Most people i know only use wireless headsets and headphones while away from their homes and offices since obviously that does give them a higher degree of freedom compared to wired models (the lack of cables also does look better right?). Personally i use wireless headsets and headphones all the time whether I’m away or at home or the office although i do admit i prefer wired connectivity when I’m playing games, watching movies or listening to music while in bed. While on the road however it's not like one has much of a choice since cables do tend to be annoying so using wireless headsets has become a way of life for me many years now. Today we'll be taking a thorough look at one of the latest Bluetooth wireless headphones to hit the market the WR780 by TDK.

Size-wise the WR780 is not your average everyday wireless headset since TDK gave it large earcups with large and very comfortable earcups. Now normally I’d say that they didn't have to follow that path since the two 40mm dynamic drivers don't require space (nor do the Bluetooth and NFC features) but comfort is not something to be taken lightly and unfortunately many manufacturers out there do. Digging deeper into the specifications of the WR780 we see that the 40mm dynamic drivers have a total power output of 10W (5W each) with a frequency response of 20Hz-20KHz, 102dB (±3dB) sensitivity (the manual states 102dB while online TDK states 96dB so we will have to verify which is which) and 32Ohm impedance. The WR780 is compatible with Bluetooth v2.1 (EDR/A2DP/AVRCP/HSP/HFP) and wears a NiMh (Nickel–metal hydride) 3.6v 300mAh rechargeable battery pack which gives it up to 8 hours of use. So is the WR780 just as good as the many wireless speakers we've tested by TDK? Let's find out.
