This product has been a lifesaver.
I bought this for my daughter so she can watch tv in the same room as me while I am studying and it has been great. The only problem is that I can still hear some of the noise coming out of her headphones if the volume is dialed up too high. Other than that, they work great and setting up was easy. Also, they are always on the charger so battery life is not a problem.
Sony Wireless TV Headphones
Setup instructions seemed easy to follow, the product works wonderfully! The only draw back I see is that you really cant lay down with them on, otherwise a great buy!
Great cordless headphones
Headphones work great. You can hear so much detail in movies and shows. I can wear them and the rest of the house can stay quiet, it is great for peace in our home.
I love this product
I bought these for my 18 year old son he loves them and also the stand is very nice to help protect them from breakage.
You and your spouse will love it!!
I bought these after I read the reviews and it did not disappoint.
I bought these for my wife since she likes to watch TV b4 she goes to sleep. She likes them, and says they are comfortable. So its a WIN-WIN for both. She gets to watch TV at normal volume setting and I get some sleep = happy marrige
Just what I needed!!
These Headphones are very comfortable and easy to use. I dont bother my wife with the TV turned up too high anymore. She is happy too!!!! They fit great and have a great sound, and the Ni-Cad battery last a long time.
They work great in small area
the power switch is hard to get at - large fingers you would have a difficult time.
Cant go very far but for me its plenty far
I use these to either play my Xbox360 or to watch TV at night while my wife goes to sleep. They work very well and the sound quality is amazingly clear. You have to turn the TV volume up a little bit for the headphones to work; otherwise, you will only hear static, but the lower the TV volume, the more static you hear. I turn the TV volume to just above a whisper and the headphones work perfectly.
Bought these as a gift for my father because he has a hard time hearing to television when they have company over. I set them up for him and it was super easy. The sound that was produced by the headphones was great! He really liked the design. He said they were pretty comfortable and light weight. Have not tested out the battery life or range on them yet being he just received them. Overall a great buy!
Very uncomfortable headphones
There is no padding on the top of the headphone and poor padding over the ear pieces. Very uncomfortable to wear for more than a short period of time.
a lot of static
not a clear sound
My husband no longer has to hear my upstairs television blaring when he is downstairs.
"Best gift I ever bought!"
I bought two sets of these headphones. One for my father, who is deaf in one ear and hard of hearing in the other. It was so nice to sit and watch tv with him without feeling like I was being blasted out of the room by the volume of the tv! He had been given another brand and he said that these were MUCH better quality and the sound was perfect.
The other set was for my husband. He likes to watch tv at night after I go to bed. He is able to do so without disturbing me with the noise. He also commented on how clear the sound was.
I like em ...
I use them when on a treadmill. Much easier without having to raise volume and disturb others.
Do Your Research FIRST
Will not work with my brand new 65 inch tv without buying a receiver. Moved it to computer and has a huge buzz. Will not use.
I use it late at night watching T.V so i do not wake up my wife. The Headphones are very confitable,They do not hurt my ears
I love this. It is the best gift.
I gave this gift to my husband. To be honest it was really a gift for me. I can only listen to so much football. This way we can be in the same room and he can be watching his football and I can be reading. Its wonderful.
I bought these for my father in law to use in the bedroom while my mother in law is trying to sleep and they work perfectly! Everyone is happy. Easy to set up and use. Perfect Solution.
I bought these headphones for my husband so that he can watch TV late at night without disturbing me. This was the best gift I could have given my husband. He advise the quality of the sound is great.
so easy to set up and easy to use
Ibought this headset for my 94 year old father who lives in a nursing home and likes to watch tv at night.complaints were coming about the volume so this headset was the perfect solution.It was an easy set up and just as easy to use.BUY THEM
Listen to TV without bothering others
Easy to set up. The best use is to sit still and listen to TV (which it was designed for), as it has a limited range as far as moving around while listening. That means if you are in the kitchen cooking, you may move out of range to the side if you walk over to the fridge. That can be used to advantage if you get up during the commercials: it will lose the sound if you step to the side to do something. Also, you cant move too far away from the sending device. At 35 feet, the sound can get crackly. For most people that would not be problem.
It has very good volume control, which is why I bought them. The volume control on the headphone are very easy to operate, but may irritate some left-handed people, as they are on the right. It is just a small dial, so easy to manage for most people.
