I've had Panasonic wired headphones for some time and they have always sounded good, so on this recommendation and those of my fellow revewers I chose to buy these headphones. Yes, they are truly superb! My hearing tails off at 1K due to old age and abuse through years of P.A. work, so I was so pleases when I listened to CDs and discovered I could hear the words of vocals again, and last night I listened to Andre Rieu on DVD through our TV - simply wonderful!!!
I am so pleased, that today I've ordered another set from Amazon - yes they are the cheapest I can find , and their service is excellent, so that I can leave the original set attached to the TV in the lounge, and the second set will be permanently set up in my studio/ office so I can again listen to CDs for pleasure, even while I work, without the hassle of changing the units over.
Oh! - the other big plus for us is that my wife and I can watch TV and DVDs together without the TV being uncomfortably loud and yet at the same time communicate with each other, since thanks to the excellent surround sound feature of the headphones the volume doesn't have to be too high on them or the TV - and there are no wires for the dogs to trip over. (Don't tell anyone - you can even go to the loo and still hear what's going on down stairs - wonderful!)
Well done Panasonic, and well done Amazon for making them available and affordable!
