More than 20 years ago, I bought my first pair of wireless headphones in the days before Bluetooth technology was widespread. The headphones I bought used FM wireless to transmit audio and it could be a bit hit and miss in terms of clarity and tuning.

The headphones I had were made by Sennheiser and came with a base station that doubled as a charging stand. Compared with what else was on the market at the time, the Sennheisers were way ahead of the pack and I used them to watch TV late at night without waking the rest of the house.

Fast forward two decades and Sennheiser is still selling a version of those wireless headphones I bought at the turn of the century. However, the latest version announced today now features the latest Bluetooth technology. Apart from that, they look very similar to the headphones I bought all those years ago.

The new Sennheiser RS 120-W wireless on-ear headphones feature three different sound modes for a customized listening experience. Using advanced Bluetooth LE audio transmission, the RS-120 can deliver a clear and undistorted sound and feature a long battery life plus an improved design for improved wearing comfort. The Sennheiser RS-120 have all the ingredients necessary for a successful binge-watching session with your favorite box sets.

​Depending on the type of entertainment, users of the RS-120 can select between Speech, Music and Neutral sound modes. Furthermore, to ensure a detailed and undistorted sound, the RS 120-W use advanced LE audio, which enables audio streaming with Bluetooth Low Energy transmission technology. LE audio includes the new high-quality LC3 audio codec. The LC3 delivers clear audio while offering a low latency signal so that sound and vision are always in sync.


​The RS 120-W headphones have intuitive controls for adjusting the headphone volume levels independently of the TV. In addition, a comfortable on-ear design has light ear pads and a soft headband making the RS 120-W’s comfortable enough to wear for extended periods of TV viewing.

​​With a battery life of 20 hours and wireless transmission in a range of 60 meters, the RS 120-W is suitable for most users and homes. The base station is also a charging station for the headphones, which hang on the built-in stand when not in use.

A new Broadcast Mode can pair the base transmitter with multiple sets of headphones, so more than one person can listen to the TV. For those who like their TV loud, the volume of the RS-120 can go as high as 100dB, without having a negative impact on others in the room.

Pricing & Availability: ​The Sennheiser RS 120-W wireless headphones for TVs will be available for pre-order on August 16. The headphones will go on sale on 30th August for £119.99 / €129.90.
