Headphones for TV viewing

by Thomas Bassetti / June 18, 2015 2:56 PM PDT

I need headphones for TV viewing. I am very hard of hearing. I have a set of RCA WHP141 but they are not loud enough anymore. I need to know how to tell which headphone is best. Most sellers do not give decibel ratings and I do not know what decibel would be best for me. Can anyone help?

I have this wireless headphone where the receiver is, well, you get the idea.


So this one is wireless and I could wire from the receiver to the headphone amp to the headphones.

My wireless headphones are used for TV viewing only. The TV is not equipped with bluetooth. My wireless headphones are Sennheiser model HDR120. Are there any exceptions to wired headphones? I may need to go wired with the amplifier. Any expert information you have would be most helpful. Thank you so much.

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
