    Well, I have only had these headphones about 3 weeks now but I am surprised by the sound that comes out of these things. I have bought many headphones in the past but these headphones are the first surround sound headphones I have purchased before. I did a lot of research on them because of the high price and I wanted a very good pair of wireless headphones that have surround sound to them.

    I was looking for wireless headphones with surround sound because I have a great surround sound system with my big tv but I live in a condo and I don't like watching good movies on my big screen with great surround sound with the sound turned down low. I wanted something that I can enjoy the loudness without disturbing anyone else and to also block out some noise so I can hear the movies better.
    These Wireless headphones brought me all of that. The reviews were right. These surround sound wireless headphones are better then the surround sound system I have and I was surprised by that because I have a great system! When you put them on, they go around your ears and block out all noises around you so you can hear the movie way better and the sound quality is amazing.
    Reviews say the base from your surround system are better then the headphones. I agree there, however, your never going to find any headphones with great base power but these actually do have a small bit of base power to them and I find it is enough base in the sound to keep me satisfied.
    I have listened to music with these headphones and the sound is amazing with the music also.

    I watch tv with these headphones and I watch movies a lot with these headphones and also listen to music. Reviews say they break easy. Don't get discouraged by that. They look fine for durability. Just take care of them and don't drop them or throw them around and they should last a long time.
    Oh, and one last thing. They are light so they do not get uncomfortable wearing them for a while. I watched 2 movies and then some tv one day and they did not get uncomfortable at all the whole time. I even had my had down on a pillow watching the movie and they were actually comfortable in that position. The material in the ear piece is made durable and resistant to sweating to make them very comfortable.
    Anyway, I have said a lot so obviously I am very happy with them. So far I have no complaints.

    Explosions cut out when Volumn not Maxed

    I've had these headphones for over a year now, and I really do enjoy the clarity of the sound, now that I have adjusted to get it work correctly.

    I.E., if I don't have the volume dial of the headphones turned all the way to Max (which over all isn't that loud anyway), Explosions in movies create a LOT of static, and/or the sound POPS and Fades. It was soo annoying since it really happened on any sudden noise change in what ever i was watching that i was going to return the unit.

    I then accidentally discovered the MAX volume trick, and it cured the problem so I didn't return it. I'm quite surprised no one else has run into this. Low volume works fine if the programming you are watching is conversation mostly. But still ran into issues with commercials during normal TV viewing.

    I do see that someone else wrote about the white light. Don't think this is the same problem.

    But its a heads up to the rest of you...

          Works perfectly, no hiss, no distortion. Rechargeable batteries last a long time so far. Sound quality is perfect. Feels very comfortable. I don't get any significant hardware noise when I adjust it on my head as I saw another reviewer had written.

              Give me my wired headphones back! These things just sound awful! They were insanely expensive, and these Pioneers had the absolutely best reviews of any wireless headphones as I read review after review on the web. They sound a bit like a 1983 compact disk when digital was in its infancy and people were complaining about "bleeding ears". They are almost as bad as Bose. Alas, my daughter left my 20 year old Sony V600 phones on an airline in Istanbul, so they are gone, but not forgotten. I still remember what good sound is, and it does not come from these phones. Hmm-I still have all the packaging-maybe B&H will take them back. I will get on my knees and beg.

                  I use this on the treadmill to watch TV and block out the treadmill noise while ensuring freedom of movement. The sound quality is exceptional which is what I care most about. I was concerned about spending the extra money but CNET rated the phones so highly that Ib figured I'd take the leap and no regrets. Very convenient to use, easy to set up and it's rechargeable. Only negatives I've encountered is that when I play with the headset volume, I occasionally experience some crakling but it stops once the volume is set and the adjustable band doesn't allow me to drop the phones quite as far as I'd like on the ear. The cost of a big head I guess. Still, I highly recommend!

                    I use these to watch tv in bed late at night and I couldn't be happier. They're very comfortable and sound great. The batteries have to be removed and placed in the receiver to recharge and I kind of wish the receiver had a remote but otherwise I can't find any problems with these headphones.

