Summary: These headphones were an excellent choice. Sometimes there is a little backgroundnoise, but nothing that really interferes with the total sound. My family loves it--no more loud TV for the rest of the family.
Summary: Very static if for any reason you touch around the ear you actually cover the signal if anything it sensitive, only works very well at close range around 3-4 feet max!! before you start hearing the static in the background as far as sound , its great! But the range sucks returning it.
Excerpt: Compared to my other pair, Sennheiser TI410, the Sony unit has better reception, with a wider arc. The Sony is quite a bit heavier, which may be an issue for some. I am very happy with the Sony.
Excerpt: We have not been able to understand much of the voices on TV and find this headphone makes it much clearer. We are both classical musicians (Beethoven Bach Mozart etc) and are very discriminating in our listening. Classical music in the Sony is a joy to listen to. We had tried a different brand and found that they picked up other stations and interference. The Sony has a much narrow range for listening and does not pick up other signals then what you are listening to.
Pros: Compact, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Stylish
Excerpt: So far I have found nothing to complain about. Easy set up, great sound. I use them to watch tv in bed for a while without disturbing my wife. She's happy to not have to hear what I'm watching, and I'm happy to be able to actually hear everything on the program I'm watching. One less thing to argue about.
Pros: Comfortable, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight
