Sennheiser RS 160 wireless headphones

 

Superb quality over wireless as never experienced before.

Great quality when compared to other wireless headphone brands. Extremely comfortable fit for almost everyone

A little low on the bass thump. The volume controls can be a little hard to use

If you used to hate wireless headphones because they could never offer the quality of a wired headset, the Sennheiser RS 160 has been built for you. Within a range of 20m, this headphone will give superb audio quality to rival the best corded...

Best wireless headphones for home theater

 

Reviewers say that the new Sennheiser RS 160 headphones are the best home-theater wireless model for the price. They use new Kleer wireless technology to stream lossless, CD-quality audio without interference. Their on-the-ear design features thick...

Very good sound quality, comfortable for extended use, excellent reception, good range

Hard-to-reach controls, uneven bass performance, expensive

Sennheiser RS 160 wireless headphones

 

A bit pricey, but these wireless headphones are genuinely good enough to replace a conventional set of wired headphones.

Pairing the headphones to the transmitter was very easy – they both automatically go into ‘enrolment’ mode when they're turned on and we were listening to our music within seconds of inserting the batteries

Sennheiser RS160

 

The clever chaps at Sennheiser have been at it again, this time coming up with a pair of chunky cans that ditch the cables and enclose your lugholes in glorious noise-cancelling sonic luxury. And with the price tag of £130 sounding pretty good to our...

Another winner from audio over-achiever Sennheiser. They're not quite sonically perfect but for how well the idea has been executed this pair of wireless wonders gets our stamp of approval. Sennheiser RS160 is tagged with Sennheiser, RS160 and...

A cracking pair of cans, ideal for using at home: the wireless tech works wonders

RS 160 - Comfy new Wireless Headphones from Sennheiser : Shiny Shiny

 

Anyway, what we're saying is: if you think you want wireless headphones in your life, consider the digital RS 160s. Sennheiser's new wireless headphones are digital - an update on its analogue predecessors. The RS 160 has a tiny transmitter that can...

Love the sound, but some things left desired

 

Sennheiser has great sounding tech, and if I was rating just on sound these would 5+ eggs. This set deserves better ear cups and cushion than the kind you'd find on the cheapest no-name kit. Please bring back real switches and rotary pots and spare us...

No hiss, no static, no tuning needed. Range for me is decent with line of sight in an area that is RF congested ; The bass seems tight and balanced, with very clear mids and detailed highs. There is nothing 'tinny' about this set, and listening to it...

My biggest gripe is the controls and indicators for the set ; Lack of an actual 'off' switch: In order to power off/on, you have to hold the button for about two seconds. Not holding the button can result in merely muting the headset. I'm one of those...