                      I was expecting great sound and very comfortable headphones for the price, and only got the great sound.

                      I have a Beyerdynamic DT811 which is big and envelope my ears and a Sennhesier HDR 120 which sits very gently on my ears. This is small, more like the inexpensive Creative headphones which this replaces. It presses on my ears and my ears are just a bit larger than the inside of the cushions. I am not sure what the problem is since Bose headphones are not big and they are comfortable.

                      I was really skeptical about the IR technology, but it is working consistently, which I cannot say for the wireless HDR120's.

                      The sound is good enough that I am keeping them. My recommendation to purchase them is for the 75% of the people that would find these headphones comfortable.

                      First off, I'll address the only con. These headphones are flimsy; definitely to be handled with care. I can only assume that Pioneer designed them this way to keep costs down (and given the choice between amazing sound and durability, I think they made the right choice). Everything else about them is perfect. They are comfortable and have amazing sound. I have my DVD player connected to the digital input and my Xbox to the optical input. The sound is crystal clear, with decent bass and the surround sound is great. The only difference between listening through these headphones and a high quality sound system is that there is slightly less bass and no subwoofer. But on the plus-side, you have amazing sound with these no matter where you are in the room.They are pricey, but considering the variety of inputs and that they actually decode Dolby 5.1 it's not outrageous. It's never bad paying a bit more when you get what you pay for.There are headphones for relaxing with. I use them for movies and videogames and am very happy with them.I would also like to mention my experience with B&H. I live in Canada and received my order within a week! Amazing service.

                      As previous reviewers mentioned, any white color on the Plazma TV screen makes these cans silent. This is very anoying. Infrared transmission cuts sound also, even when you move your body a little bit. Sound is very good but not "AMAZING" as a lot of people say. Returned them after 3 days of use. Got Sony MDR DS6500. No distortion, no sound cut offs. Very nice. Sound is not that good as Pioneers but acceptable. I can walk around my house and hear TV, even go outside.

                        I use these headphones to watch TV and movies as I have hearing problems. These work very well. I can now hear most of what I used to miss during a show.
                        They are simple to set up and use. I especially like the optical and digital inputs which connect easily from the satellite receiver and DVD player and produce excellent sound reproduction.
                        well worth the money.
                        Nothing negative so far!

                            A truly unique product that delivers almost all the goods. The 5.1 effect is there and I love the 3 Dolby Headphone options inc. the DTS. Bass is good but of course it'll never replicate deep cinema bass which is a shame since these headphones DO give/replicate the surround sound effects fairly well. I will say (as nitpicks) that the 'front' channel doesn't feel too front-- meaning it can SOMETIMES seem like its sound in your head, not in a front channel... and of course you'd wish it was 6.1. But make no mistake the surround sound experience is good stuff and you really can feel sound coming from behind your left and right sides.

                              I use these headphones specifically for watching movies on the bigscreen while sitting down on the couch. The first time I put the headphones on I felt like my home theater speakers were on - the sound reminded me of not having any headhphones on while listening to the speakers around the room. That 5.1 sound was pretty amazing. The bass levels are very nice (not as nice as some equivalent quality wired headphones, though).The headphones are very comfortable, but slightly taller while on your head (you can see the double braces in the picture). The receiver is also very nice and has multiple sound options to choose from, but I always set it to "Auto" and rarely change the setting. There is a battery charger in the receiver, but you have to remove the batteries from the headphones in order to charge them (unlike other wireless headphones where the headphones charge in their own stand). I've been using regular batteries since I bought the headphones and am waiting for them to die before putting in the rechargeable batteries, so I don't know how many hours the rechargeable batteries will last before needing a recharge. If you get used to the habit of always recharging the batteries when you're done with your movie night, it just becomes habit and I don't consider it a "con".This arrangement would be very nice if the receiver also had a stand to hang the headphones on. Currently, I just place the headphones down near the TV when done for the night.These headhpones have a limited field of reception, so if you get out of that field of reception, the sound will cut out (about 60-degree angle). Also, if somebody walks in front of the receiver it will cut out - it doesn't work like your wireless phone. If there is anything in between the headphones and the receiver, the sound will cut out. So, these headhphones are really made to be used while sitting in your favorite couch or recliner with nobody constantly getting up and crossing in front of the TV and/or your wireless receiver.I would surmise that most people would be using these headphones to plug into the headphone jack of their A/V receiver so they can enjoy a show without using their home theater speakers while others snooze away. Unfortunately, this setup doesn't come with RCA cables to allow you to do that - it only comes with a coax cable. So, save yourself some time and hit your local [...] store and get some stereo RCA cables (red/white into wireless receiver and male to match your headphone jack type) if you plan on mail-ordering these. If these were included it would be a complete package.

