    Hello, everyone!
    I'm on the hunt on wireless headphones and have some questions. Are they really better? And can they work with PC and smartphone? And the last one, which wireless headphones better to choose? Where I cand find some comparisons or maybe reviews?

    Hi, welcome to AR.

    You may want to post your question at Head-Fi.org which is dedicated to headphones and other gear. People there are helpful. They helped me pick out a pair of wired headphones

    Cool Be ready to pay more for good bass

    Previously, I had wireless headphones. They were cheap, maybe that's why I was dissapointed of using them... But, as a lot reviews say, Beats and Sony are the best . They really have great sound! If you highly appreciate the realistic sound, as if you were present at the concert, these headphones have been introduced especially for you. The main con is price. They're expensive enough. But I think, if you want enjoy deep bass, try them!

    I don't know what or where you find reviews. Stick around here for a while and you'll learn that amongst audiophiles and music lovers Beats headphones are almost universally disliked. The most common complaint is over the top boomy bass. If you want to read some headphone reviews that have a lot of credibility check the link below.

    BTW: I've heard all of Beats products. They are very popular in the inner city where I live. IMO they sound truly awful. I would hardly call them expensive. Are they overpriced? They most certainly are. Expensive, well that's a matter of perspective. I consider Koss electrostatic headphones at ~$900 a bargain. OTOH, my Grado SR60i's @ $79 are IMO also a bargain while sounding better than any Beats headphone.

    Here's a few links about the true quality of Beats headphones. There are many more.

    Of course, you may prefer the sort of boomy distortion filled sound many car stereos have.

    You also need to determine if your are an on ear or around the ear person. I prefer around the ear. On ear headphones start to hurt my ears after 15 minutes.

    I listened to the HK BT's a year ago. They have a nice sound with good bass but they are on ear. They are not as good as my AT MX50's wired phones

    The one below is a newer model

    Easier? yes, no cables getting on your nerves? yes, but better ? No. The wireless headphone's are awesome ofcourse but if you want to know if they are better i suggest you just take one with the wire for better quality and no delay.
