I sooo want some of these for our trip next year, the in ear ones so I can sleep wearing them.
My fingers are crossed they do this sale again and I notice on the day it happens.

Setup a http://www.pricespy.co.nz alert and the site will email when an item drops in price. It is a very handy feature for wishlist items.

Cheers, Matt.




My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

Most Bose products were on sale at JB Hifi on Wednesday when they had their Mates Cost + GST deals running. The Quiet Comfort 25 headphones were $344 that day, plus $1 delivery if shipped.

They may do a repeat at some stage, though not sure if DSE will be clearing their stock. Most of their 'sales' lately seem to exclude Bose products.

Yep - I thought this thread had re-surfaced because of the JB's sale.
I've spent (altogether) $500-$700 over the last 10 years on cheaper products that break or are inferior.
After trying QC15's on a flight back from Singapore I got the QC25's for $344 from JB's on Wednesday.
The guy who served me said that it was staff price, so it may be that they will do it again.

Good tip, thanks for that.

Just bought my triple black set in Bosr store in Brisbane yesterday. They are doing 15% off so AUD$338. With tax refund the price was too good to resist. Have listened for a bit and they're amazing 😉

That pricing really is amazing, they're now a lot cheaper to buy here than in the US!

Ah shuddup you.

I bought mine in Seattle about six months before all these shenanigans started.  Yes, I paid a lot more than all you buggers are paying now.

DAMMIT!

On the other hand, you got 6 more months of better listening than everyone else ;)

I really want the QC25's... I got a pair of QC20's, but I haven't opened them yet... as I really did want over-ears as my ears pop mid-flight and in-ears may not work well because of that.
Do I sell them and move up? Any comments?

I'm pretty sure @nate has (or had) some QC20's as well so may able to offer some advice between the two.

I found this comparison helpful. I preferred the bass on the qc25 and went for those. Sound isolation on my senheiser cx300 we're fine for daily use. So I opted for qc25 at the end.

@dunnersfella if you want to sell the QC20s, I might be interested - PM me if you need a buyer
