1.Sennheiser RS 120 – Best Wireless TV Headphones 2017
We are a big Sennheiser fan,no doubt on that but we sometimes hesitate to include the low price products in our list and same happened with this one, but later on as suggested by our viewers and looking at the popularity rate of RS120 we decided to give it a try .Perfect pricing,powerful features,great out of the box design, all these excellent features made this tv headphone earn the first spot on our list of best wireless headphones for tv.This can be a perfect one for anyone looking for a budget oriented yet excellent headphone,plus trust from such a big brand will never make you regret due to after sales services.
Our Detailed Review:
These are certainly the best tv headphones in our review and there are actually several reasons to it.Equipped with advanced technology, they are from the world renowned brands plus they come at a very low price which makes it easy to afford by every consumer.The wireless technology is exceptionally great, it truly offers you a connectivity up to 100 meters so that in case you are having a good time lying on the sofa and still want to hear the clear sound then you will never face any problem similar to sound brokage.Battery installed does a great job providing a range of upto 20 hours, you can expect a range of up to 2-3 days assuming that you don’t invest more than 5 hours daily watching TV.These are the open back headphones which allow the sound to pass freely and surrounding sounds to enter easily.We can’t refer to it as an ambient sound technology but still, it creates a good balance between external and internal sounds.The headphones weigh dead less and will barely make you feel that you got something on top of your head
Don’t be confused between the wireless Rf technology and Bluetooth technology, The Sennheiser RF 120 doesn’t come equipped with Bluetooth in any case,so if you are planning to use them for multipurpose like connecting with your iPhones or other smartphones in spare time then you would not be able to do that.These are ideally built for TV and performs the perfect job when used with them.
- Exceptional Price to performance ratio
- Upto 300 feet of insane wireless connectivity
- Interference free channels for clear reception
- 20 hours of long operational battery life
- No bluetooth connectivity for multipurpose use.
RS 160 can save you some very good bucks if you are gonna go for it.Being the best selling wireless Tv headphone over Amazon,we bet you will not find a reason for not buying it.
2.Sony MDRRF985RK – With Noise reduction Technology
Sony has been in the market from quite a time and need less to say it is one of the most trusted brand when it comes to anything related to sound devices.Be it headphones,Speakers or music system in smartphones , the quality is always excellent.And today here, we are featuring a great wireless TV headphone which is the best from sony and one of most cost effective TV headphone.With that said lets dive in into the specifications of this great wireless TV headset.
Though equipped with standard 40mm drivers the headphones may still feel like a bulky stuff to some users and the reason to it is that manufacturer have added the noise cancellation technology which would not work perfectly if the ears will remain uncovered,plus if the drivers would be small the consumers will face the problem of sound leakage which might be an issue sometimes in public place. So Yes! it’s bulky but its on purpose.
Our Detailed Review:
If you are looking for a branded wireless tv headphones which also perform well on the terms of noise cancellation then this would work great but if you come down to getting the perfect headphone for TV with excellent build quality then you might be certainly disappointed. With the matte black finish on top manufacturer have tried to give it a great look but at some point, you may feel like they failed to do so in terms pf build quality, However, if you look at the price point of this TV headphone then you might ignore these minor problems.Also it comes with a connectivity range of 50m which will never let you into the interference issue.Setting it up is dead easy with any TV or FM radio, plus with 900mhz frequency the sound is very clear and brilliant and we just can’t say any negative things on that aspectalso if you have been troubled by battery issues on your previous headphone then it is not going to be the same case case with this wireless TV headphone.
- Automatic tuning for optimum signal reception
- Superior Noise Cancellation technlogy
- excellent battery life of upto 25 hours on a single charge.
- Low transmittance range
- Not so good overall build quality
The headphone is one of the lowest priced wireless TV headphone from sony and has really performed very well in our trial.So If you don’t want to compromise in terms of features and also flying under the budget then this could be a steal deal for you.We assure you that it is never going to disappoint you when it comes to sound quality or price range.
3.Bose Sound Link 2 -Best Bluetooth Tv Headphones
When its Bose we do not dare to doubt.Sound Link 2, It might be expensive but its perfect, Deep immersive sound, best in class EQ, plus a neat design on top which is enough to evoke a user.Use it with your TV or with your phone, the advanced Bluetooth technology loaded in it makes it easy to use with all of the music devices in the market.The company has been existing since a long time in the market and has been known for producing excellent gadgets including headphones and speakers and we do agree that they are expensive manufacturers but if we compare the quality with the price then everything they depict is worth .
