    What's better with Apple gear these or Bose QC?

    • +1 vote

      I use these with my iPad Pro and they’re great. Only issue is if you change between devices, you have to go into Bluetooth settings and disconnect from one device and reconnect on the next. But that’s not a problem for me as I only ever use them on one device at a time.

    •  

      I have both Bose QC 35 and the Sony. Bose is a lot more comfortable in my opinion and can connect to two devices at once which is very convenient. I cannot stand the Sony earpads so I can't wear them for long periods of time. On the other hand, Sony's battery life is longer, has better audio quality and has better active noise cancellation. I prefer the Bose tactile buttons over Sony's touch pad, but again that is up to personal preference.

    Is this better than the Bose QC35?

    I pointed this out in the ebay code thread, but held off posting them as a actual deal until the code worked and there was no price jacking.

        OzyBe means that Hardly Normal is a massive rip. Just couldnt word it. Maybe English isnt their first language.

          I don't see anything in OzyBe's history that suggests English isn't their first language. Few words are needed to convey that Hardly Normal is a massive rip. The prices do all the talking.

  •  

    I got the ones off Amazon which are due for delivery today, but will return and get these ones if there's no price jacking.

    Thanks in advance OP!

    •  

      With cashback from cashrewards or shopback, if you ordered from Amazon for $327.04, amazon is slightly cheaper overall.

      •  

        Thanks raistlin! I was actually hoping for silver so happy to pay slightly more. Also I think I stuffed up the cashrewards bit because it's still not showing up in my account. -10 ozbargain points for me.

    Bought one within first minute of code going live, great price for new aussie stock, thanks OP!!!!!

      Never really thought about sniping using a coupon.

        I've been waiting on a deal for a few weeks now after my other pair of sonys (much older and already replaced out of warranty by sony) broke again. The listing said more than 10, 243 sold and considering this is the best price ever for new (not refurb) stock I thought it might sell out!

        Just went back to the listing - "338 sold in 1 hour"

  •  

    Got a set too !

  •  

    LOL - definitely some brodens out there! Some people buying TEN at a time!

    •  

      A couple of users are buying multiple lots (5+) in different colours. Wonder if Addicted to audio will police that as these are almost commercial quantities?

        One guy has bought over 50 across multiple purchases! Crazy hey! As long as it doesn't ruin it for us!

    Can anyone comment on how these (or the Bose 35) compare in sound quality (ie frequency extension, tightness of bass, soundstage) to something like the sennheiser hd 25?

    I like quality sound and don't really want to compromise on quality just to be free of a cord.

    My specific use case is electronic dance music Nx hop hop.

      Just forget about comparing Bose QC35, Sony XM3 or any active noise cancelling headphones to proper monitoring headphones. They're completely different use cases - ANC headphones are sold on their ANC and portability, monitoring headphones are sold on their sound quality.

      If you don't want to compromise on quality then no BT or ANC headphones will live up to your expectations.

      •  

        Thanks. I thought as much but sometimes I just want to be told how it is.

        •  

          No problem. I'm similar to you, I have AKG 7XX at home and enjoy good sound quality but I have found QC35 sound quality "good eoungh" where the benefits (ANC on flights) outweigh that drawback. I've heard good things about XM3 sound quality but I'm not expecting it to blow me away, an improvement on QC35 would be fine. For what its worth I think the bass is actually the strongest point of QC35 (harsh treble, muddled mids and sound stage).

          •  

            @Soothsayer: What are your thoughts on the hd25? Any experience with them?

            I tried so many other models at djcity and even more expensive AKG, Sennheiser, all kinda of models just sounded thin. Maybe I'm just a sucker for closed back, as open back sounds great for soundstage and separation between instruments in acoustic music, but in music with heavy electronic elements and the resulting low frequency extension it seems even the best open back cans are lacking.

            PS what type of music do you mostly listen to, and did it inform your choice of cans?

