Excerpt: I have hearing loss in both ears and found it difficult to hear the TV without turning up the volume . These headphones solved that problem. They eliminate the need to strain to make out the dialogue and are comfortable and easy to operate. The sound quality is wonderful.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight
Excerpt: I bought the MDR-DS6500 and connected it to a flatpanel TV via the supplied (ultra thin) optical cable. With the base unit's special effects andcompression switches both set to off, the headphones, which I found to be lightweight and comfortable, consistently produced clear untroubled sound with no variations in volume, even when I walked from room to room throughout the house. My only complaint is the volume control, which I found to be hard to feel and adjust.
Excerpt: Great for TV viewing. Limited reverb from volume from TV or soundbar. A lot less expensive than top of the line and very comfortable to wear. Note: Power buttons on headset and transmitter. Would buy again.
Summary: We all know Sony knows their stuff when it comes to electronics and technology. With the Sony MDR-DS6500 wireless headphones they didn’t leave anything at the table. Once you try these headphones on you will feel like you have a 7.1 surround sound system. With most 3D movies having 7.1 the virtual 7.1 surround sound feature is awesome on these headphones. The Sony MDR-DS6500 wireless headphones will heighten your experience when watching movies and sporting events.
Excerpt: Worked the first time perfectly. Great for those that need high volume so the rest of the household can be at peace! The optical digital connection is perfect to interface with many devices. The sound quality is superb with my options to select such as movies, concerts, etc. The on/off switch on the headset is uncessary. The volume control could be designed for more easy adjustment; sliding it is not easy without a strong grip of the headset.
Pros: Easy to install, Easy to use controls, Great sound and options, Quality product
Excerpt: Elegant design, lightweight, comfortable headset, easy setup, intuitive controls, quick charging $ great battery life, digital surround and long range. What more could you want? HDMI? Sure, for several hundred dollars more...<br />Hooked up to a high-end tv, a/v receiver, dvr, blueray player and apple tv, these do well enough to make the speakers - though perhaps not the subwoofer - superfluous. Good job, Sony!
Pros: Comfortable, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
Had these a few weeks now and I do like them but they're not without their faults

Summary: Had these a few weeks now and I do like them but they're not without their faults. The sound is fantastic and the reason why I rated it 4. There are problems which you should be aware of before you spend this amount of money. First of all if you're hoping these will block out background noise then you'll be very disappointed. It doesn't block any in fact my £17 Sennheiser HD201 Closed Dynamic Stereo headphones blocked out more background noise than these.
... that spending all this money on headphones would guarantee superior quality. Not so

Summary: I thought that spending all this money on headphones would guarantee superior quality. Not so! There is an echo in the 'phones on every setting which is worst on the digital ones. I managed to reduce it to acceptable levels by using fixed level audio output sockets on the television and just using the 'phones on analogue. I seriously considered returning them, but I will persevere for a while.
