I’m hard-of-hearing (in fact, i’m now deaf in one ear). I like to watch american tv series (netflix, nowtv, etc). If i am watching material on bbc iplayer (or amazon), i have the subtitles running. But netflix and nowtv aren’t so generous in providing subtitles (via my large lg tv). So it can be difficult following american dialogue, especially in the kind of (pulp) material i watchmoreover, i live in a small flat with neighbours close by. These headphones answer my problems. I can have the sound up loud. . And i can now (generally) follow the dialogue. The sound quality is pretty convincing (but please bear in mind that my hearing quality is not as razor sharp as it used to be). The build quality is substantial – they are quite a size, but easy to wear for long periods.
Spent 3 hours of my life trying to get them to work. Simply had no volume the pairing worked, easy, the headset told me it was on. I did try the headset direct to the tv this was fine, sending this back in the morning and i will try a replacement, will keep you posted. As i said i would give you an update, i received a second item in the post today, well i could not get the base unit to work again.But this time the headset did pair to my tv and the sound is excellent, just had to alter the lip syncing, strange the base unit paired to the headset but had no sound and i turned off all bluetooth items in the house. As a side i tried to register on the web, i could not as the tv headset identification is not there, i contacted noontec, they were quite quick in their reply and will be putting the data base right soon, and they did my registration for me and gave me their standard 18 months guarantee for doing it by email. So after all that i will now give them a 4 star rating.

The way the hammo headphones was boxed is brilliant, nice & neatly packaged up, they were easily set up from the instructions, the sound quality from them is absolutely amazing, the crystal clear quality from each ear is fantastic, the comfort on each ear from the sponge cushion is amazing when wearing is really a bonus as from other headphones they hurt your ears after a while, but not these i could wear these for hours no matter what i was watching, i tested through a variation of tv programmes & films especially films that i’ve watched before and found that i heard quite a few things that i missed during watching previously, the battery life in the headphones is amazing too. I would definitely recommend these headphones to anyone for watching tv/films even music they have been the best so far i’ve seen and used,.
I have had these for 2 weeks now and i am impressed with the build quality of the headset and base. It was also well packaged with good quality materials. I bought these for my father as he had the tv volume above 30 which was very uncomfortable for everyone else in the room. After the initial i will never use them routine, he now wears them most of the time when watching tv allowing the rest of the family to have a conversation at normal volume. When i tested them i thought the volume would go up higher than it does however my father says he can hear the tv fine. Also i could not get them to work on the tv rca sockets on two different tv’s (have’nt been on to support yet) when i plugged them into the rca sockets (red & white) on the sky box it worked striaght away. So far the battery life is excellent i would say the stand could do with being an inch higher to avoid the charging jack touching the stand/table top when on charge. The buttons on the back of the headset for volume and on/off button could do with being a little bigger for the older people as its a bit fiddley. Overall these are excellent headphones and i would recommend spending the extra money on these for the build and quality.
These head phones are fantastic. The sound is out of this world. Even when i had a problem with them,(the head band cracked ),the after care service was excellent. Thankyou gina for all your help.
Best pair i have owned, bought these to replace a pair of sennheisers which only lasted 7 weeks. Apart from a couple of improvements i would like to see( charging on cradle without a cable for one) i would have given 5 stars, excellent crisp crackle free sound, finally 😀.
These headphones arrived very quickly, were beautifully packaged and very easy to set up. Very impressed to get an email from noontec this morning to ask if everything was ok. I had a small query about registering the product which they answered by return.
If you want expensive headphones with annoyingly bad design faults then these are the ones for you. Mine came with a uk powersupply which didn’t work so i bought a replacement from tesco for £9. When i finally got it working i discovered that you have to press the volume button 8 to 10 times to get the sound level you want. You can not simply hold it down. If you turn the headphones off, or if you go out of range then the volume setting is forgotten and has to be re-set. This largely defeats the objective of wireless headphones. Since writing the above noontec have re-written their products software and sent me a replacement for the original. This has resolved the volume problem.
