Excerpt: I bought these to listen to the TV. As far as sound goes, they were great up close to the TV, less than 10 feet away. Unfortunately, you could not walk away to another room as the product claims or the static was terrible. Perhaps it is just my house. The real problem for me was the comfort on my head. They just kept slipping off and felt very uncomfortable.
Pros: Compact, Lightweight
Cons: Falls Off/Out Of Ear, Too Much Ambient Noise, Uncomfortable
Wireless headphones still aren't a mature, stable product
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I love the IDEA of these headphones, but the reality doesn't live up. Lots of interference, fairly short battery life, and the range isn't that great. Still, they're good for tooling around your apartment or office for a few hours without snagging your headphone cords on everything.
Summary: Headphones work ok, though I do get periodic hiss and feedback which are mildly annoying. While these headphones cover the whole ear, they do not block out room sound which is a little disappointing.
Excerpt: The headphones sound great. Reception is clear and no static throughout the house. They are fine if you do not move your head, however if you look down they will fall off immediately. If the ear cup surrounded your ear they would stay on much better, but it sits on top of the ear which allows them to slip. I can't imagine anyone using these while working out. The downgrade to 3 stars is all about the fit. Too bad: I expected more from Sennheiser!
Excerpt: I use this to watch TV late at night so I don't disturb my neighbors. It would be best if you could try it on before buying because, as others have warned, it will fall off if you tip your head. Definitely not good to use while exercising or moving around.
Summary: Need to make it where if the transmitter shuts off the headphones do too, or at least mute. Or do you wait for the lawsuit because someone blew out a eardrum. And trust me the static is that loud.
Pros: The headphones them self are built and designed pretty good, great clear sound too. Great to listen to music or watch a movie. Really nice not to have a wires.
Cons: Only big problem is the auto shut off it has. But when the sound stops transmitting or gets to low the Transmitter shuts off not the headphones, so you have this very loud static blasting in your ears. So if you have a consent sound they great but if you pause the music or gaming where the sound gets low or you have no sound at times, they not so good.
Summary: If you are getting interference be sure to try the other channels that are available. Channels 1 and 2 would give me some slight static if I moved my head, but channel 3 works great. it also seems to work much better if the transmitter is level with your head.
Pros: Good build quality. It is designed for larger heads; I wear a size 7.25 hat and they are perfectly sized at the smallest setting, though depending on your head size that could be a con. Sound is OK.
Cons: One huge con...completely crazy con. If your PC isn't putting out any sound for about 30 seconds or so (like if you were browsing between you tube vids) it shuts off the transmiter to save power, but the headset remains active so you get to listen to static. Just to clarify, the transmitter/charger is plugged into the wall. Why shut it off and leave the battery powered headset running? It is one of the dumbest things I've seen in a long while.
