Music in true stereo options

Recommended Posts

I have been having so much fun listening to music lately!  After hearing with only one aided ear for so many years, I find myself in awe of true stereo sound.  Different musical information delivered to right and left sides.  It makes me feel like I am sitting in the middle of the music, like I was dropped into the center of the band.  I am loving it!

 

best options for me so far are....

 

Sonnets- hands down winner is BOSE QC35 BlueTooth headphones

Rondos- CozyPhones headband headphones or Rondo mini battery packs with bilateral red jack DAI cable

 

wow.  Amazing!

I’m looking for options that deliver true stereo (separate left and right audio for music).  These are the options I have tried.  Does anyone know of other options?

-DAI bilateral red jack cable

-stereo music link earhooks

-CozyPhones flat stereo speakers

Has anyone found other options for true stereo (separate left and right music audio)?

Thank you for your help.

This is great, Mary Beth! Thank you. I use the ear hooks and I am pretty satisfied with them. They are cheap, long lasting (I’ve had mine for around 4 years) and give very decent volume and sound quality. 

It would be useful to consider cost and ease of sourcing something as part of this chart.

I agree that using the telecoil can be highly inconvenient. This is made worse by needing the Finetuner, meaning that if I need to suddenly switch my program out so that I can hear properly, it’s a faff (e.g. getting on a bus and speaking to a driver). I also find I get a lot of electromagnetic interference. 

I look forward to seeing what other stereo options people come up with!

Good points @MallaRuth!

Cost factor:  CozyPhones and music links are cheapest.

Ease of purchasing:  CozyPhones (Amazon or direct from CozyPhones) and BOSE QC35 BT headphones are easiest to find and have shipped.

Convenience of use:  I am still holding out on this factor and so hope the AudioLink will be true stereo, great sound, not too expensive and easy to use!

Seems like the Bose QuietComfort 35 / QC35 will be replaced by the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 soon.
