Panasonic RP-WF950E-S Headphone : Nice headset.

I bought these quite some years ago and am doing this as i replaced them with sennheiser rs170 headphonesthese panasonics are much better in a couple of areasfirst is distance away from the transmittersecond is control over volume (its a wheel) and all controls built into the headset are easily identified when wearing (the rs170 are all grouped together and awful to use)third is the surround sound seems better than the rs170so that’s the good out of the wayso what is bad about thesefirst the batteries are £10 a set to replace (you can use other branded batteries in them but not charge in the headset because the originals must have a chip in them that the transmitter/charger identifies and starts the charging process) but if you don’t mind recharging using a standard wall charger then cheaper batteries will work. Second is the headband its is not very good becomes flimsy and if wearing headset when busy they can move about quite a bit. Third is the bass is a little softwould i recommend themyes.

There are varying reviews of this item. Some positive some negative. After all,we are all different when it comes to headphones. But i can only assume that: 1)there are some faulty models around. 2) people are not setting them up correctly: 3) people just have different tastes. Totally excellent sound with no distortion on the “s” sound of words. My old cordless were dreadful for this. A lot of people appear to connect to the phono sockets of tv or dvd with the (supplied) mini cable. But you may get some buzzing.

This is my thrid set of these headphones. Because the earpiece covering was breaking up and i had problems with the earphone jack going into my tv, i ordered these – the cheapest i could find. I think they are being discontinued. I was surprised to find these phones had a european two pin plug, which is quite long and flimsy. I had to use an adaptor to 3 pin gb plug, but this meant that overall the plug arrangement sticks out about 10cm and is awkward and unsatisfactory. However, because these were cheaper than others, i am using them. The headphones are quite tight and could be uncomfortable on ‘wide’ heads. The sound is great the range is excellent – reaching all over the house and about 20 mtrs down the garden. The base charging unit sites behind my tv and takes a while to charge the headset. I put the headphone jack into the tv (or radio where i now have my old set) when i want to listen through the phones, taking it out of the tv when finished.

No grumbles or doubts with these phones. Very comfortable to wear and the sound is well balanced, not too ‘bassy’ and generally suitable for all musical listening. I feel i made a good choice.

Liked good sound and listening to broadcasts all round the house and garden . Brings the tv sound right next to you. Avoids annoyiny others because only you can hear it. . I am 82 yo with age related loss of hearing and these phones let you stay connected. I am on my second pair of phones, sat on the first set and broke the bridge. Didnt like the two pin power plug meant for asia rather than europe and the fit to the recharging base on this set.
