yeah just buy whatever Sennheiser or AKG wireless that you can afford and it will work nice.

No, not true. The general consensus here is that the Pioneer SE-DIR800Cs are a pretty good deal, or you can get the 800C base with the Audio-Technica ATH-DCL3000R cans too.

I picked up the 800Cs a few years back for $300 shipped and they do a decent job for a pair of wireless Dolby Headphones (uses true Dolby Headphones). Check out http://www4.head-fi.org/forums/showthread.php?t=59210

Anyone know if I can use my 800C base with the DIR2000C cans and if they're any good? If not I just might save up for the expensive ATs...

If you go wireless, you're going to take a significant sound quality hit, all for the sake of not having an ambilical cord going to your amp. Are you really sure that's okay with you?

Describe what you're after in sound and we'll try to help you. Headphones can vary a lot when it comes to their flavour.
