Not that kinda $ good

Jaason R., Newegg
19 March 2014
  • Summary: I picked up these same headphones at a brick and mortar for like 60 bucks on clearance. After using them for a year though I could never see myself spending 250 on these. They are just not worth that kind of money. If you can pick them up on a huge discount then go for it.
  • Pros: Sound quality is just OK. The battery life is good.
  • Cons: NO noise reduction because of the fact that they do not cover your ear completely. Not worth 250 at all.

Good but not very durable

Quang Q., Newegg
12 May 2012
  • Summary: Two purchases of these is enough. I'm going to try something different next time.
  • Pros: These headphones work very well. The sound quality is fine and the range is good given the limitations of the IR technology (line of sight use only). They have a cheap plastic feel to them but they are reasonably comfortable as long as the ear pads are in place. The rechargeable battery lasts at ...
  • Cons: I've owned 2 of these headphones and they both failed after about 1.5-2 years of 2-3 hr/day use. I suspect the problem is broken wires internal to the units since the sound intermittent when they are flexed. Also, the foam pads over the ear pieces wear out about every 6 months but replacement pad...

They work

Ira G., Newegg
3 January 2012
  • Summary: I originally bought them for my father so he could blast his tv's volume without disturbing his neighbor (he's in a nursing home). Then I find out he doesn't want anything on his ears so I took it home and I'm using it.
  • Pros: They work well enough.
  • Cons: When you put them on max volume you get buzzing.

Excellent buy

Jason M., Newegg
21 November 2011
  • Summary: The hiss hasn't been a problem yet because with the source volume near max, the hiss-free range of volume is more than sufficient. Could be a problem with a weak or distorted source at elevated source volumes.
  • Pros: Easy setup, effective area is much wider than I expected. Sound quality is decent enough for headphones.
  • Cons: Headphones emit a snowy hiss at any setting more than 25% of the volume dial.

Does the job.

K7JQ, eHam.net
7 November 2011
  • Summary: I've been using these wireless headphones on a TV and surround sound receiver for over three years, and decided to try them on my transceiver. I am very pleased with the results. Sound reproduction (to my ears) is excellent on SSB and CW.

Great headset

Dimitry M., Newegg
31 October 2011
  • Summary: Solid build, comfortable, and took 3 seconds to unpack, plug in, and listen.
  • Pros: Plug, play, listen. That simple! Great audio.
  • Cons: Not bluetooth so range and area of influence is rather small. Not really a con since this product isn't meant to be listened unless in front of the TV (About a 90 degree arc of coverage).

Gets The Job Done

Anonymous, Newegg
12 September 2011
  • Summary: for the money i spent, this headphone is okay, i like it because it gets the job done, wireless is great!!!!! but i'd definately will save money and look into bluetooth wireless next time.
  • Pros: very affordable when i bought it, it gets the job done, and its pretty lightweight.
  • Cons: the quality itself isn't that great, but at that price range its expected. the phones itself is uncomfortable (extremely if you dont have the foam cushions on). since its infrared, the range isn't all that great, i'd say about 5-10 feet before you lose it. and more importantly, if you out of dire...

They work better that most

Claudia O., Newegg
27 August 2011
  • Pros: It isn't true that you will hear a waterfall and hiss in the background. It is all dependent on your setup. If you have them set to a source that you can raise the output of the source and then just barely turn up the headphone volume the it will work great. No problems standard wireless interfer...
  • Cons: Line of sight so you must be pretty much straight in front of the transmitter. 25 -30 foot range in my experience. The main flaw is the way the wire goes from ear to ear. After 2 years the connection between speakers has gone bad. To Sony's credit, these were used by kids and pretty much abused. ...
