You can even walk around, without having a cord limit your travels. These headphones offer a powerful 150-ft. transmission range that works virtually everywhere in your home and outside in your backyard — perfect for rocking out while you fix the car, organize the closet or skim the pool.

  • More Info

    With automatic tuning and a noise reduction transmission system, the headphones offer crisp, clear transmission over one of three 900MHz wireless channels for optimum signal reception. They're also incredibly convenient, thanks to the built-in Nickel-Metal Hydride battery that automatically charges when the headphones are kept in the included charging cradle. And because the headphones automatically power on when placed on your head, and off when removed, you won't have to worry about draining the battery. Altogether you'll be able to enjoy up to 14 hours (up to 22 hours on alkaline AAA batteries) of continuous use per charge.

    The headphones are constructed with 40mm drivers — larger than most other portable headphones for lower distortion, wider dynamic range and deeper bass down to 10Hz. PET diaphragms ensure high rigidity for minimum distortion and low mass for excellent high-frequency response, while ferrite magnets combine high energy and small size for ample sound output.

    Built with a double headband, with a self-adjusting mechanism that conforms to the curve of your head, these headphones are extremely comfortable, and remain that way, even during extended listening sessions. They weigh a scant 10.6 ounces (300g), and that's including the battery. They also feature a rotary-type volume control for easy, convenient adjustment. The transmitter base measures 8 5/8" x 4 1/4" x 3 7/8" (216 x 105 x 96cm) and weighs 7 3/4 ounces (220g). System includes headphones, transmitter base, a 3-ft. connecting cord that connects to the stereo or TV, a UniMatch® plug adapter and AC power supply.

    All is good except for the ordering. There was some confusion about you requiring that the product needed the be shipped to the billing address. That is difficult for Snowbirds unless they have credit cards at there winter address.

    It just works, what else can I say. I have kiddy pies doing homework who routinely destroy the wired headphones because they are constantly in motion while doing there homework on the computer.
    DONALD A -- vancouver, WA   7/8/2011
    These headphones live up to the Sony reputaion for they give plenty of volume, clear sound and the battery saving feature ensures plenty of reserve power for extended use. And, Smarthome offers them at a competitive price.
    Don -- vancouver, Wa   6/11/2011
    We obtained two sets and found them to be of very good sound with plenty of reserve volume. They work very well throughout our home.
    Shopper -- San Diego   2/21/2011

    VALERIE ANNE -- port angeles, WA   1/19/2009
    earphones click and pop frequently. Sometimes they quit altogether for about 30 secs. Going upstairs with them on is out of the question.
