MDR-RF865_wireless-thumb.JPGSony have launched two new sets of headphones today in the shape of the MDR-RF865RK wireless over-ears and noise-cancelling MDR-NC13 in-ears.

Wireless up to a range of 100 metres, the MDR-RF865RK headphones work over a 3-channel FM stereo signal. 3.5 hours of charging will give you 25 hours of playtime, while the headphones switch themselves off when docked with the charging cradle.

The MDR-NC13 in-ears claim to cut out 85% of ambient noise, using active noise-cancellation. A single AAA battery will offer 100 hours worth of noise-pollution-free playback.

Both headsets are due out next month, with pricing yet to be announced.

  • That’s exactly what I am trying to achieve, but with a Sony TV model KDL-26T3000, I cannot get sound from both TV and headphones at the same time. The shop told me to Google for advice, so here I am ! Any advice ? What model TV does your father have ? Michael McClintock

  • This is so great that I had to comment. I am usually just a lurker, taking in knowledge and nodding my head in quiet approval at the good stuff.

  • I got this for my 80-year old father who has trouble hearing. He is very satisfied with them. My mom is even more satisfied since he no longer has to play the TV or the CD player which is hooked into it and the amplifier at 80 decibels. I also found out that you can listen to both the TV and the headsets at the same time which means they can watch Charlie Rose together.
