Which headphones should I buy? (RF vs IR)

Looking for decent headphones to watch tv late at night without bothering anyone else...

I think I've narrowed it down to these two...

Cables Unlimited 900MHz Wireless Stereo Headphones (SPK-9100) [RF]



Sony MDR-IF240RK Wireless Headphone System [IR]


which would be overall better? I have line of site, so IR shouldn't be a problem.

I don't use wireless headphones, but I have tried these:


Sennheiser makes some of the most comfortable headphones. I use the HD595 with a long extension for my late night movies. I prefer not having to worry about charged batteries, interference, and degraded sound quality.

Have you been able to go out and try any of your selections on? Comfort can be a very individual thing, and comfort seems like a key for tv/movie headphone listening where you could be wearing them for hours.

Wired, all the way x1000. Don't fool with wireless, or if you do, you'll learn the hard way.

Sony V-6 or Sennheiser 595.
