  1. The ones I use are a similar design but fully insulated. Love 'em. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com.au%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F303088736927
  2. Same situation here. When we moved into our current premises in May 2017 the connection date was October 2017. Still waiting. Current date is Jan-March 2020
  3. I have no angst against Bose. The OP was looking for alternatives to Bose, so I put forward the Sony's which have been often been cited in reviews as being superior to the Bose (which are themselves top class NC performers). I also noted that some people have had reliability issues with the Bose, just as some people have apparently had issues with the earlier Sonys.
  4. I'm glad that Snoopy8 has had a successful experience with his Bose, however, just do a google search on it. Lots of complaints about about Bose NC headphones failing on one side.
  5. Sony WH-1000MX3 are said to be the best noise-cancellers available. The previous model WH-1000MX2 are pretty similar and you might pick some up a little cheaper. The Bose are good but I have read that their reliability is a bit suspect.
  6. I remember seeing an earlier thread on this topic. Have you tried searching for one?
  7. Gold 50 was the replacement for the GX50. Surface of the Gold 50 woofer has dimples kind of like a golf ball. GX50 woofer has radiating ridges. Gold 50 has a fabric grill while GX50 has a perforated metal grill. Otherwise they look the same. I don't know if they sound much different.
  8. Yamaha WXA-50 should do everything you want.
  9. I suspect the fact that LS50's come up for sale regularly is probably due to KEF selling a huge number of them in the first place.
