Bought these for my elderly mother who was really quite deaf and had the T.V. volume so loud nearly deafend the rest of us It was a new lease of life for her she could now hear what was being said on her soaps.

Wouldn't do for classical music but for... (read more)

This set is underrated - in many ways. Okay, - I can say one thing that's "wrong" with them - it's only FM audio quality. And there is a low noice in the background, if you turn the volume above medium (that's loud!) But - They are very stable - and in high quality. Mine are over 8 years old, and used every week ! They only use a little bit of power - maybe one AAA alkaline per 50 hours. There is NO clicks, spikes or interrupting noise like with most other sets, because of the IR... (read more)

I bought a pair - the background hiss was louder than the tv show I was watching.
I returned them and thE shop assistant said he only had one other pair returned with this problem, so I decided to swaP my dud pair for a new set. WRoNG!
Got hOme and had exactly the same problem. These headphones are an unusable DUD. You can even plug in a long chord to use them.
Don't buy these without testing them in the shop. (read more)

would appreciate being able to purchase the foam pads and headphones without the remainder of the set, as we have been using them for years have a stockpile of unused transmitters. I am deaf and have found them great. (read more)

Sony MDR-IF140K infra red headphones and transmitter
These headphones are sold with the claim that they are able to reproduce hi-fi quality sound, suitable for use when listening to music or watching TV.
I purchased two sets of these headphones, one for myself, the other for my wife to use with our internet based TV viewing, terrestrial TV viewing and listening to music. Unfortunately I bought them before reading the previous reviews here. As with others I thought Sony would be a good brand... (read more)

The sound quality is great if you are 4 feet away and in a neck brace! because the slightest movement causes an annoying hissing sound, the build quality is what I'd describe as "fragile". Avoid these!
We all know Sony normally make good quality kit, unfortunately they have fallen well short of even achieving semi reasonable.
In 3 words- cheap and nasty.
PS No F****** thanks to the snotty staff at Bennett's electrical in Gt Yarmouth whom tried to tell me I couldn't return them....what a... (read more)

My reason for purchasing the Sony MDR-IF140k wireless headphones was so that I could listen to music at work without distraction from or distracting others, and so that I would not constantly catch on a lead which we all know can be quite painful on the ears.
I was a little reluctant to spend £30 on a pair of headphones but I felt that they would be worth the money if they gave me what I needed.
The product consists of two main items. Firstly there is a transmitter box that plugs in to a... (read more)

I was little bit concerned if the IR headphones would really meet the basic requiremnt of being "cordless". The question that I could not find the answer was if the coverage of IR headphone is sufficient enough to cover middle-size room and still not losing the signal while moving around. Aren't you bothered by the same while choosing between RF and IR?
But don't worry. This works excellent !!! You can put the transmitter wherever you want to - and you are still on. I did even put it under... (read more)
