    And another battery to keep track of.

    Personally, I wouldn't rely on bluetooth headphones in a production environment. But I agree that headphone cables can be a PITA. I use Sony 7506 cans, and just suck up the cable.

    But some people I know remove the stock curly cable and solder in a straight cable of their preferred length. If you know your way around a soldering iron, it's an easy job. Or since you're in NYC, I bet you could swing by Gotham Sound or somewhere and they'd modify your headphones or some stock models for you.

    Or you could check out Audio-Technica headphones. I'm not really familiar with their line, but I hear they're pretty good. And at least a couple of their professional models have removable cables, and come with a straight and a curly cable. The straight cable is 3 meters, but maybe they sell a shorter accessory cable, or maybe you could chop that down to length and put the connector where you want; that should be very simple.

    Or maybe look at some sort IEM/over-ear bud that comes with a shorter cable... Like ENG style: TV News cam people monitor with just one small bud; it works well enough for them (and yes, I've chatted with some about it).

    I've got the Sony headphones, but now I'm using $15 Monoprice headphones that have a 3.5mm jack in them. You can plug whatever cable type/length you need. So I use a short cable and plug it into the G3. What's nice about the removable cable is that if it gets snagged, it just pops out.

    Great test. Just need a way to delay video monitoring 137ms and you've got perfect sync! ;)

    This test shows AptX low latency working around 40ms:


    Thus if you can find a matching AptX LL transmitter + headphones, should be possible to get ~40ms latency which is less than one video frame at 24fps or 42ms.

    Wired: the AT-M40x are good headphones for the money (have a pair of ATH-M50's). For about $30 more, the Focal Listen's are significantly better than anything from AT or Sony near the $130 price point (I do like the 7506 for comfort and somewhat disposable price of $80): https://www.amazon.com/Focal-Listen-...dp/B01H2NDPZY/ . I paid $249 for the Focal's after demoing them at CanJam. They are a steal at $129!
    The wireless Sennhesier Momentum 2.0 are also excellent in both comfort and sound, however from the video test and reading the specs (BT 4.0), don't appear to support low latency.

    Lots of AptX low latency headphones, some decent looking/specs starting around $36: https://www.amazon.com/s?k=aptx+low+...&i=electronics

    Donít underestimate how annoying it is Having audio and video out of sync! At least Iím finding it so annoying I can hardly do it.

Is there some kind of wireless solution? Something that connects straight to camera's aux jack and feeds wireless headphones?
    I have a wireless setup for monitoring because I one-man band everything. Also for gimbal shooting it's critical. And often I shoot two cameras. One lock down, one moving. With a wireless headset I can monitor the main camera. The Bluetooth connection is surprisingly robust. I've been over a hundred feet away and still gotten a solid signal.

    The big issue is...latency. First you MUST get APT-X Low Latency. This is harder than you might imagine. Standard APT-X is a "low latency" protocol, but there is also a special APT-X LL which is even lower. It's not easy to sort out what is or is not APT-X LL from descriptions. Secondly, even though headsets may be APT-X LL there is no guarantee that they will connect with the transmitter as APT-X LL.

    After numerous combinations, this is what I've settled on:
    Taotronics Bluetooth Transmitter - TTBA01 (I also have the TTBA12 but it seems latency is greater)
    Sennheiser CX 6.00 BT Headphones - It's a bit pricey but I've not had reliable low latency with other ones.

    With this combo, you have to turn on the headphones first and then the transmitter.

    With this setup, the latency is okay if you close your ears off to external sounds. Otherwise it can drive you a bit batty. In your situation it's fine. Often I'm conducting interviews and that's where it gets dicey. It is actually hard to talk if you hear yourself back in your ears with a delay. That's what really drives you crazy.

    That is certainly true of regular Bluetooth. But if you can manage to get an apt-X Low Latency transmitter and headphones that work together (not as easy as it should be). It's not too bad. Certainly video/audio sync is not the issue as it's no different than listening to someone speak 20 meters away. The annoying part is hearing both natural sound and sound through the headphones at the same time. That drives you batty.
