  1. Someone will be offended by your assumption, probs a vegan....
  2. Pretty sure your ability to hear certain tones changes with age, also your ability to even hear! So what might be "end game" speakers in your 40's will most likely sound crap in your 60's as your hearing has declined and is most likely more responsive to certain tones than it is to others. A speaker that has really detailed properties probably sounds like a bunch of muffled mumbo jumbo when you are 70 (or vice-versa) and you might prefer a warm, not so detailed sound I know certain noises that never used to bother me now annoy the crap out of me I cant understand a word people say in a noisy environment and have to try and lip read people (which can be awkward if they have crap dental hygiene) and continuously have to ask people to repeat themselves (awkward also) So, in short, end game speakers exist, just depends on what stage of life they suit. That's my take, hope it makes sense
  3. Halve the price and I will take both? 🤣 Seriously though, if people need to think about freight, consider removalists that trek up and down the east coast, would take up next to no space in a truck, will be well wrapped and always 2 guys onboard who lift things a hell of a lot heavier than these. might be 2 or 300 bucks delivered door to door Glws
  4. Thank you for your @wolster wise words, I actually had read each thread but was unable to comment on any of the 5 threads that I mentioned as they had all been been shut down. Hardly a discussion forum, wouldn't you agree? I'm all for a separate FS thread for cables but hey, if you dont like it, move on as you cannot comment on a closed thread. Sorry to the OP, not trying to derail your topic, not had the need to use the ignore list but can see where the need to might arise @Yamaha_man has suggested
  5. I'm just here to read a thread in the discussion forum that has NOT been shut down! 5 out of the 6 most recent threads have been shut down by mods, hardly a discussion forum, perhaps needs to be renamed "censored forum"
  6. Noticed the same a while ago, am forever having to scroll back up to see who even started the thread, including FS listings
  7. Classifieds forum is for classifieds, not questions, this is the perfect place to be asking Op can probably just edit the original ad with a reduced price
  8. Just an update on my purchase for anyone considering the ebay deal Mine turned up yesterday and as far as i can tell, the box was unopened, undamaged, the headphones dont have a mark on them and all cables etc unused. Not saying all will be the same result but no problems for me So basically a brand new pair for $320 with full 12 month warranty 🍺🍺
  9. Just picked a pair of the Sony's at a good price if anyone is considering them Refurb/damaged box stock from sony ebay site https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/SONY-WH1000XM3B-Wireless-Noise-Cancelling-Headphones-Black-Seconds/283282183869?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649 $319.20 with the 20% off
  10. Thanks for all the suggestions, it is only really one flight I need them for maybe more in the future when I win lotto) and if I like them I may swap them for my workshop Peltor radio earmuffs! Or give to them my son, or more likely sit them in a cupboard and forget about them. Being wireless is essential A couple of things the Sony's beat the Bose for me was: the USB C charge vs micro usb - how many times do you try to fit a micro usb plug in upside down! new tech vs old standard 3.5 - 3.5 mm ports vs 2.5 - 3.5mm on the bose - easy cable replacement longer batter life 30hrs vs 22 better fast charge on the sony better SQ not sure on the "swipe" commands vs physical button Am yet to go instore for a demo and will probably walk away with something completely different knowing me
  11. Thanks guys, found this review and I think I am sold on the Sony's
  12. Hi all, I have pretty much read most threads re: the topic and have done plenty of googling! Seems most threads are getting on a bit and wondering if people have thoughts on what is currently available? I have an upcoming long flight (10ish hrs) and the last time I did it I vowed to get decent headphones for the next trip, the constant drone of the planes engines did my head in. Would prefer to be spending no more than $300-$400 From the research I have done, seems like the Bose QuietComfort 35 II are the pick of the bunch for that price range? Comfort is a big plus, so prefer something that can be worn for a long period without being too uncomfortable Would like to hear others views/opinions etc and what I should be looking for Cheers
  13. "no debating this please everyone", ummm, isn't a forum discussion so that others can put forward suggestions and talk about the pro's and con's of them?
  14. Pretty sure my 16yo son would froth at the mouth if he thought he was getting one, in 12 months time they will probably be flooding gumtree like the older models do now.
