Excerpt: I am really impressed with these headphones, they are great for watching movies and have made my late night movie watching a lot more enjoyable now that I can have the volume at a decent level. Would definitely recommend them and the service from DWI was quick and easy, thanks guys.
Excerpt: Great sound and fit. But beware as the sound is transmitted over the 2.4gHz frequency the same as most Wi-Fi signals. It caused my Wi-Fi to be non-existent which was disappointing as I bought these for online gaming and watching Blu-Rays. The sales rep told they would fine when I purchased them. When I tried taking them back the Store Manager refused to refund my money. So buy at your own risk.
Summary: Bought the item to allow me to watch TV without disturbing others. The product does an excellent job and its features are great. I have no problems with the product. For price and quality, it matches and, in most cases, betters other products on the market.
Excerpt: Chose these over the RS180 as these are closed with better physical blocking of ambient noises. I'm a tough customer (electronic/audio engineer) but am very happy with the RS170. They are cleverly designed and the sound is very good. Bass and treble is not quite as good as wired headphones of the same cost, but still good, and there is no hiss, a minimal transmission delay, and terrific battery life.
Excerpt: Clear sound for both music and cinema. Without surround on you get crisp clear sound for music and with a press of a button it changes to surround sound for watching a movie. Really sounds like you have speakers behind and more in front. Great price - arrived in 2 days. really happy so buying another pair of just the headphones (HDS170) so both of us can listen to the same sound at the same time.
Summary: Haven't bought headphones for over 20 years and they were the IR kind. Well, how things have moved on! Great sound, very comfortable and very well made. Purely subjective of course as I have nothing with which to compare. I bought these for a home recording project so I chose the 'closed-back' version (RS170) to block out external noise which, works very well indeed! They also block any sound 'spillage' to others very effectively.
Excerpt: decided to upgrade to the rs170, so far so good, great range and not many dropouts throughout my house, audio quality is great/fantastic. when it drops out of range it just cuts out with a quiet beep and no static noise. Also no static noise when the audio is not playing after a period of time. Overall very comfortable and fit very well without falling off. im glad I decided to upgrade from my RS120.
Summary: Writing this whilst listening to the RS 170. Awesome sound straight from the box let alone when they are run in. The first thing you will find tricky is getting them out of the box without first destroying it but is is possible and the plastic hook at the top is not attached to the plastic inner, it is just a very tight fit.
Summary: The reason I give these Headphones 3 stars is the lack of bass response.They have a bass boost button but all that does is make the bass( which I consider light) louder. They're comfortable to wear and basically do what you expect from a pair of headphones. I haven't experienced them dropping out at any stage so from that point they're fine. Handy headphones.
