Wireless Headphones
« on: December 06, 2018, 03:56:08 AM »
Hi

I would like to use wireless headphones with my DGX 660. Has anyone done this or know if it can be done? I would like some suggestions on how to accomplish it.

Thank you,

Tony

Most wireless headphones are Bluetooth and have latency .. i.e. the sound reaches your ears a fraction after it is created, which is not noticeable when listening to recordings or radio. But itís useless for live playing because what you play and what you hear will be out of sync.
There may be wireless systems that do not have this latency, and maybe someone else will comment on that, but at the very least you need to test the headphones while actually playing a keyboard, to make sure there is no latency and not just listen to recorded music through them in the store.

There is confusion with the words Wireless & Bluetooth as they are not the same product.
German WELLTECH Wireless Headphones (not bluetooth) Initially purchased for wife's TV as her hearing is poor, at £20 from LIDL I was not expecting a great sound but in fact these out perform my expensive Sennheiser Pro's with clean detailed mids & very low tight bass.
When wife's not using them I use Wireless headphones on my T2. No latency with these and perform very well and take the signal from the T2 headphones socket. When not using they sit on a charging base station.

You can use a headphone that use radio frequencys. They are still available but harder to find.

If I understand you correctly, RF Headphones will work using an adapter in the Headphones output on the back of the Keyboard to connect RCA jacks to the transmitter/charging base.

That's correct. I'm using such a headphone myself and it works without latency.

Not sure there is confusion, but bluetooth is so dominating the market its just hard to find anything else. I went into a store that had about 50 different types of headphones, maybe 2/3 of them were wireless, and every one of those was bluetooth. I finally decided that the wire was no big deal when I am sitting at a keyboard, ad stopped searching for suitable wireless..
Another thing to watch out for is battery leaking on wireless or noise cancelling phones. My wife bought me an expensive pair of Bose noise cancelling phones, and I left them at our place in the UK. When I went back some months later the batteries had leaked and ruined the phones.
You are lucky to have found a good pair of wireless phones for only 20pounds, and re chargeable into the bargain. In LIDL of all places. For people here in the USA that have never heard of LIDL, its really a budget grocery chain. Sometimes they have most surprising things, -- then never have them again ;D

I did a search and there are several Wireless RF Headphones on Amazon along with the proper adapters.

Thank you all for helping with this project.
