The Avantree HT280 is wireless headphones with a great design for watching TVs. They work in the 2.4GHz frequency band and also have no audio delay with a long transmission range up to 30 m or 100 ft. That’s enough for my house which is not too big. The connection is simple, just plug on and turn on both devices, and then it will automatically connect, so easy!
The headphones come with a charging dock in the box. Besides they also pack with an AC adapter, optical audio cable, 3.5mm to RCA audio cable, RCA audio cable, 3.5mm audio cable, 6.35mm to 3.5mm adapter, and user manual.
The closed-back design is good for protection from outside noise and effective to keep the leak sound. So, the sound from movies or music will not disturb your roommate.
Playtime just 12 hours continuously, that is things I feel too less. However; that’s enough for up to 2 – 3 movies continuously.
Avantree HT280 Review – The Sound Quality
The one main feature of Avantree HT280 is loud volume. The company claims that these headphones allow getting more additional 30% of volume for those who have some problems with hearing. So, Avantree is confident that HT280 is suitable for seniors or the hearing impaired.
The sound is good but not much. If the audio quality is the main point for your new wireless headphones for TV, you should other options like Sennheiser RS 175 or Sennheiser Rs 195. The HT280 is providing good sound quality at a decent price.
The headphone’s body is lightweight and very comfortable. They come in square shape and quite big ear cups which is more suitable for people with large ears. The earcups design to freely flex and that’s why HT280 can conform to most faces. With the thickly padding ear cups, it not only ensures comfortable wearing but also offers a good seal, that’s block around sound for outside good as well. You will not disturb other people in the house.
The Avantree HT280 like most other headphones can adjust the headband. Just pull the headband to extend and push it together to shrink.
The transmitter is a high square design, dimension is 10″ x 9.4″ x 4.2″. If you place the headphones in the slot on the top of the transmitter, it will be charged all the time. When you take it off from the transmitter and wear it and it will start playback auto.
