Wireless range is good.
The Badboy
Also, 1 of the 3 sets did not always go into charge mode and completely charge the batteries reliably every time and I only get an hour or so before they'd shut off.
Brent Jensen
I realize the battery has to be charged, and overall I was happy with the battery life, but I shouldn't have to switch headphones when these need a charge!

Let me start by saying that I own a recording studio, about $30,000 worth. I have used a ton of different headsets, both wired and wireless for monitoring mixes and recording vocals. I wanted a wireless headset to cut down on clutter and give more freedom when recording vocals and moving around the studio. As always, I am hesitant with any studio purchase... especially when it comes to wireless anything as you always have to worry about latency.

That said, I did a little research and came up with these headphones. As always, the Prime Membership makes all of the difference here on Amazon as 2-day shipping is free. Lets start with look and feel...

These headphones are about the size of the mid range Sony wired headsets. In between the old 80's tiny sets and the 70's huge sets. The weight is about a pound or so and very comfortable, you basically dont even realize that you are wearing them. The volume controls are easy to find while they are on your head. Wireless range is good. Dependent on what is in between you and the receiver. I was upstairs in my 2000 square foot home and they were working well, would cut out only here and there. Nothing really to worry about though, as in the studio... you probably wont be far away from the receiver anyways.

Build quality is good, they are heavy feeling without being heavy on the head. Nice soft and comfortable headband. The receiver is small and unobtrusive, though I probably wouldve taken larger with antennas for more range. Connections are easy enough, one for the power, one for the audio out. Which is a 1/8" plug. It wouldve been nice had they included a 1/8" to 1/4" converter for studio applications as I had to go to Radioshack and buy one for $6.

I have now purchases 3 sets of the AWD210 headphones and 2 out of 3 have eventually broken at the left ear piece swivel joint (where the wires go through) under normal usage! I read another review from a guy who said that his headphones broke at the same location. Also, 1 of the 3 sets did not always go into charge mode and completely charge the batteries reliably every time and I only get an hour or so before they'd shut off. I tried to communicate with Acoustic Research Customer Service about the weak swivel joint plastic problem but I got only rudeness and denial out of the jerk I talked to about it. I sincerely hope they fix these problems for the next model as I will NOT buy another pair of the 210's, which is too bad, because the headphones sound GREAT in spite of the technical and quality issues. Hope my final set lasts longer than the other two did...

Replaced old set of Advent headphones with these. Like night and day -- great sound with no background noise.

100' range honest, although intervening walls [especially those containing wall ovens or refrigerators, etc.] can cut down range. Advent 'phones had a bit more range -- but inferior sound quality degraded even more.

Caveat in buying any wireless headphones: be sure seller offers 30-day return policy so you can make sure 'phones operate satisfactorily under all the conditions in which you wish to use them. [I got mine through Amazon vendor DependableResource: no problems thus far.]

These 'phones were slightly less convenient to use than the Advents: the Advents had a combo 'phone rest/charger/transmitter. These do not. When not in use, the 'phones are plugged into the power cord for charging. When using, the 'phones are unplugged and the power cord is plugged into the transmitter unit.

However, the quality of sound is more than worth it!

The AR wireless headphones are almost perfect. The quality of sound is great. The flexible transmitter is great - batteries or AC power. However, the headphones themselves are restricted to internal rechargeable batteries. And the manufactures notes these batteries may over time quickly charge bu dissipate faster. That doesn't sound good. And you cannot listen to the headphones will they are plugged into the USB charger.

Why didnt AR allow the headphones to use AAA batteries and/or USB? Seems a little bit short sighted when the manufacturer assumes the listener can wait a few hours while recharging to listen to their headphones. Only forces the listener to use the old standby pair.

Note to potential buyers: Buy them only if you CANNOT find a pair that supports batteries and USB. And only then if the price is right.

First of all, regarding others' concerns that there *only one power cord* that has to be shared between the transmitter and headphones:

It is possible to use a cell phone power cord as well (mini-USB type) for the transmitter or headset provided the voltage is the same (5V) and it provides enough amps (e.g., 0.7A (=700mA) exceeds the 0.5A requirement). The transmitter is designed to be portable, and you can use a DC power phone charger cord in a vehicle (good for passengers) if you don't want to feed it batteries. Use of a DC cord can be a tremendous boon on long road trips.

The AR AWD210 is a comfortable wireless headset with excellent overall quality. I greatly prefer it over my Sennheiser RS 130 wireless headphones.

The range and clarity are *excellent.* I can move through most of my 2-story house and still have clear reception. The base level is set higher than I initially liked, but now I prefer it. The sound quality is good, volume ample, and the over-the-ear muffs do an exceptional job of dampening outside noise. The muffling is handy when doing chores or using exercise equipment.

The headset is slim and light compared to most other circumaural headphones, much to my liking. I can wear them at work without looking like a doofus. (I also have a pair at home.)

Follow-up: Both sets that I own have ended up breaking on the left side, the latest after ~2 years of use. I have managed a rough fix on one of them using strong epoxy, but that side can no longer swivel. The break occurs on a small, plastic axis in the swivel that cannot be replaced. Hence, I've downgraded my rating from 5 to 3 stars. I will not purchase any more headphones from this brand.
