    As if this is normal price now.

    Haha…I bought a set for my wife at $395 from Harvey on Sun (needed for wife's bday, so no time for shipping) and then decided to get myself a set from ebay using the 12% off sale code at $351 and now this deal lands! F@#$%!

      If you purchased @ $351 in the past 48 hours, get on eBay live chat and get the best price guarantee to get a voucher back for the difference and 5%.

        I thought ebay didnt price beat themselves?

      •  

        I just pulled the trigger on a set of these 47hrs ago $345ish (after 10% off) and tried to get a price match guarantee just now. The f#$@kers declined me because I paid $300 of the price with some discounted vouchers I picked up a while back. They said I can only price match against the $45 difference I paid with PayPal.
        I feel dirty on the inside O_o

      Its obvious you buy this one and return it to Gerry for a full refund

      •  

        Yeah, I'm not sure what luck I'll have with that? Thoughts, best to just rock up at the store I collected it from (online order), or try my luck with livechat again? I'm probably on a blacklist now! :P

      HN have a price guarantee. If you see it cheaper within 7 days of purchase they will refund the difference. Unless they use the good old "significantly lower than RRP".

          Their price match website says they exclude "Products with pricing set significantly lower than the recommended retail price or market value.". Kinda defeats the purpose of a price guarantee.

          I've had a the same experience on a printer. They were selling it almost double the price of other retailer (authorised reseller). And flatly refused to price match stating the exact reason. "Significantly lower than market price!?" WTF? Isn't that the whole point of price match/beat?
          I've never had a good experience at HN, and they seem to keep up with reputation.

          That guy Rodney is a d*ck…. I had a similar experience with him through chat a few weeks ago, he simply refused to price-match and was quite rude too. Think Gerry might have hired him especially to keep us OzBargainers at bay.

      The main reason why I would buy ANC headphones are for long haul flights/ journeys. If one is to wear headphones for many hours at a time, the most important factor is comfort.

      Both these headphones sound pretty average if you compare them to proper headphones dedicated to music.

        You can't just say 'both sound pretty average' when one is significantly better.

        Also, NC is important for using buses and trains as well, it makes journeys much more quiet and relaxing.

        That's the reason I bought the Sony, it's the best of both worlds.

    • +8 votes

      I agree. I own the xm3 as well. But it not having the multi-point connection is a huge disadvantage in day-to day use. If you use it with your laptop and phone, you have to manually disconnect and connect.

      Can only connect to 1 device at a time with the Sony's, lame

    •  

      The Bose has the paring with multiple devices and comfort as its advantage and some say comfort is better then Sony. Which I think is because its so plasticy and light. The XM3s are lighter then the XM2s, but still heavier then Bose

    • +3 votes

      Sony xm3 are better, I've tried both and there is no comparison.

      It's all subjective, I can't tell any discernable difference in sound quality between the two, however, the comfort factor difference is huge.

      If I had to replace my Bose, I'd buy the QC35s again without hesitation.

    •  

      Linus on youtube has a video comparing some popular noise cancelling headphones. I'd recomment watching that to help with selection.

    •  

      Sound preference is subjective. I sold the Sony but kept the Bose.

        Did you say to the JB staff can I test the Bluetooth range and didn't manage to get back;)

        •  

          Then I would have had to leave my phone behind to test it out……unless you were implying to use the staff's bluetooth device or stationary one if they have one to connect to with…? heh…

          Besides, the demos had their bluetooth disabled…..for unknown reasons by Bose, even to the JB staff(s)…..

    Has anyone had any issues with the ANC causing an uncomfortable/pressure feeling with these on? I tried some at DJs and they hurt after a minute but I'm wondering if that's because they have them hooked up to an AMP to improve the sound which may also cause the ANC to be too strong - for my ears at least.

    • +6 votes

      I tried on the Sony's there and didn't have any issues with the ANC. For my head the Bose felt more comfortable so I'd rather go with them as my main use is for long haul flights.

      • +3 votes

        Yep.

        I know you can adjust how strong the ANC is on the Sony's, so maybe that's why I didn't have an issue with theirs.

        • -1 vote

          that's not why - the bose QC35s are essentially 3.5 years old and they have been moved past a little by competitors in some areas (one being the pressure 'issue'). i put it in inverted commas because it's not an issue for most people.

          QC45s should be out sometime this year…probably.

              @DAT: er, okay? i don't know what point you're trying to make and i don't particularly care.

              fwiw, i own QC20s. they are one of the best purchases i've ever made, and everyone i have recommended them to says the same. i would urge anyone who spends more than 10 hours a year on an airplane to spend $400 on a pair of noise cancelling headphones. even if you only use them exclusively for that purpose, it will be well worth it.

  •  

    This price is amazing. I paid like 450 for my QC35's years ago :(

  • +1 vote

    Considering how A2A is currently selling the Sony XM3 for about the same price, that is probably the better buy.

    Never liked how you need to use the Bose app or take off the headphones to turn off/lower noise cancelling, very inconvenient and gets annoying over time. On the Sony you can set it to adjust automatically based on movement or just put one hand over the earcup.

    • +3 votes

      or take off the headphones to turn off/lower noise cancelling

      There's a dedicated button on the left earcup to turn ANC off. It can also be repurposed to google assistant.

    Just wore the Sony 1000XM3 for x2 trips of about 24 hrs.

    The headband is really painful on top of my head. I had to move the headband about 1cm to a new spot about every 30 mins.

    My QC35II are much more comfortable and I think the QC35II have better sound … just a pity about the old MicroUSB connection from the 1980s.

    At least the Sony 1000XM3 have USB-C.

      What are the differences similarities advantages disadvantages of micro usb vs usb c? I honestly have no clue besides usb c being reversible or something.

        USB-C is the current standard.

        MicroUSB is an old standard.

        It sucks having to carry separate old MicroUSB cables and charging is slower.

        Much easier to have all your electronics standardised with USB-C.

    Sony all the way, not sure why people still praising the Bose when we have a great competitor with more features and latest technology. Slight edge in comfort I agree, but the Sony is still exceptionally comfortable and a big improvement over the previous model. I would say XM3 9/10 and QC35II 10/10 for comfort.

    •  

      Sound quality is subjective and I think Bose is actually MUCH better in both comfort and sound. Sony wins with its touch gesture control and USB-C.
