    I need to buy 3 pairs of wireless headphones. Please give me your opinions on the best bang for the buck factor.

    Thanks

      Wireless headphones seem to be targeted at consumers, rather than prosumers/professionals. I have yet to find a pair that I thought were worth the money myself.

        Same here - tried many, hated many, returned many for a full refund.

          If you want a good wireless headphone get the headphones you want and hook them up to a decent wireless in ear system. A cool combination would be Ultrasone Pro750's and a PSM400 system.

            These will be used for my bands practice sessions. I want to run them out of my Art400.

            Thanks everyone!

              With in ear monitors you can get 1 transmitter and 3 receivers to save money.

                The only in ear system I saw was like $999. I was hoping to spend less than$300. Wireless headphones really suck that bad, eh? What's the problem with them? I was seriously considering these:

                  To quote from the "manual" for that model, I think the problem could be; "Note: The volume of the sound source must be sufficient, otherwise the transmitter automatically turns off."

                  That may be similar to the volume "ducking" which most regular wireless headphones seem to produce when used for drums, as mentioned a few times in this previous thread; wireless headphones???

                  Then there's the interference, distortion, limited bandwidth and short battery life!: Wireless Headphones - thoughts?

                  I think the moral is that cutting the cord costs big bucks for a professional true diversity IEM system, which drummers in particular can rarely justify.

                      Awesome info, thanks for your help Bruce. I'm just going corded after reading that. I was hoping the bandwidth issue would be solved by now....I understand the limitations. Heck, what's 3 extra cords in the tangled web anyway? LOL

                      Let me know rephrase my question! From a drumming standpoint with lots of sweat.....what's the best set out there for the money. I can imagine them getting pretty nasty after an hour. LMAO Which one's will keep my head the coolest. Does anyone make a pair with an integrated fan?
