Comfy and fun to use
Comfy and fun to use Headphones. Never felt any niggling pain points like I have with previous models. Long battery life and suitable recharge period. Access to controls is easy and never had to fumble at all. I’d happily buy these again but these will surely last a few years yet
worth of its money
The Sennheiser RS Wireless Headphone System offers impressive wireless sound, a comfortable fit and extended range (through walls), and easily connects to your TV, computer or any audio source with the included cables. Connection is rock-solid and features include faux surround and bass boost modes.
As far as the design goes, it's a comfortable closed-back over-ear design that does a good job of keeping sound from leaking out so you don't disturb someone sleeping nearby. But the headphones fit snugly enough that you may be forced to take some quick breaks while wearing them over the course of a 2-hour movie.
Perfect For Movies
These are set up right next to the tv. I only watch movies and Netflix with these on because the TV has very tinny sounding speakers. Sound quality is awesome with them on - cannot fault it. The range is good too. Can get almost to the back of the house and be still in range. The only annoying thing is that I have to leave the earphone door permanently open on the TV to connect the input cable to the base. I would definitely buy them again if I lost them. They are great.
Wear Them Daily
I live in a noisy area so I put these on after dinner to watch TV. Absolutely love them. They charge on the cradle so they are always ready to go and I can walk all the way to the bathroom and back without losing connection.
Sound quality is excellent. Full and well balanced. My only gripe is the inside of the earpieces are dust magnets but I clean them up with some sticky tape from time to time. I recommend these headphones, my experience has been pretty much perfect.
not the best but not bad.
They are growing on me. Good for long term listening as not to aggressive.
I have added a chin strap to keep them on my head.
One of my wife's old Bra Straps...works a treat.
Good definition I have heard bits I have never heard on the speakers.
There is a bit of static at the start but this seems to improve with use.
Not the best I have ever used. But the others were not wireless.
Good but not Great.
Absolute Beast in the Home
Just simply does what it needs to do. Although it is at the lower end, make no mistake, when set up properly (and easily so), some great performance. The audio is luscious and very immersive for a radio headphone, convenient to have no cable and just so easy to connect and listen to music sources or video sources you'd rather watch from a distance.
Near perfect. Minor suggestion for design-improvement...
I am a HiFi/HighEnd fan - always was.
The name "Sennheiser" itself sounds like music in my ears when is comes to headphones.
They are the best since decades, as far as I am concerned.
Quality has it's price, however with AU$149, I think I got a bargain.
Sennheiser vs. Aldi:
However, while it was the first wireless headset, which I ever bought, my wife wanted to save money and when she was alone in town, she bought a wireless headset (not the bluetooth one, which is only good for a few meters distance) at Aldi for AU$39.
Decent value but not the best
The battery life and sound quality on this headset are both fairly decent - my backbeat pros and bose qc's are slightly better but were also pricier. Charges in a couple hours which is convenient, and I've had no connection errors yet. Sound-wise, these are nice and crisp in the higher ranges but can be a bit too bassy, soundstage is also very accurate which is a plus. Recommend for this price range - these are well built and have no hardware issues.
Great set of wireless headphones!
I've been using these headphones for the last few years and found them to be excellent for all types of media. Crisp audio, with very little to no static interference. Long battery life and really great for listening to music or watching movies. One of my favourite pairs of headphones, definitely recommend!
Best for movie headphone
headphone is very good for watching action movie, I really love this headphone when watching movie war or action film, explosion on war movie and akai movie for me feel is in the movie, do not regret buy this headphone, but if make this music headphones not so good but still ok but not so good.
Great headphones for its price
They are very convenient to wear around the house. The bass is deep and the ear cups are comfortable to wear. However, it can be very easy to hit the tuning button which can generate sudden noises. Same goes for the volume button. Full charge takes a couple of hours.
- RS 120 II
Finally got these headphones set up and working to expectations on my 55 inch Samsung Smart TV. A long tortuous process to connect to the TV's Digital Optical Output and get working. As RS120 11 has only RCA (Red and White) inputs to its base station I purchased a Digital Optical lead $10 and a Digital to Analogue Converter from Jaycar $64.50. The Headphones worked on all Sydney TV stations that output sound as Stereo. The HD channels of 7, 9, and 10 which output in Dolby Digital just produced an annoying static. Back to Jaycar to return $64.50...Converter and purchase a $99.95 Digital to Analogue Decoder which handles Dolby Digital as well as Stereo. So now get all channels and can say very happy with the result. As a byproduct with the addition of 2 piggy back RCA plugs ($3.95 each) into D to A Encoder I have now simultaneously connected the TV's sound to output my legacy (2002 Model) Sony Stereo Speakers. Needless to say ,starting from little connectivity knowledge, I have learned a hell of a lot in the last week about TV connectivity, and now have a good solution for my intermittent hearing issue.
These headphones do the job for the price, they have adequate sound quality, they are easy to setup and are sort of comfortable, but, and that is the reason ive given it 4 stars is, the design of these headphones dont keep the headphones secure enough for portability of walking around the house, they come lose (very easeley) and they can come off you head and drop!
