    When I wear a pair of headphones, I find it annoying to hear a little bit of hiss or static that is not from the source audio, but for relatively cheap products, I can deal with it. With the Sony MDR-IF240RK headphones, the constant hiss and static are nearly as loud as the source audio. This happens if I am 1 foot away from the transmitter or 10 feet away. I have tried using both the Red/White RCA to minijack setup and the minjack to minijack setup, and both work as horribly as each other. And no, I am not using a plasma TV. These headphones are useless. Even if they were four bucks, I would advise you not to buy them.

    Great sound, March 2013

    By MACisco

    from San Francisco, CA

    Comments about Sony MDRIF240RK IR Headphone:

    These headphones have exceptional sound. They're extremely clear, have amazing bass of all things and really deliver a quality sound experience. They are large and sort of require that you are sitting up or with your head facing forward. For instance, if you're being lazy in bed, you can't really adjust comfortably to lying on your side to watch tv with one ear on a pillow. It would be ideal if the headphones could twist to allow for that minor listening experience. Overall, they deliver, plain and simple.

    Proper set up

    By Kahn2007

    from Ohio

    Comments about Sony MDRIF240RK IR Headphone:

    These do exactly what I wanted., a way to watch TV late at night when I get home from work without disturbing the household. I had hissing until I figured out how to set them up. Plug them into the earphone jack. This turns off the TV speakers and just leaves the headphones on. Turn the headset volume down and turn the tv volume up loud to 65 or so. Remember the TV speakers are off now. Then adjust the headphone volume to your comfort level. No hissing. If you leave the tv at normal volume setting and try to turn up the headphone volume you will get hissing.

    Just what I needed

    By msario

    from Sacramento, CA

    Comments about Sony MDRIF240RK IR Headphone:

    This is perfect. It's got the volume on the headset itself, and that's pretty convenient, easy to hook up, long battery life, etc. The only downside for me so far is that when I go to use the bathroom and it loses connection with its stand, all you hear is loud static. Drives me crazy. But for its price, I guess that's negligible.

    Great Value

    By Brettstr42

    from Costa Mesa, CA

    Comments about Sony MDRIF240RK IR Headphone:

    I second jhjr4 in that the other reviewers don't understand audio equipment. Turn up your source volume to max (or near it) and then slowly turn up your headset. Be careful not to unplug the headphone jack otherwise you'll wake up the neighborhood with your speakers. They give great sound when setup properly. IR needs line of sight so make sure you can setup them so, otherwise, you'll have poor quality. The headset is comfortable. It doesn't squeeze your head and they are very light. If you move your head rapidly they could fall off. One note, the ear cushions fall off constantly. Once they came off the 1st time I couldn't get them to stay on. Probably could use some glue to tape but still, it's a pain. I actually lost one of the cushions so I am hoping that I can order replacement cushions. Without the cushions, the set is almost un-wearable. All in all for the price, sound, and comfort...a great value.

    A Waste of Money

    By QuietWineGuy

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Sony MDRIF240RK IR Headphone:

    I got these with the express purpose of enjoying TV while exercising. The amount of extra hiss & static was unbearable when on the treadmill . . . an absolute waste of money. What were they thinking when advertising materials show people on equipment with big smiles. This is not the Sony I loved as a boy.

      I am very happy with my recent purchase. It was easy to hook-up to my sony tv. The battery life is great, the battery charging docking system is easy to use. I've had 3 other head phones in the past. This is the best. For the price hands down go and buy these ones

      Best wireless head phone

      By Sigrid

      from Austin, TX

      Comments about Sony MDRIF240RK IR Headphone:

      We have two of these headphones for our family room Bravia TV that are WONDERFUL. We enjoy British movies and you can actually understand every word using the headphones. He wears them for all TV watching as he is a bit hard of hearing and I don't have to endure the loud sound. I can even mute the TV, and he can listen at whatever volume through the headset. I bought them at Brookstone, but now they just have their brand. BAD! We set it up in the bedroom. The volume you get through the headset is what the TV is set on. Therefore you can't have one person sleep with the other is watching TV like with these Sony ones.
      We should have come to this site for another Sony.
