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 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.

5-0 out of 5 stars there grrrreat
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.

3-0 out of 5 stars Mediocre headphones
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

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

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. This product is not 100% clean of static or interference. Interesting though that although get some static or noise only 10 feet away, can actually hear sound in headphones some 100 feet away. Good quality sound reproduction. Have had to replace rechargable batteries once already and have not owned unit a year yet.

Never owned another pair of wirelss and so can not compare to others. Good sound reproduction but not 100 % free of wireless static or interference and whole product is plastic, plastic, plastic and have already broken one side of unit while using in bed. Structurally not the best product I have ever seen. ... Read more

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

5-0 out of 5 stars Great sound processor, unique design!
I purchased this item earlier this year may 2004. I would like to say. It's an excellent product for creating a more live soundstage to conventional home theater set-up to more refined high home theater systems. There are plenty of audiophiles such as myself who TWEAK their system irregardless of the components used from low-fi to higher end. Even without the additional sound processors I have bridged with this enhancer, my PIONEER HIGH RECEIVER WITH MAGNEPAN, SRSLABS, THEATER RESEARCH SPEAKERS just bloom into a much wider and lively concerto soundstage.
I have been using various sound processors for 25 years and as a former high end home theater installer, this is basically an advancement of the original OMNISONIC IMAGER made by omnisonix back in 1979, no longer in existence. Carver sonic holography replaced that, which I also had along with DBX 3BX III expanders w/impact restoration...That made any analog recording sound somewhat digital and "LIVE" presentation. The TDS-202 is the refined version of the CARVER HOLOGRAPHY. I have all these processors including the APHEX AUREL EXCITER/BIG BOTTOM which has great reviews and SRSLABS SPATIAL ENHANCER and the CARVER HAV-9 SONIC HOLOGRAPHY...the later version of C-9 made in 1981. I must say, this is a MUST for conventional home theater applications and 2 channel systems creating a 3-dimensional soundstage with wider dynamics. For high end systems, this will improve the 3-dimensional spectrum and expand the acoustical dispersion of your speakers.
If you interconnect all the processors I have included above, the soundstage is short of AMAZING! The recordings from a CD OR DVD sounds as if the band or people are in front or back of you.
The acoustic research TDS-202 enhancer can make any system as they claim SOUND MUCH LIVELIER and with clarity...I AGREE with my technical knowledge and experience to back that up. Remember, all these sound processors are all different and can compliment each other if one has technical knowledge and experience. They are all different and highly recommended. What is great about the TDS-202 is that it doesn't require any voltage or direct current to amplify it. Amazing product for the price and a recommended piece of equipment for the novice to professional/audiophile. Check also the DAXIOM STABILIZERS R-103 OR H-103, the latest technology in sound enhancement, coupled with the ACOUSTIC RESEARCH TDS-202 would create HARMONY in the audioworld.
Remember, Don't compare any of these sound processors/enhancers, they are all patentedly different and COMPLIMENT one another and NOT an ALTERNATIVE.
From a former high end home theater installer with 25 yrs of audio experience,returning to the US ARMY for patriotic reasons, a true audiophile who have been using various processors and accessories since 1979. This product is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent product for mid-fi systems
I've had the original TDS-II box that does the same thing as this one for five or six years. Unlike other little black effect boxes I've tried in the past, this one I've never taken out of the signal path and whenever I play music cd's, I always have the box turned on. When you first hook it up and turn it on, the most apparent thing you notice is the sound becomes louder and slightly brighter. The effect may seem subtle initially but give it a few days and you will definitely prefer the sound being processed by this box because if you go back to ordinary stereo, you'll swear something is missing. Recently, I've used this to enhance cd-r's and playing them back on the car stereo is just awesome-sounding. This unit brings a certain presence to cd's on mid-fi systems & car stereos, especially. I'd recommend this unit over any cable upgrade in a second - I can't understand why the product has not become more popular. Grab one if they're still available. BTW, the description of this product here is quite misleading: this unit has no speaker - it's an effects box.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great upgrade to any CD based system!!!
This is one of the most effective upgrade products that lets you squeeze the last ounce from your system, specially if it is CD based.

