Some reviewers on other sites have complained about hiss/lack of range/comfort etc with this model. No way! These things work better than I hoped for, can't fault them in fact. Excellent range, crystal clear, superb base, the sort of performance I thought I might just get from the 100 pounds+ models. Plug and play too. (Straight into my Sky plus box. Mute the TV sound and the Sky box powers the transmitter just fine). I can't think why Sony/Play don't tell you that they come with connection lead and power pack too; I had already bought a 3.5 lead not knowing it was already supplied. My only reason for not giving the 'phones a 5 star rating was to do with the instructions - a bit 'Eastern' if you know what I mean. Otherwise great. Have no doubts, go and buy!
