We purchased this A/V Receiver and I am looking for a headset - I sit about 11' from the TV but sometimes walk a farther.

I was just looking around only and found Set of 2 Wireless Headphones but it does not say how it connects. I am guessing USB since it says it connects to a TV and most do not have a headphone jack.

I am guessing that I need a Bluetooth device for this to help keep me "mobile".

I found Sony MDR-IF240RK Wireless Headphone System but t did not say what is used. I looked at the Sony site and it said it was no longer available - so that might be out of the question. I found Sony MDRRF985RK Wireless RF Headphone, Black and it seems to be a possibility.

Can anyone recommend some recommendations for this? The more the better smile.gif

Thank you very much!

Corey

Only PCs and certain game consoles work with USB headphones. TVs and AV receivers don't, so that that first device you found almost certain is meant to be hooked up to a headphone jack. While fewer and fewer TVs have headphone jacks these days, it wasn't that long ago that they were nearly universal.

Note that any sort of wireless headphones that you hook up the front headphone jack of your receiver will automatically mute the speakers as long as something is plugged into the headphone jack. You may be able to use the pre-out jacks at the back instead if you don't want this behaviour.

Well I don't want any sound coming from the speakers at all - only from headset itself. And one is fine. I have insomnia and sometimes I don't want to wake everyone else up but I would like to hear the TV.

I have a Logitech H800 - I don't know if that would work or not.

No, those Logitech wireless headphones use Bluetooth to connect to a USB dongle. You need something where the wireless transmitter plugs into a headphone jack, like on a TV or an AV receiver.
