Sennheiser RS 120 II - The outstanding wireless headphone
21 November 2013
Summary: I think one can actually shortlist and pick from a number of options at this price range. But at the same time I also feel it is ‘the’ best because it is the great grant Sennheiser after all.
Pros: First and foremost, the biggest kick for me is RS 120 II’s wirelessness and its splendid audio transmission. It really does not let anything go wrong or come in between. The sound is its biggest USP and the supraural cans of the headphone make it functional all the more. Plus, the plethora of fea...
Cons: The offered range does not work for me. Also, I wish there were more colors to choose from.
Pros: For the reasonable price, excellent sound - light in weight - good build quality.
Cons: If you wish to use this unit not just directly with a TV but with an AV Receiver you may or may not be able to do it easily. In my case I purchased a Radio Shack audio/video selector switch (for about $18 with much cheaper versions available on the Internet). Then, I was able to take DVD output a...
Summary: The auto-shutoff thing people complain about is kinda bogus. Yes the base unit will turn off after about a minute of total silence, but it just puts out a low "hiss" (same sound as when the TV is tuned off). The "hiss" is not very loud - not a big deal really.
Pros: Good quality sound. The re-charge base is nice. Very nicely packaged with every possible audio connector included. But if you have a typical HDTV you wont need any of them - they come manufactured with a built-in L/R RCA connector. Just plug them right into the TV and you're good to go. Build/man...
Cons: A little loose-fitting. They fit on top of the ears, not over them, so you cannot swing or dip you head much or they will slip off. But if you are sitting still (or just walking around) listening to the TV they are fine.
Pros: They sound great and have a long range to them. Plus with the multiple audio connectors that come with it they work on pretty much anything that outputs sound.
Cons: You have to keep adjusting the headset if you move about 2 to 3 inches from where you set it or you will start to hear alot of static. This starts to get really annoying after 10-15 min. so you cant really where them for a long time without having to keep fixing this issue.
Pros: Works great hooked up to my TV. Great if you are a little hard of hearing and sometimes it sounds like people are just mumbleing on the TV. Sound definition is superb. Brings your TV to life and more enjoyable.
Cons: Not too comfortable after extended use. I have another Sennheiser headphone with cupped earphones which are VERY comfortable. That's the only reason I subtracted 1 egg.
Summary: I had visions of my wife being able to use these whenever she wanted to listen to the TV late at night. I don't think this would happen if she had to open up the cabinet, find the headphone wire, and plug it in the front.
Pros: Wireless is nice, rechargeable base works well. It seemed to have good reception. Sound quality was pretty good, but like others have said, it sounds like an FM radio station, because that is pretty much what it is. But I was happy with the sound.
Cons: The headphones became uncomfortable on my ears within a few minutes of usage. There is an occasional hiss in the signal, just like an FM radio, and there is also a small bit of static when the sound is quiet (like between songs). Those weren't terrible, though. The reason I am returning them is b...