If you have had the chance of listening to an outbaord DAC compared to the built-in electronics on the average CD or DVD player and found that that is the way to go, then prepare yourself to feel that experience again.

I don't want to stress the fact that you need an outboard DAC to realize the benefits of the TDS (it also works greatly with stand alone state of the art CD and DVD players); just get another set of analog interconnects to insert the TDS between your DAC, CD or DVD player to your pre-amp, turn on the unit and that's it: a system upgrade that will bring out a sound experience very close to the megabuck dimension!

If you prefer, you can also insert the TDS between the stereo output of your pre-amp and the input of your amp. I have it connected this way and not only outperforms the high quality sound I thought I had before on my digital front end but the whole system (these are DSS, VCR, LDP, CD, DVD, TD, etc.), achieving the very same results with any of the components.

A caution note should be observed: as this is a completely passive device (doesn't need to be plugged into the AC outlets), it is propense to suffer from EM/RFI distortion produced by the active units nearby, so you will have to put it far enough from such devices in order to have it working properly (without noise distortion). The TDS comes with a pair of 1 meter lenght AR stereo interconnects, which are very useful and show the average quality of AR stuff; nevertheless, you can do better with higher quality ones.

The effect is, in a word, outstanding! TDS recovers sound info that otherwise is subtle or not audible from the recordings played in your system as is, which can be defined as: spatial presence (or 3 dimentionality), sound decay, differentiation (clean timbre), realism and all without altering the original signal passed thru it. Human voice, piano, guitar and strings sound in a very relaxed and natural way that could be addictive; the generally congested sound of a pipe organ is transformed to a very pleasant and detailed experience, without being edgy or harsh at all.

In summary, the TDS is a worthy upgrade for your system but don't expect that the magic begin just the minute after you inserted it in the chain; TDS needs some burn-in period before a reliable veredict comes out, so give it a break of at least 1 week before judging or enjoying the benefits that will arise.

So enjoy sound, music and life...! ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Jensen's JM10 stereo headphones provide convenience, durability, and comfort at an affordable price--but, like most portable equipment, they lack excellence in sound quality.

Using large, 40mm elements (speaker drivers); a strong and flexible rubber headband; and stylish, pivoting earcups, the lightweight JM10s will fit just about any head and rest easily against your ears. The compact design lets you stash them in a pocket or briefcase without risk of breakage. A single wire from the left earcup alleviates wire-knotting, a common flaw in designs where each earphone is separately wired. A clippable level-control mechanism (up, down, or off) frees you from needing immediate access to your listening device, letting you tuck your portable cassette, MiniDisc, CD, or MP3 player into a backpack, purse, or pocket. An included 1/4-inch adapter fosters listening from component audio sources such as integrated amplifiers, CD players, and some DVD machines.

We found the sound of the JM10s to be mellow and unfatiguing, though these characteristics result in part from a limited frequency range and a pronounced boost in the upper-bass region. If you're tired of tiny, tinny headphones, and are seeking an easy, go-anywhere headset that won't disintegrate midway through your next plane flight, the JM10s will serve you just fine.

Pros:

  • Lightweight
  • Durable and flexible headband
  • Well-designed volume control

Cons:

  • Muddy sound

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Sound, Great Quality
I bought this because I needed good phones without the extra bulk. They're really lightweight, but not flimsy. They have very good sound quality. I really like the volume control on the headphones themselves. It gives me the extra level of control. All in all, a really good bang for your buck.

5-0 out of 5 stars These headphones are a great buy!
...these headphones are great! The sound quality is good. The cord is VERY long, and the volume control on the cord is a nice feature.

