Conclusion: The RS 220 is the top of Sennheiser's line of wireless headphones. Instead of the Kleer technology offered on most of their wireless headphones, the RS 220 uses a lossless technology called direct-sequence spread spectrum (DSSS).
Pros: Excellent sound quality, Comfortable, Long battery life
Cons: Limited range, Prone to sound dropouts, High price
Excerpt: 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.
Pros: Lossless audio offers fantastic sound quality. Cushiony ear pads make for comfy long-term wear.
Cons: 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.
