Wireless headphones...
« on: January 04, 2013, 05:18:44 PM »
Need some advice guys, I'm looking to get some Wireless/Bluetooth headphones. Yes I am aware some are having issues atm with BT on the Nexus 7 but I also want to use these with my Nexus 4 and PS Vita so I'm wanting to get them soon.
I'd rather not any mobile OEM headphones and steering clear of the Beats line but I have seen a couple of sets I like and was wondering if anybody had experience with them and more specifically with them and the Nexus 7...

Novero Rockadale

And...

AKG K830


Any thoughts?

I mostly use my Bluetooth headphones outside when I'm walking or working in the garden/yard.  The first pair I used was from Motorola.  Sorry I don't remember the model number.  They lasted me about three months before shorting out from my sweat.  Since then, I've had good luck with Rocketfish.  These are the Best Buy brand.  They retail for US $60 but are often on sale for 30-40 dollars US.  The pair I'm using now are about 9 months old and have been rained on and received lots of sweat.

My ears are old and failing, but the sound quality is adequate for me.  I mostly listen to audiobooks, internet radio and TWIT podcasts.  Here is the link:  Best Buy Bluetooth Headphones
I used to be crazy until I found out that insane pays more.

Where am I?  What am I doing in this handbasket?

I would also look at Sony and Motorola.

Well I bit the bullet, ordered the AKG's and received them today.

So far so good, they connect to both my N7 & N4 and sounds awesome. Will report back when I've used them more.
