- RS 120 II
When sound is low or silent on tv, the transmitter shuts down (this is done on purpose by sennheiser) and you get an earful of white noise at full volume.
My old Mum has a pair of Phillips but she keeps breaking them so these are a fill in while I repair the Phillips. They were only tested when I got them and they seemed fine, it was only recently that she broke the Phillips again they were put into proper service, and failed miserably.
Purchased in December 2020 at Amazon for $199.00.
Good quality build
Good set of headphones which are built well with quality materials but their service could use some improving. I bought my pair online and it took close to 2 weeks to be shipped
Fall off my head too easily
Reasonable quality. On ear not over ear. Did ask salesperson if I could take them out of box but no...he said over ear. Fall off my head which is annoying.
Purchased in February 2020 at JB Hi-Fi Retail Stores for $187.00.
Although I’m a fan of sennheisar head phones, I was disappointed to find this particular product not working at all after a month. At first it worked well, and the sound quality was great. It didn’t take long though to find it completely mute and consequently useless. Not sure if it was a one off, or if there was a faulty design in the batch but was dissatisfied with the end result.
Great if looked after. Go buy one. Properly Great sounding On Ear type muffs
Best quality to value readily avail in Oz. Fab Soundz really! But leaks sound as not fully enclosed.
Lasted well for 2 yrs till dropped at least twice this year. Then freq static and less wireless range!
Easily falls off head when bending or looking downwards. Better if we're designed as "over ear" sealed type. Hide em from the kids & clutz!!
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.
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.
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.
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

NOTE ON EAR Headphones. Only useful if you are sitting still, no good for high quality music listeni
Bought these following reading some of the reviews to replace the high end Sennheiser over ear wireless headphones when the power unit on them failed after a power surge.
PROBLEM ONE: They are ON EAR NOT OVER EAR as stated on the Sennheiser site. Soft foam pads BUT THEY FALL OFF if you tilt forward or bend over. You cannot walk around and do major jobs with these, unlike the over ear which anchor onto your head.
PROBLEM TWO: Sound quality is not anything near the quality of the more expensive models. If you listen to classical music forge...t these, the low hiss will ruin your experience. WHY THEY ARE OK FOR ME: I start work early and have to work from home for the first hour and a half and my wife is retired and sleeps in. I can do the hour plus work listening to the overseas tv news programs in the room next to the bedroom without disturbing her. They are brilliant for this.
Transmitter build quality questionable?
I bought these for my mother who enjoys staying up late watching TV.
After 6 months the transmitter died. I took the RSII 120 back to the retailer and was provided a new replacement box. I thought this time the new transmitter was dead straight out of the box, but it was actually okay. The transmitter is a rather quirky ON/OF design however and had me very confused.
The sound quality she has told me is very good, as is to be expected from a well known reputable audio brand such as Sennheiser who I have bought many products from before.
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
