  • Headphones for watching TV for the hard of hearing

    When one person in the household is hard of hearing it can be difficult to reach a compromise over the volume level when watching TV.  It's a common problem and TV Ears headphones provide the solution.

    While using TV Ears headphones, the television volume can be lowered or muted without affecting the volume of the sound through the TV Ears headphones.

    "TV ears has made a such a big difference in my life. I now watch TV and films and hear every word better than with my expensive hearing aids."

    - Mr J Barrett

    Why TV Ears?

    With TV Ears headphones you can set your own volume and tone controls while others can listen at a comfortable level, or even not at all (with the TV speakers muted).

    TV Ears headphones are tuned specifically to enhance speech, which makes then perfect for helping you understand dialogue in films and TV shows.

    About The TV Ears Headset

    The lightweight (1.6 oz/46 grams) ergonomically designed wireless headset rests under the chin providing maximum comfort. It won’t mess your hair or get hot on your head. Resting under your chin makes the volume and tone controls convenient and easy to adjust. With an output power of 120 decibels, TV Ears headphones are strong enough for people with hearing loss. The TV Ears transmitter easily attaches to your television, satellite, or cable box and the base unit can charge up to two headsets at one time.

    The TV Ears 2.3 system works with Plasma and LCD flat screen TVs and in the presence of fluorescent lighting. This system can cover up to 600 sq. ft. TV Ears headsets feature the patented Comply™ Foam TV Ears Tips. TV Ears Tips provide an acoustically sealed chamber with the ear that reduces room noise and provides unparalleled comfort, cleanliness, and clarity for outstanding word discrimination so that television dialogue is clear and understandable.

  • Grado high end headphones - only for audiophiles?

    Grado headphones sometimes get labelled with the term 'audiophile'. The word audiophile may send shivers up your spine, but it's just a word that has been used to describe discerning high end audio enthusiasts who take their music listening very seriously, and Grado headphones do deserve to be taken seriously.

  • High end audio without breaking the bank

    Have you every looked through a HiFi magazine wondering how on earth anyone can afford to pursue an interest in high fidelity audio equipment? The cost of audiophile quality gear can be astronomic. A quick glance through What Hifi magazine and you will soon find a pair of speakers that cost three grand. Ouch!

    How about an alternative to all this expensive HiFi? Imagine owning an audio setup that sounds like it costs thousands of pounds, but actually costs just a few hundred! It’s actually really simple. It’s no secret that the budget route to achieving sonic excellence is via headphones. You really do get dramatically more 'bang for your buck' with headphones.

    Take for example the Sennheiser HD650's Audiophile series headphones. These headphones are widely regarded as the ultimate pair of Sennheisers! The Sennheiser HD650's have an RRP of £329 (approx $650) and you can find them for less than £250 (approx $500). Where would you find a pair of truly audiophile speakers for that kind of money?

    Yes, you can spend thousands of pounds on headphones, but for normal HiFi listening a pair of £300 headphones can offer astonishing levels of detail and audio dynamics. Paired with a good quality headphone amplifier you enter a world of high fidelity audio that would normally cause serious financial trauma.

    Take a look at our broad range of high quality HiFi headphones from Audio-Technica, Sennheiser, Grado and many other top brands at the HiFi Headphones store.

  • Sennheiser Headphones - UK market leader?

    Sennhesier Headphones

    We are a big fan of Sennheiser headphones here at HiFi Headphones. Sennheiser are the without doubt the headphone & earphone company with the largest market share. Their range covers everything from humble ear buds that replace the standard issue Apple earphones, to sports headphones for jogging and cycling, right through to high end full size Hi-Fi models. With a headphone business that includes supplying specialist headphones to helicopter and jet pilots, they really do have it all covered. If you read Sennheiser's marketing blurb they are quite partial to the term 'electroacoustics' to explain what they do.

    So, Sennheiser are market leaders, but are their headphones and earphones any good? Well, yes! In our experience Sennheiser's headphones and earphone are always well made and the sound quality if often excellent, even with the cheaper models. It was once said in the IT industry that you could never be fired for buying IBM computer equipment, well we think that phrase fits well for Sennheiser. If your job depended on it you couldn't go wrong with a Sennheiser headphone purchase!

    One word of warning. Beware of cheap fake Sennheiser headphones! We have seen (and have even been offered) very cheap Sennheiser headphones. These are always fake. Often these rip-off headphones are of the lower end (e.g. CX300 ear bud headphones) and are offered at bargain prices.  These are not genuine Sennheiser's and the quality is very poor.  They can look almost identical to the real thing, but it's not until you actually plug these headphones in and hear how bad the sound quality is that you will realise they are fake.  As always you don't get something for nothing!

