Outstanding Headphones! Runs at 2.4Ghz.. may cause interference.
These are a steal! Mine were in the original packaging, it was just like buying an Open-box at Best Buy!
I Bought these for a TV I just installed in my workout / storage room. I used to be a Best Buy employee and typically the Insignia / Rocketfish branded products are good performers. These headphones are quite comfortable and work great for watching TV / Movies.
The audio quality is noticably compressed and sounds a little muddy for music but I'm really picky most people would probably never notice. The connect very easily and turn on and connect as soon as you lift them off the charger.
They seem to hold a good charge too. The charger itself is a little funky to place the headphones back in but not too bad. I do however wish they would have kept the design of using either 1 or 2 AA / AAA rechargeable NiMH batteries since these can be replaced.. Once the lithium battery inside these headphones gets older than 3-5 years it cannot be replaced.
Overall a great purchase! You can't beat them for this price.
NOTE Audio Dropouts:
One thing I've had an issue with is that my TV is a SMART TV and it is connected via WiFi (or at least it was) Most Wifi connected devices run at 2.4Ghz... These headphones ALSO run at 2.4Ghz which caused them to be spotty and drop out. I was able to run an ethernet cable to my TV instead since my router is in the same room which resolved the issue. If you experience issues like this it's most likely because something is causing interference.. In which case you will need to move it away from other wireless devices or try and run other devices on a 5ghz Wifi Network instead.. Just something to be considered.

The headset stopped working and the seller will do nothing.
Guess what? After 5.5 months they started to act up. The charged light and the charging light would both be on at the same time. About half the time I would remove the headset from the charging station and the red charging light would come on and the headset would not work. I would replace the headset and remove them again and they would work.
Then, at slightly over 6 months (a week), they stopped working. The seller will do nothing. In my case, the seller was "BuyingforCheap". They refuse to replace them since their warranty policy doesn't cover it.
Well, in my case, I'm stuck with a useless head set. However, perhaps I can prevent someone else from getting stuck with a product that doesn't work. They are not worth it at any price. Most reviews are from people who, like me, wrote the review shortly after buying the headset.
I can not make any recommendation to buy this headset. They failed and the seller doesn't care. I will be more careful in the future. Disregard the review I wrote below.
I thought my TV had an output but it does not. However, the cable box does have an output and that is where I hooked them up. Unfortunately, I can not listen to anything directly through my smart TV such as NetFlix, Hulu, etc. But, there is no sound delay and the headset works completely independently from the TV sound so my wife does not have to listen to the TV while I'm watching TV in bed. That's a good thing since I'm deaf as a stone.

Pleased with these for the value
Like many, I wanted these headphones to watch certain television and streaming shows that my partner doesn't care for. We downsized from a house with many separate spaces to an apartment, so it became important. I was surprised that almost none of the wifi headphones for TV got a full 5 stars, even in much higher price-ranges, so I decided to opt for a good price, since I really wanted these for occasional viewing and wasn't looking for the highest fidelity. The Insignia were on my list to purchase, but we decided to go to BestBuy and see what they had, in order to get a hands-on feel. They did have these headphones, but at a price of $90, which some other reviewers had mentioned. We also noted that the box included a 3' long red & white cable as well as an adapter, which I didn't see for sure in the product description at Amazon. That cinched the deal and we ordered from Amazon. The 3' cord worked well for us, as they are in a cabinet under the TV and the wire is dropped down to the shelf the sit on.
The item arrived quickly with Prime, but it did seem as if the product box had been repackaged. I did purchase the items as new. The instruction manual was not included, but I easily found one online. Hook-up to my late-model VIzio smart-tv [alas without Bluetooth] went well and the headphones charged in a few hours. As soon as I turned on the TV after the headphones were charged, the headphones automatically synced. I am pretty impressed with the sound quality - I heard background sounds that I hadn't really noticed when just watching TV without them. The sound controls on the side of the headphone are easy to use. I have had no humming or static noises of any kind.
As others said, putting the headphones back in the cradle is a bit of challenge to get the right fit. I found that if I remember to tilt the band of headphones toward the back of the cradle, rather than trying to put them in upright, I make the connection easier. The 'feel' of doing this is improving over time. The headphones do fit snugly, but I have not found them uncomfortable, although I haven't done any marathon viewing. In the end, I am pleased with the quality of the headphones and the cost savings of this item is a great plus.
