Best purchase in a while

Posted on Updated on

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!

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!
