We just got a fab new 5.1 and its awesome.

But when gaming its so bloody loud, especially in fights when guns are blazing and swords are clashing so i keep telling husband to turn it down (we have an 80 odd year old dear next door and its not fair to have it too loud) and he ends up saying we might as well unplug it!

Im thinking about buying some wireless headphones for using after say 930pm, but can you have 2 pairs running because obviously we both want to hear it!

RF (radio frequency) it might be possible, if you get two sets that can listen in to the same frequency. IR (Infra Red) less chance of this being possible. But to be honest I don't really know, never having tried it.

But for standard headphones take your pick [click].

2 sets of RF or IR headphones will work fine at the same time. Just connect one base station to your amp or TV.

I use these:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sennheiser-9...7111906&sr=8-1

Excellent headphones as far as wireless units go.

You can buy additional headsets so no reason you couldn't have two of them picking up the same transmission ..... just tune them both to the same frequency. (They're RF)

The above link is the headphones with transmitter unit. You can buy additional headphone sets separately. (eg. http://www.hifiheadphones.co.uk/senn...rodid-641.html)

Should work for the cheaper models by Sennheiser as well. (Rs110, RS120 etc)

Its an LCD tv


so basically, i need an RF pair of headphones and a transmitter which i plug into the DVD player (or is it telly?) and any more RF headphones I buy i can tune into that one transmitter? And in theory i could have as many wireless headphones as i liked, all tuned in? i could have a Silent Disco!!! in MY house!

Yup.

Thats about the size of it.

Not sure how well one brand of headphones would work with a different brands reciever, you'd need to check what frequencies they use, but if it's the same brand throughout, and RF, then yes .... silent disco here you come!

(You can plug the transmitter into whatever you like .... line-out or headphone, both should work - well, line-out is OK with my Sennheisers, other brands you'd need to check)
