Summary: Quite enjoyable to use for watching TV, both for my spouse and myself. Jury still out on using them in Broadway and Off Broadway Threatres. First go around was a musical, so they were not effective. Need to try them out in a performance where there is extensive dialogue. Will report back on that feature.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Great Sound, Lightweight
Summary: I bought this item for my 93 year old mother who was having problems hearing the TV. She has been using the "Ears" product for awhile. Just did not have enough power for her continued hearing loss. This item did the trick. Very easy to use right out of the box. She says she can hear all her programs for the first time in years. It has been over 2 weeks and she has not had a single problem.
Summary: I have a hearing problem and wanted a set of earphones that you could adjust the treble on, so that the speaking parts of movies would be easier to understand, and this headset performed great, the best that I have ever heard. However the fit to the ears was not comfortable at all. They always felt like they were going to fall out.
Summary: The product appears to be well-made and of good quality materials, and it does amplify the sound so that with my hearing deficiency I can hear and understand dialogue on the TV without blasting others out of the room. However, the sound is tinny and you have to be sitting up fairly straight in order for the microphone on the earpiece to pcik up the sound. This devise doesn't work when you are stretched out and the microphone is not aimed at the sound source.
Summary: This is a very well engineered product. The sound from the TV is outstanding, plus its microphones can be turned on and off at the push of a button for assistance to hear people talking. One problem with the microphones is that they crackle when they move across clothing, so the listener needs to stay pretty still. I brought it to a church service, but it didn't pick up the sound system they were using there (maybe RF) so we used their receiver instead.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight
Summary: I achieved better word discrimination with the Sennheiser Set 900 than a pair of expensive (over $3500) hearing aids while watching TV and DVDs. However,the Sennheiser is much larger and not as comfortable as the hearing aids.
