Charging:

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"The comfort is a little weak, though I am used to BOSE headphones"
_
"pros-good sound quality-great battery life-sound range is good even when you are walking around and in different rooms-very easy set upcon-they tend to fall of if you are doing any kind of a small activity-foam used around the ear feels very cheap and makes you uncomfortably hot, so long time use is uncomfortable- the more comfortable replacement buds are 20 dollars a pair (for the genuine ones)over all they are good but for a 90 dollar head phone i expect better quality ear foam and if possible they could shrink the head band and give more traction so they can stay on your head when you are moving around or looking down for 10 seconds."
_
"The only minor complaint I have about these headphones are the comfort."
_
"Work great, very comfortable."
_
"They are very comfortable, fit well, and reproduce high quality sound."
_
"They are very comfortable and far far superior to ear bud style ones"
_
"Good sound quality, comfortable."
_
"The sound is crisp and clear, the sound level is adjustable, and the headphones are comfortable."

_
"I've lost two sets of these in this fashion, and one of these also had trouble with the volume control failing."
_
"She can control the TV volume for the room and she's happy, I'm happy and I bet the neighbors are happy too."
_
"the stereo separation and sound quality is perfect for music and speech, the level control is perfect, the RF tuning system seems to have a self centering feature, you can hear the audio from the content on the TV all over the house, the fit of the headphones to the human head is amazing since you can place it so you loose track of its being there, and the system didn't cost a bunch."
_
"The volume control and off on control are very easy to use."

Loud

Loud:
"My husband has terrible hearing and now he can have the TV as loud as he wants, while I have it much quieter or even muted."

Music

Music:
"The built-in limiter can make some music sound horrible."
_
"The other problem I had with these headphones is when the signal turns off (example: you listen to a few mp3s in a folder and the music ends but you're too engrossed in what you're doing to change music) after about 30 seconds of dead silence a sharp piercing sound interrupts you're zen state of silence followed by loud white noise."
_
"All in all, for the hearing impaired they are fantastic for watching TV and listening to music."

"Music with these phones is fantastic."
_
"the stereo separation and sound quality is perfect for music and speech, the level control is perfect, the RF tuning system seems to have a self centering feature, you can hear the audio from the content on the TV all over the house, the fit of the headphones to the human head is amazing since you can place it so you loose track of its being there, and the system didn't cost a bunch."
_
"Watching to TV and listening to music with these headphones, we can be good neighbors and respectful of each other when only one of us wants to listen and one wants quiet."
_
"Got these for a +70 year old who refuses to wear his hearing aids, Allows him to pump up the sound and not blast the rest of the people in the room, I used them to listen to music for about 1 or 2 hours before handing them over, Range was good, Clarity was good charging could be questionable if you miss putting them on the stand correctly, So they do what they advertise and the sound is great but adjusting the Volume you are almost certainly going to change the channel and your loud sound in your ears is going to be mind tearing static because the tuner and the volume are identical and placed next to each other."
