Default Which Cordless Headphones to Buy

Friends..

Between my wife and two kids the only time I get to watch TV/Movies is once they have gone to bed! ... and watching movies with the volume tonked way down is a REAAAAAAAL !! ..

Time has come for me to invest in a "decent" pair of cordless headphones. Local Brands vs Imported ? - I believe Philips has a model in India if I am not mistaken - any views on them? I have someone coming down from Dubai next week - so that can be explored as well.

Please suggest some models I can consider - along with approximate prices if possible.

Well you are in the same boat as i am, though we 2 TV's and still i don't get to watch it. I even got TC tuner but i still had to sit in front of computer to watch it so sold it. The got some Desi headphones which had a long wire around 10 mtr. The worst headphones i must say they cranked up in like 2 weeks.

Went to Planet M saw a great looking philips headphones wireless but the price put me off 3K+ i think as it was long time back and those were not for sale as they had some manufacturing defect when asked.

Try Frontech wireless headphone; Not that great but value for money @ Rs650. Voice quality is just acceptable as it works on Radio Frequency, might hear bit interference when other instruments are in operation i.e. mobile phone.
Headphone by Phillips works on Infrared, so you have to be in line with the IR Transmitter; more over IR headphones are bit costly.

Buy Philips Headphones and don't go for anything like frontech etc etc. I had 4+ headphones with me from frontech to sennheiser. The sennheiser are great but for VFM buy philips only. Also Insted of cordless go for wired one with long cord. It Helps, coz you don't have to worry about charding , direction etc etc.

With a glass in hand, i am sure.

Well, thats exactly what i do. I use a long chorded headphones that my brother brought from japan almost 10 years ago & it still works like a charm. If you are particular about chordless, I would suggest you try the local stuff that you get for 650 bucks & see if that is what you want. Else get a branded wired headphone.

Well I have heard Sennheiser head phones & for me that would be "the" headphones that I would buy..Amazing sound,German pedigree, solid build quality..Have also heard Yamaha headphones but I can't say for sure if I would buy them..

KB sir get a long lead one.....it is the best option.....or get some good brand and DIY a long cable to make a extension....as the cordless would require charging or cell change quite often.....

PS- even I use corded type.....Philips SBC HP890.....quite nice.....It has a 3 meter wire.....

I think RF ones would be better than BT ones. Do add Sennheiser to the list others mentioned. Kovai should have decent shops where you can try Sony/Logi wireless headphones

Hi KB100...According to me for better sound quality you must only look for Bluetooth wireless headfones....but sadly they are still costly here...But as u have someone coming from middle east...u research the prices over there.

Thanks
