Bose QC35 - expensive, but super comfy and quiet (as the name implies) - used my friend's pair on a trip and was very impressed

Good knowledge, comes out at £250 on .es compared with £330 on amazon uk, a huge saving.

I have the Bose, but the MDR-1000X that came out a bit later is slightly better. Hand on earcup feature is nice too.

Anyone shifting a pair of bose or Sony headphones? Just need a pair for travelling but not really clued up on them, wireless would be good but not essential

Any good earphones for around the £30 mark? One with a mic/button thing.
Happy to pay a little more if I have to.
edit: also, if they're slim profile that can fit under a motorbike helmet even better.

While Sony keep making them, I'll never move away from these.

If they’re still within warranty just send them back and get another pair, I must have sent at least five pairs back whilst owning them Laughing out loud

I’ve ordered these. They look great and should have great sound.

These were terrible after using them for a while, shit little music controller piece got in the way whilst running and hardly lasted up to 2hrs, music quality was not great also.

Been using these for the past 4 months, and they are actually perfect, long lasting battery up to 6 hours. Great sound.

And the design is non-intrusive.

Would recommend as a cheap pair of earphones that you just want to f'up in the gym, decent for a cardio session too.
