Sennheiser RS 170

16 April 2014
  • Conclusion: The Sennheiser RS 170 is a close cousin of the highly rated Sennheiser RS 180 (Est. $245). Both headphones use Sennheiser's Kleer wireless technology, which boosts clarity and reduces interference from other wireless devices. One difference between the two is the RS 170's closed-back design.
  • Pros: Excellent sound quality, Comfortable, solid build, Great wireless range, Good passive noise reduction
  • Cons: Fiddly controls, Surround sound is unimpressive

  • Excerpt: You may be wondering what a gaming website would be doing reviewing a non gaming headset but there is a method to our madness. For many years now Sony and Microsoft have not only produced two great consoles but also marketed them as not only gaming consoles but multi media hubs.

  • Summary: I'm using these to listen to our TV; they are connected to the headphone out. I bought them to replace my failed Sony MDR-RF4000K, but I'm not too sure if it was worth it. Compared to Sony, I can't really say there is *any* improvement, maybe only when playing GT5 - Sony had a very weird problem...
  • Pros: Sound fairly decent
  • Cons: Cut out when input volume is low; cups are too shallow for my ears, manual switch on

  • Summary: These are enjoyable headphones as the surround really envelopes and clarity shines. Overall sound lacks a little richness, highs are overpowering. Nice punchy bass, not too much. After 1.5 to 2 hours they are fatiguing as most wireless headsets are. They are very light weight and comfortable.
  • Pros: Surround and Bass Boost
  • Cons: fatiguing, short range
