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
Summary: Another plus: A single transmitter can feed up to four pairs of headphones, so multiple users can listen simultaneously. It's possible to find wired headphones of similar quality for less, but if you want a truly excellent set of headphones with wireless convenience, you won't find a better choice than the RS 180.
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 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.
Excerpt: Das Hörresultat ist trotz kabelloser Übertragung nahezu perfekt. Punkten kann der Sennheiser RS 180 bei Filmen und Spielen. Hier klingen die Höhen brillant und die Tiefen ertönen sauber akzentuiert. Auch die Klangfülle ist klasse, sie ist so einnehmend, dass der Träger immer das Gefühl hat, er sitzt „mittendrin“. Die Übertragung des Signales (Stereo) funktioniert einwandfrei, Störgeräusche sind uns beim Test nicht aufgefallen. Wir vergeben 4.5 von 5 Sternen.
