The headphones provide good sound with anoying loud clicks. They are comfortable to wear. Battery access replacement is poor.
The good points: Their working range is good and they pick up the signal from the TV quickly without problem when I switch them on. The volume control also works well. They have an LED to indicate battery-state which flashes quickly and less brightly when the batteries need changing. Crude but enough, although you usually do not see that until you take them off, when the sound goes, but it confirms the reason.
The bad points: Occasionally there is an extremely disturbing loud sound click for no apparent reason while sitting quietly. The charging station has never worked, but in any case, I prefer to have spare batteries at hand ready to replace them when needed so as not to miss programs. Access to the batteries is poor, as is getting them out. I had to mark the cover so I could relocate it quickly and to fit ribbons so as to make it easy to get the batteries out. I use 1000mAH rechargeables to reduce the frequency of the changes and scrapped the lesser ones supplied.

I have owned these headphones for five years now & they are still as good as new.The large 40mm speaker driver delivers fantastic sound anywhere in the house.Just drop them on the charging station & thats it!The rechargeable batteries lasted for three years with constant use.Overall a very pleasing item.

Only gripe, can't handle a lot of bass
I've had these for probably 10+ years. Still using them daily. Only had to replace batteries. Any rechargables will work if you peel off the cover on the side of the battery, like it is on the original batteries.
Charging station works. It can be a bit fiddly but a green light lits up when headphones are in place.
When I play music and there's a lot of bass, this headphones just POP! It's like that interference you can get when someone switches lights on and off, it pops and I can't hear any sound at all for a second.
That can be solved by lowering the output from the soundcard and of course raising the volume on headphones, to balance it out.
Still annoying when it happens.
