So not really for home theater but more for browsing you tube while the missus is watching her shows.

 

Would be paired to my surface pro 4.

 

I don't need high end but something that is comfortable and has a reasonable battery life. 

 

I bought a real cheap arse ($29) set off of one day but they just kept disconnecting by themselves all the time.

 

Any help would be most appreciated.

 

Jase

The sonys I have are by far the best reception of any BT headphone I have tried. Can walk around everywhere and seldom even hear a tiny dropout. The bose and kmart cheapies I have are constantly skipping, and sometimes totally lose signal if the phone is in back pocket. Sony is sweet as when phone is in the same pocket.

I only have the mdr-10bt and these ones https://www.noelleeming.co.nz/shop/audio/portable-audio/headphones/sony-mdrzx770bn-headphones/prod139114.html which are both great. Noise cancelling might be a bonus if its to isolate you from the wifes shows and inevitable talking.

I don't know if anybody else is as impulsive and can't wait like me but "SNAP" and I now have these to use tonight. Down from $328.00 to $199.00 tongue-out
