mini Leader!

Any and all of the above will work. Depends on if you need new headphones... and how serious you are about the sound. there are some really nice BT overears for under $100.

Wags,

I'm with Matt. Just get a set of bluetooth headphones. I haven't used wired headphones in a very long time. The only reason we have them is for Little M and she only uses them in school.

Bluetooth can have connection issues. Wired always works.

And their batteries don’t start flaking out after three years.

I recently picked up “OnnEar” Bluetooth headphones for ~ $11 at Walmart. Hi-Fidelity they’re not but, for an inexpensive BT headset, they do a reasonable job,

Love my Bluetooth options including Bose and Apple.

My wife really likes her beats Bluetooth earbuds that go around her neck. USBC charging too as they are not ‘Apple’!

Haven't used wired headphones in a long while. Before getting AirPod Pros, I used my Sony MX100m3 via Bluetooth (these have a wired option as well). Really nice noise cancellation and good sound. However, the AirPod Pros are easier to travel with and do a good job.

It's aways good to have a pair or two of wired headphones handy.

BT is nice, very convenient, and the sound quality is usually acceptable.

But the vagaries of BT can be many, adversely affecting one's listening experience.

I've got lots of BT earbuds that give ok audio, and a few that provide decent audio.

But great wired earbuds can be had for the same or less money than great BT earbuds, and they aren't disposable.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.
