Good sound but be wary

Charley, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: First of all, the sound is great. This is a good unit for a single user. However, getting 2 sets to synch at the same time is often difficult. Additionally, the headset becomes uncomfortable and hot when in prolonged use.

  • Summary: These are enjoyable headphones as the surround really envelopes and clarity shines. Overall sound lacks a little richness, highs are overpowering. Nice punchy bass, not too much. After 1.5 to 2 hours they are fatiguing as most wireless headsets are. They are very light weight and comfortable.
  • Pros: Surround and Bass Boost
  • Cons: fatiguing, short range

  • Summary: I'm using these to listen to our TV; they are connected to the headphone out.   I bought them to replace my failed Sony MDR-RF4000K, but I'm not too sure if it was worth it. Compared to Sony, I can't really say there is *any* improvement, maybe only when playing GT5 - Sony had a very weird problem...
  • Pros: Sound fairly decent
  • Cons: Cut out when input volume is low; cups are too shallow for my ears, manual switch on

RS-170 Sound Great but with Some Limitations

LR, Crutchfield
6 March 2011
  • 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.

Excellent Sound

Joe L, Crutchfield

  • Summary: I am a little hard-of-hearing; the headphones solved all my problems with that. Great sound quality. The wireless feature allows me to move around the house [even into the basement] with no loss of sound quality. When watching television, I use them all of the time.

Really nice and clear

  • Summary: WOW! The sound is amazing! I had no idea of what I was missing. The clarity and detail the RS 170's provide is awesome! I can hear every detail from music and TV programs. The wireless works well as there is absolutely zero hiss or humming.

Works well But

Wilson L, Crutchfield
13 February 2011
  • 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.
  • Pros: Nice when it starts working
  • Cons: Being as this is my third such unit makes me wonder about quality

Wow!

  • Summary: Just purchased these wireless headphones for use with TV, not ham radio. They replace Radio Shack wireless headphones which stopped working and fell apart. (And were VERY uncomfortable). The RS-170 is a QUALITY product and works as advertised.

Great for Workouts

Bill R, Crutchfield
9 February 2011
  • Summary: I bought these headphones to replace an old pair of headphones that I use when working out in the morning. For this, the ear cups are a plus, it helps block out the noise of the exercise equipment.
