Comments about Sennheiser Wireless TV Listening System:

I use for TV. I have tinitis and some hearing loss due to age, and these are incredibly more clear than either just turning the TV volume up really high, or using SONY over-the-ear or Insignia over-the-ear headphones. These make TV-listening enjoyable again. Good range, too. However, after about an hour, they are uncomfortable/painful.

      Comments about Sennheiser Wireless TV Listening System:

      Some hearing loss and poor room acoustics prompted my purchase. Very clear audio when used but notice some ear discomfort after using for an hour or so.
      Sennheiser has a well established name in the world of headphones.

      The best listening system I have used.

            Comments about Sennheiser Wireless TV Listening System:

            This is my third listening device in the past 10 years or so and by far, the best. Compared to its predecessors, the 840 is more sturdily constructed, it has a convenient self activating on-off switch, the volume control covers a greater range than I need, the stereo feature is a very nice included feature, the ear pieces are well made, comfortable and should last a long time. I can hear clearly even when the volume on the TV is at a low setting. I have yet to exhaust the battery charge, even after watching TV for several hours.

              The Sennheiser Wireless TV Listening System - SET840TV gives me the ability to hear all sounds including basses. A previous infra red device that I owned did not give me the sound quality that I get with this device.
