Summary: These headphones are amazing if you value sound canceling above all else. These are so unbelievably comfortable, and the quiet that you can achieve when flying justifies the price tag right there. My only real gripe is that the sound is not necessarily the best out there.
Pros: Sound canceling is unrivaled, Extremely comfortable, Decent sound
Cons: Better sound can be found for less money, Relies on a battery to function

Pros: The headphones are quite comfortable and offer a low and high setting depending on what setting you are in. Also, they cup the ears very well which helps with the noise cancelling abilities.
Cons: Some cons with the headphones are that if you lean to a side and compress the headphone over your ear, it sort of hurts and creates a really loud weird noise. Also the cord is pretty frail and rips near both of the ends. I am already on my second.
Summary: Although the price is high, if you suffer from a hearing loss (as I do) these headphones are a good choice. I connected my headphones to my Yaesu 857D (with a mono adapter in the speaker jack.) I was impressed on how well I was able to hear the audio of the rig.
Summary: We have the smaller system with single speakers (5) and a single CD player. Although the larger system was @ $1000 more, we would consider the additional investment if making the purchase today.
Pros: Sound quality is great
Cons: No audio adjustments (base/treble) on systems

Summary: My system had a problem with the audio. It was missing some sound frequencies to my ear when compared to other same model systems. Went many times to customer service and the unit returned the same until they replaced all the boards with a note "just for custumer satisfaction, no problem found".
