    I have a Samsung 55" LED TV in which I've simply needed to enable headset usage so as to not disturb others if watching during late night. After buying applicable cables with proper plug ends, a new set of quality brand wired Headsets, much to mydisappointment Samsung does not provide an Audio Output on a $2,400 TV, with a signal sufficient to drive a simple set of headphones to enable even a low listening volume level. Swell! After much reading about amplified wireless Headsets for TV usage - pros and cons - there is much hype about the Sennheiser #tm# brand of Headphones. After reading more about this Model of Sony Wireless Headsets, I took the chance and purchased these. Wow... Very satisfied. The volume is fully adjustable to please the individual using them, they have a #25hr.# of usage with rechargeable LI-Ion battery that recharges in 2.5hrs. from an exhausted charge, they are comfortable to wear, the sound is in-depth, they are audibly "clear", you have three #3# channels to chose reception on, the transmitter/charging station is light weight, can be set at various locations nearby the TV itself, they do not cost a fortune, there is NO time delay #sync# between when you visually see a persons lip movement, vs. when you hear it in the headsets #an issue with some even more expensive brands#, they have a Red Charging On LED, a Green Audio On LED showing activity, they do not incur static into the Headsets when a program, movie, or video being watched has audio silence, and they have solved my problem nicely. There may be better Models, Brands, Types out there, but you will not be disappointed with these. The only two small recommendations: 1. Design with separate Volume controls for each ear piece. 2. The audio Cable included is very short, only about 3' #1m# long. Change this to at least a 6' Cable to enable more flexible Transmitter positioning,

    In almost every song I play there is this extremely harsh ticking. As the tempo increases, the ticking also becomes more frequent. I'm 100% this is not part of the audio file. It sounds almost like the speakers are shorting, its that harsh and much loader than the rest of the audio. I can physically feel a tremble when the tick happens. And every once in awhile, though no often, there is a harsh spam of static that last for about half a second. The ticks and spams of static happen at precise moments in the songs, they happen every time without fail. This is by far the worst audio experience I had with headphones. Btw, this headphones don't block out any outside noise. I can hear myself typing and clicking the mouse.

      I bought these for my Grandma for Christmas. She uses them when watching TV, so the volume isn't turned so incredibly loud in the room for the rest of us.

      Comments about Sony Black Analog RF Wireless Headphones:

      This works great for my mother (hearly 90) listening to her TV at home. It's easy to use, just set it on the pedistal to charge and it turns itself off. It sounds really good and with poor hearing is plently loud even without my mother wearing her hearing aides. The range is great reaching nearly throughout her entire home and even the basement! The only problem she has is if she bends over quickly the headset has a tendancy to slip off, but she's careful and it's not an issue. But otherwise it's perfect.

                Comments about Sony Black Analog RF Wireless Headphones:

                I use an earlier model to watch TV. When my grandson visited for Thanksgiving, he used my "ears" when I wasn't using them. He thought they were great. I decided it would be his Xmas present. They were ordered and sent to my daughter's address. I was surprised to learn they arrived so quickly (makes me wonder why I joined Prime). I've purchased goods from Abt before and always got great service, but I believe its service is getting even better.

                            I love the headphones - first ones I've owned, had a problem finding where to plug them in. It took a call to Sony customer service to find out which red & white "output" jacks to plug the headphones into. That was my mind-set. Sony directed me to use the 'phone jack', which was located on the outer edge of the TV with all the other "game input jacks". The enclosed headphone instructions didn't mention anyting about phone jacks. Once the input-output issue was settled, the headphones work and sound like a dream. I woud recommend them to anyone.
