4.0 out of 5 stars Using the headphones correctly, and they do work well, August 14, 2008
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: RCA WHP141B 900MHZ Wireless Stereo Headphones (Electronics)
In reading the reviews, I'm thinking some people do not understand how to use them correctly. When I set mine up, you have to have the sound input set very high. This will cut down on the hiss you hear considerably. Also, there is a power saving feature that will cut off the connection when no sound is being inputted into the base station. This is by design, and takes a little getting used to. Once I understood all this, I discovered they work really well.
The only thing I do not like is when the unit is in power save mode, and the headphones are on, you will hear a pop type hiss every so often. This is caused by the units attempting to make a connection though the base is in power saving mode. No biggy, but it is something that could have been better engineered. I have a different brand of wireless headphones that do not do this, but they do not have the power save feature.

Thank you for clarifying this. I was ready to send them back until I cranked up the volume on my laptop and turned down the volume on the headphones. Now the static is all but gone.

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?
