RF Wireless Headphones
The RS 120 RF (Radio Frequency) Wireless Headphone lets you enjoy sound without the cumbersome cables associated with traditional headphones. This system features a lightweight on-ear headphone that receives sound from a transmitter base when connected to an analog output of any audio source (like a TV, sound system or computer). The sound quality is classic Sennheiser; detailed and balanced with good clarity and bass response. These lightweight headphones, featuring a padded headband for comfort are ideal for long listening or TV watching sessions.
RS 120 RF Wireless Headphones offer exceptional performance and value. They draw on decades of Sennheiser engineering expertise to ensure premium sound quality, reliability and durability.
This wireless headphone system comes with an easy to use recharging system. The headphones are powered with NiMH batteries (included). Once installed in the headphone ear cups, the batteries are recharged by simply placing the headphones on the transmitter base. The transmitter also features an automatic on/off circuit. It powers on when the connected audio source is activated without switches or buttons! Five minutes after the audio source is turned off, the transmitter shuts off to conserve power and battery life.

Here are some VERY useful tips to insure you successfully get your set working if you order. You'll only need to do this once to set things up.
(1) plug the charger stand into the wall power, then put the batteries in the headset, let the unit charge over night. The red charging light will come on when the headset is in the stand and go out when the headset is removed. The red light never changes to signal a charge, its either on when the set is in the cradle or off when they are not.
(2) then the next day, plug the charging stand sound jacks into the "output" sound jacks of your TV, (((FYI If everything is working right, you'll always see a red light on the charging stand anytime the unit is plugged into the wall AND the headset is hanging on the stand, the green light above the charging light will come on only when the TV on and is sending sound to the unit )))
(3) Turn on your TV, go to your TV's set up menu, find the Audio or sound section, find the place where you can fix the analog and/or digital sound to "fixed output", (it may say max output depending on your TV brand) and save the settings in your TV (if you do not do this step, the sound in your headphones will go up and down when you raise or lower your TV sound, changing this setting in your TV allows people in the room to adjust the TV speakers and will allow you to adjust your headphone set independently of each other) YOU SHOULD SEE A GREEN LIGHT ON THE CHARGING STAND IF YOUR TV IS OUTPUTTING TO IT. If not, figure out what is connected up wrong at your TV.
(4) Take the headphones off the charger stand, turn on the head phones, adjust the sound level to about midway, put them on your head, then begin to adjust the tune dial on the headset. As you rotate the tuning dial you will hear the static sound change. Keep adjusting until you hear only the sound from the TV program you are watching and no static noise. Adjust your headset volume as needed too. If you are getting static and sound, keep trying with the tuning dial on the headset until only clear sound comes through.
After figuring out how to make these work, I'm betting all of the returns and poor ratings are related to the poor instructions on set up instructions that come with these headphones. THEY ACTUALLY WORK GREAT, but I almost sent them back because it took me awhile to figure out how to properly set them up.
If you or your spouse is having hearing problems and you do not like having the TV volume cranked up, these are a great way to return peace to the house. I would have given them a 5 star rating except for the weak instructions that came with the headset.
the head phones work great for me, they are about the sound quality you would expect at this price range. and for anyone who cares, they are indeed RF, not bluetooth, so they wont be transmitting from your head, which is a big no-no for me. I sent back probably 6 or 7 bluetooth headsets because they were transmitting from the headset. I measured all of them with an electromagnetic detector meter and was seeing roughly 30 to 50 mW of radiation emanating from the headset. ALL OF THIS could be avoided if they don't include controls or voice audio input on the headset so that the headset has no need to transmit anything from your head to the connected Bluetooth device. but thats not what the public wants, they want devices which can transmit and receive signal
A pity -- I'm a longtime fan of Sennheiser headphones, having bought my first set (of venerable made-in-Ireland HD580's) back in the early nineties. These days I get lots of use out of my HD598's -- the silky highs, detailed midrange, concise bass, and airy soundstage are a pleasure. Too bad the brand has been on a steady downhill march for a few years.
Top reviews from other countries
- Volume wheel on the headset
- They sound pretty good.
- The receiver doubles as a charging station and a headphone hanger to keep them off the desk when not in use
- The battery lasts for quite a while (I have yet to actually run them out)
- Different channels so you can have multiple sets in the same house without interference
- A bit of static.
- Receiver turns off automatically after a few minutes of inactivity.
- The cables are a bit hard to plug in to the back of the base.
