Geat product

Does not always connect, sound choppy


I bought that set because it was the best wireless set available and was willing to pay premium for a good brand. What a disappointement. Most of the times it does not connect. If I sit next to the computer and when it connnects it is nice sound.

Good sound quality when it works

Difficult to connect, works on some systems and not on others, expensive

Not Compatible with Win 7


Maybe some day there will be a stereo headset that can pair with a win7 machine, but not this one

great concept, does not perform well

Does not work with Win 7 ; Do not purchase if you intend to use this device with Win 7

Sound and feel great.


I bought these 3 years ago after my Kenwood KPM-610's ear pads disintegrated. Back then I was afraid wireless audio wouldn't measure up, but it does. The ear pad's on DR-BT50's are about 10x more comfortable than my Kenwood's were. Positioning the...

17 hours/charge, and very comfortable
