Sennheiser is touting their new RS 220 ($600) Wireless headphones as playing in the same league as their Sennheiser HD 600 series wired headphones – which themselves are considered industry standard in entry to mid-level audiophile headphones. The idea that a wireless headphone such as the RS 220 could compete on this level is a high step forward in technology itself. The drive inside the Rs220 is actually the same driver in the HD650. That in itself is big, big news.
The conversation regarding the Sennheiser RS 220 v. Sennheiser HD 600 has already begun on the fanatic forums. We ourselves are desperately awaiting a review pair to compare to our own set of HD 650, just one small step up from the 600. The RS220 comes priced at around $600, just about $250-$275 more than the wired HD600. If they can indeed pull off the high end sound of their wired brothers, the RS220 may be this year’s headphone game changer.
For an excellent Sennheiser wireless headphone for half the money, consider the Sennheiser RS 180.
