What devices can I connect to these headphones?
Due to the standard 3.5mm jack plug on the transmitter, these headphones can be connected to a plethora of different devices. Whether it's your smartphone, TV, computer, hi-fi system or DVD player, you'll have no connectivity issues.

Are they easy to set up?
Thanks to the simple and easy to use design, setting up the system couldn't be easier. You simply have to connect the transmitter to your sound source of choice, turn everything on and you're good to go. It couldn't be simply to have great quality audio transmitted wirelessly to your ears.

The battery life lasts up to 10 hours too, perfect for those long music or TV marathons.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed My advice is don't buy! I bought a pair today and will be taking them back tomorrow for a full refund. So many reasons why : • Signal begins to drop out after only about 12m (spec. claims a 30m range), so I can't even move around my small open plan house without losing signal, let alone venture into the garden • Stereo is very unreliable - one channel or the other is prone to dropping out as you move around (very annoying!) • Headband is uncomfortably tight and creaks very noisily every time you move your head or chew (even more annoying !!) • Despite copious warnings about damaging your hearing though excessive sound pressure, at maximum volume they aren't even loud enough to drown out the creaking of the headband, let alone cause any physical damage! • I wore them for a couple of hours and my ears were wet with sweat and itching like mad. Not a patch on my old Sony analogue wireless headphone that I've happily used day in, day out for so many years they've literally fallen apart !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent design and comfortable to use. After a little difficulty in getting sufficient volume when I discovered that my TV allowed the headphone socket output volume to be adjusted this head set is remarkably comfortable and easy to use. Perhaps the one slight downside is the difficulty in placing the set in the charge cradle. But I'll soon master that. Altogether a very good buy.
