Excerpt: They have a great sound and a long distance! We were wanting them for live recordings so we don't get tangled in wires... but there is a slight delay. Enough to be quite annoying and makes recording not possible.
Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight
Excerpt: I bought this to replace another Sennheiser headphone which would have white noise present if it didn't receive a signal in a certain amount of time which was annoying. This one remains clear and has good sound quality. I like how the transmitter can be battery-powered as well.
Excerpt: I purchased this wireless headphone based on very positive reviews here and elsewhere, and on the good service I've gotten for several years from an older Sennheiser model 65. I use the new RS 160 for TV, stereo, and for portable music (iPod).The sound from the headphones is excellent.

Summary: Sennheiser has great sounding tech, and if I was rating just on sound these would 5+ eggs. This set deserves better ear cups and cushion than the kind you'd find on the cheapest no-name kit. Please bring back real switches and rotary pots and spare us from blink counting.
Pros: No hiss, no static, no tuning needed. Range for me is decent with line of sight in an area that is RF congested. The bass seems tight and balanced, with very clear mids and detailed highs. There is nothing 'tinny' about this set, and listening to it for hours almost every day has shown me the det...
Cons: My biggest gripe is the controls and indicators for the set. Lack of an actual 'off' switch: In order to power off/on, you have to hold the button for about two seconds. Not holding the button can result in merely muting the headset. I'm one of those that find having to wait annoying since I use ...
