Choice of wireless headphones for the Q40

Post by Resurgam » Sat Nov 11, 2017 10:05 pm

Up until now, I have always used wired headphones; except when I attempted to rig up a set of my making and totally failed. Seeing that the wireless headphones that will be in the box with my machine when it arrives on Monday will be quite small and I would have prefered a set with earcups that fully cover the ears.

How are you guys and gals finding the performance of the standard wireless headphones that come with your machine and have any of you replaced them with a set of alternative wireless headphones and at what price?

Thanks in advance for any replies.

To be honest I don't tend to use headphones much as tector has volume control on it,but on the odd couple of times I've worn the wireless ones they are absolutely fine,you just press the b/tooth button on control unit......turn on the headphones & hey presto they're linked up,volume control is on one of the headphones and they are very clear & comfy ::g [:) ::g

I have to say the wireless ones that came with the Q40 are fantastic. Yes they are smaller than the full cup ones but they connect instantly, are lag free and the battery lasts a hell of a long time. I use them all the time and find them comfortable.
