Who needs the 12 Days of Christmas? 20 Gadgets of Christmas is our daily column showcasing the best gifts this holiday season.
What it is: A set of wireless headphones for the TV
What it does: Wirelessly transmits the sound of whatever is happening on the TV to the user’s ears.
Why it’s great: When just one person wants to watch TV, the rest of the house can go about their business undisturbed
How much it costs: The Sennheiser RS 120 is $56
Where to get it: Amazon.com
The RS 120 offers quality sound at a price lower than many would expect from wireless headphones and also comes with a charging cradle so users never have to miss a second of the action.
Parents may find Sennheiser’s headphones the perfect gift for their child that likes to stay up late watching movies or playing video games at an obnoxious volume. The RS 120 can also provide quality sound to an elderly relative or friend who is hard of hearing, allowing them to watch TV at their perfect volume without disturbing anyone else in the house.
The RS 120 also has a wide range, stretching up to 328 feet from its receiver and allowing users to continue to listen to their programs no matter where they may wander in their homes. Reception can penetrate through walls, doors and even reach outside the home, making the RS 120 perfect for users that may want to sit in outside and relax while listening to music without bothering the neighbors.
Audiophiles may want stronger options than the RS 120, and for online gamers, a Turtle Beach gaming headset may better fit their needs. However, the RS 120 may be the best bet for buyers who want a quality wireless headset for everyday use at an affordable price. And for those shoppers buying the headphones for someone they live with, it may be just as much a gift for them as it is for the person they buy it for.
