Sennheiser RS 160 Wireless (KLEER) for $100 w/FS [limit 5]

UPDATE: it has now been price-matched by Amazon actual (limit up to three per customer)…

A bit of a doorbuster! Authorized Sennheiser dealer B&H Photo has launched a limited time offer on the new condition Sennheiser RS 160 digital wireless for $100 with free expedited shipping with up to five pairs per customer at the sale price!

These are previous generation model, and use KLEER technology, which Sennheiser is not using for their latest generation RS*5 models. So if you are a fan of KLEER. From what I recall, the RS 160 is the lowest priced model in their previous RS-lineup to have KLEER. The ones below (eg RS 120) did not have KLEER.

This is a system, you have a transmitter/base and a headset. They work together. They are not intended to be used separately. You can pair additional headsets to one transmitter/base, so more than one person can listen to the same music/video.
