Just what I wanted. A great buy!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sony TV and HiFi Over-Ear Headphones - Black (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
Bought these headphones nearly two years ago and still consider them one of my best buys ever. I wanted them so I could hear the living room TV while I'm in the kitchen and elsewhere in the house. And they're perfect for this, no annoyed neighbours and I can even continue listening if I pop out to the garden.
On first use I found them a bit heavy but you get used to them. And, as another reviewer pointed out, they are a little big (too big for children, for example) and not the most attractive item. But they make up for that in the freedom they have given me (Doctor Who while washing up? Don't mind if I do!). I say freedom - I'm clearly just lazy and TV-addicted, but they make me feel a little less lazy at the very least!
As mentioned by others, turn the stereo/TV volume up and no hiss at all.
You won't regret this purchase. But if Sony are listening, a smaller version wouldn't go amiss ;)
Edit: Since writing this review I've realised that I've accepted that headphones are never going to fit properly (these do hurt behind the ears after an hour or so, especially when I have my glasses on). I shouldn't accept this. Hence I've changed my rating from 5 to 4 stars. But I can't help still loving them.
