Bose at JFK

Hi All,

I was just curious if anyone knows if there is a store/stand in one of the JFK terminals where I can buy a pair of Bose QC3 headphones? Faling that, anywhere in Manhattan?

THanks all - Happy travelling!

Bose store at TimeWarner Center shops (Columbus Circle). I purchased a pair there about two weeks ago. But I would call first to see if they have them in stock.

just go to www.bose.com and do a search for retail stores. It's actually on the very top of the homepage on the right side.

Or you could buy them at www.Aadvantageshopping.com and get 2 AAdvantage miles for every dollar you spend. Pay with your AAdvantage credit card and get even more miles.

Thanks for the suggestions. I was passing through JFK before my trans-pacific jaunt and thought just maybe I might find a stand at the airport - they have a few dotted around the US that are not always listed on the Bose website right away (BOS terminal A is one example).

I can deal with my cheapo Sony pair a little bit longer while waiting for the 3-5 weeks estimated delivery time from Mileage Plas mall...

The store at Colombus circle had sold out btw....

You'll likely pay a premium at JFK; I think the idea of buying it in the city makes sense.

I'm at ORD and saw an ad for the QC3 so I started looking for a kiosk or a store... Brookstone has its own brand, but not a Bose in sight.

Searched the forums and found others asking if there's a kiosk here, and I checked the Bose web site but the only stores they list are in downtown Chicago.

Normally yes, but with Bose every retail outlet charges exactly the same price. I don't know about JFK, but when I bought my QC1 a few years ago, I was able to pick them up at an airport kiosk at DEN.

save yourself about $300 and get a set of these:

I actually prefer them over either of the Bose. I dont even take the Bose loaners on AA flights anymore.
