Default Bluetooth earbuds for seniors?

My grandmother enlisted my help for her Christmas present. She hates the huge headphones that go over her ears. She wants earbuds.

Does anyone have any suggestions of something that would simple and comfortable for her?

Do these need to be wireless earbuds? Asking, because there's a great light, comfortable on-ear headphone I'd recommend at least checking into but its not wireless - the Koss Porta Pro (well there is a wireless version...with wire and finicky recharging system... so not recommended.) With Yaxi pads, the Porta Pro is one of the most comfortable on-ear headphones that absolutely disappears on your head. As comfortable as the really good high-end over ears. Absolutely the most euphonic sounding headphone I've ever heard as well...nice warm sound with great, solid and forward mids and a fatigue free listen. For a comfortable wearing headphone with such a euphonic sound can't recommend them enough...they are absolute gems of a headphone.

Unfortunately this isn't something she'd be interested in. They have to be earbuds.

These are a popular model, and are very reasonably priced (green model is $15 after coupon right now). They come in a ton of colors. They're waterproof too

She would need a receiver with Bluetooth, like a mobile phone, or tablet, or a stereo with BT capabilities. I suppose it's best to know what she'll be using
to listen to music.

Ahhh my bad. This is only for watching TV. I thought I had mentioned that.

You could use this device. I have one connected directly to my TV and have had no issues.
