Best Television Headphones

These are The Best Television Headphones, as chosen by the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute. In tests to prove performance and comfort, The Institute found this model provided the clearest audio, the greatest transmission range, and were the most comfortable of any other model tested.

Best Television HeadphonesWhen tested indoors, The Best headphones received CD-quality audio from up to 42 feet away from a television, more than doubling the distance of lesser models. And outdoors, these headphones still received quality signals at up to 230 feet. “It was like I was at the movies” said one panelist, after experiencing the best model’s full sound and clear dialogue. No surprise, given their 7.1-channel surround sound that another member described as “outstanding stereo sound.”

Of course, the quality of a set of headphones only matters for the duration they can be worn, and The Best Television Headphones provided superior comfort as well as performance. While other models were too tight, or were “hot and stifling”, the Best model lead one observer to proclaim them “the most comfortable headphones I’ve ever worn.”

Are you ready to experience the ultimate in television sound, without disturbing roommates or neighbors? Then you’re ready for The Best Television Headphones from Hammacher Schlemmer.

Voice Communicating Ski Goggles

The Voice Communicating Ski Goggles from Hammacher Schlemmer allow up to 6 friends to stay in contact with one another while enjoying a day on the slopes. Using a Bluetooth transceiver, with a range up to 1,600 feet, skiers with these goggles can keep each other updated on where the freshest powder has fallen, and which slopes might be too crowded to venture down.

Voice Communicating Ski GogglesA microphone built into the frame of the goggles delivers clear speech to listeners, vastly preferred to the wind-muffled sounds of an external mic. Plug your earphones into the standard 1/8″ jack if you prefer your own over the two sets of earbuds — one for under a helmet, one for over — that are included. The Voice Communicating Ski Goggles connect wirelessly to your smartphone so you can listen to your favorite playlists, as well as enabling automatic voice answering of your incoming calls. In the temple area of the goggles, large buttons adjust the volume, answer calls, and activate the intercom mode; your bulky ski gloves won’t interfere with your ability to to make adjustments on the fly.

And lets not forget that these are ski goggles, after all; the mirror-coated lenses (black and orange-tinted both included) block 100% of harmful UV rays, and have anti-fogging and anti-scratch coating. For safe keeping, the goggles come with a fabric bag and a hard case, protecting them from damage even when packed with other gear.

Don’t miss out on the short lines at the chair lift. Keep in touch with your group of slaloming friends out on the slopes this winter, with The Voice Communicating Ski Goggles.

Are you prepared for Hurricane Season?

Hurricane Isaac has been a grim reminder that the end of summer does not mean the end of hurricane season. According to NOAA both the Atlantic and Pacific hurricane seasons officially last through the end of November. Are you prepared should the next major storm strike your area?


Best Emergency RadioThe Best Emergency Radio from Hammacher Schlemmer keeps you informed of  what’s going on around you even in the worst of conditions.  This emergency radio earned The Best rating from the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute because it delivered a superior combination of sound quality, playback time, and reception. Analysts turned the units’ dynamos for one minute to power the rechargeable batteries. The radios were turned on until power was exhausted and The Best Emergency Radio lasted 8.7X longer than lesser models. The Best model’s large, ergonomic hand crank required little effort to turn and, unlike other radios with analog tuners, it has an easy-to-adjust digital tuner that received 33% more radio stations than competing radios and produced crisp, clear sound of AM and FM stations. The Best model allowed analysts to hear every word of the seven NOAA Weather Bands, unlike other models that produced distorted, static-filled audio. The Best model’s superior features include an integrated LED flashlight, USB port for charging smartphones, mini-USB cable, and a built-in solar panel for supplemental power.

Solar Power GeneratorUnlike noisy gas or propane generators that produce noxious fumes, The Solar Power Generator is silent and provides zero-emission back up power without relying on volatile fuels. When fully charged, the 1250-watt battery powers a refrigerator for up to four days, a television for 35 hours, or a laptop for up to 30 hours.


Bluetooth Shower Speaker

With The Bluetooth Shower Speaker from Hammacher Schlemmer, we no longer need to risk drowning our cell phones in order to access our preferred playlists.

Bluetooth Shower SpeakerEver since rivers have run and brooks have babbled, humans have been singing in the shower. There’s just something about the way music and water mix that makes the bathroom the perfect studio for amateur crooners to belt out their favorite tunes and show-stoppers. And since electric stereos don’t fare well in steamy environs, we’ve been limited to a capella versions of the classic standards. Until now.

The Bluetooth Shower Speaker connects wirelessly to any Bluetooth-enabled iPhone, iPad, or Android device to stream music inside your shower stall. A control panel allows you to scroll through songs, adjust the volume,  pause, and play. The LED screen has a clock to let you keep an eye on the time you might otherwise lose track of as you rehearse for your American Idol audition. The shower speaker attaches to your shower wall with a removable adhesive strip, or it can be set on a ledge or hung form the shower head.

Don’t just sing while you bathe; sing along, and let your voice be heard, with The Bluetooth Shower Speaker.

Thunderclap Alarm Clock

I bought it for my husband – now for the first time in 27 years I don’t have to wake him up. It is wonderful. – Patty in New York

The Thunderclap Alarm Clock is not your ordinary wake-up call. As the name suggests, this is for the serious over-sleepers who just can’t seem to drag themselves out of bed each day.

Thunderclap Alarm ClockGetting a good night’s sleep is important. As is being able to awaken and get to work the next morning. And whether it’s the din of an air conditioner, traffic noise coming through the windows, or a humidifier or fan in your bedroom, there are elements conspiring to keep us from arising from our slumber. This clock is the answer. Adjustable tones and volume — up to 113 decibels of volume, to be precise — let you take control of your mornings. Or someone else’s. Your sluggish roommate likely won’t be able to ignore a 113-decibel gift, no matter how late the study session went.

Need to wake everyone up for a road trip or important event? C-Dog in Michigan says:

I finally found an alarm clock that is an ALARM CLOCK. My hearing isn’t what it used to be and I had trouble hearing different alarm clocks but not this one. In fact, if I turn it all the way up, I wake up my entire household. I highly recommend it to all who can’t find a decent alarm clock. You will never oversleep again!!

And if noise alone isn’t enough, slip the vibrating pad under the mattress for an alarm experience you can feel as well as hear. Not to mention, the 3 bright LEDs which can be set to flash in cooperation with the audio portion of the Thunderclap Alarm Clock.

If you have a difficult time getting a good night’s sleep, without worrying about whether or not your alarm clock will wake you up in the morning, you need The Thunderclap Alarm Clock from Hammacher Schlemmer. You’ll get out of bed, our Lifetime Guarantee is sure of it!
