    Default Wireless headphones

    Has anyone tried using them, particularly in DJ booths at parties and such. I figure that using wireless headphones would make life easier because there is no hassle with cables (besides the power cable for the base station).

    Whats the word on wireless headphones

    The most common wireless headphones operates via bluetooth, like the parrot ziks (works very good btw). And since there is no mixer with bluetooth on the market its not a ideal solution. Although you could perhaps find some adapter but i guess it would be a hassle.http://www.parrot.com/zik/usa/

    and unless you want to use something like sennheiser rs180 (made for home use, with a basestation that charges/sends the info to the phones).
    There is not really much to choose from. Although there is one model which i like, the akg http://headphones.productwiki.com/akg-k-840-kl/. It's just a on ear headphone which is quite small and portable but not really made to shut out enough db for letting you be able to mix in a club.

    Boiling this down.. a curled cord still is the best.

    Bluetooth headphones would introduce additional latency to your monitoring.

    Exactly what I told a coworker the other day that was singing the praises of them, I can't see how they would be accurate. Would love to be proven wrong, as I need to get a new pair of headphones soon.
