About the Product
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.

The RS 160 utilizes KLEER's lossless 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.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Sennheiser RS 160 RF Wireless Headphones
  • They are a small size in the head unit which is good for weight.
  • Very clear sound, lightweight, comfortable, good price.
  • Very comfortable and reaches all over the house.
  • Was looking for something comfortable and that would work with my hearing aids and these did.
  • You can of course adjust the size of them, but I only lengthen them half way at most.
Sennheiser HDR 160 Headphone (Discontinued by Manufacturer)
  • It's the perfect size to fit behind a solid cabinet door so we don't have wires and headphones stands sitting out all the time.
  • I like the fact that the transmitter is small, portable and will travel with less bulk.
  • These were ideal since the compact transmitter could be mounted on the back of the TV.
  • It is all plastic and feels light, but that works for me because I watch movies 2hrs +.
  • Weight makes itself felt because the head begins to hurt after an hour of use.

What customers say about "Features"
Sennheiser RS 160 RF Wireless Headphones
  • Since I live in a house with my parents and grandparents, who both go to bed much earlier than I do, and we have really thin walls, I had been thinking for quite awhile about getting a pair of wireless headphones to use with my TV, so that I wouldn't keep my family awake.
  • The Kleer technology has also eliminated the constant hum and static that tend to be problematic in cheaper wireless headphones.
  • Clear sound, great range of frequencies, good transmitter range, reliable. Even includes high-quality, long-lasting Eneloop batteries. A great value for wireless headphones.
  • The radio link range is pretty decent. Solid sound at 30 feet from the transmitter, and I often (tho not totally consistently) can pick up sound when in many other rooms of my house, including the a floor down from the bedroom transmitter and in the basement.
  • Good volume range, with a mute feature (it mutes if you press the volume down button after getting to the lowest volume setting).
  • The range was not nearly that advertised. In my small 1 bedroom apartment, if I walked into the next room I heard mostly silence rather than music.
Sennheiser HDR 160 Headphone (Discontinued by Manufacturer)
  • Easy to connect multiple headsets and the sound quality is great.
  • When using with laptop get excellent sound out of both ears. Also Range is great.
  • They sound great and have a good range. I am only about 15 feet away so there are no issues with interference at all.
  • Kind of big and bulky. The connection to the audio source was more difficult than I thought.
  • Such a waste of money, headphones won't connect to anything, no cables nothing provided.

What customers say about "Power"
Sennheiser RS 160 RF Wireless Headphones
  • Battery life is really quite good.
  • It would have been nice to have re-chargeable batteries for the transmitter since there is an adapter jack to recharge both the transmitter and headphones at the same time.
  • One of the good things about it is that there is an option for rechargeable batteries for both the transmitter and the headphones.
  • Battery life is really good, I've charged them twice and I've had them for quite a while. They get alot of use.
  • Battery life is very long (as compared to my aging Macally set). I can probably wear these for over 24 hours continuous music listening and they'd still be alive.
Sennheiser HDR 160 Headphone (Discontinued by Manufacturer)
  • The batteries last about 2 weeks if you use them for a couple hours each day.
  • I've used the headphones for about 14 hours now and I read it could last for around 20 so that's a pretty long lasting battery which is great for wireless.
  • It has excellent sound quality. Battery life is really good.
  • Drains batteries pretty fast. You must use alternating rechargeable batteries. It's worth investing in rechargeables.
  • Battery life sucks. Only last about 2-3 hours, and it doesn't give you any indication of the battery life.
