Summary: The RS 170 is an excellent product. Used with a TV the speech is greatly improved and the music is very good. The unit is also very comfortable and of good quality. The only downside, as stated in some other reviews, is that the volume and mute buttons are impossible to use without removing the...
Pros: Excellent product.
Cons: Controls difficult to use without removing the headphones.
Cons: The controls are not easy to find, The on/off is between the volume up and volume down buttons, It has nothing to identify it - like a lump - so you frequently turn them off by accident, Pity a little thought or testing the problems would be solved!
Summary: I am hard of hearing and i purchased wireless headphones to help me hear speech on my TV. These headphones are the second pair I have purcheaed, the first ones were the 120, they worked well enough but brok in 6 months.
Pros: Excellent sound quality these makes it easy to understand recorded voices, ease of use, very comfortable fit, excellent range.
Cons: Very cheap plastic construction. Easy to snap off (break) the earphone when adjusting. Awkward placement of controls on the earpiece, you have to remove headphones completely to make adjustments to the sound output.
Excerpt: I use to listen to my home theater where the sound does not come in my house. Another great use is able to give privacy to any other person can hear a sound, without disturbing other people and the sound is of excellent quality.
Pros: Comfortable, Good Battery, Good Reception, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Summary: I have been using these for a little over a year now. I bought them to replace my 900 mhz headset, which I was very happy with for many years. I agree with all the comments on having to take headset off to press buttons.
Pros: Comfort, charging, distance
Cons: speaker quality, operating buttons while wearing
Summary: Absolutely wonderful. Gift for my husband who doesn't hear very well and was always missing what was being said during a movie or tv program. I'm a grateful wife who hears very well and is now never asked what was said and winds up missing parts of the program to explain to my husband what he...
Pros: Husband can turn sound up as loud as he wants and I can't hear a thing from the earphones. I can now have the tv at a reasonable sound to suit me.
Summary: I reviewed many wireless sets of headphones from $100 to $600. I thought I would give the Sennheiser RS 170 a chance. After all I could send them back if I didn't like them. My wife goes to bed early so I thought I would used the headphones then. Well, I wear them all the time.
Pros: Excellent sound reproduction Great reception range Excellent Bass and Surround Very comfortable even on extended wearing of headphones
Cons: The only improvement I would like is better tactical feel for the side buttons.
Excerpt: Easy to set-Up. First turn the volume all the way down on Headphones, then turn UP the volume on your Amp or the device the headphones are connected to, this will eliminate any static/hum or drops from receiver. The sound is great any they work very well.
Pros: Easy to set-up, Good interface, Reliable Reception, Strong Construction
