Summary: Tried it at a friends and was amazed at the sound and that I was able to understand every word. I was so delighted I bought another one for my husband......we are both very happy with it Have not compared it with others as I felt there was no need.
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.
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: I had two of these headphones. The first I had to send back after about six months - it stopped working. With Amazons returns policy I was able to get a replacement. The second set stopped working after about 14 months. Still within the manufactures guarantee, I had to pay to post it to them for repair. The return supposedly within 10 to 15 days, was eventually sent back after a month (following two phone calls by me).
Summary: Bought a set of these, also a set of spare headphones for two people wanting to listen. They are first rate. I cannot go back to speakers now, unless I was offered Definitive Technology set up. You get what you pay for so don't bother with other cheaper sets. Four stars is because they are still bulky when sat on your head and tight fitting.Thought inventions were going the thin way nowadays so why not headphones?
