5 out of 5 eggsseamless

Pros: easy to charge, auto on and off , great dynamic range for TV use and just all around no bother to use - all of the transparent functionality you want from an item like this and very comfortable to wear.

Much simpler to use than the Stenseiser (sp) type I have also purchased here which are fine but not as user friendly.

Cons: came back to buy a 2nd pair and they are out of stock/ discontinued.

1 out of 5 eggsunreliable

Pros: They are wireless.

Cons: They usually do not work. There is no way to tell when and if they are ready.
When they work there is a lag time for them to come on.

Other Thoughts: These are really irritating because they don't work on a regular basis.

4 out of 5 eggsSony wireless headset

Pros: it is amazing to be able to walk around with the headset on your head. it feels like there nothing on your head for long periods of time and i find myself almost walking out the door with them on. really conformable

Cons: on higher sounds there can be this static and same static when it is low but only sometimes when the headset is angled at the right position. i have tried different channels but the best is just moving my head lol. all of these is just what is expected for a wireless headset. maybe in the future they can be fixed or improved
