    I live in a condo and there have been noise issues with neighbors in the past. With these headphones I can now watch a movie at night and actually hear the dialog. Not only can I hear every word, I'm hearing sound effects that I didn't know were there! The range is very good, I can walk around the house and not lose the signal, I can even step outside. Setup was very easy, just be aware that the battery needs a 16 hour charge before first use.The only downside I've found is that the headphones do become a little heavy and are a bit awkward if one wishes to recline. The base set has turned itself off a few times and the power cord needed to be unplugged/replugged to restart but it has been infrequent. Overall I'm very pleased and would certainly purchase again. The price was fair [...]-thank you!

    1. The battery cover keeps falling off, and often will not set correctly when putting it on no matter what I do. And that's following the directions. Oh, and the battery that comes with the product doesn't work. A friend of mine who has the same product said the same thing.

    2. I've used the MDR-RF925RK for two weeks now, and it has stopped receiving 6 times so far. Sometimes it starts without any reason, other times I have to unplug and plug in everything, and sometimes it takes so long to start working that I think it's broken....and suddenly it works.

    3. On the other hand, if these problems could be definitively corrected, it has excellent sound quality, although the synchronization of the 1,2,3 on the headphones and the transmitter are not really explained. Does it change the tone quality, i.e., treble freq. versus bass freq. Highs to lows?

            Bought these for a hearing impaired member of our household. We installed them on the TV so that he can listed as loud as he likes while everyone else can listed through the TV speakers at a much lower level. Highly recommend these for situations such as ours. Salesman on phone was most helpful. As usual with B & H the shipping was fast.

                  I have struggled with the road noise rising from one of Portland's most traveled city streets, especially in the summer when my windows are open. Before I bought these headphones, I would have to turn up the TV's volume to the point I worried about disturbing my neighbors. Now, I simply put on the headphones and clear stero sound makes watching a program a pleasure. Simple and effective.

                            I use this for bedtime TV viewing only. The best feature is the auto on/off. Just pull em' off your head and set em' aside and don't worry about turning em' off and deal with putting em' on the charger in the morning. Living in Texas, we use a window unit A?C to keep the bedroom ultra cool 6 mo. of the year and the phones help me hear nuances that used to be slightly buried under background noise. The only negative is an occassional random "pop" sound. There is no static. Sound is clear except for that "pop" It is not bad or often enough for me to be overly concerned. I can live with it.

                                I had the TV ears before this sony headphone and they didn't work as good as these. You could't move very far away from the TV with the TV ears. With the sony, you walk anywhere and not lose the signal. A nice thing about the sony is it shuts off itself when you take them off.

                                So far so good. I like them

                                The headphones work OK. Not the greatest sound quality and I often hear clipping noises with them, but they're certainly functional.

                                  I have a moderate hearing loss and use use this product on my T.V. It works great and improves the sound when watching a music video.
                                  I'd buy these again and would certainly do so from B&H.
                                  B&H gives great service as well as prices.

                                    These Sony wireless headphones are the best product out. I already own 2 pairs (living room and bedroom) and when I saw them at this price I picked up another 2 pairs for "JUST IN CASE". At night I mute the tv and pop on the headphones and i'm in another world WITHOUT bothereing the wife while she sleeps. B&H was GREAT to deal with and both pairs got here "SUPER FAST"!! Soooo, Pros: EVERYTHING, Cons: NONE!

                                    I've had 3 sets of Sennheiser Wireless headphones and 1 Logitech over the years. They were all pretty good. When they discontinued the units, and I couldn't find a replacement battery for them ...(If that was what was wrong), these headphones all ended up in the trash heap. I decided to try another company and not drop 1-200 bucks on a headphone. I went with Sony. For [$]. at BHPHOTO, the Sony blows away the Sennheiser on both Soundquality and COMFORT (the Sennheisers would give me a headache after wearing them an hour). This Sony Headphone is Big and Bulky (biggest I've ever owned). You look like an alien escapee from an alternative universe wearing them ... But the cushions are extremely soft and comfortable. I can walk around my NYC office and not disturb people in the other companies on my floor. I'm thinking of buying a second set for home. BTW: IF you have a hearing difficulty like I do, these are great. You can turn up the tv at home, and not desturb the neighbors.