Our Detailed Review:
Bose Sound Link 2 can’t be compared with any other headphone in our list as the technology on which the other TV headphone and this wireless Tv headphone run is different.Bose Sound Link 2 doesn’t feature RF transmission and that is its plus point as this allows the easy connectivity to Smart TV’s.The sound Link 2 features intense,immersive and improved EQ with best in class performance.As mentioned this Tv headphone makes it easy to switch between multiple devices connected simultaneously.Not to be mentioned but this tv headphone do comes with a mic system allowing you to take calls on the Go.
- Unsurpassed Crisp Sound
- Convenient Physical controls over drivers for seamless switching
- 15 hours of excellent Battery range
- Latest wireless Bluetooth technology
- No Cons
Pricing is a bit high as it comes from leading brands whom you can blindly trust when going for any sound device plus it is packed with some great features .So If you want to get a multipurpose headphone to use with Tv and other devices running on Bluetooth then this would end up being an excellent choice both in short term and long term period.
4.Sennheiser RS180 Digital Wireless – Best Open Back Tv headphone
Though RS 180 is the younger sibling to RS185 still it is no less than the newer model.It is an open backed classy set of tv headphone which would definitely be an eye candy or you.The headphone works on same RF technology and is a quite a powerful one.Though this wireless tv headphone is very pricey as compared to other tv headphones in our list and if not easily affordable by everyone but still we believe giving a big shot for this would end up being beneficial in both long and short run.
Looking at the features even a non-audiophile can say how great this headphone is.Great Sound, multiple connectivities, high connectivity range, this little beast has got everything in there.So let’s move one step ahead and have a look at our detailed review.
Our Detailed review:
Rs 180 comes equipped with a bigger and better battery life which not just lasts well but also performs well.The design of the headphone is kept as an open back, unlike other Sennheiser tv headphones, giving an extra hand over the other models.It comes with the standard audio jack of 3.5mm and no 6.3mm jack, unlike other few tv headphones.They come equipped with automatic level control for the optimum sound level so the audio never hits you in the ear.Last but not the least, the audio and bass performance is super and clear plus with 320feet of connectivity range you will never notice a break even if you roam around the house unless you have a 2500sqft of the yacht.
- Multi receiver transmission for upto 4 device connectivity
- Automatic audio level control
- Excellent design and light weight
- Long Battery and connectivity range
- Not So Comfortable for long term use
- High price Point
These are definitely some pricey stuff but every penny spend on it is worth it.The model is also a tough competition to other Sennheiser tv headphones regardless the price it carries.If you are an audiophile and looking for some open back tv headset then this is the one.
5.Sennheiser RS 170 – With Up to 4 Multiple Headphones Connectivity
Sennheiser by far is the most popular brand when it comes to wireless tv headphones.We can’t say same about Bluetooth headphones for TV but it is definitely ruling the market when it comes down to RF technology.RS170 is a mid-priced headset with some great features like multi-receiver transmission and dynamic bass.Overall this is a power-packed tv headphone by sennheiser which we believe is worth your attention.
Little heating has been the problem of Sennheiser is most of the TV headphones.The headphone may start making you feel little warm near the ear if you are going to use it for longer term but again looking at the comfort level it provides,You are going to feel it rare situation and if you are going to use them in intervals and not continuously for several hours then we don’t see any problem over there
Our Detailed Review:
Sennheiser Rs 170 is by far the best mid-budget tv headphone after the low priced RS 120.Talking about the features it does comes with multiple headphone connectivity option through which a complete family of up to 4 people can connect 4 headphones to the same audio source be it Tv or Home theater.We do have seen other headphone from the same brand with options up to 2 headphones connectivity but this once seems to be a step ahead than it.Turning on the surround and Bass has been made extremely easy with the buttons on top which also include separate buttons for volume controls.With the use, neodymium ferrous magnet the manufacturer have completely focused on clear sound reproduction so that you never feel like you compromised in terms of audio clarity.The design is similar to other RF headphones with the branding on top of drivers and overall this tv headphone has come out as a great looking headphone.
