The RS 160 wireless headphones from Sennheiser allow you to enjoy full uncompressed CD-quality audio without the hassles of wires. The system includes a pair of around-ear headphones and a compact transmitter that lets you enjoy your audio. The transmitter connects to your CD player, computer, home theater, or other audio devices. It uses KLEER wireless technology to send uncompressed digital audio up to 60' to the headphones. KLEER technology provides automatic, interference-free pairing between the transmitter and the headphones, so there's no need for tuning. The transmitter can operate on batteries or AC power for terrific versatility.

The included headphones are designed to provide top-quality audio and long-lasting comfort. The transducers use neodymium magnets to provide clear, detailed audio with a wide frequency response. The adjustable headband and around-ear leatherette cushions provide a secure and comfortable fit. The cushions, along with the closed-back design, help to block out unwanted ambient noise so you can focus on your music. The headphones also have a digital volume control with a mute function for convenient control.

    The headphones are good. The sound is clear, bass is enhanced by the headphones (compared to Senn HD 545).I like the fact that they are highly portable. Its sound is not perfect, but the best wireless I had tested. The disadvantage are: 1) you can't use them while they are charging; 2) the range is not that far when there are walls in between (1 wall+1 fridge enough to stop the signal); 3) they hurt my ears after listening to them for more than 1 or 2 hrs.Would I buy them again? I think I would go for the 170. They use the same technology, which I think is great. I also think the base is worth it as makes it easy to plug for recharging, and, as far as I know, the earpads are bigger.The main reason to buy these headphones are two:1) Less expensive; 2) very portable.

    I have used those headset a few days but, unfortunately, I'm returning them. They're well built and the sound quality is good but the tip of my, apparently large, ears seem to slightly touch the grill inside the cups and it starts hurting after a couple of hours. Also, I was slightly disappointed to realize that for the added bulk, the sound wasn't all that much better than my older entry-level Bose headphones.

        I am up several hours before the rest of my family and use these headphones to avoid disturbing them with the TV. These are the best wireless headphones I have used and I have used several brands over the last 15 years. They are my first Bluetooth version. The sound quality is excellent. The batteries last over 10 hours of continuous use and can be easily replaced with AAA for even longer use. Very good range from the base even through walls. I highly recommend these. I have had them for about three weeks and use them every day.

        Perfect for my needs, watching TV

        By Kazcekim

        from Illinois

        Comments about Sennheiser RS 160 Digital Wireless Headphones with Transmitter:

        I wear hearing aids and have a very hard time understanding the dialog when watching TV or a movie on the blue ray. I purchased a sound bar with sub woofer hoping that would help. The sound bar is better than the TV,s speakers but I still could not get all of the dialog. A friend told me about the Sennheiser RS 160 he purchased and he loves them. I ordered the Sennheiser RS160 from B&H and got them in a few days. I am not going to complain about the packaging, it has been written about enough. The Sennheiser RS 160 was easy to install on both of my TV's. Now for the best part, I can't beleive the sound quality of these headphones. I can clearly understand all of the dialog on whatever show I am watching. In the past, I could not watch a show like The Big Bang Theory or some cable news programs where a few people would talk at the same time, I just would not get enought of the dialog to make it worth my time. But now, I can easily understand what each person is saying. I don't know enough about highs and lows and tweeters other qualities that would be useful to someone looking for headphones to use mainly for listing to music so I can't help with that. But if you are like me and need help hearing the dialog on TV, give these a try. Please note that this is the first product that I have ever commented on and I am very happy with this purchase.

              I bought this to replace another Sennheiser headphone which would have white noise present if it didn't receive a signal in a certain amount of time which was annoying. This one remains clear and has good sound quality. I like how the transmitter can be battery-powered as well.

                  Comments about Sennheiser RS 160 Digital Wireless Headphones with Transmitter:

                  We've had these for a few weeks now and love them. The sound quality is amazing, so much better than our TV's speakers. Normally I use them after my wife goes to bed so I don't disturb her with the TV in the living room. But now she grabs them whenever we watch a movie because the sound is so clear. (we'll probably buy another set so we can both use them)
                  They are light, comfortable, and pretty easy to use. I wish the charger cord was a bit longer but maybe I can get an extension for it, or change the placement of the transmitter which now sits next to the TV base. Battery life hasn't been a problem even though we don't always keep them plugged in.

