DIpak , Greenford watching TV others around

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Sound is good

Headset comfortable however after 30 minutes use the ears start getting hot and you have to remove it for a while.
Bad points:
I have to return the product as after initial charging of the battery for 24 hours, the headset will last onliy 5 to 10 minutes and getting cut off. After putting it for recharging again it will continue recharging for 24 hours and again work for 30 minutes or so.

I got a replacement after long delay. However, I am not sure the replacment is also working properly as after using it for an hour or so and palcing it on the recharging deck, it continues showing red recharging light fo rmore that 18 hours after just 1 hour use.

It seems that either the batch of recharging batteryies is faulty or the recharging deck is faulty.

Anton, Cambridge Movie lover

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I am no audiophile but the headphones sound amazing as long as you make sure the output source is set quite loud and the volume on the headphones is relatively quiet to make up for the loud source signal. Then the sound quality is amazing. Sounds a lot better than our (nice!) TV without the headphones on! The headphones stay on very well even when doing housework - they never fall off even when bending head down which is great. All in all a fantastic product! I never expected the headphones to sound nearly as well as they do so I am very pleased with them. The leatherette material of the ear cups is also very nice. Much nicer than cheaper models which just cause my ears to sweat.
Bad points:
When moving around (e.g. doing kitchen jobs) the headset makes a bit of noise from plastic on plastic movement. It is very slight and doesn't bother me at all but if you are listening out for it then you can notice it especially if the movie is in a very quiet patch. This doesn't affect me at all but I can imagine someone might be bothered by this.
