    So, I've long been wanting a good wireless headset that could connect to both my computer and office Blu-ray setup (40-inch Google TV in this case) at the same time. So far, this is the best set I've seen on the market, and while it's close to perfect it has a couple of minor issues that prevent me from giving it five stars. - First, the PROS: - Nicely built, super sleek, yet very comfortable and light, I could wear these for hours. - Stylish charging station, headphones fit on them very elegantly. - Useful lights in the front explaining the signal type (Dolby Digital, DTS, etc.) - Good, clear sound with zero hiss whatsoever, which was essential for me. - Clear, obvious right and left ear markers (in red), something more and more headphones are leaving out. - CONS - The base station wakes up automatically when you pick up the headset but the headphones do not, a big miss if you ask me, particularly since the station turns them off automatically when docking. Minor but asking me to turn it on manually each of the thousands of times I'll pick it up when it could do it automatically is a somewhat surprising oversight. - The bass just seems to lack punch. The sales literature says there are huge drivers in the earpieces but they just don't deliver here until you hit too high a volume. Bass is still fairly good mind you, just not utterly crisp like Sennheiser wireless headsets. - Buttons on the headphones, particularly the volume control, are very hard to use once the headset is on. There's a tiny bump next to the volume dial so your fingers can find it, but it's still very hard to change without taking off because it's so recessed. If the latter three points had been addressed, I'd say this headset won't be beat for years, however as it is it's merely very, very good since the manual turn on and volume control are small, constant nags. Can't say much about the surround sound BTW, I just can't hear it myself. Bottom line: Worth the investment unless you're waiting for absolute perfection.

    I used to have similar wireless headset from Philips some 10 years ago. They did the job they were supposed to do very well. Now, I have no idea why this low quality product can ever get on the market. The promised 150 feet range might work, but I have no idea where. The best distance that I've been able to get without excruciating noise is 6 feet. Beyond that one has to be happy with the same voice quality level that existed on 40+ years old FM car radios. Well, actually I take it back. Those FM car radios had a lot better voice quality. Overall this piece of thing (not worth calling it headset) is good only for fishing net weight (but remember to remove the battery first).

    The Best By Far

    By Ayersco

    from San Antonio, Texas

    Comments about Sony MDRRF925RK Wireless Headphone:

    I purchase these in June of 2013. I've had them for two months and have nothing but great things to say about these headphones. I watch TV at night while my wife sleeps and these allow her undisturbed sleep while they are very comfortable for me to wear six to eight hours. They sound incredible, the volume is louder than I ever would listen to music or television. They were simple to install and I have NOT had any problems to date.

        I'm Hearing Impaired

        By Boku2

        from Bellmore, NY

        Comments about Sony MDRRF925RK Wireless Headphone:

        Since my hearing is impaired, anything that helps me amplify sound so I can enjoy time with my family is a treasure. I still need to use closed captions on most movies and TV shows but it's treat to hear the voices and music along with it. It was always just disruptive noise to me before, even with hearing aids. I'm really grateful to be able to share watching movies and TV with my family again. Before I got this I was only able to watch on my computer because it has high end sound card,and I stream movies and TV shows. Being part of my family again is wonderful.

        Good performance for the money

        By Chubb1

        from Oceanside, CA

        Comments about Sony MDRRF925RK Wireless Headphone:

        These wireless headphones do a pretty good job of sound quality and comfort. They work well in the immediate area of my living room. They are sensitive to radio frequency noise generators (TV, computer, playstation, etc) and seem to work best line of sight. The only problem I have found is the noise reduction system pumping during extreme low frequency playback (pipe organ 10-20 hz), which you would normally never encounter.

        Great for what I needed!

        By Tekio

        from USA

        Comments about Sony MDRRF925RK Wireless Headphone:

        I'm satisfied with my purchase. They are a bit staticy, but provide a good movie experience. The static is acceptable. If you plan on using these for music, look else-where. I bought these because I live in a condo and hate watching movies with the volume so low. These offered a solution. I have a great movie watching experience, and my neighbors can sleep at night. Wifi at 2.4ghz will cause crackling at times. BUT.... Any rf audio is gonna suffer from this. Not just Sony products. The biggest con is the Sony proprietary form-factor of the battery. Four stars from me.

