When it comes to your home theater, the general consensus is that bigger is better. Just walk into any electronic store and look at their top tier entertainment systems. Chances are, you’ll find a massive 4K TV, powerful tower speakers, a huge pair of subs, and a number of satellite speakers distributed throughout the room.
We can certainly see the appeal. After all, who wouldn’t want to recreate the exact movie theater experience in the comfort of their own home? In theory, it’s the perfect system. But in practice, things don’t always work out that way.
If you live in an apartment, you’ll have to keep that volume dial on low to prevent annoying your neighbors. In your home, any family members or children that head to bed early aren’t going to be able to sleep when you’re putting your fancy new sound system to the test.
Sony’s RF995K Home Theater Headphones are one solution to a common problem. They promise to create that big theater experience you crave, without all of the problems that come along with it. Audio equipment designed for home theater is quite a bit different than equipment designed for music. There are many unique challenges that that aren’t easy to solve in a compact pair of headphones. Can they live up to the hype? We decided to find out.