The headphones are fairly comfortable (not as good as Bose, but then they are much cheaper than Bose), but they feel like they could easily fall off or slip. They havent fallen off, but just feel a little insecure
works very well, good buy!!!!!!!!!!!
Very dissapointed in the sound quality.
It works if you are if your 2 foot in front of it
I like this
I really like this product. It works well, sound is clear and it doesnt pinch the hell out of my ears like my head phones at work. Its a good looking product and looks great in our media center. You cant walk to the kitchen, but if youre watching TV, why would you during anything other than a commercial break. Thumbs up from me.
Love it, some interference though!
These are great, but there is some interference!
Easy to install! Sound quality is good!
too early to tell if they will hold up under daily use.....
Good sound - needs to fit snugger
The band between ear pieces has stretched (relaxed) so does not effectively hold the headset snuggly on my head. I like to be up and about doing miscellaneous projects laundry, cleaning, etc. but they readily fall off when I bend over, or tip my head down.
Easy set up
Make sure you have a clear unblocked line of sight or signal may fade.
Product is worth its price
I really enjoy my headphones at night. My mate is a early to bed person and I am not. This way I can watch a late night movie and not bother anyone. I only wish I could adjust the fit a little better. Or if I could attach ear buds to the headphones would be great.
Have had similar products before...thirds are the best! Not only is the sound superb (clear, loud enough but evenly), but when I fall asleep with them on, they are so
comfortable that they are on all night without causing sore areas from some hard plastic, like other brands!
Just what I wanted!!
My hearing isnt perfect... and my bedroom has windows that face a busy street. As a result, television viewing in the evening/in bed was a challenge. I didnt want to turn up the TV too loudly, and I was tired of rewinding my shows because I missed a line when a truck drove by. These headphones were a perfect solution! I now happily hear my programs, and I can watch TV in bed at any hour without disturbing my sweetheart. I looked for headphones and found this set through Sharper Image. I LOVE THEM, and highly recommend them to anyone seeking a sound solution like I had. The headphones are light and comfortable. The sound quality is great. The range from the base is just fine. The battery length has been plenty for me. This product is simply a winner!
Great high quality infra red technology
After seeing the positive responses relative to Sony Wireless Headphones, while morning the death of my Songbird hearing aid, I decided to give the Sony system a try and see if I am able to enjoy TV without hurting "Bat Girls" ears (my wife - with her super human hearing!).
I happen to be an engineer well versed in IR applications, so was a bit curious about the system that Sony selected.
Surprise! Signal to noise ratio is in league with the 80db ratio mixers I designed for Shure Microphones. Frequency response is such that clarity is equal to my Songbird [Actually better, because of stereo programming into both my ears]. Radiation propagation at 15 feet is equal to 90 degrees plus and minus of head rotation, meaning if mirrors and bright colored reflections of transmitter would extend this directionality. System is not analog, so reception coupling is very solid as if by wire.
Obviously I make the wireless phones a 5 star system - with the only very minor drawback being, I have to be careful in p
my wife can sleep now.
Tranquility in our new home...
We recently moved to an apartment and each need our space. This headset has simplified our lives by allowing one of us to listen to music or tv without disturbing the others sleep or peace to relax and read. Its easy to wear and such a great option for us to respect each others space. Thanks Sony and thanks Sharper Image for keeping the peace!
A gift for my Dad. He loves them.
This was a gift. He is hard of hearing and turns the TV up real loud and everyone else cant hear their own tvs. This allows him just to hear his own. My son hook them up for him thru a vcr because his tv was too old. He loves them. My sister wants to get a pair for herself. Thanks again for being there.
Clarity of words great
Purchased for 90-year old Mother who is very hard of hearing. Works great for her - better under-standing of words. She wanted another set for a different tv. Before headphones, TV volume so loud you could not stay in room. Well worth the money.
I DO NOT LIKE THEM. TOO MUSH STATIC IN
AGAIN.... TOO MUCH STATIC. GETS LOADER AS YOU INCREASE THE VOLUME.
I got these for my husband who tends to listen to sports with the sound UP and we weere both astonnished at how well these headphones work. Were going to order a pair for my dad -- my mom willl be SO happy. Hes hard of hearing and the volume is hard on her ears!
We charged the batteries and plugged the base in and they didnt work. We called tech services and they didnt have any idea why. Was very disappointed.
Headphones are super.
