It's nearly as irritating as the runbritain headphones competition.  I didn't want headphones in the first place but now I don't want anyone to have them and want the company to go into liquidation to stop them ever using pop-up advertising again.

Two days in a row so blinking annoying I'm going to report my own thread to the moderator to see if they read it and do something. Go away Mr Bose

Very tedious, will definitely not be getting Bose, Sennheiser are better anyway.

I just think it needed some Xmassy muzac over the top. You know some sleigh bells and "HO HO HO HO" as well

I had it yesterday, but not today. Although I did as Wilkie suggested and emailed them and told them in plain polite terms what I thought of them, putting at the end that I did not want to receive any promo emails in return.

Its Immediate Media showing their pure wankiness again !

Any right minded web development company would have simply said "No!" we are not doing that on our website.

I may be buying some headphones this week.  The front runners are made by Audio Technica and AKG.  Bose ain't getting a look-in; they're all marketing hype over substance.  Sennheiser can be pretty good although my last pair turned out to be a little delicate and I was never 100% happy with the sound to be honest.  I'll let you all know how I get on.

Sennheiser all the way here! I do like some Bose stuff tho; and this is definitely influencing look at alternatives. if they are trying to push a brand front of mind they are making it no 1 not to buy!!!

bose is overated and overpriced tat for people with more money than sense

sennheiser make the best professional headphones no question, ive used their stuff for work, sound engineering and club work for years and would never use aything else, but if you want pure audiophile sound quality then you should perhaps look elsewhere, beyerdynamic is a great place to start, especially if you want a nice flat response, AKG also make some real nice ones. 

For portable audio i suggest everyone buys a pair of Koss PortaPro's the design is very retro, since they are the same design as their launch in 1984, but i like the looks personally, besides that though you will struggle to find anything that sounds anywhere near as good for under £120 and they cost £25, not the most durable design but if you look after them, they are a wonderful pair of headphones to just listen to music on.

whatever you do dont buy beats though, they are utter shite. very average sound and muddy midrange, fashion brand with price tag to match.

Had a look at the Richer Sound catalogue the other week when looking for a new TV - they had a 105" Panasonic for £74,499.99!!

did you get a spare one for the bedroom at the same time musketeer

Another Sennheiser user here - HD 595, excellent.

I'm also not a fan of Bose, they never advertise in the HiFi mags and they never put their equipment into tests against their competitors.

the only decent thing bose has ever made were the 802 PA range, they really were workhorses, 

20/12/2012 at 09:50

the only decent thing Bose have made have been car speakers - they did knock out some good sounds in my old Audi

Great the pop ups have stopped....oh look, they must have paid for a banner ad now
