months now. Hasn't got it back yet.

        My bose qc35 which has not had an easy life had minor scuff marks. Thats it.

          Alright, QC35 > MDR1000X. Thanks!

  •  

    Dilemma - which looks better irl? Black or silver?

    • +3 votes

      I've heard the silver look a little too plastic and cheap irl compared to the black.

      •  

        Both are made of the same material however the silver just looks cheap for some reason. Dont know why though. Hard to explain.

    •  

      Apparently you can buy skins for these

  •  

    what is it about this that makes everyone say its so comfortable. it just looks similar to every other pair out there. It is made of some exotic material or something?

    • +1 vote

      JB has them on display if you want to try them on. They're comfy, if pretty cheap feeling for the price. But they're pretty light and the noise cancelling is amazing.

    • +1 vote

      The cushions themselves are very comfortable, and sit fully around the ear. Whereas others tend to be firmer and often are smaller earpieces.
      The softness does mean that the cushions tend to last only a couple of years (depending on how you care for them), but you can get replacement cushions easily enough.

    •  

      i have some cheapo headphones, and after a few minutes my ears get really hot - not sure if its due to the crappy material or poor design. if you do test them, leave them on for about 10 mins to get a real understanding.

  •  

    I'm keen in getting the this but I need to go JB tomorrow to try out both this and the Sony. I do have a big head and it comes with big ears :)

    Hope the Sony MDR-1000X is the same value as this.

  •  

    would JB price match ebay sales? i

    •  

      No but it never hurt to ask. If your local JB member is nice, he/she may just offer you the same or give you a more comparable offer.

  •  

    The QC35 materials wear out easily. Go to JB and look at the demo stock and you'll see what I mean. My friend has had one for months and looks the same… Paint peels etc. I also don't like the vacuum sound effect. Tried the QC30 and it sounds so much more natural. The variable NC is also much more functional. The one on the QC35 with the two settings was meh and you had to go into settings to toggle them. I also think the earcups doesn't block noise passively better than the QC30… I had to push the earcups into my ear to stop noise leakage coming in. Then again I was wearing a hat so maybe that affected it. That said the QC35 has fractionally better sound and has double battery life. It can also still be used when batteries are dead. I really do think they were made for plane rides as that's the perfect application.

    I just don't understand why no company on earth can just make a perfect product. There's always something…

    Pulled the trigger and purchased! Videopro reckon up 14 days delivery. I'm on the Sunshine Coast. Hopefully a wee bit quicker for me. Has anyone had any experience with videopro and their shipping times?

    •  

      14 days delivery and you're in QLD as well, can't imagine what the delivery time would be if you are outside of QLD.

      •  

        14 days delivery if it was missorted through distribution sorting centres and starts taking an around Australia trip during that time and finally makes its way back to Queensland.

  •  

    How much heavier are these than wired non-noise-cancelling $350 Sennheiser cans?

  •  

    Ok so I am a numpty. When I click on the link in the OP to go to Video Pro to purchase the price is $443 or something. It then asks me to commit to purchase. So when do I put in the code, as I don't want to commit at the $400 plus price.
