Time to let a few of the noise cancelling headphones go before getting the Sony MDR-1000X, otherwise SWMBO will have my head.  

 

(It'll be a head still wearing the QC30 or QC35, which helps explain why these cans must sadly depart...)

 

 

 

Bose QC25 - fantastic noise cancelling headphones, 2.5 years old now but in immaculate condition and still very much on par both in terms of audio quality and cancellation with the QC35.   Will come in the original hard case and cable with inline control (Android), but with a replacement flight adaptor.
$220.

 

 

 

AudioTechnica ATH-ANC9 - bought in May this year in Melbourne after I left home without packing the QC25.  Much much better sounding than the Bose 25, 30 or 35.  I can actually sit at home and enjoy listening to music with these on whereas it's hard to do that with the Bose.  However, only ~ 80% of the noise cancelling which is why they've had less than 15 hours of use.  Comes in the original hard case, cables and flight adaptor.  $200.

 

 

 

Sony MDR-ZX770BN - noise cancelling bluetooth headphones, bought in June last year solely because they were on sale.  Very good sounding headphones although too much bass for me (I prefer the flatter/more even response of the ANC9).  Comes in the original soft bag and a replacement micro usb cable for charging.  $100.

 

 

 

All prices include shipping, add $10 extra for rural delivery.

Where are you going to get the Sonys from? I can't find them for sale in NZ.

I had an order with Addicted to Audio (Melbourne) which was put on backorder yesterday, next batch of black sets arriving in late Jan/early Feb.  They'll have some more cream/beige arriving in a couple of weeks apparently.

 

I guess the plan is to leave the order in place and see if anything else becomes available in the run up to Christmas.

I'm tempted to get some (there is a pair on TM at the moment BTW) - do you know when they will be available in NZ?

 

Sony seem to be very poor at getting things here - I still can't get the proper case or Quickcharger for my XZ phone 6 weeks after launch.

The NZ site says not available yet which probably means Sony Australia aren't sharing and the Australian site says back ordered which means they're not getting any either.

I'll be ordering the phone case from the UK where it is available ex-stock. Rang Sony Store in Auckland and they could not tell me when it would be here. But it's only the fact that we save the GST that makes us buy overseas.....yeah, right.

I just left the Sony Store in Westfield Riccarton and they have one on display.  Staff were occupied so I didn't ask about stock levels.

Sony told me via their Facebook page that they're planning to release them here in February.

 

I ordered a pair off Amazon the other day when they were on special, for just under $620NZ including shipping and import fees.

About time they updated their website then. "Availability: This item is currently unavailable"

 

 

 

And re-opened the Sony Store in the nation's capital...!
