The Good Wireless headphones; SRS surround processing; base/stand recharges batteries; extra battery included; built-in volume control.

The Bad Pricey; sound isn't nearly as detailed as that of Sennheiser's corded 'phones.

The Bottom Line These extremely lightweight wireless headphones are easy on the ears but sound a little too mellow for our taste.

Sennheiser's RS65 wireless headphones ($210) are the perfect late-night audio companion, allowing you to crank CDs and DVDs as loud as you want without tying yourself to a cable. But the mellow RS65s will disappoint finicky listeners who crave aggressive, detailed sound.
