      Comments about Sennheiser RS 140 RF Wireless Headphone System:

      I have 2 of these. I purchased both as complete kits with base and headphones. You can select different channels on each base. I listen to music on one set while my wife listens to the TV on hers. When we watch something together I simply change the channel on my headphones to match hers and we can both listen to a movie. That is really where these shine. I am completely deaf on one side and I have great difficulty picking dialog out of movies. My wife has a similar complaint although she has normal hearing, at least for her age. We are able to enjoy movies and television now and understand the dialog while still hearing the music. I cannot speak to the quality of the sound regarding listening to high end stereo systems because that is meaningless to me with only one functioning ear.
      I am able to walk throughout the house with no interruption of sound although it can get a little airy if I am upstairs or have a couple of walls between the headphones and base.

      Comfortable and nice sound quality

      • Power supply

      • With My Computer

      Comments about Sennheiser RS 140 RF Wireless Headphone System:

      The phones are nice and comfortable and the sound quality is good. Not as nice as I expected but not too disappointing. They are attractive, seem well made, and have pretty good range.

      The biggest downer for me was that the power supply is 110V 60Hz only so I had to buy another one that would work overseas. This would not be a problem for anyone living in the US and not planning on taking it out of the country, but for the price, it should have included a switching power supply.

        This is a very high quality walk around set of earphones for anyone who has hearing loss or merely wants to listen alone without disturbing others.

        Read the brief instruction manual.

          Comments about Sennheiser RS 140 RF Wireless Headphone System:

          I bought this product because my wife complains that I play the TV too loud. Now I don't have to worry about annoying someone in a neighboring apartment. I can even hear everything that is said, even when I walk into another room for a few minutes. This product is wonderful and does everything that was promised. I definitely recommend it.

          Comments about Sennheiser RS 140 RF Wireless Headphone System:

          I'm so pleased I got these -- the sound quality is excellent. Some static/hissing if I move around a lot, if I get a couple of walls between me and the transmitter the sound quality drops. But for most uses they're great, much better than the name brand POC I got at the big box store, well worth the cost. My bottom line is that the sound is as clear as a corded set 97% of the time -- wanted to rate them a 4.5.

          Quality product

          By Jerry A.

          from Colorado

          Comments about Sennheiser RS 140 RF Wireless Headphone System:

          I'm really enjoying these headphones. I'd read other folksconcerns about sound quality and losing signal, and it seemsthat losing signal is probably unavoidable under somecircumstances, and they do drop out now and again as Iwander about the house, but it's only for a half-second at atime and when there's a metal obstruction between thetransmitter and receiver, or next to computer equipment. Youalso have a choice of transmit frequency to help addressthis. I've found the sound quality and range to beexceptional, and I applaud Sennheiser for addressing theissue of getting the input signal level correct - A commonproblem with wireless headphones. To get the best soundquality, you want to have a strong signal to the transmitterand then adjust volume at the headphone. These headphoneshave a couple of feature that make this easy to do. They arecomfortable, and the easily replaceable batteries areanother plus. Also, the B&H price was unbeatable.
