Just wondering if anyone knew if it was possible to get head phones without the wire to use to a PC? Maybe some type of headphones you can buy and they connect to your Computer using a code of some type?

Cheers in Advance.

My stereo Bluetooth headphones (which I normally use with my phone) work fine with the computer as well. Obviously your computer needs to have Bluetooth.

There will be a lead on the transmitter with a 3.5mm jack on the end. Plug it in to the headphone/line out socket on the PC.

Actually I think some WIRELESS over the ear headphones that would work with my PC would be good.

I like the look of these but not sure if they are over the ear as it doesnt say, plus it doesnt say if it would work with my PC.

That's just a normal Bluetooth phone earpiece and it's mono.

OK do you think this one would work for connecting to a PC and for skype as there is no way I can see an option to contact seller.

Yes, if you only want a mono output.

What are you going to use as a microphone for Skype?

What is a Mono Only Output? Is there a better alternative to Mono Only Output? WHat is the difference between a Mono and another type?

Going to use the Mic on the webcam as the mic for Skype, just want a around the ear wireless headphones rather than the wired ones I have at the moment.

Ohh and I need one that doesnt actually go inside of your ear but just slots on over your ear.

Tesco were clearing iCandy Bluetooth stereo headphones for 10 recently. Though they've sold out online.
I'm sufficiently impressed at that price.

Hmm I have spent a good couple of hours calling around places trying to find somewhere either online or a shop that sells a Around the ear wireless Bluetooth headset that doesn't go inside the ear but that just goes over the ear. If anyone knows of one online, please send me a link. WOuld most appreciate it.

It means it isn't stereo as only one speaker in the plantronic earphone.

Jabra do a nice one with stereo head phones ( that means you get 2 speakers one for each ear.

Well, this is the one I really like

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Jabra-Suprem.../dp/B005QYNLJM

It fits over the ear and it fits around the ear. It doesnt go into the Ear Canal and its wireless and bluetooth. However, its really expensive. Does anyone know anyother ones that are like that
