A visit to the USA offers a variety of ‘purchasing’ opportunities, and to be fair the family have embraced the savings to be had over the last week! I ‘discovered’ B&H Photographic in New York, it was recommended to me by Tim Garratt who seems to spend and indecent amount of time and money there. Now, I was aware it was big, but the real scale of the operation is what takes your breath away – yes they sell just about everything, but it is how all your goods get to the till without your involvement!
Also we had to return the day after our first visit with a faulty iPad keyboard – I didn’t know what to expect when trying to exchange it – but I needn’t have worried, they have a separate department for that on the side of the building, all was sorted in minutes!
My best purchase from there however was not originally planned, but seemed a good idea at the time – a pair of Bose QuietComfort® 15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling® headphones. I have fancied a pair for a while but thought the price in the UK was somewhat excessive. So at a third off they looked a ‘bargain’.
Having now used them on the flight from New York to Orlando I can honestly say they are astonishing – they reduce noise to a significant degree and also sound very good. But most of all they appeared to reduce the fatigue factor of a flight – I really can’t recommend them highly enough!
