Summary: My mom is 3/4 deaf and can finally hear TV voices again. She's very fragile, but the weight of the headphones is fine for her. For elderly people, I think this is better than earbuds, as don't have the "falling out of ear" issue, and this one surrounds the ear enough that the sound isn't escaping. The volume control on the cord, is perfect...lets her control something herself !!! The cord is really long, which is exactly what was needed. Very fair price.
Pros: Haven't had any issues with it. Trying to treat it with care, so it will last a long time, and mom can continue to watch TV. Everybody is happy !!!
Cons: People have a variety of tones that are missing from their hearing, and headphones won't fit every ear in the exact same way, so possibly won't be perfect for everyone, but is worth a try...worked in this case. After researching a lot of headsets, this one seems to be the best one I could find, in the "reasonable" price range.
Summary: I needed a very comfortable head phones to listen to digital transcripts. A top of the line recorder came with ear buds that actually hurt! The headset cable is extra long so that it is easy to move around. The volume control is high quality and it works.
Pros: Comfortable, great sound. Exceeded description.
Summary: Got these for my 90 yr old mother who's 80% deaf . These headphones have improved her quality of life greatly, now she can watch tv, & understand every word! She calls me every day & tells me how much she loves them!
Summary: These well-built headphones produce superb sound at a bargain price which includes a 17' cord (& individual volume control). The comfortable around the ears design greatly reduces surrounding noise, add the (always) great Crutchfield service and prompt shipment, you have a winner.
Pros: Great sound quality, comfortable design, included long cord
Summary: These headphones are perfect! I love the way you can leave them plugged into the tv and still be able to control the tv volume through the tv's speakers. Also, the supplied cord was perfectly long enough to reach from the tv to the bed. They are extremely comfortable on the head and very lightweight.
Pros: Supplied cord In-line volume control Comfort when wearing Sound quality
