shall I boldly suggest this... since you mentioned WIRELESS. I wasn't particularly interested in bluetooth headphones in their performance.... but this does sound impressive for a wireless. My brother got his at the airport for $349. He found out later that stereo causeway point is on promo for $199.

My apologies, bro. I posted the wrong model while in a hurry. They do look exactly the same though. OK.... now the updated one. And yes, they work with bluetooth or wires.

because... I want to have an idea of the whats and what nots, and a general understanding of headphones before heading down to do fieldwork.

Too many have died from the smooth groove of veteran salespersons. I cannot allow myself to become another victim.

good idea. If you head down without knowing anything, you might just return home with a pair of bijous.

Have you ever heard about the Kenwood Brand! I have the Kenwood KH-C711! I'm quiet happy with them! Quality are excellent and they are as good as Denon!

They have a a nice warm sound signature. They have good details and definitions, they’re pretty good on the mid-range but I hope high can improve a bit.

I tried the RX900 in Japan, it's pretty good too..it's slightly around $120 if you buy it from the shops in Japan...

and it's showcased together with all other headphone like sony, panasonic, denon, AT, etc...and I cannot hear much differences between the higher range one and this cheaper (around 1/2 the price) RX900....

worth a try..
