4-0 out of 5 stars Great headphones for the cost
I've used these headphones for many months and like them a lot. I have an MP3 player that needs a boost, as well as my laptop. These headphones provide that volume increase so I can leave my boostaroo headphone amplifier at home. Noise reduction works when on a plane, near a forced-air fireplace, operating machinery, etc. Battery lasts a long time, headphones work when battery is dead (just no boost/canceling). Comfortable, foldable, has a plane adaptor, carrying bag.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great For Everyday Travelers
When I first purchased these headphone I had my douts. But When I got them, They worked great. Sure they dont compare to the bose headphone but if you want a low price noise canceling headphones go with these ones. Dont worry about what others say these head phones are great. They are also very comfortable and have this adapter to work on airplanes. They also fold up small to take them everywhere. They have been around the world with me, I dont leave them behind. On the plane they block out most the noise to make your long or short flight refreshing and confortable.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not worth it
Incredibly poor treble response. Noise cancellation nearly non-existent. Unfortunately, you get what you pay for. Mine are going back.

3-0 out of 5 stars The truth about sound cancellation
First of all this review aplies to all headphones (over-the-head, on or over your ear headphones) that "actively" cancell noise i.e. w/ electronics. They are only made to reduce certain frequencies, talking isn't among them, however, things like airplane roar, computer noises (hisses and such) and reduced. This aplies even to extremely expensive headphones like the Bose Quiet Comfort (250-299 depending on new or old version) which act the same way. This explanation also helps in figuring out a reason why some people report NO cancelling (probably using them w/ wrong frequencies) why some say they're wonderful, most who say that talk about airplane roar being reduced, the thing their meant to do. I hope this clears up some of the mystery about active noise cancellation headphones

1-0 out of 5 stars A disappointing product
I bought these hoping that they would help me work in a room with a TV playing by listening to music. They were totally ineffective. The noise canceling feature was JUST noticeable i.e. there was a barely detectable difference between ON and OFF. But the frequency response was poor - almost no upper register which made listening to music hardly bearable even with TV off. I returned them for credit, ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars incredible!!!
All but one channel has just as good reception as my digital cable had.I bought the antenna before I had my cable turned off to make sure it was going to be watchable.I could not beleive how clear it was.

1-0 out of 5 stars This product stinks!
I bought this product because I wanted to replace my old [ ] antenna.The [ ] antenna was a pretty good one except that both dipoles had broken off after it was knocked over.Anyways I bought this product at a []. I bought it because I did not want any dipoles to break again.When Ihooked it up to my tv the clarity was horrible! One every station there were at least 20 lines going horizontally across the tv.I tried readjusting the gain control on the back but nothing seemed to work.I ended up returning it.Please don't waste your money!

5-0 out of 5 stars Product works as written
Everything that Jensen promises about this product is true!I was very skeptical of this product working as I had read a lot of bad reviews about this product AFTER I had just ordered it from another online store for about...I already had the Radio Shack ATV1000, and it performed so-so, but probably requires constant adjustment between channels.

My reason for wanting a omni-directional antenna (one that didn't require constant adjustment) is because I own a ReplayTv ShowStopper, a digital video recorder, and I needed it to record shows unattended.

I am very happy with this product.It performs as stated.I live in Sacramento, CA, so your results with this product might vary depending on the distances from your home to any of the local stations.I also make sure to read the directions, not to mount it directly on top of the TV, or place near any large metal objects.I take it a step further by plugging in its power cord to an isolated power strip and make sure the coax cable doesn't touch other cords (interference).

I say try the product, but save your receipt.Hopefully you will be as pleasantly surprised as I was.

