Pros: Extremely clear and easy to hook up. My father who has only one eardrum with about 60% hearing in the one ear can listen to most tv shows and understand all that was said. It pretty much comes ready to used in any country with the different power adapters.
Summary: Agree with other reviews about button location and lack of raised indicators. I kept turning them off when I was trying to turn the volume down because the power button is located between volume up and down. I just took them off to adjust. I'm sure I'll master it soon enough.
Pros: Overnight Delivery by Newegg - Thank you! 5 Eggs for that.
Cons: Very Comfortable, but a little large for my head. Might be designed more for men?
Excerpt: I've been using this wireless headphone for music and watching movies. And I should say this by far is the best wireless set I've owned. I had the RS 140 but I felt it is lacking in the low range. While the rs170's base isn't as heavy as I'd like, but you can definitely hear it compare to the RS140...it makes watching movies, especially action ones so much more alive! I'm glad I actually replace my old headphones. Hope this help those who are planning to upgrade.
Summary: I live in an apartment complex, so I cant really crank up the volume watching action movies or playing video games, but with these guys I can, and I honestly don't feel like I'm losing anything by using these vs my 5.1 setup.
Pros: Great sound quality and amazing surround sound emulation
Cons: Price, Not as comfortable after 3+ hours of use
Summary: I use these for night time TV viewing so as not to wake my wife. After using the RF Sennheiser for a number of years, I was ready for a digital pair. These are superb! Sound Quality and Features were important and these do the 'job'.
Pros: Very clean signal, excellent sound quality and some nice features.
Cons: Pricey but hopefully they'll last longer than the RF ones.
Summary: I've tried the Sony's, the RocketFish (stay away from those. Simply TERRIBLE), and these are awesome! I've ready many reviews that said that the bass was not that deep. I disagree. The bass is very punchy and deep. The range is very good and sound is very true to life. I listen to all types of music, but use them the most for movies, and they are incredible. These are the first that have no noise, and no drop out.
Pros: Sound Quality, Big Bass, No drop out, long battery
Cons: Too big to lay on your side with them in bed.
Summary: These headphones really are superb in all respects. I've owned many pairs of headphones, including several pairs of Sennheizers, over the years and these are the best I've ever used. Superb sound, crisp clean definition, excellent seperation. Very simple set up - plug and play... I purchased the model with the vinyl ear muffs instead of the cloth /velvet muffs intentionally because they less expensive, softer on the ear and offer better sound isolation - no regrets.
Pros: The sound is incredible; it just doesn't get ANY better than this...really. These rock!
Summary: I have used Sony wireless headphones in the past and settled for the hissing and interference because I thought that was as good as wireless got. When the interference got too bad, I decided to shop for new wireless headphones. Recently I have tried 3 different brands, including a newer model of Sony wireless headphones. None of those even come close to the quality of these. The Sennheiser 170 wireless headphones are awesome!
Pros: excellent sound, comfort, charging cradle, options, long operating time per charge, easy setup
Cons: no printed manual-only CD, quick-start guide is pictorial guide only
