Very True Again!!:D

 

However, I don't, I just like the way the Sony MDR 10RBT performed, so I went for the higher up Sony, and with my limited experience with headphones, this last Sony is the best I have ever heard. I am sure, as I move up the scale, others will take the #1 spot. However, I am looking at the prices..To get into that high-end-club cost $$$. I like middle of the road, or really good low end.. That's my style, and fits my pocketbook too.;)

 

BTW, IMO, the MK2 does deliver the goods.. :beerchug:

Sadly, there is not that much high-end for Bluetooth.

Yeh for bluetooth the high end currently is pretty much everything that has already been discussed in this thread. Wireless does go higher through kleer or DSS though they are much less portable than wired headphones.

I'm interested in bt headphones mainly for tv.
Any preference among these three sub-$100 options?
Voxoa HD
Meelec Matrix2 AF62
HK BT-Z

Comfort and dialogue clarity would be top priorities.

Also, any suggestions for a transmitter to hook up to the TV itself? This may be a bigger issue than the headphone choice.

Yup you area correct on the transmitter bit. 

 

I have a PC connected to my TV, also, have a $15 bluetooth usb apt-x dongle connected to the PC too...

Oh, I see a good review on the Creative Labs 350, a bluetooth ON EAR with apt-x, and these are sub $75.

 

I haven't tried the AF62, but from what I read, and they have aptx, and for the price they are a strong contender.

However, I swear by the Harman Kardon BT-Z for $97, with full 1 year warranty and 30 day free return. From 3 pairs I have seen, they all look brand new, and come with everything except a retail box. I returned one pair(they sent me a mailer)because it seemed the wire on one side was longer then the other.  I didn't know, that all I had to do was pulled the wire until they were even on both sides.  Anyway, return and sending shipping is all on them.Even now, I am returning a pair of AKG K550 for a refund, and I still get a mailer to return them. So, customer service is a factor in considering your choice. 

 

The Voxoa HD seemed to be on ear too.

 

All three have aptx, which is good. IMO, the HK BTs get the nod, not only for their performance, but for their hassle free return policy.

These are fine for now but their sound-quality isn't brilliant and they don't have an in-line remote, plus I have to have them connected to the phone which makes using my phone's camera a little impractical with a cable attached.

 

Anyway, I found my old Sony Ericsson MW600 stereo bluetooth headset the other day and gave it a charge and connected my AKG K451 headphones to it and the sound was great, albeit with no noise-cancelling (although that's not too important). The only trouble was is that the battery lasted about 6 hours (I was using them when going on a long walk) and so I want either a similar bluetooth receiver (or is it a transmitter?) with longer battery life or a completely new set of bluetooth headphones.

 

I've been reading various reviews of bluetooth headphones but it seems a decent pair will set you back quite a bit of money. So far I am torn between:

 

Philips Fidelio M1BT

Sennheiser MM 400-X

Sennheiser MM 500-X

Sennheiser PXC 310 BT

Sony DR-BTN200

Sony MDR-10RBT

Logitech UE 9000

Sony SBH52

 

I know that's quite a list of different types of headphones, prices and functionality. I have managed to find a few different places online that sell the more expensive headphones for a lot cheaper - usually used, for example (I live in the UK btw), I have found a pair of Logitech UE 9000 headphones for just £155 and some Sennheiser MM 400 X and 500 X for just £105 (400 model) and £70 respectively - (not sure what the difference is between the two models).

 

Anyway, what would people recommend as being the best from that list of headphones/adapter? Is it really worth splashing out over £150 or can I achieve the same with a cheaper pair and the Sony SBH52 adapter?

 

Thanks for any help.

don't even think about the sennheiser ones I owned the sennheiser 450x and boy it was the worst i ever bought and distorts very badly and i had to go through hell to return to the seller

That is why I always consider the return policy in making my choices.. IMO, Amazon and Harman Kardon have the best online return policies. They are no hassle, and most of the time if not all, you get a return mailer.. Most of the time,whatever I am thinking about getting,I check with Amazon to see if the have product too.

guys i read most of this thread

 

So what is the consensus for the best BT headphones,

 

I keep reading  about Sony MKII and the treble or sibilance as u call it, does that mean they produce sharp intolerable sound, as that is what I am trying to avoid.

 

I look for a warm mid and nice bass impact headphone. I own the 60 cent sms bluetooth which has aptx and its nice, I love its bass really a lot, but the mids are recessed a little, but in general it gives a warm sound.

