Comments about Sony Black Surround Sound Headphones:

Having used hearing aids while watching T.V., and having bought a new TV for my bedroom I decieded to buy another headset for replacement.

The set I replaced had multiple settings on the sides of the ear piece, easy to adjust while wearing. I challenge any one to adjust this Sony while on your head. So sitting watching a program and needing to adjust you have to remove and adjust, not knowing if your went to far or not enough. It's realy ridiculous, since once you remove the unit from your ears to view the adjustment it shuts off
