SENNHEISER Headphone  RS220







































































General Description

If today's high definition A/V components are a high-performance exotic sports car, the RS 220 is the driver.

Audiophiles have long asked when the audio quality of the legendary HD 600 series (HD 600 and HD 650) could be ported to a wireless format. Utilizing powerful developments in wireless audio transmission, the RS 220 bridges the gap between wireless and wired headphones via DSSS.

The transmitter/charging dock features digital inputs in optical (Toslink) and coaxial formats. Analog RCA inputs with input-gain control round out a versatile interconnect panel. Each input is duplicated into an output, allowing you to feed other audio components within your system (also known as daisy-chaining).

The headphones (receiver) feature a max line-of-sight range up to 300 feet (expect 30 to 100 ft in common listening environments, depending on your RF and room environment) and are engineered for outstanding performance in your home theater or listening room. A coax cable is included for connection to your music sources.

You have spent countless hours building your hi-fi system with painstaking attention to detail. The new RS 220 is prepared to take that entertainment to new places.
