Summary: My wife and I both use Sennheiser RS-160, RS-170 and RS-180 wireless headphones. I use the RS-160 in the shack with my transceivers. We both use the RS-170 and RS-180 for listening to old time radio shows every evening, allowing us to listen without interruption regardless of what we do or where we move about in the house. Very light weight and comfortable. Extremely durable, considering they are so light weight.
Conclusion: Bought this for myself and a supplemental headphones (HDR170) for my girlfriend. Over the years I bought a few headphones from Sennheiser and always was satisfied. This one doesn't disappoint either. Sound is superb and I never loss the signal from one end of the house to the other. Like someone said about hearing loss it gives us the opportunity to adjust the volume to our own taste. They are lightweight and work on 2 AAA battery.
Conclusion: I brought these over a month ago, I have a very bad hearing loss and with the tv volume all the way up I could hear ok but still couldn't understand what was said and my wife couldn't stay in the same room because the tv was so loud. Now with the head phone she can turn the volume to where she wants it and I can set my RS170 where I want them,the voice is so must clearer and I can understand what is said.
Conclusion: I spent a lot of time researching wireless headphones and these are what I ended up with and I couldn't be more please! The sound is fantastic with no dropout at all. I haven't tested the range yet but I haven't reached the limit yet while wandering around my home, including going into different rooms. The only (slightly) negative is finding the correct switch on the right headphone.
Excerpt: I needed headphones to use with my TV so I could listen to it during the night and early morning, at the same time muting the TV sound, so the lady in the upstairs condo would not be bothered by the TV. Before buying this set, I had bought 3 others in town, all around $100-130. They all had problems like static, buzzing, and cutting off. It became obvious to me that I would have to pay more. This Sennheiser 170 has been ideal.
Pros: Added features, Comfortable, Compact Design, Easy Hook Up, Easy Set up, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality
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.
