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...
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.
Pros: Amazing sound quality, Comfortable, Good wireless range, Automatic Level Control
Cons: Awkward button placement, Some minor sound lag
Summary: When I got these I had a set of HD-25s which I've had for a decade and I expected the same superior quality from Sennheiser, however I'm quite disappointed. I really want to love these headphones, I really do, but the interference in the headphones really destroys the experience.
Summary: I got these headphones to wear at night so I didn't disturb my neighbors when I was watching tv or movies at night. I haven't used Sennheiser's other wireless headphones but these seem to put out sound nearly on par with my HD 595s. They do get warm over extended use.
Summary: I bought these headphones just before starting redecorating my house. I have used the headphones while painting my house and it was a great experience. The digital connection between transmitter and phones was never lost, not even when they were separated by two floors of armoured concrete.
Pros: Very comfortable, affordable, great for movies
Cons: Somewhat analytical for classical music, influences wifi connectivity of laptops etc., buttons on the phones tiny.
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.
