  • Excerpt: I use the RS 170's to watch T.V. late night without disturbing anyone in the house sleeping. The RS 170 is well made and the ear pads are soft and comfortable for wearing for several hours. they have a surround sound and bass boost buttons as well as volume. I've only listened to music once so far (one of the T.V sat. stations) but sound was good. comes with the new standard 3.5 plugin with an adapter for old 1/4 stereo plug and red/white adaptor.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Easy To Use

  • Excerpt: Here's the thing.........sound great when you have them on.........battery lasts a while...... only draw back is LG TV is not able to send sound to headphones and TV speakers at the same time.... Plug in headphones and they mute TV...Tv issue not head phones. Love them so far....Oh and thanks to my loving wife for the Fathers Day gift.. Now I can enjoy Horror movies while she's in bed sleeping at a loud volume!!
  • Pros: Comfortable, Compact Design, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality

PERFECT FOR MY NEEDS

  • Excerpt: I needed headphones to use with my TV so I could listen to it during the night and early morning, at the same time muting the TV sound, so the lady in the upstairs condo would not be bothered by the TV. Before buying this set, I had bought 3 others in town, all around $100-130. They all had problems like static, buzzing, and cutting off. It became obvious to me that I would have to pay more. This Sennheiser 170 has been ideal.
  • Pros: Added features, Comfortable, Compact Design, Easy Hook Up, Easy Set up, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality

  • Summary: Just what I had hoped for. I can listen to movies and shows that have loud bass and not have to jump for the remote to turn the sound down. I don't have to wear hearing aides to hear the dialogue!
  • Pros: Easy to set up and use. I can sit 20 ft. away in the den and not miss a sound.I can even go to the kichen for a refill and still hear what's going on.
  • Cons: none
