Sennheiser RS130


Wireless headphones with good battery life and great audio quality

The RS130 as an audio product is a study in contradictions. On one hand, it offers excellent audio playback wirelessly, however its wireless nature attracts every stray RF signal that might be bouncing around, be it a mobile looking for a signal or a...

The search for the perfect set of wireless headphones is often one fraught in disappointment and annoyance. First you have to decide between two technologies: Radio Frequency (RF) and Infrared (IR). At the very first step of the decision to go...

Radio Frequency transmission; easy to charge; comfortable; good sound stage

Some interference issues (hard not to get with RF headphones)

The Sennheiser RS-130s are a simple, practical, and truly functional pair of headphones.

Wireless headphones (900MHz frequency); supercomfy earpads; stylish base/stand recharges headphones' batteries; surround processing; built-in volume control.

Noise and hiss sometimes intrude on the sound; volume and tuning controls are set too close together.

The RS130s are Sennheiser's best wireless headphones to date.

"Wonderful Product, with great performance - convenience"


I have 4 sets of headphones and 2 base stations. We use them in multiple rooms and use 2 at a time to watch the same show. 3 of 4 are the RS 130 and the 4th is a RS 140. I love them all and they have been working well for 3-4 years now.

Comfortable. Good Sound. Versatile; I use one base and 2 sets of headphones for my wife and I.

Base station is somewhat large and needs a spot by your stereo or TV

"Good sound. Wireless is soo nice!"


It is important, when connecting these headphones to turn up the output volume on the computer and instead turn down the volume on the headphones. This will make the sound quality much better. After I did that I came to love these headphones....

Soundquality. Fits my ears.

Ugly design.
