Sony MDR DS4000 Wireless Home Theatre Headphones
Looking for a way to watch your favorite TV program or movie without interrupting family members and friends in the same room? Want to be with the people you love but do different things at the same time? These Sony wireless home theatre headphones are just the thing you are looking for. Designers have not compromised the quality of the sound and thus performance, for better design, as it is the common case. They have come up with a great design without compromising its performance.
These digital wireless headphones for TV provide clear and crackle free sounds allowing you to enjoy watching TV, preventing distraction from the sound effects in the movie or drama you are watching. This ensures a heightened sound experience for all viewers who purchase this pair of wireless headphones.
The MDR DS4000 uses digital infrared-light technology to transmit sound from the base station/battery charger to the headphones and has a frequency response between 10 Hz and 22000 Hz.
Our prime gripe with wireless headphones in general is that their electronics add background crackle, static, or random bursts of distortion to the sound. However, this set of wireless headphones for TV provides state-of-the-art sound and are free of noise and hiss. Although these headphones possess a very impressive sound quality they cannot compete with the bass and loud response of better, corded headphones. However these Sony wireless headphones are arguably the quietest and best-sounding wireless headphones available.
The headphones operate for approximately 7 hrs and 13 hrs on the fully charged NiMH rechargeable battery and Sony alkaline LR03 battery respectively. The base station automatically charges the headphones batteries. Thus, even on the 7 hour battery you can make it through at least two movies in a row without any problems.
The headphones have an effective transmitting range of 7m, but the headphones need to be in line of sight to the base station to maintain connection and there isn’t a digital coaxial input.
Although the sound never drops even if you were to move into the corners of the room, you have to stay in line of sight to the transmitter/charger base. The sound quality is easily the best you will get from a wireless headphone.
Just as all products in the deluxe category these wireless headphones are in the $300+ Price Range but are worth the price as the quality of sound they provide is unprecedented
The headphones weigh 11 ounces or 300g without the cord but including batteries. This is quite light for a full-size, over-the-ear design. Also because of the self-adjusting headband, the vinyl cover cushions exert minimal pressure against your ears. The DS4000s is therefore extremely comfortable to wear while watching DVDs and listening to songs, without interrupting others i.e. your spouse, girlfriend and children who are reading or otherwise engaged and do not wish to be disturbed.
The headphones are equipped with 1 set of composite inputs and 1 optical input. The large 40mm driver unit allows for dynamic sound reproduction.
This wireless headphone for TV has easy control options with left /right for volume control controlling left and right channels simultaneously. It also has the ability to automatically turn on when you place them on your ears and turn off when you remove them, eliminating the necessity for a power switch. This automatic On/Off feature preserves battery life too.
Getting the headphones up and running is also easier than you think. You just have to hook up the base station’s optical digital cable or your own set of stereo analog cables to the matching outputs on your A/V receiver. An AC power adapter is supplied with the headphones.
The headphones will work with any other A/V device with a line-level output (VCR, CD/DVD player, and many TVs), and if you supply a standard mini jack-to-RCA Y-cable you should be able to connect to anything with a standard headphone output, too.
The headphones can function on either two “AAA” rechargeable batteries, or two “AAA” Alkaline batteries. Two “AAA” Rechargeable NiMH Batteries and a 1.5m optical digital connecting cable are supplied with the MDR DS4000.
The headphones are compatible with Dolby and DTS surround. The full digital surround decoder is capable of decoding Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro-Logic II and DTS Signals. This will also allow you to connect any stereo or optical digital output from a CD or DVD player, bypassing your A/V receiver completely.
If you are looking for a pair of wireless headphones with great sound quality this Sony MDR DS4000 might be what you are looking for. So perhaps it is time you made the purchase that is going to change your TV sound experience for the better.
