      I bought this listening system for my father, who has moderate to severe hearing loss and has difficulty hearing the TV unless the volume is turned up extremely loud. He also has a tough time comprehending some words. He is very happy with this product! It's comfortable and easy to use. He only has one issue when the headset is being used to watch a DVD, or a downloaded movie from Netflix, in that the sound is only coming through the headset, and the TV speakers are silenced so no one else in the room can hear the sound, but he is buying a splitter that he was told will fix that set-up issue.

      Easy to set up.The instructions were pretty much useless.They fit loosely in the ear, therefore feel insecure and let in noise from other sources. I got two little foam caps, but do not seem to fit? More investigation needed. They also have a low hissing sound which is nearly audible but may discourage some. Therefore, the sound quality is fair.Otherwise they have good range and hold a nice long charge.Better than over the ear when you are in a reclining position. They do not get in the way.

          This head set is a great product. I am impressed with the quality of workmanship and function. Very simple to hook up to TV. The sound is incredible. I am hearing sounds and audio I haven't heard for years. I have used for only two weeks but would highly recommend.

            I purchased this for my mother who has difficulty hearing the TV. With the Sennheiser 840 she can now hear her favorite shows without having the TV on a high volume. Because this unit works on RF (radio signal) she can even use the device when sitting at the other end of the room near her favorite window. The best part is she never has to worry about forgetting to turn off the unit after use because it automatically turns off when removed from her ears (turns on when pulled apart inserting into ears). The large volume dial also is a big help.

                      My TV had to be on Blast for me to hear, so the whole neighborhood could hear too. I used CC, but most have typist who can't spell, or need to type faster. Now I can hear clear as a bell, no longer needing to have family translate what was said. My ears got a little sore even with the foam cushions, but now I am adjusting. Great product.

                                  Finally a product that lets me enjoy the full dialog on all TV programs
                                  As advertised it lets me roam around the house and not miss the sound of the programs I am viewing.
                                  I wish that the ear phones would have different inserts to facilitate different ear sizes. The receiver tends to drop from the ears and loose the reception.

                                      I use this as a simulated stethoscope for nursing students to learn about different lung sounds. We send the sounds from an iPad. It works great.This idea was shared from Ryan Eling at the University of New England.

                                          I use it to watch tv at night so that my spouse is not disturbed by the sound of the tv. It works perfectly and it is relatively simple to install and use. It works reliably and is worth the extra cost compared to less expensive models. I am hearing impaired, and this serves us extremely well.

                                              I bought this listening system for my father, who has moderate to severe hearing loss and has difficulty hearing the TV unless the volume is turned up extremely loud. He also has a tough time comprehending some words. He is very happy with this product! It's comfortable and easy to use. He only has one issue when the headset is being used to watch a DVD, or a downloaded movie from Netflix, in that the sound is only coming through the headset, and the TV speakers are silenced so no one else in the room can hear the sound, but he is buying a splitter that he was told will fix that set-up issue.

                                                  The 840TV system is an excellent product for both TV and HI-FI music.
                                                  Having hearing impairment and clarity problems for many years, I have found the system great in clarity and sound re-production.
                                                  So far have been exceedingly delighted with the system and thoroughly recommend.

                                                  Comments about Sennheiser Set 840-TV - Wireless TV Listening System with MKE 800-TV:

                                                  I use in my room to listen to the TV

                                                  It has good reception even if i go to another room

                                                  The wireless connection some times has interference & the sound turns off.
                                                  I have to wait for the sound to come back again.

                                                  I can not listen to "Stereo Sound"
                                                  It has two buttons ( Mono / Stereo) If I move it to "Stereo it becomes berry Noise
