Connect the included wireless transmitter to your TV or stereo's optical digital or analog output, put the headphones on, and listen. Roam around the room freely and control your own volume. You'll enjoy sound tailored to your own ears.

Plush padding and earcup buttons for easy control

Comfort is important when choosing any headphones, but especially those used for extended listening sessions. The RS 195's headset features thick padding on the headband and earcups, so you can enjoy its crystal-clear sound for long periods. If you need to adjust the volume, don't worry — you won't need to get up or mess with the TV remote. There are built-in volume buttons on the right earcup, along with a button to scroll through the different listening modes.

Features

Overview: The Sennheiser RS 195 Digital Wireless headphone system consists of a pair of wireless headphones (HDR 195) and a radio frequency (RF) transmitter (TR 195). The system is designed to enhance the sound of your TV or your home audio source, and to give you the freedom to walk around your home with the headphones on.

Wireless Headphones: The HDR 195's wireless headphones feature a circum-aural (around-the-ear), closed design to significantly reduce background noise. The soft-padded ear cups and headband provide hours of listening comfort. The headphones have controls on the right ear cup: power on/off, volume up, volume down, and mode. With the batteries installed, the HDR 195 headphones weigh approximately 12 ounces.

TR 195 Transmitter: The transmitter connects to your television's or audio system's audio output via the included 3.5mm cable or optical digital cable (supports 2ch PCM only). You can switch between the two inputs with a provided toggle switch. The audio is transmitted on the 2.4 GHz band (2.40 to 2.48 GHz) with 8-FSK Digital modulation. The extended transmission range is approximately 328 feet (100 meters) without obstructions. (Typical performance with obstructions will be somewhat less.) The transmitter is powered by a 9-volt DC power supply/AC adapter. Adapter plugs for the US, Europe, UK, and Australia are provided, allowing for use in other countries. The transmitter doubles as a convenient charging cradle for the headphones. Transmitter dimensions: 4.96"W x 9.264"H x 3.96"D.

Listening Modes: The RS 195's transmitter features three listening modes for tailoring the sound to your individual preferences. By pressing the Mode button on the transmitter or the right ear cup on the headphones, you can select Normal, Speech (for clearer dialogues), or Music (for increased dynamic range for music).

Personal Hearing: The RS 195 wireless headphone system can be used to enhance your hearing. The Personal Hearing feature offers seven hearing profiles, each with different sound optimizations and hearing profiles. You can select the profile that works best for your personal hearing experience, using the rotary dial on the front of the transmitter (marked A through G), or pressing the Mode button on the headphone's right ear cup.

Balance Control: The left/right audio balance can be adjusted by turning the rotary balance control on the front of the transmitter.

Rechargeable Batteries: The headphones are powered by the two included "AAA" rechargeable NiMH batteries (1.2V, 820mAh). The batteries fully charge in approximately 8.5 hours, when placed on the top of the transmitter. Battery life is approximately 18 hours of use. Standard, non-rechargeable "AAA" batteries may be used in the headphones, but the headphones must not be placed on the charging cradle.

Auto Power Off: If there is no signal from the transmitter for more than 5 minutes, the headphones automatically switch to standby mode. If the headphones are outside the transmission range or switched to off for more than 5 minutes, the transmitter automatically switches to standby mode.

Specifications:

  • Frequency Response: 17Hz - 22kHz
  • Maximum Sound Pressure Level: 117dB at 1kHz, 3% THD
  • Total Harmonic Distortion: <0.5% at 1 kHz, 100dB SPL
  • Transmission Range: Up to 100m (328')

Why did you buy this?

poor hearing. [ LEONARD  Jul 30, 2018 ]
YOUR PRICE [ BRUCE  Dec 14, 2017 ]
After testing my neighbor's Sennheiser RS 185, I was sold on the product. I chose the upgrade to the 195 and haven't looked back. Just darn fine prices on quality merchandise. [ GARY  Aug 26, 2017 ]
Better sound quality, options for listening modes, optical input and closed back design [ David  Jul 19, 2017 ]
Online Reviews [ Ron  Apr 22, 2017 ]
My spouse has developed a high frequency hearing loss over time. Headphones are helpful for her so the volume doesn't need to be overly loud on the surround sound system. She's very happy with this solution and so am I! This particular headphone is really designed with this type of application in mind and does it very well. [ Robert Gregory  Jan 25, 2017 ]
Recommended by my son-in-law who researches everything :) [ Jody Riggs  Jun 01, 2016 ]
sound quality [ John  Dec 22, 2015 ]
I wanted to compare with the RS 175. I have hearing loss and wear top of the line hearing aids. The hearing aids work perfectly in a conversational situation.; but I cannot understand a single word on the TV (turning up the volume does not help in any way). After 1year of avoiding being in any room with the TV on; I am ready to solve my situation. I have done extensive online research. I am confident that the RS 195 or the RS 175 will be a perfect solution. [ Karen  Dec 07, 2015 ]