1-0 out of 5 stars slim look and poor performance
This antenna has a low-profile inobtrusive look, and comes with a built-in 30dB amplifier with adjustable gain. However, the passive part of the antenna (the dipoles which actually pick up the signal from the air and convert it to electrical signal fed into the amplifier and further into the TV) appears to be mediocre. This is not surprising since it is known that efficient antennas usually have their geometrical size comparable with the wavelength of the signal which they are designed to receieve. For the channels 1 through 10 or so, the required size is in the meter range. The Jensen product is a lot smaller than that, which makes me think that they sacrificed the performance of the dipoles in favor of making the antenna a lot smaller, and tried to get its efficiency back to the "rabbit ears" by using a built-in amplifier. I hoped that it would work slightly less than the cheapest "rabbit ears" antenna that I already have - but in fact, I got extremely poor reception even at a maximum amplification - much worse than I had with a primitive dipole antenna. I had to return this product. In my understanding, it would work only in the areas with a direct view of the transmitter unobstructed by terrain features, where the sensitivity can be traded for a small size and easy wall mount. I find the Jensen's claims that it provides a better reception than non-amplified antennas wrong and misleading.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not a good one
I completely agree with the other reviewers. This antenna is not at all effective. Tried it all over the room etc but never got half the stations the plain old rabbit ears brought in. Returned it to the store. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars here we go
ok. some of you are asking if this works with laptops or some other chargers. before you buy this, go check you adapter and see what the input is. my laptop adapter's input is 120-240 to some value. this means it works about anywhere.
another thing i saw was someone complaining about the replacable glass fuse. well this is the kind of fuse that you can find anywhere in most countries that are 240 V (its less available here in US). but if it was a usual cercuit breaker then u would have even more problems because if it dies the whole converter dies until you get somewhere that u can fix it.
i hope it was helpful. but i give it a four because the quality is cheap, yet an expensive price for such a cheap product. this product should be about 15 bucks.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not for 50 to 500 watts
I never got to use this device. I returned it because the device is not specified to operate for appliances between 50 and 500 watts. The product description does not mention this detail. So, if you have appliances within this range, look elsewhere. Other than this, the product looks fine and should work well for battery chargers, small electronics and hair dryers (but not things in between).

2-0 out of 5 stars seemed great but
This is a nicely packed unit and very easy to travel with.On my second trip to Australia the unit fuse didn't blow but the unit caught on fire. Targus has a very nice unit as I have now found out and it is much more compact.

3-0 out of 5 stars With which device should this thing not be used?
Some one had asked if this converter could be used with a play station. No body answered. My question is: Can it be used with laptop computers? The editorial says this converter is good for certain identified devices, ending the enumeration with the cryptic "etc." But knowing which devices this converter should not be used is more important than knowing the devices with which it can be used!

4-0 out of 5 stars Recoton ADF1650 50/1600W Dual Wattage Travel Converter
It's a great product with dual selectable wattage and additional adapters, however I am dissapointed that for the price, it does not have a circuit braker protection. You can buy competitive brands for less.
I would not buy it if I would know ahead, that it does not have a circuit braker protection, but replacable glass fuse.
Do you want to worry about fuses when traveling to Europe, I don't? ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars For TVs with only a coaxial input
If you are wondering how to hook up your new DVD/VCR to an older TV which still works fine, then an RF Modulator is what you really need to allow the connection of a DVD player to your older TV set.

You plug your DVD/VCR player into the RF Modulator and plug the RF Modulator into the coaxial input.

It is like buying a new TV, just less expensive.

Simple to install and very worthwhile. Mine is hidden up behind the TV, you can't even see it is there.

5-0 out of 5 stars A very good deal for the money!
I primarily use these at work at my desk with a CD clock radio and they are the easiest to take on and off the ears due to the swing-a-way ear clips. The sport behind-the-neck style was a hassle (long full hair--a girl thing!)and ear buds HURT--no matter what brand! They don't fit tight, they're light and comfortable, even with earrings. The coiled cord with on-cord volume control is a plus. I'm very satisfied with the sound quality and highly recommend this brand/style of bandless headphones. A+!

4-0 out of 5 stars Good quality to dollar value!
After reading some reviews I was skeptical but all I wanted them for was to sit at my desk in studio since strereos, or out loud playing of music, is against policy. I figured these would get the job done and wasn't expecting much. WOW, was I suprised! I love my music and I got much better sound quality than I expected for the money I spent. However, like all inexpensive product, the Jensen Wireless Headphones takes a while to tune into the right frequency and requires very fine tuning across a very wide band to get superior sound quality. If you want to save the money and get these, be prepared to have patience before enjoying at full potential. I give it 4 stars!

1-0 out of 5 stars Poor performance
The only use I have found for these headphones is to use them directly in front of the TV. Even then the sound is extremely poor. Any sharp noises like clapping or drums comes out as static. I have to fiddle with the tuning constantly to keep the static down, and that's without moving around. If you position yourself just right, have the tuning just right, they are almost usable. Don't even think about using these for music as that experince would be painful with these headphones. I also cannot use these in most parts of the house as they tend to pick up noise from Fluorescent lights and cordless telephones quite easily. Do not waste your money on these, as they are not worth it even if they were free.

