my dad saw these newly released headphones and is now set on getting some headphones but we are not sure they are suitable. Here is the link,

they are quite pricey so we want to be sure they are right for us and of course we are open to other suggestions. 
our main requirements in order are,
1. Good noise cancelling.
2. Good sound quality.
3. Bluetooth.
4. Can work with the tv lg 49uh850v.
5. Can work with the denon d-m41 music system.
6. Can work with a ps4.
7. Are worn over ear and are comfortable.

    Thanks, i asked Sony direct on social media but they wouldnt give a straight answer and waffled on about bluetooth profiles which put doubts in my mind. I then got more doubts because i asked if they can handle 5.1 sound and rather than say yes or no or yes but they downmix to stereo they just said the headphones are stereo.

    Hi, I bought Bose in preference to Sony > https://www.costco.co.uk/Electronics-Security/Audio-Video/Headphones/Bose-QuietComfort-Headphones-in-Black/p/279346
    These work very well and connect to my Samsung TV and my Denon sound system with 5.1

    Whatever you decide source them from somewhere else apart from Currys in case of problems

    The Sony headphones appear to have much longer battery life than the Bose headphones.

    I never put much faith in manufacturer's claims. The battery life is more than enough for me. I have used them whilst waiting for and during flight to Alicante, circa 4 hours continuous use. How long do you need?
    You might want to try before you buy? I tested Sony, Bose and others in John Lewis and Costco before deciding.
    Bose was personal choice for me. I don't think you would be disappointed with Sony.

    I have of pair of the Sony ones and they are incredible at cancelling repetitive/background noise out.
    Battery life is very very good

    I have a pair of the mk1's and they are brilliant, great sound & cancelling, comfortable and long lasting batteries. Can only imagine that they have improved with each generation.

    Exactly what I was thinking.
    They are the same price in John Lewis and they come with a 2 year guarantee:
