Has Interference and annoying to use

sa4321234, CNET
24 December 2014
  • Summary: I'm disappointed in them, persistent interference or something noise in the background all the time. The noise is producible by changing channels with the remote, seems to have something to do with the picture changing on the screen, and it then continues with no remote activity nearly all the time,...
  • Pros: Good sound reproduction
  • Cons: Continual Interference noise and poor button design

  • Summary: The first thing that I do when I get a new product is read the operation manual. This Sennheiser product doesn't have one. They include a CD instead. My PC wouldn't read the CD. Apparently this has something to do with auto start being disabled. I have never had this problem before.

Same ol same ol

  • Summary: I am hard of hearing and i purchased wireless headphones to help me hear speech on my TV. These headphones are the second pair I have purcheaed, the first ones were the 120, they worked well enough but brok in 6 months.
  • Pros: Excellent sound quality these makes it easy to understand recorded voices, ease of use, very comfortable fit, excellent range.
  • Cons: Very cheap plastic construction. Easy to snap off (break) the earphone when adjusting. Awkward placement of controls on the earpiece, you have to remove headphones completely to make adjustments to the sound output.

Alright Headphones

  • Summary: I have been using these for a little over a year now. I bought them to replace my 900 mhz headset, which I was very happy with for many years. I agree with all the comments on having to take headset off to press buttons.
  • Pros: Comfort, charging, distance
  • Cons: speaker quality, operating buttons while wearing

RS 170 Digital Wireless Headphones

  • Excerpt: I use these when I'm on the rowing machine and they perfome well 90% of the time. They block out the sound of the rower effectively enough and provide good, clear stereo sound. I hear a few pops and hisses every time I use them but it usually stops after a few seconds, and is very intermittant.
  • Pros: Good interface, Good price BH, Good sound, Lightweight
  • Cons: "leatherette" material, Some hissing and popping

Sennheiser RS 170 Reviews

  • Summary: Good set of headphones with some old headphone issues.
  • Pros: I like the charging system. The quality is good although I have only used it on TV broadcast and seems adequate. No buzz or hum or his. Comfort is good for about an hour then you need a break.
  • Cons: Sennheiser has been around for ever. I am surprised at the design team.The controls are the really only not acceptable issue with these phones. It is very awkward to try to change the controls in anyway while they are on your head. The controls are too small and poorly located. There should be a ...

Good sound but be wary

Charley, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: First of all, the sound is great. This is a good unit for a single user. However, getting 2 sets to synch at the same time is often difficult. Additionally, the headset becomes uncomfortable and hot when in prolonged use.

User Review

  • Summary: I'm using these to listen to our TV; they are connected to the headphone out.   I bought them to replace my failed Sony MDR-RF4000K, but I'm not too sure if it was worth it. Compared to Sony, I can't really say there is *any* improvement, maybe only when playing GT5 - Sony had a very weird problem...
  • Pros: Sound fairly decent
  • Cons: Cut out when input volume is low; cups are too shallow for my ears, manual switch on