2-0 out of 5 stars Constant Adjestment
TV sound is OK, but static requires almost constant tuning of earphones. I usually used the earphones within 10 feet of the transmitter, but still got a lot of static unless perfectly tuned.

4-0 out of 5 stars Best Cheap Headhones
Ive tryed many cheap headphone's and they useally break from high volume too much base or getting stood on etc...
These are the best headphones i have come across, they can handle as much sound quality as you have to offer i am using them right now with 3D surround, Bass Boost, SRS WOW Effects, Graphic Equalizer and i can here every beat with no muffle no tinny noises and the bass dosent reck the earphones.
The only drawback to the headphones is that everyone in a 2 meter radius can also hear what you are listening too, suppose thats a good thing if you like to miff people off :) ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Jensen's JF25 Stereo Headphones are a rare treat--comfortable headphones that are as pleasing to the ears as they are to the head. With clear, open highs and full, deep bass, the JF25s will render your favorite music with authority and verve.

The Jensen JF25 Headphones' ear-fitting drivers, light weight, and self-adjusting headband ensure comfort and ease of listening. Both speaker leads travel in a single wire stemming from the left earcup, minimizing knotting and allowing freer movement during use.

A clippable level-control mechanism (up, down, or mute) obviates the need for immediate access to your listening device, letting you tuck your portable cassette, MiniDisc, CD, or MP3 player into a backpack, purse, or pocket. We found the volume control inconvenient. The knob is hard to access and the mute control button needs to be pressed continuously, instead of being a simple instant-kill switch.

While Jensen reports a 20 to 20,000 Hz frequency range for the JF25s, it does not state the variances from "flat" along this range. Expect some suck-out in the midrange, and slight bloatedness in the bass (the usual sacrifices for headphones commanding low-frequency tonal response). But overall the sound is good, with strong bass and clear, non-abrasive treble.

An included 1/4-inch adapter fosters listening from component audio sources such as integrated amplifiers, CD players, and some DVD machines.

Pros:

  • Good, full-range sound
  • Comfortable
  • Lifetime warranty

Cons:

  • Trackball volume control hard to use
  • Slightly bloated bass

4-0 out of 5 stars Well, more like 4.5 stars, actually....
I am so happy that I purchased this pair of headphones! I have never owned anything but the dinky 5 dollar ones before, and was sick of having constantly aching ears from the poor sound quality, as well as cheap parts rubbing against sensitive ear bits. These 'phones have changed everything. Here's the good stuff: *They have rich, deep sound, and block out or muffle outside noise. *Super-comfortable! They hug around your ears rather than pressing against them. *Little to no distortion at high volume levels. *Big bass - I have tested these guys with some of the bassiest techno I could find, and it performed exceedingly well. *The extra-long cord, with the mute and volume control within easy reach, are very convenient.

Now the bad points: * They are big, and they are clunky. * If you are in a hot room, they will make you sweatier because they cover so much skin. Also, people who are claustophic about things around their heads or faces will find this uncomfortable, and are probably better off getting a much smaller set of phones. * Treble could use a little bit of work. Very heavy bass at very high volume will drown out the treble, which makes listening annoying. However, if you are listening on a device that has equalizer control, you can probably adjust it to a more comfortable level. Also, this probably won't even come up unless you are listening to some heavy techno, etc. *They are heavy and tend to want to slip off your hair while you wearing them. No head-banging with these puppies on! ; )

But man, they are so comfortable! The sound is very nice; much nicer than I expected for the price. If you are looking for a comfy pair of heradphones that will allow you to really *enjoy* your music, try these on for size. Enjoy!

4-0 out of 5 stars Big Sound At A Small Price
The Jensen JF25 Headphones are very well designed. This headphones fits you very well, with the help of the self-adjusting headband. It will adjust to your head and will fit right on your ears. You will also notice that they feel lightweight but yet solid and very comfortable. With people saying that it hurt your ears after wearing them for a long period of time, I find it to be very comfortable still.

The volume control is very convenient and the mute button is a nice addition. The only thing I don't like about this headphone is that you have to press and hold down the mute button for it to work. It's kind of point less when there's already a volume control button. The volume control knob is very well designed, IMHO. The JF25 headphones have a single cord design, reducing tangling and knotting. Jensen also provides a lifetime warranty. A 1/4" adapter is also included.

