About the only can I can recommend is the Sennheiser MM 450 travel
 
It's on a Headfi Tv, episode 7 I think
 
The blutooth tech has it's problems and to have good audio quality, you have to pay a premium.
 
Other then that, everything sounds cheap and you just get a better looking device then anything else.
 
 
If you want full sized cans, you can ask. But bluetooth is stuck to portables

Thanks,
 
what about the Turtle Beach product ? (I think the Ear force PX5 support both RF and Bluetooth) (it has a dock station for when @ home, and is bluethooth ready for when going outside... I think..)
 
 
 

 

I don't mind paying a premium. Just can't find any.



That is the premium. 450 travel is the only can, other then it's big brother the around ear, which I can tell you to get
 
Other then that, all the others will just look better, have more volume and sound like a ear peice
 
Watch Headfi Tv episode 7 to have him tell you about them

If you don't mind having a separate setup for the laptop and gaming, try looking into the Astro Wireless MixAmp 5.8. You could plug in an existing, wired headphone into the unit.

That is the around ear model
 
Even the industry insider said so.
 
It's a premium and I wouldn't mind out paired to my Cowon S9
 
ah... just think:
 
Cowon S9 with long battery life
Bluetooth headset
walking around without Cowon through my apartment.
Awesome.

I don't see the point of having a seperate bluetooth receiver when you can have one built-in your headphone directly ?



The point would be that there is a very limited number of headphones with Bluetooth built-in. If you have a favourite headphone already, and the only thing it lacks is Bluetooth, then the receiver would let you add that functionality to an otherwise perfect solution.

The MM 550 Travel are very comfortable, circumaural headphones. They may not be as large as the HD 650 or HD 800 but they'll provide you with a nice, snug fit and won't fall off easily. Personally, I prefer them to the MM 450 Travel

2 Questions:
 
1- The only reason I did not want the "around ear" ones is that I supposed it would be uncomfortable when layed on a bed making calls on skype... maybe I'm wrong with this? I've never tried any. If it happens to be as comfortable as any other smaller sets, I'd be more than happy to buy one. Do you have any idea ?
 
2- I see that the MM 550 is'nt as big as many other "around the ear" units, Do you think this would still be comfortable layed on a bed with this, or would it be to cumbersome?
