The Best TV Headphones


Hammacher Schlemmer

These wireless TV headphones earned The Best rating from the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute because they had unmatched sound quality and superior range. Panelists lauded The Best TV Headphones for having “the best overall sound,” “great right/left ear separation,” and transmitting “very lifelike voices.” Panelists were critical of lesser models that produced dialogue that was “a little muted” and subpar sound effects. The Best model received clear, crisp stereo sound up to 165' away from its radio-frequency transmitter, unlike lesser headphones that experienced distortion at 33'. While other headphones were “uncomfortable and heavy,” The Best model has soft velour earcups and an adjustable head strap that made them comfortable to wear for long periods. The Best model automatically adjusts the volume of dialogue to ensure words are heard over a film’s score or sound effects, volume and left/right balance are easily adjusted on the earcups, and the transmitter connects to a TV, stereo, or DVD player with the included adapters. Transmitter plugs into a TV's RCA output or 3.5mm headphone jack with included cables. Provides up to 16 hours of use after a 24-hour charge via AC. 9" H x 8" W x 3 1/2" D. (12 oz.)
