Top customer reviews
Well made, good range around the house, excellent storage and charging with the cradle - very convenient and always ready.
Some sound distortion as distance increases, short cable from the cradle to headphone socket of device being used, loose vertical fit.
To explain the last two points.
We wanted to use this for the TV and the Hi-Fi but could not find a suitable place to locate the cradle (which needs mains power) where the cable would reach both items even though they are within 2 m of each other. We overcame this by buying a headphone extension lead. (You might also want a mini to 3.5 mm convertor if using with Hi-Fi.)
The top band is structural and the lower of the two bands sits on the top of the head. The lower band has elasticated ends which are quite loose. Consequently if you have a smallish head, the headphones seem to sink down lower than expected.
Overall we are pleased with these and have used them to listed to our Hi-Fi while in the kitchen or in bed but mostly they are used to listen to the TV while ironing as there are no leads to tangle.
They are still comfortable after 2 hours use. I would certainly recommend these for their convenience alone.
These are pretty much the best compromise you can get out of all of these. Not terribly expensive, comfortable, light, decent sound, good battery life (all day), removable batteries (just in case), good range, easy charge (no fiddly cables), straight forward to use, no annoying sound normalization (one thing that annoyed me with the Sennheiser and Panasonic), decent sound isolation, three channels. There is some slight background white noise, but this is true of pretty much any RF headphones you will find on the market. They are not meant for HI-FI listening, or gaming (although that works too).
They don't feel particularly solid, but are well built. Just look after them and they'll be fine. Better than the cheaper generic RF headphones you will see. If you are looking for some cans to potter around the house while keeping the noise down, or just don't like to be tied down with cables, they'll do the job.
The only negative for me is that the bass sound is much more pronounced than my previous Sony pair, but I have become accustomed to the different sound over the last three weeks.