These headphones provides a good full-range sound and a powerful but yet clear bass. When you turn up the volume, the sounds doesn't crack and are still crisp and clear. Overall, the sound quality is very good for the price.

The Jensen JF25 Headphones are very comfortable and the sound quality is very good. The control on the headphones gives you quick access to volume and mute button. If you are on a budget and want the best value for your money then I would highly recommend this headphones. They are worth your money and more.

they are so good i bought 2! one for me and one for my friend. they sound good and they are very comfortable, and affortable.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great sound and value, but hurts my ears
Pros:
- Great sound (for its class)
- Nice long cord (not to short, not too long)

Cons:
- It feels like my ears are going to fall off after wearing them for thirty minutes.

If comfort is no issue, then these are the best cheap headphones around.

Although these headphones work well as far as headphones go, they are more cumbersome than comparable varieties and they have an extraordinarily long cord, making storage and even usage very difficult. Additionally, one of the adjustment rods broke soon after purchase, making wear fairly uncomfortable. ... Read more

This antenna works great. I'm able to get all the D.C. High Definition channels. I can even get the Baltimore channels when I rotate it toward Baltimore. After spending over $200 trying other antennas, this was the answer for my HD reception in Fort Washington, MD

1-0 out of 5 stars yeah
I disagree with some of the 1 star reviews below, but i have to say that, why a antenae, if you are buying off of amazon.com, with a *computer* than you obviously have enough money for that, unless someone gave it to you, oh wait interweb isn't free. yeah why would you ever buy a antenae, thats just plain dumb, go get a dish for 25 bucks somewhere. or cable, then you could share your interweb bill with you tv bill. Common sense people. anways Jensen isn't a very good brand, go RCA or sony all the way.

3-0 out of 5 stars you get what you pay for
I was pretty happy with these cables until one day after about 6 months of using the cables I was watching a dvd and noticed the color was messed up--the blue and red were flickering out. I replugged the component cables and it was fine again, but I have a feeling these cables aren't going to last very long.

5-0 out of 5 stars Gets the job done!
These carry the signal as well as Big Name Brand cables costing ten times as much. Save your money for buying more movies!

5-0 out of 5 stars Works great
Better than the gold plated RCA cables from Radio Shack. What more can you ask for? I see no reason not to recommend them highly.

5-0 out of 5 stars Value for money
I'm glad I purchased the Recoton DVD361 6-Foot Component Video Cable instead of the expensive Monster Component Video Cable.
It is a very good quality product for the low price.

5-0 out of 5 stars They work. What else you need.
Do not spend money on expensive Monster Cables. I doubt if those Monsters will give you anything more than these plain Recoton cables.

I bought S-Video cable from Recoton too. They too nicely work. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Advent's AW770 WirelessStereo Headphone is a wonder of modern home-electronicstechnology, rendering clear, full-bodied sound from CD players,VCRs, televisions, boomboxes, and other audio sources--all thewhile giving you complete freedom to move about.

The AW770 comes with two main parts: the transmitter and theheadphones. About five inches in diameter, the transmitter plugs into a standard wall outlet and hooks into your desired audio source via a single stereo RCA cable. It has onecontrol wheel for tuning and another that serves as master volume. The headphones have their own volume control as well. In our tests, we found that transmission noise was lowest when the transmitter volume was left at maximum. We positioned the transmitter's tuner arbitrarily while setting up and found that the headset's tuner zeroed in on the appropriate frequency with little adjustment.

The transmitter range, rated at 300 feet, seemed surprisingly large, but sound proved enjoyable at distances in excess of300 feet. However, static and crackle did intrude as distance fromthe transmitter increased. Some locations required us to "retune"the headphones for clearer reception, but in general, the systemworked smoothly once it was set.

The sound from our test CD closely resembled that of clear FMradio: dynamically compressed, slightly hissy at its quietest,and somewhat pronounced in the high frequencies though very listenable. The compact headphones,which can be powered by either standard or rechargeable Ni-Cad AAAbatteries (supplied), sounded warm and full in the bass though slightly harsh at the top end, especially at very loud levels. However, this effect was counteracted by the headphones' sealed-enclosure design, which blocked out enough ambient noise so that we never hadto crank them too high.

Forconvenience, comfort, and good overall sound, the Advent AW770 isa steal.

