    Wife says it is too loud, and that disturbs her. I love to listen to my movies LOUD. Had plug in phones years ago, but I've heard about the wireless kind. Can anyone suggest a good set, but not too expensive?

    Thanks

    How expensive is "too expensive"?
    I haven't bought yet, but I've been looking as well. There seems to be a trade-off regarding "how good is the wireless transmission" vs. "how good are the headphones themselves." Personally, I think the former is more important -- great headphones that accurately reproduce a noisy, static-filled signal don't seem like such a great idea.
    Amphony headphones http://www.amphony.com/ are said to be very good in the transmission (which is digital), but the headphones themselves are merely adequate. If/when I buy, I'm leaning toward these.
    Sennheiser's RS series is said to be very good headphones, but noisy in the wireless transmission.
    The XDream headphones http://www.xdreamfones.com/ may also be worth considering, though they are expensive and make the wearer look like a dork.

    Have you heard the xdream headphones? The one review made them sound quite impressive.

    You have two choices RF and Infared. I find Infared tends to be quieter but RF can transmit thru walls Infared cannot.
