    These headphones provide a high quality sound and the large size provides the comfort needed to wear for several hours. They are not heavy and I don't even realize that I'm wearing them after a short while. I highly recommend these for anyone who likes to watch TV in bed and not disturb anyone.

    These headphones are horrible. I followed the directions exactly as indicated. I plugged it in and let it charge until the indicator went off (about 17 hours). I made sure no cables were crossed and the transmitter was in a good isolated location. It's all for not as the sound received by the headphones is inconsistently noisy depending on how subtle the sound is and how you hold your head. And yes, I tried all three channels, the auto tuning button, moving the transmitter around -- everything suggested in the manual. These headphones just don't work well. The sound quality varies inconsistently, and I blame the active filtering built into the headphones. When no music or sound is playing, they are dead silent. Low frequency passes (rumbling, roars, bass drum, thumps, etc...) also contain no hiss. As soon as a high-frequency sound starts to play, the headphones are filled with a high-frequency hissing noise on top of the actual sound. Move around the room and the hiss will increase and decrease. Stand three feet from the transmitter, and the hiss will mostly be gone, until you turn your head and the hiss fades in and out depending on the angle of your head. These headphones are unusable. It's a shame -- for they're light and very comfortable to wear. The charging mechanism works great too. AND they ingeniously turn themselves on and off simply by wearing them or taking them off your head. But none of it matters for headphones are all about sound, and the sound quality coming out of these headphones is full of hissing and static. The more subtle the passages in the music, the louder the hiss is amplified. It's says Sony on the package, which is surprising. This is the first Sony product I've purchased (20+ years) that I've ever been unsatisfied with.

    Perfect

    By TCoRED

    from Sarasota, Florida

    Comments about Sony MDR-RF970RK Wireless Stereo Headphone:

    These are amazing headphones, truly. The fact that they're wireless makes them great for playing guitar and is very nice when I want to get food and listen to music from youtube. I love the quality, 10 - 22k HZ is better than a pair of 400$ pair of "Dr. Dre Beats" that comes in at about 20 - 20k HZ. Extremely comfortable to wear for prolonged use. The only thing that's not great is the fact that they are not bluetooth so the device you are listening from must be anchored, but a pair of bluetooth stereo headphones is 200$+ so it's ok.

    Met my needs...

    By DJPabloB

    from Brazil

    Comments about Sony MDR-RF970RK Wireless Stereo Headphone:

    In my opinion, who are talking about this bad phone or purchased it with defective or not properly use this knowledge, I have one here and it works perfectly without interference or noises, and looks to have a wi-fi network at home with D-link router 635. I really liked the way it charges the battery and the duration of the load, not to mention the distance that he arrives, walk my whole apartment without losing the signal, I loved it, the only thing I missed was more severe, I am really enjoying it out of my purchase!

    Best present ever...

    By Ladyartsy

    from Dallas, TX

    Comments about Sony MDR-RF970RK Wireless Stereo Headphone:

    My hearing is not what it used to be. I can hardly hear the TV unless it's blaring. Now I can hear everything on the TV and not blow everyone out of the room. I can walk all the way back to the restroom with them on and still hear everything that's showing. Oh, and the music.... the music coming out of this headset from our TV shows is awesome. I love it.

      Comments about Sony MDR-RF970RK Wireless Stereo Headphone:

      There are a lot of reviews here that are misleading because the whiners don't give you the full story. A 27' travel trailer is measured from the end of the tongue to the back of the rear bumper and rounded up to the next even foot. Sony probably does a similar range test with this unit in an open field. its the way all things are measured...absolute best conditions, so live with it. Nothing deceptive. As with all thing wireless, range is not determined by the device but obstacles it must deal with. The batteries are a standard AA NM rechargeable at any Walmart. Been there done that. One headset at a time in the broadcast area...2 or more doesn't work well. Doesn't work as desired on my CRT TV (old technology)but is a dream on my HDTV. I can mute that TV and listen at the volume I want..no static, no interference. Bad reviews are often from stupidity and/or higher than reasonable expectations of a product to do something it wasn't designed to do. Got a friend one and he is in headphone heaven. We both have hearing issues. For MY needs it is a dream answer, with no issues

      $3 for the packaging

      By Houston1

      from Houston, TX

      Comments about Sony MDR-RF970RK Wireless Stereo Headphone:

      performance: 0 2 main problems. 1/ The other wireless network (radio, wifi, neighboors wifi, etc...) interfer and make scratchy weird noise. 2/ all the ABS parts make loud squeezing sound covering the movie you try to hear, each time a muscle of your face move a little bit. Design:0. It looks goods, but poor plastic conception make squeezing noise. Reliability:0. Tomorrow, it get back to the seller. Value;0. for 3 or 5 dollars, you can have a better sound, in a poor low price headphone

      worst product ever

      By Crick

      from Elyria, Oh

      Comments about Sony MDR-RF970RK Wireless Stereo Headphone:

      I purchased these for my father. We followed the directions exactly. The battery was supposed to be fully charged after @ 16 hrs. Twenty-one hours later it still wasn't charged. We were unable to get any sound at all. There are only a few options to try and none of them worked. I give this product one star and that's only because they look attractive.

      Sony Quality

      By MilVet

      from Rochester, NY

      Comments about Sony MDR-RF970RK Wireless Stereo Headphone:

      Before buying I read the reviews and thought that all the negative ones were probably from people who just love to find fault. After buying these I tend to agree with them. 1. The headset is not adjustable for a better fit. 2. Very poor sound quality with virtually no bass 3. Static and interference with the transmitter less than 15' the headset 4. a squeal or squeak from the plastic connection between the earpiece and the headband whenever I move my head. All in all I am very disappointed in the overall quality of these headphones. I will say that this is the first poor quality Sony product that I have ever purchased in 30+ years as a consumer.

        Comments about Sony MDR-RF970RK Wireless Stereo Headphone:

        These are great headphones for the price. I still decided to get the mdrrf970rk after reading some good and bad reviews... well I have no clue why there would be bad reiviews on this product(examples complaining about hiss and pop)which I get none of! Maybe its something interfering with their signal?Idk. Overall, good product for the price.
