Summary: I did a lot of research on wireless headsets. I needed something my wife could wear in the kitchen while she cooks and not have to turn the T.V. volume way up so she can hear it over the stove exhaust fan. Also she wanted to be able to hear the T.V. as she walks around the house and outside while doing household chores. I first looked at the digital wireless headsets and the ones with good reviews were way up there in price from $200 to $400.
Pros: Easy Controls, Great sound, Lightweight, Long Battery Life
Excerpt: I have some hearing loss, my wife doesn't. So these let me crank up the volume without bothering her. Until recently, SHE has been asking ME "What did they say?" Then she wanted her own pair, so now we have a set for each of us. The sound is much better than the TV AND the sound bar, together. The bass is great, too---especially since the sound bar that we added to the TV doesn't have a separate bass woofer.
Excerpt: I bought this headset to replace my broken HDR 130 headset (couldn't find a HDR 130 headset-only). Although the HDR 120 is perfectly capable, it is not nearly equal to the 130. The earpieces are smaller, flat (no soft cup surrounding the ear), and construction seems cheaper. The flat earpieces are not comfortable for long listening sessions as they press the ear against the side of your head.
Excerpt: I have been using wireless headphones for many years.<br />mainly to listen to the TV at night without bothering my wife.<br />My son uses it play video games without bothering anybody else<br />I own two units and I bought the expansion as one older set was not working anymore.<br />the sound quality is really good and even with the two systems working simultaneously, there is no interference between the two.
Excerpt: I bought these as an extra pair with the base we already own. With a new baby in the house who wakes up at the slightest sound, these have enabled my wife and I to actually watch action movies again - with loud, crystal-clear sound!<br /><br />Only downside, as others have noted, is that you should not order these if you plan on using them while doing any tasks that involve bending over, because they WILL slide off of your head.
