How's that for an oxymoron?
Let me explain, I'm looking for a pair of headphones for my mother who is hearing impaired (not deaf though). As she has gotten older, she has trouble hearing conversation in movies and TV shows. I bought her a pair of these things I saw on TV, called TV Ears, and sent them to her to see if they help. She said they did help but the problem is that my dad doesn't have a hearing problem and watches the TV normally, so the conflicting noise (from the TV Ears and the normal speakers) makes it hard for my mother when they watch together.
So now I am looking for a pair of closed wireless headphones. Something that she can use with the normal TV sound setup on and it will still isolate her. One would think this would be easy, but closed is not used in any descriptions of headphones at Amazon. Its very frustrating.
Does anyone have any recommendations? I am not looking for anything audiophile, as my mom is hearing impaired and that would be a waste. These are strictly for movies/TV. I was looking at the Sennheiser RS-110 and RS-120 but I can't figure out if they are closed or not. I guess my budget is under $60, but its not a hard point. However I do not want to break the bank on good headphones, as any sound quality would be falling on deaf ears (ha!). However, something durable and something not too complex so that the neighbor's kid can set it for them and not have to do any maintenance on it would be preferred.
