TV Headphones For The Hard Of Hearing

TV headphones for the hard of hearing are the ideal way to enjoy your favorite programmes without disturbing others with the high volume you need. In this blog post, we explain their benefits and explore some of the top models available on our web store...

The Power of TV Headphones for the Hard of Hearing

TV headphones, headsets, and listeners can prevent those with hearing loss from missing out on quality television. They let you engage and enjoy the programmes you love. Watching TV and listening to music can be made a pleasurable experience all over again thanks to TV listeners. They can be the real difference between enjoying the TV or continuously missing all the best bits.

Wireless TV Listeners let you listen at the volume that is most comfortable for you without the need to change the volume on the television for other viewers. This means that you, the whole family or your friends can all enjoy the same programme at the right sound levels, all at the same time.

How Do TV Headphones Work?

What makes TV headphones so helpful for those with hearing loss is that they put emphasis on dialogue. They provide enhanced clarity of voice, speech, tone (bass and treble), and different pitches. Our range of wireless TV listeners are designed to help with that ever-present challenge of the volume being too loud for one person and not loud enough for another. 

  • Wireless TV listeners consist of a 'base station' that is attached to your television, computer or music player.
  • An infrared or bluetooth signal then beams the sound to a pair of comfortable headphones.
  • Select the volume you need and enjoy programmes and music at the right sound level for you. 

Different models will have varying levels of amplification with some models amplifying up to 125dB. This is strong enough to let you move without interfering with the quality of the sound. Nonetheless, they all provide the user with their own bespoke volume and tone settings whilst others can continue to watch at their preferred level.

The most important features you need to consider when buying TV headphones

  1. Simple and easy to set up
  2. You don’t want to be presented with any challenges with technology when connecting the TV headphones to your TV, so it's essential that you choose a pair that are simple and easy to set up.


  3. Comfortable and simple to use
  4. Having a product that is comfortable in and around the ears is essential. Most TV headphones also feature straight forward volume and tone controls, making it easy to adjust the volume to your exact preference.


  5. Volume control
  6. The device should feature an accessible volume control with different levels of amplification to suit your needs, depending on your level of hearing loss. The volume of most TV headphones goes up to about 125dB.


  7. Battery life

When buying TV headphones, it's important to consider the battery life and time for recharging. Most devices now offer about 8 hours of continuous in use time, as well as a full charge within about 3 hours.
