Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"Yet another problem with the battery system is that, as mentioned, Advent uses 3 AAA batteries."
_
"It comes with 3 AAA rechargeable batteries or you can go to the local food store and buy some nice non-rechargeable batteries."
_
"The batteries leave a little to be desired, but I purchased a rapid recharger and 6 batteries and I am never dead."
_
"For the price, and for the built-in rechargable batteries, these are an excellent deal in my opinion, and I've enjoyed having them and using them, and have just ordered another pair so that my partner and I both can use them to watch movies with explosions and or loud orchestral soundtracks late at night."
_
"Also recommend investing in a second set of batteries, NiMH or NiCD that are recharged separately if you plan to listen for long periods of time between charges."

Price

Price:
"I would say if you're desperate for a pair of cordless phones these are probably good but you can easily buy a pair of good quality non-wireless phones for the same price or cheaper and save yourself a lot of hassle."
_
"I have heard clearer wired headphones for about the same price, but for me that is just way too uncomfortable."
_
"I recommend the RCA WHP160 phones in this price range."
_
")To sum it up, excellent sound, price and happy owner."

Quality

Quality:
"I am really cheesed off with buying these headphones, the sound quality is terrible and depending on which way you turn your head, the reception changes and it sounds like a radio which not tuned in properly."
_
"The audio quality was comparable on all 3...but the Advent phones each had drawbacks."
_
"The battery pack for the Sennheiser I looked at in the store is TINY, while the Advent takes 3 AAA batteries (so there's extra weight there).2) Advent sound quality is good, but as others have complained, the tuning of the transceiver and headset drifts often."
_
"The transmitter is very lightweight and its quality is not so good, moreover its not so powerful,but it works till the distance i have specified with very goodresults."
_
"The transmitter is very light weight and its quality is not so good, moreover its not so powerful, but it works till the distance i have specified with very good results."
_
"I still use the Advent wireless headphones for occasional TV viewing (where sound quality is not so important), but I wouldn't recommend them."
_
"Can anyone tell me what compares closest in sound quality and comfort to the Advent 770? "
_
"They are comfortable and the sound quality is perfect for my particular ears and hearing."
_
"I've learned that with wireless headphones it's best to spend a little extra for better quality."
_
"Sound quality is great."
_
"The sound quality is amazing - sports and action are great with all the background noise being intensified."

Range

Range:
"I bought these for myself about a year ago, and was kind of upset over the range I got (less than 100 feet)."
_
"Third, the range is not as great as they claim."
_
"I would recommend them to anyone who hates being tied to a chair or small range when wearing headphones."
_
"I have gone through two sets of Clearline Concepts, which had a range of about 15 feet and broke easily."
_
"Range is adequate for my modest tract home & yard (which never takes me more than 200 feet from the base.)"
_
"However when I used a set of RCA wireless headphones with this Advent transmitter I got a range of about 1000 feet (from in the house) and well over 1 4 mile Line-Of-Sight."
_
"Fine sound, good reception over a decent range (looks like I can get around the yard without them making any big complaints), comfortable."
_
"I recommend the RCA WHP160 phones in this price range."
_
"I use them in the kennel and in the yard and the range is as good as they advertise!"

_
"I replace them with a set by RCA model wph150 for $30 less and the sound was much better and no problem anywhere in the house."
_
"Simple to install, and sounds fairly good."

Wireless

Wireless:
"I can even visit my neighbours and look like a martian :-)The three things I don't like about the set are:1) proximity of the tune and volume dials on the headset.2) the fact that these dials are identical in size, making impossible a tactile distinction.3) no easy way to clean the pads (on the other pair of wireless headphones we own we have to just twist-unlock the pads and use a sponge or an old toothbrush to remove accumulated hairs and ear wax."
_
"I was moderately dissapointed with these but don't know how they compare with other wireless headphones on the market."
_
"I love my Advent Wireless stereo headphones."
_
"I've learned that with wireless headphones it's best to spend a little extra for better quality."
_
"(I have a great wireless phone headset by Vtech that charges by induction when on the stand, so this technology is available.)"
_
"Let me go over a quick Pros and Cons list:Pros:- Good wireless reception, works well all around the house and even near by outdoors."
_
"I bought theses wireless headphones because I wanted to be able to walk around my room without the constraint of a wire and still be able to hear my music."
