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!

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.

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.
