Windows 7: Wireless Headphones

Wireless Headphones

I have decided to buy wireless headphones, but I can't decide from which manufacturer to buy? Pioneer, TDK WR700 or Sony Digital Noise-Canceling Headphones. I think Sony Digital Noise is the best choice. Your thoughts please?

I don't know about any of those. However, avoid Sennheiser wireless. I have one from Sennheiser and they are iffy at best. Actually so good, that they are now "collecting dust".

I have the Sony MDR-970R and they're not worth the time to recharge the battery. At first, I thought they were handy but they're a worthless piece of "you know what". After about 10-15 minutes, they give a loud POP and base unit shuts off. If the volume is up on the headset, it's enough to hurt your ears. I'm afraid to wear the things now. If you unplug the power and reconnect, it might last for another 30-60 minutes (or not) then it pops and shuts down again. I think it's over heating as the base seems to get pretty warm while in operation.

And, the sound quality is not very good. It has a syncing button and two or three presses will bring it in better but it still has a raspy sound. No amount of adjusting or distance changes the poor quality audio.

I always go for the brands Sony and Bose, because they are known for their finest sound qualities. You have to know your purpose for buying a wireless headset. Is it for gaming purpose or just for listening to music; is it for home use, or for mobile phones? My personal choice is a Sony MDRDS6500 Wireless Surround Digital Headphone.
This one is free from cord constriction which can go for up to 328 feet away from the transmitter in any direction you choose. You can use it with music, movies, games and more.

I notice Sennheiser is listed in the 10 best. As I noted I have a "studio quality" Sennheiser and it is junk. I wanted it for my recording studio use but 3 feet is all the further I could get from the base unit.
