Summary: I'm no audiophile but these babies are the bees knees as far as I'm concerned. I bought them so my long suffering wife doesn't have to listen to what she describes as a swarm of disgruntled wasps in a drum. You and I know it as Formula 1. As yet I've not had chance to use them for said purpose but the sound reproduction is so good that I frequently use them when watching TV. They are also quite effective for avoiding conversations you don't want.
Summary: THE BEST ON EAR HEADPHONES I HAVE EVER HAD. These headphones are great.The sound quality is excellent-no annoying hiss that you get from other makes.The bass and surround sound functions are excellent for movies and gaming ect.The only negative thing about them is that the leather rim around the headphone's (which are very comfortable) does get a little sweaty if you wear them for over an hour.I would definitely recommend these headphones to anyone looking for a great...
Summary: On the basics, these are comfortable headphones with high quality sound - it is a different experience to the old InfraRed (IR) headphones which used to crackle and break up. Aside from the usual volume control, there is a 3D-like effect which gives an airy feel without sounding too processed and a bass boost. Connecting up, with my TV I found it best to use the line out rather than the headphone socket - the headphone socket had volume issues.
Summary: Pros: Crystal clear sound 99% of the time, almost as good as decent corded headphones. Very comfy. Easy charging. Cons: Poor design of controls. Bass distortion at higher volumes. I've bought cheap cordless headphones in the past and they've always suffered from hiss and poor reception. Not the RS170s ! The sound quality is excellent compared to cheaper headphones and is on a par with corded mid-range stuff.
Summary: Bought 30/06/2010. Delivery time as promised by Amazon. User's Manual + Quick Guide + Instruction manual on CD. Easy setup. Excellent quality. Would recommend to anyone with a hearing problem.
Summary: Promptly delivered next day, as per usual from Amazon and the Marketplace. The headphones are a case of plug in and go! No setting up and always work when switched on. Sound is crystal clear and extremely rich. The communication technology between the base and headphones does not compress the signal, hence no loss of quality unlike ALL other wireless headphones on the market. Comfortable to wear for extended periods. Pricey but well worth the investment.
Brilliant way to listen to TV all over the house and not disturb others

Summary: These headphones are great and do just what I needed them to. I live in a flat which is relatively small but has thick walls and I have never had any problem receiving crystal clear audio any where in the home. For long sessions listening I started to find them a little uncomfortable after an hour or so initially but perhaps that was me just getting used to them as now a month or so in, I feel perfectly comfortable wearing them at least that long.
Summary: I had the RS140 which are great, but you still do get hissing at times and I really wanted digital instead. Had these a day and they are absolutely fantastic!!! Easy to set up, so comfortable and feel very light. Better fit around around the ears and the sound quality is shockingly good!! Music just sounds sooooo much better and of course, no hissing!! If you're investing in headphones and don't really want to keep buying them, get these, you wont regret it.
Summary: I've been using a pair of AKG pro phones for probably 30 years now and finally decided to change so that I can watch TV while the wife is in bed without having to sit in the only seat in range of the cable. I looked at lots of reviews, some strange eg "I can't wear my headphones while I have guests because there's a delay which creates an echo if the speakers are on" - why? and some quite informative.
Summary: I bought these for watching blu rays & gaming on my PS3, and in the month I have been using them I have not been disappointed once. The sound quality is excellent. In fact is is so good it has shown up a couple of blu rays to have poor quality periods in the soundtrack, but in the main PCM, Dolby and DTS HD soundtracks shine. The surround sound option does add some depth to the sound stage, but i find the bass boost a bit to overpowering.
