This is actual worth it.

 

This devise serves it's purpose very well. Since I've bought this I've had more freedom to use my iPhone 5 without worrying about the battery dying. If you are always on the go this is the devise for you to charge your iPhone 5

You can't listen to wire earbuds while the iPhone is in the charging case. Taking pictures with the rear camera gives a slight halo at the bottom of the picture due to the way light enters the deep camera aperture in the back

Nicely Done

 

Great for TV viewing. Limited reverb from volume from TV or soundbar. A lot less expensive than top of the line and very comfortable to wear. Note: Power buttons on headset and transmitter. Would buy again.

Needs More Compression

Almost Perfect!

 

I've had these headphones for a little over 6 months now and I have to say, these are by far the most comfortable over head style headphones I've ever had (and I've had many). No fatigue, no sore ears, no headache, even after long hours of listening....

Great sound, Extremely comfortable! (even after several hours)

Weak bass, A little pricey

Great sound and easy to install

 

Worked the first time perfectly. Great for those that need high volume so the rest of the household can be at peace! The optical digital connection is perfect to interface with many devices. The sound quality is superb with my options to select such as...

Elegant design, lightweight, comfortable headset, easy setup, intuitive controls, quick charging $ great battery life, digital surround and long range. What more could you want? HDMI? Sure, for several hundred dollars more... Hooked up to a high-end...

MDR DS6500 vs. Sennheiser RS170's

 

The Sennheiser's and the Sony's both sound great they have a lot of punch and crispness. Sennheiser specializes in headphones and microphones (I understand), so the RS 170's have the signature sound of the excellent Sennheiser products. They do not...

great sound with excellent frequency response, with both analogue and digital input

sony does not allow you to buy stand alone headphone to use with the base station

Consumer review by:

Very good Headphones

 

Sound very similar with the MDRDS6000, but don\'t have the interference. It feel a lot better using it. The battery also last longer.

Very good, high-end wireless headphones

 

So, I've long been wanting a good wireless headset that could connect to both my computer and office Blu-ray setup (40-inch Google TV in this case) at the same time. So far, this is the best set I've seen on the market, and while it's close to perfect...

Well-built, clear sounding, comfortable, ergonomic

Lacks punch, hard to feel buttons, no auto turn-on

Consumer review by:

Simulated 7.1 output, not 7.1 input

 

I think by 7.1 it means using the virtual sound technology to upmix either 2.0 stereo sound input or 5.1 channel sound input to 7.1. I don't think SPDIF supports 7.1 sound. I have ordered it and we'll see soon. Let me put five star for now.

Consumer review by:

7.1 FYI

 

To previous reviewer (Patatas): The Optical input will pass the older compressed DD-EX and DTS-ES 7.1 audio formats. It will not pass the new uncompressed Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Codec, HDMI is required for this. When using the optical connection, a...
