Best Bluetooth, Active Noise Cancelling Low Latency

by dobe12 / April 1, 2017 9:20 AM PDT


I use my headphones to watch TV. I can't seem to find any good quality over the ear headphones that have:

1. Bluetooth
2. Active Noise Cancelling
3. Low Latency
I've used Bluetooth noise cancelling phones but they have that latency issue that drives me crazy. I'm willing to spend a couple of hundred dollars or more.

PS. About lip sync.
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / April 1, 2017 9:25 AM PDT

If the issue is lip sync, I always have to check if the issue shows up without bluetooth.

In short, I've lost count of the times when lip sync shows up when not wireless. There's a lot of bad content out there that the sync is off.

Have you tried Bose sound ink 2.i just came across it for searching for best tv headphones and saw that it comes with some awesome features with Bluetooth on board.It's best from Bose and is goof for both Tv and smartphones and in case you are going to connect them with laptops then also you are good to go.

This Bluetooth earpiece has the best noise-cancellation

I myself own the Sennhieser MM450-X which IMO have a fairly effective NC (they call it NoiseGard).
Another good headphones in checked (but do not own) are the logitech UE 9000.
In case the NC is primarily the feature you're in to than you may want to check the the Bose QC 15 which are the best NC headphones - but not BT of course Cool
All in all I'm very happy with the MM450-X which really packs tones of technology into a compact and extremely comfortable piece.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
