    Which connection to use with Sennheiser RS220 headphones and ASUS Xonar Essence STX sound card?

    I recently got the Sennheiser RS220 to go with my ASUS Xonar Essence STX sound card. They each have several connecting options and I was wondering which I should use. I mainly use the headphones for blu-ray movies and Dishonline/Netflix programming.   The Sennheiser RS220 has the following...

    Sennheiser RS220 headphones question

    Hi,   I recently bought the Sennheiser RS220 wireless headphones. As I'm using them with my onboard laptop sound card (with a Toslink to S/PDIF cable), I'm wondering if the sound quality could be somehow improved by adding a good external USB sound card (thinking for example of Asus Xonar...

    Integrated DAC for digital input headphones

    I would consider myself a newbie to audio, and this has been bothering me after poor and dead cables. I started browsing around here to look for a USB Audio card to integrate into my cans and had to ask this.   Microchips and components are getting cheaper and cheaper. Can someone explain to...

    Are wireless headphones the future?

    Last night on the ABC show Shark Tank, a guy appeared with a product where you design clothing into pockets that can carry all kinds of devices, route wires etc etc. The part I found very interesting came from Mark Cuban. He pretty much thinks the future is going to be all about wireless...

    WIFI headphones, or digital wireless radio? (*Not* RF Wireless)

    Wireless headphones are great, as long as you're sitting next to the receiver. Kind of ruins the point, right? '     If you move away, the signal degrades because you're using a traditional radio frequency broadcast, like an FM radio. (Not exactly, but it's an okay analogy for now).  ...

    Wireless Headphone/Headset for Gaming/Music Suggestions

    Hello there everyone, I am by no means a audiophile expert at all when it comes to highs, mids, lows etc.  However, I do enjoy a very good quality headset/phone.  My current headset is the Sennheiser PC360s, and after owning these I have become very fond to Sennheiser's sound quality.  ...

    Oval shaped vs round shaped ear cups

    Which one do you prefer? Which one is technically better for the sound?   My Senn HD 650 and RS 220 are oval shaped and I almost do not need to move it after it fits well. AKG K712 is almost round. I do have the space to move then back or forth and perceive different sounds. Sometimes I like...

    Sennheiser wireless RS 220 and how to best use it

    I got Sennheiser RS 220 wireless can. Man, I love it. I can't tell much difference between it and HD 650 so far. I don't think it can match HD 650 but it sounds great. I especially like it with piano music. It did not get stellar review because many people complain it drop signal and some even...

    I'd like to use my Sennheiser Wireless RS220 Headphones (they have analog and digital inputs) with my Onkyo TX-NR929 receiver, but also keep the sound coming out from the speakers at the same time.   Headphone sound would ideally be the Center Channel, or could be stereo or mixed monaural, if...

    Sennheiser RS 220 - Not in stock anywhere

    I live in NYC and generally assume that flagship products will be available for sale somewhere in the area. The RS 220 is not in stock at any store that I can find. Is that as strange as I think it is?

    Sennheiser RS 220 Vs Sennheiser HD600 / HD650?

    Apparently the RS 220 (which is a high-end wireless headphone) sounds like a well driven HD600?   Does that mean it lacks the powerful bass of the HD650?   Has anyone got it and can compare the RS 220 to the HD650?

    HD 600 (or 650), or RS 220?

    Hey guys.  For my first setup approaching high-end, I've been considering the Senn HD600s (or possibly the 650s), in tandem with a decent amp, most likely the Schiit Valhalla, or possibly the Asgard.  However, since learning about the new RS 220s, I've been wondering if I should hold out and...
