Product Reviews for Sony MDR-RF970RK Wireless Stereo Headphone
from OR on 9/28/2011
Delivers on my needs
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

Everything, Light, Nice sound
A little big(not a con for me because it makes them more comfortable)
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.

New Tech Wireless and easy charge, Noise cancelling, Second headband for save battery life
Rustling when you higher volume, Sound quality is not like i expected
I really love design and quality of that product. It produces new technology. However i cant say sound quality is same good. Its acceptable but not like i expected so i am giving 3 star because sound quality is really important for a headphone.If sony work on this product sound quality it will be perfect wireless headphone.

These headphones are pretty good when they work, both quality and range. But unless you use them daily, you absolutely cannot rely on the rechargeable battery. If you use the headphones at exactly the moment a recharge is complete, it will work fine. But if you have not used them for several days, but left the headphones in the cradle (supposedly to recharge as needed), they will NOT continuously recharge. In fact, they will almost always be dead. Not a very good design. I have many Sony devices with rechargeable batteries that never lose a charge until the battery gets old (my wireless phone and my rechargeable universal remote control). But this Sony item seems to have missed that design session.

It was a little disturbing that a great company like SONY would manufacture such a low quality device. Lacking of bass, and higer frequency details are the least I have to mention. It makes my ear hurt. After a long time using this earphone, I feel dizzy! I live in an metropolitan arpartment building, where radio signal interferences are common. I sometimes pickup neighbors' wireless phone conversations while other times receive annoying white noises. For the money, it's not that bad. At least it gives me freedom to walk around without wires. I think I'll buy a higher end one.
