Ave,

I'm looking to buy a nice pair of headphones, with these requirements:

True 5.1 Surround Sound
Wireless
Optical (TOSLink) Input

Basically I'll be using the headphones for two inputs ... XBOX 360 Gaming & Blu-ray movies. I want to be able to plug the Optical output from either into the Headphone unit to receive true 5.1 Surround Sound. The unit doesn't need to have 2 Optical Inputs ... 1 would be fine. I can switch the input depending on what I need.

Would like to stay under $200 ... unless necessary.

Thanks!

Yamaha RX-A2000 AVR
Epson 5010 3D Projector
Intel Sandy Bridge 3D HTPC / Blu-ray Player

The Panasonic RP-WF6000-S might be just the ticket depending on your definition of "true":

They have two optical inputs and decode the various flavors of 5.1 surround sound. I find them to be fairly heavy but quite comfortable. Sound is very good although there is a slight bit of background hiss during silent parts of movies. The surround effect is decent.

That's a nice pair; two optical inputs is a BIG plus. I'm keeping it in on the list.

Thanks!!

Sony MDR-DS6000 only has one optical input, but it gets rave reviews...and since Sennheiser launched its new 160,170,180 line it has dropped below $200 now.

Do any of these systems support two sets of phones from one base? I'm not finding anything on the OEM websites.

Hi,

I have the Pioneer DIR-SE2000C 5.1 headphone system - it is excellent if you can get a hold of one, I also have the Philips HD-1505U which (very surprisingly for Philips) is also excellent. Both have all the various connections you want.

Bazzy!
