Summary: I've been using these wireless headphones on a TV and surround sound receiver for over three years, and decided to try them on my transceiver. I am very pleased with the results. Sound reproduction (to my ears) is excellent on SSB and CW. Not noise cancelling, but seal well over my ears, very lightweight and comfortable, with no cumbersome cord. They're infra-red transmitted with wide-angle range, so no RFI conflict problems.
Summary: The Sony MDR-IF240RK Wireless Headphones are decent value priced headphones that resolved the issue of the sound from my son's video games bothering us in the living room. In fact, they work substantially better than I expected after reading some of the recent negative reviews posted on Amazon.
Summary: My husband and I constantly fought about how loud the television was. He wanted it on about twice as loud as I do. I bought him a Sony wireless headphone system last Christmas and we both love them. He says he hears things he never heard before, background noise bothers him, and can adjust his volume the way he wants. The rechargable batteries last a long time before you even have to put them back on the charger. It is simple to plug into the back of your tv.
Ok if you want to just sit in front of the receiver.

Summary: The product is fine if you will just sit within the very short range directly in front of the charger due to it being infra red. If you turn your head to the sides you lose reception. You cannot turn your back to it or leave the room. It was not what I was looking for.
Summary: This is the forth one of these that I have purchased for my Mother. She has a severe hearing loss in both ears and can't hear the TV even if the volume is set to a level that no normal human can withstand. She won't wear hearing aids. I bought her first set six years ago and she took to them like a duck to water. I've tried other sets just to see if she would like them better but this is the only model that she will accept.
Summary: Hooked these up to my plasma TV and got nothing but white noise. After reading the troubleshooting directions I found out these do not work with a Plasma beacuse of interference. Return to Amazon went well-quick credit and no return shipping because product did not work.
Summary: For my wife to enjoy tv programs the volume had to be so high that I frequently left the room. These headphones solved the problem and I bought a second pair for the bedroom tv. With IR you have to be within sight of the tv, but the sound clarity is superior to radio frequency sets which seem to be affected by outside interference in our home.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Easy To Use, Versatile
