I am currently using Sennheiser's wired headphones and do not have speakers for my rig.

I am contemplating picking up wireless headphones for my rig so i can watch TV/Movies in my room from the comfort of my bed.

I hunted online for a few models and I found these

Sennheiser RS 130
Sennheiser RS 140

Pioneer SE-DIR800C headphones http://www.pioneerelectronics....nes/ci.SE-DIR800C.Kuro

Sony DR-BT50

Panasonic RP-WH5000

Can anybody give me reviews and/or comparisons of these products to help me decide.

Thanks.

I got a pair of the Sennheiser RS 130s off of woot for ~70 bucks or so. Refurbed but I haven't had any issues with them so far. They're only my first pair of wireless headphones but I think they're comfortable and sound good enough for me.

but i am still unable to find a review for the Panasonic RP-WF6000-S. I want to compare it to the Sennheiser RS 140 and the Pioneer SE-DIR800C

Would radio frequency transmitting headphones interfere with my router and/or cordless phone in my room?

Router (transmits at 2.4 Ghz ) and Phone (Transmits at 900 Mhz)

If it is the case isnt the infra red option more viable?

YTou should be ok. I wouldnt recommend IF because you would be limited in movement. (line of sight)

I've got a set of the Sony DR-BT50's and think they are a fine pair of cans. Excellent bass response for a powered set. Also very comfortable--no problems falling asleep with them on as happens often. Also, the claim for 18 hours of operation between charges seems pretty accurate. They definitely rate an audition, pricey but worth it IMHO.

[edit] I wouldn't bother with anything that isn't bluetooth. Analog transmission is noisy, lots of hiss, cracking/popping/buzzing, and losing signal lock. Bluetooth may not have the range of the analog phones, but the sound is generally far far superior.
