    Whatever you do - just be careful with the battery. ;)

    Maybe I should call that 1-800 number and ask them what I should do if I can't find the battery???:laugh:

    Maybe the missing battery was the reason for the sale ... the paper said it had it, but BB couldn't find it either ...

    I hear it's a choking hazard.

    We carry 2 sets. We put each mic into the mixer separate and will at times stream a song from Apple music or Amazon music on another channel. I like being able to monitor the phone channel or pick up individual mix channels to ensure no issues.

    It's also a fire hazard. If put in the wrong place, could also be a tripping hazard. If you really put in the wrong place, could cause all sorts of problems.

    Yes, but would the venue also be part of the lawsuit? :)

    Depends if they have those batteries in their headphones. ;)

    OK... here's a difference I didn't notice right away...
    I'm plugging my headphones into my controller, and without touching the volume knob, and playing the exact same song at the exact same volume level, the Sennheiser headphones are not as loud as my Audio Technica's. It's not a big difference, but it's noticeable. I have plenty of headroom remaining, so I can turn the volume knob up higher, I just was surprised at the difference.

    Steve-O was kind enough to post the specs of the HD558's, but I can't compare them (the specs) to my AT's because I don't know the model number, nor do I have the original box or literature. However, next time we're debating about budget gear versus high-priced gear, this is a good example of how a lower priced item can compare to a much more expensive one. The Audio Technica's are pretty close to the Sennheiser's, but not quite as good. But the retail price difference was pretty significant.
