Makes speech easier to understand
This system is dialed-in to improve the sound of speech. It makes the dialogue in shows, movies, or the news clearer and easier to hear. At the push of a button, you can also set the transmitter to suit your listening preference — like boosting treble. Use the balance control to fine tune the amount of volume in the left or right ear.

RF Wireless Range: The Sennheiser Set 840-TV provides a wireless mobility range of up to 100 feet. It can transmit through walls, so you don't have to be in the same room as your TV or audio system.
RF Wireless Headphones: The RF wireless headphones features a stethoscope design. The lightweight RF wireless headphones are comfortable to wear because of the flexible earpads that fit inside the ear.
RF Transmitter/Charging Station: The RF transmitter/charging station connects to your television and then wirelessly transmits a stereo audio signal to the stethoscope-style wireless headphones. The RF transmitter/charging station also recharges the integrated battery inside the wireless headphone when they are placed on the base.
System Connections: The included RF transmitter/charging station features a 3.5mm input to connect to your television's audio or headphone output using the supplied stereo minijack cable, minijack-to-RCA cable, or 1/4" adapter.
Microphone: The Sennheiser Set 840-TV comes supplied with an external microphone which picks up the television's audio from the TV's built-in speaker. The microphone plugs into the 3.5mm audio input on the back of the RF transmitter/charging base and then is placed near the speaker of the television.
Auto Tuning: The wireless headphones automatically search for one of the 3 channels (925.95, 926.8, 927.5 MHz) of the transmitter to tune in your television's audio.
Ergonomic Controls: Ergonomic controls and visual feedback of certain operations make the Set 840-TV easy to use. There is a large, ergonomic volume control on the stethoscope-style headphones to adjust volume level. There is also a balance control on the headset to adjust the balance so that you hear equally well with both ears.
Three Selectable Hearing Settings: The Sennheiser Set 840-TV offers 3 selectable hearing settings on the transmitter. These settings optimize speech intelligibility due to switchable compression and treble emphasis.
Auto Power: The RF wireless headphones automatically turn-on when you place them on your ears and automatically turn-off when you take them out (after 30 seconds). If you are not within the range of the transmitter, the headphones automatically switch off after 3 minutes.
Power Supply: The RF wireless headphones feature an integrated lithium-polymer battery to ensure a long operating time of up to 9 hours. The headphones charge when they are rested on the transmitter/charging station (up to 3 hours). They can be placed in the transmitter's charging compartment facing in either direction. The transmitter/charging station operates off of standard AC household current using the supplied AC power adapter.
