    I use the RS-120 in my one level ranch style house when watching TV and these headphones pick up the audio flawlessly, no matter which room I am in.

    The padded ear cushions are flat and larger in diameter that one's ears, so if you do bend over, the headphones will tend to slide off your head. Wearing a baseball style cap helps to keep them in position, if need be.

    This is the style of ear cushion I wanted. I have no problem with the headphones sliding off when sitting and watching TV, or just walking from room to room.

    The adjustment buttons on the back of the headset are easy to work and once you get used to their locations, do not interfere with each other.

    The headphones are large in diameter and I knew that going in. These ARE just what I wanted!

    Above are some complaints I see often on the internet, but these headphones are great for my intended purpose. I highly recommend the RS-120. Great features and sound quality for the price.

    I watched a movie and they sounded great. They had no static and were better sounding than a nice wired pair that I have, however the fit is terrible. They fit on your ears not around them so they will fall off very easily. I would not suggest these for working out or anything to active.

        Comments about Sennheiser RS 120 - Wireless Headphone System:

        I bought these to use at work with my XM radio. I work on a loading dock driving a forklift. I have dropped them countless times on the floor and have even had them fall off the dock 4 foot to the ground + my height of 6 ft. My only real complaint is the fall off my head while bending over . The range is excellent I even bought a second pair for using around the house. In fact of all of the abuse they have been through the only problem I have had was the power cord quit working, easily replaced by calling Sennheiser directly (great cust service too) audio quality is pretty good for the price.

          I got this pair to replace an old pair of Sony brand. The Sony required me to be in the room, so these are great cause I can go make popcorn in the kitchen and still hear the TV.

          The recharger connections are cleverly mounted on the headphone crosspiece---so when you put them on the stand, charging starts.

          Also, the unit uses AAA batteries, so any NiMH rechargeable battery will work.

          I have attempted to use this product with a Samsung flat screen TV. The idea was to isolate outside noise and improve the sound quality heard. Although it is comfortable, the tuning function is difficult to get right. During the process there is a lot of annoying squeaking and quite frankly I could not achieve a satisfactory link that was consistent.

                The recharging station is awesome. My last pair of Sennheiser wireless headphones lasted 5 years, that's a lot of disposable batteries! Great fit and great sound quality connected to the TV.

                A little heavier than my old model but still very comfortable. Definitely recommend this item.

                    My hearing is not 100%, so I often have a hard time understanding everything said on TV. Had to turn volume way up. Tried moderately-priced speakers - better, but not great.

                    I chose the Sennheiser mainly because of the recharging stand. No messing with replacing batteries. Works great. I can hear almost every word said on TV, and don't have to turn the volume up.

                    I have been using this system about a year for private TV viewing. I am well pleased with the sound quality and simplicity of operation. However, the battery charging system is very frustrating. It is sometimes nearly impossible to get the phones properly positioned on the charging cradle so that the charging light comes on and stays on. The charging connection needs to be more positive and firm. Even a wire hook-up from the charging unit to the phones would be preferable. Other than that it's a good product at a good price.Ron Pool

                    Comments about Sennheiser RS 120 - Wireless Headphone System:

                    I own this, as well an earlier version, and two later, higher priced models. I love being able to hear my TV, radio, or recorded music even if I move from room to room, and at whatever volume I like, without worrying about disturbing others.
                    They work well, I like the sound, but it's other factors that have caused me great grief, and limited my ability to enjoy these headphones.

                    One, is that by having the controls on the back side of the earpiece, it makes it very difficult to lie down and listen to them, for any movement causes the volume to jump up or down, as it moves the dial.... not a good design.

                    There is also a major design flaw in the cheap piece of plastic that allows the earpieces to swivel, and it breaks, and has broken on all four units I've owned. If it occurs while still under warranty, they'll repair it, but once that time is past, you're out of luck. Duct tape will hold it on, but not secure enough to turn your head, lean over, walk around, much less work-out. It's greatly frustrating and aggravating, as Sennheiser's quality control is usually far better than this, and that they have known of this flaw for many years, and not fixed it, is puzzling and maddening...

                    Also, once this occurs, it's also much more difficult to get it to sit properly on the charger, another frustrating factor.

                        I found the Senheiser Wireless Headphone of good quality , easy to set up with a good cradle for recharging the batteries. It's light weight and comfortable .
                        The only negative I can detect is the volume control and tuning control are close together on the right earphone and can be easily confused .

                            Use it to watch tv, it is comfortable and practical. great reception and clarity. Would have prefer to have full ear coverage instead of over the ear coverage but it serves its purpose, that is, to allow me to listen to my TV without disturbing others. And its price cannot be beaten!!!

                            I wear hearing aids however, they don't filter out the background TV noise. I use this product without the hearing aids and the sound comes through much clearer.