        MDR DS6500 vs. Sennheiser RS170's

        By cgoetze

        from Overland Park, KS

        Pros

        • great sound with excellent frequency response
        • with both analogue and digital input

        Cons

        • sony does not allow you to buy stand alone headphone to use with the base station

        Best Uses

          Comments about Sony MDRRF925RK Wireless Headphone:

          The Sennheiser's and the Sony's both sound great they have a lot of punch and crispness. Sennheiser specializes in headphones and microphones (I understand), so the RS 170's have the signature sound of the excellent Sennheiser products. They do not disappoint in terms of audio listening quality but then neither do the Sony's. The amp in the Senheiser's seems a bit more powerful (picks up signals faster) than the comparably priced Sony's. However the Sony's have a very respectfully powerful full audio presentation and are possibly fuller in their dynamic range and clarity of instrumentality than the Sennheiser's. The Sony's are a bit more comfortable to wear and I seem to experience less listener fatigue over a long listening session with the Sony's even in analogue mode. The Sony surround processing is more complex and sophisticated with DTS, Dolby Digital and Dolby Logic Pro II, as well as a dialogue speech clarity mode. The Sennheiser surround processing mode is simple and sufficient along with a nice little bass boost separately if you want it. The Sony's have a digital mode with an optical cable in that is desirable especially if you a device that has only a digital output such as the Apple TV. The Sony's in digital input mode have a very clean and crisp sound compared to analogue, although somewhat quieter volume wise with the digital sound experience. In my experience the digital mode has the least listener fatigue in a really long listening session. I'm keeping both the Sony's and the Sennheiser's as they are both very good and each has a lot to recommend them individually. The Sony's have a slightly better wireless distance range listed in their specs, 100 meters, compared to 80 meters for the RS 170's. Neither wireless headphone will reach to my pillow in my bedroom without cutting out (bummer there)! Even though the specs indicate a 20 meter difference between the two in actual experience it amounts to only about 10 feet within my bedroom at the opposite end of the house after going through walls, etc. I have a very long house. Both headphones would likely reach anywhere in a normal medium to large home. Controls on the two wireless headphones are different. Both headphones have on and off controls on their base stations. The Sennheiser's can control the surround and bass boost from the headphone itself as well as the base station. The Sony's however have controls for the various sound processing modes only on its base station. The Sony's have a dial on the headphone to control volume and an off and on button for the headphones not the base station. The RS 170's can control all its functions from the headphone except turning the base station off and on. Both headphones sit neatly on top of their base stations for charging. The Sony battery life is longer and employs lithium ion batteries instead of nickel cad for the Sennheiser's. A Bose rep told me lithium ion batteries are a big factor in the audio quality of wireless headphones and thus the lack thereof of sufficient availability of them is the primary reason Bose has yet to produce wireless headphones. These Sony's are the first wireless headphone to use lithium ion batteries to my knowledge. The Sony's have both a digital input as well as an analogue instead of just an analogue on the RS 170's. I planned to send one or the other of these headphones back, but they're a toss up, so I'm keeping them both! There is probably a technical edge to the Sony's, with their feature set, their wireless range, outstanding audio quality and dynamic range, but their lack of being able to purchase additional stand alone headphones to work with the base station, as the Sennheiser's allow, along with a certain subjective something to the Sennheiser's audio quality won't allow me to let the Sennheiser's go! Or I may just buy another set of the Sony's to give me a second headphone set cause I sure can't let the Sony's go either!

            Simulated 7.1 output, not 7.1 input

            By Basis

            from Salt Lake City, UT

            Comments about Sony MDRRF925RK Wireless Headphone:

            I think by 7.1 it means using the virtual sound technology to upmix either 2.0 stereo sound input or 5.1 channel sound input to 7.1. I don't think SPDIF supports 7.1 sound. I have ordered it and we'll see soon. Let me put five star for now.
