    These are great headphones. The bass and surround is pretty good. They are built well and fit my head well. The fact that they are wireless makes it great to walk around the house with out sound interruption. Pros: Wireless feature and great sound. Cons: The batteries could be better. if you leave the phones off the charger over night they will be drained the next day. The buttons on the side take getting used to. its not obvious by touch which buttons are the volume vs. the surround and bass.

    Tech Support answered:
    You can have up to four headphones listening to the same source.
    Yes, they will work with the TV audio outputs.
    Yes, but Sennheiser recommends you get a full independent system anyway since you will only have one docking station to recharge their batteries and a separate headphone costs almost the same as the full system.
    Q.

    I am considering the purchase of some wireless headphones for my father who (resides in England, UK) is experiencing hearing loss. My concerns are sound suitability for listening to speech and whether the volume on the television can be adjusted independent of the volume for the headphones. I would appreciate any comments you have on these particular issues and the suitability of these or other headphones. Thank you.

    Dear Dipak,
    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Yes, the volume of the TV can be adjusted independent of the headphones; the headphones have their own volume controls and can louder than the actual TV volume.
    Yes, these are suitable for music listening or TV watching.
    Q.

    How does the wireless operate with IPad/IPhone ?
