The volume control is not intuitive, and sometimes the power buttons act funny.
ezjay
The batteries in the small transmitter gave way after a week but it was easy to set up the supplied wall wart power.
Mr Mike
I use them to watch TV when I want to crank up the volume without disturbing anyone and for listening to music.

I bought these not expecting much and was utterly blown away by the sound quality. The KLEER technology they use results in audiphile grade sound without any of the noise or interference I have had with previous wireless units. I have used them constantly for television and critical listening to music (I'm a musician) for over a month and the batteries in the phones are still holding up. The batteries in the small transmitter gave way after a week but it was easy to set up the supplied wall wart power. They are especially great for late night TV and listening to music in my condo without disturbing the neighbors. Reception is great even upstairs. The phones design is very comfortable and they are well made. The only disappointment was the lag in transmission made them unusable for playing my guitar. For everything else you don't really notice it. Highly recommended and worth the price!

If static and interference concerns you, pay a few extra dollars and get yourself a good set of digital headphones like the RS 160. All wireless links are affected by low signal strength and interference, the effect on audio quality is a major difference between analog and digital modulation. As the signal quality deteriorates in an analog system the listener hears increasing amounts of static. Very annoying. In a digital system, the audio is reconstructed from a bitstream (ones and zeros) received from the transmitter. Sophisticated error correction routines are used to "fix" errors in the bitstream resulting from interference or low signal strength. The result is perfectly clear audio until the bit errors overwhelm the signal processing in the receiver, then the audio simply drops out and you know you've strayed a little too far from the transmitter.

The RS 160 uses integrated circuits by a company called Kleer to transmit CD quality audio, and that's exactly what you get. The sound is fantastic and limited only by the hardware and cup design of the headphones themselves. Audiophiles may want to step up to the RS 170 or RS 180, but for television, computer, or music at night when the baby goes to bed...these are perfect. You'll hear things in your music you weren't able to hear before using high quality headphones.

The on/off/mute button is easily found on the headset, as are the adjacent up and down volume buttons. I put alkaline batteries in the headphones to test them right out of the box and put the rechargeable batteries in to charge overnight. Every week (5-10 hours of use) I plug the headset into the power cord that normally feeds the transmitter to recharge. The batteries have never run down.

This is a good product and, with comment, I would recommend it to friends.

1) Sound: In spite of having old ears (70) I listen with critical intensity and am still aware of limitions in many CDs, LPs and speakers. I consider this headset "very good" -- with clear highs and midrange. I would prefer 10% more bass but could easily provide it with my intermediate amp.

Separation is excellent -- true stereo, no matter where you sit. Of course, this is a benefit of using a headset rather than discrete speakers.

Presence is good -- one feels that the singer or lead instrument is up-front, clear and emphasized.

Although I am not aware that anything specific is missing, the Depth of the orchestra seems limited -- no instrument is farther back. But this is also true in most bookshelf and medium floor speakers. It's not that something is missing in the headset; it's that something "extra" exists in large, high quality speakers (or multiple speakers).

2) Range: Less than advertised but not a problem. In the house, my signal quits about 30' to 40' from the base unit. This is through 2 walls, which may be the determining factor.

3) Setup: Simple, except that I was unable to determine if one needs rechargeable batteries in the base unit. Documentation suggests No but I finally decided Yes to avoid any damage.

4) Convenience: Good -- depending on your physical setup. I leave everything routed, taped down and on Charge. To listen, I activate the source (WMP/MP3@256Kbps); unplug the headset from the charger; press the Base-unit button; and, press the Headset button. (My amp is always On, or that would be another step.)

The headset buttons are poorly designed but are not a problem.

I have cheaper set of Seenheiser wireless headphones that I have had for a few years. The volume control was malfunctioning, so I decided to buy this new set. The sound quality on these headphones is good, and there is no hiss. But, I was disappointed with the volume. No, where near the volume of my old set. They are reasonably comfortable, but the ear pads have no ventilation causing sweat to form where they contact your head at just room temperature (70 deg F). There are three control buttons near the bottom of the right ear piece, volume up and down and on/off. It takes a little getting used to without taking the headphones off and looking at which button is which. Plugging the charge plug into the headphones is kind of awkward and difficult if you don't have it aligned straight in. And, why didn't they offer a charge cradle set up? For the money ($200) I expected more.

Update: I upgraded my TV and it had no headphone jack and only digital audio out. The only way I could get the these headphones to work on the digital audio out, was to purchase a digital to analog converter box. After that they worked fine and with adequate volume. I've noticed the earpiece material is cracking, perhaps it's from me wiping them off with disinfectant wipes. Also, I've notice the microwave when running will interfere with reception. Otherwise the Kleer technology works great albiet they don't seem to have the range of previous wireless headphones I have owned ( sony and seinheser).
