When it comes to putting together an entertainment space, you need to consider two main aspects: sound and screen.

- TV or video projector
If you are planning to set up a theatre style entertaining system, a TV or a video projector might be one of the most important decisions you will have to make. A TV has the advantage of being both, especially if it has a generous diagonal and you can get a nice view while the lights are off, very close to the view that you would enjoy in a cinema. You can also use a TV in more casual occasions which makes this kind of establishment have an advantage over a video projector one. Video projectors are awesome and you can find one of each kind on the market as they become highly popular with very year that passes. They are more realistic and closer to a cinema kind of experience but they will be a little too much if you are not looking for such an experience all the time. After you choose your TV or your video projector, is time to take care of the sound.
- Headphones or speakers
A perfect decision would be to use both. Speakers are great for movie nights or club nights and a subwoofer will help the sound tremendously especially if you are planning a party. You can go from having a simple set of speakers that will do the trick for small rooms, to having an AV or a Surround Sound Receiver. Whatever you choose, this will make the difference between a casual evening and a special one. But you will not feel completely satisfied if you don’t have a set of headphones to use along with your entertainment equipment. Let’s say you want to watch a movie and you are the only one who has the time to indulge in such a relaxing activity. A set of headphones that you can plug into your TV or your video projector will come at handy in such situations and will give you the freedom you need to do so, without disturbing other members of the family or friends who might be living with you. You can choose from on-ear, over-ear, in-ear, or earbud headphones, but to make the right decision you need to know what is the difference between them and the advantages that come with each device. The earbuds are the oldest type of headsets and they didn’t become popular as soon as they became available, but they hit some sort of popularity when they were sold along with the iPod music players. These kind of headphones have the advantage of being affordable and portable, but their biggest disadvantage is poor noise isolation and instability during usage because they can fall out of the ear easily and this can become quite uncomfortable for the user. Luckily, they were followed by their more improves sisters the in-ear headphones, which are made to fit inside the ear, eliminating some of the discomfort that the earbuds have. They also provide a good level of noise isolation and they are affordable and portable as well. They do have the disadvantage to build up the ear wax which can become a problem and can be uncomfortable for some users. With all these aspects, in-ear headphones are definitely ones that need your attention. Last two categories, on-ear and over ear headphones are somewhat similar when it comes to their concept but they can be quite different for the expert users. The on-ear headphones cover the ear canals but they don’t cover the entire ear, which makes it tricky when it comes to noise isolation but they are very comfortable and the sound they produce is of a high quality that will satisfy even the more picky users. When it comes to the over-ear headphones, the noise isolation problem is fixed because they cover the entire ear and they provide high quality sound as well, so if you are a picky user, this might be a product for you. The only problem when it comes to over-ear headphones is the poor portability level but it all comes down to what kind of compromise are you willing to make.
Now that you have an idea of what path do you want to walk on, get the perfect TV or video projector for you and the best set of headphones and speakers and you are ready to enjoy your Friday evenings alone or with your friends in the comfort of your house. Having an entertainment system is an investment that you will enjoy for years to come and it is important to be satisfied with it from the beginning!
