My wired noise cancelling earphones broke a few weeks ago and I'd been considering buying a new pair when the price was right.

Got an email from Sony and saw these. £180. Been having a tough time at work lately so thought "strawberry float it whole point of putting up with this gooseberry fool is so I can buy things I want"

A lot of mixed reviews on line but Im very happy with them.

I was always a bit sceptical about noise cancelling but when you've tried it you cant go back.

Sound drops out occassionally in busy places but the benefits far outweigh that. Feels a lot free not having a wire, which will always break eventually.

Ive pre ordered the new Xperia XZ2 compact and found out afterwards it doesnt have a headphone jack so will have needed these anyway.

Bought a new 100-300mm (200-600mm equivalent) lens for my camera, which arrived yesterday. Got the Olympus 60mm Macro lens last month.

36 tactical objective cards (inc. 6 Necron objectives) used for determining your objectives for scoring points in games, 30 strategem cards (inc. 27 Necron strategems) which you spend command points to use to gain little bonuses and advantages during games, and 6 Powers of the C’tan cards which are basically the Necron version of spells. It's all stuff in the books but it's handier to use cards.

theyre not 'bad' theyre just overpriced and not very good.
although i hear the noise-cancelling is very good so theres that at least

The "Bose are not very good" thing doesn't seem to be a thing any more going by the reviews I've read for their recent products. I made sure to read plenty for these ones before I bought them and they were all hugely positive about the sound quality. Never owned Bose headphones before but they sound better than the AKG and Beats I've used. They're comfy as strawberry float too, when I'm wearing my glasses they don't press them against my ear and get uncomfortable after long periods like other ones have.



They're amazing and have reviewed as such everywhere too. The hating on Bose meme is a load of nonsense. I don't think I'd get their speakers but their headphones are ace.

Noise cancelling has prevented me a lot of headaches travelling. Although I mainly use them in the house when I want to listen to music on my phone properly without pissing off my neighbours.

Only criticism I will grant is price but they are built extremely well and strawberry float it it was a treat at the time last year for sticking to some healthy eating goals.

The screen protector was a disaster, I don’t like the way it looks, it’s to obvious and spoils the whole look of the screen, so that’s been taken off and straight in the bin, the clear case is ok but I don’t like the black edging, the best is the folio case and I will use that with no need for a screen protector, I wish Apples leather folio was more like this one with the strap that keeps it closed as then I would buy that one

£1000 in notes would be good way to cushion it from a fall. ;)

It's nice to have a camera which actually does what it's supposed to for once.
