Own Zone Review
Own zone is reviewed to have a fairly comfortable fit but poor volume control and reception. The sound quality is not good. One of the customer had following to say about Own zone – “Gets a very loud buzzing rendering them useless. When they do work, a noticeable background hum is very annoying. I do not recommend and i am returning it”. One of the big drawback is that own zone headphones eats through battery like crazy. In addition to it, when the batteries die (no warning) it makes this horrible, really loud fog horn sound in your ears. Also there were lots of complains of constantly experiencing static noise from the own zone headphone, to which one of the user said that If you are not in the direct line of sight with the transmitter, you will get a lot of static. Though not sure if this is a temporary solution to the static noise or fix it.
The Own Zone headphone is ok, it has good range as per the reviewers but you need to invest in rechargeable batteries. Own Zone is a nice idea and good form factor. However they do not work well, continuously have to re-scan and they pick up everything but what you want. Once turned off they have to re-scan everything again. Also if you have older model television own zone headphone will not connect. Some of the customers who purchased Own zone could not connect to the tv or the headphones were not working with the tv sets they had. So make sure if you are buying the own zone headphones they connect to the television model you have. Another user of Own zone said that it is a Cheap product. If you’re going to use wireless TV headphones, you will most likely want to purchase better
set. I do not recommend.
