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!!
Summary: Instructions manual is on CD supplied, but you can also download it previously to receipt of headphones from Crutchfield on "Download owner's manual" or from Sennheiser website. Sound is great for wireless phones, works good around the house with minimal or no notable distortion. It takes a while to charge it the first time (+24 hours) but subsequent charges take less time (less than 8 hours). Lightweight headphones so you will not feel then. Bass and surround are great.
Excerpt: Originally got the DS6000 but had to return it because of interference with my wireless. Bought two. Use 1 tower as as transmitter for both. Keep it behind my TV. Use the other tower for charging both the headsets. The controls take a little getting used but definitely worth the price. Pros: 1. Absolutely no interference with my wireless routers and microwave's. 2. Easily add more multiple head sets. 3. Excellent sound. Cons: 1. Auto/off but no Auto/on. 2.
Excerpt: I first bought the SONY MDR-DS6000's to replace my Sennheiser RS130's ...one word about the Sony Headphones-Disappointed! These Sennheiser RS 170's reproduce sounds very clearly with powerful bass and have long range (the Sony's were cutting in/out at about 15 feet-despite what they claim.) This is my second pair of Sennheiser...I have not been disappointed. I'm sure you will agree!
Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Great Sound, Lightweight, Long Range Wireless, Stylish
Summary: Great headphones. Paired two to a tower without issue - about a week later they disassociated, but I have two little kids so who knows the culprit. Paired to other tower and now they work fine again. Only con: closed ear is not the best choice for those who need to monitor surroundings.
Summary: The first thing that I do when I get a new product is read the operation manual. This Sennheiser product doesn't have one. They include a CD instead. My PC wouldn't read the CD. Apparently this has something to do with auto start being disabled. I have never had this problem before. Manual starting of a DVD/CD is usually just a click. I found the manual online at Sennheiser's website.
Summary: I needed a new set of closed back, over the ear, wireless headphones when the headband on my ageing wireless Philips cans snapped after 8 years of sterling service. I've owned numerous Sennheiser headphones over the years and have always found them excellent, so I didn't have any qualms ordering these as a replacement. The headphones themselves are a very comfortable fit with excellent sound delivery, even with the dynamic bass and surround sound modes enabled.
It's simply Awesome.. Excellent sound quality and good range

Summary: I'm loving it.. It started working straight out of the box. Just because the manual said we need to charge for 16 hours before first use, I used Duracell batteries to test it out. It's simply Awesome.. Excellent sound quality and good range, I can move around in my house even across floors and still get connected to the signal.
Summary: i like wireless hedphones and these are ok, i preffered my rs 120s also bought from richersounds though. this is due to the fact i preffered the softer 120s cup and also the 120s turned off after a bit when sound signal lost ie tv turned off. the 170s stay on until battery dead and just flashes a green led. not my best buy but adequate.
