Summary: These are the best wifi headphones. Period. Are they better then your wired monitors cans? No. Are they better then every other wifi or bluetooth headset avaialble right now? YES! I listen to wireless phones alot. From the closed and thermal old sennhiesers, to the sonys wifi debackle, to the astounding AKG heroes 787's. And these are the best so far.
Summary: I am extremely impressed with the sound quality and battery life of these most excellent headphones. I bought these headphones to enable me to enjoy late night movies, without disturbing the flat above. The sound quality is imcredible, you hear things in the background that are completely absent when watching through my average quality TV, i guess those who own a top spec telly won't be as impressed as i am!
Excerpt: I have had these headphones for about a week now and am extremely pleased with my purchase. I will start with the most important aspects. Many wireless headphones have poor quality as many use fm to transmit the audio and is compressed, it also can "hiss" a lot. These headphones use Kleer's wireless to transmit uncompressed audio and the result is nothing short of superb.
Pros: Great audio quality, Great range, great battery life, Very good noise cancellation, Very comfortable
Summary: I recently bought these and they are miles better than the cheaper version, which are not as comfortable, do not sit on the stand or re-charge. Treat yourself - these really are worth the extra cost. Also I am useless with technology and they were really easy to set up.
Summary: I bought a set of these for my PS3 sessions where the other half gets a bit fed up with the volume, wanted good headphones without the hassle of a cable dangling across the room between the TV and myself, so after looking around at reviews and prices decided to give these a bash. Couldn't be happier, the sound quality is excellent, no hassle at all to set up as everything is already paired and so far after a wander around the flat have not found any dead spots at all...
Summary: I had never heard of that brand of headphones, I bought them on amazon after recommendations and reading the reviews. Received them today and so far they seem great. The quality of the sound is great and I loved walking around my house whilst being able to listen to my TV set (including on the first floor)! They have a great range (I might not have much metal in the walls!). The headphones were beeping at first.
Brilliant sound reproduction but exceedingly poor range

Summary: The claimed 80 metre range is ridiculous. I used to have a pair of Sennheiser headphones that worked on FM and I could get faithful reproduction walking out the house and over a block away. With these I can move around my flat and it can cut out after about 3 metres! I live in an old building so the walls are pretty solid but compared to the promised 80 metres this is poor.
Summary: I chose these after looking at the specs. of several types and from different suppliers. These were the best value for money for the use that I needed. That is good quality closed type for late night movie listening, and best versitility. They were paid for with a Amazon voucher as an xmas present and the rest with a card. Delivery: Ordered on 27th December and arrived within two working days, even though the bad weather was hampering postal deliveries.
Summary: Unaccustomed to writing reviews as I am,,, I will give a brief rundown of the sennheiser RS 170. I bought these through Amazon. I had to consider the price, how would they work through a PC and could I figure what cables and adapters would I need. The sennheiser rs 170 set arrived a few days after order (well done Amazon). I opened the packaging and felt somewhat overwhelmed. I don't know anything about audio technology. I need not have worried.
Excerpt: This pair of headphones surprised me. The headphones are comfortable to wear for a couple hours. The surround feature was nice and the bass boost really gave this pair some very good bass. I use the pair for watching movies and they held up very well on the most challenging scenes. Sound was crystal clear all over my house.
Pros: high quality sound, good transmitter range, highly reliable reception