I got these headphones because my mother has severe hearing loss but hates wearing her hearing aid when at home. This mean the tv has to be put on very high volumes in order for her to hear it. This is very uncomfortable for anyone else in the room. Now she can hear it fine with her own personal headphones at a volume that suits her. Once more she can enjoy the tv without upsetting anyone else. You get a pair of cordless headphones with a power button and a volume rocker. You get a stand that you place near the tv so that an audio lead can be plugged into the tv. There are two audio leads supplied. 5mm jack plug and the other has 2 phono plugs. The other end of either lead is then plugged into the base stand. You then need to plug in a usb power lead which is supplied. You get a usb power adapter for this, in fact i got two, one for european power socket and one for the uk. Now press the button on the base of the stand to turn it on and a little led lights up to confirm.
Excellent service from noontec. Headphones are also excellent voice to lips synchronisation first class. Easy to pair with the tv and the charging cradle is minimalist and takes up little room fits on the tv stand.
Just listened to john williams at the proms on tv with these headphones. Absolutely delighted with my purchase.
I am very surprised and fascinated by these wireless hammo tv headphones. They sure count to one of the better headphones i’ve had on my head so far. While the audio performance is not truly excellent, you can’t expect all too much at that price point. After all, these, basically, are bluetooth headphones, that can easily connect with standard smartphones, tablets and other devices as well as with the included headphone docking station noontec includes. The docking station makes connecting to non-bluetooth devices such as tvs possible. I, for one, really liked seeing so much stuff included — all connection cables and adapters for all kinds of scenarios for your tv setups. The setup in general is fairly easy and straightforward. The audio performance is really good and comfort-wise, no complaints either. Battery life is good too, and a nice bonus is the option to fold the headphones for easier, more convenient transportation when on the go. In my opinion, so far, one of the best wireless audio solution out there that covers a wide spectrum of possible scenarios.
From the first use, i noticed an annoying problem. The headphones kept cutting out during use, despite being fully charged and paired. During speech, when there is a lull in speech, the headphones cut out completely, so i couldn’t hear even the soundtrack or background noises. The ‘instruction manual’ is single column of how to switch on and pair them with the tv and the troubleshooting guide mentions nothing more than failure to pair. Having been in contact with noontec over this, i am delighted to be able to report that the problem has now been explained and a solution found. Basically, you have to keep the tv volume above 25% and use the headphone volume control to avoid this happening. Customer service is excellent and i wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this company’s products.
I have not long used these headphones, and here are my thoughts so far:normally advertising is lies, however, i am impressed by how long i have been listening on just one charge. A couple of films (via headphones so as not to disturb others) and yesterday i was out in my garden for over 4 hours, all the while listening to the radio (via ipad app) on almost full volume (i’m a little hard of hearing). You can see that the headphones aren’t uncomfortable for me. On full extension over the top of my big head, both my equally big ears just fit inside the ring-cushions. The encapsulating over-ear style and slight wriggle-ability of the ear cups mean they lie close on the sides of my head, dampening all outside noises. I have to remember not to touch the back of the ear pieces when lifting or adjusting them because that’s where the buttons are (on the left one). I have inadvertently switched them off more than once so far. Sound is very nice, though heavy bass struggles on full volume, which is also not very high. Good job i like classical music. :)i have connected the headphones, in turn, with the included bluetooth transmitter, my android phone and ipad without problems.
A very handy headset if it’s only you listening to tv in a room with others who don’t share your programming choice. First off though i was impressed with the presentation, it’s all nicely designed and packaged in matt black. Open the box and everything is provided, rca and other cables, a uk and continental plug, both with usb ports for charging the headset and a wire frame to hang them on or use the cloth storage bag. Set-up was straight forward, i used the headphone-out socket on our sony tv rather than the rca cables. The sound quality, for me, was fine and fortunately the bass isn’t by any means excessive (which it might have been if headset was primarily designed for listening to music rather than tv programming) and the battery life exceeded my expectations. The two cups have enough movement on them not to feel uncomfortable after several hours wear. My only negative is that the ear-cups are not as comfortable as the sennheiser hd280 set i’ve been using for years, these completely cover the ears but off course were connected to the tv with a very long, expandable curly cable. Now, with this noontec set i can move around and get a beer from the fridge without missing any audio.
Arrived on time ,they are great, i only sleep 4 to 5 hours a day ( all my life ) so when i get up at night i don my ear phones and no one in the house are disturb. They work well for tv, ipad, and my music. Had to have them adapted for tv as their was no outer only through the sound box. Samsung should look at this problem.
