Techbargains Review - Sennheiser RS 180 Digital Wireless Headphones

techbargains.com
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
  • Cons: Price, Range, Volume buttons

Sennheiser RS 180

16 July 2013
  • 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

Expert Review

  • Conclusion: The Sennheiser RS 180 may be a little wide and heavy but for wire-free audio they certainly deliver in terms of build and audio quality.
  • Pros: The Sennheiser RS 180 has a great built quality to it. Made largely from plastic with felt lining to the headband and covers to the ear-pieces have a subtle almost workman-like look and feel to them. The headphones are fitted with balance and automatic level controls mounted on the right headphone. These allow you to control the volume as well as pitch the balance perfectly between the right and left cans. Sennheiser claim up to 24 hours of music from a full charge, w...
  • Cons: These are quite a wide and heavy set of headphones. With a battery fitted inside each can and the charging connector sitting at the top of headband, you’ll find the overall weight of 240g can become a little tiresome if you wear them for long periods.

Sennheiser RS 180 Wireless Headphone (Playback 33)

AVguide
14 July 2011
  • 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.

Sennheiser RS 180 Wireless Headphones

Tech2
13 July 2011
  • 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.

Sennheiser RS 180 wireless headphones

CNET
21 April 2011
  • Summary: The Sennheiser RS 180's sound is competitive with similarly priced wired headphones, which should make the RS 180 irresistible to audiophiles seeking to cut the cord.
  • Cons: The awkwardly placed controls on the right earcup might take a while to master, and its ambitious price tag coupled with an analog-only input may put off some buyers.

Sennheiser RS 180

What Hi-Fi?
3 June 2011
  • Excerpt: There are no fewer than five models in Sennheiser's RF wireless range. The RS 180s are pricey, but they're worth it. The tower-like transmitter doubles as a hanger for the 'phones and charges the two AAA NiMH concealed in the cups. The shape is identical to that of the RS 160s, and both models use KLEER's ‘lossless' RF system, but the 180s benefit from nicer materials – and so a more premium and comfortable feel. The 180s are open-backed, and sound benefits as a result.
  • Pros: Premium, comfortable feel, punchy, detailed sound
  • Cons: Not cheap

Sennheiser RS180 review

Stuff.tv
3 March 2010
  • 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.

Démo du Sennheiser RS 180

CNET
31 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Ce casque au design ouvert circum aural est muni de 2 écouteurs entourés de velours assurant l’isolation vis à vis des bruits ambiants. Le Sennheiser RS 180 fonctionne grâce à 2 piles AAA rechargeables en posant simplement le casque sur sa base, l’autonomie annoncée étant d’environ 24h. Outre sa fonction de recharge, la base peut également connecter 3 autres casques HDR 180, soit le modèle vendu sans base, permettant ainsi à 4 personnes d’écouter la même source audio.

21 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Casque qui a un très bon son (meilleur que mon HD200 de la même marque), son chaud mais dynamique, casque très confortable malgré la présence d'accumulateurs dans les oreillettes. La portée est bonne (une vingtaine de m sans obstacle, retrancher quelques mètres par mur selon leur épaisseur. En gros, aucun souci quand on reste dans...
