[WTB] Bose QuietComfort 35 headphones

 

Obviously very expensive headphones but all reviews I've seen mention that these are one of the best noise cancellation headphones under the $700 price point. Currently in NZ for around $599 but was wondering if anyone was wanting to sell theirs or if anyone knows of a better deal. Have seen it in Aus duty free and some Aus shops for $449AUD but can't find them cheaper locally.

 

 

 

Thanks.

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

The pricing in Australia currently makes them the cheapest place in the world to buy them. I picked up some for @nate for $449 less GST when I was there a few weeks ago and know about half a dozen people who now have them with prices as low as A$399 in recent times. If you're flying back from Aussie you get the bonus of also saving the GST. Myer will do 10% - $15% off the $499 ticket price just for asking, I know @chris021 got his for 15% off on Friday.

I just bought a couple for 349 in USA. I am going there next week and back on 24th. Intention was to give one to my cousin but he could not wait. If you want to wait till 24th I can give you a white one for what I paid for. I am in Auckland

That sounds good. Not in a rush to get them, just tempted! Thanks.

Sounds good! I'm based in Auckland too. You mean the silver one not the black one right? $349USD?

These must be the only product in the world that's actually cheaper to buy in Aussie than the US. If you can get them at Myer for $449 less 10% GST you save $40.82 which brings them to NZ$423 at present (+ 2.5% currency conversion if you use a credit card). Myer and a few other retailers have had them down as low as A$399

 

Compare this to the US where US$349 seems to be the price everywhere and you've also got to remember US sales tax unless you're in one of the 5 states with none.

 

There is almost a business for buying these in Aussie and selling them to Americans..
