What headphones can connect directly into a optical audio output?

The number of wireless headphones (regardless of manufacturer) that will connect directly to a optical audio output is actually quite limited. The Sennheiser RS 175, RS 185 and RS 195 Wireless Headphones have the ability to connect directly to a digital optical output that is outputting a PCM signal.

The alternate way to connect to a digital output is to use a digital to analog decoder which will take the digital signal and change it into an analog signal. When using a digital to analog decoder any analog headphones have the ability to be connected to a digital output.

NOTE: The Digital to Analog Decoder we recommend is the OREI DA 34 as it is a good quality component that not too expensive but does not compromise the audio quality.
