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.
When 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.

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.
A 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.

The 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.
Unlike 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.
