I bought the wireless Sennheiser RS180 headphones to watch TV with (Panasonic VT50). To plug the headphones into the TV I need a digital to analog converter.

I don't know which converters are good as I am only going by customer reviews. I want the best converter that does not reduce sound quality or distorts. So far I am leaning towards this: http://www.amazon.com/Orei-DA21-Optical-Converter-Headphone/dp/B008EPW7TA/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

Does anyone here know which is the best digital to analog converter out right now? Price is no issue.
 
In your application the quality of the DAC is not going to be a critical factor. When you say price is no issue you don't realize that a DAC can cost upwards of $10k (but for music not video). What is a factor is whether your TV will output PCM audio (check the audio setup menu of the TV). If it will the one you link to will be fine. If not you would need one that supports 5.1 channel output such as this
