I have had my pair of these headphones for a good few years now and i use them on a frequent basis. They don't take that long to fully charge and they last a lot longer which is what i think is the best thing.
Apparently there is a 100m distance where you can be from the transmitter but i personally think that even when the headphones are brand new with a fully charged battery the 100m distance is a bit steep, but lets be honest, when are you ever going to be 100m from the device that is playing the music.
I used to use the headphones to walk around the house while 'jammin' away but i tend to now just sit near the transmitter and casually listen to music, i do have quite a few other types of headphones but i like to use these more often than not as they are more comfortable than other headphones. I have now started looking into DJ equipment, i recently invested in a few turntables and an amp, the headphones work quite well as i don't feel restriced by the wires. But personally for listening to msuci normally, even though i have used and loved the headphones, i don't think i would be having less fun with a normal pair of wired headphones.
The headphones are a good quality and are definately good to listen to music normally but when it comes to needing that little bit of extra volume and bass then i would suggest to look elsewhere.
I've used these for about 6 years now and my batteries are finally shot. However, thanks to you guys I now know how to replace them. Thanks guys. I love my headset and will more than likely only upgrade when these are completely shot, which, by the look of things will not be for a while. The sound quality could be better, but as far as wireless headsets of this age is concerned, I can honestly say: "not bad at all JVC, thanks for a great product" I've recently started doing the DJ thing and would have liked more volume, bass etc, but for a beginner I think it works great. I have found that 100m range is definitelly not attainable, even with the batteries fully charged, though I have never needed that kind of range. What I would like JVC to consider is reducing the link static you get, from time to time, when moving around.

Great headphones, had them for over two years now. The batteries in the headphones are removable, they are just 2x AA's all you need to do is get inside the ear piece with the power button on and remove a screw, the battery's then become accessible as they should be from the outside with a normal battery cover!! Why they dont come like this i dont know, either way you can then put in whatever batteries you want then. Only issue i now have is that the power adaptor has broken but after a few years i've had my use so i will probably be buying a new pair or find a similar adaptor.
I was pleasantly surprised by these headphones. They sound rather good despite the technical specification which states thier frequency response is 30 to 15,000 Hz. The clarity is good and they fit comfortably; although at 9.9 oz they are a little heavy. The ear pads form a tight seal around the ears, which is advantageous for better sound, but, as with all closed type headphones, means that nearly every external sound is inaudible. Whilst wearing them, my phone rang. Fortunately, it has a visual indicator. I heard nothing. The phones contain a rechargeable power source in the form of a NiCd battery. I would have liked it to be NiMh instead both for longer use and quicker charging. From flat, the battery takes around 24 hours to charge fully, and there's no quick charge option. Hiss was noticable at first. Then, by reducing the headphone volume and increasing the volume of the source, I found that I could virtually eliminate all perceptible hiss. Although my flat is fairly compact, I found that reception was unchanged from room to room with only a small dead spot in my kitchen. All in all, if, like me, you are not an audiophile, then these headphones are worth considering.
