Buying the Best Wireless Headphones for TV

Having headphones, the user watches TV without disturbing other household members. Today, wired models are replaced by wireless ones – they are convenient, as they allow you to move around the room without getting tangled in wires and without removing the headset from your ears. But before you buy wireless headphones for your TV, carefully read the models and selection criteria.

Criteria for choosing headphones for your TV

Manufacturers offer a variety of types of wireless headphones, differing in parameters, principle of operation, and design. When buying a headset wirelessly, it is recommended to evaluate it not only in terms of price and design, but also in terms of technical characteristics.

Operating principle

All wireless headphones have one thing in common – they don’t have a plug or wires. According to the principle of operation, the following types of headphones are distinguished:

  • Headphones. They mate with Smart TV due to radio waves, but the sound quality deteriorates when extraneous frequencies appear. Also, concrete walls interfere with the propagation of radio waves – if you leave the room, the quality of the connection / sound drops.
  • With infrared sensor. They work on the same principle as television remote controls. Such headphones have a certain range – they pick up signals at a distance of up to 10 m from the source (if there are no obstacles in the path of the pulse).
  • With bluetooth. Such models are capable of receiving a signal from a distance of 10-15 m. The advantage of such headphones is the ability to calmly do all sorts of household chores while moving around the house.
  • Wi-Fi headset. It has the best technical performance compared to other wireless models. But there is also a minus – the high cost, so so far they are not in great demand among Russian consumers. Another drawback is signal distortion due to bad weather and the operation of electrical appliances.

Construction type

All headphones are divided according to their design features, each of which may be important or decisive when choosing a model. Types of wireless earbuds:

  • Plug-in. They are inserted directly into the auricle. These models do not put a lot of stress on the ear.
  • In-ear. On their body there are special ear pads (the part of the earphone in contact with the listener’s ears), which are directly inserted into the ear canals. Allows you to transmit very loud sound, isolating the hearing from extraneous noise. Minus – ears get tired quickly.
  • Overhead. Equipped with a bow, with the help of which they are put on the head. They are better than the previous types in terms of sound quality and autonomy. Minus – weigh more than plug-in and in-channel models.

Autonomy

The capacity of the battery directly affects the duration of the headphones’ operation on a single charge. Typically plug-in and in-ear models can operate for 4-8 hours. On-ear headphones last longer – 12-24 hours.

If the headphones are used only for watching TV, then autonomy does not matter much. But if they are used outside the home, where there is no way to recharge the accessory, autonomy comes to the fore.

Other parameters

Many buyers do not pay attention to the technical characteristics. To evaluate headphones according to these criteria, you must have minimal knowledge or familiarize yourself with the ranges of indicators in advance. This will allow you to find a model with suitable capabilities. Wireless headphones specifications:

  • Volume. To comfortably perceive the sound, you need models with a volume level of 100 dB or more.
  • Frequency range. The parameter indicates the level of the reproduced frequencies. For listening to TV programs, this characteristic does not matter, it is important only for music lovers. The standard value is 15-20,000 Hz.
  • Control type. Most often, wireless headphones have buttons that adjust the volume, switch songs, etc. There are models with built-in microphones, in which there are buttons for accepting and canceling calls. Usually TWS headphones have touch control.
  • Resistance. The strength of the input signal depends on this characteristic. It is recommended to select the standard value – 32 Ohm.
  • Power. It should not be higher than the sound power of the TV, from which the headphones will receive the signal. Otherwise, the headset will break after the first turn on. The power range is 1-50,000 MW. Better to take a model with the same power as the TV.
  • Distorted sound. How the headphones distort the incoming sound depends on this parameter. It is necessary to choose models with the lowest level of deformation.
  • Weight. The heavier the accessory, the more difficult it is to wear it over time. Therefore, it is important to consider the duration of its use. The optimal weight for earbuds and in-ear models is considered to be at the level of 15-30 g, for on-ear headphones – 300 g.

TWS (True Wireless Stereo) – wireless stereo headphones that are not connected by a wire either to the gadget or to each other.

Pros and cons of wireless headphones

Before choosing a wireless headphone model, it is useful to familiarize yourself with their advantages and disadvantages. Pros:

  • no wires limiting movement while watching TV;
  • better sound insulation than wired analogs – due to the massive structure;
  • better microphone noise reduction than a wired headset.

Wireless headphones also have a number of disadvantages:

  • sound worse than wired headphones;
  • need regular “recharging”.
