Need advice on selecting good headphone for hard of hearing

by jevenew / October 20, 2006 7:59 AM PDT

I am looking for a headphone that can be used by a person who is hard of hearing, to listen to TV at a volume level that is comfortable for others. I have read about some of the ads for TV Ears, but have no personal knowledge of the product.
I would like the product to have a separate user volume control, a mute might be nice, and it would have to be compatible with legacy equipment. I have a Zenith console TV, with directv TIVO, and Sony DVD/VHS combo deck.
Any advice or personal experience with this type of product would be appreciated.
