    Well, that's good then!
    Sure it is good, it works now ?
    I am hoping so! It's been nearly a day and it's working very well.

    Thanks a lot for help here!

    Are those earphones BT ? Even BT works on 2.4 GHz so when in close proximity interference can wreck havoc. It may help to use an extension cable to move WiFi receiver further away.

    Nope, no BT, also they are headphones. I am surprised by the interference. I have used countless wireless headsets before and never had an issue. Thankfully, these Sennheisers are temporary. Back to my trust HD598s!