Pros:

  • Clear sound
  • Good bass response
  • Usable over wide area (even different floors)
  • Comfortable headband

Cons:

  • Headphones sound harsh at loud levels
  • Different battery states require different tuning

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for wireless uses
If you are looking for a great WIRELESS option, this is certainly the way to go. The range is great--I can listen to them anywhere in the house or in the yard. The sound is crisp and clear, though there is a minute amount of background hiss because of the FM transmission. Initial charging takes awhile to hold (a full 24 hours), but after that an overnight charge generally lasts 4-5 hours. The bass is reduced standard, but if compensated by equalizing at the source, you can make them sound great.

Why the emphasis on WIRELESS? Because let's face it, their not a $100 pair of corded phones. The slight FM background hiss, the ocassional static and RF interference, and the need to charge them can at times be annoying. Corded phones typically have no hiss, great response with big bass, and can be less bulky. But I particularly needed wireless phones and find that they are great for all of my needs. I would recommend them to anyone who hates being tied to a chair or small range when wearing headphones.

If hi-fi unity sound is your goal, look for some corded phones. If you want cordless, these are certainly worth the money.

3-0 out of 5 stars Decent sound but tuning and recharging them a chore
I was moderately dissapointed with these but don't know how they compare with other wireless headphones on the market. Their sound is comparable to a decent set of plug in headphones with nice booming bass. The problem is if they aren't tuned properly there is alot of interference and static which makes them virtually impossible to listen to. Tuning them requiews fiddling with 3 or 4 dials both on the headphones themselves and on the back of the unit. Getting a good clear sound free of background noise can often take up to half an hour of fiddling. Also, if you move around a lot you can throw the reception off meaning you have to go back and fiddle with the dials again. The battery has a life of 7 hours meaning if you plug them in to the recharger whenever you're not using them you'll probably be ok. I would say if you're desperate for a pair of cordless phones these are probably good but you can easily buy a pair of good quality non-wireless phones for the same price or cheaper and save yourself a lot of hassle.

1-0 out of 5 stars Easily breakable headset, charging suggestion
I'm not brutal with equipment, but in a few short weeks, the flimsy plastic part that holds the ear pieces to the headset broke on one side. Within a month or two the other side went as well forcing me to use office paper clamps to hold the whole thing together.

I use them in bed late at night when the household is asleep. A second convenient bedside charger would be nice. I tend to put them down on the bedside table before I doze off rather than get up and walk across the room hook it up for recharge. If you're a late night TV watcher, you too might call this justifiable laziness. Too many times I put them on the next night and find the battery's down.

I honestly think that before I replace them with another wireless, I'd find a way to sneak an extension wire across the room through attic or basement space and go with a standard wired headphone.

1-0 out of 5 stars Experimental Head Gear
I thought wireless would allow me to move freely while listening to music, but that has been anything but the case. With my pair, there is a constant 'fuzz' almost like I am listening to an old AM radio. It falls out of frequency so often I find myself adjusting the tuner usually after 3 or 4 songs. If I simply move four feet away from the receiver I am punished by extremely loud distortion. It's painful. Since I've had these I've yet to be able to find the 'perfect' frequency, never getting the clear sound I had hoped for. In addition to the flawed usability, these are a lot bigger than they look and a just a little too cumbersome. I've learned that with wireless headphones it's best to spend a little extra for better quality. But it cheap, buy it twice.

2-0 out of 5 stars Decent sound for music, poor for talk
I had to return these phones as they were essentially unusable for spoken words. I use headphones on the computer for both music listening and internet phone calls. Music sounded okay, although there was some detectable hissing. However, talk (or anything with silent patches) was very choppy. You could make out what was being said, but it made extended calls somewhat aggravating.

On the plus side, the phones were very comfortable. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Easy way to hook up several things to an old TV!
I have an old TV, and just got a new DVD for Christmas. We also have a VCR and Playstation 2, and I wanted to hook them all up to the TV (DVD recommends not going through a VCR for better picture, which is true). This modulator was really easy to use. There's an RF cable going out to the TV, one coming in from the VCR/antenna, and two audio/video cables coming in from the DVD and PS2, plus space for one more a/v cable. There are buttons in front to switch between the a/v cables (one for DVD, one for PS2). It could be an ounce more convenient to have a remote to switch between the a/v cables, but, come on, we're not that lazy! I recommend this for those who need to hook up more than one a/v cable to an old TV, even if you don't know anything about electronics (I didn't!). ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Indespensible component and a great value
I was skeptical about the Recoton SVS1000 S-Video Switch because of its low price relative to alternative switches, but I read some positive reviews about it ..and therefore thought I would try it out since I could always return it. The positive reviewers were correct. It is a great little box and does exactly -- no more no less -- what I bought it for.

