Question Advice request: wireless headphones, multiple channels

Hello,

For an audio VR project I am looking for an advice about wireless stereo headphones . The device should be stereo with good imaging (binaural contents) and low latency, without digital data reduction if possible. The latency excludes any Bluetooth device.

Also, several headphones should be used simultaneously (at least three) with different signals transmitted to all devices. Range: at least 10m. A balanced tone is sought.

Thank you.

I'd look at something like a Sennheiser RS160 or RS120. They work over radio frequency. Still has some latency, but lower than Bluetooth. You can use up to 4 different channels per set.

If you want an almost latency free system, you'd need 3 RX/TX combo's like EW IEM G4 (times 2, because they're mono) + wired headphones - all together a much higher price point, but available for rent.

I already have a RS160. But I don't see how to set the transmission channel. The explanation in the user guide seems to explain the pairing is a pretty automatic process so I don't see how to set four different channels on four different pairs. Any idea? I have also sent a message to Sennheiser to ask them.

Individual headphones come pre-paired. When re-pairing, just leave it on single user mode (with the switch on the base station). Don't use multi, that mode is for multiple receiving headphones using one transmitter.
