What to Look for in Wireless TV Headphones

At this time and age, it’s rare to meet someone who doesn’t have a TV at home. Watching the TV is one of the best ways to relax after a long and tiring day at work. You can watch your favorite TV programs, catch up with news around the world, maybe even watch a movie or two as you doze off into the night.

With that being said, considered getting wireless TV headphones. If you’re completely new to the concept of using wireless headphones for your TV enjoyment, today you are in luck. You’re going to find out that these wireless units aren’t a luxury at all—though some units’ prices may make you think otherwise. Maybe they are a luxury at some level, but if you think about it, a headphone like this is something you need more than you’d care to admit.

Case in Point: Have you ever found yourself having a hard time hearing what’s on TV no matter how high you turn up the volume? Granted that this probably doesn’t happen to you all the time (unless you live right next to a club), you’re still going to want to have one when you need it.

And what about wanting to watch something when everybody else is asleep? Wouldn’t you want to have something for that too? 

A wireless headphone for television is also great for the freedom that it offers. Imagine not being tethered with a short cord to the TV anymore. You can freely walk around and be anywhere in the room as you fix yourself a snack or open the door. Wouldn’t that be great? 

So you see, a wireless headphone for watching TV is definitely what you need for movies that require your full attention. And now that we have made ourselves quite clear, it’s time to find out what features you need to look for with this type of wireless device.

Make sure that it’s Compatible with your TV

Most modern TVs have both analogue and digital signal connections, but some older models only have just one of the two. Before you purchase your own wireless headphone, check out what type of connection you have on your TV, and get a pair similar to what it has.

Charging Base Station

Having a charging base station would ensure that your headphones are charged when you need it. This is also one other way for you to make sure it doesn’t get misplaced.

Comfort and Versatility

It’s important to determine which ones you’re more comfortable with: In-ear headphones, or over-the-head headphones. While wireless in-ear headphones may seem ideal, there aren’t a lot of them designed for movie-watching. Most of them have Bluetooth Connectivity more suitable for music listening.

You have 2 choices for over-the-head headphones: On-the-ear and over-the-ear. While the former can isolate noise better, the latter is more comfortable as it is lighter in weight.

Quality of Sound and Range of Transmission

There is no doubt that the quality of the sound in the headphones is important, especially since wireless devices have a tendency to get interrupted by other signals. But there are plenty of units out there that offer superior wireless connection in spite of possible interruption. Make sure you also ask about it before making the purchase.

You also need to know how far you can go from the TV while you’re using them. It would be better if you find out how big your floor area is before you go headphone-hunting as this eliminates second-guessing when you’re asking for features and specs. 

Battery Life

High-quality headphones can last up to thirty hours or more before you need to charge the batteries again, while generic headphones can only provide 20 to 25 hours. It may not be much, but that just means you still got ten more hours of uninterrupted audio—roughly five to seven movies before you need to recharge once more. 


It is important to know that these devices are available in a range of prices. The cheapest is around $20, with the most expensive ones reaching as much as $200 to $250 dollars. It is easy to become overwhelmed by your choices, especially when you’re being shown the options you have available. They all look the same!

The best thing to do is set a budget—a realistic one, if that. If you’re planning to shop in electronic stores, make sure you don’t just “ask around.” Do your own research, look for the best deals online. Mix it up a little. It pays to get to know products and read customer reviews before you make up your mind.
