They're IR, which means line-of-sight from the transmitter. I used a pair of IR headphones about 4 or 5 years ago that sounded pretty decent when you were near the transmitter, but dropped in quality the further you'd get from it. I don't know how much the tech has improved since then. For what it's worth, when I tried several bluetooth wireless headphones with several different transmission sources, the sound quality was never worth it to me to invest in. BT just didn't have the bandwidth to transmit a high-enough quality signal for my ears.signalranger wrote:Thanks Village Idiot, very helpful, I'm looking into those. Pretty resourceful for a Village Idiot. Don't know what they mean by reception 180 degrees from base when most wireless base stations transmit in a 360 degree arc. Price is very close to two pairs of the Sennheiser, but I guess that's about as cheap as you can find. Will check eBay also.

What do you have to do to return to the TV sound speakers, i.e. turn off wireless headphone and return to normal audio on TV. I have an older Mitsubishi Rear Projection TV WD 52528. I know I would need an adapter cable to connect the transmitter to the RCA Red White Output Audio .....but would I have to constantly go back behind my TV to disconnect (too much trouble) in order to return to normal listening without wireless head phones? If anybody can help me with this I would appreciate it. TIA
