Sound quality was good, headphones themselves lasted one week. No refund or exchange offered. found a Sennheiser which was 30$ more, and after a year still work perfectly..Need to address the quality of the headphones durability. I mean i didn't try to go jogging or drop them, the design is flawed...Rating: [1 of 5 Stars!]

Although the sound experience with this headset is outstanding. The quality of the Headphones build is horrible, after one month both sides of my earphones cracked at the swivel point, used tape initially, but after doing some research i found that about 80% of the reviews had the same problem. Always read the fine print, when you open the case you own the product, there is no return policy for damages, even though there is supposed to be a year's warranty. I paid 185.00 for this product, and I will never make that mistake again.
By the way, the manufacturers customer service is non-existant, Open Tip should include a buyer beware on this product!

I didn't expect to get a good 5.1 surround effect from headphones, but these do sound pretty amazing.I see other reviewers have issues with the item breaking or pieces falling off. It must be rough handling on their part, because I don't have these issues at all.Great piece of sound equipment. Worth the money I spent.Rating: [5 of 5 Stars!]
I've owned Sony and Panasonic wireless headphones and have found them lacking in quality of sound, comfort and ease of use. The LTB Q-HOME-FX, however, have been excellent in sound quality, comfort and transmission distance. The large, soft ear cups block out background room noise and can be worn comfortably for hours. My set is now over two years old and still works well - and on the original batteries. My chief complaint is the cheap plastic construction. The earphone swivels on the headband break unexpectedly after a few months of use. I fixed that problem by simply gluing the swivels together with epoxy. Also, the plastic pieces over the metal headband extension won't stay snapped together. A little black electrical tape fixed that problem. So, if you want good sound and are handy with epoxy and tape, I give them a qualified recommendation. P.S. I am 72 years old and drive my wife nuts if I turn up the TV to where I can hear it. With these headphones, I can enjoy hours of very good quality sound.-------------------Since I wrote the review on the LTB headphones, I have purchased two sets of the Sennheiser RS 180 wireless headsets. They are excellent in all respects - comfort, sound quality, transmission distance and mechanical construction. They are, however, more expensive.Sennheiser RS 180 Digital Wireless Headphone SystemRating: [4 of 5 Stars!]

Use headphones while on treadmill and they're comfortable enough. Signal is great in the home theatre room but not so good from adjacent rooms or uptairs. Range is probably about 25-30 ft. The optical connection does not work but able to use the coaxial which is working fine. Would return it but I have an optical to coaxial adapter so I was able to get around this. I think the sound is very good. It looks sturdy enough and comfortable. So far I'm happy with the product.Rating: [4 of 5 Stars!]
I have LTB Q-HOME-FX for about a month now and I am happy so far with what I got. I use them mostly for listening music and they are good for both old CDs I have and 5.1 re-releases of the old albums that are becoming available now. I only use digital inputs and the sound quality is impressive. There is no noise except slight hissing when the signal gets lost. This hissing doesn't show when there is silence in the music. There is a lot of WI-FI in my area and I had to spend some time tweaking channels both on my WIFI router and on the headphones. If they happen to be on the same frequency, wireless just dies. After tweaking I can walk around most of my condo without signal loss. This is probably the best thing about this headset. The surround effect is good in both games and music. Sometimes it actually can become overwhelming and cause a panic attack as it happened to my wife once when listening to 5.1 music.The design seems to be solid enough, at least nothing fell off in the first month of use.When buying this headset I was also looking at Panasonic and Sony wifi surround versions and it seems that they all share the same design oversight. Namely, there is no automatic charging when you place the headset on the base. For LTB I have to plug in a cable for charging. I think for others it is even worse and you have to remove the battery to charge it. With LTB it is a minor annoyance. I never managed to fully discharge them so far and I think it can run for 8 hours as specification states.Also, while I saw some references that there is a optional microphone on this headset, I was not able to find a way to connect it. A microphone would be nice.Rating: [4 of 5 Stars!]
