Hi, I have an old samsung smart tv which dooes not have bluetooth. I am running an old pair of Sony MRD RF865 R h/phones. The tv built in speakers being terrible I wired in a pair of speakers. My h/phones are connected with 3.5mm h/phone jack plug and speakers with optical leads.
I have started looking for a replacement pair and am shocked at the number of bluetooth h/phones. I feel I am looking for something from the stone age. I just want a wifi pair that sit very neatly upon a charging dock and are connected by the use of my antiquated leads and plugs.
I am hard of hearing so good sharp sound quality is essential. I have looked at Avantree and Artiste at around £120.00 but neither jumps out shouting bye me, bye me.
I have looked at the Sony MRD-RF895RK which I assume is a better model of that which I already have. It looks good but amazon feedback is not that brilliant on the sound quality. That sells for around the £100.00.
I would very much appreciate opinions from anyone who has the Sony 895 or another set of h/phones with which you are delighted.
It would appear that my connection system can be used on some bluetooth h/phones but that is far too confusing for me. Many thanks jack

Would only be a case of plugging in a Bluetooth transmitter instead the FM one Jack.

Can understand you wanting to stick with what you know though - not least because you get no latency issues with FM transmission.
Might be worth looking at Sennheiser equivalents like these:
As ever, perhaps take reviews with a pinch of salt.
For example:
First review - 1 star, the worst headphones he's ever had.
Second review - 5 star, 'perfect for the hard of hearing'

Worth looking at Sennheiser equivalents (though they might cost more than you want to pay).
Hi Gray, Many thanks for that, food for thought.
