Sennheiser RS 130 Wireless Surround Sound Headphones
The Sennheiser RS 130 are cost effective and high quality wireless headphones that feature surround sound.
Wireless headphones free the user from watching a film or listening to music in restricted proximity with the audio or video source. These headphones do away with the restrictions of cables and enable users to move around the home or office while listening to music.
Wireless headphones do not plug directly into an audio or video source, rather they communicate through infrared or radio signals to a central base station. This central base station is what connects to the audio or video source such as a stereo or CD player manually or via Bluetooth protocol.
Wireless headphones receive signals from this base station which usually holds the headphones while they are charging the reusable batteries. Some wireless headphones work through infrared signals which have a limited range from which you can stray from the base station (usually not more than thirty feet).
Other wireless headphones make use of radio waves in which both the base station and headphones are set to a few channels between certain frequencies that do not disturb regular radio broadcast.
The radio-type wireless headphones have a wider range (up to three hundred feet) with signals of about 2.4GHz which can communicate through walls and ceilings. Any listening device that does not make use of cables can be referred to as a wireless headphone.
There are different wireless headphones available and choosing one depends on the features that are most important to you.
