Good price for AU stock I reckon. RRP $499 (JB hiFi still sells it at RRP, looked around prices are around $399)
Be careful when searching prices, some places showing good prices are only selling the headphone (with wrong product number), without the charger/signal stand.
These wireless RF Headphones for home listening receive glowing reviews, including audiophiles who are impressed by them.

They are a bit pricey, so will mostly appeal to those serious about audio.
Radio Frequency Headphones usually have poor audio quality, static & interference, but apparently these headphones have high end sound & great signal, no audio interference.
- High level sound quality
- No sound delay
- Great range performs surprisingly well through walls
- Ease of Use (Just put them back on the stand every time you turn stop using them & never worry about them running out of battery)
- Uses AAA rechargable batteries for easy replacements
- Batteries are located 1 in each earcup to balance the headphone's weight
- When using, you have to use switch it on. (Not the trigger in the headband like the sony version, which auto turns on by just putting it on your head)
- All buttons on right ear cup / difficult to distinguish (also tricky for left handers)
- Slightly tight headband tension (better for smaller heads)
- Button for switching inputs is on the base station. (Better design would have it on the headphones)
