Awesome headphones but suffers from wifi interference.
25 January 2015
Summary: These headphones sound amazing and I love them very much. Wifi does interfere with them. If your neighborhood is not crowded (with wifi signals) and you use mostly wired connections around your house then you'll be fine. If not prepare for a lot of clicking and popping and other annoying sounds.
Summary: I've used these for over a year and they work well but are eclipsed by newer sets that operate on the 5ghz frequency. Here are a few key things to know: Pros: - Great sound quality - OPTICAL PASS THROUGH (important because some only have optical in which can be an issue) - Built in headphone stand.
Summary: I bought these for myself as a Christmas present from my girlfriend *hehe*. I got them home and was stoked. However, after a few hours the excitement wore off and I began to notice the prominent snap-crackle-pop.
A great concept, but far over priced and over hyped.

Summary: These headphones are nothing short of a cool gadget. They have clear sound, and are amazing for movies and television shows. Unfortunately, the bass is sub par. Even with the so called bass boost on, it was similar to the bass you can find on the generic apple earbuds.
Summary: When the sound is actually streaming through it is very high quality but when the popping and crackling starts it can get very annoying.
Pros: GREAT sound. I have used these while playing Skyrim and I feel that I am immersed in the sound. While playing Skyrim and first person shooters I can easily hear exactly where sounds come from e.g. behind or to the right/left. Wireless is nice Detachable microphone VERY comfortable during long gam...
Cons: When my girlfriend is using the wireless internet the headphones seem to pop and crackle A LOT, and the sound will cut out for maybe a second from time to time . I am guessing it is just interference. My Router sits only about 5 feet from the headphone base. Kind of uncomfortable while wearing gl...
Summary: I'll probably swap out the optical cable and find a way to test the mic line to eliminate them as being the cause of the pops and crackles but it's pretty ridiculous to even have to deal with that after paying $140 for a headset... it should be PnP and sound wonderful out of the box.
Pros: Easy to set up, light weight and feel great on the head. I've worn them for a few hours at a time with no discomfort.
Cons: I'm getting the dreaded 'popping and crackling' with this headset. Not sure if the 360 causes any interference but my router is approx. 25' away from the transmitter and in another room so I would hope that the transmitter isn't THAT sensitive. The batteries are fresh Duracell's so that shouldn't...
I Like it, but one huge flaw with the hookup I didn't know about.

Summary: EDIT: I have owned this unit for about 14 months and it is starting to fail. I noticed a loud pop a couple of days ago and then the audio started cutting out in the highs and lows. It seems there is a loose wire or something in the headset and depending on how I move it, it stops working.
Summary: For $170 I don't want to hear a bunch of popping. I don't know anyone who isn't using wireless now days and TB should have come up with a different way to transfer audio to these. I have never had any problems with bluetooth so why couldn't they go that route?
Pros: Great Sound...At times Comfortable Wireless... as long as it is the only wireless device you own
Cons: Cant take any interference. I have to shut off my laptop and desktop wireless completely to get these things to stop popping. Its so bad at times that there is no sound but the popping. I'm also beginning to think maybe my XB Slims Wireless is causing problems too. I seemed to have a lot more pro...
Summary: I have many more cons than pros, but I do want to say that, overall I'm satisfied with this headset. It puts out good sound although I don't pick up on the surround sound like I hoped. Maybe because it's just a two speaker headset. TIP for the battery compartment.
Pros: Good sound. Gets loud if you like it really loud. Fits around my ears without bugging them too much. Works for PS3 too. - Additional equipment required 8-)
Cons: I don't notice surround sound like I hoped I would :( A tad heavy. Yes it runs on batteries so those do add to the weight. Range - I can't walk into another room without loud crackles. Not a big deal. It would be cool to hook up an iPod to it or leave it on for the occasional bathroom break. Ther...
