  • Summary: Great sounding pair of headphones. They are light & comfortable. As many reviewers have stated, the controls are small & hard to use w/ the headphones on, but I use them for listening to music & rarely make any volume changes. The range on these headphones is pretty good. I use them primarily in my woodshop I built in a corner of my automotive shop- my automotive shop is metal building over 120 foot long & these will work all over my shop & in both of my offices.

  • 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

  • Summary: The only real disappointment was the sound quality: while it was clear/noise free, it lacks crisp treble and low freq or bass reproduction. i was expecting a rich FULL sound.
  • Pros: Cordless, long range and clear sound at long range.
  • Cons: audio reproduction not as rich as i had expected.

Excellent Wireless Phones for the Money

  • Summary: I did some research before buying. I determined Sennheiser was the best at wireless technology. I could not use wired phones.
  • Pros: Simulated surround sound and bass boost features.
  • Cons: Nothing at this point.

Great headphones!

Russ, Crutchfield
17 January 2014
  • Summary: I've used these headphones for about 3 years now. Used to have some Sony ones but they were garbage in their wireless capability. These produce superb sound quality you will not be disappointed with. Excellent range, never had them cut out or lose sound quality. You will not be disappointed. Unless you buy something else...
  • Pros: Sound quality, works well every time, consistent rock solid. You can connect several headphones to 1 base transmitter!
  • Cons: Cups get a little uncomfortable after hours, maybe they all do. Control buttons are way too small with no differentiating symbol to feel. Takes a while to get used to them so you can work them without taking the headset off. Getting extra headsets to work sometimes takes finesse with your timing in "hitting" the power button on the unit and the headsets can have a delay so you might think the 2nd headset is not working. Give it 10 seconds anyhoo before you try the pow...

Sennheiser RS 170

John S, Crutchfield
17 January 2014
  • Summary: This product delivers a fantastic sound, I used the surround sound. It is too bad that neither my wife or I could adjust the feel of the foam ear cups to maintain a comfortable fit. To us, they became very warm during a prolonged usage of 2 to 3 hours of continuous use.
  • Pros: Great sound quality.
  • Cons: The ear cups became too warm with prolonged use.

Great once you learn how to sync

Mike, B&H Photo
13 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought these so my wife and I can watch movies at night without waking the babies. I was really close to returning this set and the extra one I purchased because I was always having a hard time syncing both headsets to the transmitter. After reading the manual again, I realized I need to hold the power button on both headsets first for 7 secs, then the transmitter alone for 7 secs and worked right away!
  • Pros: Comfortable, Great Sound Quality
  • Cons: Difficult To Use

Exactly What I Wanted

DG, Crutchfield
8 January 2014
  • Summary: I was looking to replace a less expensive set of wireless headphones and these fit the bill. Extremely good noise cancellation without any hiss. The headphones have a pretty good range, with little drop in sound quality. The surround sound and extra bass features provide numerous variations of sound that are fun to play with.
  • Pros: Great style and comfort--excellent sound quality and range
  • Cons: slightly more expensive, but worth it
