Chris,

Yes, MS hijack and manipulate anything and everything they can get their hands on. Dell are the same - I have found.

Perhaps Bose think that the more gimmicks they cram into a product the more appealing it will be to the potential consumer? To me, less is more; that way you can, as you state, add your own colouring.

I did some research on Bose and they, apparently, use a completely different concept to all other manufacturers. They base everything (design/specs) on 'psycho-acoustics'. In other words, they anticipate, or believe they are able to anticipate, what it is exactly that the end user wants to hear. They believe they are correct so that the end user does not have to do anything whatsoever in order to make the music (phones) sound any better. But in their defense, they don't seem to cut corners with anything relating to their products, so that's something at least. I can see their goods being very popular with non-musicians, which is fair enough.

I wouldn't have any problem buying those ones off ebay for £49. They are ex-demo by the sound of it. If they do exactly the same job and are in good condition then why pay full price?

Hi,

These are the ones I am going to go for. Trouble is, Sony has discontinued them since the start of this month (how's that for timing!). So tomorrow I will be making the purchase. The £49.00 have been on the shop floor and so loads of idiots will have been trying them on. I think I will spend an extra £20 and buy a new pair. A guy on eBay has offered me £75 and free postage, with a one year warranty. The are also brand new and in original box.

I would never use Bose after their shoddiness. PC World is a non-starter. Sennheiser and Beyer are very good. But Sony seem to be the best regarding this whole headphone malarkey.

Ta,

Paul

Buying something on Ebay where the sellers says it is brand new often turns out not to be the case. IF they are brand new then they should be in a SEALED box. If that is not the case then they cannot be described as BRAND NEW.

What people often do is describe as Brand New "other" which means they are in new condition and have only been taken out of the box for inspection....of course they could just as easily have been used and you would never know. Ebay is great just got to keep all these things in mind when considering what price you are paying.
