    Greetings,

    My mother’s TV Ears brand TV listening system kept suffering from broken earphones. I got fed up repairing them, or purchasing replacement headphones when I knew they just would not last.

    I ordered the Sennheiser Set840 and its sound quality and construction quality just blow TV Ears out of the water! The reception is crystal clear. Even when walking into other rooms.

    With Sennheiser’s long experience in selling high-end hi-fi headphones, I was justified paying the extra cost for the model 840. They are worth every penny.

    Installation took less than two minutes. And we like the 4 sound (treble) settings for extra clarity during voice broadcast. They are also superior for musical programs.

    First class equipment all round.

    Granted, the Sennheiser TV Listening device is not cheap. Neither is an Acura, BMW or Mercedes. You won’t get quality in a $19 listening device. The packaging of this unit is truly incredible. Even the little plastic bags are unique in opening each containing all the extra cords. The instructions come with a quick start card and a complete technical manual in several languages. The quick start card is terrific(who has time to read a 40+ page regular manual). Everything (and I mean everything) has been considered for hooking up the unit which depends upon the type of TV you have in your home. Several difference connection configurations are illustrated on the quick start card. They are easily understood especially since I know nothing about electronics. Each supplied power cord is labeled in addition to a pic and how it looks all right on the quick start card. Remember, there are two different model units when you place the initial order. I ordered the radio frequency model (RF) as opposed to the infra-red (IR) model because the IR model requires a direct line of sight communication with the headset whereas the RF goes thru walls. In other words, you can walk around with the RF headset anywhere and the sound is perfect. The IR model cannot be placed behind the TV as the TV obstructs the line of sight for the infra-red to communicate…..with the radio frequency model(RF)it’s not a problem. Place the base trasnmitter behind the TV and it operates just fine.
    In a few words: Sennheiser is a company which is user friendly offering a First Class product at a reasonable price considering the quality of the unit. I did have one question, called the company directly and got an instant accurate answer. Believe me…You won’t go wrong with this product.

    The Sennheiser SET840 -TV RF Assistive Listening Headphones enable me to clearly hear what is being said on the TV. It does this by blocking out extraneous noise and by allowing the user to supply stronger signals to the weaker ear. Sennheiser has good customer and tech support. I am pleased to not have to strain and replay segments in order to hear and understand what was said. Good for listening to music, too.
