Most likely from the UK warehouse. Check the parcel tracking to find out.

Bose have a 30 day no-questions-asked 100% refund policy if you end up not liking them if you buy directly from them.

Sadly, I did not do that. Bought them in the airport before a long trip!

I bought direct for their Bluetooth in ear headphones that I bought for running but the wind noise in them is appalling so I sent them back and it is a painless process!

I'll stick to the old fashioned wired in ear ones for running which are fantastic

Has anyone gone from these back to the QC 30 or something similar in earbud rather than over ear form?

I have the original QC35s and love them, travel a lot so use the noise canceling for it's intended use, but they are just a bit big and I often leave them behind. I'd love something similar but more pocket sized, ideally wireless too as wired earphones annoy me.

Also, anyone know how much the version 1 of these are going for second hand very good condition?

More considering how much I might get if I did.

I love them, but often find I've left them at home when I am looking for them as they are a bit big being over-ear.

I've just ordered a pair of Bose SoundSport Free true wireless - but still travel every week and long haul every month or two so not sure what to do

I use the in ear qc 20s and they are very good. The nois cancelling feature is probably not as good as the over ear options but the trade off is that these fit in your pocket!

Mine have just been dispatched from Amazon.es. Hoping to have them in the next few days. Very excited as it's my first time putting serious money into a pair of headphones. Tried them in the airport recently and it convinced me I really wanted a pair! Almost bought them there and then for 400 euro!

Camelcamel is probably the most well known site, you can have them email you if a product goes below a desired price.

Keepa is good also, it's a browser extension. I'm sure there are loads more too.
