These are the wireless headphones you’ve been waiting for.

Good: Simple plug & play setup, Great sound, High quality build, Long range
Bad: Requires 4x AAA batteries, No battery life indicator
Price: AED 760
* The price is the Suggested Retail Price at the time of review. Please call a retailer to confirm the latest price for this product.

Going down the spec sheet of the WR700 headphones, the first and most promising thing that I see is its ability to playback uncompressed CD quality (16-bit 44KHz) audio. Next up is obviously the dynamic channel selection which uses a triple band wireless connection running on 2.4GHz from Kleer’s technology. The whole wireless tech used from Kleer essentially changes the audio frequency as soon as it senses a possible drop in wireless connection. What this means is that if you’re constantly moving around the wireless transmitter of the WR700 headphones, you may encounter 1 second drops as the frequency is being changed. So while this may seem annoying, it is still a better solution than listening to the audio feed all crackled up. Of course, you wouldn’t normally be moving so much around (and away) from the wireless transmitter which is rated at 10 meters, so this isn’t a big deal really.
