iWave HF-500 Wireless Headphones

If you want to watch TV or listen to music late at night without disturbing anyone then wireless headphones are a must.  All you do is plug the transmitter to your TV/mp3 player/etc then scan for the signal with your headphones and that’s it.

The HF-500 can be used to transmit audio from most sources.  It can be used as a monitoring device.  It can be used as a mic for your PC.  It can also be used to pick up FM radio stations.

When in monitoring mode you basically use its built in mic to send you the audio it picks up.  Good for spying on people or as a baby monitor from another room.

In PC chat mode, it can be used as mic for your PC.

Hit the Scan button a few times and it’ll scan through radio stations to listen to.

I use these headphones primarily in the living room.  My LCD TV is 12 feet away and mounted on the wall.  Having a 12 ft wire across my living room is not an option.  Wireless headphones are perfect for this.

The HF-500 comes with adapters to hook up to red/white RCA connectors that are on TV’s.   It comes with a RCA to stereo 3.5mm connector found in most MP3 players.  The transmitter can run on 2×1.5v AAA or a 4.5v adapter (not included).  The headphones run on 2xAAA’s as well.

Sound quality is decent.  It’s like FM radio so nothing spectacular.  Sometimes there is a bit of static interference but nothing that is too annoying. I can walk around the house too. I can go to the kitchen and the audio signal is still strong.

It’s good enough for me for watching TV and playing games at night.  For less than $20, it’s a bargain.   If you want better quality, you’ll have to spend a few hundred.  So I think for the price, it’s good value.

    My granddaughter got this unit (iwave HF500 wireless headphone set)for Christmas. However, we can only get it to receive fm radio when trying to set it to listen to tv… There is no phone number to call for help/troubleshooting with this device. The website only has an email for problems, which I have already done. We are waiting for a reply.

    These directions are for those that can’t figure out how to locate the battery compartment for the headphones!

    I had this problem this morning and my father and I found the answers without the instruction manual. The instructions that I was able to locate for the Iwave 500, were not correct; at least not for my set up. The trick is this, the ear opposite the scan button is where the batteries go. After some trial and error, we discovered that there is a battery compartment located on the ear opposite the scan button. To get to the compartment, you have to slide down on the ear. If you look close enough you’ll see that there is a circular break in the plastic which will allow you to push down, away from the strap which holds the earphone on your ear.
    Believe me, It took my father an I an hour to achieve success. We unscrewed all the screws on the one ear, the ear that the online instructions told us to look at, and it was the incorrect ear. Upon unscrewing the second ear, we achieved success.
    My headphones are all black, with a red RCA wire and a black headphone jack wire. Good luck with the insanely cheap, insanely difficult headphones that I have not tested yet to see if the will pick up a signal! Thanks…

    These directions are for Iwave 700’s. The battery compartment on the 500s is on the side with the scan button!

    DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!! I made a purchase on them and paid my money, and over a month later, still no heaphones came. I emailed them and they basically told me we forgot to put out your order. Woops! So I finally get my headphones in the mail a few days later and GUESS WHAT!? They don’t even fricking work!! How wonderful! I emailed the company and they told me too bad my loss pretty much. They screwed me over and said they were not gonna help in any way. Beware of this company, and think it through before you buy from these scammers. Also, when I got the headphones, they were made of cheap plastic and were nowhere near decent quality. Again, don’t take the risk in buying from these a*******. They send you sh*t products and then refuse to help you when you get their non-working crap.