    For a wide selection of competitively priced genuine Sennheiser Headphones take a look at the HiFi Headphones store.

  • Why should I upgrade my standard iPod headphones?

    So what's wrong with the standard issue iPod ear bud headphones? They're good enough for mobile listening, aren't they? Well, at Hifi Headphones we've heard this said more than a few times! We'd normally be pretty quick to offer a different opinion :)

    If like many iPod owners you've imagined that your standard headphones are pretty good, then you really have been missing out! Unfortunately Apple chose to supply relatively poor quality ear bud earphones with their little musical marvel. There is a level of detail and audio clarity that is simply missing with these standard issue earphones. We would always recommend upgrading the standard iPod headphones to something with a more musical punch.

    So what are the iPod headphone upgrade options? Below are a some ideas:

    Sennheiser MX 500 ear bud headphones

    If you must stick with ear bud headphones then the Sennheiser MX 500's give good performance and are very competitively priced.

    Sennhesier MX 500 Headphones

    Ultimate Ears super.fi 3 Studio Sound Isolating earphones

    The audio quality on these sound isolating 'ear canal' headphones is light years ahead of the standard iPod ear buds. The Ultimate Ears super.fi 3 Studio headphones give a smooth, even response across the entire audio range and decently-articulate mids and highs. Their bigger brother the Ultimate Ears super.fi 5 Studio's have even better high end response.

    AKG K 26 P foldable headband headphones

    The AKG K 26 P's offer an alternative to the normal in ear varieties, with a neat and tidy foldable head band. The bass responses on these headphones is truly astonishing! The convenient design and killer sound make the AKG K26 P's a serious contender for best portable headphones at this price point.

    Considering an iPod can set you back hundreds of pounds (or euros, dollars, etc), it really is worth investing a little bit extra in a decent set of headphones.

  • Sennheiser Headphones

    Sennheiser headphones invariably offer excellent audio quality, good looks and are generally designed to last.  The HiFi Headphones store holds a large inventory of Sennheiser headphones as well as many other high quality brands.

    Sennheiser are one of the biggest and well known headphone manufacturers with a massive range covering all categories, including wireless headphones, noise cancelling headphones, full size headphones and ever popular in ear sound isolating headphones.

    Sennheiser have a long history in the audio industry making headphones and microphones, but more recently have also become involved in making aircraft systems and telecom's equipment.

    This blog entry provides a brief summary of some of the best Sennheiser headphones on offer from each of the major headphone types.

    The HiFi Headphones store stock a broad range of Sennheiser headphones.

    Sennheiser Full Size Headphones

    Sennheiser HD650 - One of the most highly regarded consumer headphones available at an affordable price is the super smooth sounding Sennheiser HD650. The Sennheiser HD650's are superbly balanced and are perfect for listening to high quality audio sources at home. The open back design and relatively large size means it's not really practical to use the HD650's on the move, but we have heard of HD650's being used mobile with an iPod!

    Sennheiser In Ear Headphones

    Sennheiser CX300 - The Sennheiser CX300 is an excellent first step into the area of sound isolating ear canal headphones. Ear canal headphones generally seal inside the ear canal to keep out external noises, meaning you hear the audio better and can listen at safer volumes.

    The CX300's do not push completely into the ear canal like more expensive models (such as the Ultimate Ears Super.fi 3 Studio or Shure SE110), but do seal over the entrance to the the inner ear. This makes fitting the CX300 a little easier than the real deal.

    Sennheiser Wireless Headphones

    Sennheiser RS130 - The Sennheiser RS130 wireless headphones are currently one of the best sounding wireless headsets under £100. The Sennheiser RS140's are more expensive, and come with closed back earcups to keep noise out and prevent sound leakage. The RS140's closed back earcups can be handy if you don't want to annoy people nearby, but the earcups add their own problems with sound reflections.

    The Sennheiser RS130 headset is definitely the best of the Sennheiser wireless RS range and definitely worth the extra money over the RS120's. The RS130 feels slightly better constructed than the RS120, has ‘over the ear pads’ which are more comfortable and also have an easy to use auto tune feature (the RS120's have to be tuned manually).

    It is truly liberating to be able to listen to your music without wires, it has to be said that audio quality is not as good as an equivalent wired headphone. For example you may notice a background hiss during quiet passages of music. So while it's not possible to claim any of the RS range are audiophile quality sound, but the convenience more than makes up for it!
