Wireless Headphone suggestions (~$150)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

So I am in need of a new pair of headphones. The toughest caveat of this is that i would majorly prefer wireless. I realize that I will pay a decent premium and loose some quality, but far too often do I stand up and forget to remove my headphones (mainly when listening to music). The vast majority of what i will use them for is listening to my music and sometimes netflix (i love good positioning btw, but quality supersedes that)... the vast majority of music i listen to is heavy on mids and highs, but there is always a decent base present (passion pit, phoenix, Spoon, Googoo dolls, and Dashboard confessional are probably the most recognizable just to get an idea)... the only dead set requirement is that they must be around ear... i would like them to be decently noise blocking if possible, but open back is fine as it gets hot here in the summer... my budget is preferably around 150 USD, but i will go up to $200 if it would be a substantial difference.

TL;DR
  • Price -$150
  • wierless
  • around ear
  • mainly used for music (listen to a lot of highs and mids)
  • prefer some noise blocking, but it gets hot here
  • good positioning is a +

thanks in advance for the help smile.gif

The vengeance 2000 is currently on sale at Newegg. I read good things about it.

Alternatively, there's the Razer Chimaera, currently at $115.

And finally, the one I'd go for, the Logitech G930, currently at $115.

I am not particularly looking for a headset... They tend to not be as good of quality sound wise for the money, and I am a bit short in the cash front (but need good headphones to study with)... Also, I have had bad experiences with razor products so those are a no go just about for sure frown.gif

In that case, the Sennheiser RS120s are on sale on Amazon. You can't really go wrong with Sennheisers.

unfortunately the 120s are on ear, but that lind did lead me to find out that the RS 170s are $200 on amazon atm... while that is on the max end of my budget, they are seeming like the perfect headphones for me atm... do you by any chance know how hot they get? that is really my only worry with them (as they come the some of the highest reviews i have seen in that price range)

after further research there are simply better options than the vengence 2000 as I am not in need of a headset, but just headphones in general... thankyou for the input on them though smile.gif
