Deal of the Day: Pioneer SE-DIR800C HDPH Dolby Digital 5.1 Wireless Headphones
I've mentioned it before but I'm really a big fan of wireless headphones. In fact, I prefer to watch TV with headphones because it gives me the ability to block out outside noises and really become involved in what I'm watching. The key to to wireless headphones is to find a pair that can really handle the sound output from your TV or home theater system. One of the best sets of headphones you can look at is Pioneer SE-DIR800C HDPH Dolby Digital 5.1 Wireless Headphones. According to Amazon:
Amazon.com Product Description
Don't let a sleeping family keep you from your new action adventure movie, DTS 5.1 concert, or online video game tournament by setting up these Pioneer wireless surround sound headphones. The SE-DIR800C phones, which connect to any 5.1-channel source--including a DVD player, game console, digital cable box, or satellite receiver--are equipped with Dolby Headphone technology, which produces up to five virtual loudspeakers in your head by directing and reflecting the sound from each channel. The effect is a stunning surround experience, far more dimensional than with typical headphones, and, some say, even better than with a high-performance surround speaker system. The audio is natural sounding and doesn't cause "listener fatigue" as do many other headphones. The phones also work with a variety of surround formats, including Dolby Digital, DTS, and Dolby Surround.
Most conveniently, the SE-DIR800C phones are completely cordless. The small wireless transmitter connects to your source (DVD player, game console, etc.) and broadcasts a clear, strong signal via infrared technology to the headphones. Thanks to the wireless technology, you won't snag a headphone cord on furniture, your dog, your glasses, or anything else.
The phones feature a trio of "virtual room" presets from which to choose. The options actually reproduce the sound of a playback system in up to three different listening environments based on the acoustic measurements of real rooms. The small room setting (DH1) re-creates a small, well-damped room with very little reverberation that's perfect for both movies and music-only recordings, while the medium room (DH2) is a more acoustically live (or "wet") room that's well suited to both formats as well (with moderate reverberation). Meanwhile, the large room setting (DH3) offers a bigger sound, more like the audio within a concert hall or movie theater.
You just can't go wrong with headphones that incorporate Dolby Digital Surround Sound. Be sure to check out the deal at Amazon.
