First off thank you for reading this and I appreciate any feedback. I am wanting to buy an over the ear Headphone appropriate for my 97 y/o Mother. Features I am concerned with:
_ Charging station simple/easy to align headphone on. She is not able to use micro USB.
_ Accepts 3.5mm jack input, she is able to switch input from a line that comes from a TV and CD player and a line to a hand held Sonic microphone she carries for conversation. 3.5 plug needs to have easy access.
_ Volume is important along with clarity in the speech range.
_ Bluetooth is not needed. Less buttons and controls the better.
_Price range, it’s for Mom so rather not limit that, but she’s not going to be mixing soundtracks nor wanting paper weights on her head,so in some ways less may be better.
She has been using a $30, on the ear, headphone set and I am hoping that a better quality, over the ear, set with some noise cancellation and a little amplification will let her hear more. Her current setup already beats her hearing aids that were just purchased a couple years ago.
Any suggestions for a new Headphone will be appreciated and if you know of a hand held mic that is better than the Sonic SuperEar SE5000 I would appreciate that also.
