Sony MDR-DS4000


The Sony MDR-DS4000s are simply the quietest and best-sounding wireless headphones we've tested to date.

Digital infrared wireless headphone; clean, hiss-free sound; base station automatically charges the headphones' batteries; compatible with Dolby and DTS surround

Admittedly impressive sound quality doesn't match bass and loudness response of better corded headphones; headphones need line of sight to base station to maintain connection; no digital coaxial input

Sony MDR-DS4000


I have the Japanese retail version of these phones. This is a great product. Good range, unintrusive base station, automatic charging (just return the headphones to the base station), auto-on (just put the headphones on your head to activate a slide...

Simulated 5.1 surround, automatic on/off, digital optical pass-thru, lightweight and comfortable

Doesnt recognize Dolby Surround when plugged into my sound card digital port, occasional buzzing, touchy power switch
