  • Summary: The fit is good sound quality is high needs to have a little more bass and volume for my style
  • Pros: Nice fit good sound for the money
  • Cons: A/C adapter will only charge on thing at time so you have to charge the base than unplug it and charge the headset if you step up to the rs 170 you won't have this problem

Good sound

  • Summary: First of all, you need a Jack Hammer to get into the packaging. Even with industrial type shears I had a hard time opening the packaging. The instructions for use are very minimal. Just pictures and very little written in English. The on/off volume controls are flush with the headphones, hard to operate when wearing the headphones. I would prefer a simple on/off switch and a round volume control, much easier to operate when wearing.
  • Pros: good sound and fit.
  • Cons: controls, packaging, sound delay.

All that glitters isn't gold.

  • Excerpt: I use the headphones to listen to TV at night, The sound is allot better than what I was using but trying to adjust the sound once the headphone is on can be challenging. The biggest disappointment is that base isn't a charging unit and the way you can charge it does not make any sense so I wait for the batteries to discharge and then add newly charged ones.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Great Sound, Stylish
  • Cons: Controls Hard To Use, Hard To Charge

Good quality but big eared-people beware

  • Excerpt: I have used those headset a few days but, unfortunately, I'm returning them. They're well built and the sound quality is good but the tip of my, apparently large, ears seem to slightly touch the grill inside the cups and it starts hurting after a couple of hours. Also, I was slightly disappointed to realize that for the added bulk, the sound wasn't all that much better than my older entry-level Bose headphones.
  • Pros: Good sound, Wireless
  • Cons: Bulky, Uncomfortable

Not as user friendly as discontinued model

Stephanie, Crutchfield

  • Summary: My outdated Sennheiser cordless headphones sat on a charger. I didn't have to replace batteries every time they ran out. I miss that. It's annoying. Also, the buttons on these headphones are tiny and indistinct from each other except for the tiniest little bump, which takes concentration for a few moments to find while wearing the headset. I wish I could return this, but I immediately threw away the packaging because I've always loved Sennheiser products..
  • Pros: Sound quality.
  • Cons: No charger stand; must replace batteries. Buttons indistinct from each other. Not user friendly.

Additional headphones

  • Summary: Difficult to get the additional headphones recognized by the wireless transmitter. Instructions are very limited and I have repeated the steps to no avail. It should have a multiple option that is easier to enact....for the time being, i have given up.

They provide good clarity, adequate bass

Chinasyndrome, Amazon

  • Summary: So I read a lot of reviews of wireless headphones and these kept coming up roses. So I took the plunge, and I think I got soaked. They are pleasant to listen to. They provide good clarity, adequate bass, clear and defined channel separation but definitely lack on the volume. The batteries last a long time.They slide off my head if I move at all. The cords are way, way too short. Especially if you consider the price.

clear audio but poor low frequency response. Not ideal for movies or bass rich media

  • Summary: good clear audio without any inerference however it is truly lacking in bass response. I wanted a good quality ear phones to use for watching Movies and video games to not disturb the baby and came across some reviews for the RS160 describing it as the clear winner. While they are good, they just simply couldn't handle any bass at all and would crack during action scenes completely.

A disappointing purchase

Smokey Joe "biglouis", Amazon

  • Summary: First off, let me state that this is the lowest-cost way for getting into Sennheiser's 'Kleer' wireless technology which really does deliver excellent, CD quality sound. If you have always been disappointed with the quality of the sound of you wireless headphones then you can rest assured these are excellent and equally as good as wired sound, imho. My dissatisfaction lies with the ergonomics of the set as a whole.
