Zero reason to buy this and it's way overpriced. The wired earbuds are $30 on Amazon and a Bluetooth dongle (why would you need that anyways?) is $7-10. So $40 at most. And there have been deals for $225 for the XM3, making this "package" at least $30 more expensive.

these are some of the best Active Noise Canceling bluetooth headphones out there. $295 is about as good as you will get outside of primeday or maybe blackfriday. the $225 deal was from an unauthorized dealer which then Sony would not recognize so if something is wrong and it could be covered by warranty, buying from an unauthorized dealer voids that (thats my understanding but could be wrong).
Dont get me wrong, im still not willing to pay this much for a pair but i know a few coworkers who have them and i have tried them out, they are phenomenal and i can see why they would want these.

That's a cheap Chinese Bluetooth dongle you can get for $3 on eBay.

What's the model number of the earbuds? I couldn't find it in the listing. And I couldn't imagine you'd want a cheap set of earbuds if you're looking to buy one of the best wireless headphones on the market.

Or don't work in a noisy office. Or take public transportation. Or like to hear music instead of street noise. There are quite a few reason to own NC headphones, and only one of them is flying. But that still doesn't mean this is a good deal.

I was referencing buying the bundle in this "deal" vs the headphones by themselves.
