Sony MDR-RF865RK


Very impressed with these headphones. Lighter than they look and good sound quality to match. They also remain connected anywhere I wander in a 3 storey house

Could do with fitting more snugly, but I guess that depends on personal preference and the shape of your head

Sony MDR-RF865RK


Look good even when on charger,no need to hide them behind telly. Work best when plugged directly into Sky box or DVD player, best to have two leads as it saves unplugging from rear of units when you change from TV to DVD

Slightly top heavy due to built in charging system so when reclining they slip. Need extra cables for every unit, if they are plugged direct into TV,the volume needs to be near Max and then use mute button

Absolutely fab headphones, can't fault them although they are quite expensive (but worth it). Didn't have an output socket on my tv but used a scart lead straight from my virgin tivo box and it works great

Easy to set up ; Dual inputs (3.5mm & RCA) for either amp output or headphone socket ; Built in Li-ion battery ; On/off & volume controls on headset

Volume sometimes varies of its own accord. Not sure if it's related to signal compression
