Rated 5 out of 5 by NAM20 Nice sound and good value for money
Good sound quality and range. The base unit and headphones are high quality and the phones are comfortable to wear if on the heavy side. This product is highly recommended you will not go wrong.

Rated 1 out of 5 by hdcrespi89 They simply do not work.
I had just recently purchase a Panasonc VIERA E60 Smart LED 42" TV. I thought these headphones would be great so I could play video games or watch movies without disturbing anyone in my house. It would not work at first with my consoles, so I tried plugging it into my TV. My TV doesn't have a headphone jack So I have to plug the RCA end to the TV and headphone end into the power hub. This did not work. So then I go on Amazon and bought 2 different cords; Fibre Optic Audio Out to 3.5mm AND Fibre Optic Audio Out to RCA. Neither of them work and I am thoroughly disappointed with my purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Fredericko916 MDRRF985RK successful; MDR-IF240R MDRIF245R static
1. Sony Headphone MDF-IF 240R purchased 10/30/2012 worked well for elderly impaired priest for two years; then became inoperative with static.
2. Sony Headphone MDR-IF245R purchased 3/1/2014 was inoperative with static. Numerous calls to Sony tech support yielded disappointing advice with no solutions.
3. Sony Headphone MDR-RF985RK purchased 7/21/2014 works successfully after choosing Channel 2 on transmitter.
Purchased as gift to elderly, hearing impaired priest now relating many thanks as he can hear his Sony TV without turning the volume full blast.
Purchasing three Sony headphones, two with static, did create stress and extra expenses.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DiscerningTV Quality Product
After over ten years of use with a prior model, I purchased these as a replacement since the ear cushions had deteriorated and the sound started to cut out. Having had these for only 6 months, I am very pleased with my purchase so far. The sound quality is great, as is the reception and fit. However they are huge and seem bigger than necessary, but I wanted over the ear and that is what you get. They are comfortable and are easy to set up and recharge. It took all of two minutes since I simply had to unplug my old ones and plug the new ones in. While its still early, my only complaint is the price on this site. I did not purchase mine from Sony directly, but off Amazon for less than half price. So while I might be more critical at twice the price, I would easily buy another set at the price I paid in a heartbeat. They simply do the job I purchased them for and they do it well!

Rated 3 out of 5 by BillVO Dropouts
The sound quality and comfort are great. I wear hearing aids, and they fit over my ears without my having to remove the aids. There's plenty of volume.
However, there is a problem with RF dropouts every so often. Might be several in 10 seconds time or it might be once in a minute or so. Tried changing the transmit frequency to no avail. Transmitter is within spitting distance of the phones.
I'm returning mine to try another unit (maybe it's just this one), and if that doesn't work, I'll look for another model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jjkj These work fine
These work as advertised. My previous set MDR -RF970R crackles and pops and cuts out when I am over 20' from the TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HuggybearsHoney Still the Best
We have had Sony cordless headset for well over 15 yrs. They no longer make the model to recharge But mine still works. I needed new muffs for my old set. They came and now my old set is on my new TV in the bedroom. The brand new headphone w/charger MDR-RF985RK are better. Their light weight, the sound is great, very clear and precise. The transmitter is definitely 150 with no problems and long as no metal beams or other metal structures in the way. My husband has that connect to our 53in. high def. T.V. and we both love it.
Hope these will last as long as our other Model MDR-IF3000. These have definitely taken a licken and their still ticking!!!.
That's why we came back to Sony, plus the price was great.
