Sennheiser RS 130
Disadvantages: Sound quality
I had a pair of Beyerdynamic DT550's for about 20 years until they started playing up. This was a disaster as I had grown to love everything about them.
I searched about and found these - good reviews, wireless, my friend had a set of Senhheisers -= decided to buy them. They are good but not a patch on the Beyers. I find them pretty comfortable to wear, I love the way they charge simply by placing the headphones on the stand but sound quality is only just acceptable. As stated in previous reviews it is too easy to hit the tune button when looking for volume button. When you listen to anything that has a quiet insert then I'm afraid you can hear a background hiss. In my opinion this is not acceptable but I accept it is probably part and parcel of going wireless. I have subsequently replaced the RS 130's with a pair of Grado's - what a difference!
I still have the RS 130's but they are used when someone listens to the PC. I have to admit I bought 2 additional sets for my parents [both in late 70's] - they love them and I'm glad to say they annoy the upstairs neighbours a lot less since I bought them!
Summary: Good but don't expect miracles!
