    Hi
    Don't use bluetooth but use wireless and they work very well.

    I deal with a in ear system wich is at the moment not available a
    Sony WF-1000XM3 True Wireless Noise Cancelling wich i think is comfortable,all i need is a Bluetooth 5.0 Dongle for PC.
    What is wireless?I only know Bluetooth so far.

    Using the Steelseries Arctis 7 here (sadly they don't fit over the oculus rift s) but great headset. :)

    I'd be concerned about latency with Bluetooth. Doesn't mean it's not an option, but I'd say research first to find out what it's like and whether it'll be ok. It basically has no effect on communication, and when watching video you can adjust the audio sync to suit, but a live source like a game has no options and in this case audio cues do matter - a delay hearing tyre noise will have an effect on your driving.

    Wireless headsets ,transmit audio signals either through infrared or radio frequency waves.

    Steelseries Arctis 7 user, no complaints and comfortable.

    Thanks for the heads up about not fitting over the Rift S Paulus_NL I use the Rift CV1 and would have gone S if my CV1 ever broke.

    I have a rift s and think the graphics really good still trying to work a headset that is comfortable I have found some 3d printed mounts which I might give a try.
