better than many

The product is lightweight and comfortable as advertised, and the physical transmitted signal spread is wider than some other headphone brands (don't have to re-aim the base transmitter when sitting in different locations in the room).  Signal quality is good overall, although at high amplification (from an analog source, at least) there can be a bit of static in the higher frequencies.  If you're thinking about this unit because you don't hear well, this won't be a problem -- if you're thinking about this unit as a convenience to not bug other people when you're listening by headphone, you probably won't amplify the signal enough to generate the static.  The stethescope style places the receiver lower than traditional headphones, though, and therefore easier to accidentally block with things in your hands (newspaper, food, etc.) -- this is really the only minor disappointment we've had with the device.  Headphones are easy to charge (battery was almost fully charged out of the box), and the additional battery slot in the transmitter base is convenient for keeping a backup at the ready -- we haven't yet drained the battery completely in normal use, so cannot comment on the accuracy of the advertised full battery capacity.  Auto-off function (based on the spread of the stethescope arms of the headphone unit) works as described.

Would I recommend this to a friend or family member? Yes
  • Easy to Use
