Conclusion: I purchased a Sennheiser RS 170 to help me hear better when I watch movies and television on my Sam Sung & Bose surround sound system. I listen with the head set and everyone else in the room can hear through the normal sound system....it works great!
Conclusion: My headphones just arrived today. First time for ordering from Sonic Electronix. Fast delivery. Took everything out of the box, hooked it up to my Toshiba 42" HD Flat screen. Connected everything, put batteries in headphones, turned transmitter on and Hallelujah, they work like a charm.
Pros: Excellent Sound and very comfortable fit. Using it to listen to TV so I don't have to raise volume. Discovered the background music in many shows and movies to be excellent that could not hear normally. Excellent gift for someone with a hear disability.
Cons: The headset fits so comfortable and dampens external noise in the room. Can be a problem if someone is trying to get your attention - or maybe not. If this is a problem Sennheiser Silver RS 120 version not as comfortable or tight fitting but does a nice job - also RS 120 has a longer range.

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...
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.
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.
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...
Conclusion: This product is everything that the salesman at BestBuy told me it would be, if I ordered it from them at a MUCH higher cost! I am very pleased with the performance, sound, and quality and did appreciate the price this company offered.
