Hi all, I am new to the forum, nice to meet you!
I just bought a new laptop and want a wireless headphone to go with it. But after several days of researching, I still can't make up my mind :( I am hoping you can give me some suggestions.
I will be using the headphone for music 50%, gaming 30%, and movie 20%. My budget is up to 600$ (I have about 550$ of amazon gift cards saved up over the years), but the less expensive the better.
My biggest concern is wifi interference because I will be online constantly, and with my small desk I will be putting the base station close to my laptop, with wifi router about 12 feet away. I do have a dual band router, hopefully that will mitigate any interference issue.
My current headphone is the Klipsch Image S4 which I think is pretty good. I would be happy if my new wireless headphone is at least as good as the S4, but I do want to have better quality at a reasonable cost if possible.
I am also not sure if headphone is the limiting factor because I will only be using a laptop (Alienware M17x R4) instead of the nicer high end receiver. I don't plan on using any external sound card either. (but if it really really make a big difference, I will consider the external card. I just don't want my lapotop to look bulky with usb dangling around it)
The headphones that I have looked at so far are:
Logitech G930 -> not really a headphone, but they are cheap on Amazon now for only 99$, but I am very concern about the issues people have with installing the software to 64bit Window 7
Senn PX 210 BT -> I am concern if the quality will be a lot worse than the RS 180, since Blue Tooth is probably not as good as Kleer
Senn RS 180 -> seem to be pretty well balance in terms of cost and quality, and also the phones has been around for 2 years now with no significant complaint from other users that I can find.
Senn RS 220 - I really like the better sound quality, but I am concern with the drop off issue that people talk about especially since I will be placing my base station next to my laptop, and I am wondering if the extra cost is worth it over the RS 180.
