Product Details

Sennheiser Home Entertainment Wireless Headphones - RS160

The RS 160 combines the best wireless audio quality with a truly versatile compact transmitter for listening at home, on-the-go or at the office.

This wireless headphone system consists of a pair of wireless headphones (HDR 160) and a compact transmitter (TX 160) which runs on AC or battery power to best accommodate your application. The transmitter's compact size makes it a natural selection for automotive installs or in dentist/doctor's offices. The RS 160 utilizes KLEER's uncompressed digital wireless audio transmission (it sounds wired!), offering a range of up to 60 feet, audiophile-grade sound and reception to four optional pairs of Sennheiser KLEER headphones. Never fuss with tuning again thanks to automatic, interference-free pairing between the headphone and transmitter.

The headphones' leatherette earpads and headband cushions provide outstanding comfort while their closed, around-the-ear design prevents sound leakage.

This headphone has it all.

        Comments about Sennheiser Home Entertainment Headphones:

        The first pair quit after 2 days. Second pair is working fine. The controls are kind of funky and awkward to reach.
        I use them so I don't have to turn he TV way up, and bother others.
        They are quite heavy and only fairly comfortable, you can't use them if your head is resting against a cushion unless you keep your head straight, the large cups push against one's head. Sound is good, for both music and voice. Wireless feature is their big selling point.

              I have hearing loss and hate wearing hearing aids at TV time as they make everything louder. I used to use captions but that took my attention away from the picture. This is the third set of wireless headphone I have purchased and by far the best. I highly recommend

                      We got these wireless headphone so my husband can watch tv without disturbing me while I read or sleep. They fit our needs. The initial install was confusing with the very brief instructions provided.

                      Comments about Sennheiser Home Entertainment Headphones:

                      This is a very common problem: the 1/8" phone jack into the sender unit didn't hold a solid electrical contact. This gave a dull buzz and loss of fidelity at the headphones because the feed signal was compromised. Abt immediately sent a whole nother set without any hassle. As I expected, it had the same problem. All of my headphones over the years have had the same problem. We need a better industry standard for plugs and sockets. I have to wiggle the connector once in a while but I absolutely LOVE the headphones. They fade in and out rather than go dead and roar back when the RF signal is compromised by my metal HVAC system. Good range around all parts of the house, other than that.

                          I had a previous pair of Sennheiser wireless headphones that I primarily use so that I don't disturb my roomates. When I read and researched the newer RS 160, I just had to upgrade and I'm glad I did. The quality is better, the range is better and the best part about the RS160 is that I don't have to tune it. It does the work for you.[...]
