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 wireless headphones are for the audiophile with the widest wallet

 

The RS 220 is a worthwhile buy at $599, and the $329.95 RS 180 headphones sound close enough in sonic quality for everyone else shopping without an unlimited budget.

The ; 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.

Sennheiser RS 220 review

 

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...

Sennheiser RS 220

 

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 Headphones

 

I have tried wireless before last year with the TDK series and thought it fairly ok but lacking in any depth compared to wired headphones. In fact I have been pretty skeptical about the possibilities of wireless and the various technologies at play to...

The best yet in the wireless market I have no doubt. The best yet in terms of matching a traditional wireless model and based on the HD600 house sound you are going to find a lot of fans already who might just give this a try. For me it comes close but...

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

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

 

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

Sennheiser RS 220 review

 

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

A very neat wireless solution with great sound quality

Sennheiser RS 220 review

 

Wireless headphones with great sound

Comfortable ; Good sound quality ; Rechargeable battery

Very expensive ; Sound leak

Overall this is good set of headphones that when in range offer above average sound quality, as long as you stay in range. There are loads of connections built into the brilliantly useful base, but the price tag is still incredibly high for what you get.
