In reference to Giogio's post, he's actually asking the question on 'Bluetooth hiss' on my behalf! Thanks Giogio! : )
I'm looking for a decent pair of phones for watching movies late at night without having a cable trailing across the living room floor! They need to have great bass and a warm exciting sound as I think this will best suit the kind of movies I'll be watching!
This is my shortlist so far;
Philips Fidelio M2BT
Plantronics Backbeat PRO
Harman Kardon BT
Sony MDR-XB950BT (modded)
The most important thing is that they have very little to no background hiss at all!... Unlike listening to music, movies have lots of silent parts such as spoken parts and the audible hiss can be very distracting!
I'd be very interested to know whether anyone has any experience with the headphones above and can tell me how much hiss they put out?
Also if you have any other recommendations of other headphones that are great with movies?
If you are looking for wireles headphones purely for TV viewing you could consider the Sennheiser RS series. Not bluetooth but wireless nonetheless and generally better for Tv due to having less hiss and latency issues. Otherwise you could go down the route of using 2 Avantree Saturn Pros and using a normal pair of headphones.
If you want Bluetooth then the Def Tech I just reviewed would probably be a good option. Good bass response with NC on and no notiecable hiss. Of the ones you mentioned the I have tried the HK BT and the Logitech UE9000. Both had good bass though the logitech was somewhat artificially boosted. Both had a pretty noticeable hiss however.
