Can anyone recommend good/high quality wireless headphones for under $100.00?

I think you either need to reduce your expectations or increase your dollar value. I use a set of
Logitech gaming cups for the computer but the ear pads eventually rotted out. I have a set of Bluetooth Bose for the iPad/iPhone. Supposedly Sony make a cheaper/ better alternative but I forget the model #.

I understand, however, there are lots for sale under $100.00 on amazon.ca and eBay. I don't want to get a cheap pair and it's been so long since I have been out of the audiophile side of things, I forget what specs I should be looking for.

get something with a big brand name on it and you’ll be happy

I’ll never buy without the try. Headphones have such a range that I’ll go through a dozen until I find ones I really like. I know they aren’t wireless, but my $70 pair of Audiotechnica phones were nearly as good as $300 pairs, so I suggest you try a bunch and see what you like best in your budget.

I’d really like cordless too as all my playing theses days is through effect/sims. I’m always getting messed up in the cord or running over it with the wheels of my chair

If you are using these for music production you should be concerned about the additional latency wireless, especially BT, may introduce. In any case, your are going to be sacrificing fidelity over convenience at your budget.

I usually go and look at reviews and sift through the different websites. Last year I needed a noise cancelling headphone that sounds good at the same time. Went through the reviews and ended up with a Sony wh-1000xms. My point is you will have to decide your priority. Is it the price, whether its comfortable, or audiophile sounding, etc You will also have to consider that bluetooth is not the best when it comes to transferring music, Anyway here is a link to reviews for what they recommend for whatever is your priority. For $100 I'd look for budget wireless headphones,

I'm likely going to buy a set myself sometime soon, but I'd be willing to spend just a bit more to get better sound. I'd set a budget at $200 and hopefully come in around $150.

I think setting the ceiling at $100 might be a bit optimistic.


Addendum: Now that I have looked through the list Chitmo provided even $200 is a bit rosy.

Looks like to get decent sound you're into $300~400.

For under $100? Not likely.

You guys are likely right but I thought I might get something on Black Friday. I think I'll check out the specs on something decent and then see what Black Friday brings about.

I am looking at these ones. Your comments?

I am presently using Sony XD200's which are wired and they are adequate for me. If the wireless ones are as good as the DX200's, then I would be happy with them.

Sony Over-Ear Noise Cancelling Truly Wireless Headphones - Grey
those look sweet, just remember that Sony spends most of its money on marketing and very little is actually spent on the product. these are just old and rebranded things that didn't sell when Zellers went out of business

Do they come in green?
Ha! Ha! You have a good memory. On the colour choices on eBay, I picked all colours but pink and...............................you guessed it, green. That said, after three years in our new place here in NB, I have a pretty decent green lawn. Of course, that is where green belongs.:)

Well, according to the description, you’ll experience unprecedented comfort and be blown away by the cleanest, most authentic version of your music that you’ve ever heard.

Tough to beat that I guess.

Though somehow I think maybe they’re just saying that and don’t really mean it.

I got a feeling its marketing but if Steadly bought them then probably not as he doesn't fall for that stuff

I spent around $500 each for 2 pairs of wired headphones last year. $100 for wireless is low. YGWYPF.
