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.
The build quality is good and very lightweight so I can easily watch a movie and remain comfortable, however it is plasticy feeling so they may not be very durable if they're not treated well .
Excerpt: the rs180 sennheiser wireless headphones are<br />unconfortable, and the controls on the<br />headphones are not easy to use. controls should<br />be raised for easy access instead of being<br />flush. headphones have great sound, but cannot<br />wear them for only a short time due to hurting<br />ears.
Sennheiser RS 180 Open Digital Wireless Headphone system: Buyers beware.

Summary: Although apparently more sophisticated (and expensive) than the RS 120 model, it unfortunately does not have the range of the latter. I have a large bungalow. The RS 120 model (which I bought earlier) allows me to move anywhere within the bungalow and extensive garden whilst receiving perfect sound from the headphones. The RS 180 however has limited range, and there are areas of the bungalow where the sound from the headphones drops out altogether.
Inferior to the older Sennheiser RS 130's in almost every way

Summary: I got these headphones to replace my faithful, but aging, Sennheiser RS 130 cordless headphones. The RS 180's are part of the new digital range designed to take over from the old analogue RS 120/130/140 series. First impressions, on opening the box, were that these headphones were quite a bit smaller than my old RS130's. The dock / transmitter is also a little bit more compact than I expected from its picture, which I was personally pleased about.
Completely interferes with wireless broadband. Only good for TV use.

Summary: The build quality and sound quality using the KLEER technology makes the sound experience broader, deeper and more superior to older non-KLEER headsets, and it should do for the price, but it is pointless if you wish to use it with a computer that also uses wireless to access the internet.
Summary: Well, the sound quality is excellent, no question about that. Extremely clear, nice base punch, crisp treble. Easy to wear. Great duration. Minuses: Interferes strongly with wireless network (linksys wrt54gl and a wap54g). Moving the net-channels has no effect, so the only solution will be to move the sender farther away from the computer. And I'm a computer pro, so yes, I've tried to differ the channels as well. No change.
Summary: Have used the previous incarnation of these (Sennhesier RS 140) on an almost daily basis for a long while, so was looking forward to this update of the range. Bought a pair of RS 180s, used them for a couple of days, returned them and went back to my RS 140s. First major and inexcusable flaw was to make the control buttons almost flush with the body and then stick the power button between the 2 volume buttons. On what planet is this a good idea?
