    Great sound quality but the buttons on the headset are very difficult (virtually impossible) to use. In addition, the buttons on the control button can't be pressed with one hand - must use one hand to hold the base while the other presses the button. Anyone involved in approving the ergonomics for this device should be fired. A real shame.

    • Terrible ergonomics.

  • SENNHEISER TR 170 CHARGING LIGHT ALWAYS ON

    Charging Unit LED Indicator (orange lit) of Sennheiser RS 170 is always on eventhough I've charged the included batteries (GP, 600 mAH)for more than 2 days now (>48 hours). As per manual, you can charged only for 16 hours (first time)and charging light indicator will go off once its fully charged. I tried to change the batteries with Energizer NimH, 850 mAH, and the problem is still there. Does anybody who owns this model have the same problem I'm experiencing?

    Hi, I have the same problem with new RS 180, 36 hrs and still light is on. Have you solved the problem anyhow ?

    Answered by KenN0898 2011-02-14:
