need some help with headphones !

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

hey fellas, need some assistance today.

 

long story short - im a complete audio-noob so i figured i'd ask the pros/audiophiles in this forum.
my dad wanted me to help him shop for some wireless headphones ( i believe you guys call them "cans" ? ) to hook up to his HTPC which is hooked up to the living room TV. ( he watches from the sofa that's pretty far away, so wired stuff wouldnt really be convenient )

 

im not sure about his budget but i guess i'll need several options:

 

- something entry level / low end

- something decent / mid tier

 

im pretty sure he doesnt want to spend over $100 - $120, but if you can convince me, i might try to convince him?

 

- he mainly watches alot of movies

- his listens to his "music" on occasion

- he gets tired of my mom's nagging, "noise canceling would be an ideal choice" he said. laugher.gif

/* i can shop anywhere online, as long as the place is legit + reliable + the price is right.

 * newegg, amazon, etc?

My dad has these: http://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-RS120-Wireless-Headphones-Charging/dp/B0001FTVEK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1330622182&sr=8-1
I have never tried them, but he likes them well enough. They are not noise canceling though.

that one looks solid, i guess if he puts the volume loud enough, it'll naturally tune out everything else.

+rep,
