  1. Noticed the same a while ago, am forever having to scroll back up to see who even started the thread, including FS listings
  2. 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
  3. 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 🍺🍺
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. Thanks guys, found this review and I think I am sold on the Sony's
  7. 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
  8. "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?
  9. 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.
  10. Much better, far less strain on the eyes People only moan when there is something they dont like, if it ok you are not likely to get much feedback!
  11. Good thread! I never knew a "return to top" button even existed!
  12. Don't mind the font, but so much BOLD, everywhere, and big, black bars, running across the page, very "in your face" on a pc monitor contrasting to the white background.
  13. Haha, waiting for the thread to be shut down at any moment....
  14. My modem has connection for 2 phone lines but I only need and use 1, mine is FTTN not FTTC like the op so likely a different modem but pretty sure principle is the same, feed wire to your modem only then any extensions come from the modem, not looped off the feed wire
  15. I believe you should have 1 (pair) cable entering your property and connected to your existing phone outlet, your nbn device plugs into the outlet. Nothing else should be connected, no further loops etc from that outlet. Any further phone lines you need are connected to your gateway, not looped off the phone outlet entry point. Just had FTTN connected so have been down this path recently and ripped out all the old lines. Just cut the looped connection with a pair of sidecutters and run new phone lines FROM your gateway.
