Summary: This is my second set of Sennheiser headphones--one gift given to me at Christmas. Liked them so much, got a second set for my Dad. Great as an early riser to be able to watch television without waking up the hubby! The Crutchfield customer service was excellent to deal with.
Pros: Fabulous sound quality; long battery life between charges
Summary: The sound quality is very good so long as your are not hoping to listen to music with soft passages. These are squelched or masked by a buzzy noise. I was hoping to use these several rooms away from my stereo, however even 60ft away I find that there are spots were the rf signal drops out.
Pros: OK for rock music or TV
Cons: Not for music with quiet passages. Not reliable for use in rooms other than where the transmitter is located.
Excerpt: I had to return the first headset because it would not charge. Quality control might need to be improved. The replacement headset works just fine. The manufacturer might want to improve on the on and off switch on the headset.
Summary: These are really good headphones. I had to return them because I am 80 years old and needed phones that reduce bass sounds. The bass in today's phones and speakers block voices so I cannot understand half of what is being said. The phones, as I said, are great.
Pros: Easy hookup Quality sound in other rooms of the house. As good as BOSE without wires.
Cons: No good for older ears as bass sounds that are needed for good stereo blocks voice quality with movies or news.
Summary: Excellent build quality and very comfortable. Sound quality very good for the price range. Would buy them again. And importantly, Crutchfield provides the best review and purchase environment.
Excerpt: Bought this so that me and my wife can watch TV in our room while our baby sleeps. Works perfectly for it. I bought the 170 over the 180 because I needed the open air design so that i can hear my baby when he cries. fit is comfy for me and i have a big head.
Excerpt: Sound is clear,no hiss at all. I use for TV,Movies and Music. The right amount of bass and the surround sound is better than expected for headphones. I have walked in all rooms of my house and outdoors and the sound never changes.
Pros: Clear signal, Comfortable, Durable, Good Bass, Great Sound, Stylish