            • +1 vote

              @ozbjunkie: Nope, never tried those sorry. I've always liked open back headphones as mine are dual use with gaming and the seperation is a noticable advantage in some types of games. My music prefs are all over the place, though I do listen to more guitar / multi instrument based stuff over electronic so open back also fits well with that. I wanted something with a wide soundstage and especially good seperation in the mids and highs to make guitars and vocals more distinct and not 'shrill' at higher volumes.

              It all comes down to a matter of taste, and it sounds like yours are for closed back and more pronounced bass. What I will say is the 'enthusiast' audiophile community generally look for cans that reproduce the recording as closely as possible (i.e. monitoring headphones), and a lot of the common picks like AKGs and Beyers also have common complaints about sounding somewhat sterile / clinical. If you've always used headphones that 'colour' the sound in some way then these might sound a bit underwhelming in a quick demo but it's actually more accurate to the original sound. I like the bass on the K7XX but I would describe it more as tight bass that fills in the bottom end, but not really punchy or boomy. This can be somewhat fixed with EQ as well but if you like the sound of closed back then be happy with it!

    Cannot process payment transaction ATM via CC or PayPal, bummer looks like I miss out again.

    LOL @ 350 sold in the last hour. Ozbargain strikes again

      I received an SMS saying:

      [PayPal] Transaction of -$398.00 AUD to The trustee for BusiSoft Discretionary Trust on 31 January 2019 is marked as suspicious. Reply “1” if authorized or “2” if not authorized. [Reply Needed]

      I just find it weird that Paypal is asking authorisation for this vendor. Also, why is it asking for 398 not 318? I haven't authorised yet so I would love to hear from you guys

      •  

        Re: Reply 1 if authorised.

        It may not be a Paypal message: I get this SMS on several transactions when using my 28 Degrees mastercard on items not purchased through Paypal.

  •  

    Nice, thanks!

  •  

    Got one last time when it was 338 (10% GST return pending), happy with the product so far. The only complain I have so far is that it's way too hot to wear in summer outside of aircon coverage.

  •  

    I listened to these and the Bose QC35 in JB Hifi where they were both setup for demo. I wasn't so much listening for sound quality as they were playing different music but purely for noise cancelling. In my opinion the Sony was quite significantly better for noise cancelling in the noisy JB Hifi store.

    Sony if you want ANC and better sound quality

    Bose if you want better long term comfort, call quality

  •  

    Quick, mine has been shipped

  •  

    Sold out of silver…

  •  

    if its not ozbargin made me bought two already, i should be all over this 😎

  •  

    Seems like people say Sony noise cancelling is better than Bose. Hmm. Have been long Bose fab but time to change? :)

  •  

    How do you apply this?

    When I put the code in at the checkout it says the code is not aplicable to your order.

  •  

    I've ordered one, got confirmation from Ebay, but not from the seller. Then I got this instead:

    "Thank you for submitting your request. A support ticket has been created, and one of our team members will be in touch (usually within 24 hours)."

    No money deducted from my account so far. Anyone else got the same?

  •  

    Haven't tried the Bose out but the Sony's build quality wasn't the best. Might have been the flogged out pair at JB but I dunno?

    Anyone else think these would snap in a light breeze?

  •  

    Thanks OP, headphones shipped :)

    Bit the bullet & bought them!

      They won't for change of mind but I have returned stuff under warranty and had a new replacement promptly shipped back.

    My Friday is swinging with these headphones. Ordered one yesterday from Amazon for $366 with cashback(12%). But found Prime members cant get the cashback. so, requested for Cancellation and bought today from ebay for $318. Fortunately, recieved a notification from cashback saying $40 is back in my account(which i can see under pending) making my Amazon transaction to $326. i cancelled the cancellation request from Amazon and both my headphones will arrive on Maonday. Will sell one for a bit profit :)

    thanks OP, bought one a couple of hours ago and now it's on its way. it should roughly arrive on mon
