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
12 September 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.
  • Pros: The Sennheiser RS 220 is a large, full-size headphone that uses advanced DSSS lossless wireless technology for exceptional sound quality.
  • 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

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

Review Sennheiser RS220 hoofdtelefoon

Alpha-Audio
13 September 2014
  • Conclusion: De Sennheiser RS220 heeft een rustig klankkarakter. Typisch Sennheiser kunnen we wel zeggen. Echt sprankelend hoog heeft het niet, maar daar staat tegenover dat we geen vervorming meten. Het comfort is bijzonder hoog. En het aantal ingangen op de dock (die ook laadt) is uitstekend. Absolute aanrader.
  • Pros: Rustig karakter, Meet uitstekend, Veel ingangen
  • Cons: Mag iets meer sprankelen
