  • Excerpt: I use the RS 170's to watch T.V. late night without disturbing anyone in the house sleeping. The RS 170 is well made and the ear pads are soft and comfortable for wearing for several hours. they have a surround sound and bass boost buttons as well as volume. I've only listened to music once so far (one of the T.V sat. stations) but sound was good. comes with the new standard 3.5 plugin with an adapter for old 1/4 stereo plug and red/white adaptor.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Easy To Use

  • Excerpt: Here's the thing.........sound great when you have them on.........battery lasts a while...... only draw back is LG TV is not able to send sound to headphones and TV speakers at the same time.... Plug in headphones and they mute TV...Tv issue not head phones. Love them so far....Oh and thanks to my loving wife for the Fathers Day gift.. Now I can enjoy Horror movies while she's in bed sleeping at a loud volume!!
  • Pros: Comfortable, Compact Design, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality

  • 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.

  • 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. the buttons as many others have written about, A VERY weak point....Read many reviews before you buy !
  • Pros: A-1 Fit, Comfortable, Great Sound Quality
  • Cons: China Built, Control Buttons, Difficult To Use, No Wall Mounting With It

  • 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
