Good price. I paid $169.99 on BF (Amazon). Amazon is now back at $198.00

Didn't this model just come out recently? How is it over 50% off everywhere already?

Wondering if the sound and ANC can hold up vs the higher end brothers. Personally I don't mind paying more if it's justified.

1000XM3 $350(minus coupons).
Or the Bose QC35II refurb around $200.

Where can you find the QC35II for that price?

Because headphones have extremely huge markups for some reason

Apparently the ANC is not as good as the one on the 1000XM3. It depends if you want a neutral/balanced sound or if you're a basshead. Have to say, having owned the previous iterations (XB950BT), these are some damn fun headphones. I still enjoy my other snooty "audiophile" headphones for some critical listening, but these cans are definitely the best for rocking out to heavy beats.

QC35ii's refurbs were about 20% off in BOSE Stores - Notably, @ Toronto Premium Outlets, last week they were around 179.99 (before tax). and around 191.00 at the BOSE store in Yorkdale and other BOSE locations (that carried some QCii refurbs).

I assume, that they would be around 215.99 now since the 'additional 20% off of Refurbs' was for the sales (It may come up again around boxing week).

From the thread, it seems like QC35ii Refurbs will come in stock periodically (weekly).

-IMO, I'd probably try and call the BOSE store closest to you, to see if they stock the QC35ii Refurbs, and get a pair of those rather than the XB900N for a $50ish difference it's very worth it for what was the best in class ANC headphones for years. However, the XB900Ns are no slouch, they're comfortable, have more bass, charge with USB C, adequate ANC.

Where did you hear the QCII refurbs will be in stock weekly? And is this at all outlets? Drove all the way to Premium outlet in Toronto only to have the last set sold two minutes before I arrived :(

Artificially inflated MSRP. Nobody was supposed to buy this thing at $350, it was pretty much $250 every other week.

Someone went to the BOSE Outlet, and they mentioned that they get stock every week. Quantities depend. I highly suggest Calling the stores if you're interested and asking if they can put one on hold.
