Fantastic headphones, shadowed slightly only by their range and difficulty moving
4 January 2014
Summary: Pros: - Incredible sound - Different settings for music and films, optimising them for exactly what you want - Can purchase additional headphones and sync them to the same station - Surround sound and bass boost is highly noticeable and enjoyable - Great battery life - Very comfortable to wear -...
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. Great
Excerpt: Great sound and fit. But beware as the sound is transmitted over the 2.4gHz frequency the same as most Wi-Fi signals.

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...
