DVD ear buds

Hi Guys,
I donate blood platelets every two weeks and they have DVD players we can use. They, also, have TV’s and the head phones they have do not cancel out the TV’s.
I was thinking that if I got ear buds, they might work better at blocking out the TV’s.
I would only use them every two weeks and the sound does not have to be great.
Any thought"s on what would be a good choice ?

Do not get ear buds (like so). They are crap. You want the kind that actually makes a seal with your ear canal. That might be what you meant, but I hope that helps your search. They’re called in ear monitors/headphones. I usually get Skullcandy brand and they have a range from cheap to not.

Also with earbuds, people tend to turn the sound high to block background noise, thus potentially damaging their hearing.

This is more opinion than factual, so let’s move it over to IMHO.

Of all the relatively cheap headphones, these (Koss “The Plug”) might be the best at blocking out background sound.
