Sennheiser RS170

JohnD, Crutchfield
2 December 2013
  • 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.

RS-170

MD, Crutchfield
23 May 2012
  • Summary: I will be returning the RS-170s. We had trouble syncing with receiver and TV. When we did get the units syncd we had busy/high pitched noise
  • Cons: No advantage over our wired headphones (had to run wire from TV or receiver (not worth it). Had trouble syncing units (repeatedly)

Buzzing and hissing? Not for $280.

Balasarius, Bestbuy
15 September 2011
  • Summary: I purchased these for an office environment. It's possible the many wireless networks were creating some kind of interference? I'm not sure.
  • Pros: Very comfortable
  • Cons: Buzzing and hissing, very expensive.

Good and Bad

Barrett K., Newegg
22 December 2010
  • Summary: Obviously the person who designed this never actually used the headphones. The problem is it's almost impossible to find the volume switches with your fingers when you are wearing the headphones.The switches are cheap popple switches under plastic buttons that are almost flush with the headphone shell. The button plastic is the same as the shell so there is no tactile way to find the button.
  • Pros: I upgraded from a Sennheiser HDR 130, an open back design. A definite improvement in background noise, Max volume is less than the HDR 130 but adequate, would be convenient to have more gain range to make up for low level material.
  • Cons: The user interface is just total junk.

Not really Digital

Pierre, J&R
1 January 2010
  • Summary: The Digital in the product description refers to the transmission only. A true Digital headphone should have Digital input. At this price point, one would expect to see they use either Optical or Coaxial digital input. I also own the Panasonic wireless Dolby Surround headphones which sounds much better. The only problem with it is that I must sit in front of the transmitter (within 45 degree) or the infrared signals will be lost.
  • Pros: Attractive Design
  • Cons: Poor Sound Quality

Two Stars = Could be better

  • Summary: I purchased it knowing it had no digitial audio input, but did not check prior to purchase on my flat screen TV or blu-ray player if I had an analog/headset output

Plast för högt pris!

kottsork, Siba
28 February 2014
  • Excerpt: Köpte hörlurarna för ett par månader sen och de fungerar bra hittills. När man ser priset så antar man att det kommer vara så pass bra ljud att du blir helt ställd. Men för att vara helt ärlig så är det inget speciellt med ljudet utan det skulle fungera med ett par för 500 kronor istället. + Lång batteritid med de batterier som medföljer. + Bra räckvidd. - Högt pris. - Susande ljud i bakrunden.

RS 170 - En suosittele musisointiin viiveen takia

Teppo79, Verkkokauppa
9 August 2013
  • Summary: Soitan kitaraa ja bassoa, ostin kuulokkeet pelkästään musisointia varten. Ensituntuma ei ole hyvä, viivettä on liikaa. Pikaisen googlettelun perusteella viive on kuulokkeissa 25ms luokkaa. Ei varmasti haittaa mitään musiikkia kuunnellessa, mutta soittaessa viiveen huomaa heti. Aiemmin minulla oli käytössä Sennheiser RS 120, tässä (halvemmassa) mallissa viivettä ei ollut lainkaan. Oma moka kun en googletellut asiaa ennen ostamista. RS 170 oli melkoinen pettymys minulle..
