Brilliant sound reproduction but exceedingly poor range

Summary: The claimed 80 metre range is ridiculous. I used to have a pair of Sennheiser headphones that worked on FM and I could get faithful reproduction walking out the house and over a block away. With these I can move around my flat and it can cut out after about 3 metres!
Summary: I chose these after looking at the specs. of several types and from different suppliers. These were the best value for money for the use that I needed. That is good quality closed type for late night movie listening, and best versitility.
Summary: Unaccustomed to writing reviews as I am,,, I will give a brief rundown of the sennheiser RS 170. I bought these through Amazon. I had to consider the price, how would they work through a PC and could I figure what cables and adapters would I need.
Summary: I have an entertainment centre which comprises a tv with wireless n lan, a blu-ray player with wireless n lan, a ps3 with with wireless n lan and bluetooth peripherals, a pc with wireless n lan and bluetooth peripherals each of which is connected by hdmi to the tv and then the RS170 is connected to...
Summary: These headphones are fantastic. The digital surround sound is far superior to the cinema sound from the speakers connected to my tv. and audio equipment. Clear and crisp sound. People have said in reviews that sometimes the sound dissappears, however if you point the charger to where you are you do...

Summary: I am profoundly deaf, without hearing aids I'm lost. Like so many people with hearing difficulties I keep buying headphones in the hope I shall at last be able to hear the TV or audio properly, only to be so often disappointed.
Summary: the sound quality when the headpones work is typical Sennheiser and good. the problem is it is just when they work. the transmitter is just 2m away and directly line of sight, yet frequently cuts out, if I walk just 10m away it is gone altogether.
Sennheiser RS 170 Closed Digital Wireless Headphone
27 October 2010
Summary: I was not sure whether to rate these 2 out of 5 or 3 out of 5; either way I was not as impressed as I thought that I was going to be. I previously had a set of HRD 130's which were RF headphone and not digital like these Sennheiser RS 170's but none the less the best advantage that the radio...
Summary: I had done quite a bit of research before ordering these and I agree with most of the people who bought this product, One needs to turn the volume fully up on the computer and down low on the phones to avoid a slight hiss, the only downside is finding the volume keys on one side of the phones while...
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.
