Any good wireless headphones out there?

Everything I have seen or been able to actually try out in person hasn't been too impressize.

Also if there is one out there that I can use 2 headsets that would be perfect.

I don't need to cover a great distance just trying to reduce wires.

If there isnt anything that works I need to figure a small patch board or get a small reciever (really only going to have two consoles plugged in). This is for a bedroom so don't need a fancy speaker setup here

Turtle beach are middle of the road at best nowadays. There is a corsair headset that runs on a usb port that is FANTASTIC but its a bit pricey. I have an arctic p311 headset thats bluetooth that i really like the audio quality on for the price ($30)

I'm not seeing any of these say anything about using 2 headsets together. Should I plan on getting a splitter and two headphones with different freq?

Ill have to check if the tv has a usb slot for the corsair.
Will have to also check about bluetooth on the tv.
And the turtle beach ones had a review mention signal conflicting with the wireless router.

Looks like the best I have is a single optical audio output. Did the corsair need usb for power only or for all sound as well?

Looks like all I really need to use the arctic set of headphones is one of these Adapters - Telme2

hmm, new question after looking at those.

Headphone transmitters like those and the turtle beach ones have the optical audio pass through, so you can have audio continue on to a set of speakers right?

Does that mean you can have the headphones and the speakers working at the same time?
