Thanks,,. Exactly what I was after!

Hey hey! I've been looking for some cordless digital headphones for ages. These go for around £100 on Amazon, so this seems like a great deal. Fingers crossed the sound quality is as good as the reviews suggest.

Really tempted by these but don't seem to have found many reviews of them (other than Amazon) by the hi-fi brigade and both Sony Centres nearby don't stock them.

Very tempted though .....

Took the plunge so we shall see if they are any good. Will report back ...

Dammit ...£42.99 now lol

I not really an expert. They sound fine and the base is also fine. I'm using it for my PS3. I did listen to some music and again'you guessed it,there fine. I'm sure you will be happy,I am.

Thanks for the review! Looks like they'll be fine then :-)

Looks a good deal

Really interested in getting these, just wanted to know about the noise isolation on these? Also are they really big, don't want to look funky while wearing them outside connected to my phone.

Anyone got these can answer the above questions?

You couldn't wear these outside attached to your phone. They are full size headphones, and the transmitter unit would require to be plugged into the mains.

They are however *excellent* for use inside as i have described.