3-0 out of 5 stars Big Let Down
I was looking forward to getting new headphones, but I wish I'd either spent more money on a better pair or less money for something that was equally disappointing.
First of all, they were too big for my head. The minimum adjustment holds the speakers centered on my earlobe. If you have a smaller head (can wear kid-sized glasses for example), I suggest you look elsewhere.
The second disappointment was in the extra volume control. I assumed that I could get louder sound with two volume controls (the one on the headphones and the one on the CD player). Actually, the volume ended up being less than what I got out of my [...] headphones from Walgreens.
On the plus side, the swivel cups make them easier to carry around, and I don't have to be as careful when storing them because I don't worry about breaking off the speakers.

5-0 out of 5 stars These headphones fold FLAT and fit in my briefcase
I can't understand how Jensen delivers such a high qualityproduct for just a low price. The bass is most impressive, with the right amount of thump without overpowering other sounds. The earpads are comfortable enough for extended listening, and the adjustable headband is nice and substantial - not one of those thin metal bands you usually find on "budget" headphones. The long single cord is another plus - much more comfortable and convenient than headphones that have an under-chin yolk style cord. Volume control is also conveniently placed. I definitely don't feel like I'm compromising on sound quality when I listen to my favorite CDs on these headphones.

5-0 out of 5 stars Who could have guessed these would be so good for the price?
Jensen JM10 Anonymous Review I love these headphones!! The easy access volume control is right where I need it and I can turn it ON and OFF whenever I need to. They are a great value! The headphones stay where they are supposed to and fit my head great. The sound quality is clear and crisp. The single cord attached makes it feel as if your not wearing headphones at all. I would recommend it to all my friends. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

This headphone's open-air design lets you enjoy full, rich stereo sound without the boxy, "closed-in" feeling imparted by many closed-ear headphones. An open-air design prevents unwanted resonance from coloring your music.

While great for home listening, the JF40 may be inappropriate for public portable use, where the open-air design will make your music audible to others and will do nothing to keep external noise from interfering with your listening.

The headphone's 40mm elements and neodymium drivers are perfect for dynamic reproduction of digital sources, and a self-adjusting headband ensures a comfy fit.

A single-sided, 7-foot cord grants freedom of movement, while a volume control (with mute!) lets you adjust your listening at some remove from your source player.

A nice touch is a gold-plated minijack terminus, whose .25-inch stereo adapter facilitates hookup with component equipment. Jensen covers the headphone with a lifetime warranty. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Decent product with a couple minor production issues.
First, the good part. These are the second set of Jensen headphones I've purchased. They're a very good value compared to some of the others I've tried. The downside is that the signal will very slowly drift over the life of the batteries, but usually a slight tap of the tuning knob will bring it back. The newer models like this one appear to have better signal aquisition, so this may solve some of the drift problems I saw in older models. Battery life is pretty good, I usually went through a set every 6-7 days on the old one. (The old model required 3 AAA's instead of 2 however)

Now the bad, The production values are rather poor on the electronics in these headphones. My first pair started going rather glitchy on me, sometimes I'd have to lightly hit the side to get them to find the signal again, and the battery life started going down drastically. It also would rapidly lose signal when it had this problem. I took them apart and noticed that the soldering job was quite substandard, and there were several uninsulated speaker wires that were shorting out. After putting some insulation in on the board, the headphones started working perfectly. I took these apart after I recieved them and noticed the same problem. The headphone was also popped loose from its plastic fitting due to substandard glue. Both easily fixable if you're good with electronics.

4-0 out of 5 stars Better than expected performance.
The sound quality is very good, better than one might expect given that it uses FM radio transmission. The headphones run on two AAA penlight batteries and last me about five days at 2-3 hours per day. Rechargeable batteries would make a lot of sense if you intend frequent use. The receiver (base unit) is small, much less conspicuous than others I've seen advertised.

The are very good headphones for your money. They have a little bit of static at the maximum range but it still sound pretty good. ... Read more
