Not that kinda $ good

Barbara 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. If not look else where for headphones with just as good quality for more than half the price. They are out there.
  • 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 least 2 years and recharges easily.
  • 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 pads are available.

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. Have to remember to unplug it because leaving it plugged in keeps the sound from coming out the other end of the computer.
  • 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. 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.

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 direct sight, the audio cuts off, the sound itself isn't great depending on the setup - my music on the pc is great, but the vocals on ps3 games is trash.
