    You may want to add the Pendulumic Tach T1 to your list.
     
    I mentioned them earlier in this thread and highly suggested a pad swap to Shure alcantara pads (thus making them over ear), but even with the on ear stock pads, they offer pretty nice sound at the bottom end of your price spectrum ($249 on Amazon at the moment).

    Any idea if the Tach T1 supports AAC support?  The tech specs on their website only mentions Aptx.
     
    Apple's desktops and laptops support Aptx, but the iPhone does not.  Not sure if the lower quality on iPhone would be discernible since I'd mostly be a using wireless onear pair when out and about, but I'd rather have the AAC than not.

    Onkyo H500BT all the way!...So much better than the P5's, and much cheaper! One of the best Bluetooth headphones around and imo the best On Ear I've heard!
     
  4. Techfixation
    Before you ask the Onkyos are aptx and AAC

    i would recommend the P7 wireless, and the B&O headphones H7 and H8 maybe H9
    all of them support AAC and aptx, i have the P7 the H7 and the H8, i love all of them each has advantages,
    P7 best SQ 
    H7 best comfort and clear sound
    H8 best mobility with ANC and nice Sound

    Not sure, I don't have an iphone.
     
    There is a review of the Tach T1 here on Head-Fi where the reviewer was using his iPhone 6S:

    Thanks to both of you!  I'm going to look into the ones you've mentioned.
     
    If anyone else has any other suggestions I'd love to hear them [​IMG] 
     
  8. Techfixation
    I'd 2nd the P7's....imo the best Bluetooth cans available! The only reason I didn't mention them is that you were asking for On Ear.
     
  9. dfnj123
    Yeah, I am mainly looking for on-ear since they're generally smaller in size and better for portable use.  Regardless I appreciate the recommendation of the P7.  I understand they are viewed in very high regard.
     
  10. Sonic Defender Contributor
    On ear, Onkyo H500BT for sure. They still surprise me to this day. Although the P7 wireless was better, not really by that much I felt so I was able to sell the P7 and just kept the Onkyo. The H500BT is also not nearly as hot so you can wear it during the summer months and if like where I am you experience winter, it can even be worn under a hat.
     
  11. Ben LaFleur
    if i would not have the B&O H8 for i would buy the Onkyo H500BT after all that recommendation, but there are also not so many reviews of them, i tested them in a store and they are really comfortable hut the have not that solid feeling like my B&O. 
     
    i search now for good in ear BT but i think i take the Air Pods after all that good i heard about them

    Hello All,

     

    I wanted to provide my input on Bluetooth headphones and ask for your thoughts.  Over the past 6 months I have been trying to find “that” pair of Bluetooth headphones (comfort, sound, microphone, durability, cost).  I am still searching thanks to Amazon’s very generous return policy. 

    So here is what I have tried, giving each a 2-day period of testing.   I graded them considering cost, comfort, sound, microphone, and durability) **My opinion

    I am going to try the Sony MDR-ZX770BT & Onkyo H500BT to see how they perform.  I am open to other’s suggestions on a reasonable priced, quality Bluetooth headphone that need to be 1) comfortable 2) have a good mic & 3) pretty good sound.

     

    Thank You All

    Yeah the H8's are one of the best built headphones out there so compared to them the Onkyo's are never going to feel the best! However I still find them to be pretty well put together and I actually really like their understated design.
     
  14. Techfixation
    Sound wise the H8's and Onkyos both appeal to my taste with pronounced bass and a warm signature but I think the Onkyos just sound that little bit better, and at the expense of some premium material cost just a fraction of the price!
     
  15. Sonic Defender Contributor
    For sure. I still remain surprised how that little headphone can deliver such a solid sound signature. Not perfect of course, but for the money in my opinion, currently the H500BT is the best value to cost that provides really good quality sound. If they put more premium materials into it, the cost would rise quickly so I like the Onkyo approach of nice materials, lower cost, but very good sound quality. The P7 wireless is of course the current king of those I have owned, but frankly the Onkyo is pretty close and more comfortable to boot.
