We all know that the use of headphones is an essential while filming and yet the headset cable is a nuisance - either too long or too short and it gets in the way. The bit of research into this area seems to leave out their application for camcorders - mainly for general sound sources and "multi-tasking". Can anyone recommend a unit that will work with camcorders and give the freedom from cables. Will, for example, the Sennheiser RS 160 do the job?
Thanks, Alexian

I would stay away from wireless for shooting, especially if you are using wireless mics. not to mention the specs are not that good.

Thanks Harry,

that's the way it is and may have to stay.

Blue Tooth headphones I think work on totally different frequencies to wireless mics so thought I might just get away without causing hassles.

I havn't come across anyone who has tried this solution, they prefer wired headsets; but then again they also prefer wired mics to wireless.

Just thought I'd ask in case anyone has had success.

Best wishes, alexian
