What devices can I use with these headphones?
Thanks to the multitude of connectors included with your purchase, you'll be able to connect these headphones to almost any device. There is a 3.5 mm jack plug, a 6.3 mm jack adapter, and a twin phono adapter too. This means you can connect to smartphones, tablets, computers, TVs, hi-fi systems, DVD and Blu-ray players and many more.

Are they simple to set up?
All you have to do to set the system up is connect your choice of sound source to the transmitter, switch the source and the headphones on, and you're good to go! The auto scan and channel select feature does most of the work for you, enabling you to quickly start listening and enjoying true freedom of movement whilst listening to your music or TV show.

What's the range and battery performance like?
The range of this system is simply fantastic. With a maximum distance of 100m you can be anywhere in your home, either tending to your garden or tidying up the garage and have no signal issues. The batteries are rechargeable, and have a large amount of cycles in their lifespan- so you won't need to replace them any time soon. However if you do, there are instructions in the manual on how to do this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I saw Andy's review regarding the difficulty he had in putting these headphones on the charging base. I still went ahead and bought them. I'm so glad I did as these phones were absolutely superb. I have been severely deaf since birth and when I go to bed at night I have had enough of my hearing aids and these are the only phones I've used (both wired and wireless) that allow the volume to be loud enough for me to hear. As for the charging Andy, no need to fiddle, just don't put the left earphone into the cradle, it charges perfectly and doesn't knock or jar from its cradle easily whilst charging. Such an excellent piece of gear I'm getting another set for downstairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have just purchased your headphones to use out in my apartment in the Canary Islands. I was impressed with your existing reviews but took them with a pinch of salt. At the same time i bought a set of Sennheiser Headphones costing twice as much to use at home. I cannot beleive the quality of your phones, they are great. Even the instructions are in a book and not just a piece of thin paper like the Sennheiser's instructions. They are also in a clear easy to read format. You also get three Audio jacks with yours , not the basic two with the Sennheiser's. The quality of this product is unbelievable for the money. Most importantly the sound is excellent and you have a volume control and Auto Scan Tuner. I am 75 and wear two hearing aids, so does my wife, so we need good reception. I am now going to order a second set for my wife. Yours very Sincerely Roy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought my first pair a year ago and for the price they give very good results over a surprising range and represent excellent value, hence 5*. They are not perfect. Getting them on the charger is fiddly and it is easy to dislodge them. If you use them close to some other electrical items you can pick up interference. It seems fatuous to complain about the build quality when you consider the price. My only gripe is that you can now get them on offer for cheaper than I paid ;)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from For the price I didnt expect the sound quality to blow my mind. However i was completely dissatisfied. I struggle to find where the batteries were to go due to not being provided even the most basic of instruction manuals. Then i found the charging system awkward to get the connection points to meet due to the poor design. After all that there is a loud hissing noise like static coming from the headphones. On a brighter note the self adjusting head band was comfy, but ill be returning these as soon as I can and getting some from a decent brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This purchase was a replacement for a supposedly superior set purchased elsewhere. I use them when watching TV as my hearing is not perfect and I sit about 14ft from the TV. I have a second set for the bedroom TV which I purchased some time ago. They are excellent. Should they ever fail I would replace them with the same brand and similar model if available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have been looking for my 1st pair of wireless headphones for ages and so have been researching a load of them, until i came across this pair at a really good price. Them came by the royal mail this morning, once i got home from work i unpacked them and set them up really easily without any problems ( the manual is really easy to read). The sound is just amazing through these headphones even far distance away, i dont get any interference at all, even when their is no sound through the headphones, nothing. As this is my very 1st pair of wireless headphones and i am so happy with them , i would 100% recommend these to anybody

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good performance for my deaf father who finds it much clearer sound than using his deaf aid and TV turned up loud - this suits other members of the family who no longer cringe with the over-loud TV! Being very tricky to locate on the charger is the only problem we have found. I have not tested the transmission range. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first wireless headphones and after reading the varied reviews for both top of the range and more modest versions I had some concerns. The first set had a significant level of 50 Hz noise. I returned them to the store and reluctantly ordered a replacement set - I was advised that this item seldom has problems. Good advice as 2nd set = 10/10. Great sound, works off my PC, lap tops, DAB tuner & TV. Range over 50 m (top of the garden), very little interference & comfortable.

My TV has two output audio sockets - not the single jack - a white and a red output socket. Has the headset base unit an adapter for this setup?

Asked by: GeoffB
Yes the headset comes with a RCA socket audio adapter for the set up you are using.