Being a bit of a wired snob in that I don't generally trust wireless devices* to provide equal fidelity to wired ones, so I didn't expect much from the RS120s. I was pleasantly surprised when I tried them out with a Hilary Hahn CD. They are open, so they've got a fairly light, airy sound that some may feel lacks punch, but is fine for most music and is not overly tiring on the ears. Tuning can be a little fiddly, and I think that it is important to plug the dock in to the motherboard jack rather than a jack on your speakers (if using them with a computer) as I got some crackling when I tried that. However, coverage was excellent after some adjustment, and I was able to roam the house accompanied by a soundtrack.
On to the physical aspects of the cans:
They full headphones, but surprisingly lightweight, so they don't really press down on your head. They are fairly large and don't grip much, so if you have a smaller head they may be a bit loose.
The volume and tuning dials are placed awkwardly on the back of one of the 'phones, although I don't know where else they could have been placed, perhaps on the side.
The dock is a bit unbalanced and can be knocked over easily, especially if the headphones are on it.
I'd recommend these to anyone who is considering midrange wireless headphones, they're pleasant sounding, easy to set up, quite comfortable, and reasonably priced.
Be advised that they are meant to be charged for about 24 hrs before first use, I am not sure if this impacts on the future capacity of the supplied AAA batteries, but it's probably a good idea to follow the instructions.
*This includes headphones, computer peripherals etc.
However, the flat pad design is not as comfortable to wear as the cup design found on the more expensive RS130 headphones which I wear at work. It's adequate, but doesn't feel as nice, and the headphones don't stay on quite so well, which may be an issue for you if you're wearing them whilst active (doing housework etc), but will not be an issue if you're just sitting down.
These headphones use a manual tuning wheel, unlike the RS130 which has automatic tuning with a simple button to jump to the next signal it can find. Once tuned in, you can ignore this though, it's no hardship to turn the tuning wheel until you're happy then leave it set at that.
As other commenters have said, having the identical tuning and volume wheels both on the right headphone was a silly design, but in practice it's really not a problem - just aim your finger a little higher than needed and slide down until you reach the first wheel, and you have the volume control. Works for me :)
Other than that piece of poor design though, the build quality feels reasonable, and they sit back on the base and charge very easily (unlike the Philips headphones I had before, which were very fiddly to get them sitting just right so that they would actually charge).
If you're going to use them a lot, I'd recommend spending the extra to get the RS130s (I wear them all day at work and love them) but for lighter use, these headphones are fine.
The two negative points people seem to say are the following, but I believe they are actually not negatives and are nicely balanced design decisions:
1, Volume and tuner slider switches are the same design so it is easy to confuse them. Well this is no problem once you have used them for a short while as you know which is which, moreover I am glad that they use the same design for both because this design is the best choice that I can think of. If they used a different design for one of the dials then one of them would the second best choice and not the best possible option.
2, Some people have said that they fall off when you move around the house with them a lot. Well I am glad that they are not too tight on the head because they are one of the few headphones that do not ache on the head and ears after having them on for an hour or so. This is because they sit gently on the head and not so they do not push strongly against the ears, of course this means that if you move your head around a lot when moving around a lot of dancing as they could fall off. If you are not wanting to dance a lot when wearing them, just wanting to move around gently or sit down and listen, then they are for you. This suits me as I would rather be comfortable and think they have made the best design choice.
With these wireless headphones I saw why Sennheiser are respected so much and it really is hot hype.
After a 24 hour charge I plugged in the various connections and expected to have a lot of fiddling about with tuning to the TV. In fact there was no need, as soon as I had plugged in and switched on, I was getting a clear, bright sound. Maybe I was just lucky but I checked the tuning dial anyway, it is quite easy to tune in and out so that the best signal is received. Adjusting the sound settings on my TV set gave me a full range of sound options to use with the headphones and the end result was very pleasing - good bass, mid range and treble tones and with a decent range of volume control (as long as you have your TV sound set to a sufficient level). I only encountered background hiss when the TV sound wasn't set high enough and the phones had to be set to compensate, so it really is worth playing about with the levels until you get a sound that is good for you - generally your sound source has to be set high enough to make the phones sound good.
So far I can't fault them - they produce great quality sound and keep the signal no matter where I am in the house. (I haven't tried the garden yet).
I didn't have a problem with fit, as I have a large head (62 cm hat size for reference) so the phones felt snug but comfortable on me.
For TV usage (which is my reason for getting them) I would recommend these. They even worked on a 20 year old Toshiba and made it sound great!
