Thomson WHP3001BK Radio UHF Wireless Headphones – : Decent headphones for a decent price!

Did so much research to find some headphones and ended up with these after reading the reviews. I have noisy neighbours so wanted these to get some peace while watching tv. Some on here say they are fiddly to put in the docking area or to get the batteries out. I can only think those people must have huge fingers, as it’s very easy :o)get them out the box and plug them into the tv and off you go. I’ve dropped one star as they do feel a bit light and i can still hear the elephants, that are my neighbours, upstairs a bit but the headphones have a decent sound quality and are a good price.

A very reasonably priced wireless headphone set. . Have so far used it for television and personal cd. . In order to enjoy the more comfortable enclosed over ear type of phones. The clarity and sound quality are far superior to the typical in-ear or ‘resting on the ear’ type of phonesthe stereo separation and inclusion of musical notes previously unheard is quite noticeable. As well as the more effective blocking of extraneous background noise. . Set-up was straightforward. . An initial directional interference settled down quickly and allowed sound to be transmitted throughout a typical house which was quite unexpected. . One proviso after 2 weeks use was the lh headband-earpiece joint broke after less than rough usage. This is an unfortunate weakness in the design of an otherwise excellent product. £3 extra there is the more robust model in the range which should not suffer the same fate.

I read the many reviews on these after buying them and thought i’d made a mistake in ordering them. People talk about the constant static hiss. Which is present, but is only audible during moments of silence. If you are listening to anything you really have to focus to hear it. These are rf headphones, so consider where you place the base unit. I used a longer audio cable to connect to my pc and put the base unit on a shelf at about head height when seated at the pc. I very occasionally get a little static (maybe a seconds worth) but its not frequent, loud or annoying enough to bother me. The range on these is spectacular. My pc is in my office on the first floor at the front of my house. I can leave the pc, go down stairs, through the living room and kitchen and be 5m outside the house before it starts break up.

Sound is great but be very careful with using these headphones. My wife was using the headphones and called me into the room – the headphones had snapped. We could not understand how this had happened. So, because i was impressed with the sound and put the breakage down to perhaps having dropped them, i reordered the same item and did not bother to contact the company as we thought that it was our fault. However, i had taped up the old ones while waiting for the new purchase. I had just completed charging them and handed them to my wife who proceeded to put them on – only to hear a loud snap and the other side of the headphones were now broken as well. So, we worked out that my wife had fallen asleep while still wearing the headphones and she had turned in her sleep and they snapped. I watched my wife putting on the headphones with the second breakage, so i know for sure that no undue pressure was placed on them but they still snapped at the weakest point. Looking at these headphones, it is clearly a design fault because when you extend them to the fullest you can see very obviously where they will break with the slightest of pressures. So, great sound but be extremely careful with how you use them.

I am happy with headphones, they arrived fast and price is great considering that there are not too many models without bluetooth option on the market. After i charged them for 24h and turned them on i noticed quite noisy hissing sound and i was actually decided to return them. I noticed in review section that there are quite a few people complaining about it. Then i re-read once more instruction which says that volume on tv should be turned higher and volume on headphones lower. Mine is at the moment at 3/4 and at 1/2 respectively and that seems to eliminate that hissing noise and sound is pretty clear now. Opening the cover in order to insert batteries is also a bit of challenge.

I first bought this set of head phone ear phones for my husband; we found them very easy tp use and helpful with two people requiring different sound levels for the tv. When he passed away these head phones really came into use. I wander from room to room listening to classic fm and when i cant sleep have no hesitation watching netflix in those long nights when sleep evades me knowing that i am not disturbing my neighbours. Bought the first set 5 years ago and have just bought a replacement. They arrived promptly so i did not miss out in my ‘out of hours’ viewing.

I bought these so i could still watch tv without disturbing my hubby when we’re on differing schedules and they have proved a good investment, allowing me to watch my shows at a comfortable volume rather than trying to find a happy medium where i can still hear but he isn’t disturbed (trust me, no such happy medium exists when the one trying to sleep has better hearing than a bat and the one trying to watch most definitely does not)the headphones come in a nice box and are themselves nicely put together. The earpieces and headband are well padded, the headband adjustable and the overall appearance one of good quality. The base unit isn’t overly large or bulky and provides a nice stand for the headphones themselves. Unlike some reviewers i had no trouble seating the headphones back on the base after use. Physical setup was very simple and tuning the headphones in took just the click of a button. As per other reviews i have found the sound quality best by limiting the volume on the headphones and turning the tv up instead. This seems to minimise any hissing. Generally the sound quality is good – better than my tv speakers – although i would say these are most suited to tv watching. There are better headphones out there for enjoying music and i wouldn’t use these headphones for that purpose. I have tried wandering about the room and ‘hiding’ from the base unit but have yet to make the signal cut out unless i go into a completely different room, which is a vast improvement on the old infrared headphones i had years ago.

I like to listen to music whilst gardening, with my ipod in a shirt pocket, but the in ear phones and leads to my ipod were always getting in the way, so i went on the hunt for something wireless that would do the job. After a bit of research and ‘googling’ i came up with these thompson phones on amazon. Ididn’t see any other reviews for their use in this way, but at £27 it was worth a try. Unpacked the phones, put them in the charger, and left them for 24 hours to charge. I had none of the problems other reviewers mentioned about prising off the headphone ear piece to fit the two batteries. Once charged, i connected the red/white audio leads from the base station to the earphone socket on my ipod (classic) – switched to channel one on the base station, hey presto, music flowed from the phones. Walked up and down the garden, in and out of the house, no problems at all. Only issue was that i had to hike up the volume to maximum on both the phones and the ipod to get it as i like it.
