While consumer video technologies evolve to Ultra HD, 4K and HDR, the audio side of the consumers' regular TV watching experience has remained more or less the same, unless you have a full multichannel surround sound system. 

Then there are the common acoustics issues present in most homes. And in some instances, people suffer from hearing issues that make the problem that much worse.

Helping to solve some of these issues is Sennheiser with its new RS 2000 and RS 5000 headphones. 

Sennheiser's two TV headphones are designed to be ergonomically friendly with attractive, modern aesthetics.

"These next generation devices focus on giving listeners an intensified TV sound experience. They offer excellent audio quality and clearer speech, plus wireless flexibility and greater comfort, all in an elegant and ease-to-use solution," says Irene Struber, head of portfolio management audiology, Sennheiser. "Those who love to enjoy life to the fullest can now continue to demand more, even as their personal hearing needs change."

Users can tailor the RS 2000 and RS 5000 TV headphones to meet their individual needs through controls such as volume and balance. The products' LED indicators communicate battery status and the operational status of the headphones.
