Sennheiser Silver RS 120 3.5mm/ 6.3mm Connector Supra-aural Wireless RF Hi-fi Headphone
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

3 out of 5 eggs Some good, some ......different 12/28/2013

This review is from: Sennheiser Silver RS 120 3.5mm/ 6.3mm Connector Supra-aural Wireless RF Hi-fi Headphone

Pros: reasonably priced, good sound quality, decent range

Cons: operates on 900mhz, fit is odd (see below), sensitive to position on charger, materials and controls feel cheap, tuning is difficult and easily disturbed so must be repeated often, static hissing when transmitter loses signal

Other Thoughts: If you study some pics of these you'll see that they have a strange shape that causes (IMHO) a poor fit. It's not necessarily uncomfortable but it feels weird. I think the reason for the strange shape is to fit properly on the charger. Specifically, the headband does not follow a straight line between the ear cups but rather is offset. The earcups themselves are not parallel to each other so they do not seal well against the ears. Also, the earcup pivots are not at right angles to the headband like every other headphones I've seen. They just don't feel right. I think this is why some people complain about them falling off. It seems like nobody at the factory ever put them on. I would return them if the sound quality weren't so good. Good wireless is hard to find at any price.

WD TV Live Media Player WDBHG70000NBK-HESN
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs finally some progress 12/26/2013

This review is from: WD TV Live Media Player WDBHG70000NBK-HESN

Pros: Tech support is improving

Cons: Either doesn't perform as advertised or (at least) there are incomplete setup instructions and no mechanism established to get help.

Other Thoughts: KUDOS to WD. They finally stepped up and did something useful to me. The anonymous person I previously mentioned had a "product specialist" call me on the phone and we managed to establish a path toward correcting this for all affected. It's not over yet but the "specialist" was extremely competent and seemed eager to help. I will post resolutions on the WD forum under the same user name.

Sony MDR-RF985RK Wireless RF Headphones - Black
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

1 out of 5 eggs bad lot???? 11/19/2013

This review is from: Sony MDR-RF985RK Wireless RF Headphones - Black

Pros: I'll never know.

Cons: D.O.A. Also, it's obvious that SONY intends for this, and I suspect all their current wireless headsets, to be throw away items when the batteries die. The owner's instructions says to ask your retailer what to do when the batteries die or to take the product to a SONY store. I'm reasonably sure the retailers will also point you toward a SONY store which will undoubtedly charge you more than the headset costs to replace the batteries. The Newegg ad text mentions alkaline batteries as a potential power source. This is completely false. There are no external openings or removable panels. In the specifications list on Newegg it says the batteries are "built in". I believe this is SONY code for "not replaceable by the owner".

Other Thoughts: I've bought two of these locally and both were D.O.A. with the same problem. The chargers on both were non-functional. Maybe the retailer got a bad lot, I don't know but two picked at random, from different stores is no coincidence.
