Adapter:
"The sound using the headphone jack adapter was acceptable, but not great."
_
"The product is great... but the sound is not top notch... and the headset is not very comfortable.... also the adapter to make this work with your t. v. is sold separately by a separate seller and arrived two weeks after.... also make sure your t. v. has audio out connectors in the back ,,, because one of my t. v.'s did and one did not..."

"So order the adapter at the same time as the headphones and you'll be good to go as soon as everything arrives and you've fully charged the headphones."
_
"It plugged into back of one no problem but the other required a 3.5mm female RCA to stereo adapter, which isn't included."

_
"None of the small cords will fit in the wrong outlets jack holes."

Distance

_
"These headphones are great, go pretty good distance and are wireless!"

"The distance from the viewing area is great so if you need to run away and get something you can continue to listen to what is going on."

Fit

Fit:
"It would have gotten 5 stars but I don't like how it's not adjustable, it's pretty much one size fits all."
_
"Each ear piece can be moved horizontal and perpendicular making it hard to have a correct fit."
_

Heavy:
"Product too big and heavy doesn't stay on well or have the distance as advertised."

"They look like they would be painfully heavy and clumsy but they are light in weight and fit comfortably on your head."

Hissing

Hissing:
"has a hissing and weird click pop tap noise in the background that is audible when the volume is turned down."
_
"To all the people who leave negative feedbacks for those headphones - read the manual before you complain about poor sound, hissing noise, etc."
_
"Save your money, these are terrible, the background hissing will drive you crazy."
_
"Initially I was satisfied, but on just my second time using them the left headphone is completely silent except for a very annoying hissing noise."
_
"I'm not an electronics expert - so I don't know why there are so many complaints about hissing."
_
"Every single time, I have encountered hissing and crackling that is unbearable."
_
"Worked quite well, no issues with hissing when properly set up per instructions."
_
"Great sound for some sources,eg computer hookup but some hissing or whooshing sound when I connect to TV audio source thru the amplifier."
_
"Any ways I really enjoy the sound there is no hissing noise like some reviewers said, it hisses if you are close to another wireless electronic like for instance my headset at work when I get close to it with my headphones it will hiss other then that I love them, specially because they are wireless and can walk back ad forth from my desk to the fax machine and what not OH and the most important part I do not get to hear obnoxious music or gossip, they do not block off the sound in the background completely unless the volume is high but it works for me, one thing I do not like is the extra band or loop what ever its called on the top, it looks weird but I guess it would be the receiver?"
_
"You will need to turn the TV volume all the way down and the cable volume all the way up to get the best quality, there is minor hissing but nothing that really interferes with programing."
_
"I don't even know where to start, but i'll try to sum it up:- poor quality and design, very cheap looking;- very uncomfortable ( to the point of really hurting my ears );- the headset fit is not adjustable;- sound quality absolutely horrible;- terrible background noise;- a lot of statics no matter what you do;- this loud popping sound every little, that interrupts what you listening to COMPLETELY;- volume level pretty low ( all the noise in the background, hissing, popping, statics, and surrounding noise.... is way louder );- ... BAD!"

Hook

Hook:
"Comparatively speaking the RCA have poor sound, are not comfortable, do not hook up for stereo sound, dont charge by simply setting them on the cradle, instead you have to plug them in, and cost more."
_
"I WAS UNABLE TO HOOK IT UP DIRECTLY TO MY LG TELEVISION SO I CONNECTED IT TO MY CABLE BOX."
_
"The Only negative is that you need to buy an adapter cable to hook to the TV."

Instruction

Instruction:
"because the instructions were sparse to say the least making it hard to utilize the headset but I finally got it to work allthough the left side doesn't work right."
_
"But i followed the manufacturer's instructions and ran them completely dead the first couple times before charging to avoid 'memory'."
_
"The instructions on the manual are not very clear."
_
"They came with good instructions and will follow them to get the best performance from the batteries."
_
"Accurate instructions for instillation."
_
"The instructions you receive detail all this well, but it's important to know about the possible need for a Male to Female Y-Cable so you can order them together."
_
"Good instructions on charging and use."
_
"However, I have to give Amazon credit when it comes to returns, very easy to follow instructions as 1, 2, 3...but since there's no Return Label included in the box, you need to have a printer in order to print their Pre-Paid return label otherwise you're stuck again!"

Light

Light:
"They are very light weight and feel flimsy in design."
_
"The problem was that the power light on the sender did not go on."
_
"Therefore a dark power light does not mean that the sender has failed, unless there is a substantial audio input."
_
"Confusing on off switch (and indicator light arrangement) causes me to accidentally leave them on, which leads to run-down battery."
_
"I attempted to plug them into various outlets and the plug appeared to be faulty because the green indicator light would only come on briefly as you inserted the plug into the wall outlet."
_
"They will not work past two months even with very light use and you will not be able to return them after 30 days4."
_
"Light weight and comfortable."
_
"My previous head phones have been the less expensive very light corded on the ear style and have always been very comfortable to wear for hours."
_

_

_
"She doesn't hear well anymore & TV must be turned up really loud, so with these headphones she may have volume to her liking & the TV is quite to all others in her room."
_
"The 4-minute timer on the transmitter turns the audio off as advertised, but not before it sends a very loud and irritating pop into your ears."
_

_
"No matter how close you get to the dock they will still crackle and rape your ears.. not good if you like your music loud."
_
"The cracking and popping noises in the background while playing stereo music was too annoying."

