Sennheiser RS 160 wireless headphones

 

Superb quality over wireless as never experienced before.

Great quality when compared to other wireless headphone brands. Extremely comfortable fit for almost everyone

A little low on the bass thump. The volume controls can be a little hard to use

If you used to hate wireless headphones because they could never offer the quality of a wired headset, the Sennheiser RS 160 has been built for you. Within a range of 20m, this headphone will give superb audio quality to rival the best corded...

Best wireless headphones for home theater

 

Reviewers say that the new Sennheiser RS 160 headphones are the best home-theater wireless model for the price. They use new Kleer wireless technology to stream lossless, CD-quality audio without interference. Their on-the-ear design features thick...

Very good sound quality, comfortable for extended use, excellent reception, good range

Hard-to-reach controls, uneven bass performance, expensive

Sennheiser RS 160 review

 

Excellent musical delivery with bags of attack, but treble is aggressive

Can run off batteries ; crisp, clean presentation

A touch too much hardness and aggression at the top end

Still an exciting, affordable option but tiring to listen to over longer periods

Sennheiser RS 160 headphones

 

The Sennheiser RS 160 are part of the company's digital wireless series, letting you enjoy your music without strangling yourself with cable. The RS 160 are of the over-the-ear type, giving you a full headphone and a separate transmitter station. The...

Sennheiser RS 160 review

 

Can the Sennheiser RS 160 produce quality wireless audio?

Good 'Kleer' tech ; Decent range ; Comfortable

Pricey ; Not very bassy

If you don't mind the lack of bass then these headphones will serve you well

Sennheiser RS 160 review

 

The RS 160s are the entry-level model in Sennheiser's current line-up of over-the-ear wireless headphones . Priced at around £140, they're not exactly a low-cost option, though, especially as they don't include fancy extras like noise-cancelling...

Great sound quality; long wireless range; good battery life; comfortable to wear.

Volume control is rather fiddly; no wired option.

The Sennheiser RS 160s may be rather pricey, and they lack some of the fancy features of similarly priced rivals, but they deliver simply gorgeous sound quality

Sennheiser RS 160 wireless headphones

 

A bit pricey, but these wireless headphones are genuinely good enough to replace a conventional set of wired headphones.

Pairing the headphones to the transmitter was very easy – they both automatically go into ‘enrolment’ mode when they're turned on and we were listening to our music within seconds of inserting the batteries

A cracking pair of cans, ideal for using at home: the wireless tech works wonders

Cinch to set up, good range, great sound

Could have better bass
