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 5 out of 5 by PereraJAL Right Pick
I got these headphones from USA after considering among several other brands. My primary objective was to use it for TV when watching movies at night. Also, English is not my mother tongue, I had always relied on headphones to get the exact pronunciation for my easy understanding. Thanks to the right pick, I have fulfilled both of my requirements completely.
It gives crisp clarity over Stereo / Mono even it decodes 5.1 output in my digital set top box. Working range is more than adequate for a 2-3 story household like mine.
In some occasions it gives some distortion and a hiss but after reading a Sony instruction I got it worked out either changing the channel or connect/reconnect the power or the audio cables few times. It sure addresses the issue 100%.
Wearing the headphones is as comfortable as it fits to my ears. Also the battery life is amazing that I charge it very rarely.
Suffice to say the best choice and great value for money.

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 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 5 out of 5 by RockinRoc Better than Before!
I bought a pair of these head phones about 5-6 years ago. I accidently broke the one ear piece from the top part of the head set. Before I did that they worked perfect.
I was mad at myself for ruining a good head set. I went back online to SONY and couldn't find the same headset. I phoned SONY with my old headset's model number and the lady was VERY helpful and said this set was a better set and compatible to the one I had broken.
Upon receiving the new headset, I found out this one had an ON-OFF switch on the headset itself! NICE!!
It works perfect and I can now watch TV without interferring with my husband's sleeping and visa-versa.
Thank you SONY! You've never let me down..
Repeat customer since 1991

I gave these headphones to my husband for his birthday because the loud TV was driving me crazy. They solved the problem and he loves them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BillsCameraOpinions WIRELESS HEADPHONES THAT WORK GREAT
I have a Samsung 55" LED TV in which I've simply needed to enable headset usage so as to not disturb others if watching during late night. After buying applicable cables with proper plug ends, a new set of quality brand wired Headsets, much to mydisappointment Samsung does not provide an Audio Output on a $2,400 TV, with a signal sufficient to drive a simple set of headphones to enable even a low listening volume level. Swell!
After much reading about amplified wireless Headsets for TV usage - pros and cons - there is much hype about the Sennheiser #tm# brand of Headphones. After reading more about this Model of Sony Wireless Headsets, I took the chance and purchased these.
Wow... Very satisfied. The volume is fully adjustable to please the individual using them, they have a #25hr.# of usage with rechargeable LI-Ion battery that recharges in 2.5hrs. from an exhausted charge, they are comfortable to wear, the sound is in-depth, they are audibly "clear", you have three #3# channels to chose reception on, the transmitter/charging station is light weight, can be set at various locations nearby the TV itself, they do not cost a fortune, there is NO time delay #sync# between when you visually see a persons lip movement, vs. when you hear it in the headsets #an issue with some even more expensive brands#, they have a Red Charging On LED, a Green Audio On LED showing activity, they do not incur static into the Headsets when a program, movie, or video being watched has audio silence, and they have solved my problem nicely. There may be better Models, Brands, Types out there, but you will not be disappointed with these.
The only two small recommendations:
1. Design with separate Volume controls for each ear piece.
2. The audio Cable included is very short, only about 3' #1m# long. Change this to at least a 6' Cable to enable more flexible Transmitter positioning,
