    anyone ever use wireless headphone to be played with Wii U?

    I don't like being distracted by sound while playing, so most times I will be using headphones whenever I play on PC or PS3. and I usually opted to use wireless headphone so I won't be dealing with tangled cable, but I can't seem to find one to be used with Wii U

    I found one which is PDP Afterglow Universal Wireless Headset (http://www.amazon.com/Afterglow-Uni...60-6304300630490063060006306200/dp/B009CL6LA6) which works wireless on Wii U by connecting to the USB port, but I don't like that LED look

    yes I know I can just plug my wired headphone to Wii U gamepad but I'd prefer the other options if possible (and I've read somewhere the downside of using wired headphone to Wii U gamepad includes low volume, not compatible with some games, e.g. Wind Waker, etc)
    however I would consider if somebody can give me solution like a wireless headphone adapter where I can plug my wired headphone to that adapter on one side and the other directly to the Wii U audio output or something like that (you can say it's just like the gamepad, but without all the downsides that I mentioned above)

    please share your experience if you have tried any wireless headphone for Wii U
    thanks

    Somewhere.
    AfterGlow is the best and the glow is only on the ears. However, they do NOT provide instructions on how to set it up for the Wii U. And on top of that, the USB is basically an interceptor for the Red and White audio cables (you plug the red and white wires from the Wii U into the back of the USB's red / white cables and then plug them all into the TV. Then you enable "audio multi-out" or something in the Wii U settings.) It sounds complicated but it's actually fairly easy to set up. Plus, you can change the color of the glow. But obviously you first need the AV Cables which aren't included with the Wii U, but you can reuse the Wii's if you had/have one.



    And you can also use the gray cable to plug the headset into pretty much any audio port, such as the Wii U Gamepad but isn't necessary.

    I hope you understand all that up there.

    I believe I understand how it works, but I just don't like the design of that headset :P

    but I just found out that apparently Sony Pulse Elite Wireless Headset allows you to connect a 3.5 mm headphone jack to its USB Dongle and it relays anything that connected to the other end of 3.5 mm headphone cable to the wireless headset itself, basically similar with Afterglow but it's using a 3.5 mm headphone cable instead of red/white RCA cable
    haven't got the time to test it yet, but if it works, I'll report back here

    and thanks a lot for your reply

    Afterglow uses 3.5 mm as well.
