Ironically I have decided to buy some of these US$299 after being involved via email from when they were first launched on Kick Starter or whatever it's called. I want them for my hearing loss... (very cheap compared to proper hearing aids!)

Ironically I could have got them for about half that if I committed early but initially thought it might have been a scam or something. But appears legit..

Edit: Ordered... US$299 + GST $29.90 = A$450.31

I remember seeing those when they were in development, good reviews 👍 Hopefully you don't get any irritation wearing them for extended periods.

Won't be as bad as the irritation I get from Trish when I ask her to repeat something...  :whistler: :fum: :head_butt:

I think most of you know I returned my Nuheara IQ buds and got a refund. Not right for me.

Anyway, I just spent $139 (including free delivery) for a set of these (which get rave reviews from customers (for the price)

Can someone get the Guinness Book of records entry (dearest headphones purchased by Darryl Bailey)  updated please.  :snigger:

I'm going to try and sell a few of my other sets in a garage sale at the end of the month...

@CraigB   Sorry Craig, after trying on your Sony's I decided I liked the over ear ones more.

I could tell when you were listening to them that you'd prefer the over ears, the Sony cans will convince anyone though the price of your first born is beyond reason for some :snigger:

Hopefully you get your new one before I'm back there so I can have a listen :goodjob2:

Now I have a car with Bose Speakers and a subwoofer, I appreciate the difference reasonable bass makes. I'm not into Van Halen and Def Leppard quite as much these days but like "tight" bass. Our main TV's and internet devices have bluetooth, so if they are easy to pair they could get quite a work out.

If only I would fit Trish up with a bluetooth microphone...  :whistler:

I think JB Hi Fi will send them from their Chadstone Victoria store, so they could.  :Touch:

I've got realistic expectations though. They haven't got some of the nifty features of your Sony's and the sound will hopefully good (but not stellar) like yours are. I don't think with my reduced hearing I could justify say 400+ for a set of Headphones.

At least I wouldn't have to say "Eh" I get in such a lot of trouble for such a little word...  :disapp:

The JBL headphones came. I love them so far.  :happydance:

Very clear sound, good bass and easy to pair with my phone and laptop.

Want to try them with the TV but will have to wait until Trish isn't watching something.  :undecided:
