Ready to start setting up

Do you find watching TV or listening to music becomes less enjoyable if hearing loss is starting to happen? If other members of the family can hear perfectly well and don't need the sound as loud, it can be very frustrating! Don't despair, these headphones could be just the item to help!

I opened the box which includes:-

Headphones with built-in Li-Polymer rechargeable battery

Docking station

1 pair of ear pads for small ears

Power supply with national adapters for EU, UK, US and AUS

TV Optical cable for digital audio out

TV Connection cable 3.5 mm for headphone audio out

Instruction manual

The set up was very easy and the guide included is straightforward and explanatory.

Once the three hour battery charge had completed, I was ready to try out the headphones.  The buttons are ideal for anyone with hand dexterity problems as they are easy to use and clearly marked.

Let me quote a passage from the Sennheiser website. "As we age, our ears need some assistance in order to pick up speech effortlessly or enjoy music to the full. This is not only a matter of overall volume but also of processing the audio signal as a whole. So, just turning the TV louder is no solution, apart from the fact that it disturbs the people around us. Enter the Sennheiser Set 880: It lets you personalize your listening experience according to your needs, without affecting your environment. The Set 880 can be connected to two audio sources at once, so you don’t have to unplug and plug in just to switch between TV and radio, for example. Rediscover the joys of listening to your home audio equipment."

With 5 preset hearing profiles, one is guaranteed to be right for your own personal use. There is also a unique feature called the Speech Intelligibility function: This reduces TV background noise for you to follow spoken dialogue effortlessly.

The Sennheiser Set 880 is so lightweight, the under-the-chin headset applies no pressure to the head and adjusts automatically as you put it on. No need to worry about your hairstyle or if you wear glasses! As the headphones are wireless, there is a range of up to 70 m (200 ft). So, you can go to the kitchen to get a drink whilst still listening to your radio or CD player. There is no need to worry about the battery either as there up to 18 hours from a single charge. It recharges automatically as soon as you put the headset on the docking station.

The Set 880 even switches on and off automatically, so its battery will not run flat accidentally. There is a video on the Sennheiser website which you may like to watch before purchasing. 

The price for the Set 880 is £269.99 which includes VAT and free delivery. There is also a 2 year guarantee. I can definitely recommend these wireless headphones and if it means TV and audio becomes more enjoyable, they are well worth the money.

I am delighted to let members know that Sennheiser are donating a pair of these EXCELLENT headphones as a raffle prize! Details will appear on the website soon. Many thanks for this fabulous prize.
