The Sennheiser RS 120 wireless headphones are a budget RF alternative to the Kleer-based Sennheiser RS 160 (*Est. $200) headphones. Both professionals and users rate sound quality highly, and many like how easy it is to charge these headphones. Range is good, but walls weaken the signal quality. In reviews, the Sennheiser RS 120 headphones are said to be sensitive to interference from cordless and cell phones, and users complain of accidentally pressing the buttons when lying down. Users also say that the fit is too loose for activities like working in the garden while listening to music.

Steve Guttenberg is impressed with the sound quality of the Sennheiser RS 120 wireless headphones, though he notes noticeable static. He finds them lightweight and comfortable, and he likes the way the stand doubles as a charger. He says he's mildly annoyed by the button placement.

This brief review by former About.com guide Matthew Torres is sparse on words but manages to impart a great deal of information in the small space provided. Torres says that the audio quality of the Sennheiser RS 120 is excellent. He tests the 300 foot claimed range of the device and found that the signal strength weakened considerably the more walls you put between the headphones and the base unit. A few minor cons are listed, but they don't stop the RS 120 from receiving a 4.5 out of 5 star rating overall.
