I'm after a pair of wireless headphones for watching TV in bed on those nights she wants to read or sleep early.  Can anyone recommend options up to around the $150 mark?

Because they are to be plugged into a TV, I cannot use bluetooth headsets and headphones unless they come with a BT transmitter which plugs into the headphones out socket on my TV.

These are on sale at the moment.

These are probably worth a look at as well.

I bought some refurbished TURTLE BEACH EAR FORCE X41 headphones off ebay.

Pros;
- Really good sound.
- The transmitter plugs into my optical out on the TV but can use a headphone jack as well.
- The transmitter is USB powered which is great since its one less adapter to have plugged in.

Cons:
- I do get a bit of interference from my Genius WiFi which is in the same TV cabinet. This wasnt a problem when my router was in the kitchen.
- The ear cups are super comfortable but are rather big so I suspect a bit of sound may get out if you are watching TV in bed.

My advice, go for RF and RF only... not IR systems.
The Sony's linked to above look good, Philips will probably offer something else in your price range if you dig around.
