Work good, with a few Caveats
 from Flower Mound, TX,  Aug 7, 2010

Setup is easy (plugs into a headphone jack, so it's very easy to move them to a different device. also includes a 1/4" adapter for large-diameter jacks). If the device doesn't have a headphone jack, there is also an adapter cable to plug it into 2-channel stereo Audio Out jacks. Good bass, and very little static - generally, only has static in certain "dead" zones. Generally, moving your head slightly will clear it up. Otherwise, they sound like wired headphones. The three faults I've found are all power-related: 1) There's SOMETHING special about the AAA included rechargeable batteries, because they last much longer than other AAA rechargeables I tried. Even though the batteries say that they're just 1.2v NiMH and look very generic, they have a much longer run-time than two other sets of fairly new, fully-charged 1.2v NiMH batteries I tried (like 3 hours for the included batteries vs. 30 minutes for my batteries - quite a difference). I only tried 2 brands - maybe another brand would work better than mine. 2) When the batteries run low, there is no visible indicator - It just suddenly looses the signal. It then hisses like an FM radio set to a clear place on the dial. The power indicator still lights when you turn the headphones on, but they just won't receive a signal. The only hint as to the cause is that the auto-scan led doesn't flash when you turn the headphones on (normally it flashes once very briefly). 3) The headphones don't fit on the charger very well - You usually have to fiddle with them, because unless you get them in exactly the right position, the red "Charging" LED won't come on. There's also a plastic cap on the base's connector which you have to remove so it will make contact. All in all though, I'm satisfied. They sound good and they work, once you get past those three problems.
