Summary: Bought 30/06/2010. Delivery time as promised by Amazon. User's Manual + Quick Guide + Instruction manual on CD. Easy setup. Excellent quality. Would recommend to anyone with a hearing problem.
Summary: Promptly delivered next day, as per usual from Amazon and the Marketplace. The headphones are a case of plug in and go! No setting up and always work when switched on. Sound is crystal clear and extremely rich. The communication technology between the base and headphones does not compress the signal, hence no loss of quality unlike ALL other wireless headphones on the market. Comfortable to wear for extended periods. Pricey but well worth the investment.
Brilliant way to listen to TV all over the house and not disturb others

Summary: These headphones are great and do just what I needed them to. I live in a flat which is relatively small but has thick walls and I have never had any problem receiving crystal clear audio any where in the home. For long sessions listening I started to find them a little uncomfortable after an hour or so initially but perhaps that was me just getting used to them as now a month or so in, I feel perfectly comfortable wearing them at least that long.
Summary: I've been using a pair of AKG pro phones for probably 30 years now and finally decided to change so that I can watch TV while the wife is in bed without having to sit in the only seat in range of the cable. I looked at lots of reviews, some strange eg "I can't wear my headphones while I have guests because there's a delay which creates an echo if the speakers are on" - why? and some quite informative.
Summary: Just so the first part of the review isn't negative, I'll write it in reverse. I love them. I've been using them mainly for music (prog-rock/rock/pop/dance/rap/rnb... varied taste ;) ). They're very light and comfortable on the head, the sound is well defined across the spectrum, although they have virtually no response below 40Hz.
Summary: - Ideal for home cinema or home listening. - Flawless digital sound worthy of high end phones. - The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because it gets a bit "sweaty 2 and hot around the ears after a period of time. If your looking wireless headphones you wont get better. The rs180 might solve the sweaty issue but is quite a bit more $.
Sennheisser RS 170 Closed Digital Wireless Headphones
M. Seath, Amazon
14 March 2010
Summary: As a long term Sennheiser fan I tried these 'phones for myself, after some lengthy research, and can confirm that they are excellent. As soon as I started listening to a film using the surround setting I was hooked, and yes I "listened" to the film. I have a fair home cinema system but these 'phones beat the speakers.
Summary: I've had the RS130's and were very good But i bought The 170's and ...wow! Crystal clear sound no hiss at all The only gripe is that the buttons on the headset are tiny and sooooo close together why were they designed like this? I have slim fingers and can cope, but anyone with fatter fingers will struggle It'll take some getting use to, but the performance of these headphones far outway a minor niggle
Problemlösungen, Tips und Tricks zum Sennheiser RS 170
2 weeks ago
Summary: Ich möchte mich hier nicht über den sagenhaften Klang, Komfort usw. des Kopfhörers auslassen. Das haben schon genügend andere vor mir getan. Hiermit möchte ich all denjenigen Tips geben die nicht so ganz zu 100% mit dem Kopfhörer zufrieden sind. Das Problem: ----------------- Die Kopfhörer stören den Wlan-Betrieb in unmittelbarer Nähe.
Summary: Ich habe mehrere Kopfhörer ausprobiert und dieser war der Beste. Als Vergleichsprodukte hatte ich den Sony MDRDS6500, Philips SHD9200 und den Sony MDR-RF810RK. Der Sony MDRDS6500 ist preislich, sowie Leistungsmäßig annähernd gleich, nur der Surroundsound hat mir beim Sennheiser besser gefallen. Die Passform ist hervorragend, hier sind aber der Sony MDRDS6500 und der Philips SHD9200 auch sehr gut.
