The ATH-M50 comes in 3 varieties. 2 blacks, 1 white (nice looking if you're into stylish things). The black ones come with either a straight cable or a spiraled one. Prices seem to vary a lot as the straight cable ones I included were $109 at that time. Worth checking.

Default Will RF wireless headphone transmitter affect Blu Ray player?

Hi. I'm new to the forum, and am unable to start new threads right now, so I sincerely apologize for going off-topic, but I have a couple headphone-related questions. If someone wants to PM or email me with the answers so as not to take over the thread, that would be greatly appreciated.

I have a pair of wireless headphones (Sony MDR-RF925RK---radio frequency), and they use a contactless electromagnetic induction method to charge. You just place the headphones on the transmitter cradle and they begin charging. I have the transmitter placed on top of my Blu Ray player (Panasonic DMP BDT-215) because that seems to be the only place that I don't hear annoyingly invasive high-pitched interference through the headphones. However, the manual warns not to place the transmitter near anything that can be affected by magnetism (due to the electromagnetic charging method). Will having the transmitter on or near my Blu Ray player affect it (the player) at all?

(On a side note, why am I getting that high-pitched interference? The interference seems to be loudest when the transmitter is on the floor, and seems to be quietest when it's resting on my Blu Ray player or TV. Is there a way I can eliminate this interference? I can't seem to figure out what might be causing it; my Blu Ray player has built-in WiFi, but ironically, the interference is least obtrusive when the transmitter is resting on the player.)

Thanks so much.

I can vounch for that....for there price these are great speakers....deliver great bass as well. I use them as my main Headphone and also hook them up to my AV receiver for watching movies when it's late.

I highly recommend them.

happy you like yours, they are great for movie watching. In the same price range I would recommend the Fischer Audio FA-011 higher, as their mids and highs are better and bass is quicker, but they are almost impossible to purchase at those prices anymore. I guess once you get better known prices skyrocket.

easier to get, but way more expensive now from musicaacoustics still great cans at that price

I'm using mine right now. Some Spyro Gyra then some Lee Ritenour and right now Cassandra Wilson "Blue Light Til Dawn". They sound great with all these.

I've been looking at two sets of cans within this same price range, but I'm really having a tough time picking one over the other based on the reviews I've read.

The two models are:
- Shure SRH440 ($95)
- Creative Aurvana Live ($100)

Does any of you guys have experience with either or both of these models? Any recommendations?

I haven't but heard real good things about them, neutral sounding, not much coloration, if any. If you're interested in some you can save some $ and purchase their clone brothers (these are Chinese made cans sold to companies under their own brand, Brainwavz HM5 = Fischer Audio FA-003 = Jaycar Pro Monitors) Where they might slightly change is in what's included in the package. The Jaycar are Australian but only cost $50 (add $25 shipping or so). same headphones, just no fancy logo


Jaycar Pro Monitors

If you're in no hurry I should be getting mine in 2-4 weeks (still need to place my order though) But be advised that the Jaycars are popular in the headphone community since they are so cheap and tend to sell out fast and only come back in stock after a long while (unless Jaycar decided to order a bigger stock). Add to that that even the HM5 at around $150 is considered a great buy.

So my opinion, buy the Jaycars, for $75 shipped, even if you prefer a different type of sound they make a great pair of extras, having more than 1 pair is great fun, like switching speakers depending on your listening material.

So I ask this in another thread, but thought I would check here too. I'm looking for a wireless headphone set and was wondering if anyone has any suggestions that are around the $100-$150(max) range? I was at Best Buy yesterday and it looks like they only carry 2 models in store, a Sony and a Rocket Fish. I'm honestly just looking for something that I can sit in bed and watch a movie while the wife and boy are asleep.
Do you really have something to say or are you just in love with the sound of your keyboard?

Hey vette, got my Jaycars a little while ago and forgot to update. They are truly a very balanced monitor headphone. Very neutral with no weak point for the price. If you have a big head they might be tight a bit (I do) but the fit is so good that the pressure is well distributed. I can listen to them for hours. I would encourage you to get the Jaycars, nice carrying pouch (with form fitting foam), 1 extra set of pads, nice quality finish, most probably the best headphone out there for the price ($75 shipped, took 5 days through DHL). I catch myself using these more than my venerable vintage AKG K340 (which are in another class but somewhat sharp on the highs) I believe the Jaycars to be better balanced and totally non fatiguing to listen too. And at those prices you can't go wrong IMO

My decision is now between Audio Technica ATH-AD700 and Sennheiser HD 558

The ATH-AD700 can be had for $100 and I think represents the best deal and bang for buck. Not sure the extra $80 for the HD558 is justified for my occasional movie viewing.

Going to give both a listen
Sony KDS60A3000 SXRD 60" RP HDTV
Klipsch KLF-20, KLF-C7, RS-7
SVS 20-39PC subwoofer
Pioneer VSX-92TXH Elite, Onkyo TX-DS696 Receiver
Panasonic DMP-BD80 Blu-ray Player

I love the Sony V6



One very nice thing is they are fairly standard in production of AV so whenever I see "extra features" or studio footage of music and stuff like that, everyone is wearing them.

For example... I watch a lot of Pink Floyd videos and it's very common to see these in the studio footage or on stage (typically worn by who-ever is playing keyboards for example.)

Just grab a DVD with a making of feature and check out the people in production ... they always wear these... every time. I figure these are often used to make whatever I'm enjoying .. and they are under $100.

For example...



Roger Waters can afford anything.... but you see these whenever you see anyone in a studio.

Screw beats and Dr Dre ha ha.

Those are classics and are especially good for the price (can get them for ~$60). The Sony 7506 are the almost exactly the same so get whichever is cheaper at the time.

Default V-Moda - Crossfade LP's or M-80's

I own a DJ company have have a thing for headphones like most of us on this forum. I would say that overall for the money especially I would go with the V-Moda Crossfades. If you go to their site and select "Private Sale" you can buy like new refurbished units that are excellent and only $100 or so

Good luck!
