How did you get on with delivery? Thinking of taking the plunge on .es, they're 259 at the moment. Did you ship them direct to your address?

I have the QC35’s but last week I bought the QC20’s as needed something that would fit in pocket on a night out instead of bringing the overhead 35’s...good decision so far!

Came straight to my own address. No issues at all. Loving them so far to be honest. Had to turn down the noise cancelling to low as I had a slight issue with the pressure on my ears! It's perfect for me on low! Might go back to full noise cancellation next week and see do I still have the issue

That's great. You get used to it after a while, they're great on a bus/luas at full NC.

I'm getting a train next weekend and am genuinely looking forward to trying it out! What has my life become?

Having owned a pair of QC 35 v 1 for over a year i can safely say it is one of my best purchases.
I dont think battery level has ever dropped below 50% in that time.

Great build quality, and i wouldn't dream of getting on a plane or train without them .
It really is a game changer. only 2 weeks ago i was on a flight with over 15 babies on it and i was able to block them out with music at only half volume.

Only drawback is i cant use them for exercising as the sweat would soak into the top cushion.

Would recommend at any price.

I’ve been using my QC35ii for a couple of weeks now. I find the sound quality is excellent and they are very comfortable. I would highly recommend them.

How did you get it to ship to Ireland? It looks like they will only ship to Spain.

I got mine last week from Amazon.Es and the blue set didn’t ship to Ireland but the other two colours did.

is there a non-noise cancelling version of these - tried on a pair and the "pressure" didn't feel comfortable. I don''t think I need noise cancelling as a feature...

No. You want the Bose sound link II.
