Hi, after trying out a pair of quietcomfort 2 headphones at our bose outlet, i have been thinking about buying a pair. even though my local store is a factory outlet they only sell new models for 299. bose warned not to buy from other websites because they might not be real bose products. i dunno about that. what do you all think? and does anyone know of any good deals on these? i am one of those people that hates (and will not) pay retail, i'll look around until i find a deal, even if it's not much, or i feel like i am wasting money and also makes me feel guilty, so any tips? thanks!
