Does anyone have any experience of these, they all look rather bulky, but its difficult to judge from a picture.

This is what I had in mind.

I use wireless headphones and think they're great.
Light in weight too and mine (Sony) charge in their cradle.

Sennheiser are a very good make.

Coffee Adict,

I have used Sennheiser wireless headphones for a few years now, and have no qualms in recommending them to anyone. They are quite bulky, but very comfortable when on.

These ones are a step up, from the ones you have linked to, and are slightly cheaper. click here

Wife and I have a hearing conflict meaning the TV is never the right volume for both of us.
Answer wireless headphone each.
I purchased two sets of Weltech at Lidle last November. One Base station remains in the box as a spare- and both phones operate from the one station[I have tried experimentally] hhaveing the 'spare wet up to the audio system and tunded to another channel -yup it worked Shwe watch E/E whilst I turned my swivel to the window and listend to Classic FM
They cost £1899 per set I seem to Recall

Now can you buy direct from Welltech I wonder?
As lidle do not stock much- they just buy and sell on a when its gone its gone basis.
The phones have turned up annually near Christmas[There is a surprise]
Here is Weltech addy if you are interested

I too use Sennheiser but after a few years the recharge does not last too long otherwise very good. prior to that tried sony but after 3 sets gave up due to poor signal/reception.

I also use wireless headphones and recomend them, you get used to having them on, a bit like when you first wear glasses, they are a god send when doing house work, moving around from room to room with good cd makes the work go faster.

Don't wish to hi-jack the thread, but I tried wireless headphones several times a few years ago (different makes) but all suffered from background hiss.

Can current users confirm this has been ironed out?

laurie53 had that with sony ones apparently down to metal pipes and radiators in the room according to sony, Sennheiser work perfectly with good sound.

Around you I guess.
Background his can be local interference from a similar device.
Does the model you have the opportunity to select different channels for example?

laurie53 - I don't mind you hijacking this thread, all information is useful.

I have been reading various reviews, although some are quite old and hiss is mentioned even on the Sennheisers by some people. One thing that was mentioned a couple of times was the loose fit of the Sennheisers, now contary to popular belief I do not have a large head I wonder if this may be a problem.

Coffee Adict,

the band is adjustable, and I (having a normal size head, I hope!), always found them to have a good grip, while being comfortable.
