alasta:Fabian: I've been offered a pair of used Bose QC15's for $280. ?Should i pull the trigger???
You can buy the Sennheiser PXC-250-II new for about $380 ($300 if you can get a good deal). Admittedly the QC15 has better noise cancelling ability but the PXC-250-II has vastly superior audio quality.
If the price of $280 for the QC15 were for a brand new set then it would be tempting, but if it's second hand then you'd be better paying a bit more for a better alternative brand new.?
If you're looking to spend just under 300 bucks look online to get new ones, the sennheiser pxc 310 cost me 290 nz landed from amazon.co.uk and only took 4 days over xmas to turn up as well. cheapest here is 484 on pricespy. A lot of sennheiser gear seems to be on special @ amazon.
The pxc 250's will cost you just over 200 landed as well, but from what I've read of the reviews if you can get something better for the same money then you'll want to try something else.