For neophytes, this switch solves "S-video crowding problems" experienced when one's TV possesses insufficient single S-video input jacks to accommodate all of one's peripheral video input devices. For instance, I have a "rack" in which I place my home theater components such as Receiver/Amplifier, DVD, 2 VCR's, PS2, Dreamcast, etc. Unfortunately my TV has only one S-video input and my HT receiver/amplifier can only "s-switch" two devices (DVD & VCR). Hence, this little lightweight 4-hub switch was a godsend.

Currently, I use it to conveniently switch between my PS2 & Dreamcast with the other slots reserved for a Game Cube and X-box. This allows me to leave my gaming setup perpetually hooked up in a neat and attractive manner, thereby avoiding the wrath of the "cablenazi" -- aka my wife :-) Furthermore, it adds convenience to any s-video connection such as hooking up one's camcorder (it's much easier plugging a cable into this tiny lightweight hub than it is reaching behind a heavy TV to "unplug-plug-replug" s-video cables).

Lastly, remember if you order this you will need an additional S-video cable (use Monster cables..) to connect the switch's output port into your TV or receiver.

In summary, I highly recommend this product and was just amazed at how cheaply it solved my cable connection problems.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great little device for your home entertainment center
Most modern television sets come with only two Audio/Video (front and back), and one S-Video connectors. So what do you do when your DVD player, satellite receiver, Playstation, TiVo, etc want those for themselves?

You can either move your television and plug/unplug whatever you're going to use at the time (which can drive you nuts, not to mention wear out your connectors), or just invest in one of these little things.

I love how simple the Recoton is. You just plug your stuff into the back of it (up to 4 different devices), then run another set of cables from the "out" jacks to the back of your TV. That's it! I've seen other little boxes that do the same thing for hundreds of dollars, and need electricity to work. A total waste of money, in my opinion. I keep my Recoton on top of my television set, and switch between each device with a push of a button now. No more having to deal with wires everywhere or moving the TV.

The Recoton doesn't come with extra cables to run from the back of it to your TV set, so if you don't have some spare A/V and S-Video cables around, be sure to get a set. I personally use the brand from Monster Cable, which has wonderful picture quality.

5-0 out of 5 stars GReat Gadget I Needed But Didn't Know Existed
I needed to evaluate a new version of the MSN Web TV component that hitches up to a television/stereo system. All my S-Video and RCA inputs/outputs were already taken up by -- and daisy-chained through -- a digital-CD player, a stereo receiver, a satellite antenna box, a VCR, an older analog television, VCR, etc. I rummaged through electronic aisles at CompUSA and found this wonderful solution, inexpensive and sufficiently easy to hook up that no instructions are needed. I don't know what model I have -- it sounds exactly like what is described here but looks a little different, more modern. And it does the job. As digital and analog media increasingly fuse together into a home media center, older components are going to be lacking sufficient s-video and other video/stereo connections. The Recoton S-Video Switch saves the day! My only concern is that the four hook-ups may not be enough.

5-0 out of 5 stars look for the SVS1000A model
The SVS1000A model allows you to have some inputs with only composite video, but still output to the S-video port (I haven't tested this, but the box says it will work). The video quality won't be as good, but it is very convenient. The "A" model case looks a little different too. FYI, your local Best Buy store might carry these.

I've also read that this switch can be used for component video, as long as you're consistent with your color combinations (mapping your red, white, and yellow to red, green, and blue).

Great deal for the money.

5-0 out of 5 stars indispensable
I bought the Recoton SVS1000 after getting a second VCR, and a DVD player, for my TV. This despite the fact that my TV had three video inputs to begin with. These days a couple of inputs isn't enough. Especially when you count video game systems, and camcorders. Getting this saved me from having to swap cables all the time, which is what I was duing until I got it. It's simple to use, just plug and click. It's a great time saver. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Satisfied
I bought this antenna, along with the 15-1880 model from Radio Shack ($49.95), and the Terk HDTVi ($39.95). The Terk received only 3 channels (2 HD), and the Radio Shack received 12 channels (8 HD). The Jensen received 22 channels (10 in HD). It also helps that I found this antenna from HH Gregg for only $39.99. So far, I am very pleased. My HD reception is incredible.

