Speaking of the Sony MDR-1000x, keep an eye out for the next JB Hi fi Friends and Familys night (cost + GST + 10%). Picked up a pair for $380 which was an absolute steal in my books!

 

 

I have been considering these for a while. I really like my Bose QC35's but on a recent set of long haul flights I found I had sore and sweaty ears after 3 hours of wearing them. I am wondering if they are better for that?

Can't speak for the Bose headphones, but while I ws down in Christchurch a month or so ago, I took the time to go for a walk round the city (first time there in 20 years). I wore the headphones from about 10am to about 5 or 6pm with only brief breaks and I didn't notice any discomfort or irritation, and this was walking around on a relatively sunny day. Battery life can't be faulted and just kept on going the whole time (with bluetooth and NC activated).

I think they - for me - were about on par comfort and heat wise!

 

 

 

I just like the sound more and the cable free element

I have had my Sony Bluetooth ones for a little while now and love them, Very comfortable and light. I am no audiophile but the sound to me is great and the noise cancelling must be working pretty good as I can't hear the missus when I am wearing them (Well that's what I tell her anway).

 

Got mine from Noel Leemings on a special down to $199 which for me is a lot to pay for a set of headphones.

Damn! at that and with my $200 gift card...

 

How do you hear about the JB sales? My fiancé used to hear about then through St John but she is in maternity leave at the moment :(





I know a little more than nothing but not much...

@dickytim it was an email from JB Hi-Fi that alerted me to the sale. Sign up to their email list and you'll no doubt get them too. I believe (but don't quote me) that armed services personnel and medical staff may get that discount normally. Wouldn't hurt to call them and find out.
