Excerpt: I needed headphones to use with my TV so I could listen to it during the night and early morning, at the same time muting the TV sound, so the lady in the upstairs condo would not be bothered by the TV. Before buying this set, I had bought 3 others in town, all around $100-130. They all had problems like static, buzzing, and cutting off. It became obvious to me that I would have to pay more. This Sennheiser 170 has been ideal.
Pros: Added features, Comfortable, Compact Design, Easy Hook Up, Easy Set up, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality
Summary: Just what I had hoped for. I can listen to movies and shows that have loud bass and not have to jump for the remote to turn the sound down. I don't have to wear hearing aides to hear the dialogue!
Pros: Easy to set up and use. I can sit 20 ft. away in the den and not miss a sound.I can even go to the kichen for a refill and still hear what's going on.
Summary: I purchased these 2 years ago so I could study on-line school in peace since my wife or kids want to be watching TV where I am. The wife was not excited at all to use them at first, now she thinks they are the best gift I've given her. I am ordering a second set of headphones today so we can watch movies in the bedroom at a volume I can hear without keeping the kids awake with explosions, car chases, or language.
Pros: Long battery life (well over 5 hours usually), great sound, comfortable enough to fall asleep while wearing
Cons: Could use a second docking station or extension of the main station for charging a second headphone set.
Summary: Brought to use with TV, very good for this.
Pros: Great wireless signal, very easy to set up.
Cons: Control buttons on the headphones difficult to use while wearing, sound quality is very good but not great, but everyone varies in what sounds the best and I am used to high quality studio grade phones