1-0 out of 5 stars A huge waste of money
First of all the product itself is very expensive.... This is mainly because the antenna has a small remote control you adjust the reception with. This feature is sort of neat, but its not enough to make up for the poor performance of the item. Basically, the item will improve reception on a handful of channels. For me these channels were the ones closest to my house (I can get these channels with any antenna. I didn't need to spend over 100 Canadian dollars to get those channels). I also noticed that those channels I should be getting fuzzy reception on where actually made worse by this antenna. Then I moved to the USA and had the same problem at my apartment there. The last straw was noticing all 7 people in my apartment building getting better reception than me (one of the guys was using a early 1980's antenna held together by masking tape). So, I bought a much cheaper antenna that had good reviews and now I get great reception. This antenna system sits collecting dust in a box never to be used again. If you enjoy wasting money, buy this antenna. If you want improved reception, buy ANYTHING else. I'm sure what ever you buy will be better than this one and will cost you less at that.

4-0 out of 5 stars Works in rural Kansas, week remote
We live on a farm 30 miles from a city in KS and have a wide range of signal strengths, from a tower 4 miles away to one 50 miles away. We used the remote to adjust for maximum picture quality for each station and saved the adjustment. With this we can view all channels with a clear picture by using the remote recall the best position for each channel. We can now view several channels without the changing color bands we had before.
Only the week remote and the glare off of the display keeps me from a five star award.

2-0 out of 5 stars good theory, disappointing in practice
Here's a nifty new concept: create an antenna where the optimal settings for each station are recorded and preset and can be accessed by memory remote, add on an adjustable amplifier to tune in weak signals and tune down overly strong signals, all in one package. Great ideas. I live in Boston and have only a handful of viewable stations w/the antenna that came w/my TV. I thought this device would help me gain a few more.

I set up the antenna as per the manual and did a head to head test comparing this new device with my old antenna. I then viewed the reception on each channel by first viewing it with the Jensen antenna, then removing the coax cable and replacing it with the old atenna, taking care to not move either the Jensen or the TV.

Results: marginal improvement in picture quality in 2 stations, but LOSS of ability to view channel 10 with the Jensen. In addition, I was unable to pick up ANY additional stations.

My conclusion: the Jensen probably is of questionable benefit in urban settings. How it performs in rural settings remains for others to determine.

5-0 out of 5 stars Everything I expected...
This indoor antennae provides great indoor reception in a very convenient manner--best antennae I've ever come across, matter of fact. The remote that came with it has a weak signal, so I programmed it into my universal remote, and voila!, now I get to be an even lazier couch potatoe! ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Pros: music, range ; Cons: battery, clarity, durability
This review is for the Advent AW720. Don't buy it.

1. Very weak battery life.

According to the manual, it takes 12 hours to completely charge the Ni-Cd battery and a completely charged battery yields 4 hours of playtime. 12/4 is unacceptable. The weakest of Sony headphones have batteries that charge for 24 hours but yield 30 hours playtime. So if you charge the weakest Sony headphone battery for 12 hours, you get 15 hours, or 3 times the charge! That's more like it! The Advent battery makes you feel limited and I don't like feeling limited. Second, this may sound silly, it costs you to charge the headphones. If I didn't live in a dorm, I'd care! Those nickels can add up!

2. Poor clarity for anything except music (no dvd, videos, etc.)

Really, when I'm not using my headphones, I always have them charging! I always start off with 100% charged battery. And I play around with tuning knobs on both the headphone and the base. I do everything yet I cannot get rid of the "audio scratches" when watching a DVD on tv or watching a video on my computer. True, the careful tuning can get rid of the "hiss" but the "audio scratches" will be there at least every ten seconds no matter what you do when using the headphones for anything but music.

I tried to use the "special connection" (for my dvd player)that they give you rather than the typical headphone jack connection. Batteries were 75% charged. As usual, with proper tuning, the hiss was gone. But the "audio scratches" stayed! Those scratches totally ruin your movie watching experience! Second, I had to crawl down, disconnect the tv audio input nad then connect the headphone input to the dvd. When I finished trying to use the headphone, I had to crawl done again, disconnect and reconnect the tv audio. Who wants to go through that trouble for a "special connection" that doesn't really work? And how is it even possible if the battery is so weak that after half way through the movie it is signifcantly uncharged? Pathetic!

That being said, the sound quality of this headphone is great for music from my computer. No doubt about it. There are very few "audio scratches" there and with proper tuning the hiss will go down. Also, contrary to some reports, these headphones can be very, very loud indeed without being harsh!

