I used RCA audio outputs from a television, but it had an adapter for optical audio output as well.

Granted, the Sennheiser TV Listening device is not cheap. Neither is an Acura, BMW or Mercedes. You won't get quality in a $19 listening device. The packaging of this unit is truly incredible. Even the little plastic bags are unique in opening each containing all the extra cords. The instructions come with a quick start card and a complete technical manual in several languages. The quick start card is terrific(who has time to read a 40+ page regular manual). Everything (and I mean everything) has been considered for hooking up the unit which depends upon the type of TV you have in your home. Several difference connection configurations are illustrated on the quick start card. They are easily understood especially since I know nothing about electronics. Each supplied power cord is labeled in addition to a pic and how it looks all right on the quick start card. Remember, there are two different model units when you place the initial order. I ordered the radio frequency model (RF) as opposed to the infra-red (IR) model because the IR model requires a direct line of sight communication with the headset whereas the RF goes thru walls. In other words, you can walk around with the RF headset anywhere and the sound is perfect. The IR model cannot be placed behind the TV as the TV obstructs the line of sight for the infra-red to communicate.....with the radio frequency model(RF)it's not a problem. Place the base trasnmitter behind the TV and it operates just fine.
In a few words: Sennheiser is a company which is user friendly offering a First Class product at a reasonable price considering the quality of the unit. I did have one question, called the company directly and got an instant accurate answer. Believe me...You won't go wrong with this product.

I was turning the TV up so loud the dogs were leaving the room -- and yet I was still missing some dialogue. So I finally decided to bite the bullet, and after much research, picked this (expensive) set-up.

The pros:
- Crystal clear audio - I'd honestly forgotten what it's like not to strain to hear dialogue.
- Some ability to fine tune for best speech reception -- if I miss something now, it's because the TV show's audio engineering is bad or the actors are mumbling.
- There is absolutely no delay between the TV and the receiver, so no problem of lips and words being out of kilter.
- Easy volume adjustment (but no mute)
- Does not need to be direct line of sight or hold your head 'just so' for reception.
- Has an external mic component (in case you can't connect to the TV) that I imagine could be used just fine with radio or other non-TV sources.

The cons:
- Ergonomics are a big fail. Only an engineer would think hanging the receiver module from your ears is a good idea. 2.5 ounces doesn't sound like much, but hang an i-pod from each ear and see how long you want to listen.
- In that vein, the ear-buds are hard and uncomfortable, apparently a Sennheiser trademark, btw - but after all, they're primarily designed not to fall out of your ears when hanging, not for your comfort. They do NOT get more comfortable as they adapt to your ears (as the booklet says) -- your ears sort of learn to tolerate them.
- Connecting the transmitter didn't work directly from the TV in either of the ways they described - just lots of feedback hum. After much frustration I finally had to hook it through my satellite receiver, a possibility they don't even mention in the rather minimalist instruction booklet.

Greetings,

My mother's TV Ears brand TV listening system kept suffering from broken earphones. I got fed up repairing them, or purchasing replacement headphones when I knew they just would not last.

I ordered the Sennheiser Set 840 and its sound quality and construction quality just blow TV Ears out of the water! The reception is crystal clear. Even when walking into other rooms.

With Sennheiser's long experience in selling high-end hi-fi headphones, I was justified paying the extra cost for the model 840. They are worth every penny.

Installation took less than two minutes. And we like the 4 sound (treble) settings for extra clarity during voice broadcast. They are also superior for musical programs.

First class equipment all round.

--------------

Addendum

It has been two months since purchasing the Sennheisers for my hard-of-hearing mother. She raves to everyone how nice they sound and how much clearer her music shows are now compared to her previous TV-Ears system.

The Sennheiser will also save money by not falling apart like the TV-Ears did. I was replacing or fixing broken ear phones every three or four months. The extra large volume control is also a nice feature. This was a good investment.

--------------

2014 update

This proved so popular with a few of my mother's hard of hearing guests that I had to order a second headset. Now she and her sister can both enjoy music programs together when she visits for the evening. The base unit has only one slot for recharging the headphones, but they recharge so quickly it isn't any trouble keeping two units up-to-snuff and ready for use.
