Sony MDR-HW300K Wireless Digital Headphones : Excellent sound but wireless range could be better

These headphones took the place of a pair of bluetooth headphones that kept dropping its connection. These wireless sony headphones have proved to be one of my best buys. The signal has not been interrupted ever, they are perfect.

Nice controls and cables/accessories. Can cut out briefly when moving from room to room.

Sony MDR-HW300K Wireless Digital Headphones

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Home headphones with uncompressed RF digital wireless transmission, USB charging, 10hr battery life
  • 40mm neodymium drivers
  • 10–22,000Hz frequency range
  • Up to 30m signal reception range

The sound is ok (my sony tv without headphones is actually better), but essentially you can only use it in close proximity, and directly facing, the extra transmitter. As soon as i start walking around, or even have a wall (but open doors) between the headphones and the transmitter, the signal is heavily interrupted (and i am speaking of one room over, or more than 6m away).

This item works, the volume rocker is a bit fiddly (could be bigger) the sounds through the headphone are remote from the sounds from either side of the t. And i am three meters away with the sounds direct in my ear, the difference in distance. At least i can make out most of the verbal’s from the mumbling actors and the pathetic speakers on most t. This is wireless and not blu-ray.

Excellent headphones with the ability to go wireless or wired. They are light enough for use on an mp3 player while walking. The closed cup cuts out external noise very well (sometimes too well). The only reason i have not given 5 stars is that i find the wireless to be shorter range than claimed, or maybe it is interference from all the other stuff i have on the standard wifi 2. I lose the signal intermittently moving from lounge to kitchen a distance of 4 metres at most with one solid wall in between. For me this is not too much of a problem since i tend to listen to everything seated at a desk but it would be nice to get up and make a cup of coffee without the intermittent loss of signal.

Sony MDR-HW300K Wireless Digital Headphones : Product arrived on time and as expected; would use this seller again. Bought as a gift and recipient very happy with headphones.

Good sound quality, but very limited range, the old sony wireless headphones i had, which still worked, but were wearing thin, i could keep on and wander all over the house and still get unbroken sound, even upstairs, but these, the sound starts to break up just n the next room, with the door open.
