    Default Wireless headphones for plugging into a TV

    A friend has asked me about getting some wireless headphones for her husband to use when watching TV - he's hard of hearing and tends to crank the sound so much it drives everyone else out of the room.

    Her TV is a new (few months old) plasma with a 3.5mm headphone jack.

    Can anyone recommend some good, reasonably-priced wireless phones? Circum-aural would probably be best, to help seal out exterior noise.

    TIA

    You'll need TV headphones; wireless ones are obviously only intended for radios.
    When cleaning computer,
    Caution not to water the electric part
    Or the computations will be meaningless.

    I bought a set of new Sennheiser (sp?) wireless headphones on TradeMe. They are brilliant.

    Yes... that is why it it best to get a set of IR headphones which can work from the audio out RCA plugs.

    HN had some cheap Philips ones last week for around $60

    No, not with my Sennheiser's, but they are connected through the amplifier.

    SWMBO can listen to the TV speakers or mute them as she requires, but whatever she does, I can listen on my own, or crank up the volume in my own little world. My ears are a bit stuffed from years of snorkel and scuba diving, so sometimes I need the volume up a bit more than she does, and this way we have the best of both worlds. The older I get, the more difficulty I have in "hearing" what Americans are saying when they pretend to speak English. I find a bit more volume helps then too.
