Awesome Sound, When You Stay Put

Wired
2 December 2013
  • 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. Sennheiser’s marquee offering, the RS 220s , are equipped with a technology that offers superior sound quality via uncompressed audio streaming. For this price, I want to feel like I’m sitting in Carnegie Hall.
  • 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.

Sennheiser RS 220 wireless headphones are for the audiophile with the widest wallet

CNET
9 December 2012
  • Summary: The Sennheiser RS 220 is one of the best-sounding wireless headphones on the market, but its super sonics don't offset its ambitious price tag when other models in the same line offer similar performance for less.
  • Cons: The RS 220's shiny black plastic construction doesn't jive with its lofty price tag and the digital connection doesn't work with Dolby or DTS audio signals.

22 May 2012
  • Summary: Without a shadow of a doubt, the RS 220 combo is a delight to use. The sound will delight anyone and everyone who isn't a bass addict. However, what will put off a lot of potential buyers is the price of the device. This is meant truly for someone who carries the "audiophile" tag on the shoulders.
  • Pros: Good sound quality, Neutral headphones � should appeal to a wider demographic, Comfortable to wear, even for a long innings, Blocks out ambient noise quite well, Lots of input options
  • Cons: HDR 220 may be too big for some users, Limited range, Buttons on the headphone prone to getting pressed inadvertently

  • Excerpt: If there's lust in electronics, Sennheisers RS 220 inspire it. The headphones and wireless transmitter are both dressed in glossy black, with silver lining subtly accentuating certain traits. Even alone the headphones capture a lingering gaze with its voluptuous cups elegantly tied together by its comfortable head brace.
  • Cons: Long sessions will inspire some sweat in the cups, prompting you to take 5 while your ears dry up. It's an inconvenience, but the headphones perform that well you're eager to forgive this shortfall.

Sennheiser’s newest wireless headphones finally deliver proper, audiophile-grade quality

Good Gear Guide.au
20 September 2012
  • Summary: Sennheiser's RS 220 wireless headphones genuinely surprised us: their sound quality is easily on par with the better wired models we've heard, and they have the advantage of being completely wireless. We didn't experience any drop-outs or loss of sound quality in our testing, and the RS 220's battery life is long enough for a full work day. The headphones are comfortable and easy to use -- our only complaints are the weight and the high asking price.
  • Pros: Excellent sound quality for wireless, Long battery life and easy recharge, Extremely comfortable
  • Cons: High price tag, Minor background noise at high receiver volume, Heavier than wired models
