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. 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 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.
The Sennheiser RS 165 is a perfect complement to your home entertainment system. This digital wireless headphone system delivers exceptional sound quality and freedom from wires. The ergonomic around ear, closed back design reduces background noise while providing an exceptionally comfortable fit. You’ll be immersed in the sound of your favorite music, TV or movies without disturbing anyone in the room!

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 RS 165 RF Wireless Headphone System
  • I find the comfort to be very good. I think my head is pretty average sized and they fit well.
  • Strong thumping bass, better for your eardrums, since they seal tightly around your ears! Except for the Hot ears, these are fairly comfortable.
  • Adjusting the size up and down did not help. I have a medium-sized head, unremarkable really in size. So I had to take off a star, because comfort is a huge factor in something like this.
  • It's somewhat firm and I can't loosen that by expanding the size.
  • The weight distribution puts a lot of pressure not only on my ears (which I guess is great for isolating sound) but also on the top of my head.

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 RS 165 RF Wireless Headphone System
  • And I love the fact they are wireless. Well worth the money spent.
  • The listening experience satisfies my requirements and I cannot comment on frequency range quality, my ears are not that good.
  • The RF design is trouble proof and the range is excellent.
  • The range goes really far im in a 3000, sq ft home (2 levels) and the unit delivers great clarity throught wntire home.
  • These wireless headphones, Sennheiser RS 165 RF, Totally block out someone trying to talk to you. Totally frustrating my wife!!

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 RS 165 RF Wireless Headphone System
  • Based on my experience with previous wireless headsets I've used, these have much better battery life, and sound great.
  • Uses standard batteries, so its easy and cheap to switch them out once they wear out. Definitely worth the little bit extra I paid for these over some of the other options out there.
  • Like the fact they can use standard alkaline batteries while rechargeable are being charged.
  • The batteries have outlasted my 5 hour marathons.
  • The battery charges so slowly. It takes hours. I'd love if I could charge a second set of batteries in the transmitter while using the headphones.
