Default Using wireless headphones with Stiletto - YES!

I have a wireless headphone attached to my PC. I often have a RealPlayer playlist going and simply put on my wireless headphones and work around the house, garage and sometimes even in the yard. I get pretty good reception too, up to a couple hundred feet of the transmitter with only the occasional drop out.

I was wondering if there was a way to do this with the Stiletto and sure enough it works and sounds great! Some wireless headphones are not very efficient but the Stiletto has enough power to run the headphones with loudness to spare. What the use of wireless headphones does is allow me to move freely around without needing to find a way to hook the unit to my belt or keep it in my pocket where it could get damaged or fall out. It avoids any earplug wires getting caught on something and getting yanked out, especially when working in the yard. This should also save the battery since (I think) I can run the Stiletto off the AC charger. I say "think" because I have not yet tried to remove the battery and run it on AC.

I have used wireless headphones only with Library because the antenna requirement for live reception would force me to take the unit outside anyway and would be too restrictive. However, when I get the home dock, this should also allow me to listen to live broadcasts anywhere in my house and property with the wireless earphones but I'll have to see how the docking station is configured to be sure I can do it. From what I understand, there will be RCA plugs included that can be hooked into an amp and listened to over your home theater speakers. Therefore, I should be able to insert these plugs into the wireless transmitter just as I am doing now using a Y pigtail. I have a Y with the headphone plug connected to the Stiletto headphone jack. The ends of the Y consist of two female RCA type leads. I did not have a Y with male L/R connectors or I would have inserted that Y directly from the Stiletto to my wireless transmitter. What I had to do was take another set of L/R wires with both ends being male and connect one end to the pigtail and plug the other end in the wireless transmitter's L/R audio in. This is exactly the same configuration I plan on using when I hook the Stiletto to my Mini-disk recorder where I hope to transfer the complete operas I record and edit them to highlights and selections on the Mini-disk.

I'm sure many of you have used wireless headphone configurations with other docking stations and radios/receivers. How has it worked for you?
