SOUND QUALITY Excellent itís just as though they were a wired set of headphones, only without the wire. They really do work just like normal headphones.
COMFORT The flat soft foam means that they mold round your ears and feel much better than the usual curved headphones. Personally I prefer small in-ear head phones, but Iíve not seen them wireless. This design gives you great comfort for the size of the headphones though.
LOOK AND DESIGN They donít look too much different from your usual headphones except you donít have the wire. You do however have a batter mounted in one ear piece but it fits in like a glove and you donít even really see it unless you are looking for it. So overall as good as any wired headphones.
DURABILITY My only concern is the battery part. Itís a special battery and needs to be removed to charge it rather than the RS45 model where it stays in. Due to this Iím not too sure how well this treats the battery terminals. But it should last fine, it has done no harm so far. The rest of the headset is fine and wonít break in normal use. However donít leave them on the seat and sit on top of them.
VALUE FOR MONEY Around about £70 they are more expensive than some Wireless headphones Iíve seen, however I believe you pay for the Sennheiser name on them. I mean you really canít fault them. So all round they are great.
EASE OF USE My only bug is having to remove the battery and place it in the charging cradle all the time. But so long as you do that you wonít have any problem. They come complete with a 3.5mm jack (standard headphone size) and a ľ inch one too (the big size) making them compatible with pretty much everything. Just plug it in and go.
MY OVERALL OPINION Get one and save tripping over that wire. Great for walking about and will work up to about 30 meters in a house, including though walls and ceilings.
