Never would come on

J.R., B&H Photo
1 February 2015
  • Excerpt: I tried everything to get these to come on. I have a cheaper model and it works fine, although the distance isn't all that great. I tried to get help with this product through the company ... It's a no go ... Just e-mails with no help at all. Never could talk to a human. Sennheiser customer support is one of the worse ones out there. On a brighter note BH Photo is one of the best in customer support and promptly sent me a return label for the product.

RS 180 Transmitter Failure

GL, Crutchfield
3 January 2013
  • Summary: Owned the RS 180 for 2 years, 1 month and the transmitter failed. Transmitter will not turn on.
  • Pros: none
  • Cons: Awfully expensive equipment to have fail so quickly. Might as well buy another brand than pay the repair cost.

Don't Purchase

BBoop, B&H Photo
7 May 2012
  • Excerpt: I recently had entire new systems installed in my small bedroom, all of which are high end. My systems were purchased and installed by a professional. I decided on the Sennheiser RS 180 Wireless Digital Headphone mostly because of the transmission range of up to 320 feet. I can't even move 25 feet into another room without these expensive headphones losing sound. What a disappointment.

Would not buy again

John, B&H Photo
29 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Touted as having a greater sound range than their other products, don't believe it. This makes the 4th Sennheiser product I have purchased and it is the worst while supposedly being their best.
  • Cons: Not Durable, Poor Reception

Essess "dormouse", Amazon

  • Summary: If you listen to solo instrumentals, piano solo in particular, then you will find little joy in using these headphones - each time a sustain drops below a (quite high) level then the transmitter electronics will mute the sound resulting in fractures to the sound stream lasting anything from a tenth of a second up to a second or more, the restart then abruptly cuts in to the attack as the next note is played.

Reluctantly returning these...

A. Taylor "farheadingley", Amazon
10 December 2012
  • Summary: These headphones are stunning. The quality is superb and they are incredibly comfortable to wear. Unfortunately the range is pretty poor. Wandering around my house causes them to 'drop out' regularly and predictably. I'm attempting to replace my clapped out Sennheiser HDR45s, these are reliable even at the bottom of my garden. Speaking to Sennheiser, they informed me that the RS120s are probably what I need as a replacement. So I'm reluctantly returning the RS180s.

Fehlkonstruktion

kairubenbauer, eBay.de
19 August 2014
  • Summary: Ich wollte Funkkopfhörer zum Fernsehen, und zwar offene, da ich bei geschlossenen immer Ohrjucken bekomme. Weil ich Wert auf Qualität lege, suchte ich gezielt nach teuren Kopfhörern, in der Annahme, dass diese dann auch hochwertig seien. Mit meinen bisherigen Kopfhörern (bekannte Marke aus Japan) war ich immer sehr zufrieden, aber leider gibt’s davon keinen „offenen FUNK-Kopfhörer“. Deshalb kaufte ich mir welche von Sennheiser, vom Typ RS 180.
