Summary: Had these for a while now and can therefore pass judgement. First of all, the construction seems to be very well done. Ear pads are a bit small but relatively comfortable as long as your movie is under two hours, they can get sore after prolonged use.
Summary: I am extremely impressed with the sound quality and battery life of these most excellent headphones. I bought these headphones to enable me to enjoy late night movies, without disturbing the flat above.
Summary: I recently bought these and they are miles better than the cheaper version, which are not as comfortable, do not sit on the stand or re-charge. Treat yourself - these really are worth the extra cost. Also I am useless with technology and they were really easy to set up.
Summary: I bought a set of these for my PS3 sessions where the other half gets a bit fed up with the volume, wanted good headphones without the hassle of a cable dangling across the room between the TV and myself, so after looking around at reviews and prices decided to give these a bash.

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: For some time I've noticed that I'm increasingly finding it difficult to hear the dialogue over the background music in films and after much deliberation decided to buy a pair of Sennheiser 170's after having read a number of reviews on here.
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...
