Sennheiser RS 220

 

The Sennheiser RS 220 ($599) was conceived as a design statement and uses the same driver elements as the reference grade Sennheiser 600 series of wired headphones . Their plastic construction doesn't feel worthy of the price tag, but the material...

The Sennheiser RS 220 is a large, full-size headphone that uses advanced DSSS lossless wireless technology for exceptional sound quality.

The RS 220's shiny black plastic construction doesn't jive with its lofty price tag and the digital connection doesn't work with Dolby or DTS audio signals.

The Sennheiser RS 220 is one of the best-sounding wireless headphones on the market, but its super sonics don't offset its ambitious price tag when other models in the same line offer similar performance for less.

The Sennheiser RS 220 is a wireless headphone system that sounds fantastic enough to warrant its jaw-dropping price.

Excellent audio performance. Very strong wireless audio transmission with no compression. Comfortable. Versatile connectivity with most cables provided

Quite expensive. Intended for home use only

Sennheiser RS 220 wireless hi-fi headphones

 

Sennheiser's newest wireless headphones finally deliver proper, audiophile-grade quality

Excellent sound quality for wireless ; Long battery life and easy recharge ; Extremely comfortable

High price tag ; Minor background noise at high receiver volume ; Heavier than wired models

Sennheiser's RS 220 wireless headphones genuinely surprised us: their sound quality is easily on par with the better wired models we've heard, and they have the advantage of being completely wireless. We didn't experience any drop-outs or loss of sound...

Sennheiser RS 220 review

 

The Sennheiser RS 220 wireless headphones come in a big box, but there's a reason for this other than just showing off. Bundled with the HDR 220 headphones is the TR 220 — a glossy black obelisk that acts as an all-in-one headphone charging station,...

Wireless headphones with high-end sound. But are they worth £350?

Wide, open sound ; Clever, versatile dock design ; Very comfortable

Uncompressed wireless transmission ; Lack excitement with some material ; Lesser battery life than previous models

Neat wireless solution with great sound quality

Transmitter doubles as charging dock; digital and analogue inputs; clear sound

Still not a match for wired options; occasional slight crackles

Review: Sennheiser RS 220

 

Sennheiser's RS 220 are a pair of digital wireless headphones that aim to deliver sound quality 'very close to the audiophile ideal'. In line with that aim, they retail at a premium $850: more than many people spend on PCs or music players.

Sennheiser RS220 wireless headphones review

 

Sennheiser's RS220 headphones prove once and for all that wireless connectivity is good enough to produce audio that's good enough for audiophiles.

Sennheiser provides yet another high quality audio products but manages to maintain the quality while getting rid of the cables.
