Sony MDRDS6500 Digital Surround Headphones

Posted: 2012-03-16  Reviewer: Shjert Jutl

Excellent headphone for hearing impaired for watching TV . Works on Plasma TV's with no static or interference, which many other models would not .
Posted: 2012-04-11  Reviewer: Taxes driver

I'm too old to be fooling with complicated setups like some of the other (younger) reviewers have done, so I'll stick to what works for me. I started out with a cheapo pair of Sonys, still being sold after ten years. Terrible mistake. They hurt my ears and showed static when ever I moved my head. The best selling point on the new one was the battery life, a brand new feature on this model. A three hour charge lasts 20 hours, but you will rarerly completely discharge the battery anyway. A big plus. Since I only use my headphones for watching TV and my iPad I cannot comment on the complicated setup most reviewers are enamored with. Also, I don't notice the 7.1surround sound and dont know how this would be possible given you only have two ears. That said, the headphones produce beautiful sound, are completely comfortably , and are well worth the extra price. I would recommend them to folks who are getting on years and don't want the TV blasting and disturbing the wife. This seems to be the only think decent thing Sony is making these days.
