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. I have it set up so that I can listen to the news or morning shows as I work out, and I turn the TV volume down so I don't disturb others in the house - plus the ear cups don't block all of the sound, so it's odd to hear the sound in the background also.

Just what we needed

Bob/Carol, Crutchfield
24 January 2011
  • Summary: We are both hearing inpaired (hearing aids). We watch a lot ot movies and sometimes the speech is over taken by other parts of the sound track. We purchased 2 RS170s. One transmitter is connected to our LR Samsung, the other to our BR Samsung. We move between the two locations & the headsets sync right to the transmitter. Problem solved. Thanks Crutchfeild!!

Great 'phones, wireless or not

Billy T., B&H Photo
13 January 2011
  • Excerpt: These wireless headphones sound better than any corded set I own, with the exception of my ancient Koss electrostatics, which are so heavy they should come with a neck brace. The Sennheisers on the other hand are so light and comfortable that I can wear them for hours. Excellent isolation from ambient sound. The "surround" feature is worthwhile. It takes the music out of the middle of my head (a typical stereo headphone effect) and relocates it pleasingly.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Easy To Configure, Great sound, Lightweight
  • Cons: Expensive

Good Wireless Headset, BUT...

Sean A., Newegg

  • Summary: When you hang up the headphones on the charging cradle one would think that it should power off the unit and the base. Unfortunately, the base and the headphones stay powered up during charging, which to me seems pointless.
  • Pros: Comfortable on the Head, Adjustable Headset, Great Sound, Decent Wireless Range, Effective Bass Boost.
  • Cons: Overpriced! Not worth the going rate...

Best headphones

  • Excerpt: These have lived up to all the reviews and research that I did. I chose them over the Pioneers and the Sonys- great quality- sounds like surround sound.

I would but this again

Siskokid, B&H Photo
23 December 2010
  • Excerpt: I use the product primarily for TV viewing in bed in order to not disturb my wife. I also found myself using them for more music listening. I find them very comfortable and light. It's quite fun to be able to walk to the kitchen from the living room and not miss a beat...literally. My only gripe is that the buttons on the headphones are too close together and that you may accidently turn them off during listening. Otherwise great product.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Easy To Configure, Lightweight
  • Cons: Control buttons to small

Good and Bad

Barrett K., Newegg
22 December 2010
  • Summary: In utter frustration I eventually cut and glued chunks of rubber to the Volume + and Volume - buttons. It looks totally hack but it's now easy to find and control the volume while wearing the headphones (and the on/off button since the volume buttons give me an easily findable reference point).
  • Pros: I upgraded from a Sennheiser HDR 130, an open back design. A definite improvement in background noise, Max volume is less than the HDR 130 but adequate, would be convenient to have more gain range to make up for low level material.
  • Cons: The user interface is just total junk.

FANTASTIC

Anonymous, Newegg
8 December 2010
  • Summary: I REPLACED SENNHEISER RS120s with is Unit. These Headphones are far superior in almost every way except coverage. The RS120s bugged me to no end with the static and unconfortable fit. I wear glasses and the RS 120s would dig in painfully over my glasses. The RS120s would fall off my head if I leaned over to pickup something. The RS170s fixed all of these problems.
  • Pros: EASY TO CONNECT-10
  • Cons: BUTTONS ARE USELESS WHILE WEARING THE HEADPHONES. A RE-DESIGN IS NEEDED.
