Wireless headphones

Okay,

so I listen to my music at work, in a loud ass chemistry lab. I used to listen to it through just speakers and a receiver, but my boss is moving in a guy that absolutely hates any noise beyond listening to the various mechanical fans and pumps we have in our labs. My boss said, "make it work", and said that he'd put some money up for getting a pair of wireless headphones for me since he knows I work better listening to music instead of constant droning noise.

My question: What are the best wireless headphones under $200? I know the sound quality won't be as good as wired...but oh well.

Suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

-Jerred

So for the telephony world the folks at www.plantronics.com make the best headsets that work with Cisco phones. I'd start there for wireless headphones.

Otherwise, would it be more efficient to just get a decent pair of wired headphones with an iPod or some other player if you listen to FM?

Take care,

I have a set of Sony BT-????'s that I bought at Best Buy for under $100 that I've been very happy with.

They're Bluetooth, so I use them with my Blackberry phone on airplanes and while cutting the lawn and stuff, and then with my PS3 for gaming.

They sound pretty dang good, and work excellent for the price. I think there's a better qualilty pair for around $150 that can be had for closer to $100 on Ebay.

Check em out.
