The Good Wireless headphones; lightweight and extremely comfy; excellent sound quality; transmitter base doubles as a battery charger; built-in volume control.

The Bad Noise and hiss sometimes intrude on the sound; volume and tuning controls are too close together.

The Bottom Line Sennheiser's affordable, comfortable wireless headphones sound almost as good as corded 'phones.

Sennheiser's latest RF wireless-headphone set is that rare midrange model that outperforms its pricier sibling. The RS120s ($110, with a two-year warranty) look hip and offer home-theater and music performance that's considerably better than that of Sennheiser's more expensive RS65s . Were it not for the occasional interference, we'd think we were listening to corded headphones.