I bought these headphones for my husband who is hard of hearing. He loves them.
i would buy this again
Terrific sound system!
I have to hand it to Sharper Imagine, it works wonderfully as described! I did shop around to look for something a bit more inexpensive, but after reading reviews I went with this item and TA-DA, Boyfriend LOVED it and I loved the fact that I could still hear the TV on my end and he could wear the earphone and crank up the volume. Perfect gift.
Not what I expected
I guess I was expecting a true wireless headphone. The headphones require you to use the earphones jack. This cuts audio to the external speakers. Most current HD TVs are mounted on walls. Sooo, you have this extra SHORT cable trying to power and supply audio to the headphones. I was looking for true wireless headphones that do not require you to plu the earphone jack up, in the back of the TV. I plan on returning this product to the retailer.
Needs More Info in the Description
I bought this for my husband for Christmas, and was hoping that it would let me get some sleep! Well, it was a great idea, but they are not compatible with my bedroom tv (which we bought last year!) Theyll work with the older living room tv (?!) but I wanted them for the bedroom. These are being returned, needless to say.
I use to watch TV and not interfere with my spouses music or football games on his TV in the next room.
It is much more comfortable to wear than the last product I used. Controls are a little tricky to adjust. The sound quality is fine, no static.
I love this item and have puchased two of them. I use one late night after my husband has gone to sleep in order to watch TV quitely.
We put the other in our RV to use in close quarters when others do not want to hear it. They work simply wonderful.
My partner of 20 years has a severe hearing loss and when he watched tv it was so loud it was impossible for me to be in the same room. This product has solved the problem and saved my hearing. Worth the money and would recommend this product to anyone.
Works as advertised.
There were no unpleasent surprises when I started using this product. It works as it should.
I have had to listen to the TV on loud volume for years and it becomes distorted and irritating. Now my husband can listen to the shows with his headset allowing him to set the volume where he needs it and I can stay in the room again! I can now listen to shows without distortion or high decibels.
These headphones are fantastic. They allow one person to watch TV while the other person can sleep. The sound is very clear. I would reccommend them to everyone.
Saved my sanity
I purchased the Sony TV Headphones for my husband. These has saved my sanity! On weekends my husband "relaxes" in front of the TV with the volume up very high. I work out of our loft just above the living room and could not think with the action packed noise. Now that he has these wonderful headphones, our living area and office/loft is a peaceful place to work!
I plan buy this product again and again
Great for late night TV viewing
Worked as advertised. Wish the controls a little easyer to use.
ok, I guess
I use them to listen to TV. I have a hard tine understanding dialog. They are not as comfortable as I would like
Husband loves it would buy again
My husband loved the ear phones, smaller on the ear and comfortable.
Overall a pretty good buy
These headphones were purchased as a Fathers Day gift for my husband who enjoys falling asleep with the tv on, while I prefer to fall asleep in quiet. They have been a nice compromise. The range said 150 feet, however, if he goes into our adjoining bathroom wearing them they cut out (less than 150 feet). He also notices some static while wearing them too.
Not what I thought
I thought that I would be able to hear TV when my husband wore the headset. It doesnt work that way. The sound is totally shut off for me. Sorry I had to return them. Otherwise they were good.
dont judge a book by its cover
I use it mostly when i am in bed. I find the bulky ear pads and antenna on top make it hard to get comfortable. I also find that the right ear phone is not as loud as the left,and has a lot of static which i find annoying. On the TV that is in the living room i do not have to turn the TV volume input off to hear the head phone. I have a new TV in the bedroom (not the same model} and the head phones only work if I turn the input volume Off,this is not a good feature unless my husband has an earphone or doesnt mind lip reading. I would recommend them to a friend depending on how they are going to use them.
Hearing conversations on Movies
I am now re-seeing movies Ive seen before and able to follow them better. I take it with me when I see movies at a neighbors. I have Macular and It helps to hear t he dialogue because I am not seeing the movie real clearly.
Only proble I had with it early on was the person who was helping me plugged it in so nobody else could hear. We solved that problem and my wife who doesnt watch TV appreciates the fact that she cant even hear it.
Thank you Sharper image
Awesome gift from my husband!
While my husband is asleep before his head hits the pillow, I have always had to watch TV or listen to the radio to get my brain to relax so sleep will come to me. The headphones are the perfect solution as I can watch TV without worrying about the volume spikes waking my husband. I often turn the TV screen off and listen to a movie through the satellite box while falling asleep. I have nothing but good things to say about these headphones!
