Our AssessmentAmazon.com reviews are most useful when you've already narrowed your choice. User comments can be subjective and sometimes aren't very relevant to performance, but many headphones get lots of feedback, making it easy to spot general trends. These reviews are especially good for learning about comfort and long-term problems. Some older headphones attract hundreds and even thousands of posts.

Our AssessmentBestBuy.com sells fewer wireless headphones than Amazon.com, and most attract less user feedback. Still, what's here can help indicate how well a set of wireless headphones performs. We especially like a rating that indicates what percentage of owners would recommend a given pair of wireless headphones to a friend.

by Contributors to Newegg.com
Our AssessmentNewegg.com contributors tend to be more tech savvy than those at general retail sites, but the number of reviews of wireless headphones is limited. Only a few Sennheiser models attract substantial feedback. Posters must indicate whether they own the wireless headphones in question and self-rate their technical know-how, which helps establish credibility.
