    I wouldnít use any type of headphones with active noise cancellation(that canít be turned off, at least) for monitoring audio. Thatís just a bad idea...

    Plus youíre throwing another point of failure in the monitoring chain and something else to possibly be trouble-shot if you run into issue. If you are solely responsible for audio, I recommend hard wired headphones/IEM, with no extraneous processing between the signal and your ears.

    Bluetooth inherently has latency, some Tx and Rx are a little better than others but it it still going to be an annoying delay if there is acoustic bleed. for the live soured, I tried this as an IFB alternative once, big mistake, complaints were overwhelming from the non-technical listeners

    If you're the HoD for Sound then your headphones must be hardwired, and no active noise cancellation.

    For anybody else in the crew then use the usual comtek/IFB/IEMs, of which a massive range of options exist from the likes of Zaxcom URX100 / Lectrosonics IFBR1B all the way down to cheap Chinese wireless.

    I'm not sure about using Bluetooth for this type of thing.

    I heard about a guy who rented out a bunch of those cheap Ali Express IEM and transmitters that look like sennheiser G3's. Half of them broke on the first day so he charged production for brand new replacement sennheiser G3's lol.

    One thing's for certain - based on the review comments, these things have a terrible design, audio quality and features. In other words a pile of poo!
