Yea nice ones. My Sonys had the loops too, which meant you could pull them out without having them fall. Or leave them just lightly in if you still want to hear the music but not be cut off.

It's a nice feature to have ... what I especially like is that the transducers are attached to the loops using two distinct swivel points, so there is a lot of adjustment that can be made for the perfect fit.

In the end, though, finding the right in-ear device is a personal thing.
A set that feels super comfortable for one person can be really irritating for another.

BTW...my pair of "the plug" buds...$15.

FD that's more in my price range ($10, actually) although Amazon has the SONYs for $33 with free super saver shipping or whatever ... maybe I can use a Borders gift certificate to get them?


Ah, vell...

The Plug is available at Best Buy, Walmart, Meijer, even Target.

Anyone have any recommendations, advice, or things to avoid about wireless
headphones?

I'm looking for something with decent to good audio quality and good insulation
from background noise. I don't need anything with noise cancellation as I'd
still like to hear what the baby's doing, phone ringing, etc. The headphones
will be in the same room as the transmitter pretty much all the time, so I don't
need a huge range. I've got an 802.11b/g wireless network in the house and a
5.8 GHz digital cordless phone system, so it would need to work with that. A
system that allowed multiple sets of headphones off the same transmitter would
be nice, but not necessary.

They'll mostly be used to TV viewing, but music is a possibility, too.

I can't recommend the radio ones, either, unfortunately.  Pure crap, the one I bought.

I'm guessing if you really feel moved to buy one, prepare to spend a lot of money, or don't bother.

Get a digital one.. this analog piece of crap is sheer garbage.

This pushes the edges of A/V a little:

Man! Thats a difference. the internal D/A Converter gotta be _real_ bad. Its sound was more like a telephone... 

Thank god its better now ;-)

I love the digital audio feed into my stereo/surround system.

It is nice to have an all-digital system. I've got the digital connections from my DVD player and my satellite receiver. I think I'm the only one in the house who can hear the difference

Surround sound is particularly better on a digital connection.

BTW, for those who were curious, I did end up finding a good pair of wireless headphones.

I got a pair of Bluetooth-enabled wireless headphones from Sharper Image.
They're closed-ear, but they don't completely block outside noise, so I can still hear the baby cry, phone ring, etc. I've been very happy with the audio quality, and the range allows me to wander around the house. I haven't noticed any interference with my wireless network or my cordless phones. Plus, they have a built-in mic for use as a headset with a cell-phone or computer--though I couldn't get them to work with my Sony-Ericsson T637.

On the downside, the base station only supports one pair of headphones, which my wife assures me is not a big deal. The other is that the base station, which doubles as the charging station, too, doesn't auto-charge the headphones.
I have to connect a small cable from the base station to the headphones to charge them. It's a mini-USB connector, though, so I'm curious if I could charge off of a powered USB port, or if they support audio over USB (the manual doesn't say).

I'd recommend these to anyone who's looking, and since Sharper Image is closing down a majority of their retail stores, you can get a good deal on them, too.
Though most of the stores won't do returns, even if the product is defective.

Want to know how much distortion you can hear? Take this test:
http://www.klippel-listeningtest.de/lt/default.html

I reached -24 dB.. I think maybe I could do better if I tried again. I ued my Sennheiser headphones plugged into the computer.. besides being good headphones, they shut out external noise so I could concentrate, which helps...

-18 w/ desktop speakers, nutral tone.  I had one right -21, but I think that was a lucky guess.

Sirius/XM is in sirius trouble ... er, make that *serious* trouble...

http://apnews.myway.com/article/20090213/D96AVBV00.html

They're about to go bankrupt.

One reason for declining subscriptions is the declining number of automobiles being sold right now, which was a big part of their listenership.

I think they should look to Novell (the old, nifty Novell ... not the current Ximian/Microsoft sleaze) for the right business model. Novell knew that they wouldn't sell a lot of network software as long as Ethernet cards were prohibitively expensive. That's how the blockbuster NE2000 card came into existence -- they took the simplest National Semiconductor reference design they could find, and spun off Eagle to flood the market with affordable Ethernet cards.
It was a strategy that worked really well.

And that's what Sirius/XM should do. They should be flooding the market with cheap receivers. It should be effortless to get your hands on one. Move the value elsewhere in the chain. If everyone's got the receivers, a lot of people are going to buy the service.

(Ok, not me, I'm notoriously cheap, but a lot of other people will.)
