May I suggest the CC Internet Radio? No dad should be without one! I have many C Crane products, but like the Internet Radio best, followed by the CC Skywave.
I have difficulty hearing the television at the volume my wife finds comfortable. Any suggestions? (Other than going into another room and installing a second television set)
Hi Kent, I would suggest our In-Line Volume Control cord to give you some extension https://www.ccrane.com/item/acc_audio_volcntrl/search/in-line_volume_control which plugs into our SoftSpeaker-3 Amplified Pillow Speaker With In-Line Volume Control And Sleep Timer https://www.ccrane.com/item/hdp_audio_soft_ps3/100112/softspeaker-3_amplified_pillow_speaker_with_in-line_volume_control_and_sleep_timer. The combination of these will surely give you audio full of clarity with a volume next to your ear you can hear. If you would like to use earbuds vs. the pillow speaker, I suggest CC Buds-Pro In-Ear Earbuds For Talk Radio, Audio Books And Voice Clarity https://www.ccrane.com/item/hdp_audio_cc_budspro/103/cc_buds-pro_in-ear_earbuds_for_talk_radio_audio_books_and_voice_clarity. I hope these are helpful guides to help you be able to hear the TV so you can sit comfortably next to your wife and hear everything she does! If you have any questions, feel free to ring us at 1-800-522-8863 PST M-F 8:15am-5:00pm closed for lunch 12:00- 1:15pm.
Thanks for the reply! I do appreciate your kind response and am wondering if I would have a cord from the television to my sitting position?
Hi Kent, I would look into purchasing Wireless Bluetooth Headphones with a transmitter. Basically, it takes the 3.5mm or RCA output from your television and transmits it as a Bluetooth signal. This may be the trick for you!
Any suggestions on where I would look for them, and what in particular would I like them to be able to have as attributes?
