I'm searching for a pair of wireless headphones

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone, I'm currently using a pair of  beyerdynamic dt990s and a centrance dacport. I'm willing to try a pair of wireless headphones -I hope this is the right section- since it's a little messy here (I have too many cables on my desk, and they tend to tangle together a lot), but I'm concerned about sound quality: how much do these things compress audio? I'm mostly listening to 320kbps ogg vorbis (spotify premium) and flac files; I know it's impossible to stream a flac via bluetooth without compressing it, but I'd be okay if the quality would be similar to a 320kbps file. (I'm sorry for the trivial question, but I have never tried a pair of wireless headphones).

 

Also, is there any pair which sounds similar to the dt990?

For bluetooth, my favorite so far is the Meelectronic Air-fi 32. It isn't anywhere near the class of the dt990. It's more in line sound wise with a Bose OE. They can be had for around $50. Maybe you could consider a bluetooth wireless receiver and still use your dt990.

Sennheiser RS220 could be an interesting option.

Well, that's indeed an interesting option, even if it's not exactly a cheap one.

 

From my understanding however they aren't bluetooth and I would still need to connect the base station to my laptop. That would be currently impossible, my audio jack is broken, I can only use a dac connected via usb or stream wirelessly

how about ue9000....only works with mac..ipad...iphone..

sounds like a dt990 but without the recessed mids

very engaging sound..no sibilance or muddy bass.