 

But I need better sound quality this is why I am hunting for new BT headphones. BUT i can not tolerate the sound to be harsh, by the way I own the ATH m50 and I absolutely hate it, as its too sharp and the bass is just weird and bad and the treble is too sharp too, so I hope if I will get a new BT Headphone that it is far away from the ath m50 as I hate it so much.

 

I own the wired Mad dogs by MrSpeakers and boy they are the best, I liked warm, nice mids, and nice bass, I wish I could find a bluetooth version of it that wound be the best ever

 

So please help me out guys, I don't mind paying up to 800 USD to get the best, so which one is it

Define best...  LOL, no such thing as best as that's entirely subjective. 

post #295 of 424
Well I described the sound signature I like so maybe this can give an insight to what I like, I really like the sound of mad dogs from mister speakers

And I hate the the ath m50

Can someone help in telling what buy

I live in Israel so I don't have the privilege to buy things and return them

Re: the Sennheiser MM450-X: I've had a pair for the past year after having the PXC-310BT for two years (at which point they died). I have been VERY happy with the MM450-X, no distortion or any other problems. The previous poster may simply have had a bum headphone. The noise cancelling works great on airplanes (and is usually turned off) and the sound quality is excellent for bluetooth and doesn't jump out at me as missing anything other than perhaps a bit more low-end. I use a Samsung Galaxy S4 as a source with a variety of players (Poweramp, Spotify, Gizmo) and find a bit of gentle EQing is needed. I got mine new for $200 from eBay, so quite a great deal. One of my favorite features is the portability - these are on-ear headphones and fold up nicely, easy to transport in a pocket or bag.

 

Like you all in this thread, I like to keep abreast of the developments of wireless headphones. So far there hasn't been another pair that has tempted me yet.

sorry my experience with that sennheiser 450x is terrible and I tried to different ones at the store so I eliminate the fact that I got a bad headphone, this headphone is the worst I ever listened to and it distorts, also without noise cancellation on the sound is very low, and with noise cancellation on it distorts. Save your money that is my advise

 

Some reviewers on amazon even mentioned this especially the left speaker distorts like crazy if you listen to songs with lots of bass

It seems all of us here have our BT favorites, and the funny thing is, we all be correct!! :D

 

In my opinion, I swear by the Sony MDR 1RBTMK2.. They do it for me on bluetooth, they have aptx,and they have the ability to raise the SQ when going wired, and take another boost when amped!! In a comparison test of my own against the AKG K550, which is a wired closed back reference headphone, the Sony out did the AKG even when the AKG was connected to a amp and the Sony was just pushing bluetooth.. 

 

Now, looking at your sky high budget, I haven't tried the Senn 550 X, which should be just as good or better than the Sony MK2.. Just my two cents..

I have been messing with my ue9000 since yesterday and a/bing them with my v-moda m100 which I love very much for my edm. OMG! These ue 9000 are powerful wired and in bluetooth even more powerful. I thought my m100 was strong and they are but the ue9000 has so much more oomph I have to lower the volume. They also seem to have more separation very nice. The one thing I don't like about them is they are large, they stick out from the sides of my head so much, I can actually see the cups from the corner of my eyes! My m100 are pretty nice and flush which I like, I'm in my 40s and I like things more subdued. I was planning on keeping one and selling the other very tough to decide. I might have to keep both. How are the sony Mdr 1rbtmk2 compared to the ue 9000 and m100 sound signature? I listen to mostly edm, and I never looked into the original Mdr because I heard they lack bass, and highs were sharp.quality bass that can go deep is important to me, and I like smooth highs not sharp, it's gets annoying with edm. So far the ue9000 is a dam good bluetooth headphone, I'm wondering if they are working on a newer model?
post #300 of 424

I haven't audition them, but from reading the specs, the UE9000 is a great BT headphone. IMO, and I might be alone on this, but any BT headphone, IMO, must have the aptx codec.  The UE9000 has it.` Again, without even hearing them, I would chose the UE9000 over the Parrot Zik, and the Sony MDR 1RBT. The Parrot and the first Sony MDR 1RBT, doesn't have aptx.. However, Sony caught on and released the MK2 Sony. In looks, exactly like the 1RBT, but with about 5 improvements, along with the aptx.. Sony only released the MK2 model in Japan. I went "gray market" to get mine, and I am fully satisfied.  BTW, the Sony has "comfort" that is out of this world too.
