5.0 out of 5 stars Easy set up, great sound!, April 24, 2011
This review is from: RCA WHP141B 900MHZ Wireless Stereo Headphones (Electronics)
My wife and I recently had a baby, so I needed something to keep the noise down at night, but still enjoy my TV/Netflix/PS3. Plus, I didn't want to spend much more than $50. I did a ton of research on all the wireless headphones on Amazon that fit my $50 or less bill and settled for these RCA headphones. I couldn't be happier.

Set up was very easy. Plugged base into outlet, added the included rechargeable batteries to headphones, plugged headphones into base and waited 24 hours for batteries to charge. My HDTV does not have a headphone jack, but it does have Audio Outputs. I bought the RiteAV-3.5mm to RCA Stero Male Cable sold on Amazon currently for $2.66, plugged it into the Audio Outputs and into the headphone base.

After 24 hours I turned the hedphones on and wow--the sound was great!!! I know you could spend more money and probably get an even fuller sound, but I was shocked at all the new sounds I was hearing from the Netflix movie I was watching. Footsteps on gravel roads, rustling of leather coats, background conversations...these would have all been lost had I simply had the TV volume on. And I barely had the volume on the headphones turned up.

I did notice a bit of static when I wondered more than 40 or so feet away from the TV, but whenever I was in my living room or nearby kitchen it was perfect. Today I'm going to see if I can step outside into my yard and still receive a decent signal.

I have a question, I need two headphones. One for myself and one for my wife. Do I have to purchase a second set or can I just get the headphone separately without the transmitter? I assume one transmitter will be enough for 2 headphones?

I just ordered one of these and your review helped me decide on them as I was more interested in the newest reviews. They seem to be more reliable for some reason. I also wanted to add, many happy congratulations on your new baby! There's just nothing else on earth that adds more joy to life than a new little one :) I hope these headphones work as well for me as they have for you! Thanks again!
