What customers say about "Features"
Pioneer SE-DIR800C Wireless Headphones with Dolby Headphone Technology
  • Great headset for wireless connection to watch TV or DVD. As long as you stay in front of the transmitter and don't block the signal the sound quality is great.
  • Bass response is good, just miss the chest thump a subwoofer delivers.
  • They not only have excellent dynamic range and frequency response, they manage to produce simulated Dolby 5.1 sound that is hard to distinguish from "real" surround sound.
  • If someone walks in front of you (even the cat) the connection is caught and it cuts out for a few moments.
  • Signal cuts out if someone walks in front of you. Yell at them to not do that while watching a movie!
Sennheiser RS 180 Digital Wireless Headphones (Discontinued By Manufacturer)
  • They are comfortable, have long battery life and look nice. They are also simple to set up and sound decent.
  • These are way better than the RCA wireless headphones I had before. The hiss and background noise are gone. Range is decent. I get about 60ft around my house. Battery life is fantastic.
  • The felt ear cushions feel nice against the skin, don't over heat too bad, and I'm someone who is sensitive to heat.
  • The sound quality is excellent (particularly with music),the batteries last from 6-10 hours and they are extremely comfortable - possibly the most comfortable headphones I've ever used.
  • The main issue is the poor range. I couldn't go into the next room without connection failures - intolerable.
