Sennheiser RS 170

Steve, Crutchfield
26 June 2012
  • 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. The bass and surround sound is beyond excellent. Comfort, style, and range are too. This is the first Sennheiser product I have bought and I'm very happy.
  • 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.

  • Summary: I will be returning the RS-170s. We had trouble syncing with receiver and TV. When we did get the units syncd we had busy/high pitched noise
  • Cons: No advantage over our wired headphones (had to run wire from TV or receiver (not worth it). Had trouble syncing units (repeatedly)

RS-170 Sound Great but with Some Limitations

LR, Crutchfield
14 April 2012
  • Summary: So far they have performed flawlessly and it wasn't to difficult to get two sets of headphones to sync to the transmitter. The big test is yet to come, when we move them into the RV for the trip to Kansas Speedway and the NASCAR race.
  • Pros: Sounds good and I think the Bass Boost and the Surround added that extra touch.
  • Cons: The Power and Volume switches do leave something to be desired. Like others have stated, you almost need to take them off to make sure you are pushing the right buttons.

I'll buy one more

  • 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. P2 may lack an entry in order to use the excellent headphones listening to my ipod.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Good Battery, Good Reception, Lightweight, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Poor Interface

Works well But

Wilson L, Crutchfield
29 January 2012
  • Summary: This is my third try with this unit. The first failed in the stereo mode sound just dropped out, second unit sound dropped out on one side. This unit so far has worked well except that I am experiencing a cutting out when it is first powered up as though it were going through a seeking mode. I'm hoping the unit continues to work.
  • Pros: Nice when it starts working
  • Cons: Being as this is my third such unit makes me wonder about quality

Class-leading wireless sound with just a few limitations

Ed, Crutchfield
28 January 2012
  • Summary: I've been using the Sennheiser RS 170 wireless headphones for over 18 months now, and while it took me a short while to fall in love with them, today they're the home theater accessory that I simply cannot live without. They provide clean, enveloping sound when listening to music or movies, with wire-free convenience to boot! The quality of the RS 170's wireless signal needs to be heard to be believed.
  • Pros: - Outstanding sound quality - Clean wireless signal - Great range (over 75 feet indoors) - Good battery longevity with convenient recharging
  • Cons: - Limited connectivity options - Bass boost muddies sound quality - Surround sound feature not particularly effective - No native surround decoding (DD or DTS)

Excellent wireless headphones

  • Summary: These wireless headphones are very comfortable and have excellent sound quality. I use them for watching TV while my significant other reads in the same room.

  • Pros: Excellent sound Quality , including surround sound!
  • Cons: None so far.

A little uncomfortable

Flys4Fun, B&H Photo
8 January 2012
  • 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. I bought these to listen to the TV afere my wife went to bed or before anyone was up in the morning. I found the headphones uncomfortable to wear after about 20 minutes or less, heavy and tight.
  • Pros: Easy to set-up, Good interface, Reliable Reception, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Uncomfortable in time
