High Quality Wireless Sound Direct to Your Ears

One of the worst constrictions with headphones is the wire. With the headphones plugged into an audio device the sound is directed to your ears only and not out loud into the room as it would be with speakers, however most cables are only 1-2m in length and do not permit you the freedom of movement you may otherwise possess or desire, forcing you to sit in close proximity to the source.

Wireless technology brings a whole new level to the audio playing field. Thomson WHP3001BK Wireless Headphones are specifically engineered to provide maximum convenience, style and comfort with no subsequent sound deterioration, all in a sleek and compact package.

Transmitted via radio signal from the charging station to the headphones, sound can be transmitted at a frequency of 863MHz to a distance of 100m in open space or 20-30m in buildings, meaning you can move between rooms and still carry the sound with you loud and clear. There is no need to worry about interference with 3 different transmission channels and integrated autotuning (automatic station search) which eliminates any loss of sound or fuzziness as you move around or at distance from the charging station as long as you remain within the maximum range.

Powered by 2 x AAA batteries included in the delivery package, the headphones can be switched on and off via their own power button with LED indicator and rest on the charging station when not in use to recharge, a process which can be monitored easily by the integrated charging function/battery charge indicator. When required they can then be removed from the station and worn for extended periods of up to 8h battery life in maximum comfort thanks to the elastic headband and generously padded ear cushions to ensure that your listening pleasure does not turn into unnecessary ear aches and pains! Life really couldn't be easier with the volume control integrated into the headphones so you can adjust the sound to your individual preference without barely lifting a finger., leaving you to enjoy your music wherever and when ever you want. Bliss!

 Great value for money

Bought these for my grandfather who spends all day sitting in his comfy chair watching TV. Because he is slightly deaf the volume on the TV is always extremely loud, much to the annoyance of everyone else in the house. Tried normal, wired headphones and although the volume problem was resolved, he kept on getting tangled up in the cable (bit like a fly caught in a spiders web!!). Found these wireless headphones on play.com and bingo, problems solved. Sound good and look good, all I have to do now is find a way of gagging the sound that comes out of my grandfathers mouth when he starts singing to the adverts!!!

Easy enough to put together .................indeed thats what got it the 1 star ...........other than that ? Instantly forgettable.

They were awkward to get back onto the charger unit correctly, one of the main points I purchased them in the first place.

They were tight to the side of my head, even after 5 mins or so I knew that they would only get worse ...........even painful.

However, even that I could have put up with, but my God, worse was to come.

Was comparing them to a cheap 5 year old set of wired headphones that they were going to replace. Louder music, such as say Rock or louder Blues would be ok ..............however go quieter and guess what the only thing you could hear was ..............a hissing sound like a leaking gas canister through both ears ...........

Now, I like a very wide range of music, but try listening to Albatross by Fleetwood Mac and it was totally ruined.

I know what I'm doing, I'm a PC engineer by trade and had left the unit to charge in excess of that stated in the manual, but seriously, how can a set of uptodate headphones get COMPLETELY owned by a knackered, falling to bits 5 year old set ?

Don't buy unless you like Hissing Sid movies.

 Real Bargain

I have been looking for a second pair of wireless headphones for some time and when i read the spec and saw the price i thought why not. Bingo was not disappointed you think for the price there would be some drop in performance level but none at all as like all traditional wireless headphones you have the freedom (within reason) to wander from the receiver and still pick up the sound. Great stuff!

 Great value for money headphones!

You can control the volume from the headset - so i can move around the house and into the garden with no drop in sound or quality. My 1st pair of wireless headphones would definitely recommend!

 No sound
