After fierce arselicking I managed to buy this from an F16 Viper pilot who was serving with 527th Aggressor squadron when they were based at Alconbury. I am the coolest pensioner on the block.

Not quite.

These are very good, noise cancellation is decent.  24 hour battery and sound quality is good without issues over bluetooth.

What's your budget? You looking for something portable or something just to sit in the house?

Opposite ends of the scale but I bought my dad a UE Boom 2 a while back for £100 or so for him to take on his holidays and play around the house and he's really happy with it.

Had a Bowers and Wilkins Zeppelin for a good 5 years or so now and it's f***ing mint, but pricey. The new version has Bluetooth, airplay, Spotify play etc and I'll 100% be getting one if my current one packs in. Can get a refurb for £399.

Had a listen to a Sonos One a while ago and that sounded really good and always seems to review well, £200-ish usually I think.

I’ve got Sonos in my flat, can’t really experience it fully because I can only turn it up to about 15%. But it’s a good speaker.

Probably thinking around 200 - 300 mark, with in built voice activation- though I’m not sure how much I’d use that, also would like good pairing with iPhone, high sound quality ( for podcasts also ) like my music loud but not really possible where I live so quality first
