Open-Ear Bluetooth Headphones?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Is there such a thing, and does anyone have any recommendations? Googling shows me a couple of products, but none of them seem to be cans.

Audio Technica has wireless versions of their full-sized open back headphones.

 

Not sure if that's what you're looking for though.

I didn't realize they were $700. Lol probably not what you're looking for.

Hello!

I heard and like the Sennheiser RS220. According to spec, it uses the same driver as HD650. Not going to lie but they don't sound on par but I find the RS220 to sound great!

Hope it helps!

...and I'm back. I should have clarified that I'm looking for something that doesn't require a dock or anything. I want something that I can just put on my neck and bring outside. Basically, something like the Beats Wireless...except doesn't suck.

Too bad, you just missed the UE9000 deal a few hours ago. They were available for 150$. Maybe they might pop out again...

Looks like the deal is still going on at the Logitech site. But these headphones aren't open; they're closed.

UE6000. When needed, then only you connect the cable wink.gif

Just so you know, Bluetooth audio quality may be disappointing unless you are used to listening to lossy files. There can be some annoying background noise that would be hard to ignore when using headphones. Some of the BT speakers sound pretty good, but if you put your ear next to it, you can hear a surprising amount of noise. The other issue is the limited range. Usually around 30 ft.

 

Good luck,

kev

+1!!! Can't agree more! I have a BT speaker and u hardly use it other than for surround purpose (the front row uses cable). They don't make music sound better IMO

Sweet, I think the UE6000 will do.

 

I am not too worried about the sound quality because it will be used primarily as a walk-around outdoors.

Reminder: the UE6000 have no BT function!
