      So far I have found nothing to complain about. Easy set up, great sound. I use them to watch tv in bed for a while without disturbing my wife. She's happy to not have to hear what I'm watching, and I'm happy to be able to actually hear everything on the program I'm watching. One less thing to argue about.

      I could only come up with 1 con for this product and that is if one isn't in line with the transmitter the signal disappears. Other than this , fortunately for me I could place the transmitter in a position that eliminates this for me. The sound is great and they work well.

          Comments about Sony MDR-IF245RK Infrared Cordless Stereo Headphone:

          My wife wanted these headphone so she could exercise and still listen to the TV. They work great, but you need to be in line of sight and not a great distance from the transmitter. I found them useful for when I stay up late to watch a program. I turn the tv volume way down and put the headphones on. Now I'm not disturbing those sleeping

            I use these headphones on the bike trainer during the winter. They are pretty bulky without the ability to adjust size that I can find. Range is pretty limited too, I can't walk around the entire room without losing reception. But it gets the job I need it for done.

              from florida

              Comments about Sony MDR-IF245RK Infrared Cordless Stereo Headphone:

              I got tired of my wife and kids constantly asking me why the TV was so loud so I bought myself these headphones. They work great. Connecting the base to the audio out ports on my TV allows me to wear the headphones and increase the volume as needed to comfortably hear what I am watching. The volume in the headphones is independently controlled and can be adjusted even if the TV is muted.

                Please be aware that these do NOT work if you have a Plasma TV. There is a terrible interference sound when you are in front of the TV. Therefore, this renders them useless for these types of TVs. The included manual actually mentions this, but it is not stated on the sales page.If you have a Plasma TV, save your money!

                    Compared to my other pair, Sennheiser TI410, the Sony unit has better reception, with a wider arc. The Sony is quite a bit heavier, which may be an issue for some. I am very happy with the Sony.

                      We have not been able to understand much of the voices on TV and find this headphone makes it much clearer. We are both classical musicians (Beethoven Bach Mozart etc) and are very discriminating in our listening. Classical music in the Sony is a joy to listen to. We had tried a different brand and found that they picked up other stations and interference. The Sony has a much narrow range for listening and does not pick up other signals then what you are listening to. Highly recommend them

THESE WORK VERY WELL AS LONG AS YOU STAY IN RANGE OF THE RECEIVER, WHICH IN MY CASE IS ABOUT 6-8 FT. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THESE HEADPHONES TO ANYONE WHO MAY SHARE MY PARTICULAR CONCERN OR JUST LOOKING FOR GOOD WIRELESS HEADPHONES.

                          Easy to use: charger works well, good reception and sound.
                          Only negative: non-adjustable primary head band is sized for big heads and although the secondary band adjusts to hold the phones on the head, the earphones themselves do not rotate. Result is they rest at a slight angle.

                              These are great for TV in the bedroom use. You have to maintain line of sight but since most of the time one is in bed, it's perfect for this situation. I find that there is hiss when the volume is turned up on the headphones so it is necessary to use a variable audio output so the volume can be controlled with the TV remote. But there is far less his than with my old RCA RF headphones and these are smaller and more comforable, too.
                              Beware: if your TV/Cable box doesn't have an analog output these will not work. And if you only have a headphone jack you will not be able to switch between the TV speakers and the headphones.

                                  It does not work properly. Useless beyond 6 feet.
                                  It doesn't deserve any star at all.

                                    I bought the Sony Infrared Cordless headphones for my wife. We already have an older Sony Infrared o another TV. Both have great clear reception and both used with Samsung LED TVs. Couldn't get the previous model new so the new one was chosen.

                                      The product worked great UNTIL the rechargeable battery died. I put regural AAAs in like other reviewers have mentioned. Now it only works within 1 foot of the transmitter... and tech support is basically non-exisitant. Unimpressed. It's more of a disposable product unfortunately.
