  • Summary: do not buy just as the other reviewer said. they are originally $100 bucks and now with $40 bucks off I still would not buy them, very unhappy with this sony product. I would not pay 10 cents for these things.
  • Pros: none
  • Cons: these things are junk, have had them since august and they are the biggest pieces of junk i have ever own, sound quality is rotten and the dam things do not sit in the cradle worth a darn.

  • Summary: These phones have pretty good clarity with little noticeable distortion if set correctly and with a direct line of sight to the receiver. Product description says 24 foot distance limit, but in reality, it's more like 15.
  • Pros: Comfortable for their bulk. Wireless...but that's the point, right? flexible connectivity options. Seem well made.
  • Cons: Stay away from your plasma when wearing these.... Get w/in 2 feet of your plasma and you'll blow your ears out with distortion. Tricky sometimes to get the phones to seat on the charger correctly. Controls on headphones are tiny.

  • Summary: I haven't tested any range longer than 10 feet. They are circumaural but only barely - they squash my ears back but at least they don't rest on the ears. They feel flimsy and "plasticky" but they are light. If I could do it again, I would get regular radio wireless.
  • Pros: Lightweight, long battery life, strong signal no matter which which direction your facing (as long you're in the reception area)
  • Cons: Audio quality is poor for 70 dollars - if you're using high-quality corded phones, you will be disappointed. I'm used to Sennheiser's HD280 so I was expecting some loss in quality, but the price-to-sound comparison is not proportional. Hissing in the signal. It sounds like there's IR interference...

  • Conclusion: Lo de la fritura lo solucione bajando mucho el volumen del auricular y compensandolo con el volumen del sintoamplificador (lo subo bastante). Debo reconocer q antes de eso lo pensaba devolver por el ruido insoportable d la fritura.
  • Pros: precio (seconsigue usado), la calidad de sonido es muy buena (no llega a ser hig end pero se defiende), queda muy lindo arriba del equipo en su cuna., funcion vibracion para juegos (explosiones)., trae muchos cables
  • Cons: almoadillas de espuma.(deberian ser de cuero), al subir mucho el volumen tira mucha fritura.(tiene solucion)
