Help Finding Bluetooth Headset For My Dad

590 Views 12 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  maltamonk
I have been trying to find a nice set of big over the ear bluetooth headphones for my dad.
Was in BB today looking and cant seem to find the right one.
Was hoping someone might know a set I can get him.
He really likes his Razer Kraken set but needs a bluetooth pair now>
Needed:
Big comfy over the ear (similar to Kraken)
Bluetooth
Not tight fitting
Adjustable

Thanks

kinda feel like a parrot but get a good pair of headphones + BT adapter.

didn't give a budget but SHP9500s, SHP9600s, or Fidelio X2 + any of the MPOW clones (Anker A3352, GMCell C28, 1Mii MiiLink, ..)

if you have a bigger budget for some other headphones then just make sure whatever you get has a removable 3.5mm cable.

This will probably be an unpopular option but......

Bose QCII They are very similar to the Krakens in feel and materials. They also serve as ANC cans (which are very useful anyways). Soundwise not the best, but better than the Krakens. And ofc they are bluetooth.

Appreciate the advise I will look into these options.
I just had to ask for help as I ordered a few on Amazon and they were too small / tight.
Price is really no issue he just has a big head :) and does probably want ANC.
I have the Krakens and love them super comfy and big ear cushions.

@The Pook
Could the 1mii miilink / Anker Soundsync A3352 work with the Krakens>?
That might be the way to go as he likes those.

It will work with any headset that has a 3.5mm jack. It doesn't work with usb headsets. So if the Kraken you have is 3.5mm. Then it will work.

the headphones can be 2.5mm or any of the properitary nonsense that some headphones use, assuming that you can get a male to female 3.5mm adapter.

the important thing is that the cable needs to be removable.



no idea if the Kraken have a removable cable since there seems to be 4039 different versions of the Kraken but if the cable can be removed it'll work.

Doesn't have to be removable. You can just put the extra cable length and receiver in your pocket. Or just use a cable tie.

if you want to lasso a 4+ foot cable around your headphones then yeah, I guess.

putting it in your pocket doesn't make them any more wireless than putting your phone in your pocket and plugging your wired headphones into your phone.

Some of these are Wireless headsets not Bluetooth correct>
Do they need a USB to connect to say a TV or PC?
Then can they also connect to a Phone because Wifi ?
He Tried a pair of Hyper X on and liked them but they were Wired.
Would say a Hyper X Cloud 2 - Corsair HS70 - Work with PC / TV / Phone ?

There are several different Hyper X sets that range wildly. From the Stinger(which is most similar to the Kraken) to the Alpha and Revolver (which are higher quality and have a much different feel)

They have wireless options in the flight series and the mix.


PS Idk if they make the revolvers anymore since being sold to HP.
