wireless listening.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've looked around but I haven't found many other people with a set up like mine. I have my PC hooked to my receiver via HDMI through my video card. I'm trying to get some good quality wireless headphones or set so I can listen to music/watch movies when the kids are sleeping, and occasionally game. I was originally thinking of a cheap solution of the corsair or Logitech gaming set ups, but I'd like a second opinion. And yes, I want wireless, I don't want to drag around a cord from my box, across the living room and over the dog.
I've been toying around with the thought of just getting a blue tooth dongle and using my lg Bluetooth hbs700 with it, but the sound quality on those are... Well there's a reason I only use those for running and making calls. I don't want to spend more than 200 on these unless if they can make my ears orgasm.

Forgot to mention, most of the music I'll be listening to will be classic rock, jazz, and some old metal.

Where is your receiver in relation to where you sit and your computer itself?

You will get much better sound with a wired option, but I understand that's sometimes not possible (unless you wanted to run some wires, I guess).

I'm going to assume you want closed, since you mentioned doing it when the kids are sleeping.

Do you want a mic, or is that not as important?

If you could stretch your budget a bit you could get the Sennheiser MM 450. I've never heard these, but Sennheiser is a good name for the most part.

You could also go with the Sennheiser RS120

Or the SONY MDR-RF985RK

Again, I have no experience with any of these; just picked a couple.

The receiver and computer are almost right next to each other, and they're both about 10 ft from where I sit. But I usually also go into the kitchen and I don't want to worry about the dog tripping and pulling out a cable. I like those rs120... I'll try to find a set I could listen to.
And a mic isn't important, most games I play are single player, eg Skyrim, fallout, single player on some shooters. Like BioShock.

Also I remember seeing the rs 180, for about 240. I'm tempted to jump on that boat if I can find more about it and their wireless signal/base station.

The first one I linked is Bluetooth, the other 2 are RF (The RS180 is too, 2.4GHz wireless).
