Top critical review

I've not used anything similar before, but often wanted a wireless setup for TV, gaming and listening to music.
I was prepared for a slight delay from reading other reviews, not ideal for games but I understand the limitations of the technology.
I found that the audio jack feels a little thin when plugging it into my stereo. There was a bit too much give for my liking, it would spin around and generally not have a great connection unless you got it at just the right angle. Once there the sound quality was fine, I'm not an audiophile so maybe I missed something but it was adequate for my purposes. The only quibble I have is that occasionally it would drop out, usually for no longer than a second, maybe once or twice an hour. I was right next to it at the time, so I don't think it was a wireless connectivity issue, it felt more like it was trying to catch up with itself like buffering/streaming (purely speculation). I'll accept the kit is pretty cheap, so you're probably still getting your money's worth.
On the plus side I was able to go much further than the specified 10m to the floor below. Maybe this was more down to the headset (Novero Tour). Either way I was impressed.
Connecting devices was a bit fiddly, but once I got the hang of it pretty painless. Battery life has been good so far.
In summary I'm satisfied with what I got for my money, not sure how much use I'm really going to get out of it though.
