Did you know?

Kleer technology is a serious competitor to Bluetooth in terms of signal reliability, longer battery life and overall sound performance. It is also robust enough to permit multiple listeners from a single source. The difference between the Kleer-powered set and traditional cordless headphones is dramatic. Some cordless headphones broadcast use FM, which has a much lower resolution than CD, and background hiss and interference can also affect the sound.

Proprietory (manufacturers’) or SCART adaptors may be used so that the headphones do not cut the TV sound for others in the same room.

Sennheiser recommends this headphone for...

...all music lovers who like to move with and to their music at home or out and about without tripping over cables or disturbing the neighbours. For superb, crystal-clear sound without the hissing and pulsing that affects some FM models.

Compatibility

The HDR 160 headphones and the TX 160 transmitter can be connected to any line-out jack on a mobile or home audio devices such as a tablet or a TV.

I read a few reviews to check if I'd be adding anything new, and decided to make a few comments;
they do hug to the ears quite heavily which can be a bit uncomfortable for extended use, but the plus side is they do block out a fair amount of ambient noise.
The issue I had was with a previous set of Sennheiser Wireless headphones, the RS120s where I had to keep retuning them and got terrible inteference at times. I was using them to listen to music and films on an iMac with loads of mobiles, pagers GPS devices nearby so maybe I was just asking too much. After only a few days I gave up and found out about Kleer technology which these use. At a Richer Sounds they thought the model up, the RS180 had Kleer and the RS160 didn't but that isn't correct (Even the Sennheiser site doesn't list the RS160 as Kleer when you search). The box clearly said it does, as does the manual and from owning a set I can testify that is the case. With Kleer you get zero interference and it's a technology that has a wider bandwidth than Bluetooth so can actually provide CD quality sound.
The range of thse is good as I can go downstairs and still hear them fine and live in a house with thick walls. I can find the limits of the range if I go into the kitchen though. Not an issue for me, but the RS180 has a longer range if you need it.
I really bought them to listen to films late at night but love them so much I find myself listening to music through them and being able to walk around and always have sounds.

Some women collect shoes I collect headphones. For some years I have been on a quest to find the very best wireless headphones on a limited buget. (These were a gift!)
Things to consider befor buying. You will never get a sound from wireless headphones to compare with really good wired headphones. (Having said that, listening to mp3 files, the RS160 sound better than my elderly bose wired headphones, but movies do not.)
SOUND... Apart from saying that although I was happy with the sound of the RS130 especially the surround sound, the sound of RS160 is in a different class, much better qualiy all round. I am not going to discuss sound in detail, there are hundreds of reviews that discuss sound, in my view sound sound is so personal and depends so much on the type of music you prefer and what you are going to use them for, sound reviews are at best a guideline.
BASE STATION....RANGE.. No longer big and ugly, now small and pretty, and totally portable, no longer will you have to test the range (unless you are listening on a pc / Tv)..just put some batteries in it and take the base station and your mp3 player with you, fits nicely in your handbag or medium size pocket. If you are listening on a pc etc the range of the RS 160 is less than the RS130, although the RS160's just about reached my greenhouse 100 feet away they cut out when I moved, so if you are going to near the max of the range you will have to stand /sit still!!!
COMFORT...Sennheiser!

OK here's the story. My 92 year old mother has a 3 year old hearing aid, which is fine for talking to other people but no use for the television. She couldn't pick up women's tones or if someone spoke too quickly. We were advised initially to go for a new up-to-date hearing aid, which was valued at over 2000 pounds. This was better but still not good enough. Then another hearing aid salesman came and suggested we try headphones before we start considering splashing out loads of money on another hearing aid. Having owned a brilliant pair of Sennheiser headphones in the 70's I decided to start my investigation there. The thing that made me choose this one was the Kleer Voice. So I ordered them and to see my mother smile after she put the headphones on was worth every penny spent. She now hears EVERYTHING. If you know anyone in a similar situation then I highly recommend these headphones. The only downside is that when the receiver is plugged into the headphone socket on the TV it kills the sound for anyone else in the room. That is unless you have a dual sound TV which will work fine. As my TV, although only just over 12 months old, didn't have dual sound, I hooked up my hi-fi speakers along with an amplifier and used phono leads from the amp to the sound in sockets on the back of the TV.

Great sound, easy set up and you recharge the headphones and sender unit from one charger. Also a neat touch, you can run the sender on it's batteries so less wires unless you need them. Comfortable to wear and a good range. The closed backs means you can use them in the same room as someone reading or listening to another source.

Note, the sender unit has a 3.5mm mini stereo jack so you will need an adaptor for 6.35mm 1/4" standard stereo sockets on most AV Amps etc.

The sound quality is relaxed and balanced, the headphones are comfortable and light and they don't hiss crackle or pop.
However, please don't think you can wander around within 20mtrs of the base station and get perfect reception: you can't.
You can get up to nearly 30mtrs 'line of sight' but inside the house realistically, they'll work really well up to about 8mtrs most of the time through a door or maybe a wall but cut out as you pass a corner, or a cupboard, or sometimes when you turn your head a fraction. It's almost impossible to predict exactly where they will or won't work and some pieces of architecture have a much greater effect than others. You find yourself doing things like going into the kitchen for a coffee and standing on one leg leaning sideways to keep reception.
They're too expensive to be used just for watching TV or lying down and the cheap IR ones will do just as well for that if you don't want to move, so I'm not really sure what market they are for.
I really thought they would work well up to 20 mtrs and that would have been perfect for me. It's probably just my misunderstanding, but I wouldn't have bought them if I'd known you can't really use them to walk around more than just the immediate vicinity so be warned.

I've come back to this review now I've had the headphones for several months to say I've finally given up on them and I'm going to replace them.
It's not just the irritating reception, I've also never got used to the on off switch. Having 3 functions, it's very difficult to tell when they are switched off and you really need to come back after a few minutes to see whether the light is flashing and made sure.
