Summary: Sadly I broke my last pair of Philips headphones which had them for years but they were heavy to wear. These ones are much lighter to wear & great for using while watching the TV, extra volume control on the corded, don't work so well on the hi-fi. Long cable too.
Summary: I am hard of hearing and find these headphones allow me to watch TV in comfort. Do sometimes find I still have to have subtitles on when speech is muffled but most of the time it's a plensure to be able to watch a program without having it too loud for other people.
Summary: These headphones are adequate for use with a laptop for instance but I found the volume too low when connected to TV even with the sound adjusted to full volume using the in-line volume control on the cord. I would not recommend them for use with a TV.
