Sennheiser RS 160 Wireless Headphones

Simple but very good-sounding wireless headphones, the Sennheiser RS 160 Wireless Headphones system uses KLEER wireless transmission for quality noise-free wireless audio with long-range transmission ability. The job is only half-done with a great wireless link and Sennheiser delivers excellent sound quality with these full-size headphones. The RS160 headphones are a 'sealed-back' around-the-ear design offering mild isolation from environmental noise which also helps prevent the person next to you from hearing headphone 'leakage' -- important for not disturbing the spouse or cubicle mate!

What We Think:
Don't let the simplicity of use and attractive price of this upscale wireless system fool you: it sounds pretty GREAT! Sennheiser has long made very good-sounding headphones at all prices, and we've been quite pleased with their line of wireless headphones using KLEER signal transmission. The RS160 is the least expensive Sennheiser model offering KLEER technology delivering an unfettered 60ft+ walkabout range and very good, smooth sound quality. In the recent past, wireless headphones have been plagued with noisy transmission that interfere with quality listening and speech or dialogue intelligibility. KLEER is a cutting-edge third-party provider of CD-equivalent (16-bit/44.1kHz) digital audio wireless transmission technology. Sennheiser employs the proprietary KLEER microchips in the RS160 system to deliver true high-definition, no-wires audio quality with very low power consumption demands while allowing for multiple wireless headphones to be used simultaneously from one single base. KLEER technology will also automatically and instantly tune the transmitter & receiver to the clearest available wireless transmission channel it can find, thereby eschewing localized RF interference sources that may be present in your local vicinity. Extremely good price-to-performance and highly recommended in the wireless category under $200.

The RS160 has a simple round base station included that will take your TV audio signal input via a 1/8' [3.5mm] mini-plug cable (provided), and will run either on two AA batteries for portable operation, OR can be powered by the included multi-country AC wall adapter. The RS 160 base station includes an input sensitivity control to prevent clipping from an overly loud or high-level external source, and the headphones provide a volume control and mute switch mounted on one earcup for listening convenience. The Sennheiser HDR-160 headphones included are a 'sealed-back' earcup construction so they will provide some isolation from outside noises as you enjoy your TV, movies, or music in peace; the seal also prevents sound leakage from the headphones so that the person next to you on the sofa or in bed won't have to endure your audio. Each earpiece accepts one [1] rechargeable AAA battery (included) and the 'phones will run for about 24 hours. Recharge time is 16 hours from completely empty to full. They will transmit up to 60ft+ on 2.4-2.8gHz as the system 'auto-selects' the clearest possible wireless channel. Run-time is about 24 hours per full charge.
