Thread: Any recommendations for over the ear wireless headphones ?

  1. #1

    Any recommendations for over the ear wireless headphones ?

    I have a pair of Bowers & Wilkins wireless over the head which I use for watching the TV/Youtube but I do find them a little heavy and uncomfortable if worn for two or three hours, so I was wondering if there was any good over the ear phones about such as the one below which is 16.99 on ebay, I can't get on with ear buds, these from ebay might be good but they do seem cheap and I want something decent that will also last.

    Avantree make lots of different types and concentrate on low latency which is important for TV. RF sets are best of all for this as radio has much less lag than Bluetooth.

    I had a pair of these on trial and they were absolutely fabulous.

    On sale at the moment too - that would be a bargain.

    Depends on your TV. If you can connect headphones to it via bluetooth then you'll have no issues. If not then you'll almost certainly need wired earphones or an adaptor of some sort.

    Think you're getting some terminology mixed up, over ear is what you are calling over head, which isn't a thing

    Over ear refers to ones with a headband and cover over your whole ear, like the ones mr Noble linked to
    On ear are similar, but smaller diameter, so they sit on the side of your ear rather than completely covering it
    What you're looking for sound like 'open ear'

    Thanks like you say my terminology could be wrong but I am looking for ones like the photo I posted.

    I've had a pair of Beats powerbeats pro for 2 years now and they have been faultless...worn for running, watching movies on tablet, daily work zoom calls, the works...look as good as new and the sound quality and comfort is excellent...expensive but worth it in my book
