Pros: Excellent 7.1 Surround decoding/encoding, solid industrial design and feature set, cinematic immersion

Cons: Quite clampy and uncomfortable at times, could benefit from larger cups, charging requires manual USB plug

Heya peeps,   Thought I'd chime in now that I've picked up a set of Skullcandy PLYR1 phones to replace(?) my existing Sennheiser RS180 setup (also a fairly recent purchase...), based on Jude's recommendation in the Summer 2013 Head-Fi Buying Guide.   First, some personal wireless headphone history (feel free to skip this paragraph if you wanna get to the comparisons).

Instructions were a bit vague, but got it going quickly with no problems. A little disappointed with S.C.'s customer service though. Never buying kiddie crap again.
