I am listening to music through these headphones as I write this review. And to be honest, I'm astounded with the quality of the wireless audio. I was hesitant, but in the end I leapt and went out and bought these. I was initially not going to, because of the price. But I think in the end it will be worth it as this product feels like it'll last a long time and just plain work.
The headsets will work plug-and-play, but the quality is not the greatest with the windows drivers. Installing the logitech ones were easy though and the software adds a lot more oomph to the bass.
The bass is great.
The mid-range is awesome.
The treble is clear.
Overall, I give it five stars for sound quality.
There is only two things keeping me from giving these a 5 / 5 review, and that is the fact that some PC's (such as my HP tablet) will not supply the transmitter with enough power through USB. So you might need a powered hub. No big deal really, but I bought a wireless to try and get rid of some of that cable mess.
If your computer supplies enough power, the wireless works perfect - no hissing, popping, glitching or anything. Sound comes through crystal clear, and people report that my mic sounds "really, really good" on their end through skype.
Once you get it working though, the battery life seems pretty good too. I'm not one to stay on my PC for 10 + hours. So I can't really say for those of you that do... it's good enough for me. But you can always plug it in.
Oddly, when it's plugged in via usb, it still receives audio through from the wireless transmitter. So don't count on having a cable headset if the wireless somehow fails.
They also are a bit heavy - but... it's not a huge issue. I don't notice it too much, and since they're really padded I don't find myself getting sore or needing a break after wearing them for two or three hours.
Overall, I'm very, very happy with this product even if it cost an arm, a leg, and a first born child (I'm usually the one spending ~$10 on headphones). I think it was worth the money, just for the sake of the wireless being so awesome. And the fact that they're the most ginormous, bad-ass headphones you can possibly get.