                    The Sennheiser RS 160 wireless headphones have proved to be a boon to someone whose hearing is declining & whose TV listening habits had begun to seriously bother others in the house. The unit is easy to set up, operates flawlessly, is comfortable to wear, and allows for a full range of volume control. As with most headsets, the TV audio is enhanced when using this set. As always, dealings with B&H was exquisite!

                      Comments about Sennheiser RS 160 Digital Wireless Headphones with Transmitter:

                      I purchased this wireless headphone based on very positive reviews here and elsewhere, and on the good service I've gotten for several years from an older Sennheiser model 65. I use the new RS 160 for TV, stereo, and for portable music (iPod).The sound from the headphones is excellent. The reception is interference- and static-free, with none of the hissing nor crackling often associated with wireless phones. The sound at all frequencies, bass, mid, and treble, seems clear and well defined. I'd rank the sound on a par with good mid-priced wired phones.The transmitter is small and unobtrusive, about the size and shape of a hockey puck. Because it runs on batteries (two AA) as well as AC, it is very portable.The only negatives, all very minor ... The range is good, but not great; two or three walls or floors will block the signal. [The RS 170 and 180 are advertised as having much more range.] The headphones are very comfortable, but get less so after a couple of hours. The volume/mute buttons on the headphones are a little too close together and hard to distinguish by touch. The package includes AAA rechargeable batteries for the headphones, but not AAs for the transmitter.These comments are based on a few weeks of use, so I can't comment on durability. They seem sturdy and well-made.

                            Great range of sound with no hissing or crackling.
                            The only suggestion I have for seinheiser is that it would be great if the transmitter were wireless to pair with Apple gear.

                                I was using my HD 280s, but the wire was starting to get in the way, plus my workstation is spaced out. So that was my reasoning for buying the RS 160. Sound quality wise, the HD's seem better to me, but I think it's mainly because there is no reciever to go through. So the RS 160's are not as "hot" in that regard. However, being an editor who wears headphones for 5+ hours at a time, these are great. More comfortable than my HD's (noticed that the second I put them on) and more lightweight. The head band part is kind of flimsy, but I'm sure it will hold up just fine. They are NOT tight by any means,

                                  Have not used headphones yet: audio receiver stopped working, and TV has not audio out jacks.

                                    I am happy with this headphones and I recently purchase a second pair (only headphones) to use with the same receiver for watching movies with my wife without disturbing the baby.Sound quality is good, clear and crisp, but I am not an audio expert, I guess an average "listener" will be happy with them.Headphones are very light, cushion is very soft and even tough I wear glasses I don't have big problems despite these being all around the hear heaphones.They works with 2AAA batteries, so, if they run out of battery you could just replace with two rechargeable AAA batteries (or alkaline). I never did it, as I normally charge them with their charger and the batteries provided last for many hours of use.I saw some concerns of some users regarding the volume buttons as they are all very close to each other and to the power button. Honestly I don't think it is a big deal, just have to get used to it.The base is very small and can be placed almost everywhere. Also the base can work with batteries (I still have to figure out what could be the use of this).I didn't check the range as I have a small house, but the good thing is that I didn't have any interference from other wireless devices (I have plenty of wireless networks close by).When I bought them last october they were $.

                                        Bought to use with two headphones at the same time, wirelessly. Works perfectly, excellent audio quality and volume.

                                        Just set up the wireless headphones, and the early reviews are very positive, in so far as how it works. It was easy to set up, the link connects quickly, I seem to have great range (can walk throughout the house with minimal interference, etc. The only slight negatives: 1) the earphones are not very comfortable. Specifically, they are too tight. After a half-an-hour, they definitely start to irritate my ear. Maybe with time they will loosen up. 2) Sometimes I got a slight echo effect, but it was only on one show, so it could have been the broadcast itself. These are just early reviews. I haven't used them enough to really say. But if not for the ear discomfort, these would be 5 star, in my book.

                                        Comments about Sennheiser RS 160 Digital Wireless Headphones with Transmitter:

                                        I use the headphones for late night TV watching so it doesn't bother my wife sleeping. I had an old pair of Sony TMR-RF970A that had an internal battery which no longer stays charged. The RS160 is significantly better, true sound, no interference, and the headset fits my head perfectly. I find the headset to be very comfortable. My wife also used them and commented on how well they worked and how comfortable they were. This is a great product for the price. I would have given it 5 starts, but I could not attest to the battery life. I have had them for a couple of weeks and worked my way through season 2 of Breaking Bad on DVD's with no problems.
