"Currently unavailable."

Still an open niche. :wink:

I had one of those and it worked well enough until one of the kids dropped it.

Haha you got me, didn't notice that. I remember that there were a handful of these a number of years ago, but they seem to have dried up. Seems that you give up some of the convenience with a separate receiver, and you don't really have much quality to gain since the limiting factor is the RF transmission. I believe A2DP capable Bluetooth offers more potential quality wise.

True. But technology marches on. I've been lusting for a set of these to play with... http://www.linxtechnologies.com/Product ... cy-Module/

Fudge. Never mind, "If true high-fidelity audio is required, the HP3 is probably not the best choice, as it is optimized for data."

On the Sennheisers and I think most wireless headphones, there is a volume control on each headset. So multiple users aren't a problem. Sennheiser does make additional headsets available for this exact purpose.

I'm afraid I didn't have good results with the Senn Rs120's... too much noise. Perhaps the Rs170's or RS180's would be better, but you're talking a different price range. I ended up with the Pioneer SE-DIR800C (IR, not RF), which I've been quite happy with. But they also are much more expensive than RS120's.
