Summary: I purchased these when looking for a quality sounding wireless headphone set for my new game rig. I opted for a Audiophile experience rather than a 'gaming headset' Pros: The long battery life is outstanding, and is very immersive when playing games or watching movies. The ear cups are comfortable.
Pros: Amazing sound quality. No produced sound bleeds and no outside sound gets in when worn properly.
Cons: Plastic construction doesn't feel 100% sturdy. pops and creaks when flexed. Buttons can be easily mistaken
Conclusion: I purchased a Sennheiser RS 170 to help me hear better when I watch movies and television on my Sam Sung & Bose surround sound system. I listen with the head set and everyone else in the room can hear through the normal sound system....it works great!
Excerpt: The design on this unit leaves a lot to be desired. Replacing batteries is a bear. Difficult to get into the copartment. Secondly, the buttons on the side earpiece to adjust volume do not have a different feel or touch.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
Conclusion: My headphones just arrived today. First time for ordering from Sonic Electronix. Fast delivery. Took everything out of the box, hooked it up to my Toshiba 42" HD Flat screen. Connected everything, put batteries in headphones, turned transmitter on and Hallelujah, they work like a charm.
Summary: I'm disappointed in them, persistent interference or something noise in the background all the time. The noise is producible by changing channels with the remote, seems to have something to do with the picture changing on the screen, and it then continues with no remote activity nearly all the time,...
Pros: Good sound reproduction
Cons: Continual Interference noise and poor button design
Pros: Excellent Sound and very comfortable fit. Using it to listen to TV so I don't have to raise volume. Discovered the background music in many shows and movies to be excellent that could not hear normally. Excellent gift for someone with a hear disability.
Cons: The headset fits so comfortable and dampens external noise in the room. Can be a problem if someone is trying to get your attention - or maybe not. If this is a problem Sennheiser Silver RS 120 version not as comfortable or tight fitting but does a nice job - also RS 120 has a longer range.
Summary: My wife and I both use Sennheiser RS-160, RS-170 and RS-180 wireless headphones. I use the RS-160 in the shack with my transceivers. We both use the RS-170 and RS-180 for listening to old time radio shows every evening, allowing us to listen without interruption regardless of what we do or where we...
