Decent headphones with decent reviews.
Starts Australia day.
You local store may have some or none.
How do you see the full catalogue?
Visit a store.
That appears to be last weeks catalogue without the headphones in it.
Ah yes my bad, but it isn't last week's. It is Tomorrow's week. OP's deal is in 2 Weeks
wow … $305 at Amazon.com.au https://www.amazon.com.au/Sony-WH-CH700N-Canceling-Headphone...
waiting for amazon to price match :P
retravision have it for $229
The price is coming down :)
This will cause riots.
@inamberclad: Quiet! Biet! Diet! Siet! Fiet!
Come on. They just don’t want to feel the noise.
I'm happy to fight a granny for this one!
Nah just out run her !
Sweep the leg. She'll be too busy figuring out how to run with a shattered hip to be any competition then.
@thatguyfromthatplace: Push her down, son.
@thatguyfromthatplace: Watch out for that walking stick though. A lash from one of those could be very painful as was evident to me during the previous sale. I'm outing myself now.
She could hit you with her mobility scooter though.
You've still got the walking stick and the false teeth to deal with though…
They are being sold pretty cheap worldwide but in Australia at least double the price?
Exactly what I was going to write as well. They can be found for €99 ($150) at the major electronic stores in Europe.
Since when was Euro to Aud less than $2
He's better off buying Beats and letting us riffraff have $150 'cheap' headphones.
"You local store may have some or none."
Won't have none. As a catalogue item, each store is required to get some.
5 minutes after opening on Australia Day your store will have none :-|
"Won't have none"
For a moment there I thought they might have some, but no, you're saying they will not have none.
Maybe they'll have one then?
Probably two per store 🤣
I couldn't see any in my local this morning in the glass cabinet, only the wireless buds.
My local had one in the glass cabinet, but when we asked they grabbed one from under the counter, so it seems they kept most of the stock there
My local Aldi had it stacked under the counter. When I asked they gave me one.
One of the reviews on the JB Hifi site, says these are better then the BOSE Acoustic NC QC25 (which I am assuming is the equivalent).
Glowing review, though the reviews on sites like this can not be verified as being accurate.
Take that one with a truck load of salt.
So the Amazon description says “on ear”.
But the review posted above says “over ear”.
Anyone knows which it is?
They look very 'over ear' to me.
Looks like Aldi has got a real bargain.
Around ear would be a better description
through the ear.
They're circumaural, which means the pads rest around your ears/on your skull rather than on your ears.
Around/over ear for most. For those with dumbo ears, in ear :-P
Anyhow, what is the reason Sony has decided to sell this one product through a cheapskate supermarket, instead of the usual approach using up-market shops?
Because it is cheap.
They built up a big stock, but negotiated a deal where the manufacturer delivers x amount monthly for two years, which Sony finds is more than they've ended up selling. What to do next? Offload them with Aldi who have a worldwide business and can get rid really quickly, so not to hurt future sales. Just guessing.
Here's another… it could be flawed/have an annoying but deniable bug/design fault, or simply be out of date tech so selling through a low-value vendor lets them avoid accountability like they wouldn't be able if it went through their normal channels.
Bought one today, not flawed, excellent. Not out of date either, released 2018. Check the reviews.
@Wardaddy: Which store?
@nocure: Officeworks, price beat, $141.55.
@nocure: Happy camper.
@Wardaddy: Nice work. Thanks for confirming.
Now I can throw away the Sony BT NC phones I bought as they are clearly not only piss-poor, but have been outdated by these, and others!
Nice find. I think TGG had these the other day.
At what price?
Wow.. the same price and still only 25 upvotes! Not sure what Also did differently here to make the price look more attractive.
@virhlpool: Return policy and loyalty?!
@DAT: Loyalty is dictated by price. Return policy, I get it.
reviews for this are saying it's not good and not many people are a fan?
My friend got these from CC rewards store 6 months ago. They are just okay looks and sound wise compared to the likes of Bose or Sony 1000 so just align your expectations and you'll be happy.
Expectations should be aligned with $200 value which one will be getting for only $149.
If you want them earlier you could buy them from Sydneytec on the ebay 20% sale tomorrow. Will come down to the bargain price of $1999.20
This takes price jacking to a whole new level. hahaha
Apparently 40 sold and the one advertised is the last one :/
yeah. Previous price was $299.
So they have NFC.
Does that mean I can wear them grocery shopping and just tilt my head towards the eftpos machine to pay.
I can confirm this works
No, it only works for Opal and you have to shout ‘TAP ON’ really loudly (make sure you switch on noise canceling first).
I always wear protective tin foil hat that also covers my NFC enabled headphones. This is to prevent frauds from skimming away my money by tapping an EFTPOS machine on my head while I'm merrily listening to music. You wouldn't believe the number of times this happens on a train.
You too, huh? Darn those Romanianian skimmers!
Just go to a Sony Kiosk and get a price match
Sure you've got one price matched ?
Reviews say these cans have below average NC capabilities.
Okay so got these last week with good guys deal.
They sound amazing and have killer battery life.
However, the major thing I hate is the fact that you can only pair a single device at a time. This may be super annoying to people that typically use more than one device.
Agree. This is an important feature for some people. Just because it may not be to others doesnt make any less important to you or i.
Watched some reviews on Youtube. The top end and the best noise cancelling headphones in the world as of now (Jan 2019) is Sony WH-1000XM3. These Sony WH-CH700N are mid range ANC headphones within Sony's like of ANC headphones. These do have good sound quality but the ANC is meh. If you are looking for solid ANC, go for the Sony WH-1000XM3, not these.
anyone know what the wireless earphones are a rebadge of?
This deal is still a week away in store.
I'm guessing you all love Aldi.
Or that waiting for sale marketing game pays off~
* cue multiple endless drum rolls *
I took the catalogue to a JB Hi-Fi today and price matched and got them. $149.
Nice job. I prefer to buy things in person too.
Awesome, if possible could you post the receipt?
I'd like to try my luck today.
