Hi folks,

Ive been trying to google reviews on wireless headphones that can be used on an iPhone or iPad but am getting mixed reviews. I figured it might be best to post here as im sure im not the first to be out searching for this. Here is what im looking for.

- Wireless headphones to connect to iPhone or iPad. eg: bluetooth
- Have noise cancellation
- Have a microphone that can be used to answer phone calls or Facetime.
- Good sound quality for watching videos and answering phone calls.

I've checked out these models which ticks the boxes above but wasnt completely satisfied with it.

Logitech Wireless Headset H800 for PC, Tablets and Smartphones

Con: noise cancellation wasnt great on these, especially when there is a noisy background.

Turtle Beach i60

Con: The in-built microphone had terrible quality when answering phone calls and had a really bad lag.

I really like the LOGITECH G930 Wireless Gaming Headset but it doesn't connect up to iPhones and iPads unfortunately. At least thats what the reviews said.

Desperately looking for recommendations from those who have looked in this area.

Have a look at Sony MDR-10RBT:

They usually come on half price at Noel Leeming for $150. I have got their older brother, MDR1RBTMK2 which are rather good. But the MDR-10 are pretty lightweight and comfy as well and their sounds is not that bad..

I use a pair of SOL Republic Tracks Air wireless headphones - I use them for movies, music and gaming as well as phone calls etc.

They're fantastic, but are NOT noise-cancelling...simply noise isolating.

I'd recommend them if you like the sound signature - it's a quite bass-forward sound, but doesn't lack for high end clarity.

They come with cables that allow for use oni planes and when the battery dies (which will be after around 13-15 hours of use).
