The range on this thing is brilliant. Until now, I have been using my HyperX Cloud II which are probably a little better/louder than these but they are tethered. The fact that I can wander around my house, go grab a drink out of the fridge and come back without losing a beat is great. Audio isn't as loud as I would have thought, but they make up for the need of high volume with crystal clear sound and noise cancellation. Because of the noise cancellation (I cant even hear my Echo when I am sitting next to it if I have these on with no sound playing) it doesn't NEED to be loud. The SteelSeries software package has a half decent customisation system so you can adjust the base/treble etc. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase. Only negative I can think of, I would have liked a longer cord for the wireless reader purely because I have an under-desk PC so for me to place the reader up high, I had to add a USB extension cable.
