    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 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.

    Good gadget for hearing impaired folks

    Comments about Sennheiser RS 120 - Wireless Headphone System:

    I use this to watch TV so that it won't affect others' hearing loudness. Set up is easy. Adjust your volume with the headset as well as fine tune the frequency on select channel. If you will be bothered by wearing a headset then considering using a bluetooth wireless spearker. However, the bluetooth will affect others as well.

              There was way too much RF interference. It may have been great years ago before cellphones/bluetooth/wifi were rampant. I do NOT reccommend these for any situation except for emergencies.

                I purchased 2 RS 120 Wireless headsets for my wife's birthday. After a simple setup - all wires and connectors were included, along with rechargable batteries I let the unit charge for 24 hours. The headphone operation is flawless and the sound quality is excellent. The distance from the TV to the headphones is less than 10 feet so distance is not an issue for us. The charger cradle works well and allows the headphones to be ready for use all the time.

                I use these while watching TV so as to not disturb others in the room or late at night for the same reason. They work great for this purpose. Not having to worry about someone tripping over a headphone wire is great. I only wish the transmitter was smaller and that I could charge the headphones in such a way that I could keep everything in a drawer or some other out of the way area.

                Comments about Sennheiser RS 120 - Wireless Headphone System:

                I needed some headphones because my hearing isn't what it once was and I miss words when the sound gets lower in some parts on tv. It's also quite handy when I want to watch the news while getting breakfast and packing lunch in the kitchen without waking my wife upstairs. The sound quality is very good with a nice range from treble to bass; not over- or underpowered on either end. The battery life on my headset is outstanding. I've never kept track of the hours, but I only have to charge it up every couple of weeks or so.The other thing I really like is the distance that this headset will go and stay connected. I can go anywhere in our house (almost 2,000 sq. ft.) and not lose connection or get static. They are quite comfortable for long periods of wear, and if I have anything negative to say, it is that if you tilt your head downward the headset may begin to slide off or fall. I don't know if a strap around the back would be helpful or too much of a hindrance, though. But how often do you tilt your head forward while watching television...unless you nod off.Overall, I'm very pleased with them. So well in fact, that I got a set for my mom for Mother's Day. She just raves about her set.

                  I bought these to listen to the TV. As far as sound goes, they were great up close to the TV, less than 10 feet away. Unfortunately, you could not walk away to another room as the product claims or the static was terrible. Perhaps it is just my house. The real problem for me was the comfort on my head. They just kept slipping off and felt very uncomfortable. Because of the two problems, comfort and sound static at a distance, I returned them and bought a different brand which was comparably priced.

                      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 use the headphones for watching TV.
                        Pros: Reasonable price for build quality. Good range and clear reception when tuned correctly.
                        Cons: Loose fitting, slight background buzz requires constant tuning.

                        I use the headset to watch TV wthout distubing others late at night. It has good range and sound quality. They are not as comfortable as high end headsets in the $400 range ... but great value.

                        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.