MOVIE WATCHERS, REJOICE!
I bought the headphones because when I watch a movie on Netflix, I like to have the volume turned up. It doesnt do any good to have a home theatre system if you cant hear it properly. Using the headphones allows me to have the sound where I want it, yet not disturb my wife in the family room. The headphones work great, with only two issues: sometimes, you can hear a wind-like sound in your ears; if the cradle is accidently jostled or even slighty moved, the charging light goes out, and you have to readjust the headphones on the cradle.
Sony wireless head phones are excellent!
Very pleased with this product.
I gave these to my husband for Christmas and purchased a pair for myself so we could watch TV while our daughter studied. We were setting them up to use but we could never get the static sound to leave. We have returned both sets but have not received a refund yet.
I would buy this product again!
I use the headphones to listen to my flat screen tv in my bedroom. Works great with crystal clear sound! I would purchase again! I would highly recommend this product to my friends!
Treadmill and TV perfect together
I purchased this for my son who was always complaining that he couldnt hear the TV when he was running on his treadmill. I told him about these wireless headphones and bought it for him for Christmas. He said the installation was easy and that they work beautifully. He can now watch his favorite shows without the neighbors complaining of the loud TV.
These are great when my husband wants to watch a talk show but the rest of us want peace and quiet!
The Headphones to save my sleep
I gave these to my husband for Christmas gift. Cant wait for him to use them and for me to get some sleep while he plays and watches tv while I am sleeping. This way he can still have fun and watch his shows, and I should be able to sleep better :)
I bought this for my husband for Christmas and we are all very happy to be able to finally listen to TV in the same room, at our desired volume. My husband says they are comfortable and the quality of the sound is very good. All in all, a wonderful gift for us all!
Great deal for great headphones
Not a bad appliance
Product did what it was supposed to do. Problem is that there is a good amount of static or noise (and Im only 8 ft away). It is kind of distracting. If it were not for the static or hiss this product would definitely get 4 or maybe 5 stars from me. I would recommend if you definitely need the privacy. I know of no other product to try at this time.
It suits its purpose.
The headphones have accomplished what I wanted them to: allow me to watch TV in bed while my husband sleeps. I hear perfectly and he cannot hear a thing. The directions were hard to follow for both of us. The signal seems to cut off easily - for instance, if I lift my hand to scratch my head. But, as I simply sit up in bed they are fine.
works great, hard to get in cradle
Works great for my elderly parent, shes able to hear the TV, and I cant, which is what we want. Battery lasts a long time. However, they are difficult to seat in the charger base correctly, especially for the elderly. Must be fiddled with to get the red light to come on for charging. I put a piece of colored tape on the headphones and the charger base to help to line up to charge.
purchased 1 for my husband...I liked it so much bought 1 for myself can be used on my tv in other room or I can wear them while watching the tv with my hubby where he watches in his tv room
I can finally get some sleep!!
This has been a such a wonderful thing for my husband and myself. He can continue watching TV in bed and I can get to sleep without hearing a thing!
It is lightweight and durable, but we dont have small children in the house on a daily basis. I dont know if it would stand up to more rigorus use.
The person receiving the item is most satisfied as is everyone around them!! Thank you
excellent product as all Sony products a
great value-great sound!!!!
Your husband will love you
I purchased the wireless headphones for my husband for Christmas, my husbands loves to listen to music on the tv at night or watch tv til the wee hours this was the perfect gift for us both. He is really hard to please and when told me how much he liked them it really made me happy because he works hard to make his family happy he should have things he enjoys also. Thanks for this great product, and I am not one to write product reviews.
Sony Wireless TV Headphones
A christmas gift to my husband
NICE SONY WIRELESS HEADPHONES
THEY SEEM TO BE REALLY NICE. SOUND IS GOD, BUT THE RANGE ISNT VERY GOOD. YOU HAVE TO BE WITHIN RANGE OF THE INFRARED LIGHTS. IF THEY WERE SMALLER AND WENT INSIDE THE EAR, I WOULD LIKE THEM A LOT MORE.
Great product for night shift workers
Great product for opposite schedules. My spouse works a night shift and I work a day shift. With this product I can easily watch TV or movies and not disturb her in the next room, or even if she decides to nap on the couch with me.
