Works as hoped.


Easy to set up with the TV. Works better than TV Ears since the sound doesn\'t break up if you move around or raise your arm in front of the headset. Sound is good and easy to adjust. Fits comfortably.

Best Headset I\'ve ever owned


This is the second Sennhieser that I own. The other set is in the bedroom. What makes this truly better than its competition is that nothing interferes with the sound. With others I bought and send back, your arm, hand, a piece of clothing...etal will...

Excellend sound quality


Excellent sound quality, especially verbal (i.e. talking) during TV. Only con is that it feels like it is going to fall out of my ears, but it doesn\'t. "feels" heavy, but "pros", i.e. sound quality, outweigh cons.

Sennheiser Set 840-TV


These were purchased for my mom who is hard of hearing. Having gone through two TV Ears headsets in less than two years (the same earpiece stems broke on both), I decided to research other options for her. So far, we\'re delighted with the Sennheiser...
