Sennheiser RS65 review: Sennheiser RS65


Sennheiser RS65

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 Wireless RS 65 Headphone;


The whole thing about listening through headphones — is — there is the good, and the not-so-good. The good includes our ability to hear more deeply into the music, hear the details, the balance; to hear nearly free from other audio events in the...

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

Sennheiser RS65


We'd go with the lower-priced RS120s for sound, but many folks will appreciate the RS65s' comfort.

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.

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...

Consumer review by: Christopher Harnett (



Cordless headphones are deeply compromized. Normal headphones are simple things but a cordless set has to do everything that a normal set does but with the addition of a receiver and stereo amplifier in the headset chassis. This makes them expensive to...

Light and convenient ; The range covers the whole of my house and probably next door

Can be beaten by sub 30 headphones with cords ; The AKG equivalent lasts much longer ; Battery life is short

Consumer review by: John Whitehead (



a well rounded product, with superb build quality, excellent sound reproduction for the type of headphone and the cost. They remaind comfortable , even after listening to the full extended version of the Fellowship of the Ring DVD, 3.45hours!.

the RS65 RF provide clear sound reproduction for CD's and add a touch of home cinema sound to those people whom have yet to purchase bona fide AV cineama sound kit.

apart from the initial cost, there doesn't seem to be any! Maybe battery life is a ta too short, but you do get two batteries.
