Summary: I think the headphones work great when traveling. They are comfortable and do a great job cancelling the noise of the engines of a plane or the crying baby sitting next to you. However, if you were to fall asleep and push the headphones against the head rest, there seems to be a low pressure created...
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: 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".
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