_
"If you're into music you might not be too happy."
_
"They deliver adequate sound for enjoying visual media such as a tv show, but I would not recommend their use for music."

_
"Music performances sound really good."
_

_
"The instruction booklet had be folded and obviously read by someone else before I received it and the audio plug was missing from the package."

Plastic

Plastic:
"starts developing problems quickly down the road the plastic frame that connects to the rear of the cup is thin breaks easily"
_
"use good for 2 year now is works but the head plastic is dead"
_
"The problem is the inlet for the expansion strap to each ear cup is made of plastic and after a time it fails and I'm left with droopy headphones."
_
"I would recommend this product to anyone who has trouble hearing the sound on the HD TVs with crappy 3 4 x 4 speakers that are piped through plastic tubes that face down (most of them nowadays)."
_
"The headband is made of flimsy plastic with a piece of elastic fabric that stretches to adjust to the size of your head, but cannot be locked into position."
_
"Some people had no issues, while others complained of breaking the plastic or stripping the threading on the compartment trying to open it, if they could open it at all."
_
"use good for 2 year now is works but the head plastic is dead"
_
"Why RCA has not created a different plastic mold that is easier to open is beyond me, but it was a poor design decision."
_
"The headphones are made from a high-quality plastic and are a one-size-fits-all model."
_
"The matte plastic with shiny plastic is pretty slick looking, but the ear pieces are round instead of... lets say ear shaped, which can lead to problems."

Power

Power:
"Tried a new power supply and had the same problem."
_
"Mine is missing the power jack."
_
"The problem was that the power light on the sender did not go on."
_
"Therefore a dark power light does not mean that the sender has failed, unless there is a substantial audio input."
_
"RCA should make the headband wider so it won't slip so easily and the headband's spring action should be made more resistive..The power switch on the headset is counter-intuitive - that is; push the switch down to turn the unit on, and push the switch up to shut it down."
_
"The problem with this product was after the batteries had been recharged for four cycles to obtain full power, a dead zone was created by interference with the wireless home system my smart Tv and LIVIO were connected."
_
"I have purchased one of these before and it worked great until there was a power spike at my home that fried several electronic devices."
_
"A low power indicator for when recharging is needed would be nice, but no complaints."
_
"Further, the RCA instruction booklet and base unit use the designation Power to indicate the presence of an adequate audio signal on the base unit."
_
"The headphones are now operating very well as the uninterrupted sound and transmitting power is now very good."
_
"They must be pretty low power at the transmitter base."

Radio

Radio:

_
"The only reception I get is with the radio, and that is not the best reception."
_
"Another thing (but I guess it could just be my desk cluttered with wires)... With the base sitting just a couple feet away I get a popping sound that indicates some sort of radio problem between the base and headset."
_
"The quality of the sound is decent (think fm radio) and they appear to work well."
_
"It is great to listen to radio or TV without bothering anybody."

_
"works well but does receive other local radio signals"
_
"Comfort is very good but it comes with its own radio stations which I don't need, wanted to connect to my items."

_
"If I had any complaint, it'd be the range is a bit short."
_
"-1 star for weak range, -1 star for many many many cosmetic imperfections."

Reception

Reception:
"I do appreciate the fact that when it doesn't have clear reception, the sound cuts out completely instead of just getting fuzzy."
_

_
"I thought it was just a reception problem, however it continued to do it about every 30 seconds."
_
"Secondly, they do work, but the reception isn't always the greatest."

Size

Size:
"It would have gotten 5 stars but I don't like how it's not adjustable, it's pretty much one size fits all."
_
"You do need to go the extra step of plugging these into a small cord when you want to charge them which is inconvenient."
_
"The volume control wheel on the headset is small and not easily located by feel when you want to adjust the head phone volume."
_
"The only downside to these are no adjustment to different head sizes."
_
"However, they are large and because I am a small person they are not comfortable for me to wear for long periods."
_
"however i don't really like the bulky size or the fact that i can't snug them down to my own comfort level."
_
"I have a normal size head and never had a problem with it slipping off."
_
"It fits a large head comfortably ( my hat size is 7 3 4 +) , the volume is loud and clear and I have a 30 percent hearing loss."
_
"I bought two of these and they are really good for the small price."
_
"Would be nice if these were available in a more compact size."
_
"They could improve it by having a longer wire to connect to the TV, and by a better adjustment on the head piece to fit my small head, but it is working out and I love it."

"If I turned up the volume enough the sound would drown out the annoying hum, but at that volume I couldn't listen very long."

Speaker:

_
"They work great, I do not understand some of the complaints that have been posted about static or loss of volume."
_
"So far it works well, the long range through wall and floor is great, it has occasional static but the clarity and stereo volume are good, the volume is perfectly clear at a lower setting than the other one so this should give me some choices when listening to things with variable volumes, better than the Philips."

"Works great, running through 1 drywall, has static here and there but 98% of the time it sounds great."
_
"Other than that the sound quality is great and I had no problems with static or drop-outs when I was walking around the house...even to other floors."

Volume

Volume:
