Wireless TV Headphones  - Which Ones Are Best?

A great application for wireless headphones is using them for watching TV. Whether it's a matter of not bothering anyone around you or helping someone who has hearing problems, they can be  incredibly useful. Our wireless headphones selection provides plenty of options to choose from, so let's have a look at the three best for watching.

Sennheiser RE120 Wireless Open-Back Headphones

The Re120 is a supra-aural wireless headphone system that used FM (frequency modulation) to transmit the audio signal. The unit consists of an FM transmitter and a receiver - the transmitter also acts as a charger for the headset, which uses two rechargeable NiMH batteries included in the box. This set connects to devices through analog inputs, which can either be a headphone socket, SCART, or phone RCA. Thankfully these connections can be found on most TVs.

The R@130 provides great value for the money as sound quality is surprisingly good for an FM set, spacious and smooth with plenty of bass power. Due to the use of FM the range is up to 100 meters and the signal can even go through walls. The volume level and other control elements are conveniently located on the side of the headset for easy use. As a plus, the transmitter is also wall mountable.

TV Ears 2.3 Voice Clarifying Wireless System

The TV Ears 2.3 wireless set uses infrared technology to transmit the signal to the receiver, which in this case is a stethoscope-like headset. The receiver goes into the ear providing the user with good isolation and despite the relatively deep insertion, it is surprisingly comfortable thanks to foam ear tips. Due to the infrared transmission, the sound is clear with no background humming. As with all infrared units, the transmitter and the receiver do have to be in line of sight otherwise the signal can cut out.

As with the Sennheiser RS120, the transmitter also acts as a charger for the headsets but in this case it can charge up to two at the same time. The set is highly recommended for the hearing impaired because of built-in voice clarifying circuitry. that elevates speech above the background noise. The TV Ears2.3 connects to analog audio outputs, in case you want to have the TV speakers turned up while using the headset, make sure either the TV SCART or RCA phono outputs are used. This will allow you to set the volume of the speakers separately from the headset.
