Sony MDRRF811RK : Could be great Headphones

I had to give them to my friends motor mechanic son to undo them to insert the battery – ridiculous. For that reason and that reason only i would not recommend unless you have strong hands — that said now they are in use and very good, and very comfortable.

Use these with my guitar and aging effects processor (bluetooth is useless because of the lag), they hiss a bit but given the alternatives (divorce) this is probably the best option.

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Wireless home headphones with 40mm drivers, up to 100m reception range, and self-adjusting headband, use with TV only.
  • 40mm neodymium drivers
  • 20-20,000Hz frequency range
  • Up to 100m signal reception range

Did not think there would be so many wires with these but for the price i should of known, you have to keep ariel part away from anything electrical as you get hissing if not so not ideal near computer as i bought for.

Got these to replace ones i have used for a few years i am happy with them.

So handy when on the move at home and in the garden.

Sony MDRRF811RK.CEK RF811 Home Wireless On-Ear Headphones for TV, 100 m Range – Black : Brilliant buy, so easy to set up to the tv, my husband can now hear all that’s being said during a programme and not keep having to ask me ‘what did they say?’.

Item delivered promptly and well protected. Comfortable to wear and sound reproduction acceptable. The volume control on the headphones does not come readily to hand and would be better if it was raised above the general surface of the headphone, it is easy to change the channel control by mistake as the two are close together.

Brilliant product, no tuning required, worked straight out of the box, the batteries last days with quite heavy use, very comfortable with a good sound.

Perfect, just what we needed for the both of us, me to sleep and him to watch tv in bed.

Good quality headphones for the price, not too much fuzz in the background. Stay on your head really well and i like to dance.

Works well in the house and out in the garden.

Brilliant reception – i can hear the tv at the bottom of the garden around 40 metres away and i can go to the front garden (the tv is in the garage) and still hear the tv – exactly what i wanted, they are a bit bulky but i didn’t buy them for style.

Excellent product & service (delivery late).

Bought it so my mum could listen to the elly without deafening anyone else in the room. They work well, easy to use, sound quality seems great – good enough for tv use anyway. The battery cover seems a little prone to coming off – other than that a great purchase.

Had these for quite a while now and to say they are brilliant is an understatement, wife is hard of hearing and these are a godsend to her.

Requires a little assembly to fit the battery pack, not for clumsy fingers. Otherwise ideal for listening to the tv without deafening others. 5mm jack input and charges off the base station so only one plug.

. Who is deaf as a post and uses them when watching telly. They’re average really, but if you’re not too critical.

Quality is ok, not great – often get interference and with only two channels its hard to find a decent line.

These are not completely comfortable but the sound, oh the sound, that is really excellent and when you use them on tv magnificent.

Replaced my old set which had started to buzz. Can now watch telly with clear sound.

Earphones are comfortable, connects to the tv with no problem but there is significant background noise.

Bought for my mother who is hard of hearing and she has the tv extremely loud. This stops the issue she can have it as loud as she wants. There have been a few issues with the frequency not being great and having to adjust it a few times. Mother does complain that if she moves her head around too much there is a loss of sound and interference.

    My only complaint is the time it took me to put the batteries in. I nearly busted open the headphones trying to get the rechargeable batteries in.

    This review is my own private opinion of the sony mdrrf811 home wireless headphone. This model is replacing my rf800 which unfortunately failed. They are just as comfortable as the rf800. But i have one major problem with them i can’t get the battery into the left hand headphone no matter how i try to open the battery compartment it refuses to open. So i will have to think how to open it another way or return the headphones. This is the only reason for the 3 stars.

    Husband is very happy with it and so am i as i can work from home when he wants to listen to music or watch tv. The wireless set-up was easy and immediately successful. The noise cancelling is not outstanding if i sit next to him but we are both happy with the purchase.

    I use these to listen to music at work and for that purpose they are sufficient and comfortable. I would give them a higher rating, but for 2 problems (both with workarounds):-there is a bug where the battery won’t charge unless i remove it and re-insert it while the headphones are docked-being rf analog signal between the base and the headset, there can be noise heard; this effect can be attenuated by cranking the volume to maximum on the computer (or other music device) and reducing the volume on the headset itself.

      Need for tv as hearing not great and sound disturbs my husband when he is asleep. Headphones work brilliantly.

    The headphone arrived in good time and has been using it since. Clear sound and large cups for the ears. Only drawback is short charging cable and no holder, a minor issue.

    I had previously borrowed the original model rf800 from my daughter to try out and being reasonably satisfied with that i ordered the latest version, the rf811. This was promptly delivered and set up in a matter of minutes. I found it an improvement on the original – the earpieces are more comfortable and \\i can wear the headset for a full hour plus without any irritation. The sound quality seems better and there is no background hum which was noticeable in the original model (it helps to turn the set volume up fairly high and keep the sound volume setting on the headphones low). As i am getting quite deaf as the years pass (now aged 75) it has been a pleasure to be able to listen to music and singing more clearly, as well as to watch old movies that don’t have subtitles and actually be able to hear the dialogue without deafening the neighbours. And it is useful on some sub-titled programmes to be able to turn the titles off so that they don’t obscure parts of the display, yet still hear what is being said. Note that with this model, when you plug the transmitter into the tv it kills the tv sound. Overall, i am well satisfied with this headset.

        Great sound & build quality by sony. Ensure you have plugged in the power adapter into the unit, otherwise it won’t work. Bought mine second hand on amazon for £27 it was like brand new. Well worth the money £80 original price.

    They block out really loud music from my neighbour, and are comfortable to wear also. I would not hesitate to purchase them in the future.
