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: Very realistic sound and good bass and surround, I went with 'closed' back headphones to avoid any issues with my wife overhearing what I'm listening to....so I avoided both the higher-end Sennheiser RS180 and RS220 because of their 'open' back construction,
Conclusion: This product is everything that the salesman at BestBuy told me it would be, if I ordered it from them at a MUCH higher cost! I am very pleased with the performance, sound, and quality and did appreciate the price this company offered.
Excerpt: I use the RS 170 for music and tv viewing(especially movies). The sound is wonderful and completely free from the interference of my last set of Acoustic Research headphones. Like others, I do not like having to turn these on at the base and also on the headset itself.
Pros: Comfortable, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality

Excerpt: I work on my equipment out in the driveway, my RF signal is good for 105 feet.. I took whole unit to home depot & fitted it nice into a black hanging shower soap rack...now hung eye level on shop wall. Very well built, but I will mod.
Pros: A-1 Fit, Comfortable, Great Sound Quality
Cons: China Built, Control Buttons, Difficult To Use, No Wall Mounting With It
Summary: I bought these headphones in December 2014. LOVE them. Great sound, feel very nice on my head. Many hours of use before they need charging! Recently I had an issue with the headphones not charging when put on the base. I wasnt sure if there was something that I was doing wrong.
Pros: Great sound quality, nice fit, surround sound is very nice,
Cons: None, other than that one problem with the phones not charging at some point when in base. Which was quickly remedied when calling Crutchfield. ??
