It's not as easy as it should be to hook this system up to your TV. Then the sound is great for all of FIVE MINUTES -- until the unit by the TV just suddenly decides to turn itself off for no reason and you hear a loud hissing sound in your ears and you have to turn off the headphones, get up, go unplug the unit from the TV, plug it back in, and turn the headphones back on, until it does it again FIVE MINUTES LATER. Even the switches are hard to manipulate on the headphones--they're small and close together so you're not sure which ones you're turning on/off. I tried changing the batteries in the headphones thinking that might help, but it didn't. This set is going back PRONTO.
