Excerpt: I was using my HD 280s, but the wire was starting to get in the way, plus my workstation is spaced out. So that was my reasoning for buying the RS 160. Sound quality wise, the HD's seem better to me, but I think it's mainly because there is no reciever to go through. So the RS 160's are not as "hot" in that regard. However, being an editor who wears headphones for 5+ hours at a time, these are great.
Excerpt: Just set up the wireless headphones, and the early reviews are very positive, in so far as how it works. It was easy to set up, the link connects quickly, I seem to have great range (can walk throughout the house with minimal interference, etc. The only slight negatives: 1) the earphones are not very comfortable. Specifically, they are too tight. After a half-an-hour, they definitely start to irritate my ear. Maybe with time they will loosen up.

The RS160 is significantly better, true sound, no interference, and the headset fits my head perfectly. I find the headset to be very comfortable. My wife also used them and commented on how well they worked and how comfortable they were. This is a great product for the price.

I use it for TV mostly with much better results than a sound bar. Only two issues worth noting, the head phone becomes heavy after a while and requires a break to let your ears recover and the ear piece controls are hard to find and use.. But overall it's a good choice well worth the money.
Summary: You have to experience it to believe it ... not the headphones, but the packaging - hell and death, what an ordeal! Blister pack like no other that actually cut my wife as she struggled with it and with a special cutting tool. Oh, yes, the headphones: they are great! I was skeptical, frankly, because of our setup: the signal has to go through a closet door where our receiver is located, through a hallway, through the great room wall, and go another 12 to get to a...
