    Using Wireless Headphones out & about

    I want to buy some wireless headphones to use with my iPhone. I wouldn't be using them so much in the home, but more for when i'm out on my bike or on the train. My portable bluetooth speaker connects so easily without any external transmitter or power supply necessary. Do wireless headphones work in the same way? I've noticed that many come with a transmitter which you have to plug into whichever device you're sending to the headphones or which you need to plug into a power supply. I'm looking to buy a pair for around £100 (or below). The Sennheiser RS 160's look good enough for my needs but wanted some clarification on the transmitter issue.
    Thanks

    Thanks for quick reply. Just had a quick look. I'm looking for headphones that completely enclose the ear. It's just a personal preference as I like to cut out as much external noise as possible and I find them more comfy.

    That said, the price is great and in the Customer who viewed...also viewed: section, there are some with the style i'm after. So, should they all connect to my phone without any need for a separate transmitter?

    Wireless headphones such as RS160 will not connect to your phone since they do not use bluetooth.
    You specifically need bluetooth compatibility, preferably with A2DP support (I think, I'm no expert).
    My recommendation is to buy something like the Sony MW600 bluetooth adapter (which will pair with your phone) and then plug your choice of (wired) headphones into them.

    as above , i purchased the samsung ones though. work brilliantly, i use the supplied in ear phones at work .
    As stated you can plug any 3.5mm device in but i think cable length would be a stumbling block.

    it sounds like an option, but i really wanted to be completely wire-free. My current sony in-earphones and sennheiser wired headphones have long wires and if I was using a bluetooth adapter, it would mean i'm basically left with the same set up i have now, albeit plugged into a different device.

    It's cool, i'll crack on with finding bluetooth headphones. I just wanted to check that there were some available that didn't need a transmitter.

    amazon.co.uk/gp/…1_1?qid=1403110072&sr=8-1π=AC_SX110_SY165 How bout these? They have good reviews and dont need a reciever.

    If you can stretch to 140 then either the AKG K845BT or Sony MDR-10RBT look very good for the money

    If not, Richer Sounds are flogging JBL J56BT for 80
