Awesome Sound, When You Stay Put

 

Wireless headphones have come a long way over the last few years, and Sennheiser was one of the first companies to introduce a set of high-quality cans for those of us who like listen and move beyond the tether range of a headphone cable. Sennheiser's...

Lossless audio offers fantastic sound quality. Cushiony ear pads make for comfy long-term wear

Patchy wireless range kills the awesome sound buzz fast. Plastic shell and vinyl pads seem a bit chintzy for the price. And, ouch, that price

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 Review

 

Without a shadow of a doubt, the RS 220 combo is a delight to use. The sound will delight anyone and everyone who isn't a bass addict. However, what will put off a lot of potential buyers is the price of the device. This is meant truly for someone who...

Good sound quality, Neutral headphones � should appeal to a wider demographic, Comfortable to wear, even for a long innings, Blocks out ambient noise quite well, Lots of input options

HDR 220 may be too big for some users, Limited range, Buttons on the headphone prone to getting pressed inadvertently

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
