Pros:Good wireless range, headphones fit well and are comfortable
Cons:Low sound quality, does not come with AC adapter for transmitter, poor quality wiring
The Bottom Line: Unless your expectations of quality are low and/or the product would be used to listen to a low quality sound source, avoid this particular product.
The transmitter is fairly compact thus easy to place in a safe location and it seems to keep a balanced footing in its cradle. However this product comes with NO AC adapter plus the 9volt battery clip seemed rather fragile on top of the wires for it were about an inch too short to put a battery in without risk of tearing the wires. The wires to connect the transmitter to the audio device (mp3 player, pc, etc) were functional but appeared just as fragile and prone to tearing.

The headphones were comfortable and adjusted to a very nice fit. I found these headphones to have a very low sound quality, extremely low bass response and they carried quite a bit of distortion at volumes over 50%. The battery cover for the 2 AAA batteries which power the headphones fell off 5 times before I successfully got it to stay on and once I took it back off to put the batteries in the retaining block on the cover fell off in my hand.
After sampling several audio sources this product went back in the box. I decided to keep using the tape mended headphones that I've been using for almost 5 years rather than deal with the shortfalls of this product.
