Ikasu Wireless Headphones
Advantages: Fairly well made, FM radio included
Disadvantages: Lack of dynamic range
Wireless headphones come in two sections - there's the receiver part which attaches into your audio device (TV, Stereo etc) and then there are the headphones themselves. These particular headphones have the added bonus of comprising a FM radio which can be used by elevating the built in telescopic aerial and subsequently pressing the 'SCAN' button on the left hand ear.
In terms of build quality, the headphones are generally quite sturdy, although the adjustable headband can tend to slip when worn for long periods. When it comes to comfort, the headphones are nicely cushioned, although they can make the ears feel quite hot after a short amount of time.
Using the headphones / sound quality
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
To operate, the headphones require two AAA batteries in the receiver, and another two in the ear section. If you tend to use the headphones at a fairly low volume then you'll find that the batteries will last for a decent amount of time (around three months with a four or five hours use per week). Connectivity is catered for via a standard 'Audio In' jack, and / or a red and white left and right stereo connection (both included).
So let's talk about the sound quality - and as you would expect for the price, Ikasu's cans are rather average in terms of their performance. Speech is clear, but there isn't an awful lot of bass, which makes them more suitable for spoken word use. I would class the output as 'acceptable', but they're good enough for my needs. What you will find is that you'll get a bit of hiss unless you turn the TV (or other audio source you have the headphones connected to) to a high volume and then set the volume on your headphones fairly low - this isn't a major issue, just a particular nuance of the device.

Overall Ikasu's Wireless Headphones represent a good budget option for those who only require this type of device for infrequent use. What I can say is that the headphones offer good value for money and have a reliability due to their decent build quality.
Summary: Low cost wireless headphones
