Excerpt: Excellent wireless headphones for many uses. CAN be used with RS-160/170/180 transmitters as a second headset (up to four can be paired per transmitter) and we use these daily for many uses. Music, old time radio, ham radaio, and TV. My wife has a hearing deficit in one ear (30% reduction) and she uses these Sennheiser wireless headsets all the time to hear the TV, to hear the stereo, and to play old time radio programs off the computer and internet.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
Summary: Our family is pleased with this wireless headphone purchase. We live in an apartment complex. We have a total of two wireless headphones (also have the Sennheiser RS 170 charging system) so that we don't disturb the neighbors. Originally, my wife and I thought we would use these primarily when our kids went to bed. But our kids (teens) use them more than we do and love them! Bonus: my wife and I can hold a conversation without competing with the TV!
Pros: - Great sound while blocking out surrounding environmental noise(s) NOTE: while these are not noise canceling, they do a very good job at keeping outside noise to a minimum. - Very comfortable for 30-to-60 minute stretches. Can get a little warm around the ears after prolonged use (normal for this type of headphone) - Harmony One remote can mute headphone(s) -- no fumbling for mute button on side of headphone
Cons: - Control buttons on side of headphone are peculiar. Not a deal breaker. Just weird. Need to get used to the buttons. - When turning multiple headphones on after having them off, you must reconnect/sync them to the transmitter one-at-a-time. Takes about a minute to do so. Need to do this because A) only way to have multiple headphones to work with RS 170 system (up to 4 headphones) and B) only way to have independent volume controls for each headset.
Summary: Love the sound but when ordered another so partner could share good sound it won't pair to the tower. Crutchfield determined it was the headphone and sent me another but it won't pair with the tower either. Both work but not together. Have tried instructions on page 26 of manual and have gotten no results. Good chance it's the operator but can't figure it out.
Pros: Great sound and works well for hearing impaired
Summary: Bought this as the extra set for RS 170. -- it works perfectly. For the first time in months we can both enjoy the same programme, but listen to it at our own preferred volume,. Added feature of surround sound is a huge plus.
Summary: Got the RS170 and after just one day my girlfriend asked me to get her a pair as well. They work perfectly for us. These headphones are comfortable and block out almost all external noise when watching the tv. World Cup in surround sound without the distractions of the world outside.
