The RS 160 is a two-part headphone system, powered by a couple of NiMH batteries and a transmitter that connects to your output device. It's very simple to set up as the whole system is plug and play. This compact and portable transmitter utilizes Kleer's uncompressed digital wireless audio transmission. It offers an effective range of 20m (line of sight), and can serve up to four pairs of headphone.

I know buy wireless headphone. it is a good sound quality while depends source. perfect for use in a room.

Experience: 2 Years

Great sound
No 'hiss', even when there's no dialog at all
Good range (even across walls)
Can pair many headphone sets to the same receiver
Very slight echo is you turn up the TV volume at same time
Expensive (unless on sales) but worth it
You have to press the pairing button each time you turn them on
I got 2 of those about 2 years back and I purchased another one recently to offer as a gift.
They are absolutely great. I find them comfortable for my head, sound is really good and balanced and there's absolutely no hiss or interference noise: they can be dead silent if there's no sound coming from your source.
I also tested them from one room away (with a wall in between) and they still work great. No interference with my 2.4 GHz router (didn't try 5 Ghz) but since they have digital processing that shouldn't be an issue.
Only slight issue I found was that when listening to TV, if you turn up the TV volume loud enough (sounds coming from the TV speakers as well as from these headphones) you will hear an echo. I assume that's because there's a slight delay in converting the sound source from analog to digital before it's sent to the headphone. But that's not much of an issue for me: I turn off the external TV speakers when wearing these.
You can also have several of the headphones paired to the same receiver (I personally use 2): great for watching movies with your spouse without waking us the kids!

Experience: 1 Days
-works great. signal is strong
-sounds pretty good
Great set of cans from sennhiser. they arent as great as wired headphones but still great

Comment: The RS 160 deliver with solid design and construction, great sounding audio and are comfortable for long periods.

Comment: The RS 160 headphones were a delight to use. They’re not exactly cheap, but the audio quality was the best we’ve heard from any wireless headphones. Bluetooth headphones might be cheaper – and, of course, you can make mobile phone calls with them too – but the Kleer technology used here is definitel
