Please recommend me a good wireless audiophile headphone

1007 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  bdht
I haven't looked into headphones before, so feeling a bit lost and need your help.

I have the following Atmos setup in my home theater:

HTPC -(HDMI)-> AVR -(HDMI)-> TV
AVR -> 5.1.2 Atmos Speaker Setup

I am looking for a high quality headphone system to insert into the setup above with following:
- (must) wireless
- (must) high quality / audiophile
- (must) multiple (2) headphones can be used at the same time to listen the same feed
- (preferred) supports 5.1+ multichannel / atmos / etc
- (nice to have) merges into the above setup seemlesly (I can easily switch from headphones to speakers without messing around with cables)

Thank you!

kinda complicated...

lets see, as far as the switching goes you would just need to change the output in windows or in the media player.

from the media player you would send the audio to a binaural renderer like Waves NX.

the htpc would output to a bluetooth transmitter. I believe a bluetooth 5.0 transmitter and headphones can connect multiple headphones at the same time.

and then any wireless headphones with bluetooth 5.0 like an Audeze Mobius.

I have null experience with bluetooth and windows so i cant advise on what transmitter to purchase.

I believe creatives sxfi will be adding this functionality in the near future, a base that accepts 5.1 and outputs surround to multiple wireless headphones.

You can also split the signal with an optical toslink splitter to separate wireless headphone bases or split analog to separate bluetooth 4.0 transmitters
