Sennheiser Wireless Headphones Review


These headphones saved my marriage! End of review.

Kidding (sort of). So what do you do when you live in a one-bedroom urban apartment with nothing but a sliding door between your living and bedrooms . . . and your husband likes to watch loud movies and TV shows with a ton of violence and gross noises like Walking Dead? Hide in the powder room and do your nails? Yes, most of the time. But sometimes one actually wants to do something other than her nails, and that's where these headphones come in. (And to be fair, he doesn't always love listening to my TV shows from the other room either.)

These retail for around $100, but I got the Sennheiser RS120 On-Ear 926MHz Wireless RF Headphones with Charging Cradle from Amazon for an amazing deal in their Warehouse Deals section. There are a couple of ways to get to Warehouse Deals on Amazon. One is to just go directly to that section and search for items, and the other is to find an item you want and look for "used" ones for sale with the seller "Amazon Warehouse Deals." Always read the description, but in my experience, the "used" stuff from Amazon Warehouse Deals is just open-box stuff that doesn't look used at all.

But even if you can't get a Warehouse Deal on these, I think they would still be a marriage saver. They were pretty easy to set up and get very good sound quality. Not only do we not annoy each other with our TV shows any more, I notice things when I am watching TV that I never noticed before, like the audience comments on Chelsea Lately and subtleties to music soundtracks on movies.

We've had this problem since we moved into this place a couple of years ago, and I actually had a cheaper pair of wireless headphones that I bought online a while ago, but neither of us ever used them because they were so staticky. These do not have that problem.  I did learn a trick from an Amazon reviewer- If you turn the TV volume all the way up and the headphone volume on the lower side, you get better reception than the other way around. They are comfortable to wear for hours and they charge easily by just setting them back on their stand! I wish I had purchased these a long time ago, but glad we have them now.
