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. Not noise cancelling, but seal well over my ears, very lightweight and comfortable, with no cumbersome cord. They're infra-red transmitted with wide-angle range, so no RFI conflict problems.
Summary: There nice , I paid much more for similar ones from radio shack and they were not as nice at this price a definite bargain.
Pros: Nice headphones , and rechargeable too. THey have good sound , Quality of the product if overall very good (what else would you expect from SONY ) Head phones are not heavy and all and sit/fit nicely and securly with out being annoying
Cons: Not really "a con" but a limitation of the infra red technology when you turn your head or walk out of line of sight the sound goes , but that is to be expected with the Infra Red Tranmitter technology
Summary: This is my second one of these. The first lasted several years, I just wore it out using it so much. They are lightweight, comfortable and the controls are easily accessible when on the head. Cushions are soft to the touch on the ear. I think the price is too high, but what's not. I'm willing to pay it because I believe the product is superior to others costing much more.
Summary: these are great headphones. i can watch movies without disturbing my husbands sleep, they are also user friendly. They also hold a charge for a long time. I am not sure how long because my needs have always been met without loosing power. I highly reccomend these headphones.
Good at first and then it started to have problems.

Summary: I would like to say that the only issue with this product is the base station stops the IR transmitter between 10-16 minutes. It stops at random intervals, distance isn't a factor and happens while sitting directly in front of the IR. The head phones are fully charged each time this happens. I have replaced the power supply with a universal supply and the same thing happens.
Summary: Keep in mind, these are "line-of-sight" headphones. You need to be in the same room for the headphones to pick-up the IR signal. If you want to be able to listen to sound around the house or outside, these won't work. (but they are not intended for that) Great for the home theater and not keeping your wife up at 2:00 in the morning!!
Pros: Very good quality product. Used for watching TV, Video games, computer, and listening to music. Works great for these purposes. I found that they are pretty comfortable and after wearing a long time (2-3 hrs) I had no discomfort and battery had no trouble on fairly high volume. Was easy to setup right out of the box.
Cons: A bit loose when wearing but would probably be uncomfortable if any more snug. No complaints!
