Went to sennheiser website to find after reading this. Found this:
http://www.sennheiser.com/sennheiser...hi-fi-wireless

Whats their price range like? Any pros and cons? Places to find in sg?

Imagine having non stop music even when u are urgent for a toilet break.
price IIRC, the RRP for RS45 is 299 and RS65 is 399. but that is RRP.

i havent read the review and am afraid to read it... becoz im not financially ready for a new headphone yet .... lol
Dun worry. The cheapest pair only cost $50 and i got uses words like 'nothing spectacular'.

*whips out glue* STUCK!
Thank you once again.

Another great thread by afbug1.
There was the in-ears for outdoor, now there is this headphones more for in house.

Bro, u know of any wireless one? Those big chunky bulky ones nvm, wireless can liaoz. Coz i am more of a night pax, watching rock concert dvds or watching films and blasting them while jumping ard the room or simply lying on the bed.
Thanks. For Senn RS series, i not sure man. Not many own them i guess. They're much more expensive and for that price you pay, you can get a better pair of wired headphones. All full size Senns comes with 3m cable. For a all rounder headphone, eg movies, music and games, try Senn HD555.

Remember, wireless ones still must charge. Like cordless telephone. And might have some interference.

I happened to went Liang Court today. So went to that big electrical store on the 1st flr to look look see see.
Saw a few Philips wireless headphones. They range from $80-$100++. Are they any good???

Haha you very funny. lol. Wait till you try SAF's helmet. Dun worry, i'm not trying to convert you. Earphones are great, much cooler to use too, not so hot. I also prefer earphones and small size headphones. Not because of the weight but smaller ones not so warm.

Waa.....i tot we're talking about cheap and lightweight headphones. HD600's price itself is a heavyweight liao. Its many classes above the 3 i reviewed. BTW, lower end Grados are very light.

For the Philips, no idea man. And yes, not all models got a charging stand. Imagine, you forgot to charge and you watch movies at nite, then watch halfway, run out of batt. Can bang balls liao.

Just for the fun of it, welcome the 'best headphones' on this planet ever: The Sennheiser Orpheus (HE90 + HEV90 combo)


Happy saving and hunting for it!

but the problem of headfone is it nt potable.. so u bring ur headfone out or cresyn?
haha indeed i'm now bringing the senn headphones out. well the portability issue ain't that bad la, just that i gotta have a pouch or bag around when i want to keep them, unlike earphones which i can squeeze into my player pouch. and when i need to pick up calls, it's not as convenient as plugging one side of the earphones out, gotta strip the headphones off from my head and hang on my neck.

oh did i just say that portability issue ain't that bad?

but i don't mind la, as they give me better thumping bass. and the open air style can chase other commuters away from me . no disrespect to cresyn, they're great phones too. but well my cresyn seem to be having abit of problems so would like to conserve them

recent studies have shown that using in-ears for a prolonged period of time could result in permanent ear damage so I generally use earphones only when I am outside of home. currently using closed cans at home but my ears do get quite warm after some time...thats why still prefer using speakers. not really an audiophile though. heh.

You can try your luck at Hung Bros. But i dun think so cos must charge the batts. When in doubt, buy from a reputable brand. I'm not saying Philips is lousy. They got some very good stuff but their headphones/earphones are cheap and cut corners. So i think Senn will be safer. I've read reviews on the RS140 before. Not bad. Personally, i will buy a normal wired one. Cheaper, no need to charge and generally got better SQ.
