Techbargains Review - Sennheiser RS 180 Digital Wireless Headphones
17 April 2014
Summary: These headphones are a big improvement from Sennheiser's previous models and they raise the bar high enough that going wireless no longer feels like a painful compromise. While I'll still take a multiple speaker home theater experience every time, the RS 180s fill a niche that will see much use in my home. Highly recommended.
Pros: Wireless, Sound quality, No interference, Charging cradle/transmitter
Conclusion: The Sennheiser RS 180 wireless headphone sounds so good that critics say it can be hard to tell the difference from wired headphones in the same price class. Compared to other wireless headphones, hiss and interference are greatly reduced. The wireless range is excellent too, as long as you don't let too many walls get in the way.
Pros: Amazing sound quality, Comfortable, Good wireless range, Automatic Level Control
Cons: Awkward button placement, Some minor sound lag
Excerpt: All other things being equal, I’d guess most of us would rather have wireless than wired headphones. It is pretty obvious that cords get in the way, cords require you to remove headphones to get up and find an old CD, and cords restrict your dance moves. Of course, cords are so much a part of headphones that we don’t think about the limitations they impose.
Summary: The RS 180 comes across as an average sounding pair of wireless headphones. For a price of Rs. 17,990, one expects a lot more than that. We were pretty impressed though, with the range but we would also have liked much better audio quality to go with it. It’s easy to get this kind of performance of wired phones for a lot less. The fact that the RS 180 is not very good at isolating noise doesn’t help the cause either.
Summary: The list of the Sennheiser RS180’s specification highlights is long, but we’ll get to all that in just a moment. In the meantime, consider how exciting it would be to own a pair of wireless headphone that come with a dock that not only reminds you of an Atari logo but, with the headphones in situ, looks like it’s about to walk off and start picking on less capable ‘phones. We’d forgive our wireless headphones a lot just for looking like this.
New RS180 Sennheiser Wireless Headphones The Best Ever
9 December 2009
Summary: Every so often we come across a product that is a redesign of an existing product and in the case of the new RS 180 wireless headphone from Sennheiser, the upgrade is a dramatic improvement on what was previously a great product.
Pros: The system delivers crystal clear audio, which one expects when buying a Sennheiser product. There is no hissing or static when I put a Blu-ray movie and CD on hold and no other interference when channels were changed. The sound output is as good as any I have heard from a pair of wireless headphones.
Cons: The only downside is that the volume and balance controls are now buttons and are not as easy to find or adjust as a knob which was found on previous models. The on/off button needs to be relocated on the headphones. Despite this these are an excellent set of cans and well worth the money as they will last for a long time.