Such a good product can hear everything i am listening to with such clarity having no cord attached to the headset makes for easy manoeuvring without being trapped close to the source TV computer or stereo the range is also really strong doesn't take long to charge with listening time very lengthy
Really comfy and light-weight. Great bass sound. Transmits through walls and ceilings so I can listen to the TV even when I am vacuuming and moving around the house. Easy operation and nice metal cradle for storing and recharging the headphones. Nice 2yr warranty and Rechargeable NiMH batteries included (size: AAA)
Don’t Buy These Headphones
I use headphones to watch TV due to a hearing loss. The loss of signal and resultant static blast from this product is regular, insistent and extremely frustrating. They regularly need retuning. They fall off your head if you look down. These are the second Sennheiser headphones I have purchased and I will never buy any of their product again. These are rubbish.
These headphones deliver a fairly good result when connected to TV and work out really well when everyone is asleep and I can listen without any noise disturbing others when in bed sleeping. The only thing I am disappointed about is that the sound drops out from time to time.
Blasts of static
Owned for 1 month. Quality of sound is reasonable. External noise a bit of a bugbear, but biggest problem is that it regularly loses connection with TV or computer and sends a constant and extremely loud blast of static through the headphones. This has happened twice in the last hour while watching a movie (i.e. no quiet periods to cause dropouts). Have decided to ask for refund.
Static blast is painful
I like these headphones except for one thing. If I am using them while watching you tube music videos and I come to the end of a video and go searching for the next video to watch if there is too long a lapse before starting the next video I get a blast of static in my ears. Its so bad it is very startling and for the first couple of times I ripped the phones off my head in reaction. It doesn't make me feel relaxed about the prospect of wearing them.
Do you like loud static blasting in your ears after a short period of silence? Buy these headphones!
Apparently the FCC requires that the radio transmitter shut down after a short period of inactivity. In this case after about 2 mins of silence (say, you pause, or there's just a quiet patch in what you're doing) ... BAM! The transmitter shuts off, and the headphones hammer your ears with loud static that's all the more jarring after the silence.
There's no excuse for this. Simple carrier detection would allow them to detect the transmitter shutdown and go silent instead. It's horrible usability.
For bonus stupid, the channel selection on...the headphones is a dial that's right beside the volume and easily bumped. Why they didn't use a 3-position switch like the base station is beyond me. You'll find that the headphones suddenly go quiet, or slightly static-y, or you lose stereo ... time to play with the knob again. Their quality is tolerable and battery life is OK, which is the only reason they aren't 1*. If you get given them for free they're worth having but they sure aren't worth the asking price. Oh, and they might be "Wireless" but the base station isn't USB-powered and there's no USB-powered alternative without the charging rail. So it's pretty useless for a laptop.
Useless if wanting to watch a DVD
Purchased a new 120 ll set and works great when just watching TV channels ONLY, when I switch to the DVD player to watch a movie they don't work. They stay on but the sound doesn't transfer through change back to antenna and sounds straight back tried multiple different scenario's re-tuning ect ect and cannot get to play movies! Very frustrating.
Helps me hear the TV without it being too loud
I brought these headphones to plug into the TV, so that I could hear the TV better and my lovely wife didn't have to put up with the volume being too loud. They are wireless and work very well. They sometimes need re-tuning, but that is easily done. Couple of small issues, the on/off label has worn off very quickly making it hard to remember which is which. This is an issue as if I leave them on the bed and they don't have a signal, they make a hissing noise that is disturbing to others in the room with normal hearing. Also I needed to get a analogue to digital sound converter to allow the headphones to work with my TV. Generally very happy, if you don't mind sitting watching TV with headphones on with others.
Fantastic sound quality
I haven't had these for long, but I have watched a few amazing battle scenes in movies whilst wearing these. They allow you to hear things that you wouldn't normally when just listening to the TV speakers. They do a great surround sound effect but allow you to also hear your surroundings too. I love the charging hanger. It works very well.
- RS 120 II
The sound from these is phenomenal - really great headphones! The price I paid for these was very reasonable, when trying in store I was expecting they would cost alot more, I was pleasantly surprised when I was actually told. I am super happy with these, great for plugging into my laptop and watching movies.
personally i think these are rubbish for the asking price very flimsy almost impossible to tune and the tuning does not stay put i was so disappointed i bought a new tv with bluetooth no regrets these phones given to charity
and i find them somewhat uncomfortable to wear not a patch on other sennheiser products eg momentus
Questions & Answers
Hi there. I’ve been using the Sennheiser RS 120 II and whenever I switch between Netflix selections or channels (I.e. when there is no audio playing into the headphones) a loud static sound comes through the headphones. Should this be happening? The only solution I see is to turn the headphones off whenever I switch between channels, but I can’t imagine this is supposed to happen? Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thankyou
My headphones were working perfectly until I had to replace my cable tv remote. When I programmed the new remote the headset only produces static noise .I'm assuming that the programming of the remote somehow changed the signal or whatever technology they use. Is there a way to reset them again or are they toast?
Connected to my guitar amplifier
For some reason after I set the volume I like the sound automatically reduces to a point where I need to keep turning up the headset volume.
I have the amp volume up high then adjust with headset volume dial.
Corded headsets don't do this
