Our take on the Sennheiser HD 65 TV

by Dave Bar
Sennheiser

Why spend another sleepless night counting sheep? You could be watching TV and movies while enjoying crisp, clear Sennheiser sound with the HD 65 TV. These comfortable, lightweight headphones feature sealed earcups that not only reduce outside noise, they also prevent sound from leaking out — allowing you to listen to your programs at any volume you wish without disturbing others around you.

The HD 65 TV includes an extra-long, 17-foot connection cable that plugs into your TV or stereo's headphone jack. An integrated in-line volume control let's you easily set the sound levels to your liking. Plus, separate adjustments for the left and right channels allow the volume to be individually adapted to your hearing.

Highlights:

  • around-the-ear design with padded leatherette earcups for outstanding comfort
  • adjustable padded headband
  • closed earcup design reduces ambient noise and prevents sound from leaking out
  • in-line volume control with separate sliders for left and right channel volume
  • headphone minijack with full-size adapter
  • cable length: attached 32 inch cable with 17-foot extension cord
  • frequency response: 25-20,000 Hz
  • impedance: 32 ohms
  • sensitivity: 112 dB
  • warranty: 2 years
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Features

Overview: The Sennheiser HD 65 TV over-the-ear headphones were designed with TV viewing in mind. A 17' extension cable is included to connect to a TV, or other device with a headphone output. On the output end of the extension cable (the end nearest the headphones) is an in-line volume control with separate sliders for left and right channel volume. The volume control housing also has a clip (designed like a belt clip) to keep it in place.

Comfortable Fit: The HD 65 TV uses soft, leatherette ear cushions and a padded headband for a comfortable fit.

Over-the-Ear Design: A closed, over-the-ear design helps block out ambient noise, allowing you to listen at a safer level.

Neodymium Magnets: The Sennheiser HD 65 TV utilizes powerful neodymium magnets for excellent speech intelligibility and powerful sound reproduction.

Connectivity: The cable attached to the headphones is terminated with a 3.5mm (1/8") mini-plug. The extension cable also has 3.5mm jacks (male on the input end, female on the output end). A 3.5mm to 1/4" adapter is included, for use with or without the extension cable.

Sensheiser HD65TV Earphones

Written By Frederick D., Woodstock, GA on Thursday, February 20, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The cord is quite fragile and fails occasionally. Unable to repair, had to buy new earphones. This is the reason for my current purchase.
Pros:
Good sound quality.
Cons:
Had to buy separate amplifier - without it the TV Sound would be too loud for person with normal hearing in the room would be drowned out.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These headphones are perfect! I love the way you can leave them plugged into the tv and still be able to control the tv volume through the tv's speakers. Also, the supplied cord was perfectly long enough to reach from the tv to the bed. They are extremely comfortable on the head and very lightweight. Best headphones I've ever owned
Pros:
Supplied cord In-line volume control Comfort when wearing Sound quality
Cons:

Sennheiser HD 65 TV Headphone Review

Written By David T., Gainesville, FL on Wednesday, December 05, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is a great inexpensive headset for use with televisions. The headset fits well and stays in place on your head. The headset works great with good sound quality.
Pros:
They fit well and are comfortable on the ears while providing left and right controls for individualized settings on volume.
Cons:
The extended cable provided with the headset needs to be longer to provide for more ease in moving around and keeping the cord from being a trip hazard.

Really good sound

Written By Dean, Phoenix on Sunday, October 14, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought these to play video games when my wife is asleep. The sound quality has been surprisingly good for the price of these earphones. I can hear conversations in the background of the video game that I never heard before when playing without earphones at normal volume levels. Would definitely buy again.
Pros:
Really good sound quality, comfortable, inexpensive
Cons:
None

HD65TV headset

Written By Hilton M, Austin, TX on Saturday, March 17, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Headset is fine. Note, however, that there is a probalem with the connector from the headset into the volumn control. That is, the headphone connector has to be inserted and positioned just right into the volumn control to get 3-D sound or any sound. I think the defect probably lies in the female connector of the volumn control but am not sure. Many thanks for your help.
Pros:
Very good sound and comfort.
Cons:
Possible defect in the headphone-to-volumn control connectors.

Not Ready for TV

Written By Chepard, Titusville, FL on Wednesday, February 01, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is a good news, bad news product. The headset is comfortable and sound reproduction is good for this price level. However, none of my 3 flat screen TV's have a headphone jack. If this headphone can be labeled "headphones for TV" then any headphone can be categorized as such. In order to use this on any of my TV's, a headphone amplifier which plugs into the audio out receptacles is required. I purchased a Pro-Ject Head Box II to allow the Sennheiser HZR 62 headphones access to my TV. In order to call this a TV headset an additonal expense has to be factored in. I have found the headset quite useful in watching movies on my laptop. The second nitpick that I have with this headset is that the sound level is controlled from the add-on 17 ft extension cord. It would be more useful if it was attached to the headset cord, not the extension cord as I use the unit more without the extension. As an overall evaluation, I am quite satisfied with the HZR 62 headphones. The problem is with the description.

Pros:
Decent headset for the price. Comfortable.
Cons:
Not ready for TV

1 question already asked

What is the volume control range? Can the volume be turned off in side while listening the other side? [ Rosanne  Feb 08, 2014 ]
8 answers
  • Yes. It has a left right slider to control each individually. You can, of course, still use you're tv remote for the overall volume. [ Darlene   Feb 09, 2014 ]
  • Yes, there are seperate volume controls for each.side, so you can have a different volume level for the right side versus left or vice versa, or even turn one side off or have both sides on the same level. [ JEREMIAH C   Feb 09, 2014 ]
  • I bought HD 65 TV for my Dad. He is very hard hearing and I had hoped they would make his tv watching more enjoyable. To answer your question; they are a good headset and the volume can be individually controlled and even shut off to either side. The drawback I found is that the amplifier on the tv set is not sufficient to drive them loud enough for my Dad's hearing. The cord is sufficiently long and the sound is good. I blame the volume (or rather the lack thereof) on the puny amp in todays flat screen sets. Hope you find this helpful. [ LARRY C.   Feb 09, 2014 ]
  • Yes. The control has "left" & "right" slider switches that can be moved independently from no volume to max volume. [ LARRY   Feb 09, 2014 ]
  • All you could want in a headset.Much better than wireless [ GORDON   Feb 08, 2014 ]
  • The headphones do not have a mute setting, but you can adjust the volume low enough so that it is impossible to hear the sound coming from the headphones if you don't have them on your head. [ RONNIE R   Feb 08, 2014 ]
  • I believe you can listen to only one side. But I think the idea is to give you some flexability that would not be available in a standard set. This allows you to adjust each side so you have even volume on both channels. This may come into play depending on our own hearing,what source we are listening to etc.Hope this helps. My experience with these phones was not good [ GARY   Feb 08, 2014 ]
  • I have these connected to my Sony TV. So the range is limited to that output. You would get more range if you were connected to a A/V receiver.The volume is plenty loud for me. Also you can completely turn off one side of the headphone. The volume slider has a right/left or together function. [ GARY   Feb 08, 2014 ]
