TV headphones question

TV headphones question

Ok, so its not music, but I'm asking in here cause it's the closest of all the sub forums to my question.

I want to get some wireless TV headphones so I can watch the cricket without hearing Meghan Trainor. 

I don't want to spend big bucks, under $100 if possible. 

What should I look for? FM ones seem a little antiquated. I think Bluetooth would be better. My TV is not Bluetooth, so i'd need to get a dongle thing with them. Also, how do I disable BT headphones? Do I need to switch anything on the transmitter or can I just turn the headphones off?

Thanks all.

Bluetooth is your best bet. You can also get IR. If it were me I'd be looking for Bluetooth. They should be good for 15 meters coverage.
You should also be able to switch them off on the headphones. (A literal switch).

Oh and no Beats! Stay away from Beats at all costs.
I prefer Sennheiser myself.

JB Hifi have a reasonable pair of JBL headphones on sale at the moment for $79.

Otherwise you can do what I do, buy the cheapest pair to test the technology, then invest in a decent pair at a later stage.

Thanks @Steve85. I saw the JBL ones but they didn't have a transmitter from memory.

My question about turning them off is so that we can go back to using the normal volume if i turn them off without going over to the TV. #Laziness.

Oh. Sorry I misunderstood. So for mine the audio runs through the stereo and i can enable and disable the speakers via remote. Its a low tech way of doing a similar thing to what you're after. In that case, i dont have any specific models for you. Maybe give the cheapest a go? See if it works?
