    Sennheiser Set 840-TV reviews

    Set 840-TV - Wireless TV Listening System with MKE 800-TV is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 29.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied with my purchase 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from CHRISTMAS CAME EARLY My sister bought the SET 840 TV for me for Christmas. The box came early and I couldn't wait. I opened them up and hurried with the set up. WHAT A WONDERFUL GIFT. Our home has an open floor plan. The programs my husband enjoys on TV are different from what I like to watch. The TV is great company in the kitchen and when I'm finished I like to sit out on the Lanai. I can use this headset and walk anywhere in our home or out on the lanai and I can still help Judge Judy with her judgements. I just love this headphone set and B&H has the best prices and services. All of their salespeople are very well-informed and helpful.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good device 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Quality 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.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for bedroom 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Real Deal This is my second purchase of the Sennheiser 840 TV. Great Units. I can walk around the house while preparing dinner. Sound goes right though walls. The purchase of the second unit was because the reviver head set became a a little finicky because of constant use over the last 5 years. Took the old unit down to our beach condo where I don't walk around and it works fine. For TV listening this unit is light years ahead of TV ears. Yes more money but no comparison when it comes to quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT PRODUCT--RECOMMEND 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I got new ears for Christmas 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.
