Which model? We've found variation in quality across the Bose headphone range.

they are £99.99 cant find model name on HMV website. sorry cant be more helpful ian
if there are on or over ear they sound very bright. very detailed very clear. but not to my taste. i prefere the bose in ear £79 quid for
mp3 use, sound great with ipod. but i would not use them for hifi use.
I presume these are the Bose headphones you are referring to
and out of the headphones available at HMV, I would say that with your voucher they are a very good buy. Bose are often praised for the sound and regularly criticised for their prices.
Internet - laptop - DAC - amp - lots of headphones.

I have been using this around/over the ear headphones for about 6 months now. I use it with both my hifi and ipod. It does provide detail sound and the bass is quite defined. It does isolate noise to a certain extend but long usage makes my ear sweaty. Still a great buy if u just need top up 60 quid. Got mine for 120 quid from a bose store.

I think you can always (especially with headphones) find gear with much better price/performance ratio than Bose. Have you tried to look up more headphone-focused brands like Shure, Sennheiser, Ultimate Ears etc?
