Pros: Surround and Bass Boost

Cons: fatiguing, short range

These are enjoyable headphones as the surround really envelopes and clarity shines. Overall sound lacks a little richness, highs are overpowering. Nice punchy bass, not too much. After 1.5 to 2 hours they are fatiguing as most wireless headsets are. They are very light weight and comfortable. Having trouble with range in my house. It disconnects at 25 to 30 feet. Great for music or movies and even iphone. Bought refurbished from Dakmart for $170 and after 6 mos of heavy use, no problems.

Not sure, but these don't seem to have the same problem.   However, these come with their own set of problems, which Sony didn't have: - There is no auto on/off switch - you have to at least manually switch both base station and headphones on every time you want to use them, which is quite...
