BOSE QuietComfort QC35 II

Not a bad price for the Bose QC35 II, €275 on amazon Germany works out around 280'ish delivered. Currently on sale in b&m stores here for €330 reduced from €399 (which is a bit high!), seems to the lowest price ever on camelcamelcamel !

Had a pair, love them but they have been missing since Sunday!! Absolute mystery of epic proportions, put them down, went out for the night and could not find them the next morning in the house!

Anyways ordered a new pair today on Very.co.uk - £289

Got the xm2s on BF for 199 on amazon spain. They are great so can only imagine how good the xm3s are.
Have never tried the bose but I'd say there is not much difference in terms of performance between the bose and sonys.

I tried both before I bought the Bose - I picked the Bose because they felt more comfortable for me. They sounded similar so it probably comes down to the shape of your head!

I tried both the sony xm3 and the bose and i preferred the bose overall as well. The anc seemed about the same on both, the sound on the sonys was probably a little better esp on the low end but there was something clean about the audio on the bose and how comfortable they felt that made me prefer the bose, all the online reviews generally favour the sony's so if i never tried them in person i probably would have went with the sonys, spent about 20 min swapping between the two and the bose seem like a pair that you could wear all day. Both very good headphones though and there is no real wrong choice as far as i can see

I'd agree the bose are more comfortable than the xm2 but the xm3 are equally as comfortable as the bose and are better sounding.. changed my xm2 to xm3... As one review of the xm2 said, he put up with the less comfort of the xm2 over the bose for the sound quality but now with the xm3 it's no contest

Is this headphone in Harvey Norman for Apple devices or Android or does it do both ?

The QC25 is wired so for the latest iPhones that don't have a headphone port it won't be much good. The QC35 linked on amazon above are wireless (and come with an optional wire) so would suit any device.

I think there are separate models for apple and andriod though, maybe its something to do with the inline remote. Perhaps this is what the poster above was referring to.

The apple version is currently £130 on amazon.

Before anyone drops a large chunk on noise cancelling headphones try them out first for as long as possible.

I bought a set of QC35ii a while back and I have to use them with the noise cancelling off as they give me a pressure headache. Apparently its not completely uncommon.