                                Well, I have only had these headphones about 3 weeks now but I am surprised by the sound that comes out of these things. I have bought many headphones in the past but these headphones are the first surround sound headphones I have purchased before. I did a lot of research on them because of the high price and I wanted a very good pair of wireless headphones that have surround sound to them.

                                I was looking for wireless headphones with surround sound because I have a great surround sound system with my big tv but I live in a condo and I don't like watching good movies on my big screen with great surround sound with the sound turned down low. I wanted something that I can enjoy the loudness without disturbing anyone else and to also block out some noise so I can hear the movies better.
                                These Wireless headphones brought me all of that. The reviews were right. These surround sound wireless headphones are better then the surround sound system I have and I was surprised by that because I have a great system! When you put them on, they go around your ears and block out all noises around you so you can hear the movie way better and the sound quality is amazing.
                                Reviews say the base from your surround system are better then the headphones. I agree there, however, your never going to find any headphones with great base power but these actually do have a small bit of base power to them and I find it is enough base in the sound to keep me satisfied.
                                I have listened to music with these headphones and the sound is amazing with the music also.

                                I watch tv with these headphones and I watch movies a lot with these headphones and also listen to music. Reviews say they break easy. Don't get discouraged by that. They look fine for durability. Just take care of them and don't drop them or throw them around and they should last a long time.
                                Oh, and one last thing. They are light so they do not get uncomfortable wearing them for a while. I watched 2 movies and then some tv one day and they did not get uncomfortable at all the whole time. I even had my had down on a pillow watching the movie and they were actually comfortable in that position. The material in the ear piece is made durable and resistant to sweating to make them very comfortable.
                                Anyway, I have said a lot so obviously I am very happy with them. So far I have no complaints.

                                I purchased these headphones about 2 weeks ago and have had great results frOm them. I have found that mounting the receiver in the vertical position works best as it gives slightly better range so long as it is facing directly at you also doubling as a convenient stand to place your headphones on when not in use.
                                Great bass and the different virtual sound environments are pretty well done too.
                                The only con I can think of is that you cannot move around with these on as the sound crackles everytime the line of sight gets broken, but this doesn't affect my use of them as I only sit and use them as a means to watch tv quietly when the household is sleeping

                                    Using the headphones in the bedroom at night (so my wife can sleep and I can hear the tv over her snoring) with my Vizio-XVT553SV TV and the digital optical cable. The headphones are comfortable and crystal clear. The sound mode adjusts per the channel I'm on and the sound fields are amazingly realistic.

                                    The only thing I'd like more is if it wasn't infared and still had clean sound but used wireless so I could walk around still listening to the show so I'd know when the commercial was over. But it's direct line of sight only, something I knew when buying it, so it's not really a con.

                                    I had purchased a set of wireless headphones before these but took them back because there was white noise and cut out for no reason.

                                    I use these for TV and DVD watching so we don't wake up the kids. Very happy with them. I connect the optical out cable from my receiver into this unit and I get Dolby 5.1 or Pro logic sound. The surround sound simulation is pretty good. The Dolby Headphone effect is good, it makes the sound feel a bit like it is coming from speakers in front of you, rather than from headphone inside your head. Only minor critism is they could do with a bit more bass and I wish we could buy an add on 2nd headphone for my wife. Instead we bought Pioneer se-m290 headphone to plug into this unit. These actually have more bass and sound a bit better, but you news the original product to create the sound processing. Overall, I highly recommend.
