Excerpt: This is for my husband who can't hear well. This is wonderful!! The TV can be low or even all the way down and he can still hear it and I, therefore, can read or relax in comfortable silence. (ha) I totally recommend this device. It's the best!!
Pros: Comfortable, Compact Design, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality
Summary: This works. My wife has no problem hearing. I do. This allows me to turn the volume as high as I need without deafening my wife. My hearing loss is asymmetrical. This unit has a balance control that allows me to vary the volume to each ear piece. I connect my Sennheiser unit to a home theater unit. The home theater unit does not have a "audio out" connection that allows me to receive full audio to the Sennheiser receiver.
Excerpt: Some hearing loss and poor room acoustics prompted my purchase. Very clear audio when used but notice some ear discomfort after using for an hour or so.Sennheiser has a well established name in the world of headphones.
Excerpt: This is my third listening device in the past 10 years or so and by far, the best. Compared to its predecessors, the 840 is more sturdily constructed, it has a convenient self activating on-off switch, the volume control covers a greater range than I need, the stereo feature is a very nice included feature, the ear pieces are well made, comfortable and should last a long time. I can hear clearly even when the volume on the TV is at a low setting.
Excerpt: Upgraded from TV Ears. 1,000 times better. The treble boost is perfect for my hearing loss. I hear sounds I have not heard from my TV before. A really fine product. Easy to set up and a pleasure to use.
Pros: Added features, Comfortable, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality

Pros: Comfortable, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality
Summary: Several years ago I bought tv ears to help me hear tv. Used them 2 or 3 times and never used again. Worthless. I got the Sennheiser 840 Dec. 2013.

We got a new Samsung Smart tv and I simply barely could hear the sound even at 61 or 62 sound level even though my husband and friends could hear it at 41 or 42. With the S.