- Multi-receiver transmission allowing up to 4 people connectivity
- Easy to switch surround sound and dynamic bass modes
- Closed back design with detailed audio reproduction
- Minor heating of drivers after continuous use for couple of hours
- Control buttons are difficult to discren
If you are somehow stuck in mid budget and want a device which can be used by complete family at a time then you should give this a chance plus the trust factor from the popular brand will most likely meet all of your expectations
6.Sennheiser RS 175 – With Multiple Modes for Bass and Surround Sound
Sennheiser RS 175 is another addition to the RS series which is a closed back circumaural headphone with some brilliant features and build quality.Sennheiser strated from RS 120 and went up higher both in terms of feature and quality.To the end of the line we do have RS195 but we are not going to mention that in our list so as to keep the variation plus we found RS175 more superior as compared to RS195 and RS185 plus you get to pay more for the newer version.
Our detailed Review:
No doubt the Rf series from Sennheiser is the best series of wireless TV headphones and same we can say about this one too.You are high connectivity range so that you can easily enjoy music from your bed while the Tv is far away on your wall.The headphone comes with some new options which were not there is previous tv headphones mentioned above that are options to change virtual surround modes and bass controls the control buttons to which are on the driver itself so that you can use the features when you badly need them.it is multipurpose headphone which can be used with any device having an analog output [ Left, Right RCA or 3.55 audio port], which makes it super compatible with smartphones.The design and build quality are top notches and the work on comfort quality is also fine, You do get cushion pads on both drivers for comfort to ears and on headbands so that you don’t go through any problem when using them on top of the head.You do get an excellent battery life of 18 hours so that you don’t have to plug it in often.
In the initial days, you might face some problem with the control buttons.The buttons are sticky and almost flat on the surface so if would be confusion for to press the right button from initial use.We during the reviews tried to increase the volume but ended up decreasing it and then tried for the second time.Not a big issue but still need to be addressed also a long-term use of these tv headphone will start sweating on the sides of the ear as they are designed to be sweat proof and you will start feeling some heat around but again that’s an issue you will notice when you use them for longer period
- Upto 100m of Connectivity/Delivery range
- Transmitter Supports both Analog and Digital inputs
- Multi Headphone connectivity upto 2 wireless TV headphones
- Dedicated Bass and Virtual Surround sound modes
- It take some time to get familiar with inline control buttons
- Cushion Cups could have been more softer
The price tag is set to be in mid-budget which would be a good investment for such a power packed headphone.It comes with options of a pack of 2 headsets and 1 headset so that if you are a couple and want to enjoy your TV series together then you can go for that.
7.RIF6 Digital Wireless – No Sound Leakage from Large Drivers
RIF6 Digital wireless from RIF6 is a very popular wireless tv headphone in the market and comes at a very decent price.If you have been reading our review,you must have noticed that we focus much on the price factor and thats because we dont want to keep you in darkness,we instead make it clear about the price so that in case you have a fixed budget then you follow up with the rest of the review according to that.RIF6 is an electronic company known for producing headphone,projectors and other electrical devices and after having so much experience in field they have cameup with this great tv wireless headphone.

This Tv headphones do not comes from a very renowned brand but features offered by the company as such price tag made it one of the best wireless Tv headphone in our list.Talking about the build quality of the headphone, it perfectly builds both is terms of design and wheel as comfort quality.The ear cups are comfortable to wear for a longer period and do not cause any heating or sweating around the ears.The sound quality is brilliant and there can’t be any negative thoughts about it.However, this tv headphone misses the noise cancellation feature but the extremely fit drivers will barely make you feel about that missing feature.The headphone support fast charging and yo do get an extra battery for future use.
We have got the review from users complaining about the auto turn off feature,which automatically turns of the headphone after 6 minutes if no sound is transmitted.So to make it clear here,that feature is important for wireless Tv headphone to save battery , as the headphone is connected to RF transmitter all the time,this feature helps in saving the battery when there is no use.
- Equipped with Smart Feature like Led indicator and On Ear Controls
- Crystal Clear Sound with frequency ratio of 30HZ – 20kHZ

- Sound is very true and clear
- Noise Cancellation is the shining point of this TV headphone
- Very good on price point

- Controls are quite clumsy and confusing
Due to its low price and high-end feature the headphone has become quite popular among customers, So In case you can not spend a lot of money on a TV headphone then you should consider this one.

No doubt you are getting some excellent sound quality and bass enhancement in it but it still misses the noise cancellation feature which may not bother you when you are at home using them with Tv but in case you are going to use them with your mobile phones then you might feel like you need that feature.However, we still believe that extra bass will decrease the surrounding noise to much extent.
