Knowing how poorly most TV wireless headphone systems have sounded in the past, we were perhaps a bit apprehensive when Sennheiser came out with their 'affordable' RS 135 wireless system. Would they be able to maintain the same success as with their upscale wireless headphone products at this affordable 'entry-level' price point? Our conclusion: Yep!
The Sennheiser RS 135 RF headphone system sounds quite good for such an inexpensive wireless design with a very solid transmission range of 300ft. It also includes a cool base station transmitter that automatically charges the headphone when placed on the stand.
The only potential drawback with these wireless headphones is they're an open-earcup design, so you will probably be able to hear the spouse vacuuming or that noisy street traffic right outside your window. Other than that, the Sennheiser RS135 Wireless Headphones gets our hearty wireless TV headphone recommendation at a nice price.
The RS 135 is a well-constructed pair of 'supra-aural' over-the-ear headphones meaning the earcups rest gently 'on the ears'. The earpads are made of a soft and fairly comfortable velour-like material; the headband pads are nicely positioned to prevent “hot spots” on top of your head during long listening sessions. The headband contains two tiny metal plates between the headband pads that contact the base station’s headphone hanger and provide the electrical connections needed to auto-charge the unit. In other words: simply hang the cans on the base station and, voila', they instantly start charging...nifty!
The headband controls are simple and include volume, transmission tuning, and an on/off switch. The base station has no controls; Place the headphone on the hanger, they auto-charge and a LED light appears to indicate charging status; connect the base to any RCA-plug audio line-out source and it immediately activates the base transmitter when it self-detects the presence of any signal. With a range of over 300 ft., you can use this nearly anywhere in the house.
