Pros: The wireless signal is spectacular. No hiss or static. Audio is not compressed (so they say). The single biggest Pro is "these really work". They sound great. I have a pair of HD555, and they sound as good as the 555 with no wires. Ability to use up to 4 (I'm using 2 concurrently now) with 1 transmitter. I use them to listen to music (via Airplay) and to watch movies. They work great. No more wires, it's just awesome.
Cons: Id take a half star off for some things. It is possible to create interference to block the signal, but you have to go out of your way to do it (put an iphone5 right next to the transmitter and download an app over wifi). Pairing the 2nd, 3rd, 4th headphone is a little more work. Understanding how to make it turn on, pair, use multiheadphones is a little complicated (read the included PDF to get a good understanding of the instructions). The buttons on the headphones all feel the same, and it's volume up, power, volume down, balance left, right. Bad design there. The signal doesn't pass through wall or doors very well. It works great in the house, but on the deck 20 feet from the transmitter I started loosing the signal.
Other Thoughts: Except for a few quirks, and that aweful button placement, these are still GREAT! No wires, terrific sound. I have no qualms, my wife and I love these things. I used it for 1 hour and immediately ordered a 2nd pair for my wife. Movies and TV shows are so much better now, no wires to trip over. It makes audio such a pleasure now. Here's a fun trick. using an iphone, stream music to the AV receiver over airplay, and listen via these wireless headphones. Talk about no wires!