3. Not very durable (then again, how many are?)

Close to the ear cup, there is a strip that is very easy to wear and tear. The ear cups themselves are of hollow plastic (although this is OK). Every time I put on the headphone, I feel afraid to break that part. Even the ear cups are poorly connected to the stem (this doesn't seem to be trouble). I admit it is easy to reinforce that weak area near the cup with duck tape and it won't trouble you at all, but who wants that! But then again, how many durable headphones are there? I wouldn't put my money on the RCA 160 Whip or whatever. I'm sure you can find something better anyway.

4. Range is very good!

I live in a dorm where there are thick walls. I can get out of my room and up to 30 (not 300) feet in the hallway and I can listen to music with no trouble. Hey, that's not bad is it, considering the fact that some headphones promise only up to 24 (of course, you know what they promise isn't the same as it really is, so factor that in). I still think 30 feet near thick walls is very impressive. And I'll bet that if it was a more open area, I'd get even better range. Impressive for that and probably top notch!

Conclusion:

Don't buy it. The battery is unacceptable. Very limited play time. And you are limited only to music. You can't watch movies or videos or watch tv with this headphone! Oh no you can't, not without getting an annoying "audio scratch" every the seconds even if the battery if fully charged and you use the optimum connection they tell you on DVD! And that is unacceptable because it ruins your movie experience!

I paid 17 dollars for these headphones right here at amazon (I hear the current price is 64!). I'd say you cap your price to 40 dollars (be patient, there'll be some merchant selling for a 40 dollars or less) and buy a Sony. I hear that even the Sonys are very poor, but at least you get a stronger battery?

Good luck.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Product from Acoustic Research
I bought my AW791 from Ebay a year ago and all I can say is it's money well spent. It sells for about $200 but I got mine cheap for $120. I had a problem with to much hiss at first, but it went away as I continued to use it. I also tried different types of connections and cables and I had to settle for Monster Cables. I found out that utilizing the Digital Coax or Optical input jacks at the back of the unit, combined with FULLY CHARGED batteries, (this is very important) would eliminate the hiss. It has Dolby Digital capability so I use the Surround Sound when I'm watching a movie and switch to Dolby Stereo whenever I want to just listen to music. The Bass is hefty and the Surround effect is fantastic. Your ears will be ungulfed in sound details, which in my opinion can rival any sound from a studio room. You can connect 3 audio sources to this baby, 2 Digital and 1 Analog audio inputs. I connected 1 Monster M1000D Coax to my computer and 1 Monster Cable Ref Optical to my Onkyo receiver outs, and I can walk around the house listening to just about anything.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Sound
I shopped all around!! The AW791 Dolby Digital are the best value on the market. The sound is great, you have the freedom to move from room to room with only minimal sound loss. No "line of site" restrictions like the IR wireless headphones. Two "Digital" inputs and one analog means you can plug in an array of sources. Battery life exceeds all others. They are comfortable to wear for extended periods for the real long movies. The ONLY thing to look out for is the pivot point on each ear piece. It is a weak joint that can break if twisted wrong. Make certain to put on and take off with ease.
All around a great product and if you shop around you will NOT find an exact product like it. Way to go AR!

4-0 out of 5 stars AW 791
some of the reviews above are in-accurate.
First off: there is no tuning knob on the base so they (other reviews) must be referencing another model. (aw721?)
This model has three channel selectors

I got mine off ebay for $50.

pro's:
-works great, little hiss when its turned on, but this is because it is auto tuning ( 3 seconds)
-takes digital inputs (optical too)
-volume goes way up.
-comparable if not better than my Sony MDR-CD380
-freedom from my mp3 player, pc, etc
-? interferes with my cell phone's incomming signal. (side-effect, but nice "Feature" ;)

con's:
-feels weak. dont think it will survive a drop or sit-on

-the light on the base when charging does not glow. (I dont know if it should, I must call them)
-Batteries dont seem to charge. Maybe this problem is limited to my set.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not Suitable for Bed Use
My primary use of these is to watch movies while in bed before sleep. Problem is that headphones are so large, uncomfortable. so I made mod to them and installed small minijack in the headphones which allows me to plug in another, smaller headphone set for use in bed. AR should really have thought about it and provided such a jack. Not a major modification to accomplish.

As to quality of headphone sound, do get some "static" or interference now and again when headphones are only 10 feet away from transmitter base station.
