Wireless headphones; SRS surround processing; base/stand recharges batteries; extra battery included; built-in volume control.

Pricey; sound isn't nearly as detailed as that of Sennheiser's corded 'phones.

These extremely lightweight wireless headphones are easy on the ears but sound a little too mellow for our taste.

Sennheiser RS 65 wireless headphones


The basic idea of wireless headphones is a very good one

It could stand to be cheaper, yes, but it costs this much for a reason. Recommended

Consumer review by:

"Been using these for years - great headphones"


Great cordless headphones. I go to sleep before my wife, and she uses these to watch TV almost every night.

Great sound - reliable

Unique/expensive replacement battery

"I was NOT happy"


I did not like these headphones. Once I managed to get the signal locked in, it would drift off after a while. Additionally, the ear cups were poorly vented and I'd start to sweat after a short time.

Wait, I'm trying to think.

Bad reception, too tight and made me sweat.

"too mellow, too light"


those headphones are nice, but feels cheap. the propietary line in jack upset me cause i can put extensions directly to the dock and the cable is a bit too short. Average reception, don't reach my 1st floor kitchen (i live in 2-floor apartment) Mellow...

Two batteries included, SRS processor, nicely cushioned.

accepts too much interference, auto tune from the receiver takes too long to found the signal.

"Some of the Best Wirless at reasonable Price"


While most of don't really use headphones for primary movie or music listening pleasure, these headphones allow the user to listen to music/movies, to crank the sound up, and to not disturb others in the house. The price is fair. Batter life is also...

Good signal levels and good suuround sound

Could have better HF response

Consumer review by:

"Good sounding wireless headphones that won't drift on you."


These may not sound "bright" and "forward" in the highs to some, but it is just right for me. Other headphones are tuned to sound like a tinny boom-box but this one is tuned to have true high fidelity. Higher prices wireless Sennheisers have built in...

Never run out of batteries (2 included, base charges both). Good sound quality. Very light and comfortable. Can be used from your record/line out or headphone jack.

Just nit-picking: Doesn't sound as good as a wired Sennheiser headphones at similar price.

SENNHEISER RS65 Circumaural Wireless RF Headphone


I didn't put best because of the batterie. After 4 hours you need to reload your batterie. They should send two batterie with the box. But this is the quality is great. That's a good headphone to buy.

SENNHEISER RS65 Circumaural Wireless RF Headphone


These headphones are great, overall!!!!!!!!! Pros: -Great sound quality. The bass reception is excellent, and if I enable surround sound, they sound better than my 4.1 surround sound system (it's a cheap speaker system). -If you're close to the base,...

Great sound quality. The bass reception is excellent, and if I enable surround sound, they sound better than my 4.1 surround sound system (it's a cheap speaker system) ; If you're close to the base, the sound quality is very clear. The reception...

MY BIGGEST COMPLAINT about this set is how uncomfortable they are to wear. The design is such that the phones squeeze the head and even hurt my ears at times ; The reception distance is not 300 ft as advertised; it's more like 150 feet. If you exeed...
