    Look for a pair of the Sony XM3 or xm4
    They are the previous versions and are excellent and if you shop around can be had for under $400

    • Hi thx ur reply, if i choose QC45 and sony xm4, which one u suggest?

    I have both the Sony 1000XM4 and Sennheiser 550ii headphones. And I hate the Sony xm4's they are hot, and the user interface compared to the Sennheiser is junk. But my biggest issue with the xm4 was that they removed the aptx codec that was available on the xm3 and my cellphone doesn't play nice with the Sony ldac codac (sound distortion on some high notes when using Bluetooth).
    As such I highly recommend the Sennheiser 550 or 550ii units, but your milage may vary.

    • Thx

    • Thanks for this feedback.

  • No idea if they've been published on anyones sites yet but that $689 asking price will drop hard after a few months. Id expect Noel Leemings CSC groups to drop it to 400 and a fart, Same thing happened with 1000xm4 and 1000xm3

    • Hope so, if can drop the price in July will be better hhhh

                @tonykwok8: Yes.
                That is the best way to do it.
                I order online for collection. Only been asked for ID to verify it was me collecting the order.
                Never been asked for verification of discount code entitlement.
