LIFESTYLE – Enjoy cinema quality sound at home
Even with the highest spec computers, watching Netflix or films on them you tend to lose some of the sound quality which can reduce the quality of your experience. However, this can be combatted with great quality headphones. We tried and tested these for you, blocking out and surrounding sounds so you are emersed in the film or programme and listening with excellent sound quality can almost replica the cinema!
Elite Groov-e Elite wireless headphones
These sleek headphones are not only pleasing to the eye, they are wireless which makes them easy to use and come with a beautiful carry case. The adjustable headband is padded and very comfortable to wear, so you can almost forget you are wearing them as you immerse yourself in your favourite programme. You can also use these fantastic headphones for calls, with controls in the easy to reach ear cup. The headphones are easily chargeable but come with a cable if you happen to run out of battery right in the middle of a film, although this is unlikely to happen with 10 hours of wireless playback! Losing the cable certainly makes watching programmes laying down or indeed sitting up much more comfortable. What we love about these headphones is the sound quality, the Groov-e Elite Wireless Headphones with Active Noise Cancelling really do take your audio experience to another level. Featuring 40mm Neodymium drivers for premium sound and crystal-clear audio which is supported by Active Noise Cancelling.
The Elite headphones are compatible with all Bluetooth enabled products such as iPads, iPhones and most smartphones, or can connect to any 3.5mm headphone jack for corded audio playback.
Available at Groov-e for £69.99

We can’t praise these headphones enough, they really are excellent quality headphones for a fantastic price.
