Features

Overview: The Sennheiser RS 160 combines wireless hi-fi audio quality with a truly versatile compact transmitter for listening at home, on-the-go, or at the office. This wireless headphone system consists of a pair of wireless headphones (HDR 160) and a compact transmitter (TX 160) which runs on AC or battery power to best accommodate your application. The RS 160 utilizes Kleer's uncompressed digital wireless audio transmission, offering a range of up to 60 feet, audiophile-grade sound and reception to four optional pairs of Sennheiser Kleer headphones. The Sennheiser RS 160 offers automatic, interference-free pairing between the headphone and transmitter.

Kleer Wireless Transmission Technology: The Sennheiser RS 160 headphone system features the digital wireless audio transmission technology from Kleer. Kleer technology transmits uncompressed audio over a robust 2.4 GHz digital link (2.4-2.8GHz), enabling you to enjoy your music without the hassle of cables. Kleer's uncompressed digital wireless transmission delivers CD-quality sound.

Note: Kleer technology will not interfere with wireless networks or other 2.4 GHz devices.

Wireless Headphones: The RS 160's wireless headphones utilize audiophile-level transducer systems with powerful neodymium magnets for clear and detailed audio reproduction. They provide a transparent and balance sound image with excellent bass response. Leatherette earpads and headband cushions provide a comfortable fit. The headphones receive their wireless stereo audio signal from the included transmitter. The wireless headphones are powered by two supplied rechargeable NiMH "AAA" batteries (for up to 24 hrs). You can connect the headphones to the included AC adapter via the charging Y-cable to recharge the batteries (approx. 16 hrs).

Portable Transmitter: The RS 160 employs a compact, portable transmitter which operates off of AC power and  can also run on battery power. The transmitter connects to your television's or audio system's audio output and then transmits the audio signal wirelessly to the RS 160's wireless headphones. The transmitter comes supplied with an AC power adapter and can also function off of two "AA" batteries (sold separately) for up to 120 hours.

Note: The transmitter requires two "AA" NiMH rechargeable batteries (1.2V/1,300mAH) or two "AA" alkaline batteries (1.5V) for portable use.

Multi-Receiver Mode: Up to 4 Sennheiser Kleer headphones can be connected to one transmitter so 4 people can listen to the same sound source.

Note: Additional Kleer headphones sold separately.

Auto Power Off: If there is no signal from the transmitter for more than 5 minutes, the headphones automatically switch to standby mode. If the headphones are outside the transmission range or switched to off for more than 5 minutes, the transmitter automatically switches to standby mode.

Wirel less headphones March-22-14

A good pair of headphones to use when listening to TV


 
Sennheiser RS 160 March-17-14
Reviewer: Bill from North Carolina  
I purchased this headset to help with my hearing deficit.  I especially miss the frequencies for dialog on TV.  Using this unit I can watch TV and hear perfectly.  My wife's hearing is normal so the volume on the TV can be set very low to suit her, while I can use the headset to direct sound perfectly to my ears.  The unit did not come with a correct cable: RCA left and right to the stereo mini jack needed by the unit.  The connection I used was the RCA audio out on my satellite tv box to the mini Jack input on the transmitter.


 
Excellent Headphones January-07-14
Reviewer: BillH from Fort Myers, FL  
Excellent wireless headphones at a reasonable price. Perfect for a small condo with adjoining rooms where the wife wants to watch HGTV while you are watching sports. Easy to set up and use. Only challenge in set up was that I had to connect the input directly to the cable box instead of the HDTV.

Great headphones December-30-13
Reviewer: Mike from Washington, DC  
I bought these to use on the elliptical/treadmill, because I previously had to turn up the TV to such a loud volume to drown out the noise of the exercise machines.  I could not use the "sports" headphones because my TV is not Bluetooth enabled.  So these Sennheiser wireless headphones were the perfect solution at a decent price.  They were very easy to set up and connect to the TV within minutes.  They are very comfortable, even while exercising, and the sound is great.  I can now listen to the TV at a reasonable volume and I can hear the sound much better, including surround sound on TV programs.  Most importantly, my wife no longer wants to kill me for blasting the TV in the house while exercising.
